Bollywood has been known for capturing every
festive in a grand style, and weddings are no exception. A film is
incomplete without at least one wedding sequence peppered with glitzy
lights, songs and spectacular dance moves and grooves, that can potentially make you fall in love with each moment, and every ceremony
of the wedding. Here's BollyCurry giving you a sneak peak of the songs
that left a mark in the manner that they were portrayed; be it the
music, dance, catchy lyrics, or the overall backdrop emotional feel.
Dulhe Ka Sehra - Dhadkan
Nadeem-Shravan composition is sung by the qawwali maestro, Nusrat Fateh
Ali Khan. The song perfectly describes the feeling experienced by a
bride on her wedding day, as she tries to grasp all the memories with
her family and bid them farewell only to cherish those moments at a
later stage. A line very touching from the song goes: 'Palbhar mein kaise badalte hai rishte, ab to har apna begana lagta hai...' Yes, the immensely touchy lyrics, and the wedding background feel is what makes the song unforgettable.
Taare Hai Baarati - Virasat
of the most emotional moments shared by a bride and groom are complied
in this tender song. It's all about discovering love from the movie Virasat, and this song is crooned
in the vocals Jaspinder Narula and Kumar Sanu. The USP of the song is
its simplicity and the perfect lyrics by legendary Javed Akhtar. This
Anu Malik composition has its own charm and includes the most important
scales of a complete Indian wedding including shyness, various rituals,
and most importantly love among everyone.
Aaye Ho Meri Zindagi Mein - Raja Hindustani
lyrics gel extremely well with the splendid vocals of Alka Yagnik. Its
ghazal-styled beats are laced with a shaadi interlude which compliments
the colorful middle class wedding shown in the Aamir Khan & Karisma
Kapoor starrer, Raja Hindustani. 'Mere dil mein yoon hi rehna, tum pyaar pyaar banke, aaye ho meri zindagi mein tum bahaar banke'. The
song depicts the wishes of a girl who is getting married, to her groom
who has always given her happiness, and hopes for the same in the future
Hamesha Tumko Chaha - Devdas
heart wrenching track has used high voltage wedding drama to portray
the feelings of the protagonists in the Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya
starrer, Devdas to the fullest. The lyrics, penned by Nusrat Badr
are very deep and scream about losing your most priceless possession,
your childhood love, someone without whom life cannot even be imagined.
The magic is created by singers, Kavita Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan.
Together, they have done full justice to the song, and in a beautiful
manner that suits the mood of lovers who were once bound to get married,
and are now parting ways.
Sajda - My Name is Khan
list like this would never be complete without the mention of the
legendary couple SRK-Kajol. "Sajda" is much more than just another sufi
composition. The melodious voices of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Richa
Sharma give the charismatic effects which sets up the tone for marriage.
The song begins with an on-going mehendi ceremony where the bride is
applying henna on her hands and the family enjoying themselves by
dancing and eating classic Indian mithai. It is then followed by
the wedding sequence and the couple moving into their new home. A very
decent portrayal of a small gathering, yet an event that is made
memorable. The song is composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, and is one such
song among millions that is loved by all.
These euphoric songs
from various brilliant movies of Bollywood are suitable to fit
every situation in a wedding, from the mehendi, to sangeet, and bidaai
as well. They not only make us evocative about the most auspicious day
in our lives but also makes the wedding a memorable event to be
cherished for years. Other such joyous songs include "Joote do Paise lo"
from desi megahit Hum Aapke Ke Hain Kaun, "Chote Chote Bhaiyoon Ke" from the family-oriented Hum Saath-Saath Hain, and"Mehendi Hai Rachnewali"from Zubeida.
this heavy dose, we at BollyCurry hope you enjoyed this innovative
idea, and also await your feedback on which wedding songs you enjoy and
what kind of reviews you would like to hear from us. Adios Amigos!
