‘Kalank’ To ‘Ek Ladki’: 5 Recent Films That Mark The Return Of Title Songs

Be it Ranbir Kapoor warning girls by singing ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, or Hrithik Roshan doing his most iconic moves to ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’ — title songs have always defined the look and feel of a film. The songs stayed on our lips and we hummed to their tunes days after watching the film, thus proving that title songs have a great recall value too!

Somewhere down the road, however, the essence of the title song in a film got lost. The total number of songs in a film reduced so much, that a title song was far from being included in the discography of the film. However, now certain films in Bollywood are reversing the trend! Here are 5 latest Bollywood films and their amazing title tracks.

1. Kalank

The multi-starrer period drama has a title song that completely matches everything that the film represents – the opulence, the elegance, and the sheer grandeur!

2. Badla

“Door se koi aaya hai, kuch aisi baat baaki hai. Mazboor hoke aaye hai, chhota hisaab baaki hai. Hai na?” The title song of Badla is mysterious and suspicious, revealing something but leaving much more unanswered.

3. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga

The remake of the classic song sung by Darshan Raval, the track is soft and mellifluous. It makes you instantly want to get up and go around with happiness, living the feeling that is love!

4. Total Dhamaal

Total Dhamaal – the comedy film with an ensemble cast, had a simple message in its title song! After all – it’s all about the money, honey.

5. Thackeray

The Bala Saheb Thackeray biopic, too, had a powerful title track – summarising the life and times of Bala Saheb!
