Shammi Kapoor - Isharon isharon me..

I have always loved this song Isharon isharon me from Kashmir Ki Kali for its romantic lyrics and lovely music.  When I chanced to see this film years ago on doordarshan, I thought I would die of happiness.  The song shot among the misty outdoors of beautiful Kashmir with a handsome Shammi and lovely Sharmila, exceeded my expectations.  What a handsome couple they make, Shammi and Sharmila.

Shammi Kapoor died this morning, 14th August, 2011 at 5.30 am.  RIP Shammi, you will live forever in our hearts, cavorting in Shimla, Srinagar and Paris.  Handsome and desirable forever.


  1. Shammi Kapoor was different!, not just from the Kapoor clan but also from every comer. His movies were are timeless entertainers.

  2. "Handsome and desirable forever."

    I couldn't have put it better, Ava. So true.

  3. So right Hakoona.

    Dustedoff - Thanks.

  4. He is cavorting with the gods, apsaras and other beings in swarglok now! Happy stay there Shammi!

  5. Yeh Harv - he goes isharon isharon with the angels.

  6. I don't think its possible to shoot pictures now in Kashmir.
    Shammi was an exceptional one in the Kapoor family.
    In his early stages he had a moustache and his pictures never took off.
    Then he did a complete face over and what a start it was for him.
    I don't think I have missed any of his movies.

  7. Thanks Haddock, Welcome to my page
