Costume Drama: Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna

"Guide" (1965) is a hugely successful film. Based on R. K. Narayan's Sahitya Akademi winning novel "The Guide", it featured Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman in lead roles. The novel was published in 1958. Waheeda Rehman plays a married woman who is passionate about dance. She dreams of pursuing dance while Dev Anand as Raju Guide is instrumental in helping her fulfil her dream.

S. D. Burman adorned the film with wonderful compositions. Presenting a superb solo where the vivacious Waheeda is oozing with infectious effervescence and joy. Shot on location at the majestic Chittorgarh Fort in Rajasthan, this song is an audio-visual delight.

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Lyrics: Shailendra
Music: S. D. Burman
