Something providential in the coincident that today is the birth anniversary of two wonderful dancers and performers of the Hindi silver screen. Yes, today, 21st October is the day that both Shammi Kapoor and Helen share as their date of birth. And not that it is a strange or unique occurrence. Many people share their dates of birth with many other known, even renowned people. But I single out this occurrence as special – these two wonderful people have been contemporaries in the film industry, they have performed together in many movies, and the most important, both of them represent that combination of energy and fun and delight and enjoyment that is unique to their theatrical personae.

Rail songs are those songs in which Hindi movie actors are singing the song aboard a train. I am aware of around 40-50 Rail songs from Hindi movies. Most of them have been discussed in this blog. I continue to discover “new” rail songs quite frequently and a few of them are so good that I have earmarked them to be discussed on special occasions for this blog.

I have not counted the number of songs sung by Rafi for Shammi Kapoor, but it is high time I did that. There are so many of them, and it is amazing how Rafi could summon so much energy and enthusiasm every single time he had to sing a song for Shammi Kapoor. Just about everyone of these songs are gems, that have stood the test of time.

I have not kept a count of it, but I think I have posted songs from most Shammi Kapoor movies in this blog. Considering that Shammi Kapoor came into his own in 1957 with “Tumsa Nahin Dekhaa” (1957) and continued till late 1960s with the kind of movies with he is identified, he may have worked in about 20 odd typically Shammi Kapoor movies. I have posted songs from almost all these movies, in addition to posting songs from other Shammi Kapoor movies where he played other kinds of roles.

I have posted several songs from “An Evening in Paris” (1967). Here is a lesser known song from this movie, at least as far as I am concerned. I was not aware of this song till a few hours ago, and I became aware of this song only when I was looking at the list of old farmaishes given by my readers.

Rafi-Shammi Kapoor songs are some of the most loved songs in Bollywood movies. Sometime ago, I had wondered what I was going to do if I run out of these Rafi-Shammi Kapoor songs to post. Well, I have posted over 2500 songs in this blog, and I find that I still have many Rafi-Shammi Kapoor songs not yet posted. So I still have lots of ground to cover.
