This video slideshow shines a light on some Helen films that haven't been seen since they were originally released many years ago. They are presumed to be lost forever.The complete total of lost Helen films most likely numbers over 100. In addition, many Helen films that have been released are censored versions that edited out her dances. Such films include Rail Ka Dibba, Khazanchi, Return of Superman, Barkha Bahaar and many others.

Madhumati as Helen in Suno Zindagi Gaati Hai

Helen had many copycats throughout her long and storied career in Bollywood. But none was more blatant than Madhumati. Here she performs in Suno Zindagi Gaati Hai from Pagla Kahin Ka (1970); during which she hopelessly mimics Helen while Helen bemusedly watches from the audience.

Often imitated, never duplicated. There is only one Helen. Don’t be fooled by impostors.

Chutney Music

According to Wikepedia, Chutney music is a form indigenous to the southern Caribbean, popular in Guyana, Trinidad and Suriname. It derives elements from traditional Indian music and popular Trinidadian Soca music. This contemporary fusion of genres was created by Indo-Caribbean people whose ancestors were from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Bengal and the South Indian area around Madras. Enjoy Guyana's Terry Gajraj and Trinidad's Rikki Jai as each performs one of their biggest hits. This is followed by a video from a fine local band from Suriname.
