Trivia


 

    Album

  • R.D. Burman's title music for this film was based on the main theme music of "Lawrence Of Arabia" (1962) by Maurice Jarre. Decades later, R.D. Burman's adapted composition became the basis of the song "Dil Hai Bechain Aaja" ("Gang", 2000) by Anu Malik.
  • This film may have been inspired by the American film "Girl on the Run" (1953).
  • This film was a superhit in India but it was an even bigger hit in China, where it was released with the title "De Peng Che".
  • This was Tahir Husain's first film as a producer. It was his only film as a producer that was directed by his brother Nasir Husain.
  • This was the last of the six consecutive films in which Nasir Husain directed Asha Parekh in a leading role. He would direct the actress one last time in "Manzil Manzil" (1984) in a supporting role. Their association had started with Asha Parekh's debut film in a lead role - "Dil Deke Dekho" (1959).[1][2]
  • Nasir Husain's nephew Tariq was his assistant director in this film. Tariq had aspirations to become an actor but Husain had initially discouraged him. The filmmaker later decided to cast Tariq in "Yaadon Ki Baaraat" (1973) after he saw his nephew dancing at a party in his house.[3][MR14]

    Song

  • Piya Tu Ab To Aaja - R.D. Burman developed the tune of this song from a cue in the background score of the film "Jewel Thief" (1967). The cue was used in the scene in which Dev Anand's character visits Helen's apartment after the song "Baithe Hain Kya Uske Paas". R.D. Burman had assisted his father S.D. Burman in scoring the music of "Jewel Thief" (1967). He used this cue again for the mukhda of the song "Tum Jaison Ko To Paayal Mein Baandh Loon" ("Garam Masala", 1972).[4][5]
  • Ab Jo Mile Hain To - R.D. Burman had used the composition of this song earlier for the Bengali song "Jabo Ki Jabo Na", also sung by Asha Bhosle.[6][MR9]
