My thoughts on some of my favorites...

I really like Shankar Jaikishan's lovely theme for Bombay Talkie. Its so contemporary it feels like it could have been written yesterday and it has such a soothing, lilting groove that it just grows on you with every listen. Kalyanji's Anadji's music for Zanjeer, on the other hand, has a classic seventies feel to it. I love the melody and the arrangement that accompanies the atmospheric video. R.D. Burman's haunting title music for Caravan has been a favorite of mine for years. It features a great wordless vocal by Usha Iyer as Asha Parekh helplessly drives a runaway car down a mountain. Yikes!

Helen of Bollywood - Volume Four

Its been almost a year since the last volume was released. Since then, I've uploaded 3 other compilation DVDs:

My Name is Suzy - 23 videos influenced by western music and culture including 7 with Helen.

Helen Dhamaka - 40 rare Helen videos that have never been released on DVD.

Helen: Always In Step - various videos about Helen.

After getting over 500 downloads of the first 3 volumes, I've decided to continue with Helen of Bollywood (Volume 4). As usual, all videos were remastered to the best of my ability for optimal viewing pleasure. So, I hope you enjoy them! Once again, special thanks to PC! And also to Tom Daniel for technical advice.

Among the highlights in this volume: the evergreen song "Ooi Ma Ooi Ma Yeh Kya Ho Gaya" from the classic fantasy film "Parasmani" and "Suku Suku" from the 1961 superhit "Junglee." Personal favorite: "Hello Hello" from "Ek Shriman Ek Shrimati" in which Helen dances up a storm and entertains us as only she can. :)
