Most romantic songs in Bollywood

- Advertisement -

A great romantic song can create a vibe of valentine’s day on any day. The soulful singing and heart touching melody are the secret recipes of these soothing romantic songs. While there are great singers like Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Kumar Sanu in the 20th century, sometimes we crave for some modern and more contemporary romantic songs in Bollywood. To keep the list precise and more relevant, I have only picked the songs which are released after 2000 and only considered the romantic songs in Hindi. This best romantic songs list only focuses on the songs featured in Bollywood movies. I will create a separate list of best “Hindi romantic video song album releases”. Also you can check these list of top foreign songs which you won’t understand but keep repeating.

The list will change

I know everybody’s taste is different. So It is impossible to create a universal best romantic songs of 2000s list. I tried to pick my favourites and I am pretty much sure you will love most of them. If you like the songs list, share it with your loved one or your best friend, there might be more commonness between you two than you think. 

So here goes the list of sweetest new Hindi romantic songs with video.

1. O meri Jaan (Tum Mile, 2009) 

Na tum ho bewafaa...Na mein bhi hun
Phir bhi hain hum judaa...Main kya kahoon
Na jaane waqt ki marzi hai kya...Kyun hai mili yeh dooriyan
O meri jaan...o meri jaan

Sometimes I wonder, is there anything better than keep on listening KK songs. And there are very few instances where Imran Hashmi acted in a Bollywood romantic song sung by KK. Without a doubt, it’s one of the most beautiful romantic songs in Bollywood. 

2. Jaaniyan (Haunted, 2011)

Jeena Mera Aasan Kar, Tu Mil Ke Yeh Ehsaan Kar
Kahin Kho Gaya Chain Usko, Tere Dard Ko Ab Jaan Kar
Jaaniya O Jaaniya, Bas Roye Dil Mera
Aasu Palkon Pe Nahin Hai Bewajah
Dil Hai Ghamjada Jaaniya

Sometimes it feels like Bollywood horror movies consistently have great music. Janniyan in the voice of Sidharth Basur really brings out the hidden pain and untold love. You have to listen to it to feel it. In fact, you can pick any song from Haunted film and listen to it for hours.

3. Tum hi ho (Aashiqui 2, 2013)

Kyunki Tum Hi Ho
Ab Tum Hi Ho
Zindagi Ab Tum Hi Ho
Chain Bhi, Mera Dard Bhi
Meri Aashiqui Ab Tum Hi Ho

This song gave the Hindi romantic songs a new identity and easily tops the best Arijit Singh songs list. The Music by Mithoon makes the song son melodious that you will keep on repeating it.

4. Kaun Tujhe (M.S. Dhoni -The untold story, 2016)

Hawa ke jaise chalta hai tu
Main ret jaisi udti hoon
Kaun tujhe yoon pyar karega
Jaise main karti hoon

This song just makes me hope Mahi he can keep on playing forever. And Sushant Singh Rajput’s memory just brings tears to the eyes. I can’t think of anybody who can do justice to the song better than Palak Muchhal.

5. Baarish (Yaariyan, 2014)

Yaariyaan Ve..Yaariyan...
Dil Mera Hain Na Samajh Kitana
Besabar Ye Bewakuf Bada
Chahata Hain Kitana Tujhe
Khud Magar Nahi Jaan Saka

Mohammed Irfan sometimes feels like the exceptional Kumar Sanu. With his awesome voice, the song is rich in feelings with the brilliant music and lyrics from Mithoon. Sometimes the song can feel sad, but hey, where is love without pain!

6. Galliyan (Ek Villian, 2014)

Yahin Doobe Din Mere
Yahin Hote Hain Savere
Yahin Marna Aur Jeena
Yahin Mandir Aur Madeena..Teri Galliyan.. Galiyan Teri Galiyan..

To be honest, 2014 was the golden year for Bollywood romantic songs. This is one of the songs from those days when Ankit Tiwary was more into singing than music direction. Not only the songs but the video too feels cute with the acting of talented Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra.

7. Sapna Jahan (Brothers, 2015)

Sapna jahan dastak na de
Chaukhat thi woh aankhein meri
Baaton se thi tadaad mein
Khamoshiyan zyaada meri
Jabse pade tere kadam
Chalne lagi duniya meri

When Sonu Nigam sings it, David (Akshay Kumar) and Jenny’s (Jacqueline) love is bound to overcome all their struggle. Brothers movie was not all about fights, but it had a simple and cute love story inside it.

8. O humdum Soniya re (Saathiya, 2009)

O hamdam suniyo re
O jhaniyaa suniyo re
O jhaniyaa
Shaam ko khidikee se choree choree nange paaon chaand aayegaa

If you want a more upbeat romantic song, this is it. It is also one of the last movie of Vivek Oberoi before he chose to play Kaal in Krrish 3. KK, Shaan, Kunal, Pravin Mani are the singers for this song, anything more you want?

9. Kuch Toh Hai (Do Lafzon Ki Kahaani, 2016)

Aahatein kaisi yeh aahatein
Sunta hoon aaj kal, aye dil bataa
Dastake dete hai dastake
Kyun ajnabi se pal, aye dil bataa
Kuch toh hai jo neend aaye kam
Kuch toh hai jo aankhein hai num

Arman Malik always does justice to his voice and this song is an example of it. The movie might have failed at the box office, but if you are a fan of Randeep Hooda or Kajal Aggarwal, you can’t even afford to blink your eyes.

10. Kabhi Kabhi Aditi Zindagi (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, 2008)

Kabhi Kabhi Aditi Zindagi Me Yuhi Koi Apna Lagtha Hai
Kabhi Kabhi Adithi Wo Bichad Jaye To Ik Sapna Lagtha Hai..

This song might not be the typical Bollywood romantic song you have imagined but it is better than that. Rashid Ali beautifully expresses, how friendship can turn to love. How much a person can try to see the smile of his special one.

11. Mat Aazma Re (Murder 3, 2013)

Mat aazma re, phir se bula re
Apna bana le hoon beqaraar
Tujhko hi chaha dil hai ye karta
Aa betahasa tujhse hi pyaar
Hasratein baar-baar baar-baar yaar ki karo
Khwaishein baar-baar baar-baar yaar ki karo

Another brilliant KK song. I must say the song was way ahead of the time, that’s why it is still so popular and in so many youngsters’ hello tune. The music feels fresh and the lyrics is good too. Overall it hits the perfect chord of a romantic song, not sad but expressive.

12. Tere hoke rahengay (Raja Natwarlal, 2014)

Kal the miley, phir kyun lage aise
Tumse miley.. arsaa hua jaise
Ab tu bataa.. jo ho pataa..
Tere bina lamha lamha jiyenge kaise...

This Arijit song feels warm and the beats are great too. As usual, Imran Hashmi hits it out of the park. Put on your headphones, hum with it.

12. Khairiyat (Chhichhore, 2019)

Khairiyat pucho, kabhi to kaifiyat pucho
Tumhare bin deewane ka kya haal hai
Dil mera dekho, na meri haisiyat pucho
Tere bin ek din jaise sau saal hai...

There are two beautiful versions of this song, a sad one and a happy one and I die for the happy one. If you have stayed in hostels in your engineering days, it might be a mirror to your life. This Arijit Singh song will just make you wish to bring back Sushant Singh Rajput to life. 

13. Ambarsariya (Fukrey, 2013)

Gali Mein Maare Fhere..Paas Aane Ko Mere
Gali Mein Maare Fhere..Paas Aane Ko Mere
Kabhi Parakhta Nain Mere Tu..Kabhi Parakhta Tor
Kabhi Parakhta Nain Mere Tu..Kabhi Parakhta Tor

Sona Mohapatra’s voice always feels impeccable. And the simple yet catchy music will leave an everlasting impression in your mind for sure.

14. Mann Mera (Table No.21, 2013)

Saari raat aahein bharta..Pal pal yaadon mein marta
Maane na meri mann mera....Thode thode hosh madhoshi si hai
Neem behoshein si hai, Jaane kuch bhi na mann mera
Kabhi mera tha par ab begaana hai yeh
Deewana deewana sumjhe na ho..

Though Gajendra Verma is now more focused towards his own albums, there is no denying that Mann mera is one of the most compelling romantic songs from his arsenal.

15. Phir Mohabbat (Murder 2, 2011)

Jab Jab Tere Paas Main Aaya, Ik Sukoon Mila
Jise Main Tha Bhoolta Aaya, Woh Wajood Mila
Jab Aaye Mausam Gham Ke, Tujhe Yaad Kiya
Jab Sehme Tanha Pann Se, Tujhe Yaad Kiya
Dil, Sambhal Ja Zara...Phir Mohabbat Karne Chala Hai Tu

When Mohamed Irfan opened his concert at NIT Rourkela with this song I was awestruck and till date, this is one of my favourite Bollywood romantic songs. Not only Irfan but also Arijit Singh, Saim made this song so melodious.

16. Mahi (Raaz 2, 2009)

Tujhe milke laga hai, Yeh tujhe dhundh raha tha main
Tujhe milke laga hai, Yeh tujhe dhundh raha tha main
Tujh mein hai kuch aise subah sa, Jiski khaatir main tha jaga sa
Aa tu mere Khwab sajaa ja re
Maahi aaja re maahi aaja re...

For years this Imran Hashmi Song by Toshi & Sharib Sabri remained the only favourite Hindi song of mine. Not just me but for many of us the song carries the nostalgic memory of the school days’ crush.

17. Guzarish (Ghajini, 2011)

Tu Meri Adhuri Pyaas Pyaas, Tu Aa Gayi Mann Ko Raas Raas, Abb Toh
Tu Meri Adhuri Pyaas Pyaas, Tu Aa Gayi Mann Ko Raas Raas
Abb Toh Tu Aaja Paas Paas, Hai Guzaarish

This song was sung by Javed Ali with the background humming by Sonu Nigam and trust me this combination has done something magical. Amir Khan is in the desert following the mirage, Asin.

18. Bol do na zara (AZHAR, 2016)

Itni mohabbat karo na..Main doob na jaun kahi
Vaapas kinare pe aana..Main bhool na jaun kahi..
Dekha jabse chehra tera
Main toh hafton se soya nahi
Bol do na zara

Imran Hashmi really makes the romantic sequences look so simple and natural. And when the song is from Arman Malik and composed by Amaal Malik, it is guaranteed to leave a mark.

20. Mere Naam Tu (Zero, 2018)

Woh rang bhi kya rang hai
Milta na jo tere hoth ke rang se hubahu
Woh khushboo kya khushboo
Thehre na jo teri saanwari zulf ke rubaru

The list will always stay incomplete without the King of Romance. You might or might not like “Zero”, but you can’t stop praising this heart touching song by Ajay-Atul. It’s colourful and blissful and deep enough to ease all your pain.

21. Chahta dil tumko (Shaapit,2010)

Chaahata Kitana Tumako Dil Tum Nahi Jaante
Kya Hai Mere Dil Ki Mushkil Tum Nahi Jaante
Chaahata Kitana Tumako Dil Tum Nahi Jaante..

You might not know that Aditya Narayan has also acted in movies. But today I am not reviewing his acting skill, because he is superb in what he normally does, singing. This song from Shaapit is the proof of it.

22. Deewana Kar Raha Hai (Raaz 3, 2012)

Teri Baahon Mein Mili, Aisi Rahat Si Mujhe
Ho Gayi Jaan-E-Jahaan, Teri Aadat Si Mujhe
Dekhun Main Jab Tujhko Toh, Tab Mera Din Ye Dhale
Deewana Kar Raha Hai...

Nobody’s voice can be more charming than Javed Ali, I bet it. This trained classical singer makes the complex romantic songs sound effortless yet elegant. After Tu Hi Haqueeqat, this is one of the best Javed Ali songs.

23. Koi Ishara (Force 2, 2016)

Pal bhar mein tere ho jayenge
Koi ishaara toh karo
Tere bin kahaan aur kidhar jayenge
Zara samjha toh karo
Saaye se tere lipat jayenge
Koi ishaara toh karo

There is also a romantic side of John Abraham and Arman Malik just showed it. Although Sonakshi Sinha is the co-star of John in Force 2, this song also reminiscent of Genelia D’Souza from Force.

24. Tera hoke rahoon (Behen Hogi Teri, 2017)

Chaahe de yaara khushiyan
Ho jaaye ab “main” se “hum”
Dil mein tu jagah de
Yeh faaslon ko karde tu kam

Raj Kumar Rao always pulls up the role of an everyday normal guy with ease and when he is accompanied by the gorgeous Shruti Hasan and melodious Arjit Singh, it’s a terrific mix for a great romantic video song.

25. Nazar Na Lag Jaaye (Stree, 2018)

Goriye..Tu kinni gori hai
Tu zameen pe chaand ki jodi hai.
Buri hai..Badi buri hai,
Duniya ki neeyat, Chhoriye...Nazar na lag jaaye jaanu
Thought ye ghabraye saanu

I want to end the list with a smile. When Shradha and Rajkumar smile you ought to smile. To lighten up the mood Ash King and Sachin-Jigar is there. So what’s more you want?

There is no end to new Bollywood romantic songs, so there is no end to this list. I will keep updating the list every now and then. So do check back and comment on your favourite. Share this post, so that it will reach more hearts.
