Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was a remake of the hit Tamil film "Madras to Pondicherry" (1966). It, in turn, may have inspired the Marathi film "Navra Maza Navsacha" (2004) which was remade in Kannada as "Ekadantha" (2007).
  • Amitabh Bachchan's association with Anwar Ali, Mehmood's brother, helped him get a role in this film. Bachchan was Anwar Ali's roommate at the time. Mehmood met Amitabh through his brother and, impressed by Amitabh's deep baritone, picked him for the film's lead role.
  • In a nod to the reigning superstar of the time, Anwar Ali played the role of Rajesh, a bus driver and Mehmood played the role of Khanna, a conductor in this film.
  • Mehmood had initially offered the lead role in this film to Rajiv Gandhi, the son of India's Prime Minister at the time, Indira Gandhi. The role went to Amitabh Bachchan after the political scion declined the offer.[MR9]
  • It was Amitabh Bachchan's work in this film, particularly its action-filled climax, that helped him bag his career-making role in "Zanjeer" (1973). Filmmaker Prakash Mehra had initially offered this role to Raaj Kumar, Dev Anand and Dharmendra, and was at his wit's end when all of them had refused. Actors Pran and Om Prakash had then recommended Amitabh to Prakash Mehra. Mehra wasn't convinced but asked the writers of "Zanjeer" (1973), Salim - Javed, to watch this film and assess if Bachchan would work for the role. The writer duo gave Mehra the go-ahead to get the young actor on board after watching the film and paved the path for Amitabh's rise to stardom.[1][MR36]
  • In an interview, Amitabh Bachchan used this film as an example to illustrate Shatrughan Sinha's ability to steal scenes even when he was a minor player. In a scene in this film that focussed on Amitabh and Aruna Irani, and in which Shatrughan Sinha was in the background, Sinha blew smoke rings that went past the lead actors, thus drawing attention to himself.[MR35]
  • This was South Indian filmmaker S. Ramanathan's first Hindi film as a director.

    Song

  • Dekha Na Haay Re Socha Na Haay Re - Amitabh Bachchan was a rather reluctant dancer in his early days as an actor. His energetic performance in this song was the result of Mehmood's counsel, and the encouragement of the people on the set, who applauded Bachchan's moves on Mehmood's directions.
  • Dekha Na Haay Re Socha Na Haay Re - The "dole dole dole dole" phrase in this song was a last-minute inclusion before recording and was inspired by Amit Kumar's presence in the studio. "Dole" was Mehmood's nickname for Amit Kumar.
  • O Mehki Mehki Thandi Hawa - This song was inspired by The Beach Boys song "Help Me, Rhonda" (1965).[2]
  • O Mehki Mehki Thandi Hawa - Kishore Kumar appeared in a cameo role playing himself in this film. He not only sang this song but also appeared on screen for it.
  • Tum Meri Zindagi Mein Kuch Is Tarah Se Aaye - The tune of this song was inspired by the theme of the film "Limelight" (1952), composed by Charlie Chaplin. R.D. Burman adapted the theme again for the song "Main To Chala Pee Kar" ("Mukti", 1977). Two other Hindi film songs were inspired by this theme - "Zindagi Hai Kya Sun Meri Jaan" ("Maya", 1961) and "Yeh Raat Yeh Tanhaiyan" ("Gunaah", 1993).[3][4][5][6]
  • Tum Meri Zindagi Mein Kuch Is Tarah Se Aaye - This composition almost did not find a release. R.D. Burman had initially composed it for a duet sung by Hemant Kumar and Geeta Dutt in Guru Dutt's shelved project "Raaz". The version recorded for this film retained the original lyrics of the mukhda by Shailendra but the rest of the lyrics were by Rajendra Krishan. While the song was not picturized, it was included in the film's audio release. This tune was also used for the Bengali film song "Ki Kore Janle Tumi" ("Devata", 1998) sung by Amit Kumar.[7][8]
  • Listen To The Pouring Rain - This was a medley made up of 5 cover songs - "Listen To The Pouring Rain", based on Jose Feliciano's "Rain" (1969), "Temptation", originally recorded by Bing Crosby for the film "Going Hollywood" (1933), "I Married A Female Wrestler", a popular Goan song, "Fever" (1956), originally recorded by Little Willie John, and "It's All Right With Me", originally written by Cole Porter for the musical "Can-Can" which first played at Broadway in 1953. Usha Uthup changed the lyrics of the songs to circumvent potential copyright challenges.[9][10][11][12]
  • Listen To The Pouring Rain - Usha Iyer not only sang this song but appeared on the screen for it.
