An Evening in Paris (1967) – A Complete Analysis
- Deepa (Sharmila Tagore) is a rich girl and has had 3 failures in love. So, she goes to Paris looking for real love. She tells everyone a sob story of her being a maid and Indian men preferring rich girls. But, this makes her vulnerable to wayward men and she can be raped, killed and her body disposed off without leaving a trace. She should have remembered that she is a lone girl in a strange country. Who knows what kind of men have been told about her predicament by her? It is only her luck that she meets Shyam/Sam (Shammi Kapoor), instead of a criminal.
- Deepa is gallivanting all over Europe alone. It is a different matter that Sam is following her. But, she intends to be alone and tries to avoid him. This is again an activity that might attract the wrong attention.
- Music by Shankar-Jaikishan and lyrics by Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra are good.
- I love all the songs.
- We had an audio cassette of this movie’s songs. It did not contain the songs, Hoga tumse kal bhi samna… and Zubi zubi zalebu…
