Kalyanji Anandji took inspiration from Rufus and Chaka Khan song "You Got The Love". During the scene when Amitabh is climbing the rope up the building to meet Ifthekar, Kalyanji and Anandji sampled the guitar bass line sound used in that song. The exact part comes at 0:12 of the Chaka Khan song. But Kalyanji and Anandji took that guitar bass line portion and remade that tune/sound with a piano. The newly created sound ran deeper than the original. Years later Tone Loc took inspiration and sampled that same beat for his his song "On Fire" ( Remix). Suga T song "Woman" and Lenny Kravitz song "Its Your Life" also sampled that same beat/ tune. See more »

This movie has to be one of the best thrillers of the 70's and it still packs a punch today. The reason is simple, you think you know the whole story then suddenly the plot twists leaving you all shaken up. The script by Salim Javed was absolutely superb. Amitabh excelled in a role he was born to play. Zeenat Aman provided good support as his love interest. Even Pran lent fantastic support.
The action scenes were very well executed. The songs were simply mind blowing. My favourites were Khaike paan banaraswala and Mein hoon don. I saw the remake recently and to my surprise I was not disappointed. This movie ranks amongst the best thrillers Bollywood has ever made.
