Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was Ramesh Sippy's second film after his blockbuster hit "Sholay" (1975) with Amitabh Bachchan, writers Salim - Javed, music director R.D. Burman and lyricist Anand Bakshi. The film was three years in the making because of the difficulties in scheduling shoots while accommodating the availability of its large star cast. Ramesh Sippy had initially considered pairing Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan in the film, with Dharmendra playing the role that was eventually played by Amitabh. However, he changed his mind since he felt that it would be difficult to manage the two stars - a problem he didn't have in "Sholay" (1975) since Amitabh was yet to ascend to superstardom.[1][2]
  • Bindiya Goswami landed a role in this film during the making of "Gol Maal" (1979). Writer Salim Khan took the actress to meet Ramesh Sippy after taking Hrishikesh Mukherjee's permission, and Bindiya bagged the role 10 minutes into the meeting.[3][4]
  • Several elements in this film were inspired by the James Bond film franchise. These included the title song and the opening credits, the car chases, elaborate sets and gadgetry, and the villain Shaakaal, who was modelled after the fictional Bond character Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Shaakaal became the career-making role for actor Kulbhushan Kharbanda, who till then had played only minor roles in films.
  • R.D. Burman used a variation of the horn section in the "Shakal Introduction Theme" instrumental piece in this film in the second interlude of the song "Dekhta Hoon Koi Ladki Hasin" ("Sanam Teri Kasam", 1982). This horn section may have inspired the tune of the first line of the song "Deewana Dil Deewana" ("Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa", 1994).[5][6][7]
  • This film was re-released in 2005, on the 25th anniversary of its release.[8]
  • Parveen Babi had her first publicly known nervous breakdown in 1979, during the making of this film. She took a break following the episode and spent time in the US with U.G. Krishnamurti, the philosopher and guru she followed. Krishnamurti advised her to quit the show business, but Babi returned to India and not only completed this film but went on to sign many more films.[MR48]
  • Shatrughan Sinha's father passed away during the making of this film. One of the many things that may have resulted in the deterioration of his relationship with Amitabh Bachchan was the fact that Amitabh did not visit him after his father's death to offer condolences.[MR35]
  • This was actor Mazhar Khan's debut Hindi film.

    Song

  • Mitwa Tere Liye Jeena Tere Liye Marna - This song was part of the film's audio release but wasn't included in the film.
  • Pyar Karne Wale Pyar Karte Hain Shaan Se - The synth bass in this song may have been inspired by Donna Summer's hit pop song "I Feel Love" (1977).[9]
  • Yamma Yamma - R.D. Burman was not satisfied with Mohammed Rafi's singing in this song and was planning to re-record it. However, that never happened because Rafi passed away soon after the original recording. It was the only song which R.D. Burman and Rafi sang together.[MR9]
  • Yamma Yamma - The vocals and music of this song were sampled in the title song of the Hindi film "Mubarakan" (2017).[10]
  • Dariya Mein Jahaaz Chale Pasha - R.D. Burman's percussionist Amrutrao Katkar was made to consume a lot of savouries and his burps resulting from them were recorded and used in this song.[MR9]
