Here I come again. Seeing how few posts I make these days in the blog, I have become like a guest poster in the blog these days. 🙂

It is early morning right now and let me try to post at least one song for the day before I will be done for the day. Hopefully tomorrow (a sunday) is when I will have the full day to myself when I will try to make up for lost time.

Yesterday evening I came to know that Ravindra Jain is no more. I grew up listening to Hindi film music is 1970s. As someone who lived through that era, I can tell with first hand experience that the songs of “Chor Machaaye Shor”(1974) enjoyed unbelievable popularity during its time. The song Le jaayenge le jaayenge dilwaale dulhaniya le jaayenge went on to become an iconic song. This song inspired the title of another by now legendary movie namely “Dilwaane Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge”(1995).

I associate Ravindra Jain’s name mainly with Rajshree Productions movies. He seemed to be a constant fixture in Rajshree Productions movies of 1970s and early 1980s. All these movies, beginning with “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975) were musical bonanza.

The first movie of this production house that I watched was “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). The title of this movie was having an off putting effect on me and so I resisted watching this movie for as long as I could. But once I watched this movie, I was bowled over and I watched the movie over and over again. I watched the movie five times in all.

Like most viewers, I had watched the movie for Rameshwari, the debutant leading lady of the movie. Rameshwari had made such a favourable impression over viewers that she failed to live upto those high expectations in her subsequent movies.

The music of the movie was the high point of the movie. Three songs, including the two most popular songs of this movie, viz. Khushiyaan hi khushiyaan ho daaman me jiske and Le to aaye ho hamen sapno ke gaaon mein have already been discussed in the blog in the past.

Here is the fourth song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Hemlata. The song is picturised as a sort of grown up lullaby where Rameshwari is trying to put an insomniac Madan Puri to sleep, a task that the family physician has failed to accomplish. Ifthhikar, the family physician rightly concludes that healing people is not his cup of tea and he goes back to playing a police official in his next movie viz “Don”(1978). 🙂

Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director of this song.

Ravindra Jain’s music had an healing, therapeutic effect over the listeners. At least that is true for me. May his soul rest in peace.



Song-Purwaiyya ke jhonke aaye (Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye)(1977) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain


ho ho o
ho o o
hmm hmm hmm

purvaiya ke jhonke aaye
purvaiya ke jhonke aaye
chandan ban ki mahak bhi laaye
door vo nindiya raani muskaaye
moond lo naina to nainon mein aa jaaye
purvaiya ke jhonke aaye

neend ki dulhan
badi sharmeeli
ujiyaare mein na aaye
koi jo toke
koi kuchh bole
to raste se mud jaaye
deep bujha do to pal bhar mein aa jaaye
moond lo naina to nainon mein aa jaaye
purvaiya ke jhonke aaye

neend ki chinta
le ke jo jaage
usko neend na aaye
phool sa manva
le ke jo soye
usko hi neend sulaaye
chhod do chinta
to pal bhar mein aa jaaye
moond lo naina to nainon mein aa jaaye
purvaiya ke jhonke aaye
chandan ban ki mahak bhi laaye
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
moond lo naina to nainon mein aa jaaye

Nice post and a tribute to this legendary contributor of Hindi Cinema and fav of 70s. This movie is one of my fav of Rajshri Productions.
Movie has one song rendered by Ravindra Jain himself.



That song sung by Ravindra Jain has already been discussed in the past.


I wonder how I missed it!! Thanks Atulji for the update.



May his musical soul rest in eternal peace. He had wrote and composed a RaagaMaala for the unreleased film ‘Tansen’ in the voice of Yesudas. I had presented it under my ‘RaagaMaalika’ series

Please listen to this song as a tribute to him for his ability to compose in pure classical style as well as his superb writing talent.
