Trivia


 

    Album

  • Yash Chopra launched his production house Yash Raj Films with this film. He got a lot of support from his lead actors who gave him the freedom of deciding their remuneration. In fact, Raakhee even offered to contribute to the film's finances. Lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi, who was a close friend of Chopra, told him that he would take his fees only if the film was a hit. Producer and film financier Gulshan Rai also helped finance the film with a contribution of Rs. 2 lakhs. The film went on to become a blockbuster hit and was the beginning of Yash Chopra's successful career as a producer. Yash Chopra returned Gulshan Rai's favour by directing the film "Joshila" (1973) for his banner - his first film he directed for a film he or his brother B.R. Chopra did not produce.[1][2]
  • Yash Chopra got a rather subdued response from financier Gulshan Rai and the distributors when he showed the film to them a week before its scheduled release. They were appreciative of the film but believed that its climax - involving the hero going on two live with two wives - would not be acceptable to the Indian audience. The fact that Rajesh Khanna's last few films had not done well also weighed down on their minds. Therefore, Gulshan Rai and the distributors decided to position the film as an art movie and went for a relatively small opening - only nine theatres in Bombay were booked for the film. However, their fears were unfounded. Supported by the film's popular music, the film opened strongly, grew to sixteen theatres by the end of the week and became a blockbuster hit.[3]
  • The plot of this film was loosely adapted from Thomas Hardy's novel "The Mayor of Casterbridge" (1886) and Gulshan Nanda's novel "Maili Chandni".
  • This film was remade in Telugu as "Vichitra Jeevitham" (1978).
  • Kader Khan debuted as an actor in this Hindi film. He had previously debuted as a writer in the film "Jawani Diwani" (1972).[4]
  • This was the first film Yash Chopra directed outside B.R. Films, his brother B.R. Chopra's banner. He directed five films since his directorial debut for "Dhool Ka Phool" (1959) and all of them were for B.R. Films.[5]

    Song

  • Main To Kuchh Bhi Nahin - The lines of this poem, written by Sahir Ludhianvi and recited by Rajesh Khanna in the film, became a part of Rajesh Khanna's persona in the years to come as he often recited these lines in public functions.
