I probably heard this song in 1963 or 64 and it catched me instantly. It was played so much on Radio. This was the period when Twist and Cha Cha Cha was so popular. I didn't even know what Tally Ho means. To me it sounded as if the flamboyant singer is requesting people to clap with him while he entertains them. I may have not even watched this film but I was never into watching films anyway. I enjoyed the depiction of the singers own attitude and the message in the lines he was singing. Most of such virtual imagery was more powerful than the actual clip when I now watch on YT. Praising Rafi can never be enough but paying tributes to him will never be enough too. Here is my tribute to him and Ravi Sahab and Majrooh Sultanpuri too. Hope you enjoy.
