Where did you watch this movie?

Shammi Kapoor’s best-known film featuring him in his Yahoo persona in songs like Chahe koi mujhe junglee kahe and Aai aai ya suku suku. The rich bachelor Shekhar (S. Kapoor) returns from abroad and refuses to laugh until he meets Kashmiri belle Rajkumari (Banu) who eventually changes his view of the world. The film can be seen as heralding the colour films that came to be the mainstay of the popular cinema (cf. Manmohan Desai’s work) after the 50s Filmistan genre products. Previously, colour had been reserved for big spectacles only. After Junglee, intimate family romances also had to be in colour. The movie is still regarded as a cult item because of Shammi Kapoor’s youthful and rebellious performance.
