In our nation, Lata Mangeshkar doesn’t require an introduction, nor do her songs require a specific justification for listening. Her voice has played a crucial role in the cultural development of our country. Here are my top 8 Lata Mangeshkar songs that I can listen to at any time, in honor of this legendary singer and her enormous contribution to the music industry.
Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna
The chart-topping song “Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna” ended up being the movie’s crowning achievement. Lata Mangeshkar, who was nominated for a Filmfare Award, expertly captured the yearning for the liberation of a lady caught in a moral impasse that is broken up by Love.
Kora Kagaz Tha Yeh Man Mera
A song that really focused on the strength of love and its capacity to cross boundaries in the interest of unity and the hope of a wonderful future. The Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar duet was an immediate success and continues to evoke pleasant memories of simpler times.
Tere Bina Zindagi Se
The chart-topping song, “Tere Bina Zindagi Se,” expertly portrayed one of the most heartbreaking expressions of “yearning for love” shown between Sanjeev Kumar & Suchitra Sen. This number-one hit is still recognized as one of the greatest songs of bygone era and is yet another masterpiece from the team of Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.
Hothon Mein Aisi Baat
The song “Hothon Mein Aisi Baat,” a duet by Bhupinder Singh and Lata Mangeshkar, pretty well captures the mystery surrounding the entire plot of the movie. This song’s gripping instrumentals and lyrics have not only earned it a ton of praise, but they have also helped it become the very face of the motion picture.
Tujhe Dekha To Yeh Jaana
The one song that largely solidified Shah Rukh and Kajol’s on-screen chemistry can be heard in between all the chasing and the movie’s ultimately happy ending. The song “Tujhe Dekha toh yeh jana,” performed by Kumar Sanu and Lata Mangeshkar, was an immediate success. It came to represent love and was known as a “Love Anthem” for more than a decade.
Humko Humise Chura Lo
I can’t even begin to describe the influence this movie, particularly its soundtrack, had on the year 2000. It definitely dominated my high school years, especially the song “farewell.” This star-studded musical romance drama swept the young audience off their feet and became a “cult classic.” Since the film was a musical, the song “Humko Humise Chura Lo” served as its apex and once more demonstrated Lata Mangeshkar’s versatility.
You must immediately see Veer-Zaara if you haven’t already done it online or on DVD since you won’t know what you’re missing. Veer-Zaara has been praised for “having a soul,” a quality that has been bestowed on only a select few contemporary Bollywood films. This movie is definitely not for those who enjoy linear happy endings because it is filled with great drama, deep emotions, and a divine soundtrack. The song “Tere Liye” is what makes the movie even more alluring. Lata Mangeshkar, a legend, took the words and crafted a masterpiece that is likely to be timeless in order to do justice to the film’s theme.
