The role of Samsthanak played by Shashi Kapoor, who is also the producer of this movie, was originally to be played by Amitabh Bachchan. However, in July 1982 Bachchan met with a major accident in Bangalore, therefore the producer himself decided to step in.The film's music is by Laxmikant Pyarelal and is still noted for its songs like, 'Mann Kyun Behka', a rare duet by Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar, and Anuradha Paudwal's 'Mere Man Baje Mridang' for which she won the Filmfare Best Female Playback Award in 1985. Suresh Wadkar also has a song, 'Saanj Dhale Gagan Tale'. The Central Board of Film Certification of India gave this movie "A" certificate which means "Restricted to adults" on 23 August 1984.

The film is an adaptation of Mṛcchakaṭika (The Little Clay Cart), a ten-act Sanskrit drama attributed to Śūdraka an ancient playwright generally thought to have lived sometime between the second century BC and the fifth century AD whom the prologue identifies as a Kshatriya king and a devotee of Siva who lived for 100 years.The play is set in the ancient city of Ujjayini during the reign of the King Pālaka, near the end of the Pradyota dynasty that made up the first quarter of the fifth century BC.
