Countdown - Part II

14. Dil Jo Bhi Kahey Maane
Movie: Dil Jo Bhi Kahey
Music Director: Shankar-Ehsan-Loy
Artist: Shaan

This is a really fun song! I liked it the moment that I heard it.

13. Piyu Bole
Movie: Parineeta

Music Director: Shantanu Moitra
Artists: Sonu Nigam & Shreya Ghoshal

I had to decide which songs from ‘Parineeta’ I like more, "Piyu Bole" or "Kaisi Yeh Paheli", and the former won hands down! It is such a quaint song. And Saif Ali Khan and Vidya Balan look so good together; it just adds to the song.

12. I Just Wanna Spend My Life With You
Movie: Neal ‘n’ Nikki

Music: Salim-Sulaiman
Artists: Clinton & Dominique Cerejo

I have not seen this movie yet, not because of all the bad reviews that I had heard from people around me, but because I had no time to watch it. Despite all the bad reviews I still wanna see this movie, I mean, how bad can it really be?! Anyway, however bad this movie may be, the songs are really good. Right from the title track to “Haiyo Haiyo Rabba! I’m in Love”. But the song that I like the best from this movie is “I Just Wanna Spend My Life With You”. I have been told that it plays when the titles roll. This song can put many a boyband to shame! Clinton has such a smooth silky voice, and though the entire song is sung in English, he does not put on a fake Umree-can accent.

11. Huzoor-e-ala
Movie: Page 3
Music Director: Shameer Tandon
Artist: Asha Bhosle

This song scores points with me at once ‘cause the incomparable Asha Bhosle has sung it! Just her presence is enough to send the likeability factor of a song up a few notches. Not only is this song beautifully rendered but it also has a very haunting melody.

10. Naam Adaa Likhna
Movie: Yahaan

Music Director: Shantanu Moitra
Artists: Shaan & Shreya Ghoshal

This is one of those ‘quietly romantic’ songs. No screaming from the roofs about the physical attributes of the loved ones! This song is filled with beautiful symbolism instead.

9. Kahan Ho Tum Mujhe Bataao

Movie: U, Bomzi and Me
Artist: Neeraj Shridhar (Bombay Vikings)

This is another song with a haunting melody. It is just WOW! This one too I liked as soon as I heard it! It is a sad kinda song, but the rhythm is upbeat!

8. Tinka Tinka

Movie: Karam
Music Director: Vishal-Shekhar
Artist: Alisha Chinai

This is one of the most beautiful songs that I have ever h
eard. It’s sad that it hasn’t even gotten its due yet. Alisha Chinai has outdone herself in this song.

7. Le Chalein Le Chalein
Movie: My Brother Nikhil
Music Director: Vivek Phillip (Not sure of this either)
Artist: KK

Each time I hear this song I get a bit misty-eyed, because then I remember the movie it is a part of. It is, and should remain, one of the best
movies that the Hindi Film Industry has ever made. And this song has been sung so beautifully by KK. There is another version by Sunidhi Chauhan too. But I like the KK version more.

6. Hum Hain Is Pal Yahaan
Movie: Kisna

Music Director: A. R. Rahman
Artists: Udit Narayan & Madhushree

The movie apparently sucked big time, but this song is just beautiful! Another haunting melody.

Hey Nikki!
Am glad you are enjoying all the Hindi posts! :)

Hi Puneet!
Thank God someone recognized all my hard work!! ;) It does take time but I think it's all worth it, right?
Nice of you to list out your favs. :)
Looks like only you like "saara jahan kahe ishq hai jhoota"!!
I don't know why, but I still wanna watch Neal n Nikki. Now I wanna see how bad it really is!! :))

Hi Manish!
Glad that you heard "Tinka tinka" and liked it. The song has been grossly neglected! Even I've missed out on some good songs in my list!

Hi Cheesy!
I guess quite a few people do like and appreciate "Tinka tinka". Good! :D

Hi Monk!
Ok, I believe everyone who says that Neal n Nikki sucks to high heavens. Now jsut wanna see how bad! :D Maybe I have a death wish!

Hi Arz000n!
Hehehe! Your reasons for appreciation will of course be thoda hatke! ;)
Am doing fine!
