Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was a remake of the Bengali film "Nishi Padma" (1970). "Nishi Padma" was directed by Aravinda Mukherji, who wrote the screenplay for this film. The Bengali film itself was based on the story "Hinger Kochuri" by Bibhutibhushan Bandhyopadhyay. Although Shakti Samanta made some changes to the original script, he retained the recurring line "Pushpa, I hate tears" from the Bengali film that became iconic.[1][MR10]
  • This was director Shakti Samanta's third consecutive hit film with Rajesh Khanna after "Aradhana" (1969) and "Kati Patang" (1970). However, he had initially approached Raaj Kumar for the male lead role in this film thinking that Khanna would not be interested in it since Sharmila Tagore had top billing in the film. When Rajesh Khanna found out about this, he went to the director and convinced him to give the role to him. Khanna didn't disappoint the director and watched "Nishi Padma" more than 20 times to get an understanding of his role. It was also he who suggested that his character's name be changed from Ananta to Anand to allude to his hit 1970 film with that title.[2]

    Song

  • Chingari Koi Bhadke - When the guitarist Bhanu Gupta made a mistake during the recording of this song, the people at the studio laughed, but R.D. Burman insisted on the guitarist playing the "wrong" chord for the final recording.
  • Chingari Koi Bhadke - Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia played the flute in this song.[MR9]
  • Chingari Koi Bhadke - This song, known for its depiction of a boat ride on Hooghly at night, was actually filmed in Natraj Studios, Mumbai. The stench of the stagnant water had made it very difficult to shoot this romantic scene. In an interview many years later, Sharmila Tagore recalled chewing gum while shooting this song to help her bear the smell.[3]
  • Raina Beeti Jaye - Music director Madan Mohan had apparently called S.D. Burman to congratulate him for composing this song. The senior Burman had to convince him that the song was actually composed by his son R.D. Burman.
  • Raina Beeti Jaye - Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma played the Iranian Santoor and Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia played the flute in this song.[MR9]
  • Yeh Kya Hua - R.D. Burman had used the tune of this song earlier for the Bengali film song "Ey Ki Holo" ("Rajkumari", 1967). The original song was also sung by Kishore Kumar.[4][MR9]
  • Bada Natkhat Hai Yeh - S.D. Burman wasn't happy with R.D. Burman's original composition for this song and had helped him modify it to its final form.[MR3]
  • Doli Mein Bithaayi Ke Kahaar - This was the only song S.D. Burman sang for R.D. Burman. It is another matter that while R.D. Burman was officially credited for it, it was S.D. Burman himself who composed this song.[MR9]
