Forever young antakshari songs

MUMBAI: Age is just a number when it comes to ‘Antakshari’. Whether  6 or 60, the players are always ready to entertain with some deathless tracks.

So, what are you waiting for? Baithe Baithe Kya Karein? Karna Hai Kuch Kaam. Shuru Karo Antakshari Leke Prabhu Ka Naam.

Mahi Ne Mahi, Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994)

‘The Repeated Rhythm’

The chief anthem, which is immortal to the masses, wins the race of ‘Antakshari’ by topping the list. Bollywood nightingale Lata Mangeshkar croons this piping number from Rajshri Productions.

A B C D, Hum Sath-Sath Hain (1999)

‘The Jargon’

Once started, you would not end until the last. It is difficult to think how music-director Raamlaxman get the notion of composing this tricky track.

Mujh Ko Huyi Na Khabar, Dil To Pagal Hai (1997)

‘Lender of Last Resort’

When you are unable to think a song from ‘M’, this one might be a savior and help you win Antakshari.  Singing experts, Asha Bhosle and Udit Narayan nailed this energetic soundtrack.

Na Na Na Re, Mrityudaata (1997)

‘The Rollick Beat’

Thanks to Daler Mehndi who introduced Punjabi beats to Hindi Cinema. While this song comes 

up, the Antakshari players get high on zeal.

Gata Rahe Mera Dil, Guide (1965)

‘The dreamer’s choice’

Such peculiar lyrics, such a relaxing tune, maybe this is what special about this melody. The song itself suggests ‘my heart keeps on singing’ to maintain the soothing spirit of the game. Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar are the voices behind the song.

Na Na Karte Pyar Tumhin Se Kar Baithe, Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965)

‘The Trump Card’

The letter ‘N’ when repeated twice, the call is yours. Your mind reminds you of this pending number and you use it immediately. An old track whose lyrics written by Anand Bakshi and music prone by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Ek Do Teen, Tezaab (1988)

‘The Quintessential’

A is the letter and ‘Ek Do Teen Chaar’ is the song to jump for. This chartbuster by Alka Yagniik can officially be award the title, ‘the unforgettable song’.

 Oh Oh Jane Jaana, Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya (1998)

‘The Recycled Resource’

When the clock is running tick tock tick and the letter prescribed to you is O, take the initiative of humming this groovy track sung by Kamaal Khan. There was a time when every phone got this song as its ringtone.

Thande Thande Paani Se, Pati Patni Aur Who (1978)

‘The Meaningless Gem’

Although the song make no sense at all but surprisingly this is one kind of song we cannot get rid of. Singer-composer Ravindra Jain provided the music to this indispensable track.

Imli Ka Boota, Saudagar (1991)

‘The Seedless Fruit’

This is another song, which makes no sense from lyrical point of view. However let us face it; we badly need this one to fulfill the need of letter ‘I’. Mohammad Aziz and Sudhesh Bhosle are the names behind singing this uncanny number.

Aa Aa Ee Oo Oo Oo, Raja Babu (1994)

‘The Vowel’

When the letter is ‘A’, this is one epic song for Antakshari you can count on. With Govinda oozing the fans with his flawless expressions and Abhijeet looting the listeners with his versatile voice, this catchy song is perfect hit.

Kabootar Ja Ja Ja, Maine Pyar Kiya (1989)

‘The Metaphor’

This is an inescapable tune, which created sort of created history because of the uniqueness involved in the song.  This song has to feature in any Antakshari game at any cost. Thanks to Lata Mangeshkar for giving us so many Antakshari songs.

Ruk Ruk Ruk, Vijaypath (1994)

‘The Heart-throb’

Even though the song is asking to ‘wait’, yet we run to sing this vivacious track to steal the show. Music director Anu Malik chose singer Alisha Chinai’s voice, which was a profitable decision.

Saat Samundar Paar, Vishwatma (1992)

‘The Imperishable’

No song has ever come to replace this music marvel. Sadhana Sargam lent her vocals while the arresting Divya Bharti performed in the video.
