Trivia

Director Vijay Anand first offered the role played by Ashok Kumar to Raaj Kumar. Raaj Kumar decided against it due to Dev Anand being the producer and lead actor of the film. See more »

Goofs

Just after the song, "Yeh dil na hota bechara", Dev anand is standing beside Tanuja's car. The location is apparently an open place vegetation all around. When car turns to reverse and camera angle changes, the car (and Tanuja & Dev Anand) is in a street. See more »

An excellent suspense thriller.
17 January 1999 | by (india) – See all my reviews

An excellent thriller of all time. Vijay Anand excels as Director and Editor. Performances by Dev Anand, Vyjayantimala, Tanuja and Ashok Kumar prove to be an asset to the film which has its screenplay worked out to the minutest detail. Cinematography adds to the mystery, glamour and other requirements of the story as it evolves. And to top it all, music by Sachin Dev Burman is unforgettable. "Yeh dil na hota bechara" by Kishore Kumar, "Raat akeli hai" by Asha Bhosle, "Rula ke gaya sapna mera" by Lata, "Aasman ke niche" by Lata and Rafi and "Hothon pe aisi baat main" by Lata, again reaffirm Burman Dada's unique stature as a top notch composer with a style of his own.
