Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film with original music composed by Vasant Desai used two songs from other films - "Aa Ja Re Pardesi" ("Madhumati", 1958) by Salil Chowdhury and "Tujhe Jeevan Ki Dor Se" ("Asli Naqli", 1962) by Shankar - Jaikishan. Both these songs were a nod to Hrishikesh Mukherjee's past - he had edited "Madhumati" (1958) and directed "Asli Naqli" (1962). The director of "Madhumati" (1958), Bimal Roy, was Hrishikesh Mukherjee's mentor.[1][2]
  • This was Jaya Bhaduri's first film in a lead role. She had earlier acted in Satyajit Ray's Bengali film "Mahanagar" (1963).
  • This film was remade in Tamil as "Cinema Paithiyam" (1975) starring Jayachitra and Kamal Haasan.[MR10]
  • Hrishikesh Mukherjee had wanted an unknown face to play the role opposite Jaya Bhaduri in this film. His first choice for the role had been Amitabh Bachchan, who had even shot for the film for a few days. However, another of his films with Amitabh - "Anand" (1970) - came out during this time and became a big hit, as a result of which Amitabh Bachchan was no longer an unknown face. Hrishikesh Mukherjee then replaced him with Samit Bhanja in this film and used Amitabh in a cameo role playing himself.[3]
  • In a scene in this film, Jaya Bhaduri's character was seen watching another Hrishikesh Mukherjee film - "Anupama" (1966). A booklet of "Anupama" (1966) was also shown with an advertisement for yet another film by Hrishikesh Mukherjee - "Buddha Mil Gaya" (1971) - on its back cover.[4][5]
  • Dharmendra played himself in this film. Many other actors also appeared in cameo roles as themselves - Ashok Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Pran, Vimi and Om Prakash. The film also included footage of actors shooting for other films - Amitabh Bachchan for "Parwana" (1971), Vinod Khanna and Shatrughan Sinha for "Mere Apne" (1971), Navin Nischol for "Nadaan" (1971), and Dilip Kumar, Mala Sinha and Biswajeet shooting for "Phir Kab Milogi" (1974). Hrishikesh Mukherjee himself was the director of "Phir Kab Milogi" (1974).[6]

    Song

  • Bole Re Papihara - Vasant Desai based this song on the Raag Mian Ki Malhar composition of Sadarang, the pen name of a musician called Niyamat Khan, who served in the court of the Mughal emperor, Mohammed Shah Rangila.
  • Bole Re Papihara - Vasant Desai may have based the antara of this song on the tune of the second antara of another song he had composed a few years ago -"Jhir Jhir Barse Sawani Ankhiyan" ("Aashirwad", 1968).[7][MR10]
  • Bole Re Papihara - This song had Vasant Achrekar on the tabla, Jairam Acharya on the sitar and Zarine Daruwala on the sarod.
  • Hari Bin Kaise Jiyoon Ri - This song was not included in the film. Director Hrishikesh Mukherjee ended up using a song from another film - "Aa Je Re Pardesi" ("Madhumati", 1958) - for the sequence for which this bhajan was intended. Some consider the inclusion of this Lata Mangeshkar song in the film as the director's effort to reconcile with her after having recorded three songs by Vani Jayaram for the film and none by Lata.
  • Hari Bin Kaise Jiyoon Ri - The flute in this song was played by Manohari Singh.[MR10]
  • Humko Man Ki Shakti Dena - This song almost did not get recorded because of director Hrishikesh Mukherjee's insistence on using a Rabindra Sangeet tune for it. Music director Vasant Desai convinced Mukherjee to listen to Vani Jayaram sing his composition before making his final decision. When Mukherjee heard Desai's composition, he agreed that it was better and went ahead and used it in the film.
