‘Gumnaam’ film came as gust of fresh air as a mystery as well as a super duper musical hit !!
1965, Manoj Kumar, Nanda, Mehmood, Helen, Pran...
Rafi, Sharada, Shanker-Jaikishan.
Gumnaam is a must see film if you want to shiver in fear !!
Shanker-Jaikishan introduced jazz music in this film in a big manner.
This song Shankar gave to Sharada, his muse to sing.
Mehmood won Filmfare award as a best supporting actor. Also he charged more fee than Manoj Kumar, the hero.
That was the super level of comedy of Mehmood.
His comedy would make films a success in those days !!
