Sargam is a 1979 Hindi-language drama film written and directed by K. Viswanath. It was a remake of his earlier Telugu film 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 Us Par" in Ooty and "Dafliwale" in Kashmir.[1]

The film became a huge success at the box office and took the top spot at the box office in 1979.[2] It made Jayaprada a sensation and a star overnight in Hindi Cinema,[3] and she also earned a Filmfare nomination as Best Actress.



All the songs[4] were composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and lyrics were penned by Anand Bakshi.

The film's chart-buster song, Dafliwale, debuted at the number 1 spot on Binaca Geetmala's annual list 1980 and stayed at the number 1 spot for the next 25 weeks before it was retired from the list. Although the film was released in 1979, the song made it to the 1980 list because it completed the major part of 25 weeks in 1980. It is the only song ever to have debuted at 1 and stayed there for the entirety of its existence in the list.
