After so much experience and winning so many awards, he is no longer an amateur taking any work that comes his way, but he has grown out of the silly songs with weird lyrics and devastating music.

Subhash Ghai first wanted A.R Rahman to compose the music for Pardes, but he was too expensive, so he asked Nadeem-Shravan to do it and the album was said to be the best composition of Nadeem-Shravan by Planet Bollywood as well as many other Music critics.

Even Shahrukh Khan mentioned in some of his interviews that “Yeh Dil Deewana” was his favourite song, sung for him by Sonu Nigam. Anand Bakshi deserves the maximum credits for giving birth to the beautiful words with deep meaning that make up this track.

This album was Jatin-Lalit’s last composition together, but it was considered to be their best. Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan deserve complete credits for the otherworldly charm and magic exuded by this song.

Behind the VFX effects and Amir, Kajol’s chemistry it is the wonderful singing by Sonu and Sunidhi that deserves the compliments. Prasoon Joshi’s poetic abilities shine through the melodious song. Fanaa was a classic and so is this track.

Where Did Sonu Nigam Imbibe His Love For Music From?

Sonu Nigam had music in his blood, as his parents did a lot of stage shows and musical performances, but he came from a very humble background and did not have any fancy, expensive instruments as a kid. He learnt on a mini harmonium. When he became a successful singer, he brought the costliest instruments for himself.

As he came from nowhere, he always had a deep longing to rise and shine.

He wanted to emerge out of the ashes like a Phoenix and by the blessings of God he achieved a lot. Sonu Nigam says that “My prayer is to learn new things, imbibe fresh insights. You must not take life too seriously. You must enjoy the process of living”.

Just like Sonu, we must learn new things, absorb new insights and not take life too seriously, instead enjoy the entire process of living.

Bollywood Songs That Will Transport You To A Winter Wonderland

Winter is at its peak. Many of us are fond of the chilling cold and some of us get extremely lazy during this time of the year. Whether you love the winter weather or not, it brings along a lot of excitement, a chance to enjoy your favourite book or movie underneath the warm quilts while sipping on to hot coffee or soup. It is a time to be merry and jolly and celebrate the warmth in your heart.

Bollywood has a large collection of songs which are picturized in the snow and describe the chilly weather in the best possible way. Let’s have a look at a few such songs below.

Enjoy the songs on your favourite Music App GaanaPehchaana.

Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahe (1961)

Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahe Song

Music: Shankar-Jaikishan

Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri

Singer: Mohammad Rafi

Movie: Junglee

An evergreen gem of a song sung by Mohammad Rafi, “Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahe” is from the famous 1991 film “Junglee”. Shammi Kapoor appears to be highly energetic as he is seen skiing and jumping over the hills and mountains while wooing his lady love played by Saira Banu. Shankar Jaikishan composed all songs for this film but this one is the most dynamic and energetic song of all.

Shokh Nazar Ki Bijliyaan (1964)

Superhit Actor Manoj Kumar

Music: Madan Mohan

Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan

Singer: Asha Bhosle

Movie: Wo Kaun Thi

Such songs and movies are rarely picturised today. In spite of the advancement in technology, picturesque songs like “Shokh Nazar Ki Bijliyaan” are rarely heard or seen these days. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan might not have written too many lyrics, but the songs written by him are special and loved till today. Sadhana and Manoj Kumar are too good with the acting. They are seen ice-skating with other crew members in perfect coordination.

Hum Aur Tum (1973)

Sharmila Tagore, Rajesh Khanna

Music: Laxmikant, Pyarelal

Lyrics: Sahir, Ludhianvi

Singers: Lata Mangeshkar- Kishore Kumar

A beautiful winter song picturised in the snow “Hum Aur Tum” is from the 1973 movie “Daag” based on Thomas Hardy’s novel, “The Mayor Of Casterbridge”. It stars Sharmila Tagore and Rajesh Khanna. A typical Kishore Kumar-Lata Mangeshkar melody with the words of the song beautifully expressed through the lyrics by Sahir Ludhianvi. Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore made a great onscreen pair.

Karvaten Badalte Rahe Saari Raat Hum (1974)

Actress Mumtaz

Music: R.D Burman

Lyrics: Anand Bakshi

Singers: Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar

Movie: Aapki Kasam

The greatest singers, musician and lyricist came together to create this magnificent song picturised in snowy Switzerland.  Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz’s acting is simply class apart. Similarly, Lata Ji and Kishore Da add a divine touch to this regular romantic number.

Kitni Khoobsoorat Yeh (1982)

Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee Gulzar

Music: R.D Burman

Lyrics: Anand Bakshi

Singers: Kishore Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Lata Mangeshkar

A beautifully picturised song shot in a picturesque hill station covered with lush green hills and snowy mountains. “Kitni Khoobsurat Hai” is another master creation by R. D Burman. The sceneries and locales are simply spectacular and watching the lead actors Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee Gulzar and Vinod Khanna spending quality time in the breathtaking locales give a certain sense of happiness. Anand Bakshi is too good with the lyrics.

Meethi Meethi Sardi Hai (1986)

Anil Kapoor

Music: Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics: S.H Bihari

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

A sweet song about the chilly winters, “Meethi Meethi Sardi Hai” from “Pyar Kiya Hai Pyar Karenge”, the 1986 romantic film starring Anil Kapoor and Padmini Kolhapure will warm up your heart in this cold weather. Laxmikant Pyarelal’s compositions were one of a kind and continue to charm us till today. Ignite the warm sparks in the chilling wintery weather with this song.

Zara Sa Jhoom Loon Main (1995)

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge

Music: Jatin-Lalit

Lyrics: Anand Bakshi

Singers: Abhijit Bhattacharya, Asha Bhosle

A wacky song from the all-time favourite Bollywood film “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge”. This song is wacky because, like most Bollywood songs we find Kajol doing weird things like dancing in the snow in a short, one-piece dress, she steals the dress after breaking the glass showcase where it’s been displayed. Abhijit Bhattacharya’s voice was the most perfect one for Shahrukh Khan, it’s sad that he doesn’t sing for Shahrukh anymore. Asha Bhosle’s voice really suits Kajol.

Ye Ishq Haye (2007)

Kareena Kapoor Khan

Music: Pritam Chakraborty

Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

Singers: Shreya Ghoshal

Director Imtiaz Ali has always been thanked by thousands of Bollywood movie buffs for exploring such extraordinary and unusually enchanting locations across India. This song sung by Shreya Ghoshal with Kareena Kapoor dancing in it became quite a peppy and catchy number amongst the youngsters way back in 2008-9. Thereafter Rohtang Pass, located at a height of 3979 metres, at a distance of 51 km from Manali “an extremely chilly location” became a sought-after Bollywood shooting location.

The mercury levels are dipping every day. Winter is the best time for trips, parties, get-togethers etc. Switch on your heaters, get inside your blankets and listen to these soothing winter melodies.

Mere Naam Tu

Mere Naam Tu Song From Zero

This heart-touching, romantic track starting with the beautiful music of violins is a perfect Shahrukh Khan melody. Its written by Irshad Kamil, composed by Ajay-Atul, the Gogavale brothers and sung by Abhay Jodhpurkar. The slow pace at which this song rises and falls makes this breathtaking melody a masterpiece to watch out for. The song video is quite an entertaining one as well. Rating: 5/5


Isaqbaazi Song From Zero

This highly anticipated song is finally out and is receiving plenty of love and respect from Bollywood Music Lovers all over the world. People are specifically loving it because of the magnetic duet performance by Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan. Shahrukh looks immensely ridiculous as the tiny man in front of gigantic Salman, but he rocks his role as Bauua. Sukhwinder Singh and Divyaa Kumar are too good with the singing. Sukhwinder Singh’s voice sounds as charming as it did a decade back. Rating: 3/5

Husn Parcham

Husn Parcham Item Number

The rap singer for this song, Raja Kumari especially received a call from Shahrukh Khan, who told her that he was a big fan of her music and wanted to work with her. Her real name is Svetha Rao. Svetha wanted to be a doctor and not a rapper, but destiny made her become a rapper and now she is singing this song. Bhoomi Trivedi has done a wonderful job. Irshad Kamil and Ajay-Atul are quite successful at creating a fresh and striking item number. Rating: 3/5

Did you know that Anushka Sharma walked that extra mile to make her role appear absolutely natural? She practised moving around on a wheelchair at home for around 2 months. Each song has a distinct style and the musicians have done really well. Hope you guys enjoyed this brilliant music review.
