“Gulabo” and “Nazdeekiyaan” from Shaandaar
The 2015 movie Shaandaar starring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt failed to impress the audience. But the songs did exceptionally well, especially Gulabo and Nazdeekiyaan.
“Ae Nazneen Suno Na” from Dil Hi Dil Mein
The possibility of you remembering a movie titled Dil Hi Dil Mein may be slim, the songs “Ae Nazneen Suno Na” and “Roja Roja” are etched in our minds. The 2000 movie revolved around Ram who helps the needy and deserving whenever he could. He helps Raja to find his love and eventually realise that the girl is his own daughter, Roja.
“Bol Na Halke Halke” from Jhoom Barabar
While the 2007 movie Jhoom Barabar Jhoom failed to create magic, the songs “Bol Na Halke Halke” and “Jhoom Barabar” became everyone’s favourite tracks.
Panchi Nadiya Pawan Ke Jhonke from Refugee
The movie Refugee, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, failed to leave an impact on the audience, but the lyrics of the song “Panchi Nadiya Pawan Ke Jhonke” was loved by almost everyone for its lyrics and music.
“Maula Mere Maula” from Anwar
“Tose Naina Lage” and “Maula Mere Maula” was played on loop after the movie Anwar. The film starred Nauheed Cyrusi and Siddharth Koirala, and wasn’t received well by the audience.
“Chura Lo Na Dil Mera” from Kareeb
The songs of 1998 movie Kareeb, starring Bobby Deol and Neha (Shabana Raza), captured all the right emotions and made almost every ’90s kid fall in love. Chura Lo Na Dil Mera” and “Chori Chori Jab Nazrein Mili” are feel-good tracks from a movie that tanked at the box office.
