Trivia


 

    Album

  • The film was an adaptation of Arun Chowdhury's Bengali story "Pasher Bari". The story was also adapted for a 1952 Bengali film of the same title, for the Telugu film "Pakka Inti Ammayi" (1953) and its 1981 remake, and for the Tamil film "Adutha Veettu Penn" (1960).
  • This was comedian Mehmood's first Hindi film as a producer. He also acted in it and faced off with another great comedian of the time - Kishore Kumar. The film was made under the newly launched banner Mahmood Productions. It is considered one of the best Hindi film comedies ever made.
  • Kishore Kumar modelled his character in the film on his uncle Dhananjay Banerjee, a classical singer.[1]
  • Mehmood had initially offered the role Sunil Dutt played in this film to R.D. Burman. Burman had acted previously in Mehmood's "Bhoot Bungla" (1965). The composer turned down the acting offer since he wanted to focus on his music career. Mehmood had thought of pairing him with Anil Biswa's daughter Shikha but opted for Saira Banu eventually.[2][MR9]

    Song

  • Main Chali Main Chali Dekho Pyar Ki Gali - Homi Mullan rang the cycle bells in this song to complement the visuals.
  • Main Chali Main Chali Dekho Pyar Ki Gali - The double accordion in this song was played by Kersi Lord and V. Balsara.
  • Sharm Aati Hai Magar - While the audio version of the song had three stanzas, the version used in the film had only two stanzas. The first stanza in the audio version was missing in the film.
  • Bhai Battoor - It appears that R.D. Burman and Rajinder Krishan adapted the opening lines of this song from a song Mehmood had used previously in his play "Chhote Nawab" which preceded the 1961 film of the same title. The play and these lines in it were written by Mehmood's father Mumtaz Ali. Mehmood had also hummed these lines in his opening scene in the film "Gumnaam" (1965).[3][4][MR9]
  • Ek Chatur Naar Karke Singaar - Manna Dey was reluctant to sing for this song since it was set up as a challenge between Mahmood and Kishore Kumar's characters. Dey was not keen on singing for Mahmood's character who would "lose" to Kishore Kumar in the film. He finally agreed after Mehmood convinced him.
  • Ek Chatur Naar Karke Singaar - This song was an adaption of a song composed by Saraswati Devi for the film "Jhoola" (1941) and sung by Ashok Kumar. The original song was titled similarly but had different lyrics. Portions of the song also borrowed from "Ban Chale Ram Raghu Rai" ("Sant Tulsidas", 1939) composed by Gyan Dutt and sung by Vishnukant Pagnis and "Chanda Re Ja Re Ja Re" ("Ziddi", 1948) composed by Khemchand Prakash and sung by Lata Mangeshkar.[5][6][7]
  • Meri Pyari Bindu (Mere Bhole Balam) - It is said that Kishore Kumar himself choreographed this song in the absence of a choreographer on the sets.
  • Meri Pyari Bindu (Mere Bhole Balam) - Kishore Kumar's character Vidyapati mistakenly refers to an Anuradha in this song. This was ostensibly his love interest who never appears in the film. The names Vidyapati and Anuradha may have been inspired by the characters of the film "Vidyapati" (1937).[8]
  • Meri Pyari Bindu (Mere Bhole Balam) - A 2017 film derived its title from this song.[9]
