Video – Kisipe dil agar aajaye toh kya hota hai
The cinematography is by Peter Pareira. Dance choreography is by Kamal-Sohanlal.
The video opens with Rishi Kapoor trying to hug Neetu Singh and Neetu Singh running away from him. The music begins simultaneously.
Neetu Singh is blushing and he doesn’t know what is happening. He begins to sing and she replies. They begin to dance on the houseboat.
Soon, they are seen in a garden, running about the plants and trees. Neetu Singh also runs to him and hugs his back.
He picks her up piggyback and places her back on the lawn, instantly. After they had enough of running around the trees, they hug near a large tree. The song and the video end there abruptly.
Shailendra Singh and Asha Bhonsle have sung playback for Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh.
This song is essentially romantic in nature but without the influence of any culture on it. The song is good. The video is watchable for the hilarity.
