Very romantic in a particular way, with Salman putting together and surprising Katrina with wonderful things. Which makes me interested in their character dynamics a little bit. Especially because I just re-watched Ek Tha Tiger and it fits nicely with how their relationship was established in that.
What I was reminded of on this watch is that Ek Tha Tiger works because we believe in Salman as a character completely overcome by love. It comes to him late in life and surprises him and he throws himself into it totally, as much as he previously was dedicated to work. And we believe Katrina as a character who needs that huge amount of love and, slowly, lets herself give into it.
Which is what this song builds on! Salman is the romantic one, the one with the huge gestures and so on, and Kat is the one who finds herself going along with it, enjoying something she never thought she would let herself enjoy, wearing a big ball dress and having magical candlelight dinners. But taking care of him in turn, covering him with a blanket when he gets sleepy and generally being the practical one. I assume. From the very little we have seen.
(Just realized that this could also have been Katrina’s future for her Bang Bang character. She just inspires secret agents to run away!)
Plotwise, I guess they are hiding out in Amritsar? But this song seems to cover a lot of time, I wonder if it is a “timepasses” cheat? To indicate that they are having a wonderful romantic adventure all over the world for an indeterminate amount of time?
Oh, and they get engaged! Right? That’s a diamond ring on her hand. Maybe the happy ending will be them finally getting married, after they finish this last mission and no longer have to be on the run?
