These movie songs give the exact message of sincerity!

Main Yahaan Hu Yahaan from Veer Zaara

Shah Rukh Khan is probably the only Bollywood actor who has reached the pinnacle of portraying both lustful and vulnerable romantic emotions. Just look at his acting in this beautiful song, which exists only in Preity Zinta’s imagination. There is so much control and dignity in the choreography of the song and Shah Rukh matches it with every single beat.

Mizhiyil Ninnum by Mayanadhi:

Hands down, the best depiction of lovemaking in a mainstream Hindi film is in the song Mizhiyil Ninnum from Mayanadhi. Featuring Tovino Thomas and Aishwerya Lekshmi, this melodic number is choreographed mostly with close-ups of their faces and bodies as they spend a night together. It’s a rich, tender and sensitive depiction of intimacy that flows like a river of unspoken emotions.

From Zara Zara Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein

A rare song that gives voice and expression to female desire. Zara Zara is where the woman talks about her desire to merge with her lover and the deep attraction she feels for him. The music video fits the rhythm of this song gracefully, capturing the flow of emotions that Bombay Jayashri presents so beautifully. A true classic!

Aye Udi Udi by Saathiya

AR Rahman and Gulzar came together years ago to give us this gem of a song and it still sounds as fresh and vibrant as ever. The song is about the intensity of first love and how time spent between lovers never seems to be enough. Rani Mukerji and Vivek Oberoi lend great support to the vibrant vibe of this song.

Pehli Baar Mohabbat Ki Hai by Kaminey

Is this the most underrated Mohit Chauhan song ever? The soulfulness he brings to this track perfectly matches the mood of the two mismatched characters played by Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. They play volleyball, fight over the smallest things and make up. It’s a small world they’ve created and the song offers a glimpse into that space.

My tongue makes the sound Mmmm from Salaam Namaste

Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta share some sparkling chemistry in this beautiful track composed by Vishal and Shekhar. The music video begins with a kiss between the two characters and then they are seen talking about each other and how silly and goofy they are sometimes. But these flaws are what draw them the most in this track, which balances out the mischievous vibe between the two characters, even if they end up falling a little more in love with each other at the end of the day.
