7th March’2022 was the tenth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of music director Ravi (3 March 1926 – 7 March 2012).

Ravi has given us many memorable, iconic, and immortal songs Hindi movies which will be listened as long as HFM is discussed on this planet-earth. Among the many successful associations Ravi had the most talked about is his association with lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi.

Sahir Ludhianvi was born on 8th March 1921 (08.03.1921 – 25.10.1980) and today is his 101st birth anniversary.

Sahir and Ravi worked together in as many as nineteen movies as per the details given here :-

Total: – 129 128 136

We can see from the above table that Sahir and Ravi, during their association had given us more than one hundred songs.

While almost all songs of their collaboration have been posted on the blog, we have one song left from ‘Gumraah-1963’ and three songs from the movie ‘Chingaari-1989’.

As a tribute to both Sahir Ludhianvi and music director Ravi I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Chingaari-1989’.

“Chingaari” (from 1970s) released in 1989’ was directed by Ram Maheshwary for ‘Kalpanalok, Bombay’.

It was produced by Pannalal Maheshwary.

(The same production house and directorial team who had given us movies like ‘Kaajal’, ‘Neelkamal’ etc.)

It had Sanjay, Leena Chandavarkar, Pran, Shatrughan Sinha, Rehman, Padma Khanna, Ramesh Deo, Durga Khote, Jagirdar, David and Junior Mehmood.

They were supported by Tiwari, Anjali Kadam, Jairaj, Jankidas, and Guest Artiste Suresh.
Leela Mishra, Jagdish Raj, Savita, Rajrani, Baby Rubena, Madhu Mehta, Shinde, Sophia also included the supporting cast in this movie.

Story Idea of this movie was by Gulshan Nanda, and screenplay was written by Benoy Chatterjee.
Dialogues of this movie were written by Rajinder Singh Bedi. Editing of this movie was done by D.N. Pai.

This movie had seven songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and music was composed by music director Ravi.

Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey and Usha Mangeshkar (as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980)) had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs this movie had (I am including this as the previous song posts of this movie doesn’t mention these details).

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 O praani re … teri karam kahaani * Manna Dey 27.03.2015
02 Wah dekh udey kaak chadhhi jhaag bhare jaam Asha Bhonsle
03 Main kaun hoon main kya hoon itna to kabhi poochho Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor
04 Tu bol na bol bas rah mere kol Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor 03.01.2014
05 Pighli aag se saagar bhar le Asha Bhonsle
06 Har waqt tere husn ka hota hai samaa aur Mahendra Kapoor 14.07.2013
07 Banwaari re, o banwaari re, meri baari re…. Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar 04.03.2021

*(multiple version song)

Out of the seven songs in this movie four songs (one multiple version song) have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor and on screen it is lip synced by Leena Chandavarkar and Sanjay respectively. This song may sound a very simple song to listen, however it has very meaningful lyrics in the context of the movie. The heroine of the movie Leena Chandavarkar has fallen in love with Police Inspector Sanjay. However, she has a troubled past and that is why the apprehensions in her mind whether the man will accept her with her past?
But as expected in Sahir’s poetry the firm assurance comes from the hero when he says that ‘Tum jo bhi ho meri ho, Ab aur naa kuchh socho’…

(In the movie this song is a dream sequence of Leena Chandavarkar).

Let us now listen to this beautiful song …

The audio version contains three stanza with the second male stanza which is missing from the video link available …

Lyrics

Main kaun hoon
Main kya hoon
Itnaa to kabhi poochho/em>

Main kaun hoon
Main kya hoon
Itnaa to kabhi poochho
Tum jo bhi ho meri ho
Ab aur naa kuchh socho

Main kaun hoon
Main kya hoon
Itnaa to kabhi poochho
Tum jo bhi ho meri ho
Ab aur naa kuchh socho

Uthhkar meri palkon ko
Jhuknaa hi na pad jaaye
Uthhkar meri palkon ko
Jhuknaa hi na pad jaaye
Do chaar kadam chal kar
Ruknaa hi na pad jaaye
Kya soch ke tanhaa hoon
Itnaa to kabhi poochho
Tum jo bhi ho meri ho
Ab aur naa kuchh socho

Pehchaani huyi shai ko
Pehchaan ke kya lenge
Pehchaani huyi shai ko
Pehchaan ke kya lenge
Jab maan liya tumko
Phir jaan ke kya lenge ae ae
Jab maan liya tumko
Phir jaan ke kya lenge
Tum jaan e tamanna ho
Ab aur naa kuchh socho

Main kaun hoon
Main kya hoon
Itnaa to kabhi poochho
Tum jo bhi ho meri ho
Ab aur naa kuchh socho

Aa
ahaa haa haa aa

O ho o ho ho ho o
Laa laa laa laa laa laa

Maanaa ke mujhe tumne
Aankhon mein basaaya hai
Maanaa ke mujhe tumne
Aankhon mein basaaya hai
Jaisi bhi hoon
Jo bhi hoon
Seene se lagaaya hai
Patthhar hoon ke heeraa hoon
Itnaa to kabhi poochho
Tum jo bhi ho meri ho
Ab aur naa kuchh socho

Main kaun hoon
Main kya hoon
Itnaa to kabhi poochho
Tum jo bhi ho meri ho
Ab aur naa kuchh socho

Main kaun hoon
Main kya hoon
