Mohd Rafi, Shakeel and Ravi

Ravi Sharma as all are aware is popularly known as RAVI by the fraternity of our Film Industry. A very shy & introvert personality of his caliber had started his early career as a composer with the film titled Vachan (1955) which also happened to be the debut film of the Jubilee star Rajendra Kumar. Incidentally Ravi Saabs small dwelling bungalow in Santacruz (West) is also named after his first film titled Vachan.
  

Today I have presented a small list of the classic songs composed by him for our Beloved King of Melody – Rafi Saab and those being my own favourites.

Mohammed Rafi sings for Ravi (Sharma) – Tujhko Pukare Mera Pyaar

In the later years of his career Ravi joined the B R Chopra camp and gave evergreen hits. He was also instrumental in introducing Rafi Saabs disciple Mahendra Kapoor in the classic film Gumrah. He was associated with the B R Chopra camp for several years & in the vicinity composed music for almost all their films.

    Dear Manasji,
    Refer comment 18
    What a “fantastic comment”.it is 100% correct.we could live when
    rafi saab was alive.it is one of the luckiest thing in our life.

  2. Manas Mukhopadhyay says:

    From Saigal to Sonu Nigam (except Rafi saab) and from Nurjahan to Sreya Ghosal, all had/have god gifted voice, but Rafi saab’s voice was God’s own voice. A singer like Rafi saab comes once in 1000 years and we are very lucky that we have got him in our life time.

  6. to post 12 .the role was acted by bagwan ,the details of it is forgotten because 35 years passed after that,, congradulation to raviji who had performed the music,ofcourse ravi had fully utilised the abilities of rafi in all aspects.he had given sad songs (babul ki dua..filim neel kamal)qawali (miltehi nazer ..filim ustdom ki’ ustad) gazal (title song of chaud winka chand) classic songs in the filim kajal and happy songs like neel gagan per udthe filim qandhan.

    The audio quality of the clip is pretty good.
    And here’s a few personal favorites of mine:

    What expression of despair.

    Sublime work of art.

    Another gem.

  8. i admit too that this song mai kaise aaja bbeebi..very sarcastic & humorous one.please mention me who had acted that part in the filim dever babi ., is it joney walker? to none other than rafi sab had sung that typical song such a superb way.

  9. sukhjit singh makkar says:

    ANOTHER GREAT NUGGET FROM THESE TWO GREATSWAS THAT SOFT SAD NUMBER – JITNI LIKHI THI MUQADDAR MEIN HAM UTNI PEE CHUKE _FROM NAI ROSHNI AND PICTURISED ON THE GREAT RAAJ KUMAR.
    THE DEPTHS OF DESPAIR AND THE DRUNKEN STUPOR IN WHICH THE SONG IS SUNG IS A MARVEL OF VOICE CONTROL AND FEELINGS.
    THERE IS A SPECIAL GRAINY TEXTURE TO THE VOICE IN THIS SONG WHICH MAKES IT SOUND LIKE RAAJ KUMAR HIMSELF SINGING.
    ” AI ZAMANE AB NA AANA,
    HAMKO SMAJHANE KABHI,
    SABKI SUNLI, APNI KAHLI,
    HONTH APNE SEE CHUKE,
    ABTO DIN MARNE KE HAIN,
    JEENA THE JITNA, JI CHUKE”.
    THANK YOU RAFI SAAB, RAVI JI AND THANK YOU GOD.

  10. pmc thangal says:

    have heard the comic song in the filim dever babi? i had heard this from radio ceylon while’ it was functioning clearly. now i donot know exactly the lines. it is some what like mai kaise aaja beebeere ..theri yadmai hogai teebee..rafi sab sung it at the age of 25 or 30 in the voice of an old man of 70. i often wonder why our vivid bharaathi or tv station not played this song.

  11. Mohammed Irfan says:

    A Nice Article Bijoor ji,Also one more song (a duet with Lata that I would like to add is the one from Hare kaanch ki chudiyan – Ek mahal ho sapno ka). Also the title song of ‘Aankhein’.It is one of the toughest songs composed IMHO.

    Sukhjit Singh Makkar sahib what a song you have mentioned ‘ KOI MUJSE POOCHE KE TUM MERE KYA HO’ .The first time I heard this song I was just mesmerised by Rafisaab’s rendition.How can one apply so much feel to the song is the question that arises on listening to it and goodness has it that we have 2 versions.One is the romantic and the other one that has hatred and Rafisaabs mastery over the renditions cannot be described in words.

    Regards.

  12. Dr. Khaja Aliuddin says:

    Janab Sukhjit Singh Makkar sahib,
    I, 100% agree with you. This combo of Rafi and ravi is marvelous. Is gane me Rafi Sahab ki “Gayeki” bade ghazab ki hai. After all he is the “Awaz ka Badshah”.
    With regards to all rafi lovers,
    Long live rafi sahab,
    Dr. Khaja Aliuddin

  13. sukhjit singh makkar says:

    Rafi saab and Ravi ji WERE PROBABLY THE DEADLIEST COMBINATION AFTER Rafi Saab and Burman Da..
    one of Rafi Saab’s greatest ever renderings is from Yeh raaste Hain Pyar KE and the song is _ KOI MUJSE POOCHE KE TUM MERE KYA HO-.
    It is a song which captures all the facets of a relationship – from the first loving caress of soft love, to the passion and then when it reaches the betrayel of love it leaves a burning arrow through your soul and wrenches you and shakes you with – KOI MUJSE POOCHE KE TU MERE KYA HO, WAFAA JISNE LOOTI WOH BEFAWA HO – TUM BEWAFA HO . THE CRESCENDO JUST KILLS YOU.
    Hear it and you would be shocked into disbelief at its greatness.

  15. Mahender says:

    This is a good article, but I do not understand why stalwarts like B R Chopra and Yash Chopra did not have Rafi songs in their movies.

  16. unknow says:

    Ravi was the best who used Mahendra Kapoor as I think and he was almost Mohd Rafi fan,once on TV Ravi said when ever there is marriage they play my songs and that is my good luck that these songs sung by Mohd rafi.

  17. Anmol Singh says:

    Good Write Up indeed.

    The greatest quality about Ravi is his similicity, which is follows till date. He always composed quality music maximum in the 1960s. As music standards started falling down in 70s and 80s there were very few exceptions composed by Ravi. The Ravi-Rafi combo have composed landmark musical hits.

  18. arghya says:

    Surprisingly, don;t see the Waqt title song” waqt se din aur raat”.. Reportedly, Ravi underwent a dispute with B R Chopra to make Rafisaab sing this song.. This is a true gem..
