Trivia


 

    Album

  • The film's premise was inspired by the Hollywood musical comedy "You're Never Too Young" (1955), which in turn was a remake of the film "The Major and the Minor" (1942). The 1942 film itself was inspired by the play "Connie Goes Home" (1923), which was based on the story "Sunny Goes Home" (1921).
  • This is considered one of the most influential comedies in Hindi cinema. Scenes from it inspired sequences in several other films. For instance, the famous scene in "Sholay" (1975), in which Jai talks to Mausi, played by Dina Pathak, about Veeru's marriage with Basanti, was inspired by a scene in this film.[1][2]
  • This was the last film in which Kishore Kumar and Madhubala were paired together. Having gotten married in 1960, the actors were also a real-life couple. Madhubala had just two more releases after this film - "Sharabi" (1964) and "Jwala" (1970). She died in 1969 after a prolonged illness resulting from a heart disorder.[3][4]

    Song

  • Aake Seedhi Lagi Dil Pe Jaise Katariya - Lata Mangeshkar was supposed to sing this song along with Kishore Kumar but wasn't available due to some reason. Kishore Kumar then convinced music director Salil Chowdhury to let him render both the male and female voices in it. Kishore dressed up in drag to lip-sync his "female" voice in the song. The lines in his regular voice were filmed on Pran. Kishore also dressed up as a woman for a photograph depicting his mother in the film.
  • Are Le Lo Ji Hai Yeh Dil Ka Heera - Salil Chowdhury had used the tune of this song earlier for the Bengali film song "Ami Onek Ghuriya Sheshe Aailam Re Kolkatta" ("Baari Thekey Paaliye", 1959) sung by Shyamal Mitra.[5]
  • Aankhon Mein Tum Dil Mein Tum Ho - The composition of this song's mukhda was inspired by the American song "Buttons And Bows" (1948), composed by Jay Livingston and with lyrics by Ray Evans. "Buttons And Bows" was originally recorded for the film "The Paleface" (1948) in Bob Hope's voice and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. However, its best-known version was recorded by Dinah Shore.[6]
