In the song "Don't Worry Be Happy", the film director is wearing white shoes. After he jumps to the swimming pool and he gets up from there he is wearing black shoes.

Revealing Mistakes
Toofan shoots arrows from his weapon at the enemies, but his weapon is always shown in the next scene loaded, not a single arrow used.
Ketan Desai could not get the desired storm effects, despite using nine storm fans. He ended up hiring 200 locals and made them climb the trees and shake them.

"Aaya Toofan" (the title song) was the last song Kishore Kumar sang for an Amitabh Bachchan movie before his death.

Amrita Singh's character's name isn't revealed throughout the film.
