Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Aapne huzoor mujhe kyaa se kyaa banaa diyaa

Posted on: March 30, 2012


This article is written by Sadanand Kamath, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

FARIYAAD (1964) was produced and directed by Kidar Sharma under the banner of Show People. Ashok Sharma ( son of Kidar Sharma) and Zeb Rahman (also known as Preetibala) were in the lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Achala Sachdev, Dilip Dutt and Tuntun in the supporting roles. I remember to have read the reports in some of the film magazines at that time about propping up of Preetibala (Zeb Rahman) as another Madhubala in the making taking advantage of the resemblance of her face with that of Madhubala.

I have not seen the film nor could I get its VCD version. On the basis of the synopsis available on the Indian Film Trade website, the film revolves around a young man (Ashok Sharma) who has been brought up by his widowed mother in an orthodox fashion with strict discipline. In the college, he is ridiculed by his mates for his orthodox behaviour. But Manju (Zeb Rahman) is not among them and has warmth and understanding about his problem. She is harijan and orphaned. Both try to hide their love for each other due to diverse family background. Certain circumstances make Ashok to marry her, hoodwinking his orthodox mother and bring her in the family as a bride. However, one of his college mate (villain in the film) who had interest in Manju for different reasons during their college days, exposes Ashok as a cheat and liar in front of a gathering in the temple where his mother was also present. Manju is thrown out of the house. But a series of co-incidences over a period of time unite Ashok and Manju.

This film was Kidar Sharma’s second attempt to establish his son Ashok Sharma as an actor, the first failed attempt being in ‘Hamari Yaad Aayegi’ (1961). It was an irony for Kidar Sharma who having successfully introduced actors like Raj Kapoor, Madhubala and Geeta Bali, could not repeat this feat for his son. On the basis of the video clips of both these films seen by me, I get a feeling that Ashok Sharma had no aptitude for becoming an actor. A weak story line with no star value was a recipe for the box office disaster. As has been often observed in respect of many flop films, this film had also a treasure of beautiful songs which may have been forgotten by now. Such songs need to be brought to the notice of the readers of this blog for posterity. Two songs of this film have already been discussed in this blog.

The song under discussion is ‘aapne huzoor mujhe kyaa se kyaa banaa diya’ sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Mohammed Rafi. The song is penned by Kidar Sharma and set to music by Snehal Bhatkar. I am not a competent person to describe the songs in the musical connotations but I have a feeling that this song is an unusual composition defying the standard musical meters and beats. While Suman Kalyanpur renders this song in the medium pitch with a normal pace, Mohammed Rafi takes over the song to a bit higher pitch with faster pace. I like the musical piece preceding the song which is a precursor to what to expect in the song composition in terms of rhythm and beats. Even the lyrics are different with lot of repetitive words. It would have been interesting to know as to whether or not the lyrics were written to the tune already composed. This would have given us some indication as to who had to do an extra mile for making this song click. Nevertheless, this song is a splendid effort by singers, lyricist and the music director for bringing out one of the unusual compositions of the Hindi film songs for us to enjoy.

The musical piece preceding the song has been excluded in the video clip but included in the audio clip. So I have provided both the links. However, lyrics have been jotted down from the video clip with repeat lines in second and third stanzas and humming in the last two alternative lines which are not in the audio clip.

By the way, I found listening to audio clip more rewarding than the video clip.

Kamath ji,
Ashok Sharma not becoming successful has,according to me,nothing to do with Kidar Sharma.KS could launch careers of many because there were sparks in them,they were talented.Talent does not see the parentage.Ashok Sharma simply did not have it in him.Thats all !
KS must have realised it too and after this film he never tried Ashok as a Hero again.
In my comments on the song “wo dekho dekh raha hai papiha…” from Fariyad,on the 10th March 2011,I have given Ashok Sharma’s brief bio also.
-AD

You are right.
In fact I had originally written a sentence in the relevant paragraph of the write up that ‘it was more a reflection on Ashok Sharma than on his father,,,,,,,,,’. Later I deleted this sentence as I felt that I was in too much of a negative mind about Ashok Sharma 🙂

Right. He was instrumental in bringing Geeta Bali(Suhaag Raat), Raj Kapoor, Madhubala(both in Neelkamal) to the fore.
Infact the trend of famous zulfe of Dilip Kumar over his forehead was started by him. During some boat scene(was it Jogan), because of the wind blowing from the side his locks were invariably coming over his forehead. It was combed back but no avail. They had to let it be. And the style was initiated.
He had a Masters degree in Literature

Sadanand ji,
I understood what you meant by Rewarding after watching the video

Sadanand ji,

What a wonderful reminder. An enchanting number that has been a favorite since my radio listening days. Thanks for posting this, plus for all the other wonderful songs you are brining to this blog, and I have been enjoying but not responding to all 🙂

Couple of corrections to the lyrics.
The lines
“aapke (?)”
“aapke (?)”

should read
“khaak se utthaaya”
“khaak se utthaaya”

The repeated lines
“mere tere dum se”
“tere mere dum se ”

should read
“meri tere dum se”
“teri mere dum se”

meaning that – my life is, because of you, and your life is, because of me.

Regarding Ashok Sharma, let us remember this is not his first film. He has appeared in at least one earlier film from the same team – banner as Show People, Bombay, produced and directed by Kidar Sharma, music by Snehal Bhatkar, lyrics by Kidar Sharma. In the 1961 film ‘Hamaari Yaad Aayegi’ from this team, he appeared as a hero opposite to Tanuja.
