Kyon (Hindi:क्यूँ, Urdu: کیوں) "Why" is a song from the 2012 Bollywood film "Barfi".

The song (whose lyrics are longer and somewhat different than those used in the video clip) was written by Neelesh Misra, and the music was composed by Pritam.

The video clip depicts scenes of the movie where the main male protagonist, Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor), who is deaf-mute, and the female protagonist, Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra), who us autistic, embark in a kidnapping situation but end up attached to each other.

A third character, police officer Sudhanshu Dutta (the actor Saurabh Shukla) chases them and provides a comical counterpoint.

The playback singer is Papon.
