Badnaseebi ka gila ae dil e naashaad na kar

Posted on: July 16, 2012


This article is written by Shekhar Gupta, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Directed by M.L. Anand, Bewefa (1952) was a Raj Kapoor-Nargis-Ashok Kumar love triangle. Both versions of its iconic song “Dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa” rendered separately by Talat Mahmood and Lata Mangeshkar are already on this blog. Video clips of its most others numbers too are on YouTube. But the video clip of a superlative Lata number Badnaseebi kaa gilaa ai dil-e-naashaad na kar has gone missing. I am not sure if this number was only recorded but not included in the movie itself. But if it was shot, it would be reasonable to assume that it was on Nargis herself exhorting herself to desist lamenting her ill-fate.

This poignantly sweet Lata number, penned by Sarshar Sailani was, like the other Bewafa numbers, also tuned by A.R. Qureshi. A.R. Qureshi later came to greater fame as tabla maestro Ustad Alla Rakha Khan (the late father of the present day tabla-nawaaz Ustad Zakir Hussain) and was a frequent accompanist of the sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar in the latter’s hey-days in the 1960s and 70s.


Song –Badnaseebi kaa gilaa ai dil-e-naashaad na kar (Bewafa)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-A R Qureshi

Lyrics

badnaseebi kaa gilaa
badnaseebi kaa gilaa
ai dil-e-naashaad na kar
haay fariyaad na kar
badnaseebi kaa gilaa
badnaseebi kaa gilaa
ai dil-e-naashaad na kar
haay fariyaad na kar

har ghadi aish kaa saamaan kahaan rehtaa hai
har ghadi aish kaa saamaan kahaan rehtaa hai
zindagi bhar koi mehmaan kahaan rehtaa hai
gham badi cheez hai
gham badi cheez hai
is cheez ko barbaad na kar
haay fariyaad na kar
badnaseebi kaa gilaa
ai dil-e-naashaad na kar
haay fariyaad na kar

rone waale tere rone pe hansi aati hai
rone waale tere rone pe hansi aati hai
jo ghadi beet gayi wo bhi kabhi aati hai
jab wo din aana nahin
jab wo din aana nahin,
tab se to unhen yaad na kar
badnaseeibi kaa gilaa
ai dil-e-naashaad na kar
haay fariyaad na kar

ye teraa ashq bahaanaa,
kabhi aur aahen bharnaa
aahen bharnaa
pyaar ki reet nahin,
pyaar ko rusvaa karnaa
rusavaa karnaa
ghut ke mar jaa
ghut ke mar jaa,
magar ai dil kabhi fariyaad na kar
haay fariyaad na kar
badnaseebi kaa gilaa
ai dil-e-naashaad na kar
haay fariyaad na kar
