BollyCurry welcomes you with yet another musical feature, cherishing the golden times of our Bollywood industry. The 80s is a period where talented singers and music directors attempted to give famous Bollywood movies a new definition; and boy, did they succeed! Movies were more interesting and appealing for the audience with their alluring music sequences and item songs. The audience was served with much more entertainment in the second half of the decade. From item songs to ghazals and romantic numbers to the sad tracks; all were accepted and appreciated with full zeal by the people of our nation. This month, as we celebrate the Golden Era of our Hindi Cinema, BollyCurry brings to you the musical compilation of top chart buster songs from the 1980s.
Take a deep breath and sit back as we take you down memory lane, reminiscing the era wherein the Indian movie industry was enjoying the limelight with various actors and singers of yesteryear who crossed milestones in their careers which are remembered even today.

Over time, it is easy to forget things that are a decade or two old. However, undoubtedly these chart buster songs have paved their way into many hearts and have remained there since. Other celebrated songs from this period include "Woh Kagaz Ki Kashti" (Aaj), "Tujhse Naraz Nahi Zindagi" (Masoom), and "Dard E Dil" (Karz), among others. Not only did these songs serve as an inspiration for the many hit tracks that have been composed and remixed in newer movies afterwards, but they have also helped artists and the audiences unwind and relish the soulful melodies of the golden era.

    U haven't even included the Film Fare winning movie of 1988! Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak! There was such a change in songs after that movie...of course I don't find my favourite!

    One more memorable song from this period is:
    Yaar Bina Chain Kahan Re ... from Saaheb. And what to say about it's popularity ... it still remains one of the all-time favourite on late-night radio stations!
