The picture got made because of two reasons: (1) The box-office success of Love Story (1970) this film being also based on a novel by Erich Segal. The words "Love Story" were mentioned twice on some movie posters. (2) A cycle of movies about divorce and family dramas spurred on by the fact that two then recent Best Picture Oscars had been won by them [Ordinary People (1980) and Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)].

There's an Indian 1983 movie called Masoom directed by Shekhar Kapoor (who went on to direct Elizabeth) based on the same story.I would have rated that movie 7 stars, because of the way the screenplay has been modified to suit the Indian audiences.There is more melodrama and pathos in that movie than the original novel itself.A brilliant almost poetic Hindi adaptation by Gulzar. It stars Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi, two of the premier Indian character actors.And of course not to forget beautiful poignant music by R.D. Burman.Its an Indian classic...this movie, in the sense that, it bridged the art and commercial divide at a time when Indian cinema were very formulaic or only for festival audiences.
