Even from these very limited number of songs, the actual number of songs that we would get to listen to has further reduced, because the digital versions of these songs do not seem to be available on net.

Neena was the lead actress against Prithvi Raj Kapoor in this film – a name that I hear from the first time, because of my very limited knowledge of the films and songs of this era of the Hindi film songs.

Kya Jaane Man Kya Kaheta Hai – Prithviraj-Samyukta – S K Pal – Josh Malihabadi
