Lockdown has given us many scenarios which we wouldn’t usually relate to, like social distancing, personal hygiene etc. Another good part is Hindi films always had songs for all of these situations.
So let’s enjoy a few of these melodies which we term as “Lockdown Songs of Bollywood”.
Andar Se Koi Bahar – Bobby
This in true spirit is a COVID theme song, written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.
Pal Bhar Ke Liye – Johny Mera Naam
Dev Anand tries his best to peep in and enter the house, but is shut out by Hema Malini. Isn’t it perfect for lockdown?
Teri Galiyon Main Na Rakhenge Kadam – Hawas
The words depicting distance is perfect for this time. COVID and this song are made for each other.
Saamewali Khidki Main – Padosan
Nothing better describes romance in lockdown than this song.
Samne Yeh Kaun Aaya – Jawani Diwani
Truly, this is the state of every one of us. We see anyone unknown and this typical” hulchul“ erupts in our heart.
Chotasa Ghar Hai Ye Magar – Darr
Tum isko pasand karlo, darwaza band karlo ….
Mere Angne main – Laawaris
Even our building gates are closed these days. No guests allowed. Humare angne main tumhara kya kaam hai?
Dheere Se Aajari Akhiyan – Albela
Biggest impact lockdown has seen is on our body routine and sleep. You literally have to call sleep, and it creeps in so slowly
Paas Nahi Aana – Aap Ki Kasam
Be it friends of foes, we have same lines – Paas Nahi Aana
Jaane Do Na – Sagar
Well, India is fighting COVID to the best it can. Play your role. If anyone tempts you to leave your house or meet, just tell them – Jaane Do Na
