Just by coincidence I discovered this song in a YT clip and felt it very attractive for its melody and unique for its lyrics. The clip started with a dialog between Dev Anand and Tina Munim giving a clue as to why Tina Munim's character is unsuccessful at selling her goods (probably flowers) to customers because of her attitude. It appears that this character has good singing voice too. Upon search I found a track, an encouraging sign that I can get to sing it with music. Very light and fun song I enjoyed singing. Some friends here do not understand Urdu/Hindi well and I believe this song was not very popular either so I would write the meaning as close as I understood and grasped from the situation in the clip.

If you want to win the hearts of people
Just talk sweet

Like a saw cutting glass
Is how your tone falls on the ears
If you want to say something, dissolve Misri or Mishri (rock sugar) in your words
Just talk sweet

When the instrument is hidden inside (your) heart's chest
Then why your songs are in trouble?
If you want to get ahead of every body
Just talk sweet

Among hundreds, one thing is worth mentioning
If the day is Sureela (melodious), the night will be fun too
If you want to sell your goods (apparently it is flowers but I presume its her songs too)
Just talk sweet

The 2nd antara became my favorite for the analogy "heart's chest" it used, as if the heart is a soul that has its own chest, carrying the instrument..her own voice.

Quite poorly placed song in the film I think as Tina Munim's voice has echo depicting some valley in the background whereas she has people around her inside a studio environment. Anyway I sang it with a feel that I am strolling along Tina Munim in the valleys of Kashmir and enjoying teasing her...Hahaha. Hope you enjoy it too.
