    Lata Mangeshkar was still finding a niche for herself in the Hindi film industry and according to Ganesh Anantharaman, it was a brave move by composer Anil Biswas to use Lata's "tinny vocals" in songs like "Jeevan Sapna Toot Gaya" and "Mere Liye Woh Gam-E-Intazar Chhod Gaye" sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Meena Kapoor. Other popular song were "Yaad Rakhna Chaand Taaro" sung by Lata and Mukesh, "Ik Dil Kaa Lagana Baqi Tha" sung by Lata. The lyricists were Zia Sarhadi, Gopal Singh Nepali, Behzad Lakhnavi and Shams Azimabadi.
