***spoilers

The film was loosely based on the 1951 film "A place in the sun" starring Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor, Shelley Winters, Anne Revere, Keefe Brasselle and Raymond Burr.

Though the original film ends with Montgomery's character being sent to the electric chair for Shelley's murder, the Hindi film saves our hero. It is proved that Shelley's character played by Yogita Bali died of an accident and Montgomery's character played by Mithun Chakraborty could not save her because he couldn't swim.

Elizabeth Taylor's character was played by Ranjeeta.

A new character, that of Naseeruddin Shah's was introduced as Yogita Bali's brother.
