Movie: This song is featured in 1966 comic caper Neend Hamari Khwab Tumhare (My Sleep and your Dreams) directed by Shiv Sahni and produced by Hans Choudhary under the banner of Movie Monuments. The movie starred Shashi Kapoor, late Nanda, late Om Prakash, late Nirupa Roy, late Balraj Sahni, etc.

Nishad (Nanda) is the only wealthy daughter of Delhi-based Khan Bahadur (Balraj Sahni) and her Mom (Nirupa Roy). She has 3 suitable bachelors running behind her. Shaukat Khan is the bankrupt son of Nawab Hamid Khan. Shibbu is the distant relative of Nishad’s mother. The third is Anwar, the only son of Nawab Ajmutullah Khan Farooqui. Ajmatullah, before coming to Delhi was a barber by profession. But, he often bought lottery tickets and one day won a big amount. The family shifted to Delhi and assumed the title of Nawab with fictitious antecedents. After a few dates, Nishad falls in love with Anwar. He acts as if he does not know any sports and Nishad teaches him.

One day, Nanda finds out that he was actually a champion when he used to live elsewhere. She gets angry and moves away from the club toward a garden. She meets Anwar on the way but does not talk to him. When he realizes what had happened, he follows Nishad to the garden and sings this song.

Song: The music of this song was composed by Madan Mohan and the lyrics were penned by Rajinder Kishan.

In this song, the girl is upset with the man and he tries to appease his beloved.

Video: Cinematography is by V Ratra and the operative cameraman is Chaman K Bajoo.

The video begins as Nanda moves backward in an upset condition. Shashi Kapoor comes running and starts the song. He is standing behind some profusely flowering shrubs. Nanda is wearing a dark gray salwar kameez and Shashi Kapoor is wearing a brown and beige suit. He follows as Nanda runs and prances around the garden.

Shashi Kapoor jumps and dances in his usual style. Then, they dance together as Nanda has reconciled with him. The video ends with Nanda and Shashi Kapoor walking away holding hands.

Artists: The playback of this song was sung by Mohammad Rafi and the onscreen performances are by Shashi Kapoor and Nanda.

Cultural Influence: This is a typical teasing-appeasing situation, where the hero explains to the heroine that he lied to her because he wanted to come closer to her. Usually, people would share these thoughts verbally. The makers have taken the cinematic liberty and introduced a song sequence here. The song is melodious and has been rendered very beautifully by Mohammad Rafi Sahab. The video is watchable for the song and the veteran artists.
