Trivia


 

    Album

  • The film was based on the legend of a 16th-century singer who challenged Emperor Akbar's court musician Tansen. The opening credits carried the message, "Around the popular figure gathers many a legend that obscures history, if any... and what is history but legend agreed upon?!". This message was also displayed in Hindi and Urdu.
  • Vijay Bhatt had initially thought of casting Dilip Kumar and Nargis in the film's lead roles. However, Nargis's reluctance to work outside the RK Films banner and budgetary constraints led to Meena Kumari and Bharat Bhushan being cast instead. The film was a big hit and helped establish Meena Kumari and Bharat Bhushan as the industry's leading actors. The film also revived the career of the singer-actor Surendra who played the role of Tansen in it.[MR10]
  • Naushad is credited with mainstreaming Hindustani classical music with his score for this film. His compositions for the film were raaga-based or imbibed the ethos of Hindustani classical music. The film introduced two illustrious classical vocalists to Hindi cinema - Ustad Amir Khan and D.V. Paluskar. It acknowledged their status by giving them top billing among the playback singers in the opening credits. The credits read - "D.V. Paluskar, Sangeet Pravin (son of Late Vishnu Digambar)" and "Ustad Amit Khan (of Indore)". Naushad's music for the film received popular and critical acclaim and he became the first person to receive the Best Music Director award under the newly instituted Filmfare Awards, which was then named The Clares, after The Times of India critic Clare Mendonca. This was the only Filmfare Award of his career.
  • Kavi Pradeep was originally picked as the lyricist for this film. However, when he went to meet Naushad, the music director kept him waiting. This annoyed Kavi Pradeep so much that he walked out of the film. Naushad's long-standing partner, Shakeel Badayuni was then picked as the film's lyricist.[1]

    Song

  • Sancho Tero Naam Ram - Hridaynath Mangeshkar, the brother of singers Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Meena Mangeshkar and Usha Mangeshkar, debuted as a playback singer in Hindi films in 1952 at the age of fifteen. This song along with "Badlegi Yeh Duniya Ek Din Badlegi" ("Sanskar", 1952) and "Yeh Duniya Kaisi Hai Bhagwan" ("Diwana", 1952) were his first Hindi film songs.[2][3]
  • Tu Ganga Ki Mauj Main Jamuna Ka Dhaara - Meena Kumari had a close call with death during the shooting of this song. The boat she was rowing drifted off to deep waters. She might have drowned if she hadn't been rescued by the film crew.[MR10]
  • Tu Ganga Ki Mauj Main Jamuna Ka Dhaara - The shooting of this song, and consequently the entire film, was delayed when Meena Kumari was injured in a road accident. The actress lost the pinky of her left hand as a result of this injury. For the rest of this film and her career, she had to find ways of keeping her left hand hidden from the camera.[MR10]
  • Tu Ganga Ki Mauj Main Jamuna Ka Dhaara - Music director P. Shamanna reused the tune of this hit song for the Kannada film song "Ee Samsara Naukeyu" ("Gandharva Kanya", 1955).
  • Mohe Bhool Gaye Saanwariya - Lata Mangeshkar had a high fever during this song's recording. She laboured on despite her discomfort and delivered a memorable song.[MR10]
  • Mohe Bhool Gaye Saanwariya - This song opened with lines written by Meerabai - "Jo main aisa jaanti ke preet kiye dukh hoye / To nagar dhindhora peet.ti ki preet na kariyo koy". This doha was used in a few other Hindi film songs including "Koi Dil Na Kisi Se Lagaye" ("Nakhre", 1951), "Jo Main Aisa Janti Preet Kiye Dukh Hoy" ("Batwara", 1989), "Jo Main Janti Ki Preet Kare Dukh Hoye" ("Khoobsurat", 2014).[4][5][6]
  • Man Tarpat Hari Darshan Ko Aaj - This song is often cited as an example of secularism in Bollywood - a Hindu bhajan sung, written and composed by Muslims, namely Mohammed Rafi, Shakeel Badayuni and Naushad.
  • Man Tarpat Hari Darshan Ko Aaj - The tune of this song may have been inspired by the Hindi film song "Hari Base Sakal Sansara" ("Achhut Kanya", 1936).[7]
