What a lovely song I discovered recently and upon watching its clip in Black & White on YT I thought it must be a 50's song but it turned out that it was from the late 60's. By then most Hindi films were prepared in color already. Also trying to search a cover photo I could not find any poster for this film. I had to make one by freezing a frame of the clip:). This is the first time I couldn't find a poster. May be the film was not so popular or it could have been a flop film but the song is really grand which I could only sing in a one lower scale.

Its a romantic song and all antaras are as usual praising the beauty of the haseena. I thought to just share the translation of its mukhda which will explain what all must be in the antaras too. One interesting thing I noticed is the Tak Tak Tak Tak taal that I had often heard in many SI songs, is present inside the interludes here. Some of you might be familiar with this song but I was not. Hope you all enjoy this cover which is my as recent work as yesterday.

Mukhda Translation:
I am not a Poet
but I posses an eye of a Poet
I will say the one thing
What I have observed (the beauty) in You
