Taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi

Posted on: November 21, 2011


“Saanjh Aur Sawera” (1964) is a S J Films presentation. It was produced by Sevanti Lal Shah and the movie was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherji. The sar cast included Meena Kumari, Gurudutt, Mehmood, Shubha Khote, Manmohan krishna, Ruby Paul (aka Praveen paul), Padmadevi,Preethi Bala(aka Zeb Rehman),Jagdev,Harindranath Chattopadhyaya, Kanu Roy, Rashid Khan etc.

I have discussed as many as three songs from this movie. Here is another song from the movie. The song is a background song and much to my delight, it is a rail song as well. This song is apparently the movie opening song, if the picturisation available on YT is to be believed. The picturisation shows Meena Kumari, Manmohan Krishna, Mehmood, ruby Paul aka Praveen Paul travelling in a train, while this song gets played in the background.
PS-Comments on this writeup suggest that this song may have been a deleted song from the movie and that the video version is not a real video of the song.

The song is sung by Rafi. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Song-Taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi (Saanjh Aur Sawera)(1964) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi
maaloom nahin
taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi
maaloom nahin
lekin hai yaqeen
aayegi manzil
aayegi manzil
taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi
maloom nahin

pairon ki thakan kehti hai thehar
mushqil hai dagar lamba hai safar
pairon ki thakan kehti hai thehar
mushqil hai dagar lamba hai safar
par dil kehta hai gardish bhi
aakhir to kahin pahunchaayegi
lekin hai yaqeen
aayeegi manzil,
aayegi manzil
taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi
maaloom nahin

hairat se na tum dekho mujhko
aur haal bhi mera mat poochho
hairat se na tum dekho mujhko
aur haal bhi mera mat poochho
ab meri tabeeyat baaton se
kuchch bhi na behelne paayegi
lekin hai yaqeen
aayegi manzil
aayegi manzil
taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi
maaloom nahin
lekin hai yaqeen
aayegi manzil,
aayegi manzil
taqdeer kahaan le jaayegi
maloom nahin

The uploader on YT has superimposed Rafi’s song on the video link showing the opening/titles of the film. You can check with this video link : http://youtu.be/j72CwIAs_Q0 that this song is not there in the opening scenes.

The guy who uploaded this song superimposed the title sequences twice(adjusting according to the length of the song), that`s why I got suscpicious about the real picturisation.

Further another song from this movie also more or less have the same lyrical feel (“Zindagi mujhko dikhaa de raastaa, mujhko teri hasrathon ka vaasthaa”-again rafi on mehmood)

I am getting mixed up in between two songs of rafi- lamenting on fate.
Eventhough I have seen the movie twice, my memory didn`t registered the picturisation of this song.

In the movie, first Zeb rehman runs from her house, then meena kumari, then Mehmood , then gurudutt also leaves his house for some reason.Confusion galore. But for the good music and the impressive starcast saved the movie`s fate.

Atul ji,
The song belongs to this movie itself. The Geet Kosh listing plus the original record label definitely establishes this information.

I saw this film probably in the 70s, as a rerun or on Doordarshan, and cannot recollect firmly whether this song was included in the film or not. I do have the disc release of this film, and today, I scanned the entire film twice, but this song does not appear in the disc version. I cannot say for sure whether it is a deleted song from the original film or deleted from the disc release version.

The background music that runs at the time of titles display is the instrumental version of the title song ‘Yehi Hai Wo Saanjh Aur Saveraa’.

(So this is not a rail song. 🙂 )

So all this proves that this song is most likely a song deleted from the movie (either by the producer or the DVD/VCD company)

I remember hearing this song in the summer of ’64, when I was at the peak of my film songs mania, and I knew that this song was from a Guru Dutt movie. I loved it because of the lyrics – those were the days when I swooned over songs which were easy enough for me to scribble the lyrics while the song was being played, so much so that even today, I saw the lyrics and recognized the song! I never saw the movie, but this song used to be played on Vividh Bharati and on Radio Ceylon those days. Those were definitely the days of great songs.
