It is that time of the year again when consumer products exploit our sentiments towards a bond that we call friendship. Yes it is Friendship Day. And while we are busy flipping through the many Friendship Day ads let's also turn our attention to the recent tracks in Bollywood that have given this bond meaning on-screen.
Jaane Nahi Denge Tujhe
A complete tear-jerker, this song from 3 Idiots exhibited the strong bond between Rancho, Farhan and Raju. Swanand Kirkire's words "Sunn le yaaron ki yeh baatein, Beetengi sab ghum ki raatein, Yaaron se rootha hai saale kyoon" immortalised the fear of losing a friend.
Dil Chahta Hai
The title track of the 2001 film has all the ingredients of a true friendship. With all their mischief, fights and fun this song can be declared a friendship anthem!
This Yo Yo Honey Singh song from Fugly is the new age friendship song. Set in the backdrop of four friends having fun on a road trip, it even describes the 'Urban Poor' condition in its lyrics – "Ho gayi jab haalat kadki, Yaad aane lagi phir ghar ki".
Tu Hi Toh Meri Dost Hain
The Yuvraaj song puts into music what Rahul famously said to Ms. Briganza in Kuch Kuch Hota Hain – "Pyar dosti hai, agar woh meri sab se achchi dost nahin ban sakti to main us se pyaar kar hi nahi sakta". The song describes the friendship that two lovers share in their relationship.
Har Ek Friend Kamina Hota Hain
A parody of the Airtel jingle, this song from the 2013 film Chashme Baddoor, is a fun song that portrays college friendship just as it is. The trio of Ali Zafar, Siddharth and Divyendu Sharma will make you miss your time in college.
The London Dreams song gives friendship a musical twist. According to the song's lyrics, "Yaari bina hai besuri meri zindagi". With Prasoon Joshi's heartfelt words, this touchy number makes you see friendship in an all new light.
