Trivia

In the late 1960's , producer, assistant director Raaj Grover took Amitabh to meet Tarachand Barjatya for a screen test. Amitabh arrived in a taxi cab wearing a white churidar pyjama. This angered Raaj Grovel as he felt the tight fitting pants emphasized on Amitabh long and skinny legs . He told Amitabh what he felt. The appointment was for 11:05. Amitabh and Raj Grover arrived and knocked on the door at 11 pm. This angered Barjatya and he told them that he said the appointment was for 11:05 am not 11:00. The minute Tarachand Barjatya saw Amitabh he said "No heroine will ever want to work with you. You are too tall. Why don't you go and become a poet like your father." After that there was a 10 minute silence in the room. A dejected Amitabh thanked Barjatya for his time and left. Two years lated Tarachand Barjatya changed his mind about Amitabh after seeing the movie Anand. That is when Amitabh signed Saudagar. See more »

There are two reasons that makes this movie to a very good or even best. one the movie is different from most of the Indian movies. second the best performance of big b.he has extra qualities and its not the first movie which has a very simple story that he rises it up with his great acting. all the actors performed good and the dialogs are also good but the songs not much. the movie has a very good and sharp point to us, that we have to love and care what we have sometimes its priceless and in the time that we feel nothing thats the time thats good for us try to change and it'l go wrong. and as his old movies great fan i wish he did or will do more movies like it. i recommend this movie to anyone who loves Indian quality movies.
