This concludes the quadrilogy (trilogy is a story having 3 parts ... so go figure) on Bollywood rain songs. Why a quadrilogy on rain songs you ask?! Well not stating the obvious ... its the monsoon season silly ... so take a deep breath of the sweet wet monsoon air and check out the songs below!
1. Bhaage re mann from the not so mainstream movie Chameli starring Rahul Bose and non size zero Kareena Kapoor starts the countdown of this century.
2. Main yahaan hoon says Shah Rukh Khan to the extremely pretty Preity Zinta in Veer Zaara. Haunting songs from the late Madan Mohan's compositions.
3. Jiya Dhadak Dhadak a beautiful song from the movie Kalyug starring the grown up child artist Kunal Khemu and Smily Suri (ya thats what the chick is called) stakes it claim in this countdown.
4. Hum Tum is the title track of the movie with the same name and has many variants in the same movie featuring Rani Mukherjee and chhote nawab Saif Ali Khan. A very hummable number.
5. Idhar chala main udhar chala from the sci fi movie Koi mil gaya is an unlikely yet deserving song on this list. Starring a 'special' Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta this song is cute.
6. Silsila ye chaahat ka from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Devdas starring Aishwarya Rai has the rains lashing in at the fag end but ...
7. Barso re megha from the movie Guru inspired by the legendary Dhirubhai Amabani's biopic is a lovely rain song of this era. Aishwarya Rai is doing what she does best, looking gorgeous and A R Rahman is doing what he does best, magic!
8. Tum se hi from the feel good film Jab We Met starring ex lovers Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor creates a surrealistic aura largely due to Mohit Chauhan's silken voice.
9. Dilbara from Dhoom finds a place in this list because the rains are not all about love and sizzling chemistry and out of control hormones; once in a while you need a good hearty laugh too! Check out the embarassments of the Chopra, Deol and Bachchan families in this number.
10. Zoobi doobi from the very lovable movie 3 idiots has the sizzling size zero Kareena Kapoor romancing Aamir Khan.
11. Gale lag ja says the goddess Katrina Kaif to none other than Akshaye Kumar in this sensuous number from the dud movie De Dana Dan. No countdown of this century can be truly complete without Katrina Kaif featuring on it.
12. Dekho na from the movie Fanaa starring Kajol and Aamir Khan is a befitting number concluding the countdown of this century's rain songs from Bollywood.
Well there you go me hearties. Trust these songs added to the charm of your lives this monsoon.
This concludes our research on Bollywood rain songs through the ages.
