Did You Know?

Director Vijay Anand later told his wife Sushma that he liked leading lady Asha Parekh's "naughtiness" so much that he repeated her in two more films. Kahin Aur Chal & Main Tere Liye. He also acted opposite her in the big hit film Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki (1978), directed by Raj Khosla. Asha, in turn, always complimented Vijay, saying that he was the "most fabulous director we ever had"See more »

Gross Entertainment, 20 January 2006
Author: jgaekwad from India

This movie is one of the landmarks in the history Hindi Cinema. For 158 minutes the audience is enthralled by a spellbound plot, music, dance, songs and suspense saga. The performance of Shammi Kapoor, Helen, both Prems, Iftikar and Rashid Khan is classic. Even during the 5 mt brief intermission, the cine-goer prefers to be glued to his seat lest the entry of Premnath, immediately after the intermission be missed.

Comedy is at its zenith. The entry of Kapoor on the New Delhi Rly platform and his extraordinary style of walking is mind boggling.

Even 40 years down history, its music and songs are as hit as they were when the first gramophone records were released in 1965. I remember people queuing before the radios in shops and halt in the streets when the songs were played. Needless to say, not a single Wednesday program of Binaca Geetmala in 1966 thru 1968 was aired without a Shammi number either from Teesri Manzil, An Evening in Paris and Bhramachari.

The music, drama, settings and perspiring expressions of Kapoor during the climax of accidentally locating the intriguing "gem-studded coat-button " is scary, hair raising and traumatic.

A film for all classes and all age.
