    Bobby  was widely popular, and widely imitated. It also represented the film début for Dimple Kapadia and the first leading role for Raj Kapoor's son, Rishi Kapoor.

    The movie is known to be a trend-setter in its own right. It introduced in Bollywood the genre of teenage romance with a rich-vs-poor clash as a backdrop. Numerous movies in the following years were inspired by this plot.

    Indiatimes Movies ranks the movie amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films. The film became a "blockbuster" and was the top grossing hit of 1973 and also became the second top grossing hit of the 1970s decade.
