“Laal Haweli”(1944) was directed by K B Lal for Bombay Cinetone, Bombay. The movie had Surendra, Noorjahaan, Ulhas, Baby Meena (later known as Meena Kumari), Maya Bannerji, Yaakoob, Kanhaiyalal, Brijrani, Vatsala Kumthekar, Badri Prasad, Ghori, Alaknanda etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it according to HDFK. As many as seven songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

It is seen that the details of singers are not mentioned in HFGK for four songs. Luckily, video of the movie is available so we can see who have sung which song.

Here is the song “gaa re panchhi gaa” from the movie. This is the first song listed under the movie in HFGK. Details of singers are not mentioned. As one can listen to the song and watch the video, one can see that the song is initially sung by a couple of unknown femle voices, obe unknown male voice and chorus.

Then one hits the jackpot. One can notice the unmistakable voice of Noorjahaan, followed by her unmistakable face as well. Yes, it is Noorjahaan singing and acting in this song. she is also joined by Surendra subsequently in singing and acting in this song.

Some time back, our inhouse Noorjahaan fan Mr Bharat Upadhyay had posted a series of Noorjahaan songs in the blog. He had included a few songs from “Laal Haweli” (1944) as well as had then declared that all Noorjahaan songs from Hindi movies were covered. Here is another Noorjahaan (and Surendra) song to add to the tally ! 🙂

Shams Lucknowi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Meer Sahab.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other unknown singers in the song.


Song-Gaa re panchhi gaa (Laal Haweli)(1944) Singers-Unknown female voice 1, unknown male voice, unknown female voice 2, Noorjahaan, Surendra, Lyrics-Shams Lucknowi, MD-Meer Sahab

Lyrics

…leke aa
aa aa aa
aaa aa
gaa re panchhi ga
gaa re panchhi ga
gaa re panchhi ga

kaise panchhi geet sunaaye
kaise panchhi geet sunaaye
kaise panchhi geet sunaaye
saajan ab jaa tu le ke aa
saajan ab jaa tu le ke aa

jaa tu le ke aa
aa
aa
gaa re panchhi ga

mere kuyen ka paani
boodha pi le to aaye jawaani
pee le na pachhta
pee le na pachhta

aa aa
aa aa
gaa re panchhi ga
gaa re panchhi ga

aaa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
preet ki saajan nayi nagariya
preet ki saajan nayi nagariya
naya musaafir kathin dagariya
naya musaafir kathin dagariya
aa aa

hamko raah dikha aa
hamko raah dikha
aa
aa

gaa re panchhi ga
aa aa
aa aa
gaa re panchhi ga
gaa re panchhi ga

aa aa aa
aa aa aa

Thanks from your known Noorjehan fan. Is ‘Lal Haveli’ video available on internet? I would love to see it.

Yes it is available.

After waching the video repeatedly, sorry to say I could not see neither hear Noorjehan and Surendra anywhere. The stern face suited person in Ullhas, not Surendra. I will not add this song to my almost complete list of Hindustani Noorjehan.

What about the lady singing in the last stanza ? (aa aa aa preet ki saajan nayi nagariya ) Is she not Noorjahaan ?

Atul ji,

The confusion is because while the title of the song is ‘gaa re panchhi gaa’, the video clip is that of ‘ bhaiyya hamaaro ji aayi hai behanen’.

Thanks for pointing it out. Now I have provided the correct link.

After seeing the correct song clip I stand corrected. These are Noorjehan and Surendra of course. I had seen ‘Bhaiyya hamoro’ clip only while commenting. Thanks Atulbhai for inserting the right clip.

Mir Sahib also penned in
Zeenat (1945)
Sikandar (1941)
Phir Milenge (1942)
Pattharon Ka Saudagar (1944)
