10 Hindi film songs to celebrate Mother's Day

MUMBAI: If there is one person in this world that is irreplaceable is mother. No matter how tough you are as a person, your heart will melt when it comes to your mom. Indians are brought up with the belief that mother is celestial, which is not false. And this belief has reflected umpteen number of times in our movies. Be it Nirupa Roy, Achala Sachdev, Nargis Dutt, till Reema Lagoo and Tisca Chopra, many of these actresses have reprised the roles of mothers and made them iconic. Let’s have a look at songs that could be a befitting tribute to your mother this Mothers’s Day.

Meri Maa-Taare Zameen Par : Probably the entire recent generation finds this song to be their exact emotion. Whether you are watching this song during the movie narrative or listening off hand, this song brings goosebumps. The heart wrenching pathos of separating a mother and child, the sheer trauma of the child coping with life is quite symbolic to even adult life. The touching song is penned by Prasoon Joshi and sang beautifully by Shankar Mahadevan along with co-composing with Ehsaan and Loy.

Luka Chupi-Rang De Basanti : Who can forget this poignant song. A mother grieving her solider son’s demise in an accident is shattering enough, and lyrics move your heart further. Aaja sanjh hui, mujhe teri fikar dhundhala gayi. When you have Lata Mangeshkar and A R Rahman sing the song, it is bound to struck the right note.

Maa Da Laadla- Dostaana : Okay, enough of songs that make you cry. Let’s think of an upbeat song. Mothers love to pamper and get possessive about their children. Its their forte. Exploring that facet, Maa Da Laadla is a song from the point of view of people around the child. We all know and have seen how mothers overreact for the tiniest discomfort caused to the child. This song, picturised in a rather comic way and with different context in the movie, is a funny way to address the relation between mothers and their children. The upbeat composition by Vishal Dadlani sets the mood right.

Jal Rahi Hai-Bahubali The Beginning : Our mothers are our queens. And like the character of Maahismati in Baahubali, they are strong, support us, and teach us the right values. This song, Jal rahen yahan, is sung by Kailash Kher, depicts the emotion every child has to protect and make his/her mom proud. The thumping music composed by MM Kreem is also known as Maahishmati Anthem. This song is all required to evoke the feeling of sheer faith your mother has in you, even when the whole world turns their back,

Mumma-Dasvidaniya : Another gem by Kailash Kher, this song has guitar strumming in the background lightens the mood before you know you are getting emotional. From the movie, Dasvidaniya, which is about a 37-year-old on learning about his death sets to complete his bucket list is a must have for Mother’s day tribute.

Maa Ka Phone Aya-Khoobsurat : A missed call from mother is equal to two hours of explanation why we didn’t pick up the phone. This song has become a universal ringtone as most kids have set for their respective mothers. This song has an overbearing Kiron Kher and borderline frustrated Sonam, which is a routine scene in every household. But, we wouldn’t have it any other way right? Again a break from serious songs, this one is as fun as it could get.

Chunar-ABCD 2 : Gem of a song sung by none other than Arijit Singh, composed by Sachin-Jigar and lyrics by Mayur Puri, is all what mothers are about-a protective shield for their children, no matter what the situation. Its about how we draw inspiration and strength from her to do better every time and be successful for her.

Tu Kitni Achi Hai-Raja Aur Rank : One from the classics too. This song has the mother of all mothers in Hindi films, Nirupa Roy. From the movie Raja Aur Rank, this song expresses what ever child feels for his/her mother and appreciates her goodness and naivety.

Meri Ma-Yaariyan : This one has the millennials sing their emotions out about how caring and loving our mothers are. It also showcases how a mother will always have maternal feeling and be compassionate to other kids too,

Aisa Kyun Maa-Neerja : Of the recent times, one song that struck the right chord was Aisa Kyun Maa from Neerja. A movie about real life hero, Neerja Bhanot an air hostess, who bravely saved lives of passengers of a highjacked plane, has Sonam Kapoor playing Neerja’s role and Shabana Azmi her doting mother. The beautiful picturization, with memories flocking for the mother of her child’s growing up year, while the child is trapped somewhere, can break your heart. Listen to this gem of song sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, composed by Vishal Khuranay and soulful lyrics by Prasoon Joshi, that conveys the most universal fact: Your mother has a solution for everything on this earth.
