I tend to liken the journey of this blog to a train.

So that way, I find the comparison of this blog with a road journey somewhat more appropriate where one need not stop anywhere, and one can see milestones going past at high speed.

Prima Facie, it would appear that most Shammi Kapoor style movies starring Shammi Kapoor had music by Shankar Jaikishan. But that is not really the case. There have been several music directors compositing music for Shammi Kapoor’s movies beginning from “Tumsa Nahin Dekha” (1957) when Shammi Kapoor finally came into his own.

If a Hindi movie is named “Sadhana”, “Raagini”, “Kalpana” etc then one can be rest assured that the movie will not have the actress of that name in these movies. But it is different with a movie title like “Johny Walker” (1957). This movie, which was a Natraj production movie directed by Ved Mohan, had Johny Walker in the title role. The movie also had Shyama, Tony Walker, Raj Mehra, Amar, Sulochana etc in it.
