Helen on Blu-ray

My most ambitious project yet: Helen on Blu-ray.

42 videos in glorious 16X9 Widescreen High Defintion. This collection was compiled from the very best sources available. Many thanks to those who contributed some high quality videos that I used for this Blu-ray. As usual, most videos were remastered and improved to the best of my ability with various Avisynth and Virtualdub filters.

Friends and family of Mister Naidu say it just might be the best thing he's ever done. :$

Long live Helenji :)

Unfortunately, I won't be making this available for download. The size of this Blu-ray is just too large (20gb)...and the audience for this is simply too small. :( Btw, this is the 100th post of this humble little blog which debuted 4 years ago on April 20, 2009. :party They said it wouldn't last. But somehow it has against all odds o_O Will there be a 101st???...stay tuned :)

Video of the week

Absolutely <3 Kabhi Kabhi Saiyyan Sharaab Pikey Aaye from Raakhi And Rifle (1976). Helen dances in perfect synchronization :o with the heavy beat of the tabla in accompaniment with the unique and lovely sound of the harmonium. :tup

I remastered this video that was taken from a low resolution VCD and I think it came out rather well...if I must say so myself

Rare Helen....Remixed

Here is a remixed collection of some rare "first time on Youtube" Helen videos. In addition, one super rare non-Helen video is featured throughout the video :tup. If there's enough interest, most of these videos will appear in their original form on future DVD compilations that I may make. Enjoy :)

Helen - Woman of a Thousand Faces

Silent film star Lon Chaney was known as the Man of a Thousand Faces due to his ability to transform himself into the many different characters in his films. But I think that since Helen had so many different looks throughout her long and storied career, that she should be thought of as the female counterpart to Mr. Chaney. So, I've created a short slideshow to prove my point. Enjoy :)

Ankh Ladti Hai Lad Jane De - Parmatma (1978)

Fantabulous dance and song from Parmatma (1978). Helen gyrates her hips mightily while showing off her curvaceous Latin figure. Latin? Yes, she's 75% Latin & 25% Burmese :tup. For this song, she's in full-blown hippie mode. She wears tight hip-hugging bell bottom pants along with a sexy knot blouse, and tops off her attire with a headband around her long brown hair. Groovy! \m/ Also, the video of the song is simply fantastic 8).

Ankh Ladti Hai Lad Jane De is a really great western-sounding song that could have fit nicely in any Santana album from that era. Electric guitar and Moog Synthesizer are featured prominently throughout the track and in most of the songs in the movie. K Babauji wrote the soundtrack, and many of the songs have a strong RD Burman vibe, Parmatma Title Music and Suraangini Kamaal Karegi in particular. Imo, Parmatma may be the best RD Burmanesque soundtrack written by someone else. One can only hope that someday someone rips it from a vinyl LP and gives it the spotlight it so richly deserves.

Btw, Ankh Ladti Hai Lad Jane De has been added to the Radio Helen playlist. Enjoy!
