Popular Lata song “Ye dil aur unki nigahon ke saaye” has no video footage

You will not find the video footage of the melodious and soulful song “Ye dil aur unki nigahon ke saaye” sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

The song is from 1973 Hindi film ‘Prem Parbat’, which starred Hema and Satish Kaul.

However, the print of the film got destroyed and hence there is no footage of the film and its songs.

The original reel of the movie was damaged in the store room and nobody had any backup/copy of the original. As a result the movie has been lost for ever.

Fortunately, All India Radio (AIR) had copies of the songs of the film, and you can still hear this song on AIR.

The movie was directed by Ved Rahi, and music was composed by Jaidev.

You will find several videos of “Ye dil aur unki nigahon ke saaye” song on YouTube but none of them is the original footage.

People have taken footage of some other song and replaced the music with this one.

Here is one video where song is here played back on scenes from the film Madhumati (1958) which featured Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala. Most of the scenes are from the song ‘Aaja re pardesi’.

Enjoy the soulful music by Jaidev, amazing lyrics by Jaan Nisar Akhtar, and of course the haunting voice of Lata Mangeshkar.
