For the music lovers, we decided to curate some of the songs in different languages which evokes different sense of pleasure in us!

O Womaniya (Bhojpuri)

An extremely wild number from Gangs of Wasseypur, this song advices a young wife to be as ferocious as her husband would be.

 

Mann Ki Patang ( Hindi)

This delightfully appealing song takes one to the streets of Delhi as if one were right there. The protagonists in the song are seen roaming throughout the city looking for material for a book they’re about to write. It captures the city’s essence, to hold it in its soul. While the song by itself feels like a cup of chai in summer rain. On an additional note, one must not miss this delicate yet stunning story of a mother and daughter, where the daughter is unable to accept her widowed mother’s relationship with another man. Indraneel Hariharan, the composer of this song, is a part of a fusion mix band called “Mrigya”, while his wife, Punam Hariharan, has penned the lyrics.

Deewani Mastaani – Bajirao Mastani (Hindi)

Sanjay Leela Bhansaali is back with his beautiful creations and his women. This time we have Mastani; a brave and beautiful warrior who was rumoured to be Bajirao’s second wife/mistress and whose power on Bajirao had led to great legends. In this song Bhansaali, is giving a tribute to all the Bollywood visuals ( Mughale Azam), at the same giving the voice for Mastani’s desire.

Rimjhim Gire Saawan – Manzil (Hindi)

If you are sitting down with a cup of chai and watching the rain, turn on our gramophone and listen to Rhim Jhim from Manzil (1979). An older Bombay comes alive as Moushmi Chatterjee and Amitabh Bachchan walk the streets drenched in Bombay’s harsh but beautiful monsoon. Manzil is a Basu Chatterjee film, where Bachchan plays an ambitious young man who lies about his finances to marry the daughter of a rich lawyer. As the baarish wears thin and the lies surface, the woman has to decide if she loves him or loves the grandeur she thought he was attached to. No points for guessing, this one, but do enjoy the song.
