Mr India

Mr India (1961) was another small budget film starring the charming Geeta Bali ji. As we have mentioned earlier (and has been discussed a lot on the net), in spite of great talent, Geeta Bali ji rarely got opportunities to work with big banners and popular stars. In this film, her hero was I S Johar.

The film’s music was composed by G S Kohli sahab, who was a long time assistant to O P Nayyar sahab. Geeta ji sang two songs for this film. To the best of our knowledge/resources, these are the only songs she ever sang for G S Kohli sahab. The lyrics were penned by Jaan Nisar Akhtar sahab.

1) Dekha naa jaaye :

This song is filmed on the dancing diva Helen.

2) Main maachis ki teeli:

This beautiful song was deleted from both VCD and DVD. We believe that it was filmed on Helen as well.
