Movie – Aap Aaye Bahar Aayi (1971)
The song, Mujhe teri mohobbat ka sahara, 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 a song.
Post another encounter between them at her home, they fall in love with each other, not before Neena plays a prank on Rohit. Unaware of these goings-on, Rohit’s wayward friend Kumar (Prem Chopra) sends a marriage proposal to Neena. Neena rejects the proposal by tearing his photograph, without even a look at it. Kumar swears revenge. On the engagement day, Kumar is shocked to know that it was Neena, who rejected him and now she is getting married to Rohit.
Rohit invites Kumar for a night out in the forest’s dak bungalow with Whiskey and Neena. That night during the stay, Kumar rapes Neena in the absence of Rohit at the bungalow. Neena reveals to Rohit about it and he chases Kumar. Post the ensuing fight between the friends, Rohit blinds Kumar in one eye and Kumar swears revenge. After this incident, Neena shuns Rohit and they sing this song from different places at this point in the movie.
Song – Mujhe teri mohobbat ka sahara
The song, Mujhe teri mohobbat ka sahara, was penned by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Lakshmi-Pyare.
The song goes, “I would have had the support or your love. If the storm hadn’t struck, we would have reached our destination.”
Video – Mujhe teri mohobbat ka sahara
The cinematographer is G Singh.
The video opens with Rajendra Kumar sitting in a barren and lonely place and the song begins in the background with a male voice. Sadhana is wearing a white sari and begins to sing the song. Rajendra Kumar joins in the song.
Both of them are seen walking in different mountainous areas. Tears run down the cheeks of Sadhana. Soon, the song peters out and the video also ends as they walk away from their places of sojourns.
Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar sing for Rajendra Kumar and Sadhana.
There does not seem to be any influence of any culture on this song. But, this is a sad song sung by the hero and the heroine. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
