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

Zulm Bhi Karte Hain Aur Kehte Hain Ke Fariyaad Na Kar

Posted on: June 19, 2017

Today, I am presenting a duet song “Zulm Bhi Karten Hain Aur Kehten Hain Fariyaad Na Kar” sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Mohammed Rafi in ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960). This song has been in my radar for more than two years, to present in the blog. However, I got overtly involved with locating the rare songs from the films of 1940s and share those. During this period, I thought that Rafi fans or ‘Sureeli’ Suman Kalyanpur fans among the Atulites would post this song on the Blog. But this did not happen. So I am destined to present this song.

I have been occasionally listening to this song during the last two years. Each time I heard this song, I felt that what a loss of opportunity for many top music directors to exploit Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur combination which has its own charm for listeners like me. There are obvious reasons for not utilising Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur combination by music directors which are known to most of the Hindi film music lovers. To evaluate what the Hindi film music lovers have lost, listen to some of her songs with Rafi given below:

Chand Takta Hai Idhar  –   Dooj Kaa Chaand (1964) – Roshan

Aapne Huzoor Mujhe Kya Se Kya Bana Diya – Fariyaad (1964) – Snehal Bhatkar

Mujhe Ye Phool Na De Tujhko Dilbari Ki Kasam –  Ghazal (1964) – Madan Mohan

Parbton Ke Pedon Par Shaam Ka Basera Hai – Shagoon (1964) – Khaiyyam

Agar Teri Jalwaa Numaayee Na Hoti –   Beti Bete (1964) – Shankar-Jaikishan

Thahariye Hosh Mein Aa Loon – Mohabbat Isko Kehten Hain (1965) – Khaiyyam

Aise To Na Dekho –   Bheegi Raat  (1965) – Roshan

Incidentally all the teasers listed above had been sung by Suman Kalyanpur with Rafi when Lata Mangeshkar  had stopped singing with him. I did not miss Lata Mangeshkar in the above listed songs.

I have done some approximate calculations of Suman Kalyanpur’s songs with Mohammed Rafi which gives me a tally of 133 songs out of the total of about 760 songs sung by her during her career.  I note from the right side of the home page of the blog that as many as 86 duets of Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur have been covered in the Blog.

While it is difficult of get the exact figure as to how many songs Suman Kalyanpur sang with Mohammed Rafi during the period when Lata Mangeshkar had stopped singing with him (1960-63). The reason is that the points of cessation/resumption of singing by Lata Mangeshkar with Rafi as well as the releases of the films are at different points of time.   One important advantage that Suman Kalyanpur got during 1963 to say 1967 was that  she started getting A grade films with top music directors as against mostly B grade films she used to get for singing during the earlier part of her playback singing career.

‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960) was a Minerva Movietone’s film, produced and directed by Sohrab Modi. The star cast included Sohrab Modi, Sulochana Latkar, Sudesh Kumar, Naaz, Subbiraj, Kavita, Balraj, Sadhana Chowdhari, Charlie, Nana Palsikar, Daisy Irani etc. I have watched the film which is available on YT with some missing portions resulting in the loss of continuity in the film’s story including the end of the film.While the subject of the film – the effect of generation gap – is good, somehow, Sohrab Modi has not been successful in making the subject interesting. Probably, financial constraint may be the reason.

It appears to me that the film was considerably delayed in production. Two signs I get from the film in this context. First, different playback singers have been used for the same character played by Sudesh Kumar for whom both Rafi and Mukesh lip sync for him. Again Mukesh lip syncs for Subbiraj and Rafi for Charlie as well. The second and more important evidence for the film getting delayed is that the credit title shows actress Sadhana Chowdhari being introduced in this film for the first time. The fact is that Sadhana Chowdhari appeared in films ‘Sahara’ (1958), ‘Post Box No,999 (1958) and ‘Bus Conductor’ (1959) which were released earlier than the  ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960).

Now the story in nutshell:

The story of the film is built around the effect of the generation gap. Inderjit, the father, (Sohrab Modi) and the owner of an engineering firm, is a strict disciplinarian and autocrat. His younger son, Kishore (Sudesh Kumar) and daughter Meena (Naaz) wish to pursue the careers in music and dance respectively which is resented by the father. He imposes his own will as to what career path they should choose. There is a resentment in son and the daughter on this issue. But they cannot express their feelings to the father because of his autocratic nature.

While the younger son is in love with Lata (Kavita) who was an orphan and given shelter in the house, the daughter is in love with Narendra (Subbiraj) whose father (Nana Palsikar) works in  Inderjit’s firm. The father resents both the love affairs mainly because they are not in the same financial status as him. Lata is sent back to her native place and Kishore is made to work in his father’s factory. Narendra’s father is dismissed from the job.

In the meanwhile, knowing her daughter and son’s preferences for their life partners, Parvati, the mother (Sulochana) secretly arranges their marriages. Inderjit is furious and in a fit of anger, he drives all of them out of his palatial house. Now he lives alone in the house.

On the marriage front, nothing works out between Narendra and Meena and between Kishore and Lata. There are arguments and quarrels. In this scenario, Kishore falls in the trap of Lily (Sadhana Chowdhari) and Meena returns to her mother.  The family is in the verge of disintegration.

[Since, the end part of the film was missing in the VCD, I am not aware as to how the film ends. But a scene shown in Inderjit’s office with Lily does gives an indication that Inderjit is prepared to mend his way. But what is the trigger that unites the family? Arun ji, in his comments on one of the songs of the earlier posted songs of this film, has indicated that]
Inderjit suffers a heart attack. The entire family comes to his side to attend to him to make him recover from the illness. This gesture makes Inderjit to realise the importance of family. The entire family is united.

The film had 9 songs all penned by Hasrat Jaipuri, the brother-in-law of Sardar Malik who set the songs to music. Four songs have been covered in the Blog. The song which I am presenting is not available on the DVD/VCD of the film. I have no idea whether the song was originally deleted from the film or deleted only from the DVD/VCD.

Without video also the song is pleasant to the ears.  It is worth noting that the first part of the last two antaras have been rendered by both the singers in higher octave.

Enjoy the romance filled teasing song written by the king of the romantic songs, Hasrat jaipuri.


Song – Zulm Bhi Karte Hain Aur Kehte Hain Ke Fariyaad Na Kar (Mera Ghar Mere Bachche) (1960) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Sardar Malik

Lyrics

zulm bhi karten hain
zulm bhi karten hain
aur kehte hain fariyaad na kar
ek bulbul pe sitam
o mere sayyaad na kar
ek bulbul pe sitam
main hoon tera meri ummeed ko naashad na kar
meri ulfat ko samajh le
meri ulfat ko samajh le
mujhe barbaad na kar
meri ulfat ko samajh le

kuchh na puchho bade zaalim hai zamaane waale
dil kahin aankh kahin jaa ke milaane waale
dil kahin aankh kahin jaa ke milaane waale
ab koi yaad bhi aaye to usey yaad na kar
ek bulbul pe sitam
o mere sayyaad na kar
ek bulbul pe sitam

sab to zaalim nahi hote hain zamaane waale ae
sab to zaalim nahi hote hain zamaane waale
ishq mein jaan bhi dete hain nibhaane waale
ishq mein jaan bhi dete hain nibhaane waale
jhoota ilzaam na de haaye re bedaad na kar
meri ulfat ko samajh le mujhe barbaad na kar
meri ulfat ko samajh le

pyaar sach hai to hamen koi shikaayat hi nahin
pyaar sach hai to hamen koi shikaayat hi nahin
ye na samajho ke hamen tumse mohabbat hi nahin
ye na samajho ke hamen tumse mohabbat hi nahin
pyaar se dil mein samaa pyaar ki fariyaad na kar
pyaar se dil mein samaa….aa

ज़ुल्म भी करते हैं
ज़ुल्म भी करते हैं
और कहते हैं फरियाद ना कर
एक बुलबुल पे सितम ओ मेरे सैय्याद ना कर
एक बुलबुल पे सितम
मैं हूँ तेरा मेरी उम्मीद को नाशाद ना कर
मेरी उलफत को समझ ले
मेरी उलफत को समझ ले
मुझे बर्बाद ना कर
मेरी उलफत को समझ ले

कुछ ना पूछो बड़े ज़ालिम हैं जमाने वाले
दिल कहीं आँख कहीं जा के मिलाने वाले
दिल कहीं आँख कहीं जा के मिलाने वाले
अब कोई याद भी आए तो उसे याद ना कर
एक बुलबुल पे सितम ओ मेरे सैय्याद ना कर
एक बुलबुल पे सितम

सब तो ज़ालिम नहीं होते हैं जमाने वाले
सब तो ज़ालिम नहीं होते हैं जमाने वाले
इश्क़ में जान भी देते है निभाने वाले
इश्क़ में जान भी देते है निभाने वाले
झूठा इल्ज़ाम ना दे हाए रे बेदाद ना कर
मेरी उलफत को समझ ले
मुझे बर्बाद ना कर
मेरी उलफत को समझ ले

प्यार सच है तो हमें कोई शिकायत ही नहीं
प्यार सच है तो हमें कोई शिकायत ही नहीं
ये ना समझो के हमें तुमसे मोहब्बत ही नहीं
ये ना समझो के हमें तुमसे मोहब्बत ही नहीं
प्यार से दिल में समा प्यार की फरियाद ना कर
प्यार से दिल में समा॰॰आ

Sadanand ji,

Suman K. sang first song with Rafi in film Shrikrishna Bhakti-55, under the baton of Chitragupta. Their last song came in Lakhpati-91 under the baton of Iqbal Qureshi.
They sang a total of 141 songs together.

-AD

Arun ji,

Thanks for the information.
‘Shrikrishna Bhakti’ (1955) was in my list but missed ‘Lakhpati’ (1991) and a few more.

I am so generous that I do not keep exclusive rights on songs of Sureeli Suman’. Look at my big-hearted-ness that I am concentrating on her Non-Film songs only and shuddering at the thought that after-all, what all of you would do, if there was a monopoly?
Please, DO NOT get offended – Take it lightly, as ‘a joke is a joke’ and should be treated as a JOKE only.

Do I hear somebody laughing? or even smiling?
