Manoranjan is a 1974 Indian Hindi film directed by Shammi Kapoor. It is a remake of Irma La Douce. Sanjeev Kumar plays Jack Lemmon's role, Zeenat Aman Shirley MacLaine's and Shammi Kapoor plays Lou Jacobi's. Hotel Casanova is called Hotel Mauj!. Among the rest of the cast are Paintal, Asit Sen and Dev Kumar.

Manoranjan is perhaps the only Hindi movie where prostitution was presented as a 'fun' activity without moralising and the lead actress sleeps with men other than the hero and is not an issue. For 1974 the film in India was a revolution, and was panned by the critics and the audience due to the sense of immorality.[citation needed]




In a 2008 interview with the BBC, Shammi Kapoor revealed that he had planned to star in Irma La Douce since the early 1960s when he first saw it in a theatre in London. He originally wanted to play the role of Nestor Patau, the honest police officer. However, by the time the film was made Kapoor felt he was too old for the role, and Sanjeev Kumar was given the part.[1] The films was shot at Mehboob Studios and Natraj Studios. Kapoor also directed a video magazine called "Shammi Kapoor Presents Manoranjan" to promote the film.[2]


R.D. Burman composed the songs. Asha Bhosle earned a Filmfare Nomination as Best Female Playback Singer for the song "Chori Chori Sola Singar," the only nomination for the film.[3]

And I saw Irma la Douce in London... That was a French play that was first on the stage in London. And I wanted then to play the role of Jack Lemmon—it was wonderful—but by the time I made the movie I was too old so I decided to direct the movie."
