Every year, each one of us eagerly waits for the monsoon season. We all love each aspect of the rain, from the earthy smell of the ground to the wind to water droplets on windows. There is nothing more cosy than sitting with a cup of coffee in your blanket on a rainy day.
These rains definitely evoke so many of our emotions and what better way to express our feelings than our favourite Bollywood songs. So, we are here with a list of iconic rain songs of Bollywood to enjoy this lovely weather.
Ek Ladki Bheegi bhagi Si
This one is a classic by Kishore Kumar in all his glory. Although the song is the perfect one for monsoons but there is no rain in the song except for the rain-soaked Madhubala. This song is basically about a rain-soaked girl out all alone at night. You just get a glimpse of the girl and otherwise the song focuses on the mechanic, Kishore Kumar who can play amazing melodies with his tools. This song gets even more admirable with the music by S D Burman.
Dum Dum Diga Diga
This cheerful song is sung by Mukesh to celebrate the joy of the first rain. The melodious voice of Mukesh is enhanced with the music by Kalyanji Anandji. This song features Raj Kapoor jumping all around in his trademark style while women pull off dry clothes from the ropes and people look for shelter. The black & white song perfectly depicts the joy of the first rains.
