Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Yamma yamma yamma tu parwaana main shamma

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.

On screen, in specific situations in the films, both funsters have the capacity to electrify the entire scenario and whip up a frenzy of foot tapping, fast moving, heart pumping song and dance sequences that leaves the audience breathless and waiting for more. Yes, a typical song would end within 3 or 4 minutes, but the songs performed by these two, especially dance numbers, are whiz out of this world. And then, to top it, you put both of them together in a dance number on screen – that there be sizzling fireworks is a phenomena taken for granted.

Maybe the pinnacle of their combination is the quintessential dance number O Haseenaa Zulfon Waali from the film Teesri Manzil (1966). The music, the poetry, the dance steps, the energy, and the pace, combined with the two extremely energetic personalities, have made that song an icon for all times and all ages. But then this song is not the only sample of their combined performance. Although not too many, but there sure are a handful of songs that they have performed together.

This song from the film ‘Chinatown’ (1962) is another absolutely sizzling number by this pair. Chinatown is a well known production from the banner of the famous producer/director Shakti Samant. A film that was a great hit in its own time, still continues to draw a lot of interest and popularity, primarily based on its music. This film has seven songs and practically all of them have become emblematic, and still retain their popularity after five decades. This particular song is a veritable gem, that I am sure will pluck the strings, and the memories, of many a heart. A detailed review of this film is available online on Dusted-Off blog at Chinatown.

The music of this film is by Ravi, and the lyrics are created by Majrooh Saab. The singing voices are those of Rafi Saab and Asha ji. This song is being performed in a restaurant owned by the gangster boss, Madan Puri. In this film, Shammi Kapoor plays a double role – that of a good hearted young singer and performer, and the other of a criminal and gangster. Helen is the lady love of the latter role, and is also part of the gang. As the story progresses, the gangster Shammi Kapoor goes missing for some time. Madan Puri and his team run into the good Shammi Kapoor, and in a case of mistaken identity, tie him up and bring him to their headquarters, which is also this restaurant. So this Shammi Kapoor is talking all nonsense, from the perspective of Madan Puri and his team, and is not recognizing them. To keep him quiet, the gangsters drug him, and as the video clip starts, one can see that he is high with intoxication. The song starts in the restaurant, and after a couple of antaraas, the drunk Shammi Kapoor joins in the merriment. We see Madan Puri present in the restaurant, and he is of course annoyed and concerned that Shammi has joined this scene in an inebriated state. Helen is happy – she thinks her lover has come to his senses and back to her arms. And thence the second part of the song follows, shared by Shammi and Helen.

If folks can catch it, there is another recognizable figure in the scene. A gentleman in white coat, who appears for two brief moments in the song, both times, facing Helen, and so the camera is on his left and behind, and one can just make out a profile. In the second appearance he places a Turkish fez cap on Helen’s head. This gentleman is the supporting actor Kehsav Rana, and is part of Madan Puri’s gang.

This is such an endearing and hummable song. In the midst of it, it includes some strains of a variation of the Arabic song ‘Ya Mustafa Ya Mustafaa’, sung as ‘Ya Dilrubaa Ya Dilrubaa’ by Shammi Kapoor.

But enough said, it is the song that you should get to and in a hurry. And enjoy the foot tapping. . . . 😀
