It’s been a Jewel Thief week. 3 videos featuring 3 of the women stars have been featured earlier this week.
- First it was “Rula Ke gaya Sapna Mera,” featuring Vyjayanthimala
- Next was “Raat Akeli Hai,” picturised on Tanuja
- Then it was Helen, in “Baithe Hain Kya Usike Paas”
I asked which of the women was the best match the jewel thief, Dev Anand: super spunky Anju (Tanuja), sensitive Shalu (Vyjayanthimala) or the vivascious Helen? All through Jewel Thief I kept wondering how Vyjayanthimala could be in a movie without dancing?
Then finally at the movie’s climax she delivered in this fantastic number “Hoton Pe Aisi Baat” with Lata Mangeshkar as the playback singer. Once again the music is by S.D. Burman. It’s because of this number that I officially choose Vyjayanthimala as my match for the jewel thief:
Thanks to crandallmcgee for the video
And for a little extra fun, since I love to see Johnnie Walker used in Bollywood movies, not to be confused with Johnny Walker, who I also like to see in Bollywood movies, I’ll include a few screen images from the movie featuring Johnnie Walker.
Food and whisky for days!
