OMG...this is sad news indeed.
I grew up watching his movies.
Still remember the Sunday evening movie on Doordarshan, long before the crazy days of cable television.
I have fond memories of watching Junglee, Teesi Manzil, Tumsa Nahin Dekha, Janwaar, Laila Majnu, Kashmir ki Kali, An evening in Paris, etc.

Almost complete, except for some of the recent ones with special or one-off appearances.

Correction: Rishi Kapoor acted in Laila Majnu and not Shammi Kapoor.
Anyways; Most Shammi Kapoor's songs are memorable. Mohamed Rafi once said that the actor he loved to sing most is Shammi Kapoor, more than any other actor.
May his soul RIP!

No correction needed...Shammi Kapoor's Laila Majnu pre-dates Rishi Kapoor's by several decades ;)
Shammi Kapoor's version had some of the greatest songs by Talat Mahmood.
Including all time haunting melodies such as Aasmaan wale teri duniya se and chal diya kaarwaan
Ironically, the asst. music director of this movie was the great Sardar Malik - father of the great rip off artist Annu Malik.

Shammi Kapoor. May his soul rest in peace.

I too grew up watching and enjoying each of his movies. Loved Teesri Manzil, Brahmachari, Kashmir Ki Kali, Janglee, Andaz, Vidhata, etc. Go for his movies if you want a clean and light hearted affair coupled with the dance moves that was even envy of any actress during his times.

He was the gem of Hindi cinema. One of it's kind where you would only look at him graciously alongwith his moves, regardless of any beautiful/pretty actress that accompanied him on screen. You almost forget the surroundings on screen when he is upto his antics. Such was his persona, style, and screen presence. His dance moves unmatched for any actor of his times. His natural acumen for acting even stood him out among his contemporaries.

Each and every movie of his also boasted of the highly popular and melodious songs, such as Tumne mujhe dekha, Is rang badalti duniya mein, Akele akele kahan ja rahey ho, Ehsaan tera hoga mujhpar, Deewana hua badal, Deewana mujhsa nahin, Kisi na kisisey kahin na kahin, Janam janam ka saath hey, etc. Mohd. Rafi was known as his voice, and when Mr. Rafi passed away, Shammi was known to say that his voice was lost. You can't imagine any other actor filming all those melodious and foot-thumping numbers with such an ease and style. He was truly an icon and as seen from the interviews was a completely down to earth and humble human being. May his soul rest in peace.

Shammi jee. You'll be missed. :(
