Imagine a Bollywood movie without songs. Feels incomplete right? Bollywood is known for its song and dance sequences and accept it, we love it. Be it a vidaai scene or first love, or even deaths, Bollywood has songs for every occasion. But there have been times when the songs were way too much. Yes, Bollywood has created some really long songs where we might have felt like saying ‘STOP’. Check out some of the longest songs in Bollywood.
Piya Tose (Guide)
One of the most iconic songs from one of the most loved movies of Waheeda Rahman, this movie boasts of some amazing songs. Among them all, Piya Tose featuring this beautiful actress might seem to be an endless number. Even though the songs from those eras used to continue for minutes but this one continued for 8.28mins.
Soni Soni (Mohabbatein)
A multi-starrer by Adi Chopra, we witnessed the debut of 6 budding actors and the face off of Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. But that is not it, the movie boasted of some amazing songs among which the song Soni Soni Ankhiyon Wali became the Holi anthem for many years, but did you ever notice before, how long the song was? Yes, it’s a whopping 9.12min song.
Senti wali Mental (Shaandar)
While most of us might have wondered, what went wrong with Alia Bhatt, Pankaj Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor at the same time, that they signed Shaandar. Even though the movie had some good songs, it is the Senti Wali Mental song that we are talking about, the song was 10.05mins long.
Sandese Ate Hain (Border)
We have all loved this movie and the song thanks to the amazing composition of Anu Malik and the lyrics penned down by Javed Akhtar. Song by two of the most soulful singers in the Bollywood, Sonu Nigam and Roop Kumar Rathod, this beautiful song is 10.19mins long and we do not complain though.
Humein To lut Liya (Al Hilal)
We have all heard and sung this popular Qawalli song from the 50’s, but not many of us know anything else about this song. The song which is actually from the film, Al Hilal is one of the longest songs in Bollywood. Sung by Ismail Azad, this song is 11mins, yes 11 minutes!
Ab Tumhare Hawale (Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo)
The very title of the film gave us a head start that things are going to be long and endless. But none could have guessed that the movie will have a song that is the longest song in Bollywood till date. Shot in multiple pieces on multiple stars, this song is actually 15mins long. Phew!
