Ever since the first photos and teaser for Marvel’s Eternals dropped, Twitter has been finding desi connections in it – like a scene with Gunda’s Ibu Hatela aka Harish Patel.
just wanted y’all to know that the actor who (among other parts) also played the iconic Ibu Hatella in Gunda (Harish Patel) has a part in Marvel’s The Eternals, glimpses of which we saw in the new lineup. Never give up on that dream— Ankur Pathak (@aktalkies) May 4, 2021
But now, after the release of its final trailer, it looks like there is yet another desi connection. Or at least, Twitter seems to think there is.
Yes, according to Twitter sleuths, the theme song of Marvel’s Eternals is a copy of the theme music from Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!.
Writer, lyricist, and stand-up comic Varun Grover first shared this observation on Twitter, comparing Eternals‘ theme music to the hook riff from Pehla Pehla Pyaar Hai.
The hook riff from ‘Pehla pehla pyaar hai’ reworked as the theme music for Marvel’s ETERNALS?https://t.co/4O1oooEef4— वरुण 🇮🇳 (@varungrover) August 19, 2021
And soon after, desi Twitterati joined the discussion, and even served examples of some new comparisons:

The theme music sounds a wee bit too much like the melody of 'Pehla pehla pyaar hai' from Hum Aapke Hain Koun…!— Aisha. (@aishha17_) August 22, 2021
