Bhaktawar decides to dispose off Tiger, but accidentally kills his parents instead, leaving Tiger to care for his two little step-brothers alone.

Amitabh Bachchan's performance was hailed by the critics and audiences alike, winning him the Filmfare Best Actor Award in 1992.

The blockbuster song "Jhumma Chumma" was originally recorded for the Ramesh Sippy shelved film "Ram Ki Sita Shyam Ki Gita". It was to star Amitabh Bachchan and Sri Devi in double roles. When the film stopped Mukul Anand made a personal request to use the song in his film "Hum".

For a particular shot the team had to to get up before sunrise, which was in Winter Udhagamandalam (Ooty). Amitabh got up at 4.30am. He did the same thing for three days till the shot was approved.

The most successful film amongst the Mukul Anand trilogy with Bachchan which includes "Agneepath" and "Khuda Gawah".

In the film Rajnikant is shown as 15 years younger to Bachchan, when actually they are of a similar age group.

This film was Amitabh's only hit during 1991 when his other films failed to click at the box office. After its blockbuster success, he announced his retirement, but returned to the silver screen after five years.
