We’re back to the day we work all week, weekends. Maybe you got up late; maybe you are an early riser; no matter what time you’re reading this, have a great weekend! And guess what? We’re also back with our underrated Bollywood music recommendations. As much as you love to listen to and rediscover these songs, as much as I love to write about them, and there’s no way we both stop enjoying great music.
It’s a Sunday and we want to be lazy. If it’s not lazy, stop at least a bit. Sit on this chair by your window while you sip your coffee. Maybe our underrated songs could help you with the same. As you brew this cup of coffee, read on and let the music play.
Masaan was, is, and will continue to be a movie gem, and there is denial of that fact. It was a brave and brilliant move to have the Indian Ocean on board for the music for the film and we clearly can’t imagine this Vicky Kaushal-Shweta Tripathi star without Tu Kisi Rail Si. But a Bollywood song under- esteemed who deserved much more than she was was Bhor. A song that is soothing and creepy at the same time is a wonder. Take some time and pay attention to the moving words of Sanjeev Sharma.
DIL GIRA DAFATAN (DELHI 6)
if there is one album where AR Rahman not only let his creative juices flow but also brought a tsunami, it was Delhi 6. Although the album has gems that will stay with us until the end of our days. time, a song that failed the mainstream and remained an underrated Bollywood song was Dil Gira Dafatan. A number too far ahead of the standard chains. Try to fix it in a box, and it won’t. There is a western influence, an eastern vibe, and if that’s not enough, Rahman adds classical instruments to it. Plus, Ash King meets Rahman in a dream streak is a dream in itself.
NAAM ADA LIKHNA (Yahaan)
It was Shoojit Sircar in his early years telling the story of Kashmir and Shantanu Moitra watering his magic at the same time. Moitra makes music that soothes you, puts your feet out of a window, and lets it play in the background. Naam Ada Likhna are two self-described lovers, and he is one of the best in Shreya Ghoshal. And unfortunately also an underrated song.
DO JAHAN (HAIDER)
It is rare for actors to try their hand at singing and really succeed. Shraddha Kapoor is one of them. While also subject to criticism, one cannot ignore the fact that when she teamed up with Suresh Wadkar for Do Jahan, we fell in love. Composed by Vishal Bharadwaj, written by Gulzar, Haider’s Do Jahan is a criminally underrated Bollywood song. Play now and feel the magic.
SHEHER MEIN (ROCKSTAR)
It’s shocking how a song from the Rockstar album made it to the underrated songs list. But sadly it’s true, and Sheher Mein is one of those AR Rahman babies still waiting to be recognized. Give this Mohit Chauhan issue a chance and let it grow on you. Once it does, there is no going back.
