My Favorite Bollywood sad songs | Part 1

I’m a huge fan of Bollywood Patho Songs also known as sad songs. I was under the notion that, I have to be a crazy person to prefer sad songs over energetic dance numbers. It was quite shocking to know that more people are inclined towards sad heart-breaking songs. The sad songs with their lyrics and music just make you forget everything. You may enjoy the energetic songs but it’s just live in the moment! But sad songs penetrate deep in to souls!

So, today I am going to list out my favorite top 10 sad songs.

1. Do Pal – Veer Zaara

Veer – Zaara directed by Yash Chopra had an ensemble star cast of Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Rabi Mukherji, Boman Irani, Kiran Kher, Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini. The music was composed by Late Madan Mohan which was revised by his Son Sanjeev Kohli. This song is sung by Lataji and Sonu Nigam. The lyrics were penned by Javed Akhtar.

2. Tere Liye – Veer Zaara

veer-zaara-hindi-song-lyricssWhen it comes to the soundtrack of Veer Zaara, all the songs are marvellous. They are so melodious it soothes the soul! My favourite track from Veer – Zaara is Tere Liye sung by legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and Roop Kumar Rathod. The music is based on old compositions created by Late Madan Mohan which was later revised by his son Sanjeev Kohli. The song is penned by Javed Akhtar.

I really don’t have to say anything much when it comes to this song! It’s self-explanatory. The nightingale voice of Lata ji, soulful music and brilliant performance by the actors Shah Rukh Khan and Priety Zinta is a treat to music and cine lovers. I must say, Yash Chopra did have a brilliant music sense!!!

3. Judaai – Badlapur

Judaai directed by Sriram Raghavan featuring Varun Dhawan and Nawaz Siddiqui in lead roles was released in the year 2015. The music is composed by Sachin Jigar and lyrics were penned by Dinesh Vijan and Priya Saraiya. The song Judaai is sung by Arijith Singh and Rekha Bharadwaj. When Arijith sings “Chadariya Jeeni re jeeni” my heart just drops. So much of pain!

4. Channa Mereya – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Ae dil hai mushkil directed by Karan Johar has a star cast of Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The music was composed by Pritam and music is composed by Amitabh Bhattacharya. This soulful song is sung by Arijith Sing.  Whose heart didn’t skip a beat or tears didn’t fall when this song was played?

5. Kabhi Kushboo – Saaya

O…kay it’s very tough for me to just talk about one song from the movie Saaya. I love all the songs from this film, but this Ghazal “Kabhi Khusboo” composed by Anu Malik just pulls my heart strings every damn time. The lyrics was penned by Sayeed Quadri and was sung by K.K. The song is basically about a lover yearning for dead wife and the lyrics and BG score is so awesome, one cannot stop from singing along.

6. Jhonka Haawa ka – Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali featured Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan and Aishwarya Rai in the leads and was released in the year 1999. The music was composed by Ismail Darbar and lyrics were penned by Mehboob. This beautiful heart – wrenching song was sung by two of my favorite singers Hariharan and Kavita Krishnamurthy.  “Suraj Ki Kirane Subah Ko Teri, Neede Udaati Hogi Na”

7. Nahin Saamne – Taal

Can anything go wrong when it comes to the combination of A.R. Rahman and Subhash Ghai?
Each and every song from this film Taal is out of the world. It was a musical blockbuster at the time of its release. It’s difficult to choose just one. Nahin Saamne sung by Hariharan holds a special place in my heart. I have difficulty with falling asleep and this is my lullaby from past 5 years! Every night this song is on loop and only then I can Sleep.
The magical voice of Hariharan and the soothing music really does wonders!

8. Tujhe yaad na meri aayi – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

This song is from the movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai directed by Karan Johar. The film had a star cast of Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji. The music was composed by Jatin – Lalit and lyrics was penned by Sameer. The song was sung by Udit Narayan , Alka Yagnik and Manpreet Akhtar.  The whole song is one cry fest thanks to lyrics and the acting of Kajol!
