Sargam is a 1979 Hindi drama film written and directed by K. Viswanath. It was a remake of his earlier Telugu hit Siri Siri Muvva (1976), which also starred Jayaprada and made her a star in South India. She made her Hindi film debut with this film, repeating her role of a mute dancer.[1]

The film stars Rishi Kapoor as her partner, Shashikala as her stepmother, Keshto Mukherjee, Shreeram Lagoo as her father, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Asrani as her dance teacher, and Vijay Arora. Laxmikant Pyarelal composed the memorable songs, which won the only Filmfare Award for the film. Anand Bakshi wrote the lyrics. Mohd. Rafi sang all seven songs, three of them were duets with Lata Mangeshkar, including the famous song, "Dafliwale", "Koyal Boli Duniya Doli" and "Parbat Ke Us Paar". The song "Koyal boli" was shot on the banks of the Godavari River in Rajahmundry, "Parbat ke uss par" in Ooty and "Dafliwale" in Kashmir.[1]
