A Brahmin farmer lives with his 2 nephews in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. When he falls ill, he is treated by a Vaidya (traditional Indian medical practitioner) from another village. The farmer recovers and asks the Vaidya about his fees. The Vaidya only asks if the farmer’s elder nephew would marry his elder daughter. The farmer happily agrees. Thus, Omkar (Inder Thakur) marries Roopa (Mitali). Roopa mingles with her husband’s family very easily. Impressed by her motherly love for him, Omkar’s younger brother Chandan (Sachin) sings this song.

Song: The music of this song was composed by Ravindra Jain and the lyrics were also penned by him.

The gist of the song is, “I really believe that when you came to our home, spring came to our home. Your face is like that of Goddess Lakshmi. You have a motherly love for me. You are one among millions.”

Video: Cinematography is by Sunil Sharma. Dance choreography is by Badri Prasad.

The video opens with Sachin making music from a cane sieve. Mitali is smiling at him. He is sitting on top of a ladder going to the loft. He comes down and begins the song. Inder Thakur enters the house and Sachin welcomes him. They visit the temple of Lord Shiva and Mitali pours milk on the Shiva Linga. Inder Thakur is with her.

Sachin rings the bell outside the sanctum sanctorium. Diwali arrives and they light oil lamps all around the house. He dances with Mitali, a little. The scene shifts to the fields where Sachin and Inder Thakur are working. She gets pregnant and Sachin requests her to give him a cute nephew, who would call him Uncle. The song peters out and the video ends as the men laugh together.

Artists: The playback of this song was sung by Jaspal Singh and the onscreen performances are by Sachin, Inder Thakur, Mitali and others.

Cultural Influence: There is a lot of Bhojpuri traditional influence on this song. The artists and the song are good. The video is watchable for the same.
