Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was based on the Bengali novel "Pathik" written by Samaresh Basu.
  • Gulzar produced only two Hindi films in his career. Both films were co-produced with Pranlal Mehta and released in 1977 under the banner of Meghna Movies, named after Gulzar and Raakhee's daughter. This was one of the two films. The other film was "Kinara" (1977).[1]

    Song

  • Dhanno Ki Aankhon Mein - This song was perhaps the first instance of a guitar used with a flanger in a Hindi film song.[MR9]
  • Hari Din To Beeta Shaam Hui - This was singer Rajkumari's last Hindi film song. She had started work as a playback singer in Hindi films in the 1930s and worked till offers had dried up in the mid-1950s. She had made a comeback with a song in the film "Pakeezah" (1972) and finally retired for good after this song. It was Rajkumari's son, who was assisting Gulzar at the time, who suggested her name for this song. Gulzar and R.D. Burman then visited the singer to convince her to come out of retirement to sing this song.[2]
  • Hari Din To Beeta Shaam Hui - This song was based on the Bengali kirtan "Hari Din To Gelo Sandhya Holo" written by Kangal Harinath in the 1800s. The Bengali song is known for Chunibala Devi's rendition in Satyajit Ray's classic "Pather Panchali" (1955).[3][MR9]
  • Mere Saath Chale Na Saaya - This song was based on the Bhatiali folk song "Janam Dukhi Kapal Pora".[4]
