The song ‘Muskaanein Jhoothi Hain’ apparently comes at a place in the film when all the suspects of a crime are under the same roof. Kareena Kapoor, rigged alluringly in a red dress with a slit right down in the front, shows her sensuous moves as she lip-syncs the words of Javed Akhtar, set to the hauntingly melodious tune by Ram Sampath.
“Muskaanein jhoothi hai, pehchaane jhoothi hai, rangeeni hai chhayi, phir bhi hai tanhai”.
The song is set in a club but features cutaways of Mumbai’s seedy life as Aamir Khan, playing a cop, cruises through the crowded streets looking for a clue to crack the case that he’s investigating. The film’s story is centered on mysterious murders that happen in the same spot on a Mumbai road. Rani Mukerji plays Aamir’s wife. The husband-wife duo has a bitter past they have yet to come to terms with.
And there are a slew of characters that slip in and out of the spotlight in this club song. Each one wearing a smile that hides a secret beneath.
The song also has a few shots of Kareena Kapoor making her subtle moves on Aamir Khan. She brushes her hand with his while passing by and he follows her to a hotel room.
As intriguing as the film, the song is definitely an enjoyable watch.
