Can you remember a few Bollywood songs with the sound of whistles, bells and yodeling voices? These happy sounds express a person’s cheerful mood. Hindi Films especially old films have plenty of songs where the carefree and chirpy hero or heroine is found singing a song riding on a bicycle or a car. The songs either begin with the sound of bells ringing, a lilting whistle or rounds of yodeling throughout the song.
Let us read about a few such songs
Chaand Sifaarish Jo Karta Hamari
Music: Jatin- Lalit
Lyrics: Prasoon Joshi
Singers: Shaan, Kailash Kher
‘Chaand Sifarish Jo Karta Hamari, Deta Woh Tumko Bata’ is a beautiful serenade sung by Amir Khan or Rehan Qadri for Kajol or Zooni Ali Beg in the 2006 romantic drama thriller film ‘Fanaa’ directed by Kunal Kohli & produced by Yash Raj Films. This smooth flowing melody has a rhythmic whistling in between the song. As a listener, you’d surely love to imitate and whistle back. Amir and Kajol’s perfect chemistry and the catchy/enjoyable music is a perfect stress buster.
Yeh Shaam Mastani
Music: Rahul Dev Burman
Lyrics: Anand Bakshi
Singers: Kishore Kumar
This all-time favourite Bollywood melody is from the Box office successful movie called ‘Kati Patang’ (The Severed Kite). ‘Ye Shaam Mastaani, Madahosh Kiye Jaaye
Mujhe Dor Koi Khinche, Teri Or Liye Jaaye’, is one of the most exceptionally heart-touching Bollywood songs with the most extraordinarily beautiful lyrics. In the movie Rajesh Khanna begins the song with his whistling while he strolls around the scenic countryside. Rajesh Khanna and Asha Parekh’s pair was a hit in this Shakti Samanta movie ‘Kati Patang’. If you listen carefully you’ll love the strains of mouth organ played through this song.
Main Chali Main Chali
Music: Rahul Dev Burman
Lyrics: Rajendra Krishan
Singers: Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle
Remember the popular 1968 comedy film ‘Padosan’? The songs from ‘Padosan’ are still loved by millions of Indians around the world. Even after 4 decades, the popularity of these beautiful songs hasn't faded out. In ‘Mai Chali Mai Chali’ Saira Banu and her gang of girlfriends roam around the scenic city on their bicycles, so this song starts with the merry sound of a moving bicycle. ‘Mai Chali Mai Chali, Dekho Pyaar Ki Gali, Mujhe Roke Naa Koyi, Mai Chali Mai Chali’ is a mesmerizing melody and can be heard or sung while on a road trip.
Chhod Aaye Hum
Music: Vishal Bharadwaj
Lyrics: Gulzar(Sampooran Singh Kalra)
Singers: Hariharan, Krishnakumar Kunnath (K.K), Suresh Wadkar
‘Chhod Aaye Hum’ is almost like a didactic song with a moral message behind it. It is from the 1996 movie ‘Maachis’ directed by Gulzar. The title of the film is used as a metaphor which conveys that the youth of any nation are matchsticks that could get ignited due to the deficiencies in the political and policing systems. The sweet whistling in the song makes it sound more pleasant to the ear. Your spirit would surely get ignited after you finish listening to it. This song would motivate you to fight for a good cause related to the country.
Haye Unki Woh Nigahein
Music: Madan Mohan
Lyrics: Majrooh Sultanpuri
Singers: Asha Bhosle
‘Hay Unki Wo Nigahe, Dil Dekhe Jinki Rahe, Koyi Unse Jake Puchhe Hum Kyu Na Unhe Chahe’ are the heartfelt lines sung by Nutan in the movie ‘Aakhari Dao’ (1958), not to be confused with the 1975 movie ‘Aakhri Daao’. Even though the film was not that popular but this saccharine melody sung originally by Asha Bhosle expresses beautiful emotions. Nutan sings the entire song in the car for her co-star Shekar, who is seen as the driver in this song. Nutan’s friend does the whistling part and the chorus sung by both of them would actually lift up your spirits and make you feel happy.
Main Hoon Na
Music: Anu Malik
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
Singers: Shreya Ghoshal
This song ‘Main Hoon Na’ is from the 2004 movie of the same name. The film was a directorial debut for Farah Khan. Shahrukh Khan, Sunil Shetty, Sushmita Sen, Zayed Khan and Amrita Rao played the lead roles. It was a rage amongst the fans back then and was sung impeccably well by Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam. The humming and whistling at the very beginning of this track would cast an enchanting spell on you. I feel we should once again make this soulful melody a part of our everyday music playlist? I’m sure you won’t get bored of it.
Main Hoon Jhoom Jhoom Jhumroo
Music: Kishore Kumar
Lyrics: Kishore Kumar
Singers: Kishore Kumar
A fully entertaining Song with the hilarious lyrics ‘Main Hoon Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom Jhumaroo Fakkad Ghumu Banake Ghumaroo’ will make you dance like crazy. Kishore Kumar’s yodeling skills were the best. Bollywood has never had a yodeller like him and this particular song will help you listen to his best yodeling. Only a genius like Mr. Kishore Kumar could have created a masterpiece like ‘Main Hoon Jhoom Jhoom Jhumroo’. The black and white song video will take you on a train ride around a spectacular hill station. The gorgeous Madhubala is seen to be travelling on the train with a pair of binoculars in her hand. If you have never heard this song before, do listen to it and dance your heart out.
