MahaShivrati is one of the most celebrated festivals of India. Lord Shiva is beloved to many and has a dedicated mass following. The celebrations of Shivaratri not only involve praying and fasting, but also revering the God of Power. It was this day when Lord Shiva married Parvati. Adding more to the celebrations along with Bhajans, these Bollywood songs will add more to the fun!
1.O Shivji Bihane Chale- Munimji (1955)
Singer: Hemant Kumar
This song from the film Munimji and is written by Shailendra. The song is composed by none other than S.D Burman. This sums up the whole Shivratri flavor and is a story in itself.
2.Chale Bhole Baba Byah Rachane Ko- Kailashpati (1962)
Singer- Mohammad Rafi
From the film Kailashpati, this song is in the melodious voice of Mohammad Rafi. It is composed by Avinash Vyas and is a very nice track. It tells the story of how Shivji is all set to get married. And that captures the essence of the festival.
3.Aate Hain Kashi Se Hokar- Kailashpati (1962)
Singer: Mahendra Kapoor
Another track from the film Kailashpati, this also is a track that summarizes the Journey of Lord Shiva. The lyrics are apt and totally devotional.
4.Satyam Shivam Sundaram- Satyam Shivam Sundaram (1978)
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
This title track of the film has really beautiful lyrics and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. In the mellifluous voice of Lata Mangeshkar, the song is very apt and good. It is a Superhit track starring Zeenat Aman and Shashi Kapoor. It is composed by Legendary Music duo, Laxmikanth and Pyarelal.
5.Jai Jai Shiv Shankar- Aap Ki Kasam (1974)
Singer: Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar
The fun and frolic track from the film Aap Ki Kasam, endears Lord Shiva in a really fun way. The song is by R.D Burman and the lyrics is by Anand Bakshi. Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz upped the masti quotient of the song and Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar added more charm by singing it. It seems Shivratri is incomplete without this track.
Any Festival is celebrated in our country with great fervor and excitement. Every year millions of pilgrims come down to Shiva’s abode Kailash and Kashi, just to seek blessings from Lord Shiva.
Here’s wishing you all a very Happy Mahashivratri! Hope you have fun and enjoy it!
