Movie Songs I can listen again and again - 2

Wishing everyone a very happy Father's Day!! Here is a list of the songs i have loved over the years of Father-son/daughter relationship from Bollywood...check them out.

Picturised on Srriram Lagoo and Master Raju, the song is reminiscent of the basic tenet of father-son relationship: Stern, affectionate but always filled with expectations. Heard this song after a long, long time yesterday night.

Thande Thande Pani se (Pati, Patni aur Woh, 1978)

I guess everyone must have sung this song during Antakshari or while taking a shower. Sung by Mahendra Kapoor, a great song to hear anytime. And yes, if you decide to watch the video....just try and ignore the 34C cup size and 3 month-pregnant belly of Sanjeev Kumar.

Tujhse Naaraz nahin (Masoom, 1983)

Arguably the most poignant father-son song ever written in the history of Indian cinema, it brings around the irony of a father torn between his own turbulent past, his present family and a hazy future for the people he loves the most in his life.

Rote Rote Hasna Seekho (Aandha Kanoon, 1983)

A perfect melodramatic song for Father-daughter relationship, yet filled with a sense of security for doing well in life. Good memories attached with this.

Papa Kehte hain (Qayamat se Qayamat hain, 1988)

A farewell anthem in the late 80s and early 90s, it was a huge hit among the youth. Still carries that effervescence feeling, it shot Udit Narayan to fame as a singer. Not to forget, the chocolate-boy Aamir Khan who rose to stardom with this movie.

But you love me Daddy (Akele Hum Akele Tum, 1995)

Shamelessly plagiarized by Anu Malik from a 1959 hit by Jim Reeves, it brought the father-son duo of Udit & Aditya Narayan together for a song for the first time. This song still brings a smile on your face.

Mujhse naaraz ho to ho jao (Papa Kehte hain, 1996)

One of the most under-estimated songs of Sonu Nigam, much before he made it big with all those private albums of Deewana & Jaan, much before songs of Pardes and Border took him to stardom. And lyrics to die for by one and only Javed Akthar.

PS: Do you have any one of your personal favourite, share it around, cheers!

Actually I dont have any fav songs, but I remember a movie called "Daddy" starring Pooja Bhat and Anupam Kher.Pooja is trying to resurrect her father's career(played by the versatile Anupam Kher) who was a popular singer but has now turned into a raging alcoholic. I had seen the movie long back but it created deep impact. Superb movie :)

Hey Amit

Following your blog since a long time. Though, commenting for the first time. My personal favorite here will be ‘Tera mujhse hai pehle ka naata koi’, from the movie ‘Aa gale lag ja’ (Starring Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore). It had two versions of this song. One with the leading lady, and other with the kiddo.
