Continuity
When Kallu fails to escape from the jail, after Raghuveer beats him up there is no blood on his face. But in the cell scene where he has been chained by the officers, there is blood there.

Revealing Mistakes
When Kallu is driving the car which he borrowed from the showroom, he moves the gear lever inconsistently to put the car into reverse - sometimes backwards, sometimes forwards.
Trivia:
The popular actress Kushboo Sundar (as Baby Khushboo), played a cameo in this movie as a child artist, enacting the role of Rina.

Tinnu Anand chased Amitabh Bachchan for a year before getting the chance to show him his script. Amitabh liked, was impressed by Tinnu's confidence, and agreed to sign for the film.

Due to financial and time constraints, the song "Jahan Teri Ye Nazar Hai" was filmed on the sets of Namak Halal (1982), another Amitabh Bachchan blockbuster.

Director Tinnu Anand dubbed for several extra actors in the film.
