Bollywood is not always about masala or random entertainment. Just like life, it too is a perfect combination of stupidity and intellect. When we talk too much about the entertainment quotient of bollywood or spicy news making stuffs, the deeper aspects often remain least discussed. This line-up is about top bollywood philosophical songs with deep life lessons. In an era of music when the musicians are depending upon just tune setting raps, item songs, or song remakes/remix, this line-up can be thoroughly refreshing.
Aye Bhai, zara dekh ke chalo:
It’s not a song just about the melody or something like listen-and- forget type; these are the songs in which lyrics are celebrated in harmony with music. The song is equally great as of the movie it belongs to. A typical materialistic mind might perceive it as another fun song. But, if you sit with a calm mind and observe the lyrics, the deeper meaning of the song will start making you feel amazed about it. On this context, it’s pretty much equivalent to the film itself. Just observe the line “ Tu jaha aaya hai vo tera ghar nahi gav nahi, Gali nahi kucha nahi rasta nahi basti nahi, Duniya hai”, saying nothing is yours where you have arrived; it’s simply the “world”, or you can observe the line “ aur pyare duniya yah ek sarkas hai, Aur is sarkas me bade ko bhi chote ko bhi, Khare ko bhi khote ko bhi ,mote ko bhi patle ko bhi, Niche se upar ko upar se niche ko Barabar aana jana padta hai “ such amazingly kill your ego that you can’t even notice. That’s the beauty of the song! It’s the most philosophical bollywood song that has been ever made in the history of tinsel town.
Toota toota Ek Parinda:
If you feel heartbroken about some reason in life or have lost the trust in God or life, this song would be a perfect recommendation. It’s sure to help you gather some inspiration and confront the challenges of life, and start from very beginning. Kailash Kher deserves all commendations for the song. In fact, he bagged Star Screen Award in Best Male Playback Singer category.
Kisi ki Muskurahaton Pe:
If there is any bollywood line that gives the best definition of life, then there can’t be any better than this song. Mukesh will remain alive forever in our hearts giving the incredible voice of him in the song. Wish every one of us at least try sometimes about living a life the way it teaches, moving ahead of the materialistic desires, so that the earth could be a much better place to live in.
Ek din bik jayega, matee ke mol:
This is another great bollywood philosophy song that defines the true definition of life or teaches the real art of living this life full of uncertainty. Well, a song that involves the greats of music arena, starting from Mukesh, Basu Manohari, Mohammed Rafi, to Sushma Shrestha is obvious to be this awesome. Though these songs are beyond awards, still it is here to mention that it has bagged well deserved Film fare Award for Best Male Playback Singer, and Film fare Award for Best Lyricist.
Zindagi Kaisee Hai Paheli:
It’s perhaps the touchiest song in Bollywood from one of the truly emotional movies “Anand’, defining the uncertainty of life in such a beautiful fashion. Legendry Manna Dey’s voice is simply magical to calm someone even the most egoistic person on the earth.
Man Ke Mat Pe Mat Chaliyo:
Someone who has conquered his mind has conquered the world. This one of the best bollywood philosophical song is all about this. Sung by Rahet Fateh Ali Khan, this song so beautifully talks about the most valuable philosophy of life! The song is from critically acclaimed movie “Aakrosh”.
All is well:
A bollywood philosophical song is not necessary to be serious; it can be funky as well. ‘All is well’ from historic bollywood film ‘3 idiots’ teach you how to be happy amidst all odds. It’s a perfectly rejuvenating song that can effortlessly lessen your life stress. Sung by legendry Sonu Nigam (also by Shaan) it’s a song much relevant for contemporary people.
Maula Mere Lele Meri Jaan:
What a touchy song is this! Krishna Beura and Salim Merchant have just taken the song to an altogether different level. ‘Maula Mere Lele Meri Jaan lyrics’ is all about the great Indian philosophy and value. It’s from Shahrukh Khan Starrer super hit film Chak De India.
Mere mann ye bata de/Mitwa:
The song is from Karan Johar’s “Kabhi Alvida na Kehna”, a movie that has least resemblance with real life or a movie that very few people can relate to. But, this song “Mere mann ye bata de tu” is something different. Keep it separate from the film or its story, and observe the lyrics while listening to the beautifully composed song, you can thoroughly realise that it’s moreover a nice philosophical bollywood song, rather than just another sad song. Renowned lyricist Javed Akhtar has penned the song, music of which has been given by the legendry trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. It has been performed by Caralisa, Shafqat Amanat Ali, and Shankar Mahadevan.
