Ban ban ke mit gayin hain taqdeer ki lakeeren

Posted on: February 26, 2012

“Gauna” (1950) is an obscure movie by now. This movie was a Jagat Pictures Production. It was directed by Amiya Chakravarty. Star cast of the movie had names like Usha Kiran, Anoop Kumar, Purnima, S. Nazir, Kesari, Shailendra, Indumati, Wasti etc it.

Here is a rare and special song from this movie. This must be one of the few songs where one can hear the voices of Shamshad Begam, Rafi and Geeta Dutt. This is a three stanza song and the three singers get one stanza each to sing in that order. It is clear that the song is picturised on two ladies and one gentleman, but only the audio is available and so it is difficult to guess who these actors could be. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this matter.

Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Song-Ban ban ke mit gayeen hain taqdeer ki lakeeren (Gauna)(1950) Singers-Rafi, Shamshad Begam, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram


mujhse ye keh rahi hain
mujhse ye keh rahi hain
taqdeer ki lakeeren
ban ban ke mit gayi hain
taqdeer ki lakeeren
ban ban ke mit gayi hain

wo din hai yaad mujhko
main hosh de chuki thhi
dulha koi bana thha
dulhan koi bani thhi
aankhen khuli to dekha
dulhan ye keh rahi thhi
ban ban ke mit gayi hain
ban ban ke mit gayi hain
mujhse ye keh rahi hain
taqdeer ki lakeeren
ban ban ke mit gayi hain

hai har taraf andhera
kaise tujhe bulaaoon
chalti hai gham ki aandhi
kaise diya jalaaoon
ab tu mujhe bhula de
aur main tujhe bhula doon
badlengi ab na sajni
badlengi ab na sajni
taqdeer ki lakeeren
ban ban ke mit gayin hain
taqdeer ki lakeeren
badlengi ab na sajni

sun ek baat meri
aansoo bahaane waale
khud jal ke doosron ko
toone diye ujaale
tu bhi hansega ek din
mujhko hansaane waale
mit mit ke phir banengi
mit mit ke phir banengi
taqdeer ki lakeeren
mujhse ye keh rahi hain
taqdeer ki lakeeren
mit mit ke phir banengi

Atul ji,
What a coincidence that just now I talked of the competetion between Gyan Mukherjee and Amiya Chakravarty and the songs of these 2 films,Gauna and Leela are posted,one after another.
GAUNA-50 was answer of A.Chakra to Gyan Mukherjee,because the stories of both films were same( as in the past also Kismat and Basant,Badal and Shamsher and sitaron se aagey and Kathputali were made on same stories by these two stalwarts,sometimes using the same Heroines also).
This was a Jagat Films production Directed by Amiya Chakravarty.
Story and s/play were by Ali sagheer usmani and Devi Sharan and dialogues were by Vrajendra Gaud.
The cast was as mentioned in the post.


Change of word in the mukhdaa :

mujhse ye keh rahi hain
“tasveer” ki lakeeren

Shamshad Begum is singing it as ‘tasveer’ ki lakeeren” once. Everywhere else it is ‘taqdeer ki lakeeren’.
