While festivals play a very important role in Bollywood movies, even seasons are quite pivotal for a film. The season that has been explored a lot in our Bollywood films is the rainy season, especially for songs. Sometimes thanks to the rains, the love blossoms between the lead actors, and sometimes actresses just showcase how happy they are to dance in rains.
So, today let’s look at the list of famous rain songs from Bollywood movies…
Ek Ladki Bhigi Bhagi Si
We start with Ek Ladki Bhigi Bhagi Si from Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi. The song featured Kishore Kumar and Madhubala. Composed by S.D.Burman and sung by Kumar, it is surely a wonderful song about a guy describing a girl who gets drenched in the rains. Well, the way Kishore Kumar teased Madhubala in the song, it surely impressed us.
Pyar Hua Ikrar Hua Hai
Raj Kapoor’s Shree 420 had some amazing songs and one of them of Pyar Hua Ikrar Hua Hai. It is clearly one of the most romantic tracks of Bollywood and rain set-up made it more impactful. How can we forget the beautiful chemistry between Raj Kapoor and Nargis in the song!
Rim Jhim Gire Sawan
Rim Jhim Gire Sawan from Manzil featured Amitabh Bachchan and Moushumi Chatterjee. The song composed by R.D Burman and sung by Lata Mangeshkar, wonderfully captured the different locations of Mumbai during rains. Also, the cute chemistry between Big B and Moushumi Chatterjee was one of the highlights of the track.
Aaj Rapat Jaye
While in Rim Jhim Gire Sawan, Amitabh Bachchan showcased his calm and composed avatar, he was totally opposite in Aaj Rapat Jaye from Namak Halal. He was seen dancing in the rains and openly flirting with Smita Patil.
Megha Re Megha
Lamhe is mostly known for the song Morni Baga Ma, but when we talk about the songs of rains, we have to mention Megha Re Megha from the film. Sridevi’s entry in the film happens with this track and one glimpse of the actress dancing and we have a smile on our face. Ila Arun and Lata Mangeshkar’s voice did wonders for this song.
Rim Jhim Rim Jhim
Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s 1942: A Love Story is still remembered for the wonderful songs and one of them is Rim Jhim Rim Jhim. Set against the backdrop of rains, the romantic number featured Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala and their chemistry in the song was simply amazing.
Tip Tip Barsa Paani
The lyrics of the song is, ‘Tip tip barsa paani, paani ne aag laga di…’, but it was Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon’s sizzling chemistry that had set the screens on fire. Clearly, this is one of the hottest rain songs. The track is now being recreated by Akshay and Katrina, let’s see if it will be equally sizzling.
Ghanan Ghanan from Lagaan showcased that how rains are not less than a celebration for the farmers in India. On seeing the clouds, the whole village starts dancing and how they are excited to welcome rains. At the end of the song, it doesn’t rain and as an audience, we were also left disappointed just like the characters of the film.
Watching Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dancing is always a treat. She danced her heart out in the song Barso Re from Guru. The song was composed by AR Rahman, sung by Shreya Ghoshal and choreographed by Saroj Khan, the trio came up with the perfect rain song. Also, the hook step of the track had become quite famous.
It is said that if there’s a rain song in a Shraddha Kapoor film and she gets drenched then the movie will surely be hit. Shraddha has featured in many songs where we see her getting drenched in rain, but her most famous song is Cham Cham from Baaghi. The actress showed off her amazing dance moves in the track and impressed us a lot.
