Don’t we all know, that Bollywood Music consistently sets a higher standard of excellence and entertainment than the movies in which they are heard, and often outlasts them in popularity by decades? Well, the vast treasure-house of Bollywood Music is overfilled with songs which broke all the records and turned out to be the most popular melodies, but the movies in which these songs were heard are either not that famous or were flops.
Let’s read about a few well-loved songs from not so famous movies
Mohabbat Buri Bimari
Music: Amit Trivedi, Mikey McCleary
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Singer: Shalmali Kholgade“Bombay Velvet” was not that successful, but songs from the movie were quite well received. ‘Mohabbat Buri Bimari’ is a slow paced jazz number which will keep you thoroughly entertained. This melody is quite like a stress buster and you’ll love swaying to this song for hours on end. Shalmali Kholgade’s husky voice works like magic.
Naach Meri Jaan
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Singers: Nakash Aziz, Kamaal Khan, Dev Negi, Tushar Joshi
‘Naach Meri Jaan Hoke Magan Tu, Chhod Ke Saare Kintu Parantu’, is an absolutely fun number starring Salman Khan and his brother Sohail Khan. Salman and Sohail are seen dancing around some scenic spots in a beautiful hill station with the locals dressed up in their traditional costumes. The chorus part of this song has been sung in Kumaoni language and Pritam, an expert at composing such merry compositions has simply slain it.
Na Tum Hamein Jaano
Music: S.D Burman
Lyrics: Majrooh Sultanpuri
Singer: Hemant Kumar
This one will surely lift your heart and spirits like never before. It's an extremely soothing melody with quite an engaging Mukhra and Antara sung by the legendary Hemant Kumar, from the 1962 film ‘Baat Ek Raat Ki’ starring Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman. Many people don’t know about this thrilling film, but the song has since then been a huge favourite amongst Bollywood Music Lovers.
Toota Jo Kabhi Taara
Lyrics: Priya Saraiya
Singer: Atif Aslam, Sumedha Karmahe
Dancer cum director Remo D'Souza's film ‘Flying Jatt’ didn’t seem to win over many hearts but the sweet song ‘Toota Jo Kabhi Taara’, toppled over with sugar and honey with some breathtakingly enchanting visuals starring Tiger Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez is sure to take your breath away. The video seems to be straight out of a fairytale. If you haven’t heard it yet, do give it a try.
Abhi Na Jao Chhodkar
Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianvi
Singers: Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi
This is a classic melody still loved by generations of music lovers from the 1961 film ‘Hum Dono’ produced by Dev Anand and ‘Navketan Films’. The movie starred Nanda along with Dev Anand but is not remembered and has quite a low rating on IMDb(Internet Movie Database), but this song is still sung by budding singers in their own style and it's charm still stays the same.
Sheila Ki Jawaani
Lyrics: Vishal Dadlani
Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan, Vishal Dadlani
The 2010 Bollywood Heist comedy film, 'Tees Maar Khan' directed by Farah Khan, received lots of negative reviews, but the item number ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ turned out to become the most popular party song of the decade. Katrina Kaif was too good in the song and Sunidhi sang it really well as the song matched her genre. Last but not the least, Vishal Dadlani did a great job with the booming composition as well as the singing.
