Song: The music of this song was composed by Lakshmikant-Pyarelal and the lyrics were penned by Rajendra Kishen.

The man sings, “Oye, hoye. Don’t torture your fair hands. I am present here. I can do the job, well. Order me. Let your virgin hands not be stained. Beloved, your hands will soon take some color from henna (You are yet to get married). Your delicate body is yet to be colored with love. What is the compulsion that a pair of beauties has to perform this kind of labor? Let your virgin hands not be stained. You are the queen of palaces and I am a prince from the middle of the city. Why don’t we share our wealth equally? I will work and you can reign. If you accept this deal, then place your hand on mine. Let your virgin hands not be stained. Let me pacify your anger. Shall I stop the naughty air that blows your hair away? Don’t rub your eyes, while looking at me. The kohl that you have applied will spread and stain the skin near your eyes. Let your virgin hands not be stained.”

The video begins with Shashi Kapoor running away from near a car toward his jeep. When the girls, Kalpana and Rajashree come running toward the car, we realize that Shashi Kapoor has actually punctured one of the wheels of the car.

Both the girls are upset due to the turn of events. He teases the 2 girls and stoops to go below the jeep. The girls pull him up and he begins to tease Rajashree that she is yet to get married.

He completes the task of filling air into the tire and continues to tease them. Now, he is standing atop the front portion of the car. Rajashree begins to drive the car. Shashi Kapoor is still dancing and balancing on top of the car. Rajashree drives the car near the jeep and Shashi Kapoor shifts there. Then, Rajashree backs off and tries to drive away. Shashi Kapoor is seen waving to them.

However, Rajashree cannot drive beyond where she is because Shashi Kapoor has placed some rocks on both the sides of the jeep. Kalpana tells Rajashree to push the jeep and she does so. Thus, the jeep moves backward on the sloping road and moves aside. Rajashree then drives the car away. The video ends with Shashi Kapoor on top of the front of the jeep lamenting.
