Soothing & Full of Hope Bollywood Songs

Music is what connects us all. There are so many types of music one can listen to; from the falling in love to the heartbroken and to the motivational songs playlist. I love listening to good lyrics and good tune Hindi, English and Punjabi songs. Spreading some positivity by sharing my 7 favourite soothing and easy-breezy songs.

i) Jeete Hain Chal – Neerja

Sung by Kavita Seth, composed by Vishal Khurrana and written by Prasoon Joshi, Jeete hain Chal is one of my favourites. It starts with the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra and the lyrics of the song are so beautiful that they fuel you up on the days you feel low and fill you with all the positive energy.

Some of the lines I love from the song are :

Marna kyun, jee lena
Boondon ko pee lena
Tere hi sapno ki baarish hai

Paaniyon ko raste tu banane de,
Roshni ke peeche khud ko jaane de

Kehta yeh pal
Khud se nikal
Jeete hain chal

ii) Manja – Kai Po Che

Sung and composed by Amit Trivedi and written by Swanand Kirkire, the song became one of my favourites when I watched the movie recently. The lyrics of the song are so beautiful and on point that they give you so much strength and hope in life.

Lines I loved from the song are :

Soyi takdirein jaga denge
Kal ka ambar bhi jhuka denge
Ho ho hai jazba, ha ha hai jazba
Suljha lenge uljhe rishton ka manja

iii) Allah Ke Bande – Waisa Bhi Hota Hai II

Sung by Kailash Kher, composed by Vishal-Shekhar and written by Vishal Dadlani, isn’t this one everybody’s go to song when they are looking for something soothing and hopeful?

My favourite lyrics from the song are :

Girta hua woh aasma se
Aa kar gira zaameen par
Khwabon mein phir bhi
Baadal hi the woh kehta raha magar
Ke allah ke bande hasde
Allah ke bande

iv) Kinare – Queen

Sung by Mohan Kanan, composed by Amit Trivedi and written by Anvita Dutt Guptan it is one beautiful but underrated song we missed out in the blockbuster movie Queen when all our focus went on the songs London Thumakda and O Gujariya. I love the guitar tune in the song and insist you to listen this one.

Lyrics I like the most from this song are :

Auron se kya
Khud hi se, poonch lenge raahein
Yahin kahin, maujon mein hi
Dhoond lenge hum

Boondon se hi, toh hain wahin
Baandh lenge leherein
Paeron tale jo bhi mile
Baandh lenge hum.. Kinare

v) Kun Faya Kun – Rockstar

Sung by A.R Rehman, Javed Ali and Mohit Chauhan, composed by A.R Rehman and written by Irshaad Kamil, this one is my go to song whenever I feel everything is falling apart. Kun Faya Kun means “be, and it is.” It actually is a Quran verse and is referred 5 times in Quran. It is referred to symbolise god’s creative power and is about God’s will and absolute control over every reaction. (Googled!)

Although I do not understand much of the song’s lyrics, it’s still very soothing to hear. Lyrics I loved from the song are :

Tu hai mujh mein samaaya kahaan leke mujhe aaya
Main hoon tujh mein samaaya
Tere peechhe chala aaya
Tera hi main ik saaya
Tune mujhko banaya
Main to jag ko naa bhaya
Tune gale se lagaya
Haq tu hi hai khudaya
Sach tu hi hai khudaya

vi) Phir Se Udd Chala – Rockstar

Sung by Mohit Chauhan, composed by A.R Rehman and written by Irshaad Kamil, this one is another gem from the movie rockstar. Some movies are so wonderful that the whole songs album is amazing, Rockstar is one of those. Don’t you agree?

Lyrics I loved from the song are :

Mitti jaise sapne ye kitna bhi palko se jhaado
Phir aa jaate hain
Kitne saare sapne kya kahoon kis tarah se maine
Tode hain chhode… hain kyun
Phir sath chalein mujhe leke ude ye kyun

vii) Iktara – Wake Up Sid

Sung by Kavita Seth, composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and written by Javed Akhtar, Iktara is my all time favourite. (So is the movie and so is the song’s male version, Literally love it!)

Lyrics I love from the song are :

Sun rahi hoon sudh budh khoke koi main kahani
Poori kahani hai kya kise hai pata
Main to kisiki hoke yeh bhi na jaani
Ruth hai ye do pal ki ya rehgi sada

What next after happy Bollywood endings?

I am a complete movie junkie, can literally watch all genres till the time the movie is entertaining; be it based on a true story or something which is a complete imagination. If we are taking a break from our boring-hectic-monotonous or whatever our lives are, the least the movie should offer is that it should be entertaining.

So here I am, listing 4 Bollywood movies which I am pretty sure most of you all must have watched, re-watched time and again, giving it a thought that what would have happened after the movie ends on a happy note. (Unless it’s a Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie.)

Jab We Met – Who doesn’t remember the full of energy Geet and the cute but shy Aditya from the movie? You fall in love with the Imitiaz Ali movie when Geet brings back all the colours in Aditya’s life by making him realise to live life to the fullest, follow what the heart says and Aditya does the same to her when life hits her on a low. The two eventually fall in love in the process, get married in the ending and are seen to receive blessings from Geet’s grandfather along with their two daughters.

But what next? Maybe the couple lives a well-flourished life, Geet continuing her teaching job somewhere in Bombay and Aditya growing his industry manifolds, both of them supporting each other in their professions.

But when they are back to Bhatinda for celebrating their 10th or 15th anniversary at her parent’s place and after the celebrations end, when all of them sit together after the heavy dinner (you know how big fat Punjabi families are), maybe the question of Anshuman pops again by one of the family members asking his whereabouts. And that is when Geet and Aditya share the actual story with her family and they end up having a good laugh and concluding that things happen for a reason and Anshuman was just a source so that Aditya and Geet could end up together…maybe!

Band Baaja Baaraat – I love this movie so much that most of the times I play my favourite scenes along while having food; the scenes where Bitto and Shruti build Shaadi Mubarak from the scratch, where Shaadi Mubarak falls off because of mix-up of “pyaar and vyapar” and where how they finally patch up to recover their losses. Bitto and Shruti finally end up together by confessing their love for each other, deciding to not leave their partnership this time and get married.

But again what next? Maybe after their wedding they get back to establish Shaadi Mubarak and make it a much more bigger name in Delhi. But that is when Chirkut Chetan calls them, tells them that he wants to get married to a girl just like Shruti and this is when she hooks him up with her younger sister.

They go to Dubai to get the couple married, do all the preparations for their wedding and eventually decide to establish Shaadi Mubarak there and call their parents to settle with them….who knows! (Chanda Narang can finally prosper, now that the honest and efficient duo has left the country!)

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara – A story about 3 friends Arjun, Imran and Kabir who go to Spain for Kabir’s bachelor trip and strike off three adventurous activities from their list, each contributing one. (Sorry I am getting off topic, but where do we find such friends?) The fun the 3 friends have, the silly pranks they do, the beautiful places they go to and a little bit of lessons the movie gives here and there makes it a good watch.

We know the movie ends with the charming song Sooraj ki baahon mein, where Arjun marries Laila ; Kabir and Natasha call off their almost planned wedding and Imran chills with Laila’s friend Nuria. But what next? Maybe Arjun and Laila finally get back to London, Arjun decides to pre-pone his “40 ke baad ka plan”, takes retirement from his super exhausting job and decides to see the world with Laila from his hard earned money and both of them become travel bloggers to keep an active source of living.

Imran finally gets the poems in his diary published and becomes a successful artist, gets married and settles down with his wife and mother, always gives due credit to both of them for all his successes. And maybe after spending some time without Natasha, Kabir realizes that it is Natasha only with whom he wants to spend the rest of his life. They both come together, sort out their differences of giving each other the required space and finally get married… I mean who knows!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – We all remember this Ayan Mukherji directed fun watch of 4 friends Bunny, Naina, Avi and Aditi and remember the ending too; how the story ends up on a conference call between the 4 friends wishing each other New year’s – Aditi at the airport to leave for her honeymoon, Avi at his bar which is almost about to close permanently and Bunny and Naina together, finally realizing that they love each other and want to stay together.

But what happens next? As said to Naina, Bunny gives up his dream of “udna-bhaagna-girna” and decides to stay with Naina. Also, as Bunny and Avi had planned way before life happened to stay together and do something, they finally start a tourism business together, thus Bunny keeping all his promises and living his dream a little bit. Aditi remains happy in her world but all of them meet frequently for many more trips like Manali and maybe Avi finds a life partner too on one of such trips…Maybe!

Okay, now that I am done, you all are free to judge me to remember all the characters names and scenes so well, I won’t mind. (proud movie junkie, you know!) Do answer my poll on which self-extended story you liked the most so that I can get into talks with the production houses to make it happen. Feel free to share any other thoughts or creativity of your own in the comments.
