Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was Usha Khanna's debut as music director in Hindi films.
  • This was Asha Parekh's Hindi film debut in a lead role. She was pitted in a screen test with another newcomer - Sadhana. Asha Parekh clinched the role when did well in the audition while Sadhana didn't turn up for it.
  • Nasir Husain had a fallout with Filmistan's Tolaram Jalan after the release of "Tumsa Nahin Dekha" (1957) and was consequently fired. When S. Mukerji quit Filmistan around the same time, Nasir Husain suggested that they keep their winning partnership intact. This was the first film under S. Mukerji's newly-formed banner, Filmalaya, and was written and directed by Nasir Husain.[1][MR14]
  • This was the first of the six consecutive films in which Nasir Husain directed Asha Parekh in a leading role. The last film in this series was "Caravan" (1971). He directed the actress again one last time in "Manzil Manzil" (1984) in a supporting role.[2][3]

    Song

  • Dil Deke Dekho Dil Deke Dekho - This song is based on the "Sugar In The Morning..." line from the song "Sugartime" (1958) written by Charlie Philips and Odis Echols. Many artists recorded "Sugartime" including Johny Cash, but the most popular version was probably the one by The McGuire Sisters. "Sugartime" itself may have been inspired by Chico Marx's "I'm Daffy Over You" (1930s). Nasir Hussain licensed the tune from music label Columbia for this song.[4][MR14]
  • Hum Aur Tum Aur Ye Sama Kya Nasha Nasha Sa Hai - Rajendra Krishan used the first line of this song's mukhda in the film "College Girl" (1960). Both songs featured Mohammed Rafi's voice and Shammi Kapoor on the screen.[5]
  • Pyar Ki Kasam Hai Na Dekh Aise Pyar Se - This Usha Khanna song is an adaptation of "Since I Met You Baby" written and recorded by R&B artist Ivory Joe Hunter in 1956.[MR14]
  • Kaun Ye Aaya Mehfil Mein (Dilruba Meri Neeta) - This song was inspired by Paul Anka's "Diana". In fact, "Diana" plays in the background in the film just before this song kicks off.[6]
