This is a well known song of Mukesh ji. In the movie, this is a boat song and going by the title of the movie, one may guess that the song is picturised on a boat on the river Ganga, but that is not the case. This song is picturised on river Narmada near Jabalpur at the spot called Bhedaghat. Raj Kapoor had his “sasuraal” at Jabalpur and he has shot quite a few songs at this location. The song is an introduction song in the movie where Raj Kapoor, carrying a “dafli” introduces himself by singing this song. Thus this song is categorized as a “dafli” song as well.
I also like to play "dafli", hope you will enjoy this cover of mine.
