Trivia


 

    Album

  • Inspired by Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, and after the success of the film "Shaheed" (1965), Manoj Kumar turned to direction in this blockbuster of 1967 where he played both kisan and jawan, and went on to win several awards.
  • When Rajesh Khanna turned down a negative role in this 1967 film, Manoj Kumar offered it to Prem Chopra. In the years to come, the two actors became quite the pair in several film, with Rajesh Khanna rising to superstardom and Prem Chopra becoming one of the most prominent Hindi film villains.
  • This 1967 film saw Pran shedding his villain image and transforming himself into a character actor for all occasions.

    Song

  • Kasme Waade Pyar Wafa Sab - Kalyanji - Anandji had first approached Kishore Kumar to sing this song. The song was to be picturized on Pran, who was playing a positive role (he was usually cast as a villain) for the first time. Kalyanji - Anandji had picked Kishore Kumar to ensure that the audience accepted Pran's positive role. However, Kishore Kumar told the music directors that only Manna Dey could do justice to the song and requested them to approach him.
  • Kasme Waade Pyar Wafa Sab - Ilayaraaja used the tune of this Kalyanji - Anandji song for the Tamil film song "Kanavu Kaanum" ("Neengal Kettavai", 1984). Kalyanji - Anandji had used Ilayaraaja's "Ilaiya Nila" ("Payanangal Mudivathillai", 1982) to compose "Neele Neele Ambar Par" ("Kalakaar", 1983).
  • Kasme Waade Pyar Wafa Sab - The lyrics of this song were apparently inspired by the real life story of unrequited love of an associate of Kalyanji - Anandji. A banker in Tanzania at the time, this associate - Chandra Barot - went on to become Manoj Kumar's assistant director and is best remembered for the blockbuster Amitabh Bachchan hit, "Don" (1978).
