Video- Main toh pyarse tere Piya:
The cinematography is by Marcus Bartley.
The video begins as Vaijayantimala, smilingly, tries to get out of Rajendra Kumar’s grip. She runs to the drapes and shyly hides behind them. The music has already begun. She goes into his arms, overcoming her blushing and begins to sing.
Then, she hands him a towel and pushes him gently into the washroom. She comes to the hall and picks up Rajendra Kumar’s photo, moving about the place, singing. By then, Rajendra Kumar comes out of the bedroom dressed up. The song peters out and the video also ends there.
Lata Mangeshkar had sung this song for Vaijayantimala. Rajendra Kumar looks on.
This is a typical filmi song, depicting the heroine’s devotion toward the hero, who is her husband. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
