Trivia

RD Burman was inspired by Pink Floyd's song "Shine Your Diamond". He took the opening music of the song and composed the Bengali song "TUMI KOTO JE DURE KOTHA JE HARIE GELE". He later used the tune of that Bengali song and composed the background music of Dimple Kapadia swimming in Saagar. Years later RD Burman used the same music and composed a full fledged song. Aaja Mere Jaan was not a movie planned for RD Burman. It was Anuradha Paudwal which had given him the offer to compose an album for her featuring 8 duets .There were 4 singers selected to accompany her.There were SP Balasubramaniam , Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh and Danny Denzongpa. However, then the company sat on those songs and they were not released. One of the songs composed was "AAJA MERI JAAN" which was used as the title song for the movie. 20 years later, Bhushan Kumar got DJ Phukan to compose a new version of the song with singer Mauli. This song was in the movie I Love New Year. See more »

Just a few technical issues here n there but truly a classic film!
24 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saagar boasts of amazing performances by Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia and awesome Kamala Hassan.

Wonderful music and vocals over some very nice cinematography and locations makes this film definitely a audio-visual treat.

Story might sound like a clichéd love triangle but the treatment is quite different which makes it very interesting! A bit predictable at times but the performances are so brilliant that the viewer is sucked in and he waits to see what is going to happen next.

One of the better films out of our Indian Film Industry called Bollywood. A perfect combo of music, cinematography and performances, and of course story telling!

I would rate this film 8 / 10!

I am still buzzing with the wonderful music by the master R.D.Burman!

Superb!
