Ehsaan tere hoga - Oldies goldies

The very mention of Shammi Kapoor brings to my mind a personality with unrestrained energy and unpredictable dance moves. Very difficult to associate soberness and restrained emotions with him. More so when the movie is named 'Junglee' (1961) where he lets loose his high energy dance moves in the the iconic "yahoooooo" song. 

The beautiful 'Ehsaan tera hoga' song in this movie, shows with Shammi at his restrained best. For me, the songs themselves in this movie are enough to depict his transformation from a junglee to a human! 

Such versatility!

Which song of Shammi's do you like best?


  1. The love songs of that time were like that. So restrained and well behaved. It was only in the 80s that lovers began to dance exuberantly instead of sitting and talking together to express love.
    I don't know if i have a favourite Shammi song. But I do like Yahooooooo.

  2. Restrained for sure... because the first image that come to me of Shammi Kapoor is of Koi much junglee kale :)

  3. I am not a great fan of Shammi, but Rishi Kapoor is a very good actor. Not followed Shammi much :)
