Some Bollywood movies went un-noticed because they were just so kaafi average(read: shitty) but they did have A+ soundtracks and here is a list of our such favorite ones.
Наpру Ending 2014
I mean come on half of us didn’t even watch it till interval cuz it was THAT bad. weird storyline & some real bad acting! But ufff its music album is so so beautiful! ‘Mileya Mileya’ is literally soul-stirring with Rekha Bhardwaj, Priya & Jigar Saraiya’s beautiful vocals & melancholic music. And ‘Jaise mera tu’ is so00000 heartwarming with the perfect lyrics & music. ‘Haseena tu kamina main’ & ‘G phaad ke’ are some real good party jams!
I don’t think so most of us have seen this film even? It wasn’t as good, and never got any hype. But THAT BEAUTIFUL ALBUM ohmygod. “Bheegi Bheegi from this is still a A1 sad boi hr song *instant waterworks* Zubeen Garg Ya ali’ is one of the most amazing yet hard-hitting songs ever. KK’s Tu hi meri shab hai’ is the OG song forever- the “oo00hooo o000hooo” chorus hits different.
This aesthetically pleasing movie that bombed very heavy cuz of its eh storyline and way too long runtime! but its music. Its damned music. That’s where the love began. Album by Pritam is its X-factor till date. The title track will take a permanent place in your heart with its melodious music & lovely lyrics. Foot-tapping songs like ‘First class’ & ‘Airaa Gairaa’ are superrbbbb to jam to! Ghar more pardesiya’ & Tabaah ho gaye’ with the classical music touch are heavenly :))
Jab Harry Met Sejal 2017
Another average film by genius Imtiaz Ali (wish he bounce back soon do) with a pretty forgettable plot & acting. Tho its music le has a special place in everyone’s heart. “Radha’ & ‘Beech beech mein’ are like the best songs to dance to. Arijit’s ‘Hawayein’ is obviously everyone’s “looking-out-of-the- window-while-travelling” wala gaana. ‘Ghar’ is like a warm hug & Mohit Chauhan singing Cakes it feel so serene. Also umm ‘Phurr’ from this film is by Diplo??!
Chalo, I’m glad it exists only cuz of the golden soundtrack!
Roy was partly chaotic and partly lame! what a colossal waste of talent attached. BUT
“Sooraj dooba hai’ was literally the song of 2015!!! I mean it music fills you with instant dopamine as soon as it starts, and by the chorus you def start doing the hookstep. Ankit Tiwari’s two musical gems in this movie, Tu hai ki nahi’ & “Boond boond’, are so soothing istg. And ofc KK’s brilliant Yaara Re’ was also in this movie <3
Kill Dil 2014
A great cast, average storyline and the film bombed it was bad anyway. Tbh it had great music tho, which deserved a better movie. ‘Sajde’ with lyrics by Gulzar & Arijit singing it is so so heartbreakingly beautiful :”) Its title track is very catchy & fun, one keeps humming it all day even if they hear it once. ‘Nakhriley’ & ‘Sweeta’ are the cutest songs ever!!! “Bol beliya’ is BOMB af with phenomenal vocals & killer techno music.
Baar Baar Dekho 2016
Bhai ek baar dekh li kaafi hai. I love the fact they tried to experiment, respect for that tbh but thoda sa effort bhi daalna hota hai. Could have been so much better. But its songs have a special place on everyone’s playlist for sure! With shaadi/party bops like Kaala chashma’ & ‘Nachde ne saare’ to jam to and Bilal Saeed ‘Teri khair mangdi”- the album had a perfect mix of everything. Sau Aasmaan’ has such summery happy vibes with its bful vocals & music. And ofc, Kho gaye hum kahan’ has everyone’s heart for its calming vocals by Jasleen Royal & Prateek Kuhad :”)
Love Aaj Kal 2020
Ugh. Unbearable movie with Sara’s “tum mujhe tangg karne lage ho” cringe inducing acting & same old storyline. Randeep Hooda was the only saving grace in it. The music album tho had the genius combination of Pritam, Amitabh Bhattacharya & Imtiaz Ali which made it brilliant. Arijit Singh kills it with ‘Shayad & “Rahogi Meri’ which legit tug at heartstrings. “Mehrama’ is a tearjerker 101 with its bful lyrics and music. ‘Haan main galat’ is an instant mood lifter. KK Aur Tanha’ is good too but the new ‘Ye Dooriyan’ is nowhere close to the original.
Bombay Velvet 2015
Yeah the movie was terrible, it didn’t meet the expectations but damn its iconic music album deserves its own fanclub. With 14 songs in this Amit Trivedi composed album, its like an ode to the Jazz era Bombay. Songs like ‘Fifi’ and ‘Sylvia’ will transport you to the 60s with its authentic jazz music., The sensual ‘Mohabbat buri bimari’ is perfect! ‘Behroopia’ & ‘Darbaan’ are also two gems in the album. And the almost 9 min long ‘Aam Hindustani’ is a song par extraordinary with its authentic music & lyrics <3
gtg, listen to all of them on loop now !
