bring to you a few of those songs which have highlighted the sentiment
of rivalry; they not only keep up the sportsmanship but also pushe
people towards their best.
first song that fills up one's mind when it comes to competing is "Aa Dekhen
Zara". Originally from the movie Rocky
the song features Sanjay Dutt
and Reena Roy grooving against Tina Munim
Kapoor in a dance competition. Sung in the beautiful voices of the
maestros Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar, the song livens up every
the body, forcing the feet to tap of their own accord. It is one of the
commonly heard songs in the finale of many reality television shows and
such was its success that the track was remixed in the 2009 Neil Nitin
Mukesh starrer, of the same title as the song.
Kisi Se Kam Nahin"
up on the list is another evergreen tune that is stuck in our minds - the
title song of the 1977 film Hum Kisi Se
. In the form of a qawali,
it was a big
retro hit in the vocals of the legendary Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle.
During the song, Rishi Kapoor
is seen encouraging his
ladylove Zeenat Amaan to break free from the shackles of restriction
the society and her father. He announces his love for her by calling out
front of all and expects her reciprocate his love in a similar manner.
the movie Josh
(2000) built on the
founding stone of rivalry, it would be odd not to have a song that depicts
the same feeling. The song "Sailaru Sailare" is beautifully picturised on the
streets of old Goa, with the two rival gangs challenging and taunting each other.
While Mano and Suresh Peters left no stone unturned in making their voices
bring out the emotion, Shah Rukh Khan
and Sharad Kapoor along with the other
actors, portrayed the truth behind the a real gang.

struggle, so as to achieve victory over their rivals. One such inspiring song
is "Chale Chalo" from the Oscar nominated and critically
acclaimed film Lagaan
vocals have been lent by the God of music, A.R. Rahman
and the very talented Srinivas. Through the
song, Aamir Khan
helps his fellow players believe in themselves and in the power of their unity in order
to win the match.
a series of solemn songs, the list comes to an end with a fun song that gets
you grooving right away. The song "Thug Le" from the 2011 release Ladies vs Ricky Bahl
talks about the
inherent rivalry in every human being right from their birth; that of girls versus
boys. The song features the effervescent Ranveer Singh
and beautiful Anushka Sharma
along with Parineeti
Chopra, Dipannita Sharma and Aditi Sharma
. Vishal Dadlani
and Shweta Pandit
