All you readers! Let us travel back to our childhood days, and relive the precious memories of the old days gone by. Bollywood has quite a lot of songs, rhymes and lullabies for little kids. These melodies not just appeal to the innocent children but are equally interesting for the elders as well.
Today we’ll read about some popular, fun Bollywood numbers for kids.
Re Mama Re Mama Re
Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri
Singer: Mohammed Rafi.
There are quite a many Bollywood films named ‘Andaz’, but the 1971 film starring Shammi Kapoor and Hema Malini can beat all the others, especially this mind-blowing composition sung by one of the greatest singers of our times ‘Mohammed Rafi’. In the film, Shammi is singing the harmonious melody for a cute little girl, as they hover around a toy train.
Lakdi Ki Kathi
Music: R.D Burman
Singers: Gauri Bapat, Gurpreet Kaur, Vanita Mishra
I think, over the years, almost all of us have grown up listening to ‘Lakdi Ki Kathi’. Most of us considered it to be our favourite childhood song. After all, this classic melody has been composed by R.D Burman. Gulzar’s comic lyrics and the mouth organ plus violin tunes helped make this track such a loved one. It was heard in the 1983 movie ‘Masoom’.
Nani Teri Morni
Music: Hemant Kumar
Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianvi
Singer: Ranu Mukherjee
‘Nani Teri Morni’ is still taught by music teachers in schools. It is from the 1960 film, directed by Satyen Bose, also named ‘Masoom’. Honey Irani, as the little cutie pie, who sings the song in the movie, steals the show with her sweet little antics and cute dance. The elders around her are left in awe of how talented such a small girl can be.
Fact: Ranu Mukherjee, the singer of this song, is Hemant Kumar’s daughter.
Hum Bhi Agar Bacche Hote
Lyrics: Shakeel Badayuni.
Singers: Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey.
‘Hum Bhi Agar Bache Hote’, is a brilliant song with picture perfect visuals, from the 1964 film ‘Door Ki Awaz’, starring Joy Mukherjee, Saira Banu, Pran and Johnny Walker. This track has ever since been rocking birthday parties. The booming trumpet sounds perfect for a Birthday Party. Mr Walker’s comic antics and the fun lyrics depicting the innocent lives lived by kids add the actual flavour to the song.
Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona
Music: R.D Burman
Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri
Singer: Kishore Kumar
‘Rona Kabhi Nahi Rona, Chahe Tut Jaye Koi Khilona, Khilona’, is a heart touching, rhythmic musical piece, made better with the beats of Congo and Drums. This song is originally from the 1972 film ‘Apna Desh’ starring Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz and Khanna simply slays it with his smashing acting skills.
Ta Ra Rum Pum
Music: Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
Singer: Shreya Ghoshal
The ‘Ta Ra Rum Pum’ title song is from the 2007 Indian sports drama film called ‘Tara Rum Pum’, starring Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherjee. The song video presents some incredibly amazing animated visuals, shown in a narrative storytelling style, which tells us the story of the 4 bears, ‘Ta’, ‘Ra’, ‘ ‘Rum’ and ‘Pum’, also used allegorically for their family of 4.
Chanda Hai Tu
Music: S.D Burman
Lyrics: Anand Bakshi
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
This mellifluous composition by S.D Burman is sure to capture your heart. Lata Mangeshkar’s serene and sweet voice exactly suits Sharmila Tagore as the mother’s voice. This all-time favourite children’s song is from the 1969 romantic drama film ‘Aradhana’, directed by Shakti Samanta. Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore played the lead roles and the film won the Filmfare Awards for the best film of the year.
