Deewana Hua Badal (Duet)

Song that sings a saga of love, shot in the cool locales of “Paradise on Earth” - Kashmir and wrapped
beautifully by the melodies of M Rafi and Asha Bhosle. This romantic buoyant ballad is picturized on the flamboyant Shammi Kapoor and gorgeous Sharmila Tagore (who made a stunning debut ) sailing us to Dal Lake in Srinagar, taking us to Nehru Park where we watch Shammi waltzing and jiving to woo Sharmila even as they are sailing in separate boats in the lake.
The song begins with Sharmila climbing down the outside entrance stairs of a Village Inn followed by Shammi in his typical somersaultish style. Truly a treat to watch Shammi’s great balancing act during boating! Some cool moments ensue for a few minutes and the song ends with Shammi waving away to Sharmila from his own boat. Bubbly lively feel is a true takeaway from this timeless melody.


Movie Masala:
Since this was Sharmila’s debut film and also being a Bengali, she had no idea what to do with playback songs. It was Shammi Kapoor who told her what to do during a song, teaching her about music and rhythm (as told by Sharmila in “The Telegraph” Aug 15, 2011)
In Rafi’s voice lies the voice of Shammi so much so that on the musical maestro’s demise, Shammi himself said (somewhere I’ve read) “My voice has departed”
This movie – Kashmir ki Kali became a Box Office hit that year. The film incidentally has no title track.
O P Nayyar was selected to compose the music in place of Shanker-Jaikishen.
