What is a “spectacular song” ? Picture perfect bodies grooving to “dhakchik dhakchik” music ? In the wake of Dhoom3 song called “Malang” where the makers claim it as it being “most spectacular” song ever, here is what I think what makes a song spectacular (in no particular order):
a) Melodious music.
b) Good camera angles which elevate/enhance the mood of the song.
c) Choreography ..(need not be pelvic thrusts – it could just be just as simple as a walk – but in sync with the beat)
d) Emotions/Grace/Movement of the actors/dancers/performers.
e) Chemistry between male and female leads.
Based on above I think below are the spectacular songs (I hate using word “most” or “top 10″ top 5″ top xyz” ..please add yours to the list ..)
What can I say about below song? The Ashok Kumar’s acting – the way he takes steps, the way he lights his cigar, his expressions – the scene when he approaches the “Jhoola” and suddenly the lady on the swing is gone…and most importantaly – Lata’s voice ..
Yeh Duniya Agar Mil bhi jaaye to kya hai –
Not a favorite of mine in particular as far as lyrics and acting goes – but the song is filmed in a good way.
Again, one more song – which I love very much but hate the actresses lazy dancing, nonetheless – this is one of the spectacular songs in Bollywood – for various reasons..
One more lazy dancing – but – AH, what a beat – what a song !! The aura of this almost takes one back to the 18th century (at-least me).
One of the most Dhamakedaar songs – Dev and Vyjayanthimala – one of the finest dancers we ever had !
Hrithik in style and the unusual Circus song – nice music too. The choreography is too nice.
Madhuri !!! (what more can I say)
For its sheer nostalgia !! (probably the first picturesque song of Hindi cinema in Romantic genre) : –
