Khandan (1942) songs

Posted in Songs, tributes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 15, 2010 by vidursury

Here are the beautiful songs from Khandan (1942) – music by Master Ghulam Haider. Its most significant thing was that our dear Madam Noor Jehan was a heroine for the first time. The hero was Pran, who was later one of the most hated villians in films! Manorama was the vamp, Ghulam Mohammed, M Ajmal and Durga Mota played side roles. Songs were mostly by Noor Jehan, Shamshad Begum, Ghulam Haider, Naseem Akhtar and Umrao Zia Begum (Haider’s wife, a singer, and previously – in the 30s – an actress)

1. Ud Ja Ud Ja Panchi Panchi by Madam Noor Jehan and Ghulam Haider Ji, sung for Madam herself (how young she is!) and Pran

2. Hum Khelenge Aankh Micholi by Noor Jehan, for herself

3. Hamein Maar Gayi Re Teri Nazariya by Noor Jehan (on herself), Shamshad Begum and Umrao Zia Begum on others

4. Mere Liye Jahan Mein Chain Hai Na Qarar Hai by Noor Jehan, singing-acting

5. Tu Kaunsi Badli Mein Mere Chand Hai Aaja by singing-acting Noor Jehan

6. Chalo Paniya Bharan Ko Chalen by Shamshad Begum and Naseem Akhtar on Manorama and co

Very sadly, 4 (!) songs of Shamshad Begum were cut by the VCD manufaturers ūüė¶ Here is one song uploaded: Meri Ammi Ka Raaz Bhala:

I have the other 3 missing songs and will post them next.

Here is the lovely version of the Gujarati Narsi Bhajan “Vaishnava Jana To” by Kannada Kokila AKA nightingale of Karnataka Amirbai Karnataki. Gandhiji was himself a fan of the song.
