Yes I agree that during that time when the songs were picturised on actors, they acted in a different kind and many were very bad dancers. Its like when it came to song picturisation, they acted different, but some of them evolved great styles which were very popular at that time. At this very moment I am listening to a Shammi Kapoor song on radio, the man was his own choreographer, but brilliantly innovative at times. Similarly, Rajesh Khanna had a unique style during songs.

The technology of visualisation and sound effects were very poor those days, so it looked funny but not funny, infact the actors were really matured those days when compared to a new gen actors.

What is regarded as in thing or fashionable in dancing or acting in present day films will look funny to future generation, say some 10 years hence. In fact what is shown as dance or acting in today's films are no different from acts put up by buffoons and circus artist in circus in the past. The difference is the act put up in circus were all live. Whereas the acts and dance that are shown in present day films are fine tuned, edited and made to look fabulous using modern day technology.
