Ek Post 'Bheegi-Bhaagi Si' : 109 Bolly-Rain Songs !!

Rain..Baarish..Barsaat...Sawan...Paaus...Varsaad....whatever you call it. Still it will remain purest part of God's blessings on mankind. And that brings so much to us. Happiness, sorrow, crazyness, madness [to go and dance], childishness [to play in mud], 'hunger'ness [yummy Pakodaaaa...], Wander'ness', sexiness [well...umm..] 'bad'ness, 'crime'ness [nahinnn....Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do..]. And much more,,,ness hi ness. [Ahem...not the Wadia.]

On a serious note, this post is a dedication to Rain in Bollywood. What would our beloved Bolly would be, without rain?

There would be no crime, like the one below, fantastic opening to one of the best thriller of recent time. Johnny Gaddar.

There wouldn't be mushy mushy romance inside when its raining outside. Just like this hot couple below, in Pyar Ke Side Effects.

Or else, there wouldn't be a gal, catching drops of rain on Nth floor at a Marine Drive Tower...Life in a Metro, such a wonderful movie which makes excellent use of Mumbai Baarish.

Or there wouldn't be discussions at Marine Drive, discussions abt life looking at calm see. Feeling rain - at the wall of Marina. [JTYJN]

There wouldn't be Oh...So..Hot..dances in Bollywood. Gosh..bolly, you are the inventor of most powerful (!!) form of dance. With equally amusing dressing. The sexy Saree.

There wouldn't be World's shortest Lovestory.. and SRK selling Chai..:P

Or else, tear jerker scenes and awesome chemistry...would be out of this world.
[Guru+U Me aur Hum+JWM (in header)].

There would be no Pure Fun in Rain songs. I absolutely love the following -what energy is all about. Mindblowing dance movements [Aish !!!] and stupendous sound recording by Late H Shridhar, you can feel the rain all around you. And how can I forget the Gujju Doha in between..Ahh..Rahman !!

Yet another song of Rahman. Showing Fabulous visuals of life on a road, in rain. Movie Doli Saja Ke Rakhna. I don't know but it must be Santosh Sivan who had captured this.

And how can I forget yet another Rahman. 'The' Waheeda Rahman. In Kaagaz Ke Phool.

Also not to forget 'it happened one night' movie Chameli with some great visuals of Mumbai on a rainy night.

And, there would be No Legendary Song. Do I need to describe this ??? :)

Finally, 'the' most favorite Rain scene : From Guide. After numerous viewings- I still cry at this.

So there, are my feelings of Rainy Rainy Bollywood. And How else could I conclude this post, but with a Jumbo Playlist of Rain Songs. Its been a hectic job to find links to almost all of them. Do check them out, all links lead to YouTube. And tell me more songs. Cause I am a loser at older movies. And also tell me YOUR favorites. My Favorites are marked as ***.

I have also included the songs which do not feature rain at all. But its not just to complete the list. Do 'listen' to them. They are included cause they have all feel of Rainy day. i can tune all of them and feel beautiful rain outside.

Oh, and DO NOT forget to check out readers' choice in Comments section, and tell me ur favorites too.

  2. Oh My. Thanks a lot. Phadu !! Loved the word. Thanks again for bookmarking it.

  3. Great list.
    One song I think you should add is Yeh Aalam Yeh Mausam from Jai Kishen (Akshay Kumar, Ayesha Takia). Great song!

  4. Nahiiiiiiiiiii...

    You missed out my favourite barsaat track. The voluptuous Shilpa Shirodkar romancing Sunil Shetty in Gopi Kishan, the song is : Chhatri Na Khol Barsaat Main, Bheeg Jaane de, Bheegi Raat Main. :)

    Here's the song.

  5. Lovely!

    I love rain songs. The one with Aamir and Kajol in Fanaa is one of my faves. :)

  6. What about Baadal Jo Barse to from Gardish..had Dimple and Jackie Shrofff

  7. Anonymous14:12

    This post is a masterpiece.

  8. Yep, this is a fantastic list, man! I really like #1 :) I'll be back for more, there are several in here that I haven't seen. Thank you Darshit!

  9. bwood_fan
    Thanks. I will search and include that song soon.

    ROFL. I had that in mind actually. But i didn't wanna include such a 'hot' song. ;) But Now surely will include. Cause there must be tons of 'fans', na?

    Thanks. The Fanaa song is definitely under hot favorite of mine. [see header] But I didn't like the way it concluded. Kajol is not made for that, does she?

    Welcome to my blog. I have to search for Gardish. I can remember some scenes from the movie. Maybe a fight sequence, but have to search for the song, and will include soon.

    Oh My !! Thanks a lot for such an honour.

    You just can't get enought of #1 na?? ha ha. Do check this out later. I also would like to know wht you thought abt the favorite moments listed at beginning.

  14. ajnabi

    Thank you so much. But actually I don't know much about podcast and I don't think I have such a bandwidth :( sad, i know. But you are welcome to do such thing. And yes, It took really long for putting them togther. Not only songs, but the screencaps, that was a big big job.

    So glad you liked it. And you are giving me so much credit. Thanks again.

  15. WOW! Fabulous! :-)
