Bollywood Monsoon Melodies

Finally, it’s raining. The delayed monsoon is welcomed with extra excitement and I feel like dancing in the musical downpour. So-called culture and unkind age are restricting my actions and I’m turning my YouTube on for the ultimate Bollywood Monsoon Melodies. Music gives a meaningful direction to our otherwise mechanical life. Those who follow my blog seriously know very well that I’m a self-confessed Bollywood fan.
Bollywood music never fails to entertain people, specifically Indians, when they are in a mood to celebrate an occasion.

Bollywood monsoon songs
Bollywood monsoon songs

Rain. Rain is given loving philosophical definitions by poets. Man has always been fascinated by the freshening showers falling from the desperate sky. An early human with a beating heart must have uttered a couplet or two when rain blessed Earth with sparkling showers.
Such rhythmical segments (might have) created songs. Bollywood takes the song definition more seriously and to the another level. We have actors and actresses dancing and acting as the songs play in the background. Not to mention the amazing lip-sync; I couldn’t believe they’re not singing for themselves when I was a child. They actually sing or act, that’s secondary, my love for Bollywood songs comes first. Music lovers have a playlist for every occasion and I’m not an exception. When it rains, my fingers scroll through the monsoon songs and stop at the favourites list. Some of my all-time favourite monsoon songs are shared with you:)

P.S- Videos are available in the hyperlinks. Don’t miss the magic of Bollywood Monsoon Melodies:)

Pyaar Hua Ikraar Hua Hai, Pyaar se phir kyun darta hai dil..

The rain-song from the golden years of Bollywood starring Raj Kapoor and Nargis and the movie is ‘Shree 420′!

Ik Ladki bheegi bhagi si, Soti raton mein jaagi si..

Loved the chemistry between Kishore Kumar and Madhubala in this beautiful song from the movie ‘Chalti ka Naam Gaadi’!

Rimjhim Gire Saawan, Sulag sulag jaye mann..

Another magical rain song with Amitabh Bachchan and Moushami Chatterjee; the movie is ‘Manzil’!

Aaj Rapat Jaayen toh humein na uthayio, Humein jo uthayio to khud bhi phisal jayiyo..

You can’t miss the fun song starring Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil from the movie ‘Namak Halal’!

Ghanan Ghanan ghir ghir aaye badra..

The happiness of poor farmers reflects in this rain song from ‘Lagaan’; starring Mr perfectionist, Aamir Khan and team!

Kate nahi kat te yeh din yeh raat, Kehni thi tumko jo dil ki baat..

The romantic song where Anil Kapoor plays ‘Mr India’, the invisible man, created quite a stir. Sridevi looks stunning.

Lagi Aaj Sawan ki phir woh jhadi hai..

One more favorite of mine! Vinod Khanna and Juhi Chawla in ‘Chandni’!!

Tip Tip barsa paani, paani ne aag lagai..

One of the best song of the 90s. Watch Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tondon in ‘Mohra’!

Koi ladki hai, Jab woh hasti hai,
Baarish Hoti Hai Chhanar Chhanar Chhumchhum..

Aha! Who can forget the dances of lady beautiful Madhuri Dixit and handsome Shahrukh Khan in ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’!?

Rimjhim Rimjhim, Rumjhum Rumjhum. Bheegi Bheegi rut mein tum hum hum tum..

Passionate rain Melody starring Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala from the movie ‘1942, A Love Story’!

Barso re megha barso

Doe-eyed Aishwarya Rai dances like waves of the ocean. The movie wasGuru’, based on the life of Dhirubhai Ambani.

Yeh mausam ki baarish

I’m in love with this song ‘Yeh mausam ki baarish, yeh baarish ka paani’ from the movie ‘Half Girlfriend’. The song is still present in my phone as one of the favourites.
