Strap yourself in for the latest Retro Bollywood mindblower - from the film Teesri Manzil (1966); this is very Powell/Pressburger.

You have to see the rest of the film! Helen is gorgeous throughout, plus Shammi Kapoor does his best Bollywood Elvis in a number sort of similar to that overly familiar opener from Gunaam. It's beautifully shot and cut with a bunch of fantastic Hitchcockian moments.

If pressed I'd say it's amoung my most favourite films from anywhere - it's a beaut!!

(PS - Happy New Year!)

I have to agree - Teesri Manzil is a fantastic film and has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard.
I'm completely in love with the film.
Besides it has Helen in a sparkly pink dress dancing inside a giant eye:

Here's a great review of the film:
