In this film Amitabh is seen along with Navin Nischol and Yogita Bali. During the making of this film, Amitabh Bachchan was not a known name in the industry and he knew very few people around in Bollywood. Whereas Navin Nischol was a gold medalist from the Pune Film Institute. His first film was with actress Rekha, ‘Sawan Bhadon in 1970. The film was a superhit and Navin Nishchol had established himself as a film actor in Hindi films.
The story of the film ‘ Parwana’ released in 1971 is a story of an infatuated lover turned murderer so the film was more of a thriller film directed by Jyoti Saroop. With Navin Nischol and Yogita Bali in the lead pair, the film also had Shatrughan Sinha and Om Prakash in a special appearance and Amitabh Bachchan essayed his first negative role as the infatuated lover Kumar Sen. Though the film began like a love story but the end was more of a thriller murder mystery.
Amitabh Bachchan’s essayed the role of an artist who falls in love with Asha essayed by Yogita Bali. Asha is a dancer and she wins a trip to Ooty in a dance competition where she meets the handsome wealthy tea plantation owner Rajeshwar. Navin Nischol plays the role of Rajeshwar. When Kumar Sen finds out that his lady love is in love with Rajeshwar, he is livid . He approaches her uncle Ashok Verma played by Om Prakash to convince her to marry him and not Rajeshwar but Om Prakash refuses to comply with his wish as he knows Asha is madly in love with Rajeshwar. Kumar Sen then plots to kill Om Prakash. He does it so meticulously with a brilliant plan without leaving any clue to suspect him. Amitabh Bachchan has depicted the entire murder in sequences and finally he kills Ashok Verma and frames Rajeshwar as the murderer who is arrested and the court verdict awards him a death sentence. Amitabh Bachchan now thinks he can have Asha for himself but he was alas disappointed. Asha who is heart broken and torn between the two, promises Kumar Sen that if he manages to get Rajeshwar released from the death sentence she will marry him on this condition. Kumar Sen has realized that Asha is truly in love with Rajeshwar and that it is who has come in between two people in love. He realizes his mistake and regrets it. He decides to mend his ways and confesses and turns himself to the law giving details and his entire murder plan to Rajeshwar and how he had executed it. He ensures Rajeshwar is released and after which he commits suicide.
Initially when the film was to be released the poster of the film did not carry a picture of Amitabh Bachchan. It had only Navin Nischol and Yogeeta Bali but later after a couple of weeks after the film ‘Anand’ was released and he was getting popular, posters were released with Amitabh Bachchan.
The music for the film is composed by R D Burman and later due to some differences, music composer Madan Mohan was roped in. The lyrics is penned by Kaifi Azmi and the songs have been sung by prominent singers like KishoreKumar, Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle.
