It was the second time that Khayyam worked for a Kamal Amrohi movie. Earlier he had given music for Shankar Hussain(1977)- a movie produced by Amrohi. There is a story as to how Kamal got liking for Khayyam's music. Once Kamal Amrohi and his wife liked a song that they had listened on radio The song was "Parbaton Ke Pedon Par" and was sung by Mohammad Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. Later on they learnt that this song was composed by Khayyam for a movie called Shagoon (1964). However, by the time Razia Sultan went on floors Laxmikant-Pyarelal became the most sought after music director duo. So, Amrohi signed them. But, he did not like one fast paced tune composed by the duo for the film and told them to compose a new tune instead. When Kamal went to duo's place to listen to their new tune, he was asked to wait as the music directors were in a meeting. Insulted that he was asked to wait by someone so junior to him, Kamal replaced them with Khayyam.
Although not a commercial success, the movie was widely appreciated for its screenplay, dialogues and direction.
