Hindi film songs! Chart presentations

I like films that do not have songs. (Personal opinion) unless you make a musical; what is the need for a song? Songs break the flow of the film.


True, Indian mythology is full of verses. Mahabharata is apt example. Indians love to sing, dance and all most all film institutes have smart answer to this question. I am surprised that majority of directors just sit on the set and a song choreographer takes over. Many times resulting is no continuity and glitches!


Indian audience are so much used to song and dance routine that there is introduction song for Hero(ine), flirting song, 'Item song' usually after interval or before climax, then there is sad song where hero(ine) is depressed or missing his/her beloved, oh yes wedding songs, inspiration songs and what not! And why not? Music companies have to make money, sell DVD's , mobile content and producers sell rights to gain extra bucks!


They say in India, there are songs for any event! as such as death! Satyajit ray liked songs too he describes logically in his book ‘our films, their films’.


Now, here I got forwarded mail by my niece. Somebody put chart presentation for some of popular songs. Indians will laugh at this, foreigners may not understand. But have a look at this and smile!



Nazar ke saamne
Jigar ke paas (hahahahahaha)
Koi rehta hai
Woh ho tum, tummm, tummmmm....

Ho Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga...
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga!
Jaise Khilta Gulaab
Jaise Shaayar Ka Khwaab
Jaise Ujli Kiran
Jaise Van Mein Hiran
Jaise Chaandni Raat
Jaise Naghme Ki Baat
Jaise Mandir Mein Ho Ek Jalta Diya
Ho Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga...aaahhhhh

Mera joota hai japaani, Patloon englistaani,
Sar pe laal topi rusi,
Phir bhi dil hei Hindustani!


Aaj main oopar aasmaan neeche
Aaj main aage zamaana hai peechhe
Aaj main oopar aasmaan neeche
Aaj main aage zamaana hai peechhe
Tere mere beech mein kaisa hai yeh bandhan Anjaaaaaaaana

Tum paas aaye,
Yuh muskaraaye
Tumne na jaane kya sapne dikhaaye
Ab to mera dil jaage naa sota hai
Kya karun haaye, Kuch Kuch Hota Hei!


Mere anganey mein tumhaara kya kaam hai!


Main to raste se jaa raha tha,
Bhelpuri kha raha tha
Ladki ghuma raha tha
Teri naani mari toh mei kya karun!


Hummm tummmm ik kamrey mein band hoon, aur chaavi kho jaaye!

So gaya yeh jahaan, so gaya aasmaan,
So gayi saari manzileen, hoon so gaya hei rasta!
