Trivia


 

    Album

  • The film was an uncredited adaptation of the Hollywood Western film "The Proud Rebel" (1958). It was remade in Tamil as "Ramu" (1966), in Telugu as "Ramu" (1968), and in Malayalam as "Babumon" (1975).
  • Singer and actor Kishore Kumar turned producer and director with this film. His son Amit Kumar also started his film career as a child actor in this film and was credited as Amit Gangoly. He was around 12 years old at the time. The real-life father and son played father and son in the film as well. Interestingly, "The Proud Rebel" (1958), the Hollywood film on which this film was based, also featured real-life father and son, Alan and David Ladd, in the role Kishore and Amit Kumar reprised. Kishore Kumar did not want to tell Amit's mother, his ex-wife Ruma Guha Thakurta, about his plans to use Amit in the film. As a result, Amit's scenes were shot over two summer vacations, when he visited his father in Bombay. Ruma was understandably unhappy when she found out eventually and gave the film's premiere in Kolkata a miss. Amit Kumar made his singing debut a few years later in the film "Door Ka Rahi" (1971). [1][MR70]
  • Kishore Kumar commissioned his friend, actor Iftekhar, to create the artwork for the film's opening credits. Iftekhar also acted in the film.
  • The title of this film inspired the title of another Kishore Kumar film - "Mamta Ki Chhaon Mein" (1988).[2]
  • Kishore Kumar was facing a severe financial crunch when he launched this film. He had to sell his mother Gouri Devi's jewellery for the initial shoots. He was said to be a generous employer despite his dire straits. He paid his staff in advance, arranged the same food for all the crew and dedicated the film to them in the opening credits - "To All Workers Big or Small Whose Efforts Have Made the Creation of This Motion Picture Possible - OUR HUMBLE THANKS".[MR70]

    Song

  • Aa Chal Ke Tujhe Main Le Ke Chaloon - This was the only song in the film for which Kishore Kumar wrote the lyrics. The rest of the songs in it were written by Shailendra. Kishore wrote this song at a time when was facing a shortage of funds. He had not paid Shailendra for his work thus far and was averting the lyricist's attempts to seek his fees. When Shailendra found out that Kishore had recorded a new song, he was furious. He thought Kishore had engaged a new lyricist without paying him his due. When Shailendra confronted him, Kishore explained that he had written the song himself and sang it to him. Impressed by the lyrics, Shailendra said that he would have written the song exactly like that! As a mark of respect to him, Kishore listed only Shailendra as a lyricist in the opening credits.[MR70]
  • Raahi Tu Mat Ruk Jaana (Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein) - According to Amit Kumar, R.D. Burman played the tune of this song on the harmonica for a background score theme in this film.[MR9]
