The Indian Cinema lovers kill for beaches in the Bollywood films for two reasons – one for travelling to exotic islands and seas that were never seen before along with their favourite stars, and two, to letch at the killer bodies of the celebrities sufficiently exposed to get the tickets counting.
Beach songs are popular with the masses and when rendered with some great music, these songs also become chartbusters that will be played all over the Nation for years to come.
Let us take a dig at some popular beach songs of Bollywood over the period of time with best bodies and lilting music!
Rangeela – Tanha Tanha
This song practically rocked the country when the film was released. Super sexy Urmila Matondkar running on the beach in her bikini outfit with Jackie Shroff watching her lustily; the whole things would have gone from sexy to cheap if not for A R Rahman’s sublime music that made the song a superhit.
Qurbani – Hum tumhe chahte hai aise
The song of the 70’s considered too ahead for the times saw Zeenat Aman standing by the beach side like a Hollywood style bikini babe, all dressed to the minimum. The fact that someone like Feroz Khan who was a male sex symbol praising and professing love to her with mere words; the song was a sensation in itself.
Saagar – Saagar kinare dil yeh pukare
Another sizzling number all in the salt water, the song shows Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia in their sexiest avatars in the most conservative times. The man woman lust was completely capitalised to rake in the attention of the audience. The song also has a catchy tune, which is an afterthought by the way!
Pukar – Samundar mein naha ke
This song took the burning chemistry of Amitabh Bachchan and Zeenat Aman to the very next level! Zeenat gets all oomphy,seducing Big B with a certain unabashed touch. This was completely expected of the likes of Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi those days, who were the bolder versions of heroines in Bollywood that time.
Murder – Bheege Honth Tere
Perhaps the most popular song that marked the arrival of sex symbols called Emraan Hashmi and Mallika Sherawat, the song shows it all without censors. Mallika taking off her clothes like never before to revelal her sexy figure in a bikini and Emraan making the most of it being the serial kisser, this song will remain at the top of the list all time.
Yuva – Anjaana Anjaani
The subtler version of young fun showing Vivek Oberoi and Kareen Kapoor indulging in some water ritual showcases pure enjoyment of the youth in the modern times. There is no skin show or ugly provocative filming here. Adding to that is the magical composition from A R Rahman.
Housefull – Oh Girl, you’re mine
The song that showcases some of the best bodies in Bollywood, sees Lara Dutta, Deepika Padukone and late Jiah Khan in some hot bikini outfits, gyrating to the tune. The song was a chartbuster for its tapping music as well.
Blue – Aaj Dil Gustakh Hai
The sole depiction of the beauty of underwaters with Lara Dutta looking like a mermaid, this song from Blue is more of a musical delight. Lara Dutta playing with Dolphins is an added attraction. The breath taking visuals of the sea underneath and water kingdom is simply amazing!
Garam Masala – Dil Samundar
Another song with foot tapping music, the number shows hotties Akshay Kumar and John Abraham lusting with the firang and desi bikini babes, making them run after them. The song is all about display of romance in the most compelling way.
Dostana – Shut up and bounce
This song is a hit for three reasons – Shilpa Shetty’s ming blowing figure courtesy power yoga, John Abraham’s peep show in his yellow shorts baring it all and the catchy music that makes one dance. So, just get up and bounce along.
Tashan – Chhaliya
This number is all about Kareena Kapoor’s size zero bod, Saif Ali Khan’s whacky outfits and overall, the couple’s sizzling on screen chemistry. The beach setting was just an extra to showcase the former.
Salaam Namaste – Salaam Namaste
Displaying the beautiful beaches of Australia, this song also catches the bubbly Preity Zinta in her hotness and Saif like a pakka Aussie, not wearing anything. The song is more of a celebration than romance but gathers attention.
Josh – Hai Mera Dil
Who can forget Aishwarya rising out of the Goan waters in a sexy self, spurring nothing but the natural beauty? The song is also very melodious and romantic, connecting with the masses on all counts!
