Much ado about Shahrukh Khan’s 'Challa' being copied!

Is 'Challa' from 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' copied? We don’t think so!

There’s much hullabaloo over the Shahrukh Khan track ‘Challa’ from Jab Tak Hai Jaan being copied from the Eagle Eye Cherry track ‘Save Tonight’. However, the similarities are few and far between, we think.

Similar strumming pattern and a few similar chords don’t make two songs the same. If that were the case, half of western music would be labeled copied from the other half. It’s like saying that Bruno Mars’ ‘The Lazy Song’ is copied from Bob Dylan’s ‘Knocking on Heaven’s Door’ because the chord progression (G-D-C in this case) happens to be the same.

Now, ‘Challa’ from Jab Tak Hai Jaan begins with brisk strumming following which the drums kick in. What’s got the detractors confused is the fact that the chord progression of ‘Challa’ is similar to that of ‘Save Tonight’ (Am-F-C-G), but as the song progresses, the chords too vary and the two tracks become as different as chalk and cheese.

By the logic of the detractors, all the songs with the Am-F-C-G progression would be copies of each other, some being Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life”, Eminem’s “Not Afraid”, or Heart’s “Alone”.

If our assertion sounds mumbo-jumbo to you, rest assured that the melody combinations that any single progression posits could be so diverse that many different compositions could be belted out of the same progression.

The upshot: A R Rahman isn’t shorn of talent or ideas to copy songs when he can create award winning numbers.

Enjoy both the songs below and check out for yourself if ‘Challa’ is copied from ‘Save Tonight’.
