Trivia


 

    Album

  • Director Sujoy Ghosh had a difficult time getting this film made. Since the film followed two consecutive flops directed by him, "Home Delivery" (2005) and "Aladin" (2009), he had difficulty in finding producers to finance it. According to him, its story appeared "unfilmable on paper". Additionally, there were elements in it that made it commercially risky - a pregnant woman as the lead character, many unknown actors, and Kolkata as the locale. Ghosh persisted despite these challenges since he wanted to make a film with Vidya Balan. It took multiple iterations of the script for Balan to finally agree to work in the film. The film ended up becoming a success story. With a budget of Rs. 8 crores and a box office collection of about Rs. 70 crores, it's considered one of the films that encouraged the trend of small-budget films in the years to follow.[1][2][3][4][5]
  • Only two of the six songs in this album appeared in the film - "Aami Shotti Bolchi" and "Ekla Cholo Re". The cymbal sounds in "Piya Tu Kaahe Rootha Re" were heard in the Durga Puja celebration sequence in the film's climax.
  • Director Sujoy Ghosh paid homage to his favorite music director R.D. Burman by using his songs in the film's background score. These songs included "Tere Bina Jiya Jaye Na" ("Ghar", 1977), "Le Kar Hum Deewana Dil" ("Yaadon Ki Baaraat", 1973), "Shono Mon Boli Tomay", "Jete Jete Pathe Holo Deri", "Amar Swapna Je", "Tu Mera Kya Laage" ("Oonche Log", 1985), and "Aaj Ki Raat" ("Jagir", 1984). The Bengali songs were equivalents of the Hindi film songs "Jeevan Ke Har Mod Pe" ("Jhoota Kahin Ka", 1979), "Tere Bina Zindagi Se" ("Aandhi", 1975), and "Apne Pyar Ke Sapne Sach Hue" ("Barsaat Ki Ek Raat", 1981) respectively. Ghosh had expressed his admiration for R.D. Burman earlier as well - his debut film "Jhankaar Beats" (2003) was a tribute to the music director.[6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13]
  • Elements in the film's twist ending were compared to the Hollywood thrillers "Taking Lives" (2004) and "The Usual Suspects" (1995). Sujoy Ghosh rejected the charge that he had plagiarised from these films.[14]
  • Kolkata Metro objected to a shot in the film's trailer in which Vidya Balan's character is pushed onto the tracks in front of a speeding train. Concerned that the scene would adversely affect the Metro's safety, the authorities wrote to the film's producers and asked them to remove the scene from the film and its trailer. However, they changed their minds and withdrew their objection when the filmmakers explained the context of the scene to them.[15]
  • The success of this film resulted in remakes and spin-offs. It was remade in 2014 as a bilingual film titled "Anaamika" in Telugu and "Nee Enge En Anbe" in Tamil. In 2016, Sujoy Ghosh made a spiritual sequel of the film with Vidya Balan in the lead again. Encouraged by the popularity of the character played by Saswata Chatterjee in this film, work on "Bob Biswas" began in 2020 with Abhishek Bachchan playing the titular role. Upon release, it will be the directorial debut of Sujoy Ghosh's daughter, Diya Annapurna Ghosh.[16][17]

    Song

  • Aami Shotti Bolchi - This was the debut Hindi film song of Vishwesh Krishnamurthy, the vocalist of the hardcore metal band Scribe. Vishwesh went on to direct the musical film "99 Songs" (2020) produced by A.R. Rahman.[18]
  • Ekla Cholo Re - This was the first time Amitabh Bachchan sang a song for a film he did not act in.
