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

Tadbeer se bigdi huyi taqdeer banaa le

Posted on: October 11, 2009


This song must be one of the very first songs of its genre namely a party/ club song, where a lady sings in a bar/ club to entertain the customers, and one of the customers is the hero.

And this song is quite a well known song. In fact it has gone on to become a timeless classic. It is sung by Geeta Dutt and picturised on Geeta Bali. Geeta Dutt singing for Geeta Bali to me are much like the songs of Rafi singing for Shammi Kapoor- all these songs are sung with gusto and the picturisation too shows involvement and commitment by the actor.

This immortal song is written by Sahir Ludhianvi. The music is by S D Burman. It is difficult to imagine that such a wonderful music was composed nearly 58 yeras ago and it sounds as fresh today as it did all those decades ago.

The song is sung wondefully and it is picturised nicely on Geeta Bali and Dev Anand. And who is the barman ? He appears quite a familiar character from the movies of those days.



Song-Tadbeer se bigdi huyi taqdeer bana le (Baazi) (1951) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

he he he he he he he
he he he he he he he
tadbeer se bigdi huyi taqdeer banaa le,
taqdeer banaa le
apne pe bharosaa hai to ye daanv lagaa le,
lagaa le daanv lagaa le
tadbeer se bigdi huyi taqdeer banaa le,
taqdeer banaa le
apne pe bharosaa hai to ye daanv lagaa le,
lagaa le daanv lagaa le
he he he
he he

dartaa hai zamaane ki nigaahon se bhalaa kyun
nigaahon se bhalaa kyun
dartaa hai zamaane ki nigaahon se bhalaa kyun
nigaahon se bhalaa kyun
insaaf tere saath hai ilzaam uthaa le,
ilzaam uthaa le
apne pe bharosaa hai to ye daanv lagaa le
lagaa le daanv lagaa le

he he
he he
kyaa khaakh wo jeenaa hai jo apne hi liye ho
apne hi liye ho
kyaa khaakh wo jeenaa hai jo apne hi liye ho
apne hi liye ho
khud mitke kisi aur ko mitne se bachaa le
mitne se bachaa le
apne pe bharosaa hai to ye daanv lagaa le
lagaa le daanv lagaa le

he he
he he he
he he he he he he
he
toote huye patwaar hain kashti ke to ham kyaa aaa
haari huyi baahon ko hi patwaar banaa le,
patwaar banaa le
apne pe bharosaa hai to ye daanv lagaa le,
lagaa le daanv lagaa le
tadbeer se bigdi huyi taqdeer banaa le,
taqdeer banaa le
apne pe bharosaa hai to ye daanv lagaa le,
lagaa le daanv lagaa le

The barman is one of my favorite “background” actors, Rashid Khan. He was acting through the early 70s, especially in Dev Saab’s films.

Yes, indeed. I knew it was some Khan as I had read about him in your blog, but his first name was just eluding me.

As far as I know, Sahir Ludhianvi wrote this song as a Ghazal.. meaning.. that it was a ghazal.. which was turned into a club song by SD Burman.. & Geeta Dutt, in her jazzy style, immortalised this ghazal into a club song..

It is one of my favs!!
