Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was an adaptation of the Erich Segal novel "Man, Woman and Child" (1980). The Malayalam film "Olangal" (1982), the Hindi film "Bandhan Kuchchey Dhaagon Ka" (1983) and the Telugu film "Illalu Priyuralu" (1984) were also adaptations of the same novel. The novel was also adapted for the American film of the same title released in 1983.[1]
  • This was actor Jugal Hansraj's first Hindi film. When he debuted in a lead role in "Aa Gale Lag Jaa" (1994), his co-star was Urmila Matondkar, who had worked with him in this film as well.[2]
  • According to music director Pyarelal, R.D. Burman wasn't very happy about receiving the Filmfare Award for this album because he didn't think it was his best work.
  • This was Shekhar Kapur's directorial debut. He had started his film career as an actor, debuting in the film "Ishk Ishk Ishk" (1974).[3]
  • This film was dedicated to Guru Dutt and Geeta Dutt. It was produced by Devi Dutt, Guru Dutt's brother, and Chandra Dutt, Devi Dutt's wife.
  • The film's writer and lyricist, Gulzar, appeared in an uncredited cameo in the film. He appeared in the film's climax as the man who parked his car very close to Naseeruddin Shah's car at the train station.
  • Satish Kaushik, who had a small acting role in this film, began his film-making career as director Shekhar Kapur's assistant in this film. He was Kapur's assistant director in "Mr. India" (1987) as well. He debuted as a director in the film "Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja" (1993) when Shekhar Kapur, who was originally supposed to direct it, left the film midway.[4][5]
  • Shekhar Kapur and Shabana Azmi had become good friends after meeting on the sets of the film "Ishk Ishk Isk" (1974). They were later romantically involved and were cast together in a few films, including two in which they were paired onscreen - "Toote Khilone" (1977) and "Jeena Yahan" (1979). The two eventually parted ways but when Kapur decided to debut as a director with this film, he brought Shabana Azmi on board.[6][7][8]

    Song

  • Tujhse Naraaz Nahin Zindagi (Female) - This version of the song, sung by Lata Mangeshkar, was recorded and added to the film in the advanced stages of its production when the label HMV expressed its concerns about releasing an album without any well-known singer. Since director Shekhar Kapur didn't have the budget to shoot this song, he utilized the unused footage he had shot for the film to create this song sequence.
  • Lakdi Ki Kaathi Kaathi Pe Ghoda - Gulzar used to write a book of funny poems for his daughter every year when she was growing up. He took the lyrics for this song from one of those books.
  • Lakdi Ki Kaathi Kaathi Pe Ghoda - The opening lines in this song were sung by musician Uttam Singh's daughter Gurpreet Kaur, who was 4 years old at that time. She later sang for Hindi films as Preeti Uttam.
  • Lakdi Ki Kaathi Kaathi Pe Ghoda - One of the child singers in this song, Gauri Bapat, is the daughter of Ulhas Bapat, a santoor player who was a steady member of R.D. Burman's team.
  • Tujhse Naraaz Nahin Zindagi (Male) - This was singer Anup Ghoshal's first and most well-known Hindi film song.
