Mere Mehboob is a 1963 Indian film directed by Harnam Singh Rawail and starring Rajendra Kumar, Sadhana, Ashok Kumar, Nimmi, Pran,Johnny Walker and Ameeta. The film became a "blockbuster" and took the number one position at the box office in 1963. The movie drew a background from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh and traditional Lucknow. The famous song "Mere Mehboob Tujhe Mere" was shot in the University Hall and in a couple of places one gets to see the university. The opening scene of the movie shows the famous residential hall and the associated clock tower 'Victoria Gate'.
I love this song, and I love the location, for I studied for sometime at Aligarh Muslim University. Both the actors had acted so well in this movie, They were the best romantic pair at that time. Though the movie was released in 1963, I got to see it only somewhere around 1977/ 78 in Calcutta. The song literally drips with love. And Sadhana, the heroine looked so beautiful, her eyes so expressive.
After its success many movies were made with similar background, but nothing could stand up to this movie.
After bumping into a college girl one day, a young man suddenly finds himself falling hopelessly in love with her. The only problem is that, clad as she is in a traditional burkha, he as only seen her hands. The remaining part explains how he finds her. Over-discreet questioning and misunderstandings lead to a series of mistaken identities and misdirected romances.
The soundtrack for the movie was composed by Naushad and lyrics penned by Shakeel Badayuni. The soundtrack consists of 9 songs, featuring vocals by Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar andAsha Bhonsle. The song Mere Mehboob Tujhe became very much popular upon release. The song was composed on raga Jhinjhoti.
