Birthday Special: Eight songs of Lyricist Prasoon Joshi that struck chord with every music lover!

MUMBAI: Poet, lyricist and CBFC Chief Prasoon Joshi who celebrates his 47 birthday, today, September is widely regarded as one of Bollywood’s most thought provoking song writers of the current generation. He was conferred with the Padma Shri award in 2015 for his contribution in the fields of Art, Literature and Advertising.

So, on his birthday, we have list down some of Prasoon Joshi’s lyrical gems, which everyone must revisit.

Maa - Taare Zameen Par:

This song is one of the most tear inducing tracks of the last two decades. It captures the mother-son bond beautifully and strikes a chord with every child. It is a litany of thoughts that go through the boy’s mind when he misses his mother. Prasoon Joshi’s also draws a parallel, where the child is afraid of the dark, but doesn’t express it. Similarly, it also showcases, how he misses his mother and loves her dearly, but can’t express it either.

Singer - Shankar Mahadevan

Music Composer - Shankar - Ehsaan- Loy

Kholo Kholo - Taare Zameen Par:

All the tracks from TZP were huge hit, but this one song has managed to motivate many people and is considered as one of the best songs of Prasoon Joshi. It urges the protagonist and listeners to realise their hidden potential and go out and conquer the world despite anything and everything that may look like an obstacle.

Singer - Raman Mahadevan

Music Composer - Shankar-Ehsaan- Loy

Roobaroo - Rang De Basanti:

Composed by the legendary A.R.Rahman, Rubaru is the song, which will make you reminisce your college days. The song was a huge hit amongst college student along with Khabali from the same film.

Singers - A.R.Rahman & Naresh Iyer

Music Composer - AR Rahman

Tu Bin Bataye - Rang De Basanti :

The quintessential romantic song of the year 2006, Tu Bin Bataye had lyrics and music that could make anyone go weak in their knees. In fact, it’s a song that many of you will download again after reading this post!!

Singers - Madhushree and Naresh iyer

Music Composer - A.R. Rahman

Zinda - Bhaag Milkha Bhaag:

If you need any sort of motivation, play this song on loop. It may not make you Milkha, but will surely put you on your path for fitness. Inspiring lyrics coupled with thumping music and vocals make this our favourite workout track.

Singer - Siddharth Mahadevan

Music Composer - Shankar - Ehsaan - Loy

Arziyan (Maula Maula) - Delhi 6:

This number from Delhi 6 is what we call food for the soul. The way it simply transports you to another world with its meaningful lyrics and soulful composition is unmatched! It almost romanticises your prayers to the Almighty in a way few other songs have been able to.

Singer - Javed Ali and Kailash Kher

Music Composer - A.R.Rahman

Gehra Ishq - Neerja:

Another gem from Prasoon Joshi is Gehra Ishq,from Neerja, a painfully romantic track, which will give you goosebumps when you listen. The movie itself received great appreciation from the critics and audiences alike and the song remains one of the most loved tracks among the music aficionados.

O Rangrez - Bhaag Milkha Bhaag:

O Rangrez is one of the best songs of not just Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, but of Shankar Ehsaan Loy also. The raag-based, slow paced song, sung by Javed Bashir and Shreya Ghoshal, is a conversational one and surely one of those songs that can be heard in a romantic atmosphere.
