    "Ram aur Shyam" was a remake of a remake. A Tamil film, "Enga Veetu Pllai" had been based on "The Prince and the Pauper", "Ram aur Shyam" was the Hindi version of the Tamil film made appropriately, by the south Indian producer, Nagi Reddy. Dilip Kumar played a double role: Ram, the serious character, and his long-lost twin. Shyam, the buffoon, with a lot of the action in the movie in the great tradition of slapstick revolving round mistaken identity. It has been the model of other films .

    Dilip Kumar was going through a mid-life change. In the previous decade, he had tried to get away from being typecast as the tragic lover. This had so got him down that he had consulted two psychiatrists in London, one of them D.W.S.D Nicol and the other was Dr. Ramanlal Patel in Mumbai. This had made him take different roles. Dilip Kumar's accepting the roles in "Ram aur Shyam" was as a result of this.
