Meri Surat Teri Ankhen (lit. My face is your eyes) is a 1963 Bollywood film starring Ashok Kumar and Asha Parekh.

Plot[edit]

Raj Kumar, a wealthy businessman, dislikes everything he deems ugly. When his wife Kamla becomes pregnant and gives birth to a deformed son, he asks the doctor Mathur to tell Kamla that the child was stillborn. Mathur gives the child to the Muslim couple Rahmat and Naseeban, who raise him as their own son. The child, who is named Pyare, accidentally burns their dwelling down, and Naseeban becomes a casualty. Rahmat relocates to his village when he raises Pyare as a musician. Years later, Rahmat dies, but not before informing Pyare that he is actually a Hindu. Mathur tells Pyare about his true family, and arranges a song and dance play where Pyare will perform, hoping that Raj will overcome his dislike for his now grown-up son. His efforts fail as Raj instead offers to pay compensation so that Pyare can look after himself. Pyare goes to Raj to return the money, at which point Kamla sees him and asks him not to leave and adopts him as her son. Later, Raj's other son Sudhir is kidnapped and held for 4 lakh (equivalent to 2.4 crore or US$330,000 in 2017) ransom. Sudhir's fiancée Kavita inaccurately believes that Pyare is behind this abduction. Will misfortune and tragedy also follow Pyare to his new-found family?
