What is Bollywood without songs? Well, you really cannot imagine the glitz and glamour of the industry with a good dose of song and dance sequences. And some songs simply fail to create their impact without the elements: different shades of weather spell romance, drama, magic, intensity and poetry. Here are 5 songs of Bollywood which you cannot imagine without the elements.
Yeh Haseen Vadiya from Roja
This song from the National award winning movie brings out the best of Kashmir and romancing in snow is probably every couple’s dream. The song sequence truly certifies that if there is heaven on earth it has to be Kashmir. The alpine landscape, the snow-clad mountains, the beautiful lakes and the lovely couple make this song memorable.
Jiya Jale from Dil Se
If you want to explore various beautiful locations in Kerala, this song is the perfect way to do that. This song has been shot extensively in Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, Athirapally and Thekkady Falls. It is a treat to watch Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta romancing on the boat. The entire song sequence was shot in a houseboat and as the night unfolded, one can almost feel the magic and intensity.
Taal se Taal Mila from Taal
When you talk of an aesthetic song sequence, one has to talk about Taal se Taal Mila from the movie. There is something pure and unadulterated about this song and Aishwarya looked serene in pristine white. Of course, we do not approve of Akshay Khanna taking photographs of Aishwarya and others stealthily, we of course love the way the song is shot in the rains.
Hawa ke Sath Sath from Seeta aur Geeta
When you talk about a windy song, we have to speak about Hawa ke sath sath from Seeta aur Geeta. The best thing about the song; both Sanjeev Kumar and Hema Malini were on skates and this was something totally new and innovative. A vivacious Geeta and Sanjeev Kumar romancing on skates is one of the best things that could happen in Indian cinema at that point of time.
Paani Paani from Yaariyan
Although there is a watery element in this song, like many other songs sun has been glorified as a perfect metaphor of love. Sunshine and love go well quite well and Paani Paani is the perfect song to play when you decide to have a beach party.
