Chamatkar is said to be inspired from the 1968 Hollywood film, Blackbeard’s Ghost. The film was remade in Telugu as Sahasa Puthrudu. The soundtrack of the film was composed by Anu Malik, and lyrics penned by Anand Bakshi. Tracks such as “Is Pyar Se Meri Taraf Na Dekho” sung by Kumar Sanu & Alka Yagnik are still fondly remembered and played today.
