Munish (Dharmendra) is returning from abroad after completing his engineering course. His rich friend Jai Kishan (Feroz Khan) has been instrumental in the development of his friend’s career.

The lyrics of the song Zindagi ittefaq hai were penned by Sahir Ludhyanvi and the music was scored by Ravi.
The girl sings, “Life is a chance. Yesterday happened by chance. Today also happened by chance.”
Video – Zindagi ittefaq hai
The video opens with Mumtaz beginning the song and climbing down some steps. She dances around Feroz Khan and Dharmendra and prepares a glass each of whiskey for both of them. Mumtaz slips out of her shoes and continues to dance. She begins to dance on a rotating bar table. Soon, the song ends abruptly and the video also ends there.
Asha Bhonsle sings for Mumtaz. Dharmendra, Feroz Khan and others look on.
This song has not much cultural influence on it. I love this song not only because it has been sung by Asha Bhonsle but also has a lot of philosophical overtones. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
