Trivia


 

    Album

  • Lyricist Yogesh Gaud had an appointment with Raj Kapoor in relation to this film but was turned away by a watchman who didn't think he looked like a poet. Yogesh didn't pursue the matter further and lost an opportunity to work with Raj Kapoor.
  • This was actor Rishi Kapoor's debut film. He was 18 years old at the time.
  • The Russian actress who appeared in this film, Ksenia Ryabinkina, featured in only one other Hindi film, "Chintu Ji" (2009). She played herself in the 2009 film and was shown giving Rishi Kapoor, who played an exaggerated version of himself in the film, a book of photos from this film while the music of "Jaane Kahan Gaye Woh Din" played in the background.[1]
  • This was the debut Hindi film of lyricist Shaily Shailendra. He shared credit in this film with his father Shailendra, along with other lyricists.

    Song

  • Jeena Yahan Marna Yahan - The accordion interludes in this song were an adaptation of Ion Ivanovici's waltz composition "Waves Of The Danube".
  • Jaane Kahan Gaye Woh Din - Mukesh suffered a heart attack while performing this song at a stage show in Detroit, USA. Without disrupting the song, he called his son, Nitin Mukesh, to complete it and went backstage. He was hospitalised but succumbed the next day, August 27, 1976.[MR6]
  • Jaane Kahan Gaye Woh Din - This song was recorded in 1967 a few years before the film released. Mukesh first performed the song live at the Filmfare Awards function in June, 1967. By the time the film came out in 1970, it was already a big hit.[MR10]
  • Jaane Kahan Gaye Woh Din - Shankar - Jaikishan had used the tune of this 1970 song for the background score of a few Raj Kapoor productions in the past, including "Aah" (1953).[2]
  • Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye - This is a rendition of a song written by Harry Parr-Davies that became very popular during World War II.
  • Kal Khel Mein Hum Hon Na Hon (Jeena Yahan Marna Yahan) - This is the second part of "Jeena Yahan Marna Yahan".
