Beat The Summer Blues With Romantic Bollywood Songs - Mausam Ke Suhane Geet

Indian summer heat is very different from that of the summer heat in the west, with temperatures soaring high upto 45 degrees Celsius in the North and upto 35 degrees Celsius in the western and southern coast. The summer starts in the month of March soon after the festival of Holi which marks the beginning of spring after winter. By end of March and beginning of April the heat begins to rise and lasts all the way till the month of June.

By the first week of June or mid June the monsoons arrive on the coast. After two months of sweltering heat and dry weather, the rains are welcomed with much enthusiasm as it cools down the earth and brings down the temperatures all over.

However, whatever the weather or climate may be in India, there are a number of Bollywood songs to suit the occasion. Bollywood songs are mostly based on romance and so these songs remain evergreen in any weather. There are some very lilting and melodious songs of the 60's and 70's era that describe the romantic mood of the weather (called "mausam") in Hindi and will definitely shake you out of your Summer Blues. I have tried to compile some of the most romantic numbers (there are thousands and thousands of them) from the You tube Videos. I will urge you to listen to each one of them completely and would wish that you could understand the lyrics of the song as that is what makes them so romantic.

1. Aaj Mausam Bada - Is a very romantic song from the Film Loafer starring the very handsome and dashing Dharmendra with the beautiful actress Mumtaz. The Playback singers are Mohd. rafi and Lata Mangeshkar. I would have certainly got swept off my feet if I were in place of Mumtaz...Ohhh..those were the romantic days.

2. Kya Mausam Hai - I think anyone would relate to the feelings depicted in this very romantic song from the movie "Doosra Aadmi" starring the very popular dashing hero of the 70's Rishi Kapoor and Shashi kapoor (My personal Favorite)with the beautiful actress (also very popular in those days) Rakhi. The song was sung by the playback singers Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. Oh yes....[b]Chal Kahin Door Nikal Jaaain.......[/b] sings my heart.

3. Ni Sultana Re - Now here is a complete romantic heart melting song that will compel your heart to give in to the mood, specially if you are suffering from those Summer Blues. The song is from the movie "Pyar ka Mausam" and starring the very handsome (everybody was handsome and dashing in that era) Shashi Kapoor and Asha Parekh sung by Mohd. Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar.

4. Mausam Hai Aashiqana - This very lilting, melodious and haunting song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar in the film "Pakeezah". Meena Kumari is the actress in this classic movie with Raaj Kumar. This is exactly what a person would want to sing when he/she is in love. This song is a call of the lonely romantic heart to the lover wishing his presence.
"Aee Dil Kahin Se Unko Aise Main Dhoond Lana....!"

5. Yeh Sama, Sama he yeh Pyar Ka - A very seductive romantic song from the early 70's film "Jab Jab Phool Khile" starring Nanda and Shashi Kapoor. Of course the melodious voice is of none other than the melody queen Lata Mangeshkar.

6. Dil dhoondta hai phir wahi - This is one of my favorite songs from the very romantic film "Mausam" in 1975 starring Sanjeev Kumar and Sharmila Tagore. The song was written by Gulzar whose lyrics were always so poetic. The song describes the romance of all seasons so aptly. Poetic Justice to all Seasons.

I hope that you all liked this list of Romantic Bollywood Songs. They are "Mausam ke Suhane Geet" which will remain evergreen forever. I am sure that each one of you will have your own personal favorite romantic songs that you might like to add to this list. Please feel free to do so in the comment section.
