Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was director Asit Sen's remake of his own celebrated Bengali film "Deep Jwele Jaai" (1959) which was based on Ashutosh Mukherjee's short story "Nurse Mitra". "Deep Jwele Jaai" (1959) was also remade in Telugu as "Chivaraku Migiledi" (1960). Following the success of this film, Asit Sen remade another of his Bengali films in Hindi with Rajesh Khanna in the lead role - "Safar" (1970) was the remake of his debut Bengali film "Chalachal" (1956).[1]
  • Dharmendra appeared in a small but significant cameo in this film. Even in this cameo, his face was barely visible. Director Asit Sen himself played this role in the original Bengali film, "Deep Jwele Jaai" (1959).[2]
  • Waheeda Rehman landed the lead role in this film based on the recommendation of producer, composer Hemant Kumar who had produced a handful of other films starring her including "Bees Saal Baad" (1962) and "Kohraa" (1964). Hemant Kumar and director Asit Sen wanted Dev Anand in the lead role but Rehman objected since she believed that he was "too stylised and image conscious". Impressed by his performance in "Aakhri Khat" (1966), she suggested Rajesh Khanna instead.[3][4][5][6]

    Song

  • Tum Pukar Lo Tumhara Intezar Hai - This song, sung and composed by Hemant Kumar, was the equivalent of "Ei Raat Tomar Amar" from the Bengali film "Deep Jwele Jaai" (1959), the Bengali film of which this Hindi film was a remake. Such was the popularity of "Ei Raat Tomar Amar" and its significance in the Bengali original, that director Asit Sen insisted on Hemant Kumar using the same tune for this Hindi equivalent. However, since Hemant Kumar had already used its tune earlier for "Yeh Nayan Dare Dare" ("Kohraa", 1964), he was not willing to repeat it for another Hindi film song and came up with a clever compromise. While recording “Yeh Nayan Dare Dare” ("Kohraa", 1964), Hemant Kumar had discarded the introduction to “Ei Raat Tomar Amar”. He took this introduction as-is for this song but came up with a completely different tune for the rest of it.[7][8]
  • Tum Pukar Lo Tumhara Intezar Hai - The whistling in this song was Manohari Singh's.
  • Tum Pukar Lo Tumhara Intezar Hai - The tune of this song was reused for the title song of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's TV series "Talaash" which was first aired on Doordarshan in 1992. Titled "Jeevan Ek Pyaas Hai Sabhi Ko Kuchh Talaash Hai", the song was sung by Suresh Wadkar and written by Yogesh.
  • Woh Sham Kuch Ajeeb Thi - The flute in this song, composed by Hemant Kumar and sung by Kishore Kumar, was played by Manohari Singh.[MR10]
  • Title Music - It appears that the film's title music was not part of the original records that were issued but was added in later versions.
