Occupations Music director

Ravi was born in Delhi on March 3, 1926. He had no formal training in classical music; instead he learned music from listening to his father sing bhajans. He taught himself to play harmonium and other classical instruments and worked as an electrician to support his family. In 1950 he decided to shift to Bombay and become a professional singer. At first Ravi was homeless, living on the streets and sleeping in Malad railway station at night. In 1952, he was discovered by Hemant Kumar who hired him to sing backing vocals in Vande Mataram from the film Anand Math.[1] Ravi gave several hit songs and received Filmfare nominations for these films: Chaudhvin Ka Chand (1960), Do Badan (1966), Humraaz (1967), Ankhen (1968), and Nikaah (1982). He won Filmfare awards for Gharana (1961) and Khandaan (1965).[2] His other successful films include Waqt, Neel Kamal and Gumraah. His songs Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai, Babul ki duyaen leti ja and Doli chadh ke dulhan sasural chali became very popular in wedding celebrations. He was one of the music directors who shaped the career of Asha Bhosle with songs like Tora man darpan. He was also instrumental in making Mahendra Kapoor a popular singer in Bollywood. After a successful career in Hindi films during the 1950s and 1960s, he took a long break after 1970 till 1982. In 1982, he gave music for the Hindi film Nikaah, and one of the film's songs Dil ke armaan aansooyon main beh gaye sung by Salma Agha won her the Filmfare Best Female Playback Award.

In the 1980s, he made a comeback as a music director in Malayalam (and some Hindi) films as Bombay Ravi. During 1986, the Malayalam director Hariharan convinced him to . The first movie was Panchagni. The songs Saagarangale and Aa raatri maanju poyi (sung by Yesudas and Chitra) were hits. That same year, Hariharan's Nakhakshathangal also came out and Chithra won her second National Award for the song Manjalprasaadavum from the same film. All the songs from the Malayalam movie Vaisali released in 1989 were super hits and Chithra won her third National Award for the song "Indupushpam Choodi Nilkum" from the same film. Ravi has composed for many films produced by South Indian banners: Ghoonghat, Gharana Grihasti, Aurat, Samaj ko badal dalo (Gemini), Meherban, Do Kaliyan (AVM), Bharosa, Khandaan (Vasu Films).

aankhen hain jaise meay ke payaale bhare hue
masti hai jis me pyaar ki tum, vo sharaab ho
chaudahavin ka chaand ho...........

chehara hai jaise jheel me khilata hua kanval
ya zindagi ke saaj pe chhedi hui gazal
jaane bahaar tum kisi shaayar ka khwaab ho
chaudahavin ka chaand ho.............

honthon pe khelati hain tabassum ki bijaliyaan
sajade tumhaari raah men karati hain kehkashaan
duniya-e-husn-o-ishq ka tum hi shabaab ho
chaudahavin ka chaand ho............

chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono
chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

na mai tumse koi ummid rakhu, dilnavaji ki
na tum meri taraf dekho, galat andaz nazro se
na mere dil ki dhadkan ladkhadaye, meri bato me
na jahir ho tumhari kashmkash ka, raz nazro se
chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono
chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

tumhe bhi koi uljhan, rokti hai peshkadmi se
mujhe bhi log kehte hain, ki ye jalve paraye hai
mere hamrah bhi rusvaiya hai, mere majhi ki
mere hamrah bhi rusvaiya hai, mere majhi ki
tumhare sath bhi, gujri hui rato ke saye hai
chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono
chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

tarruf rog ho jae, to usko bhulna behtar
talluk bojh ban jae, to usko todna achchha
woh afsana jise anjam tak, lana na ho mumkin
woh afsana jise anjam tak, lana na ho mumkin
use ek khubsurat mod dekar, chhodna achchha
chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono
chalo ek bar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

Aage bhi jaane na tu…

Anjaane saayo ka raaho mein dera hai
Andekhi baaho ne ham sabko ghera hai
Ye pal ujaala hai baaqi andhera hai
Ye pal gawaana na ye pal hi tera hai
Jeene waale soch le yahi waqt hai kar le puri aarzoo
Aage bhi ...

Is pal ke jalwo ne mehfil sawaari hai
Is pal ki garmi ne dhadkan ubhaari hai
Is pal ke hone se duniya hamaari hai
Ye pal jo dekho to sadiyo pe bhaari hai
Jeene waale soch le yahi waqt hai kar le purii aarzoo
Aage bhi ...

Is pal ke saaye mein apna thhikaana hai
Is pal ke aage hi har shae fasaana hai
Kal kisne dekha hai kal kisne jaana hai
Is pal se paayega jo tujhko paana hai
Jeene waale soch le yahi waqt hai kar le puri aarzoo
Aage bhi ...
