Chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen

Posted on: August 27, 2011


There have been at least two movies called “Khaandaan”. One of them was released in 1965 and it had Sunil Dutt and Nutan in lead roles. But there was another movie of the same name that was released as far back as 1942.

This 1942 movie was directed by Shaukat Hussain Rizvi. This movie had actors like Noor Jehan, Pran, Ghulam Mohammed, Manorama, M. Ajmal and others in it. It was in this movie that Noorjahaan acted as the heroine for the first time in her career.

“Khandaan” (1942) was a musical blockbuster and its music had enthralled the music lovers of those days.

Here is a song from this movie. This song is a stage song, where a few ladies, holding earthen pot (matka) on their heads, sing about going to the local panghat (water hole) to fill up water. The ladies are dressed up like they are going to a party, and not to a panghat, but then that is how it is in Hindi movies and now adays in Indian TV soap operas too, where they are shown dressed up in their jewellery even when they are sleeping.

The song is sung by Shamshad Begam and Naseem Akhtar. D N Madok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Haider. Ghulam Haider in fact came to limelight as a music director with this movie.

And who is the leading lady in the picturisation, who is seen lip syncing in Shamshad Begam’s voice ? Take a closer look. The lady, who looks like Poonam Dhillon (albeit four decades earlier) is none other than Manorama, who later on became well known for playing scheming aunt / brothel owner etc. She was pretty in her younger days, and how quickly she lost her good looks. Of course that is another matter altogether.

Here is this forgotten gem from “Khandaan” (1942). Listening to this song and watching the picturisation is like going back in time and watch our past as it was seven decades ago. What a nice and wonderful song !


Song-Chalo paniyaan bharan ko chalen (Khaandaan) (1942) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Naseem Akhtar, Lyrics- D N Madhok, MD-Ghulam Haider

Lyrics

chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
sakhi hilmil ke
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
sakhi hilmil ke
chalo paniyaa

more sar pe sohe hai matki
more sar pe sohe hai matki
tum raani ho is panghat ki
tum raani ho is panghat ki
ab karo kisi pe waar
ab karo kisi pe waar
sakhi hilmil ke
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
sakhi hilmil ke
chalo paniyaa

tore nainon mein kajraa sohe
tore nainon mein kajraa sohe
tore haathon ka gazra mohe
tore haathon ka gazra mohe
zaraa aankhen to kar lo chaar
zaraa aankhen to kar lo chaar
sakhi hilmil ke
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
sakhi hilmil ke
chalo paniyaa

ik lagn lagi hai man mein
ik lagn lagi hai man mein
kuchh hosh nahin hai tan mein
kuchh hosh nahin hai tan mein
kar banwaa na lenge taar
kar banwaa na lenge taar
maroon jal jal ke
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
chalo paniyaa
chalo paniyaa bharan ko chalen
sakhi hilmil ke
chalo paniyaa

Atul ji,
KHANDAAN was made in 1942,1955,1965 and 1979 also.
KHANDAAN(1942),basically was a movie to lauch Noorjehan as a Heroine and a singing sensation.The director Shaukat Hussain Rizvi later married Noorjehan before going to Pakistan.
In Pakistan,she was launched by him in a Punjabi film ‘Chenn We’in which Noorjehan also directed the movie,,thus Rizvi made her the First Lady Director of Pakistan.
In Khandaan,as the story goes,she had 2 roles.In one role,she is killed and in the other role she is about to be killed,both times by her (different )husbands.She had 2 Heros,one of them being PRAN.
