Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was an adaptation of William Shakespeare's play "The Comedy of Errors".
  • Gulzar was associated with another adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Comedy Of Errors" before this film. He was the Chief Assistant Director for Bimal Roy's "Do Dooni Chaar" (1968) and also wrote dialogues and lyrics for the film.[1]
  • Gulzar had a hard time finding a producer to finance this film. One reason for this was the fact that "Do Dooni Chaar" (1968), the other film based on "The Comedy of Errors" he had written the script for, had been a flop. Producer Jai Singh agreed to come on board because of his appreciation for Shakespeare.[2]
  • Since actress Moushumi Chatterjee was pregnant during the making of this film, Gulzar had to rely on many long shots and closeups while filming her scenes.[MR30]
  • The characters of this film were named after the actors of "Do Dooni Chaar" (1968). Moushumi Chatterjee's character was named Sudha based on actress Sudha Sharma and Deepti Naval's character was named Tanu after Tanuja.[MR30]
  • Moushumi Chatterjee had been initially been cast in the lead role of the film "Koshish" (1972). However, she had quit the film after working on it for just three days. According to her, she had left the film due to some demands made by Gulzar that she had not agreed with. Moushumi had then been replaced by Jaya Bhaduri in "Koshish" (1972). She eventually worked with Gulzar in this film.[3][4]

    Song

  • Hothon Pe Beeti Baat Aayi Hai - It was in this song that a meend (continuous notes) was played on a santoor for the first time in a Hindi film song. The santoor player was Pandit Ulhas Bapat. Bapat had demonstrated this style of playing the santoor to R.D. Burman while riding with him in his car. Burman was so impressed with it that he wanted this style included in this song. The meend can be heard in the interlude after the mukhda and between the two antaras. Burman included Bapat's santoor meend in several songs after this including "Mera Kuchh Saamaan" ("Ijaazat", 1988).[5]
  • Pritam Aan Milo - This song was a parody of a song originally performed by C.H. Atma for a non-film album and later by Geeta Dutt for the film "Mr. & Mrs. '55" (1955). The original song was composed by O.P. Nayyar and its lyrics were written by his wife Saroj Mohini Nayyar.[6][7]
