|Raj Kapoor with Ravindra Jain|
Sad news! Ravindra Jain passed away! He was not just music director but lyricist also. He was blind from vision, but had great inner sight.
Gave so many melodious films.Starting from 1973 to 2006, for almost 33 years he contributed to hindi film music. He worked mainly for low budge films but gave highly melodious songs. He mainly worked with not so famous singers at that time such as Yesudas, Hemlata, Jaspal Singh, Shailendra Singh etc.
Great actor, director and specially known for melodious music, Raj Kapoor tried Ravindra Jain after Shankar Jaikishan and Laxmikant Pyarelal. Pair worked fine and gave best music in Ram Teri Ganga Maili and Henna. Director Sooraj Badjatya also turned to Ravindra Jain after working with Ram-Laxman for three films. Actually Jain had worked for Rajshree production which belongs to Sooraj Badjatya. Sooraj and Jain worked for two films 'Vivah' and 'Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi'. However, 'Ek Vivah..' was not directed by Sooraj. Vivah music was very melodious.
His some of the best songs as per my choice are:
Sajna hai mujhe (Saudagar),
Le jayenge dilwale duhaniya le jayenge (Chor Machaye Shor)
Ghunghroo kee tarah,(Chor Machaye Shor),
Gori tera gaon bada pyara, (Chitchor)
Aaj se pahle, (Chitchor)

Ankhiyon ke jharokho se (Ankhiyon ke jharokho se)
Kai din se mujhe, (Ankhiyon ke jharokho se)
Bade badai na kare (Ankhiyon ke jharokho se)
Le to aaye ho humka (Dulhan wohi jo piya man bhaye),
O Goriya re (Naiyya)
Thande thande paani se (Pati Patni Aur Woh),
In ankho ko tum dekho (Sunayna),
