While nonsensical lyrics and jarring beats may be the order of the day, there still exist those few gems on the Bollywood music scene who can transport you to another dimension altogether.
Toasting the multi-hued spirit of friendship may sound like a tough task, but our Bollywood musical geniuses are more than up for the challenge. Check out these seven Bollywood songs that’ll make you fall for your friends all over again:
Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge, Sholay
Tell us you didn’t see this one coming. Tell us you didn’t read the title and mentally hum the first line of this Kishore Kumar masterpiece. Go ahead, we dare you. We double dare you.
Yaaron Dosti, Rockford
Because we’ve yet to come across a college farewell in the entire documented history of mankind that was completed without a tonedeaf rendition of this song. After all, yeh na ho toh kya phir bolo yeh zindagi hai. KK, take a bow, you genius.
Dil Chahta Hai
If you aren’t out there making memories with your best buds already, allow the title track of Farhan Akhtar’s 2001 cult classic to send you on a one-way trip down memory lane.
Dil Chahta Hai
Daaru Desi, Cocktail
Closely followed by its fellow song, Tumhi Ho Bandhu with its lyrics ‘Jab yaar kare parwah meri, mujhe kya parwah iss duniya ki.’ Cheers Pritam, for spiking all our friendships with a liberal dose of daaru desi with this peppy composition.
Jaane Kyun, Dostana
B’coz life sucks, sh*t happens and sometimes on those days when everything seems to be going downhill, the only thing that can get you through is that deep-rooted assurance that long as you’ve got your best buds around, you’ll be alright.
Jaane Nahi Denge Tujhe, 3 Idiots
Powerful lyrics, a resounding background score and Sonu Nigam’s poignant vocals which tug at your heartstrings and all but break the dam. Lend an ear to Jaane Nahi Denge Tujhe to recount those friends whom you’d stake your life for, and those who’d do the same for you, but make sure to stock up on the tissues before you hit play.
Hai Junoon, New York
Ever get that euphoric high when you’re around your besties that makes no mountain seem too high to scale and no problem too huge? You’ll have no trouble relating to this amazing composition by Pritam then.
