Jaaiye Aap Kahaan

1 of 9 songs from the film “Mere Sanam” which is believed to be an unofficial remake of “Come September” (especially the first part of the film where the caretaker converts the bungalow to a resort). Storyline is similar in many ways to “Thumsa nahin dekha”.  The story revolves around romantic rendezvous between college girl Neena (Asha Parekh) and Kumar (Biswajeet) another guest in the same lodge where Neena went on a holiday with her mother and a few other female friends.
You may listen to the song here
A mediocre film with a run of the mill story yet makes audience glued to their seats thanks to “Rok lengi koyi daali meri baahon ki tarah”
mesmerizing music by a colossus called O P Nayyar and brilliant photography by K. Vaikunth that portrays Kashmir in all its glory. Jaaiye Aap Kahan is one of those classic songs regarded as a milestone in Hindi film music. A typical trotting around the tree song (and not running around the tree, atleast in this case) picturized on Asha Parekh and Biswajeet with the tree triumphantly playing the supporting role of wingman. Even the twig tweaks out radiating towards the centre of circlish sky background lending itself for Asha P to hold on to…Observe this while Asha B sings
It’s grass n greens all through the song, of those trees, lawns n more of them, the sky and the earth, clouds and hills coming in between bringing viewers to perspective, pushing them towards a picturesque panorama . While the song starts with the humming of “aha” by Biswajeet (as if he is set to sing the rest of the song!) it is Asha (Parekh)  all the way playbacked brilliantly by Asha (Bhosle) ending with the dazzling pair getting lost in the woods, hand in hand, hmmming….even as the devious manager Shyam (played by Pran) who is plotting to create a wedge between the two, manages to catch sight of the duo’s dalliance!
