Bollywood and romance go hand in hand. Few Bollywood movies do not have romantic numbers, and the practice has continued over the years. If you pay more attention, you might notice that the Hindi film industry has a special fondness for trains.
Romance and pick-up lines with women on the train have always been top priority in B-town. From superstar Shah Rukh dancing with Malaika Arora Khan in Chaiya Chaiya to veteran actor Rajesh Khanna trying to impress Sharmila Tagore in Mele Sapnon Ki Rani, Bollywood’s relationship with trains has a long history.
Here is a list of five iconic Bollywood songs that revolve around trains.
Chaiyya Chaiyya – Dirce:
Perhaps one of the greatest and grooviest soundtracks in the Hindi film industry, Chaiyaa Chaiyaa dominated the chartbusters in the 90’s. The foot tapping number had to match the beat to the energetic vocals of Sapna Awasti and Skwinder Singh. The famous scene was filmed on a train in Ooty.
Casto Mazza – Parinita:
Another epic song, Kasto Matza, beautifully sung by musical maestro Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam, portrays a train journey like never before. Saif her ali her khan her secret lover Vidya untamed feelings as she goes home to meet with Balan is very is drawn properly.
Dhadak Dhadak – Bunty Aur Babli
With an ace performance by rumored ex-flame Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan, Dadak Dadak in the movie Banti Aul Babri still makes us throw our beds out and dance our hearts out. It’s a song that resonates in the heart, as if inviting you to follow the trajectory of your dreams.
Hai Aapna Dil Toh Awara – Solva Saal
Dev Anand seamlessly depicts a carefree man when crossing a hill in the song of Hai Aapna Dil Toh Awara. With the hilarious quirks of a talented actor and excellent phrasing, his Hemant Kumar songs are our go-to travel songs. Dev Anand’s flirtatious attempts to woo Waheeda Rehman are perfectly on point.
Mere Sapno Ki Raani – Aradhana
The list of Bollywood songs that revolve around trains would be incomplete without adding this cult classic Kishore Kumar song. Mere Sapno Ki Rani may still find a place in playlists in the 21st century thanks to its great lyrics. A secret romance brewing between Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore lends flavor to the exuberant number against the backdrop of a Darjeeling toy train.
