It has been a little over two years since we saw the release of “the most patriotic song” of this generation, Teri Mitti of Akshay Kumar directed Kesari. The song recently crossed a billion views on YouTube, which is certainly no small feat until you respond to the “ Tik-Tok, Reels ” section of the audience.
In December 2018, we started the “ Koimoi Bollywood Music Countdown Audience Poll ” section to find out what your favorite songs of the month are. It was like a radio list, but you are the judge of what you like.
Kesari’s song was first added in the March 2019 poll, and it far outweighed the rest. Continuing his winning streak, the touching track by Manoj Muntashir remained the winner in 8 of the 12 months that followed.
From March 2019 to February 2020, forget to get off the list, B Praak’s lowest song was ranked at the 4th position. The track continued to be in first place for 4 and 3 months in a row with only one month gap.
Even in that gap, it took Akshay Kumar to beat Akshay Kumar as Good Newwz’s Sauda Khara Khara won in November 2019. Composed by Arko, Teri Mitti could have been number one for nine straight months without Sauda Khara Khara .
Here is the song position table 2019 by 2020:
March 2019 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
April 2019 – Teri Mitti in 2nd position
May 2019 – Teri Mitti in 3rd position
June 2019 – Teri Mitti in 4th position (Ve Maahi de Kesari in 3rd position)
July 2019 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
August 2019 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
September 2019 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
October 2019 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
November 2019 – Teri Mitti in 2nd position (Sauda Khara Khara of Good Newwz in 1st position)
December 2019 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
January 2020 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
February 2021 – Teri Mitti in 1st position
In fact, back when the song reigned supreme on Koimoi Bollywood Music Countdown Audience Poll, its lyricist Manoj Muntashir turned to his social media handles, posting the results. He said: “Officially @fidgetcube declares #TeriMitti the winning song of the season. So once again it has been proven that love for the motherland is greater than any other form of love.
There were no new songs coming after March 2020, so we put the posts on hold. But that was just a comma and not a period so wait for us as we bounce back with a bunch of new songs keeping the best from last year. We’re not letting the song drop off the list anytime soon. The song was your favorite and it will stay on the list until you keep voting for it.
Khiladi Kumar, on the occasion of the song crossing a billion views on YouTube, tweeted: “#TeriMitti is more than just a song… it’s a sentiment that now resonates with over a billion hearts! Thank you for this love, ”tweeted Akshay Kumar.
The moving issue was written by Manoj Muntashir and composed by Arko. Singer B. Praak lent his voice to Teri Mitti with Akshay Kumar. While the film became a success, the song was a turning point in contemporary Bollywood film music. This helped to grow the popularity of B. Praak.
