Nothing can beat a good Navratri song in a Bollywood film. The colours and the complicated dance choreography means that they make the film stars look fantastic and the music full of pounding beats has the audience dancing in their seats. As Navratri approaches, BizAsia looks back at the thumping songs which we still want to jump up and dance to each year.
Dholi Taro Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam۪ (1999)
It cannot be Navratri without Dholi Taro hitting the airwaves and it is completely justified. The sizzling chemistry between Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai only added to this song۪s drama and it was such a good song. From the flirty lyrics to the beautifully choreographed garba moves, this song is sure to be hitting Navratri this year.
Nagada Sang Dhol Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela۪ (2013)
Picturised on the beautiful Deepika Padukone, this song was so much fun to watch on the big screen as she grooved to the Gujarati garba beats. Padukone rehearsed for days before the song۪s shoot and her hard work was evident in the complex moves. Her chemistry with Ranveer Singh was clear to see in this song and it is one that is evergreen.
Radha Kaise Na Jale Lagaan۪ (2001)
Radha Kaise Na Jale is a much slower song than the others mentioned but this is one that is a favourite for the Navratri dance floor. The song was picturised in a very rural small Indian village so this song had a very traditional vibe. It had a sweet innocent look to it and Aamir Khan and Gracy Singh did a great job re-enacting the story of Radha and Krisna۪s love story.
O Re Gori Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage۪ (2001)
Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage۪ was Hrithik Roshan and Amisha Patel second film together and this song just showed why they made such a good couple on screen. O Re Gori was again a much slower song but they enacted the song in a touching way with Mr Roshan showing off his great dance moves.
Disco Dandiya Love Love Love۪ (1989)
Disco Dandiya is a fun take on garba, mixing in 1980s disco moves with traditional dandiya. Aamir Khan was brilliant in the song dancing a very playful take on Navratri and Juhi Chawla looked lovely in pink as she grooved away with Khan. The much loved on screen couple bought this song to life and made the audience want to join in too.
BizAsia wishes all of its readers a very Bollywood filled Navratri!
