I had posted some songs from Ravikant Nagaich’s Bollywood movies from the 1970s on his death anniversary, last month. Today, I have selected some songs from Ravikant Nagaich’s 1960s color works.
Before going to the list, let’s have a look at some more information about the filmmaker. Ravikant Nagaich was 1931-born in a Brahmin family at Atrauli, UP, India. He began his career as a cinematographer for Telugu movies. N T Rama Rao’s Sri Seetha Rama Kalyanam (1961) was his debut movie.
His Farz (1967) saw him step into Bollywood as a director. Farz (1967) was a low-budget James Bond-inspired thriller and a surprise hit helping not only the debutante director but also the movie’s lead pair – Babita and Jeetendra. Ravikant Nagaich repeated similar themes even in his later movies like Keemat (1973), Raksha (1981) and The Gold Medal (1984).
