Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was a bilingual film released simultaneously in Hindi and Bengali. The film used Bengali actors who could also speak Hindi. The film's lead actor Uttam Kumar, who was looking to find a footing in Hindi cinema, had to work hard at improving his Hindi diction.
  • This film was based on the Bengali novel "Naya Basat" by Shaktipada Rajguru. The novel's title was the name of a village in West Bengal where its story was set. When filmmaker Shakti Samanta read the novel, he asked Rajguru if the village of Naya Basat was fictitious. Rajguru told him that it was real and encouraged him to visit it. Samanta was so enamoured of the place when he visited it that he decided to not only make the film based on Rajguru's novel but also to film it in Naya Basat. Samanta built sets in the village as well as accommodations for the film's cast and crew. After a month-long shoot, Samanta donated the facilities to the village which started using them to house tourists.[1]
  • This was filmmaker Shakti Samanta's first Bengali film. Although he was a big name in the Hindi film industry, Samanta was not sure how his film would be received in Bengal. He needn't have worried - the Bengali film was a big success and won him a sobriquet that had belonged to Uttam Kumar till then - Guru. The success of the film also started the trend of bilingual films released in Bengali and Hindi.[2]
  • Encouraged by this film's success, Shakti Samanta made another bilingual film in Hindi and Bengali - "Anand Ashram" (1977) - with many of the same cast and crew, including dialogue writer Kamleshwar, music director Shyamal Mitra, lyricist Indeevar and actors Sharmila Tagore and Uttam Kumar. However, unlike this film, "Anand Ashram" (1977) was a failure.[3]
