Launching Shashi Week: a fashion parade of preppy, mod, twenty-something Shashi! The perfect wave of hair over his forehead. Jackets. Skinny ties. Polo shirts - with the collar up, if you're lucky. Whatever ishtyle was needed by the sassy, good-hearted, clean-cut lover boy to Shammi-shimmy, self-assuredly flirt, lounge dreamily in a flower garden, dishoom the villain, or defend Hindustan. There are a lot of juvenile antics, sweet smiles, and puppy dog eyes throughout the 1960s, but with such an early start in parallel and international cinema, the Shash of All Trades is already stretching his range into more complex characters and more subtle portrayals.
But I digress: right now we're just focusing on the pastels and pegged trousers of fabness.
Some treats from the DVD extras on The Householder (1963):
Aww! Cho chweet!
Next up: the 70s. Masala style zindabad!
