Rarely, you get to see commercially successful yet very profound movies. ‘Guide’ is one such movie. It was a distinct movie by Dev Anand. Though he has made unique type of moives, but Guide is class apart. The end of the movie is a duel between the Bad Guy (within Dev Anand) and the Good Guy (within Dev Anand), this part discusses Bhagvat Geeta at extent and whole of Indian spirituality.
If I write more it would be less, instead watch the video. Apologies I do not have English translation or script of the same. I will try and post that here some time.

I was in Ahmedabad when this film was screened at a theater called Relief Theater. I saw it seven times due to factors other than the film’s inherent merits but the movie indeed was a class apart. I saw it again on DVD some months ago without losing my enthusiasm for it. My all time favourite song by Waheeda Rahman in it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snzXElOPoow. What lyrics!

All songs of the movie are good. Specially those directed by SD Burman. Those songs move with the story. In the song you posted, Waheeda Rahman throws that “Matka” that was very meaningful.
I said earlier also to you, the only song directed by RD Burman – Gata rahe mera dil, is very loud and while you are watching the movie it seems like out of sync from rest of the movie. Though I am an RD fan over consistent slow songs of SD.
