Video – Phoolon tumhe pata hai
The cinematography is by Jaywant Pathare.
The video opens with shots of different flowering plants. Someone is watering them. It turns out that the person watering the plants is Deepti Naval. She also begins to sing this song. After watering them, she fingers some of them, affectionately.
Farooq Sheikh appears there. Deepti Naval walks to a swing and sits on it. He walks toward her and stops some distance away. As the song ends, she turns to look in the direction where he is standing. The video also ends there.
This song was sung Asha Bhonsle for Deepti Naval. Farooq Sheikh looks on amusedly.
There is no influence of any culture on this song. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
