Dhhokha khaayegi na yaaron ki nazar

The energy and the vitality that Shammi Kapoor brought on to the screen was unprecedented and unparalleled. Starting off with Jeewan Jyoti in 1953, there was a fair number of films, almost 20 or so, that he did between 1953 and 1957. In many of the films in this period, he was trying to emulate his elder brother, Raj Kapoor. He did attract some attention with films like Rail Ka Dibba, Laila Majnu, Gul Sanobar etc., but somehow the histrionics and the on screen presence in those roles did not come across as a comfortable performer. In hind sight, one can say, that there was a different personality hidden inside that was impatient to explode, but was not finding the right expression.

Then in 1957 came Tumsa Nahin Dekha. And the rules of the game changed forever, and the rest is history. A new phenomenon descended on the industry, and the entire perspective of the hero in films was transformed into a completely new dimension. From then on, one could depend on one constant in all his movies – there will be a lot of energy, a lot of vigor, a lot of assertive expression, no matter what the storyline or what the characterization was. Whether it was Professor, or Rajkumar, Ujaala or Bluff Master, or Brahmchari; the roles at times were not the normal rich man’s college going son on a holiday in the mountains. Whatever may be the role, one can count on the punch and excitement to be there. The lines from the song in this post so aptly describe his personality.

deewaane, mastaane

hum jidhar jaayen, hulchul machaayen

chhaa jaayen mehfilon par

har armaan, ik toofaan

sacchaa hai pyaar, pehli hai baar

jaadoo karen dilon par

Yes, it was a magic that he weaved on the young hearts. Every emotion was a storm, and nothing less. His vibrant presence in the frame was always the focus of energy and attraction. His personality, his expressions gave a totally new meaning to be young and in love. I have been smitten by this personality since I was a child, and just his presence, his songs, his on screen antics have kept a little adolescent alive inside me. The music from his films has been such a pick-upper in all situations, and the spirit of living the life to its fullest is an infection that spread a vitality. That he was there, was enough to sustain the excitement and vigor in my own life. The lines from the song from Jaanwar, come to mind,

tum ho salaamat, hum ko nahin gam
tum se hamaari, duniya jawaan hai

The mind is young, and the life has excitement, because of him. He may not be with us in this physical world, but the legacy, and the infection, of his music, his films and his characters will always remain.

Singapore, 1960 film from Eagle Films, the production house of FC Mehra, is directed by Shakti Samant. The star line up for the film includes Shammi Kapoor, Padmini, Shahsikala, KN Singh, Madan Puri, Helen, Agha, Bhagwan, Dwarka Divecha, Maria Menado, Gautam Mukherjee etc. The music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan and the lyrics are shared between Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri. This song is penned by Shailendra. The singing voice, as ever for him, is Mohammed Rafi.

A classic specimen of Shammi Kapoor performance of a song. Shammi Kapoor disguised as a pathaan, and performing in a restaurant. One can also see Madan Puri, with a henchman, looking as if he is searching for something or someone. Well the someone is Shammi Kapoor himself, and disguised as he is, singing right in front of them. In the later part of the song, it seems as if Madan Puri is catching on, and he is following the prancing singer around the restaurant as he completes his performance.

Enjoy this very Shammi Kapoor-esque presentation of a wonderful song, by the one and only Shammi Kapoor.

Sudhir ji,
Out of the 20 odd movies from Jeevan jyoti to Tumsa Nahin Dekha,Shammi Kapoor was uncomfortable,tentative and not so confident in most films except HUM SAB CHOR HAI (1956).
This is one of my favourite films ,in general and in perticular a SK film.This,I believe was due to the melodious music,a fast paced storyline and a very endearing and impressive Shammi Kapoor.Despite working with a legend like Nalini Jayawant,he looked confident,his sense of comic timing was noteworthy and HE ACTED in that film.
I call this film as the precursor to his changeover/makeover in Tumsa Nahin Dekha.But for the removal of Talwar cut Moonch,he was almost the same in HSCH as he was in TND.
Those who saw HSCH and remember it will agree with me.In fact,in one of the interviews to the noted journalist of Statdust, Devayani Chaubal aka Devi,Shammi Kapoor had confided ” Nalini ji always told me,I had the capacity to shake the industry and gave me such confidence that what I could achieve after TND had its root in my film with Nalini ji HSCH ”

Arun ji,

Yes, I missed mentioning Hum Sab Chor Hain in the write up. You are right to point out that here was one movie that had the pace and the plot similar to the ones that will make Shammi Kapoor famous in the post 1957 phase of his career.

This movie is just one year before Tumsa Nahin Dekha, and it seems that he still did not have enough liberties in the music and singing department. Of the 9 songs in this movie, he got to do one solo,’Tere Aage Bolna Dushwaar Ho Gayaa’, and in this performance he was still trying to be his elder brother Raj Kapoor. From the remaining, the only other singing opportunity he gets is a duet with Nalini Jaywant, ‘O Mr. Banjo’. And in this duet song, one can clearly see the Shammi Kapoor of Tumsa Nahin Dekha. The bird was finding its wings. 🙂
