A successful Hindi remake of Chanakya’s equally successful Telugu Ramudu Bheemudu (1964, with NTR) and Tamil Enga Veetu Pillai (1965, with MGR). In a double role Dilip Kumar plays twins separated at birth who grow up to become the timid Ram, who is terrified of villain Gajendra (Pran), and the boisterous Shyam. They are mistaken for each other, even by their respective girlfriends Anjana (Rehman) and Shanta (Mumtaz).
Nirupa Roy plays Dilip Kumar's older sister in the film when in real life Dilip Kumar is in fact 9 years older than her.
The film was previously produced as Ramudu Bheemudu (1964) starring N.T. Rama Rao.
This was the first film in which Dilip Kumar was portrayed in a double role.
There is scene a hotel scene from the movie where Shyam eats a lot of food and Ram is made to pay the bill. This was copied by David Dhawan in his film Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan (1998).
