Monsoon and Bollywood together weave magical moments. Bollywood just knows how to capture the marvels of monsoon. Romance, fun or thrill, the rain songs of Hindi cinema is something we can never miss out.
Celebrating this indelible bond of monsoon and Bollywood, here’s a list of songs we love.
Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si – Chalti ka Naam Gadi
Never before has a mechanic looked so charming. This playful song from Chalti ka Naam Gadi is unforgettable. Madhubala as the pretty diver and Kishore Kumar as a flirtatious mechanic creates magic on the silver screen. Flirting with a stranger? Only if you are as smooth as Kishore Kumar.
Bheegi bheegi raaton mein – Ajnabee
Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman’s rendezvous on the terrace sparks with passion and sweet nothings. Composed by RD Burman and sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar, this number from Ajnabee sets the right mood.
Koi Ladka Hai – Dil toh Pagal hai
A peppy and happy song! The bubbly Madhuri Dixit and forever-charming Shahrukh Khan rock the dance floor in this song. Fun, frolic and mirth… isn’t monsoon all about that?
Tip Tip Barsa Pani – Mohra
Addictive, groovy and simply irresistible! Well, you can never go wrong with this song. Want to woo someone special this monsoon? Take lessons from the ravishing Raveena Tandon. The chemistry between Raveena and Akshay is just too hot to handle.
Sason Ko Sason Mein – Hum Tum
Monsoon spells love and passion. And this track from Hum Tum featuring Rani Mukerjee and Saif Ali Khan beautifully creates a lovey-dovey mood. Sung by Alka Yagnik and Babul Supriyo the song blends in with perfect lyrics and harmony.
Barso Re – Guru
It is said that you should soak in the first shower of the season. And Aishwarya Rai seems to be doing it absolutely right. The Joy of first shower! Dulcet and exhilarating. Shreya Ghosal’s voice is as fresh as the first shower of the season. Love it.
Woh Lamhe – Zeher
Love brings heartbreak. Heartbreak brings memories. A strange fact about monsoon is that, if it can make you happy… it can also make you emotional. Performed by Atif Aslam, this track from Zeher expresses feelings of lost love and sweet memories.
Zoobi Doobi – 3 Idiots
Lazy rainy afternoon is a perfect time to daydream. Dance, jump and fly… these rain-induced daydreams has no limits. Even Kareena couldn’t control it. A fun number from 3 Idiots. Go swing and groove and as Aamir Khan said, “Agar apko kisi se pyaar ho gaya, aap par baarish zaroor hogi.” Just be ready.
Love monsoon. Love the rains!
