The setting is the city of Lucknow in northern India, where Islamic culture flourished. Two of the three best friends who live in this city have fallen in love with the same woman named Jameela. Aslam (Guru Dutt) and Nawab (Rehman) are the two friends caught in this love triangle with Jameela (Waheeda Rehman). An integral part of any Guru Dutt film, comic relief was provided by Johnny Walker, who plays Mirza Masaraddik Shaiza.[1]



Guru Dutt's music composer of earlier films S. D. Burman had warned him not to make Kagaz Ke Phool, which resembled his own life. When Guru Dutt insisted on making the film, S.D. Burman said that would be his last film with Guru Dutt. (Total Recall, Times Now news channel 8 July 2012). Hence, the music composing of this film was offered to composer Ravi and was critically acclaimed, and the lyrics by his all-time favourite Shakeel Badayuni. It was a creative choice of Guru Dutt's to have the title track in color while the rest of the film was in black and white.[2]
