Teesri Manzil

Directed by Vijay Anand, India, 1966, 158mins
Cast: Shammi Kapoor, Asha Parekh, Lakshmi Chayya, Prem Chopra
Print Source: Eros International

Teesri Manzil directed by Vijay AnandWhen Rupa falls from the third-floor window of her hotel the verdict is recorded as suicide, but her sister Sunita (Asha Parekh) smells a rat and travels to Mussoorie to find out more. On the train going up she encounters boisterous drummer Rocky (Shammi Kapoor) - unaware that he was Rupa's lover, and despite the fact that they argue constantly, she falls for him.

So, is Rocky the killer?

This bizarre mix of murder mystery and musical romance proved hugely successful on its release, and it's still an excellent way to while away a Sunday afternoon. Particularly enjoyable are the screwball chemistry between Parekh and Kapoor, the tirelessly inventive camera-work (including a shot from inside a guitar) and of course RD Burman's soundtrack, which introduced to Bollywood movies his own unique take on rock 'n' roll, as well as a couple of timeless duets between Mohamed Rafi and Asha Bhosle.
