Dilruba maine tere pyaar mein kyaa kyaa na kiyaa

Posted on: December 11, 2011


There were three top heroes in Hindi movies in 1950s. Of them, viz. Raj Kapoor expired in 1980s and Dev Anand just a few days back. One of them, viz Dilip Kumar is still around. He in fact is celebrating his 89th birthday today. He was born on 11 th december 1922 in Peshawar,now in Pakistan. He made his debut in Hindi movies with “Jwaar Bhata” (1944) and his made his mark as a hero with “Jugnu” (1947) and soon he became a hot property in Hindi movies and earned him the sobriquet of “Tragedy king”. It is not an accurate description, becuase he has worked in several light hearted movies as well.

On the occasion of his 89th birthday, here ia a song from “Dil Diya Dard Liya” (1966). This song is sung by Rafi and it is picturised on Dilip Kumar and Waheeda Rehman. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist and music is composed by Naushad.

This song is in fact the title song of the movie since the phrase “Dil Diya Dard Liya” figures in the song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. Translation has been provided by Sudhir Jee.

Song-Dilruba maine tere pyaar mein kyaa kyaa na kiyaa (Dil Diya Dard Liya)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

ummeedein
aarzuein
khelti hain,
yoon mere dil se
palat aati hain maujein jiss tarah
takraa ke saahil se

dilruba maine tere pyaar mein
kya kya na kiya
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya
kabhi phoolon mein guzaari
kabhi kaanton mein jiyaa
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya

zindagi aaj bhi hai,
bekhudi aaj bhi hai
pyaar kehte hain jisse
woh khushi aaj bhi hai
maine din raat mohabbat ka
teri jaam piyaa
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya
dilruba maine tere pyaar mein
kya kya na kiya
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya

kya kahoon tere liye
maine aansoon bhi piye
kabhi khaamosh rahaa
kabhi shiqwe bhi kiye
kar liya chhaak garebaan
kabhi daaman ko siyaa
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya
dilruba maine tere pyaar mein
kya kya na kiya
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya

pyaar ki jaan hai tu
dil ka armaan hai tu
kaun duniya se dare
jab nigehbaan hai tu
apni kashti ko
sahaare pe tere chhod diya
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya
dilruba maine tere pyaar mein
kya kya na kiya
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya
kabhi phoolon mein guzaari
kabhi kaanton mein jiyaa
dil diya dard liya,
dil diya dard liya

ummeedein, aarzuein khelti hain yoon mere dil se
palat aati hain maujein jiss tarah takraa ke saahil se

Hopes and aspirations, they play so with my heart
Like the waves that keep touching the shores
And then forever receding too

dilruba maine tere pyaar mein kya kya na kiya
dil diya dard liya
kabhi phoolon mein guzaari, kabhi kaanton mein jiyaa
dil diya dard liya

My fond adoration for you, o thou the stealer of my heart
What all have I not endured
I gave away my heart (to you)
And bargained anguish for myself
Times were that I enjoyed the flowers
But also, suffered the thorns
I gave away my heart (to you)
And bargained anguish for myself

zindagi aaj bhi hai, bekhudi aaj bhi hai
pyaar kehte hain jisse woh khushi aaj bhi hai
maine din raat mohabbat ka teri jaam piyaa

Life sustains today, as before
And so does the oblivion (from self)
The happiness that is my fond devotion (to you)
Accompanies me yet
The potion of your love is the drink
That I savor
Each day
Each night

kya kahoon tere liye, maine aansoon bhi piye
kabhi khaamosh rahaa, kabhi shiqwe bhi kiye
kar liya chaak garebaan, kabhi daaman ko siyaa

(There have been times when)
I have been overwhelmed with tears of anguish
For your sake
Enduring wordlessly, at times
And at other times, voiced complaints
Times were
When I would shred my own raiment
And then sometimes
I would repair my own

pyaar ki jaan hai tu, dil ka armaan hai tu
kaun duniya se darey jab nigehbaan hai tu
apni kashti ko sahaare pe tere chhod diya

You are the essence of love (that flows in me)
You are the longings that abound in my heart
There is no fear of anything in this world
For you are the one watching over me
I have let free this ferry (of my heart)
In trust upon you

Happy Birthday, Dilip saab!
I must admit that early on in my life I was not a particularly big fan of Dilip saab because his movies were usually black-and-white slow movies with a lot of Lata “crying” songs. 😉 Hey, I was only in school then – and there was no way I’d have preferred a Dilip movie over a Rajesh Khanna or Dharmendra timepass movie at that time. 🙂

But then, later in life, when I saw more of Dilip saab, I realised that all the fuss about him had a solid basis – he was just an outstanding actor, probably the very best ever. His ability to emote held me in absolute awe. There are still a lot of Dilip saab movies I’ve not seen since my childhood but I’ll be happy to see many of those tearjerker movies (which I ran away from as a young boy) now, just to see Dilip saab’s acting.

One more thing I like a lot about Dilip saab is his command of Urdu. It is just so wonderful to hear him speak in Urdu.

All in all, I may have been a late convert to becoming a Dilip fan, but I’m now a big fan of the thespian of Hindi cinema.

Thanks for posting this song on his birthday, Atul.

Like you, I too disliked Dilip Kumar movies in my younger days, especially those movies where he would sing sad songs for much of the movies and would get bashed by the villain throughout the movie. It was only later that I realised that he had played non tragic roles as well in his career.

Like

Apparently he got stereotyped as a tragic hero in the early 1950s and kept getting and playing such roles. Considering what an intense actor he was, such roles got into his head and he went into depression. It was then, on psychiatric advice, that he switched to light and fun roles.

Like

Thanks for this information. That way he took a course directly opposite to Meena Kumari, the tragedy queen. Meena Kumari started with light roles, then went into tragic roles and her life imitated her tragic roles leading to her sad and early demise.

I don’t recommend you see this film unless you are really in the mood for a lot of tears, a drunken Pran whipping people, and OTT melodrama 😀

I know, I know ! 🙂 I passed over the opportunity of watching this movie with likeminded pre teen mates, when this movie was being shown for free in our locality in 1970s, when we realised what was in store for us in this movie.

I did cry watching Pran whipping people. :cry:(he did same in Ram Aur Shyam):evil: lekin uske baad jab usko maar padti hai tab aap sab ne taaliyan nahin bajaayee? 😀 Main to choti thi lekin thodi saari hindi movie dekhne ke baad itana zaroor samajh gayee thi ki boore aadmi ke boore din movie khatma hone se pahele aayenge hee. 😆

I am just mesmerized by Waheeda ji`s beauty and the beautiful sets created for this movie and the music: “Ek se badhakar ek gaane” gaane by rafiji, ashaji, lataji.

even two mujras picturised on vampish RAANI are very much dear to me.

I love this song and it looks even better in this video. Waheeda is as lovely as ever and the song is so smooth and silky, it makes me want to dance with Waheeda (and Waheeda will cringe if she ever saw me doing that!).

Love this song…

Why do most or many of the old songs have the introductory lines before the actual song? I mean the “Ummeeden Aarzuen…”

Thanks Atul ji- Prakash ji & Sudhir ji for this post.
I watched this movie in 1985-86 at a theatre in Parli-Vaijnath (Marathwada) and also get to watch many of the old films from 1985 to 1988 there, mainly the films of Raj Kapoor-Dilip Kumar & Dev Anand. I was very excited to know about the ‘magic’ of this trio about which I had read in magazines etc.
