Bollywood Movie Songs with Iconic Videos
Over the years, Bollywood has managed to give us many songs that we can’t get out of our heads. Not only are these songs earworms, but they also contain the most iconic videos. Think ‘Suraj Hua Madhyam’ of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and the magic of SRK and Kajol in front of the Sphinx in Egypt, running towards each other in their see-through outfits. These videos are an integral part of the history of cinema and we have listed 7 of them that we will never be able to forget.
If you’re a fan of Hindi movies, we know you can’t wait to add to your list of must-see movies.
1.’Woh Ladki Hai Kahan’ by Dil Chahta Hai
Watching the screen transform into an 80s movie with Saif Ali Khan and Sonali Kulkarni dancing in costumes from a bygone era is thrilling and makes this one of the best song videos made in the last 20 years. The melody itself is catchy AF.
2. ‘Suraj Hua Madhyam’ by K3G
Your parents would probably have changed the channel when this song was played (desi parental logic) but only you know the feeling of getting goosebumps watching SRK romance Kajol amidst the pyramids. Pyaar.
3. ‘Kajra Re’ from Bunty Aur Babli
Aishwarya Rai’s epic performance with her future husband and stepfather in this video must go down in history for its unexplained sexiness. Aish delivered and how and to this day we sing and dance to that toe tapping tune.
4. ‘Crazy Kiya Re’ by Doom 2
Although she does not play the protagonist, Aish is the main character of Doom 2. Her outfits from this song and, well, from this movie, mark a very important milestone in desi pop-culture. Plus, the crochet step is unforgettable.
5. ‘Deewangi Deewangi’ from Om Shanti Om
This video deserves a special mention simply because Farah Khan managed to achieve what other movie songs hoped for. There are so many celebrities in this song, it’s almost like Khan is calling everyone on a conference call to let them know they’re going to be a part of it. LOL.
6. ‘Senorita’ by Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
That melody, the three dance floors, and the Spanish village in the background — you can’t help but feel the vibe. We’ll show this video to our kids in the future, bragging about how cool our generation was. Definitely makes a great party tune.
7. ‘Dart-e-disco’ by Om Shanti Om
You can’t deny the fact that this movie had some pretty iconic songs and their videos were equal parts funny, screaming, and memorable. SRK’s reveal of his much-publicized 6-pack abs has a lot of childhood memories attached to it.
