One of my cousin brothers looks the way Dharmendra appeared in this movie.
Movie: This song appeared in the 1966 classic Baharen Phir Bhi Aayengi (Spring Will Come Then Too) directed by Shaheed Latif and produced by late Guru Dutt. It starred Mala Sinha, Dharmendra, Tanuja, late Deven Verma and late Rehman.
Jitendra (Dharmendra) is a reporter for Jagriti newspaper and exposes the hazardous working conditions in a mine owned by one of the crooked creditors of his newspaper. He loses his job after an argument with the owner Amita (Mala Sinha). He insists that she work for the welfare of the mine workers. But, she is not interested. When he and his friend Chunnilal (Johnny Walker) travel in a train back to his home in a village when Chunnilal ridicules him about his losing the job. Jitendra, then, sings this song.
Song: The music of this song was composed by O P Nayyar and the lyrics were penned by Kaifi Azmi.
The gist of the song is, “Even if the gardener changes, the life of the garden does not end. Spring will definitely return.”
Video: Cinematography is by K G Prabhakar.
The video opens with a train moving on its tracks. Dharmendra catches hold of Johnny Walker’s coat to make him get up. Dharmendra also begins the song. He moves toward and stands on the stairs leading to the bogie, in which he is traveling. Johnny Walker is sleeping, as people get down from the train at the next station.
Some people also get in. Dharmendra helps a man, holding a heavy sack and continues to sing. He also helps a little boy selling chocolates. He sits on one of the stairs leading to the bogie. The song peters out and the video ends there.
Artists: The playback singer is Mahendra Kapoor and onscreen the song is performed by Dharmendra and Johnny Walker.
Cultural Influence: The typically filmi song is very melodious and soothing. It motivates us. Otherwise, there is no special cultural influence for the song. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
