I just learned that Shakti Samanta died on Thursday. So sad to hear the news…but it is a good excuse to repost some scenes from his wonderful movies.
(Lata Mangeshkar on Padmini in Singapore, music by Shankar Jaikishan)
(Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt on Madhubala and Minoo Mumtaz in Insaan Jaag Utha, music by S.D. Burman)
(Geeta Dutt on Helen in Howrah Bridge, music by O.P. Nayyar)
(Unlike the with the first three films here, I haven’t seen An Evening In Paris, but I thought it would be fun to throw this scene into the bunch. That’s Sharda on Sharmila Tagore, music by Shankar Jaikishan.)
