Summary: All this film shares with Mehboob Khan’s Taqdeer (1943) is its title. The plot concerns a music teacher who leaves wife and children to try to earn money abroad. When his wife hears that her husband’s ship has been wrecked, she tries to make ends meet by marrying a rich, villainous mine owner. Later, the husband, who suffers from amnesia, returns and the nasty industrialist tries to kill him. In the end, the villain gets killed and the musician’s family is reunited. The film’s main interest resides in its nostalgic music track.
