The song opens to Ali and his lady love checking into a hotel when Surbhi arrives with her on-screen beau. Stopping in their tracks on spotting each other at the reception, Surbhi and Ali fake smiles and greetings as they move on with their respective partners. The scenes that follow show a flashback of their sudden breakup, a memory triggered by the musical night in the hotel. Though the lead pair are seated on different candle-lit tables with their respective partners, Surbhi evidently turns insecure when Ali’s partner gets cosy with him.

On the other hand, Ali is flooded with memories of his intimate times spent with Surbhi and hides moist eyes. He leaves the hall and Surbhi follows him. The song ends on a note of acceptance where the two, though meeting secretly, exchange only smiles and a relatable emotion for each other. The song is a heartbreaking melody in Vishal’s soulful voice which proves that moving on is not always easy and even when a person leaves, the lovers live on consoling memories.
