Video – Tumhare pyar mein hum beqarar hoke chale
The cinematography is by V K Murthy.
The video opens with the music beginning and Asha Parekh hurrying to her jeep, to start it. Dharmendra comes along on her way and begins to sing this song. The jeep is moving and he moves along backward and then sits on the front portion of the jeep.
Dharmendra gets down from the front portion of the jeep and Asha Parekh takes off in the jeep. But, he is determined and keeps pursuing her. Again he comes in front of the jeep and climbs onto the front portion.
Dharmendra climbs into the moving jeep near where she is sitting and he continues to sing. Then, he gets down from the jeep and climbs into the back portion of the vehicle as it keeps moving. He climbs into the front passenger seat.
Asha Parekh stops the car and runs into the wilderness and is followed by Dharmendra. As they move about the forest, they bump into a villager carrying some haystack and all of them fall down. The song ends abruptly there and the video also ends.
Mohammad Rafi sang this song for Dharmendra and Asha Parekh plays along.
This beautiful song does not have a cultural influence on it. The song is fantastic. The video is watchable for Asha Parekh’s graceful movements.
