Video – Bheega bheega mausam aaya
The cinematography is by Sudarshan Naag. Dance choreography is by P L Raj-M Naidu.
The video opens with Mithun Chakraboty kissing Ranjeeta Kaur’s hand and the appearance of thunder and lightning. It begins to rain very heavily with the wind blowing the plants. The music follows the change in weather with the playing of the santoor.
They get wet and she sings the song. The couple gets married at a temple. They get intimate on the round revolving bed. The song peters out and the video ends as the light is switched off.
Hemlata sang this song for Ranjeeta Kaur and Mithun Chakraborty dances with Ranjeeta.
In India, particularly in Bollywood, monsoons are given a lot of importance as far as romance is concerned. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
