Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was director Mehboob Khan's remake of a film he himself had directed earlier - "Aurat" (1940). "Aurat" (1940) itself was inspired by American author Pearl S. Buck's novels "The Good Earth" (1931) and "The Mother" (1934). Both Mehboob Khan films featured actor Kanhaiyalal playing the same role - Sukhi Lala, had Wajahat Mirza writing dialogues, and were shot by cinematographer Faridoon Irani.[1]
  • This was first Indian film to be nominated in the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film category. "Salaam Bombay" (1988) and "Lagaan" (2001) have been the other two films to be nominated in this category thus far.[2][3]
  • Sunil Dutt and Rajendra Kumar worked together in only one other film after this - "Phool" (1993).[4]
  • This was the first Indian film soundtrack for which 33 1/3 rpm LP records were issued.
  • This was the most expensive Indian film of its time.
  • Nargis was involved in a freak fire accident on the sets of this film. Actor Sunil Dutt rescued her from the fire and suffered burn injuries in the process. An indebted Nargis visited Sunil Dutt regularly after the accident and nursed him back to recovery. The two actors drew closer during this period and eventually got married in 1958. Interestingly, Nargis, who was five years older than Sunil Dutt, played his mother in the film.[5]
  • Filmmaker Mehboob Khan followed up this film with its spiritual successor "Son Of India" (1962). Khan cast his adopted son Sajid, who debuted in this film, in the titular role in "Son Of India" (1962).[6]

    Song

  • Dukh Bhare Din Beete Re Bhaiya - This was the only Hindi film song featuring the singers Shamshad Begum, Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi and Manna Dey together.
  • Dukh Bhare Din Beete Re Bhaiya - There were a few lip-syncing issues in the filming of this song. In the song's first antara, Nargis lip-synced for both Asha Bhosle and Shamshad Begum's lines, and Raaj Kumar lip-synced for Mohammed Rafi and Manna Dey. The same issue occurred in the song's second antara with Kum Kum and Rajendra Kumar.
  • Holi Aayi Re Kanhai - This song was preceded by a dance sequence featuring Kum Kum and the acclaimed Kathak dancer Sitara Devi. This was among the last Hindi films featuring Sitara Devi.
