Reverberating through the caverns of mind, comes this deep and soothing baritone voice of CH Atma. This song is another priceless and incomparable gem that he has renderded as a non-film offering.

This is the typical Shammi Kapoor fun and exuberance solo. In many of his successful movies, one will find a solo song, sung by Rafi, almost within the first 10 or 15 minutes of the movie, “Jawaanian Ye Mast Mast Bin Piye” from Tumsa Nahin Dekha, “Kisi Na Kisi Se Kabhi Na Kabhi” from Kashmir Ki Kali, “Dil Deke Dekho, Dil Deke Dekho” from Dil Deke Dekho, “Laal Chhadi Maidaan Khadi” from Jaanwar, “Aji Aisa Mauka Phir Kahaan Milega” from An Evening In Paris, and so on. It used to be like making a dynamic musical entry. 🙂 Such songs used to be the staple diet of pre teen boys like me. I would listen to a Shammi Kapoor song like this only once, and it would be committed to memory. And I used to be very much in demand at the family gatherings and birthday parties, to perform these songs. (Wow, I used to do that? What fun!!)

Multi starrer movies became a norm in Hindi movies in a big way in 1975 when “Sholay” (1975) came up. In the wake of its mega success, many multi starrer movies followed.

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.

There are few actors in Hindi cinema of yesteryear who evoke as much passion in film-lovers as Shammi Kapoor. He came into cinema at a time when pathos ruled and emotional tragedies, a la Devdas, were the order of the day. Although he made an effort to fit in, he was thankfully (for all of us) a miserable failure in his efforts.

Rafi-Shammi songs typically were cheerful songs sung with such high energy that the listeners would have no option but to get infected with the exuberance contained in the song. Such songs are sure to cheer people up. Every time one is feeling low, one can try listening to these songs. One can get invigorated in no time.

Here is yet another Rafi-Shammi Kapoor song which is sung and picturised with the same passion which we have come to associate with such songs. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist and Shankar Jaikishan are the music director, as was the case in majority of such songs.

These days, movie makers spend huge amounts trying to promote their movies, and still there is no guarantee that their promotions have any effect at the box office. All the songs and dances shown in these promos are often ineffective.
