Remember, those romantic moments when you felt the emotions, tenderness, and love stirred by that special song that made the entire experience one of the most beautiful moments of your life? You’re the first to admit that falling in love can be as easy as falling off a log but dedicating a love song which is not cheesy or obvious is a challenge that the greatest singers have wrestled with since the first caveperson grunted a serenade to their beloved. But Bollywood has probably mastered the art of coming up with the tracks to give your fed-up-of-failed-Tinder-dates souls, a hope that soul mates are real and very much approachable. As an ode to all the happy vibes, on a dreary Sunday afternoon, we’ve decided to scrounge through the archives and look at top 10 romantic Bollywood songs in 2017.
Singer- Atif Aslam
Lyricist- Irshad Kamil
I`m sure you guys can`t get enough of this track from Tiger Zinda Hai! Atif Aslam spills magic everywhere with his melodious voice yet again! Shot in the visually stunning, snow-capped and pristine Austrian location, this song combines Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif`s breath-taking chemistry with the indulgent lavishness of a classic love ballad. Just turn the volume high and get lost in utter romance for 3:04 minutes.
Okay, I shamelessly admit, I`m a HUGE Atif Aslam fan and I can listen to him sing all day!
Singer- Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Lyricist- Fana Buland Shehri
Yes! You must have been playing this soulful track from the movie Baadshaho on loop. This ghazal is crooned by the soulful vocal of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. This song showcases the blossoming romance between an average guy and the heir of a Rajasthani royal family. Ajay Devgan and Ileana D`Cruz`s chemistry is on fire throughout the song and reaches its peak in the final seconds of the song. This scintillating track 2:30min is bound to stir your souls!
Singer- Arijit Singh and Harshdeep Kaur
Lyricist- Amitabh Bhattacharya
You must`ve started humming this song by now! This song is from Shahrukh Khan’s movie Raees and The king of romance looks all dreamy in this song. Adorned by the syrupy voice of Arijit Singh this song has romance in-house, in bath, in desert, basically everywhere. You can`t stop yourself from gushing over SRK and Mahira`s effortless chemistry. This soothing melody will surely touch the right chords of your heart!
Singer- Arijit Singh
Lyricist- Manoj Muntashir
Your heart starts melting the moment you hear Arijit Singh singing! This track is from the movie Half Girlfriend. In this three-minute long song, surprisingly more than Madhav Jha, it is Riya who looks love-struck. Also, by the end of the song, Shraddha Kapoor is the one who is lost in love and can`t bear the pain of separation from Madhav who loved her unconditionally. Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor`s burning chemistry in this song will melt your heart right away!
Singer- Ash King
Lyricist- Arafat Mehmood
Have you heard this dreamy melodious track from the movie Half Girlfriend? When you are in love, pehli baarish is something you would want to cherish with your partner. The song starts with the tunes of santoor and it sets the tone and then it oscillates between santoor and violin. The lyric is quite catchy in the main verse and compels us to hum it. The pensive piece of music showcases Shraddha Kapoor getting drenched while Arjun can’t take his eyes off her, also bits and pieces of their characters, which is indeed refreshing. It is definitely a monsoon song for all the starry-eyed people out there. Romance in the air!
Singer- Akhil Sachdeva
Lyricist- Akhil Sachdeva
Didn`t we all fell in love with this song from Badrinath ki Dulhaniya? Akhil Sachdeva`s rendition of Humsafar has made our hearts skip a beat. Relying majorly on heavy-string, this song is so beautiful and full of soul that it managed to tug at your heartstrings. The song takes you on a romantic stroll with Vaidehi and Badri, as their love blossoms through small rickety lanes of a small town. This song speaks about that one sweetheart in your life who you love beyond your own life. With a soaring hook, this song will make your heart take flight!
Singer- Jigar Saraiya and Sanah Moidutty
Lyricist- Kausar Munir
Some people out there must have dedicated this song from the movie Meri Pyari Bindu to their sweeties. Sanah Moidutty`s breezy vocals and Jigar Saraiya`s soulful voice camouflage the side effects of love and project it as candyfloss and bubblegum. This song throws light on the phase when the lovers start falling in love, deeply and irrevocably. Ayushman infuses every frame with freshness owing to his infectious energy and here his warm grin flashed like the crack of dawn. The track talks of the intoxicating and heady feeling of love. This is one hangover, of heady intense love, which no one wants to get rid of! This is a `sweet` reminder of love`s toxicity!
Singer- Jubin Nautiyal and Neeti Mohan
Lyricist- Junaid Wasi
Didn`t we all smile when Akshay tells Huma that there is no other husband in Lucknow, who will be making a whiskey peg and offering it to his wife? What I loved the most about Bawra Mann is the fact it has such a loving vibe between Akshay and Huma. They look so damn good together and what`s better than translating their chemistry with a rhythm like this which only spells love. Bawra Mann is a lovely romantic number, which is soft and melodious. It is the kind of soothing number you listen to as you drive back home after a long day!
Singer- Jubin Nautiyal
The makers of Kaabil showcased this soulful track, which features the lead pair Hrithik and Yami. Kuch Din is warm at its core and also subtly hints at the impending misfortune lurking somewhere behind the candy floss romance between the lead couple. This song will make you fall in love all over again!
Singer- Atif Aslam
Lyricist- Amitabh Bhattacharya
Atif Aslam`s voice lends this song from the movie Tubelight the right amount of warmth and emotion. The lyrics of the song have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya and Pritam`s music weaves them all together into a beautiful melody. The song explores Khan`s camaraderie with Martin and reveals the co-dependence that they share and cherish. Seeing Salman Khan getting all emotional will melt your heart for sure!
