The man says this is a woman and this is alcohol. He asks, out of them, what is true and who is a liar.
Video: Cinematography is by Fali Mistry.
The video opens with Poonam Sinha dancing with Dheeraj Kumar. There is a bottle of whiskey held by someone, beside her. This is a symbolic comparison between the girl and alcohol, which is mentioned in the song. Dev Anand takes a swig and begins the song. Mahmood is smiling and clicking on a bottle in tune with the song.
Poonam Sinha pulls Dheeraj Kumar along and moves to another place to continue dancing. Dev Anand follows her and is still singing. Mahmood stays close to him. Mahmood tries to snatch the bottle of whiskey from Dev Anand’s hand. But, he does not allow him to take it away. He instead downs the entire bottle of whiskey.
Dev Anand staggers and Mahmood holds him. Dev Anand throws the bottle up in the air and Mahmood catches it. The video ends with Mahmood pulling Dev Anand out of the discotheque.
Artists: The playback of this song was sung by Kishore Kumar and onscreen performances are by Dev Anand, Poonam Sinha, Dheeraj Kumar, Mahmood and others.
Cultural Influence: The hero has been ditched by a girl and he laments it. This filmi song is good and so are the artists. The video is watchable for the same.
