Bollywood saw some great hit numbers topping the chart busters. Whether the films made it to the box office or not, the music lovers were given to taste some outstanding tunes from the existing and the new talent.
Let us take a look at top ten Hindi songs from Bollywood this year!
10. Manja- Kai Po Che
Amit Trivedi stands next to AR.Rahman in creating some unique tunes that leave great impact. Manja is a soothing track with the sounds of saarangi , and sung by the golden voice of Amit Trivedi himself. This track comes at a point when the dream of the three youngsters starts becoming a reality. Swanand Kirkire has penned some beautiful lines like
“Soyi Takdeerein Jagaa Denge
Kal ko Ambar Jhuka Denge”, which express the determination towards turning one’s dreams into reality, so well.
9. Agal Bagal – Phata Poster Nikla Hero
Fun songs have become the forte of Mika Singh. Agal Bagal is another peppy number from him, composed by Pritam who has given Mika the songs which made him popular. Shot in a Goan setting, Agal Bagal had also some funny dance moves by Shahid Kapoor chasing Illeana D Cruz.
8. Yaaram – Ek Thi Dayan:
Penned by Gulzaar saab and music by Vishal Bharadwaj, Yaaram is an interesting piece of work. Sunidhi Chauhan starts this melody number slowly with the guitar and the song suddenly shifts to a high tempo and it becomes more absorbing from there. This wonderful track is an expression a woman’s love towards her man in very simple and sweet way.
“ Munh khuli jamhaai pe
Hum bajaayein chutkiyaan” (‘When you yawn , I will tap the fingers for you’) . With lines like these, it was the most favorite number for all the married women singing for their dear hubbies on their anniversaries!
7. Dhol Baaje – Ram Leela
Composed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Dhol Baaje is a nice amalgamation of choreography, lyrics and tune going hand-in-hand. The visuals are a treat for the eyes, with Deepika Padukone dancing gracefully the Gujarati style. The song symbolically conveys the pain and suffering of Sita awaiting Ram to come and take her away from the Lanka. If Bollywood was present in mythology, this song would have found a place in Ramayan. Also, it’s a rule of thumb that if there is a Dhol Baaje in Bhansali’s film, it has to be first-rate. (Remember HDDCS?)
6. Tum Tak – Raanjhanaa
The first time when Irshad Kamil and AR.Rahman came together for Rockstar, the album was a pure bliss. With Raanjhanaa’s Tum Tak , it was again proved that this combo is simply unbeatable. The bhajan sounds of manjira, and then a shehnai, and then a dhol, and then the chants of Tum-Tak-Tum-Tak-Tum-Tak. A composition, even Tansen would envy. Rahman is truly a godsend miracle!
5. Sawaar Loon – Lootera
Lootera is undoubtedly one of the best albums of 2013. It’s a very miniature illustration of what Amit Trivedi is capable of. Sawaar Loon is a beautiful composition rendered by Monali Thakur. The perfect tune and a mellifluous voice was picturized aesthetically by director Vikrama Aditya Motwane. The graceful performance by Sonakshi Sinha was an icing on the cake
4. Saree ka Fall – R..Rajkumar
This crazy number from R..Rajkumar reminds us of some of the popular Hindi songs of Govinda-David Dhawan duo. Composed by Pritam, and choreographed by Vishnu Deva, Saree ka Fall became the most popular number played in the autorickshaw’s sound systems at ‘max volume’. The hair-cutting saloons echoed with this jhakaas tune. The vada-pav stalls the Irani Chai cafes were reverberating with the peppy lyrics. An instant chartbuster!
3. Badtameez Dil – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
The foot-tapping music by Pritam and the indefatigable dance by Ranbir Kapoor made even the grandfathers groove to this track. Benny Dayal has sung it with a sparkling josh like never before. The song was full of life and brought back the Jawaani among the junta of all ages. The perfect song on the dance floor!
2. Lungi Dance – Chennai Express
Be it Mehendi Laga ke Rakhna from DDLJ, Koi Mil Gaya from KKHH , or Chaiyya-Chaiyya from Dil Se, these Hindi songs were mandatory in all the cultural events of schools and colleges. Coincidentally, all of them were SRK’s. Lungi Dance joins this list. A tribute to ‘Thalivar’ Rajnikanth, and composed by Yo Yo Honey Singh, Lungi Dance became a part of every other small and big events and celebrations throughout the nation. Death ceremonies were the only exception!
1. Tum Hi Ho – Aashiqui 2
The song which teenagers dedicated the most to their college sweethearts in the Music channels.
The song that became an essential ringtone for all the youngsters.
The song that had the capability of pulling the crowds to the theaters just to watch it.
Composed by Mithoon, sung by Arijit Singh and written by Irshad Kamil, Tum Hi Ho is a gem of a melody that made the junta fall in love with it instantly. Competing with the yesteryear Aashiqui songs is no easy task, but Tum Hi Ho did that and won equal appreciation. The song became an over-night sensation. Tum Hi Ho is undoubtedly the unofficial anthem of the nation, for 2013
