The dance sequence of Raja
Kaiya Vechcha, borrows a few sequences from the English
musical "Grease", which featured John Travolta and Olivia
Newton John. Especially the sequence where the old car
transforms into a brand new one and the costumes of the cast
The little episode of Appu in love with the daughter of
circus owner, is very much inspired from the Charlie Chaplin
silent film The Circus -1928.
In the Chaplin version too, Chaplin initially assumes the
daughter of the circus owner Merna Kennedy is in love with
him. He even buys a ring for her. Later he is heart broken
when he finds her in love with someone else. Finally he
helps her marry her lover.
