Teri pyaari pyaari soorat ko

Posted on: December 14, 2008


This song swept every award that it was eligible for. This song from “Sasuraal” was the top song in Binaca geetmala final of 1961, and Rafi won Filmfare best male singer award for this song. This was the second time one particular song won these two coveted honours. Rafi himself had achieved the same distinction in the previous year for “Chaudhvin ka chaand ho” for “Chaudhvin ka chaand”.

This song was picturised on Rajendra Kumar and B Saroja Devi. I vaguely recall that this song was very popular even in mid 1960s, viz a few years after 1961. So one can only imagine how popular this song must have been during its heydays.

The picturisation is typical 1960s. Rajendra Kumar is walking behind B Saroja Devi singing this song.The lady expresses her displeasure, but is secretly pleased with this attention when Rajendra Kumar is not looking. She continues walking in a garden pursued by Rajendra Kumar.

It is in fact an “eve teasing” song which is an offence even in present day India, as males are not supposed to tease females. But this being a movie, the hero gets away, and the heroine finally falls for the hero. I do not think it works out in real life that way, though.

A word about B Saroja Devi. She was a contemporary of Vyjyanti Mala, perhaps even somewhat senior, and she looked somewhat similar in built and appearance too. And I recall that she worked in quite a few well known Bollywood movies in 1950s.

Rajendra Kumar ofcourse was the Jubilee Kumar, and this movie was as big a hit as any. And as I have always believed, the music of the movie may have done more for the success of the movie that the histrionics of Rajendra Kumar. After all, Shankar Jaikishan were the undisputed number 1 music directors of those days. And the opening lines of this song (Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist) must be one of the best known lines of any Bollywood song.

Song-Teri pyaari pyaari soorat ko (Sasuraal) (1961) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

teri pyaari pyaari soorat ko, kisi ki nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur
teri pyaari pyaari soorat ko, kisi ki nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur
mukhde ko chhupaa lo aanchal mein, kahin meri nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur
mukhde ko chhupaa lo aanchal mein, kahin meri nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur

yoon naa akele phiraa karo, sabki nazar se daraa karo
yoon naa akele phiraa karo, sabki nazar se daraa karo
phool se zyaadaa naazuq ho tum chaal sambhal kar chalaa karo
zulfon ko giraa lo gaalon par, mausam ki nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur
teri pyaari pyaari soorat ko, kisi ki nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur

ek jhalak jo paataa hai, raahi wahin ruk jaataa hai
ek jhalak jo paataa hai, raahi wahin ruk jaataa hai
dekh ke teraa roop salonaa chaand bhi sar ko jhukaataa hai
dekhaa na karo tum aayinaa kahin khud ki nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur
teri pyaari pyaari soorat ko, kisi ki nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur

dil mein chubhe wo teer ho tum, chaahat ki taqadeer ho tum
dil mein chubhe wo teer ho tum, chaahat ki taqadeer ho tum
kaun na hogaa tum pe deewaanaa, pyaar bhari tasveer ho tum
niklaa na karo tum raahon par, zarron ki nazar na lage
chashm-e-baddur
teri pyaari pyaari soorat ko, kisi ki nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur
mukhde ko chhupaa lo aanchal mein, kahin meri nazar naa lage
chashm-e-baddur

This ong along with Baharoon Phool Barsao were the trade mark songs of Rafi.

Without these two songs, Rafi might not have become a household name.

We love you Rafi, we will love you forever. These was, there is nor there will be any singer like you.

I felt dispointed when I could not play -Teri pyari pyari surat ko.I was only 10 when this song was played daily by Radio Ceylon and I used to sing the song alongside.Even after 50 yrs this song is fresh as ever.I relish it.

I early eighties, the hey days of Bombay Doordarshan, this song was a regular on “Chaaya geet” which was telecast once a week on thursday. It used to be the highlight of the week. Whenever there is talk of romantic songs, this is one of the first which comes to mind. The action of Rajendra Kumar while singing this song , especially that bit about “zarron ki nazar na lage”, became his signature in later films too.

This film I think is also known for the comedy of Mehmood. I remember my mother talking about the hilarious roles of mehmood. Though dont remember watching this film, but other similar films i have seen, like ‘Love in Tokyo” and “Neel Kamal ” etc. where large chunk of the screen time was devoted to comedy scenes. Such sharing of screen time with character actors and comedians became passe, during the so called superstar era of Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh bachchan.

the first line of this song was what came to Hasrat Jaipuri’s mind when his son Akhtar was born.
