Krishna's naughty nature has never been relegated to simply
the words of stories, but has also found a place in many Bollywood
movies. Throughout the ages, there have been numerous songs celebrating
the festival of the Lord's birth and the Lord himself in his various
elegant avatars. BollyCurry brings you a list of a few of our favorite songs from the new millennium about Kanhaiya. (in no particular order).
1. Radha Kaise Na Jale
Movie: Lagaan (2001)
While not about Janmashtmi itself, this catchy song shows Radha's jealousy on seeing Krishna flirt with the gopis and highlights Kanhaiya's relationship with Radha.
2. Go Go Govinda
Movie: OMG: Oh My God! (2012)
Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed
of the most recent songs to celebrate Janmashtmi, "Go Go Govinda" has
rapidly become all the rage. We're sure this song will be played
everywhere once the celebrations begin, not just due to the fast beats,
but also because of the uniqueness in it's melody.
One of the first songs to come to mind when we think of recent songs on Krishna would be the songs from 2005's Kisna
. The allusion to the Radha-Krishna love story, the catchy lyrics and the rhythmical beats has many automatically singing along.
4. Man Mohana
Movie: Jodha Akbar (2008)
meant to be spiritual, "Man Mohana" is a sweet song with a simple
composition. Not a song one generally sings along to, but fully
devotional in lyrics and onscreen, which usually leaves the listener in a
deep thought of devotion.
5. Maiya Yashoda
Movie: Jhoota Hi Sahi (2010)
Lyrics: Abbas Tyrewala
fun and catchy song that highlights Krishna's naughty nature in his
childhood, a nature that was both playful and flirty. There are many
versions of this song, and all of them are equally entertaining. You
will find yourself tapping your feet to them all. We sure did.
the month of celebrating the glorious birth of Lord Krishna has
arrived, BollyCurry hopes that our unique collection on His famous songs
help you enjoy and make the most of this festival! These are only a very few of the countless numbers of songs dedicated to Krishna, so let us know which ones are your personal favorites! And with this, we
wish everyone a very happy Janamashtami!
