Song Information: This melody has a profound sense of pathos infused in it. The song has some crests and troughs in the interlude, as the rhythm drops the tempo and again picks it up in the verses. This makes the song intensely endearing to the audience. Laxmikant-Pyarelal is the only duo who could have done such a commendable job. The lyrics are very conversational and heart touching. The song very effectively captures that ‘Abhimaan’ of the jilted lover and every rejected and heartbroken lovelorn lover can relate to this track. The song has a very doleful and morose feel and that makes it very harmonising to the pensive and crestfallen mood. That is why one keeps on coming back to this number. Kishore Kumar needs no praise as he is someone who will always remain unparalled. His extremely dulcet and powerful vocals are as usual enchanting and that is what makes this song unforgettable.

More About the Song: Mere Mehboob is an evergreen rendition that will never age. It will forever enthral us and all the upcoming future generations. This song is one of the best songs sung by Kishore Da. This number has been filmed on him and the beautiful actress Kumkum and the video though a black and white one speaks of a very colourful and emotional story. Since the video has been picturised on Kishor Da only he could feel the pain and the emotions of the character he was portraying and that is why the song has that wistful emotion that the character faces and nobody could have sung it better than him. This song has a lot of covers and reprised versions made years later, and two of them have been made by Sanam Puri and Honey Singh. This song is just ideal for someone who is facing the agonies of a separation or who has been badly betrayed and ditched by the beloved without any apparent reason. So if you are one of those suffering from any such similar situations, let your grief take the form of music and let those guitar chords that you strum speak for your woes and miseries to the world outside.
