Some of Salil's best compositions are in this film. Besides, 4 songs by Rafi includes the well-known 'Zindagi hai kyaa, sun meri jaa.n' which is based on the theme of Limelight ( the famous Charlie Chaplin film). Although it's widely known that Rafi had a tough time trying to sing the antara of 'Tasveer teri dil mei.n', I think he did a marvellous job and  sang 4 very different and unforgettable songs.
HMV had released an LP a few years back and has now released a CD but the CD contains only 7 songs. Song MA4 and MA9 are not in the CD. Incidently, song MA6 is not complete in the film. Part of the song is in the film with dialogues and other rude noises such as doors being slammed between.The complete song is available only on the record..
