Bollywood songs form a huge part of Indians lives. The craze for Bollywood songs becomes visible right from when the baby is in the cradle. My affair with Bollywood dates back to the day I landed on planet Earth. Bollywood songs sneaked into my mom’s lullabies from the corners of the Record Player, my father’s inseparable companion. As I opened my eyes to explore the world, larger than life Bollywood movies miraculously tampered with my thoughts. Growing up with Bollywood was like a dream I didn’t want to be woken up from.
I’m sure your mothers might have sung you lullabies from the Bollywood movies when you were young. If you are a Bollywood fan, there’s a probability that those similar lullabies have a special place in the bedtime of your children.
Did you say yes? Hehe, I was right!:)
A lullaby is a soothing song that’s sung to or played for children to help them sleep. Sometimes the lullabies are sung or played to pass on cultural values and heritage.
I’m sharing some of my favourite lullabies from Bollywood movies. You will notice that the lullabies never grow old. Those from the old movies sound as fresh as from the new ones. Play my list and share your views in the comments section.
Naani Teri Morni Ko Mor Le Gaye
The 1960s song ‘Naani Teri Morni Ko Mor Le Gaye’ is beautifully sung by Ranu Mukherjee, daughter of legendary Music Director Hemant Kumar. You can’t miss the lovely acting skills of little Honey Irani. Movie : Masoom

Sung by Asha Bhosle, this 1955 lullaby is sung even today by mothers. Do you remember the lyrics?:)

This is from the 1983 movie Masoom. You can see young Urmila Matondkar and Jugal Hansraj in the song. Though not a lullaby, it’s popular among kids and can be sung during bedtime.
