Bollywood Beats Meet Gaming Fun In Our New Game App

Gaana Pehchaana began as live games played by a large group of friends in Houston, Texas. With time, the founders of Gaana Pehchaana decided to build the game concepts into a game app format for smartphones.

The mission of Gaana Pehchaana has been to entertain Bollywood music fans through the most unique, mind-blowing games, informative blogs and other attractive content based on Bollywood music.

Hindi film songs are an inseparable part of Indian culture and have been putting a smile on the faces of music lovers since the 1930s to today. It might sound ancient but they are precious to our country.

Bollywood Music has always set the highest standards of excellence and entertainment. They are showered with more love than the films. The big disappointment is that the life and soul behind these songs, the singers, composers, lyricists and instrumentalists don’t get the due respect like the film stars. The GP website and app are a tiny effort to pay respect to these artists and their creations which have altered the lives of trillions of people over so many years.

The app has some super exciting games that you can enjoy any time of the day. Either play them alone or play them with your friends and family. You’ll surely have a once in a lifetime experience.

Design your own games on our game app – GaanaP:

First, choose your Difficulty Levels – Sa is the easiest and Pa is the hardest.  Then select the decade of your choice. You might have a taste for old Hindi songs or something from the 2000s. Choose the decade based on that. Now let’s take a look at each of our fun games!

Bhagam Bhag

(Single player game)

What does the name of this game suggest? Bhagam Bhag might sound like you need to run as fast as possible. Isn’t it? This fast game is all about being quick.

Most players enjoy playing Bhagam Bhag. It’s a super fun game in which the player has to guess as many songs as possible within a fixed time limit (Usually 1 minute)

As soon as you click let’s play, the song clip starts playing. Be quick to identify the songs. If you play a higher level of difficulty (…Ga Ma Pa), you win a higher score.

It’s easy to score the maximum points in this game. Just play and check your position on the Master Leaderboard.

Theek Thaak Ho

(Double Player game)

Want to play games for more than a single player? Theek Thaak Ho is a two-player game. It’s the musical version of the old-school time game that we played as kids. We used to call it Tic-Tac-Toe Remember??

Each tile has a short musical clip that plays as soon as the tile is clicked. The first player can place an “X” on a tile by properly guessing the clip. Player 2 can do the same thing with an “O”. The first player to get 3 X’s and O’s in a line vertically, horizontally or diagonally wins the game.

 Player 1 invites Player 2 to join and Player 1 starts the game. Player 1 chooses a tile and clicks on the music note in it. A short clip will play with multiple-choice answers. In case, player 1 chooses the right answer, an ” X” is placed on the tile. If the answer is wrong, the tile is back in place for player 2. It is now player 2’s chance to choose a tile and identify the clip.

If player 2 chooses the right answer, an ‘O’ is placed in that tile. In case, the answer is not right, the tile is back in place for Player 1. The first player to get three ‘Xs or ‘O’s in a line wins. If all nine tiles are played and there is no three-in-a-row, the game is a draw. It’s easy and good for time passing or chilling out. Try it out if you haven’t played it yet.

Ansuna

(Single Player game)

Did you not hear something?? Did you miss out on some songs? This game is all about that. So, you need to keep your ears in a good place to play this one.  

 For every Ansuna game, 4 song names will be provided. But, only 3 song clips will be played automatically one after the other. As soon as you recognise a song, click the song name in the list present at the bottom.  The moment you recognise the three songs, the remaining unselected clip is your “Ansuna” answer. Submit your answer. 

As soon as you recognise a song, you can start the next clip by clicking on the play button for that clip.

Wish to play the same game once again? Just click the replay icon. You can challenge your friends to play the game that you just played by clicking on the challenge icon. Enter your friend’s email address and an invite will go out to them. 

If you are on a trip to some far-off destination. This will be a great game to play while traveling.

Teen Maar Khan

(Single Player game)

Named after the popular film “Tees Maar Khan”, ” Teen Maar Khan” is a magical game on the GaanaP app. The name signifies teen baar maar khaya to gaya!  Are you brave enough to face the maars??

Select your choice of decades. Choose a TMK game from that category. Click the let’s play button to hear the songs. Tap on your answer. Start with Sa and move to the next level if your answer is correct. Don’t worry if “maar khaya” and you got it wrong.  You have two more chances at that level.  Correct answers are awarded points as per the clip level. After 3 maars or wrong chances, the game will end. 

Recognise the clip at half-time and win bonus points. The diamond disc signifies “BONUS POINTS”.

It’s that simple. Just give it a try.
