Movie – Aap Aaye Bahar Aayi (1971)
The song, Pooche jo koi mujhse, was featured in the Emkay Productions’ socio-family-drama Aap Aaye Bahar Aayi (1971) produced and directed by Mohan Kumar. The movie starred Rajendra Kumar, Sadhana, Prem Chopra, Rajinder Nath, etc.
Rohit (Rajendra Kumar) and Whiskey (Rajinder Nath) are traveling to Rohit’s estate when their vehicle sputters and stops. Neena (Sadhana) comes along and the men ask her for help, which she declines. After a few days, Neena is in need of similar help and Rohit comes along that way. When Neena requests him to help her, he sings this song. Rohit has obviously fallen in love with her!
Song – Pooche jo koi mujhse
The song, Pooche jo koi mujhse, was penned by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Lakshmi-Pyare.
The man says, “If someone asks me, how does spring look. I will mention your name and say that it looks like you.”
Video – Pooche jo koi mujhse
The cinematographer is G Singh.
The video opens with Rajendra Kumar chasing Sadhana around a tree. He has begun singing this song. The leading man goes to Sadhana’s scooter and follows her on the road. Then, he pulls out the ignition keys and keeps it just out of reach of her.
They have come to the garden on the side of the road. Rajendra Kumar eventually returns the keys to her and she runs off happily. As she travels in the scooter toward her destination, he follows her in his jeep and drives straight ahead of her scooter to make her stop.
Sadhana pulls the ignition keys from the slot of her scooter and moves away from it. Again, Rajendra Kumar starts teasing her. Soon, she is fed up of all the teasing and goes back to her scooter to leave. The song peters out and the video ends as Rajendra Kumar stays there.
Mohammad Rafi sings for Rajendra Kumar. Sadhana is also seen in the video.
There does not seem to be any influence of any culture on this song. But, this is a romantic song where the hero teases the heroine. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
