Jai Shankar (Dharmendra) is a foreign-educated man but bound to Indian culture. One day, he is supposed to attend an event and the organizers mistake him for a Singer-Performer Jaidev. It all begins with Sadhuram Sood (Rajinder Nath) assuming that he is Jaidev. Once the real Jaidev appears, one of the organizers, Aarti (Asha Parekh) takes Jai to task and insists that he sings in front of the large audience. Initially, he is hesitant. After a shower of slippers and shoes, he performs a song, which gets a “once more” request from the audience.
Jai Shankar and Aarti meet again and he insists that they begin dating. On their first date, he disguises as a Pathan and meets her, asking her to love him instead of his boss. She effectively sees through his disguise and gets annoyed at his behavior. He tries to placate her by singing this song.

The cinematography is by V Babasaheb. Dance choreography is by Suresh Bhatt.
The video opens with Asha Parekh running away from Dharmendra. He begins to sing this song. She turns back to look at him and then replies to his request. Asha Parekh is not really offended. Soon, she promises to return on another date.
Asha Parekh is late on their second date and Dharmendra gets offended. She just shrugs her shoulders and is about to leave. He catches hold of her wrist and stops her. After some sweet nothings, they leave the place. The song peters out and the video also ends there.
Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar sing for Dharmendra and Asha Parekh.
There is no influence of any culture on this song. The song is good and so are the artists. The video is watchable for the same.
