Bollywood Films Where The Music Stole The Show

Bollywood Films Where The Music Stole The Show, Bollywood Films Where The Music Played The Piper, Top 8 musical Bollywood Movies, Bollywood Musical Films List, Mango Bollywood, Bollywood movies have best background score, Music Based Bollywood Movies, 8 Bollywood Films We Watched Because Of Their Music, Best Musical Bollywood Films of All Time

Every time we watch a film, there are certain elements from the movie which leave a lasting mark. From the music to the background effects to the script, everything comes together in a manner which could either break or make the movie. While some movies became an instant hit purely because of the actors or the script, others have become famous for their amazing songs and background scores. Today, we take a look at how the Piper sang and drew people to the theaters not in singles, but in massive numbers!

1. Mughal E Azam 

A period drama showing the much talked about love between Saleem and Anarkali, what made this movie so great was not just the movie, but the background score and music as well! More than 50 years after its release, the songs from Mughal E Azam are always at the back of our minds. From songs about proving your love (Jab Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya) to songs about eternal hope (Shubh Din Ayo,) all the songs were perhaps some of the best Bollywood could offer. Listen to Jab Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya here.

2. Umrao Jaan 

While Umrao Jaan tells the story of a girl sold to a brothel for revenge, what makes the film so remarkably beautiful is the songs. Exploring different sides of love, heartbreak and pain in a manner like never before, songs like Dil Cheez Kya Hai and In Aankhon Ki Masti Main address exactly how one feels during heartbreaking times. For those who would like to know, the mujra Rekha performs during In Aankhon Ki Masti Main still gives everyone electrifying goosebumps! Listen to the song here!

3. Silsila 

An epic movie in the sense that it had Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha and Jaya Bachchan in the lead roles, the film broke all records when it released. However, what made this movie so great is it had some of the best songs of the time. In fact, even before the film hit the screens, the title track of Silsila instantly stuck in the minds of the listeners. With lyrics that calmed your aching soul and music that made even the tone deaf sit up and listen, the title track was the perfect balm to cold hearts. If you do not know what I am talking about, then you absolutely have to listen to it here and now!

4. Muqaddar Ka Sikandar 

The entire album from this movie has been named as perhaps the best music album in the Bollywood world at the time. While the movie in itself was really good, the songs were the perfectly delicious cherry on the top. While the title track was beautiful, to say the least, it was the song Salaam E Ishq that put Muqaddar Ka Sikandar on the map of great films! Listen to the song here!

5. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge 

Who can say no to a love story revolving around Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol? While the story had everything you would want (family drama, the stoic father and the rich brat with no real future,) what really drew everyone to the theaters in numbers even years after the release was the wonderful music. With both Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar giving their voice to this beautiful film, songs like Mehendi Laga Ke Rakhna and Tujhe Dekha Toh Ye Jaana Sanam are still among our top ten favourite songs list! Listen to Tujhe Dekha Toh Ye Jaana Sanam here!

6. Bluffmaster 

While the script for this particular Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan film was slightly contrived, what made the film better was the amazing music. An all time favourite song from this overly dramatic movie was Boro Boro because it was sung by the eternally famous Arash! Starring Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh in the lead roles, this song was the main reason for the film to become a success! Listen to the song here!

7. Rock On 

Rock On, as a movie was amazing on its own, there is absolutely no denying the fact. However, what made Rock On so much better was the brilliant music. What came as an added bonus was this film was perhaps the first time Farhan Akhtar sang a song himself! A movie about exploring oneself, growing in and out of friendships and realising music was the characters’ first true love, Rock On still gives viewers goosebumps every time they watch the movie! Listen to Sinbad the Sailor here!

8. Band Baaja Baaraat

While Band Baaja Baaraat was known for marking the Bollywood debut of Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh, not many know it also marked the debut of international singer, Natalia Di Luccio. An Italian Canadian singer famous for her YouTube channel, Natalia’s voice was so strong in this film that she gave her voice to not one, but ten films after! Listen to the song here.

Published

Kesari Trailer Finally Out, #KesariTrailer, Akshay Kumar Kesari trailer Review, Mango Bollywood, Kesari Movie Latest Update, Akshay Kumar trailer, Kesari Akshay Kumar latest news, Parineeti Chopra upcoming movie news, Kesari The Untold Story Latest Film News

Kesari, the highly talked about Akshay Kumar movie, finally has a trailer to its name. After three back to back teasers enticing and drawing in the audience, the trailer finally gives a complete picture. While the teasers showed us various shades of Akshay’s character in the film, this trailer talks about the intense battle which was the Battle of Saragarhi.

Filled with action, drama and amazing fight sequences, the trailer sees with how much pride the Sikhs are filled, fighting for their rights and their homeland. The just dropped trailer shows the amount of courage 21 Sikh soldiers had to fight against 10,000 Afghan tribesmen. Watch the trailer here!

Everything about this trailer is quite an eye opener. From the music, to the action and to the entire sets, the video takes us through one of the “bravest battles ever fought,” according to the posters and trailers! Akshay Kumar’s perfect portrayal of the leader of the Sikhs and the way he commands the entire force, gives one goosebumps. An untold story about a war which changed the course of Indian history, this trailer leaves one wanting for more.

For the uninitiated, the Battle of Saragarhi took place on the 12th of September, 1897. Ordered by the British, 21 Sikh soldiers were tasked with the job of protecting the forts of Lockhart and Gulistan, on the border of Afghanistan. What history does not tell us is, the soldiers were fighting for their homeland because of the love they had for it and not just because of the orders given to them. The trailer also gives us a look into how proud the soldiers were of being Sikhs. Everything about this movie promises to be a treat like never before!

Directed by Anurag Singh, this movie also stars Parineeti Chopra in the lead role! Kesari: The Untold Story, is all set to hit the screens on the 21st of March this year and we cannot wait! Can you?

Bollywood Films Based On Real Life Events

Bollywood Films Based On Real Life Events, Top Bollywood Movies based on True Stories, Bollywood Biography films, Mango Bollywood, Reality Hindi Films, Bollywood Historical Movies, Best Bollywood Films based on True incidents, Real Story Movies in Bollywood

The history of India is rich and colourful, with a host of interesting historical events to its name. When you combine these events with Bollywood, you get to ride on the magical journey of the past with more than a sense of realism. From heinous crimes, to tales of murders and to realising the truth is far more devastating to watch on the big screen than reading about it, these movies have more than shown us the other side of the coin!

1. Bandit Queen

Bandit Queen, Bollywood Films Based On Real Life Events, Top Bollywood Movies based on True Stories, Bollywood Biography films, Mango Bollywood, Reality Hindi Films, Bollywood Historical Movies, Best Bollywood Films based on True incidents, Real Story Movies in Bollywood

A Shekhar Kapoor directorial, Bandit Queen tells the story of Phoolan Devi, one of the most feared bandit queens in the Indian history. Telling the tale of how Phoolan Devi was married off as a child, this movie talks about what she had to do in order to get over her social circumstances. Abused and molested for most of her childhood, Phoolan Devi lived a troubled life. Her rise to the position of a bandit queen was the show of strength and the fight she put up against patriarchy. Kapoor’s Bandit Queen showed her journey and told us the story of what happens when you are pushed against the wall. Do you succumb to your fate or do you fight back and make a name for yourself? Hard hitting and portrayed to perfection, this story needed to be told, showing us that no matter what is portrayed, there is always more to see than what meets the eye.

2. Black Friday

Anurag Kashyap’s directorial debut, Black Friday was based on the 1993 Mumbai blasts and was rumoured to have been inspired by Hussain Zaidi’s novel of the same name. Opening to scenes of the blasts and talking about the aftermath of the event, this movie received criticism for more than three years before its release. Hard hitting and extremely realistic, this movie focused on Dawood Ibrahim and his family and about what triggered the blasts. When you see a major event being depicted on the silver screen, the harsh realities of the world come as nothing short of a wake up call.

3. Firaaq

We know the Godhra riots of 2002 in Gujarat had a life changing impact on major sections of the Indian society. How do we know this? Because of the vast literature written about this very subject. However, when Nandita Das made a movie about this, what we saw quite literally shook us. Telling the story of how ordinary people were affected by the severity of the blasts, Firaaq gave us a clear insight into how many people’s lives were changed by the riots. With an impressive star cast, the movie won not one, but two national awards for its depiction of what happened after the riots.

4. Shahid

Based on Shahid Azmi, a lawyer/activist who was gunned to death for fighting for the rights of Muslim men, Shahid tells a truth not many of us want to accept. A lot of people misunderstood why Shahid Azmi was doing what he did, which was fighting for the Muslim men wrongfully charged as terrorists, under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA.) Showing us we as an audience are so natural at jumping to conclusions when someone does the unexpected, this movie told a story which needed to be told.

5. No One Killed Jessica

No One Killed Jessica,Bollywood Films Based On Real Life Events, Top Bollywood Movies based on True Stories, Bollywood Biography films, Mango Bollywood, Reality Hindi Films, Bollywood Historical Movies, Best Bollywood Films based on True incidents, Real Story Movies in Bollywood

How many times have you heard of someone being murdered with a room full of witnesses and justice being delivered? Not many, right? This is exactly what happened when the brutal murder of Jessica Lal took several years to solve, despite there being more than enough witnesses. Showing the true powers of the rich and famous, No One Killed Jessica was all about how journalistic integrity brought justice to a family which lost more than it deserved. While the media is often portrayed as a negative industry when it comes to cases like these, the fact that this movie showed the opposite side was quite an eye opener.

Bollywood as an industry has a strong responsibility of telling a story exactly the way it happened. While a few creative liberties can be taken, the end result leaves us filled with wonder and awe. If you think we missed out on any other movies based on true incidents, comment and let us know!

Badla First Song Kyun Rabba Released

Published

Badla First Song Kyun Rabba Released, Badla song Kyun Rabba, Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu Badla, Badla Movie Songs, Mango Bollywood, Badla song Kyun Rabba Amitabh Bachchan, Badla song Kyun Rabba Taapsee Pannu, Badla Movie Latest News and Updates

Kyun Rabba, the first song from Taapsee Pannu’s and Amitabh Bachchan’s highly anticipated film, Badla, is finally out! While the recently released trailer shows us about what the movie is, without really divulging the details, the song gives us a little more insight.

Composed by Amaal Mallik and sung by Armaan Malik, the first song has been shot through the point of view of the character played by Taapsee Pannu. Bringing out an array of emotions and feelings, Kyun Rabba shows how a woman deals with a broken heart and with unrequited love. Listen to the song from Badla here and now!

Centering primarily around the character played by Taapsee Pannu, this song is all about accepting that life doesn’t always go the way you want. With different storylines being played out, this song also hints at the fact that Taapsee’s character may be having an extramarital affair. With not a lot of information revealed about this part in the trailer or any of the posters, the twist in the song adds a certain sense of intrigue to the story.

Speaking about the song, composer Amaal Mallik said in a statement, I like to keep things simple, especially for a song that is set in a thriller like Badla, where the emotions need to be conveyed with complexity. So, I compose a melody first and then place the arrangements for the song. Here, we’ve opted for an alternate rock feel with an Indian soundscape.”

With the song being all things simple and easy, Kyun Rabba doesn’t act like a filler, but instead, pushes the movie forward. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Badla brings back Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu after Pink, their first film together. While Taapsee Pannu plays the role of a woman trying to defend herself, Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of her lawyer. Badla is scheduled to hit the screens on the 8th of March this year!

Photograph Trailer Released

Published

Photograph Trailer Released, Photograph Movie trailer out, Nawazuddin Siddiqui New Film Update, Mango Bollywood, Photograph Trailer Talk, Sanya Malhotra Upcoming Movie news, Photograph Movie Latest Update, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra Film

Photograph, Ritesh Batra’s latest directorial, has been hitting the headlines for all the right reasons! With an impressive cast, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra, Batra tells a beautiful story. Shot through the streets of Mumbai, the recently dropped trailer of Photograph gives one a glimpse of love in a different way altogether.

The two and a half minute long trailer shows how both Rafi (Nawazuddin) and Miloni (Sanya Malhotra) start falling in love with each other in strange circumstances. Desperately trying to avoid marriage, the trailer shows how both Miloni and Rafi live their lives on their own terms. With the first seeds of romance being sown when Rafi takes a mesmerising picture of Miloni in front of the Gateway of India, the rest of the trailer shows an interesting display of emotions. Watch the trailer here!

Just when Rafi and Miloni start developing a bond, Rafi learns of his grandmother, played by Farrukh Jaffar, not taking her tablets. Why? Rafi is rejecting every girl he sees and the very idea of marriage in itself. Introducing Miloni as his love interest, Rafi opens the doors to a new story entirely. Through the trailer, one sees the bond growing stronger in a way which makes you wonder if the bond is fabricated, or if there is a chance of a true romance developing!

Just like The Lunchbox, Ritesh Batra has once again done wonders and brought two extremely unlikely people together in a beautiful manner. Watching an unusual friendship develop into a stronger relationship is going to be quite a treat to watch. With Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra bringing their A games to the table, Photograph promises to be an engaging movie! Also starring Sachin Khedekar, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Robin Das, Jim Sarbh and Denzil Smith, Photograph is scheduled to hit the screens on the 15th of March this year!
