In India, different states and regions have different languages called regional languages. For example, people in Maharashtra speak Marathi, people from Punjab speak Punjabi, people from West Bengal speak Bengali and so on. However, there is one language that binds all of us in one thread. Yes, you guessed it right; it’s our very popular Hindi language.
Hindi forms base of our common medium of communication to talk to one another. In addition to this, it also forms base for our most renowned and wide spread Bollywood. The most important aspect in which this language leaves a mark on our lives through Bollywood is by the songs that the movies have in Hindi. Hindi songs leave an impact on us, be they from whichever era of Bollywood. While some still recite the famous “Ae meri zohra zabi” whenever they sit with friends and family, there are many who are mad to the tunes of hit numbers of this time such as “Tere naina”. Whatever the case may be, the songs in hindi have something to please the souls and the singing freak in all Indians.
The songs in hindi are so lively and are composed with such great lyrics that they can make even a simple evening a live concert with singers comprising your close friends and family members. A very common activity that we love to indulge in while on vacations and outings is playing “Antakshari”. “Antakshari”, our very favorite pastime, is in fact, a collation of melodious songs in hindi that can be sung for as long as one wants. To be true, the inventory of songs in hindi is the longest if we compare it with the database of songs in any other language, for that matter even English.
The songs in hindi are known for their wordings, music, rhythm, melody, etc. With a large number of singers that endorse our hindi film fraternity, each song in hindi comes out as extremely pleasing because each song is sung by the singer who is most suited for that song.
Some of the all-time favorite songs in hindi are as follows:
Neele neele ambar par
Vada karle sajna
Dilbar mere kab tak mujhe
Tumse milke aisa laga
Tum aa gaye ho
Ek pyaar ka nagma hai
Dil kya kare
Do lafzon ki hai
Mere samne vali khidki mein
The songs in hindi owe their name and fame to some great music directors and other renowned personalities from the hindi film industry, who took these songs to a completely new platform in their composition that they are today well received by people all over the world. Some of such great personalities are Raj Kapoor, RD Burman, Lakshmikant–Pyarelal, Nadeem Shravan, Kishor Kumar, and many more names that added the name and fame that songs in hindi enjoy today.
Many claim that the songs in hindi that were composed in earlier times had more meaning and were accompanied by great, purposeful lyrics. According to them, today’s songs lack meaningful lyrics, great composition and lively, soulful feeling. They are merely full of loud, jazz music. Well, many would agree with this viewpoint, else why would every second song from the olden times be remixed now?
