Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was the last film in which Raj Kapoor and Nargis were paired in lead roles. They worked together in 16 films over a period of eight years, starting with "Aag" (1948). They formed the lead pair in all the films except "Jagte Raho" (1956). They were said to be in a romantic relationship that did not go anywhere since Raj Kapoor was a married man. Nargis got married to Sunil Dutt in 1958.[1][2]
  • This was the rare film in which Manna Dey sang for Raj Kapoor instead of his usual playback singer Mukesh. It is said that the AVM chief A.V. Meiyappan wasn't comfortable deviating from a formula that had worked well in the past but his concerns were alleviated after listening to Manna Dey's recordings.
  • This film was adapted from the American romantic comedy "It Happened One Night" (1934) starring Clark Gable. A few other Hindi films were also inspired by the same film - "Nadan" (1951), "Nau Do Gyarah" (1957), "Solva Saal" (1958), "Basant" (1960) and "Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin" (1991). Similar plots were used in other Indian films as well - "Chandhrodhayam" (1966) and "Kadhal Rojave" (2000) in Tamil, and "Hudugaata" (2007) in Kannada.[3][4][5][6][7][8]

    Song

  • Panchhi Banoon Udti Phiroon - The tune of this song's mukhda was perhaps inspired by the tune usually used to sing the Robert Burns poem "Comin' Thro' the Rye".[9]
  • Jahan Main Jaati Hoon Wahin Chale Aate Ho - Avinash Vyas's tune for the mukhda of the Hindi film song "Aadhi Aadhi Raat Koi Sapnon Mein Aata Hai" ("Great Show Of India", 1958) may have been inspired by this song.[10]
  • Aaja Sanam Madhur Chandni Mein Hum - The accordion in this song was played by Shankar - Jaikishan's steady accordionist Goody Servai.[11]
  • Aaja Sanam Madhur Chandni Mein Hum - The tune of the song's mukhda may have been inspired by an Italian melodic riff called the "Tarantella Napoletana". The Hindi film song "Chaahe Koi Khush Ho Chaahe Gaaliyaan Hazaar De" ("Taxi Driver", 1954) and the American song "Lucky, Lucky, Lucky Me", written by Buddy Arnold and Milton Berle and performed by Evelyn Knight and the Ray Charles Band, also used the same riff.[12][13]
  • Rasik Balma Haay Dil Kyon Lagaya Tose - On winning the Filmfare Award for Best Music Director for the film, Shankar - Jaikishan asked Lata Mangeshkar to perform this song at the award function. Lata refused to do so and boycotted the function. She took objection to the fact that the Filmfare Awards recognised only the music directors and demanded that separate award categories be instituted for singers and lyricists. The Times group accepted her demand the next year. Lata Mangeshkar won the first Filmfare Award for Best Playback Singer for "Aaja Re Pardesi" ("Madhumati", 1958) and Shailendra won the first Filmfare Award for Best Lyricist for "Yeh Mera Deewanapan Hai" ("Yahudi", 1958).[14][15][MR4]
