Love to hear Bollywood songs, right? Sure, everyone does! But romantic songs set your mood way better than any other genre.
I don’t think we’ve heard a romantic poem or story without a reference to a flower. Is Love even possible without flowers?
We always tend to send flowers to our loved ones, whether by online flower delivery in Bangalore or hand picking them from a florist.
Even Bollywood has left no chance to glorify the flowers in their scenes or songs. Here are a few hymns showing their eternal relationship.
- “Likhe jo khat tujhe, wo teri yaad mein…”
This very melodious and romantic song from the movie Kanyadaan (1968) is filmed on the charming Shashi Kapoor, and Asha Parekh is intoned by none other than Mohammad Rafi.
Likhe jo khat tujhe,
Wo teri yaad mein,
Hazaron rang ke,
Nazaare ban gaye,
Savera jab hua,
To phool ban gaye
- “Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai…”
Looking for an anthem song for brothers and sisters? This is it! A massively popular song played on every Raksha Bandhan that depicts the loving bond of brothers and sisters was composed in 1971 for the movie Hare Ram Hare Krishna. It was initially recorded by LataMangeshkar and then by Kishore Kumar.
Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai,
Ek hazaaron mein meri behna hai,
Saari umar Hame sung rehna hai,
- “Baharo phoolbarsaomeramehboobayahai… “
A sort of majestic song from the movie Suraj (1966) rendered with the magical voice of Mohammad Rafi, was featured on Rajendra Kumar and Vyjayanthimala. It shows an elephant shaking the branches of a tree with his trunk, to shower the heroine with flowers on a swing that seemed to be made of flowers.
Baharo phool barsao mera mehboob aaya hai!
- “Phoolon ke rang se, dil ki kalam se… “
The evergreen beautiful song that creates a flutter in every heart is sung by Kishore Kumar. It was featured on Dev Anand in the movie Prem Pujari (1970). This song is such a beautiful piece and we bet that it is going to get you hugs and kisses from your special one.
Phoolon ke rang se,
Dil ki kalam se,
Tujhko likh roz paati,
Kaise bataun Kis kis tarah se,
Pal pal mujhe tu satati.
- “Genda Phool”
It is one of the sweetest Bollywood songs sung in a very special and teasing style. Coming from the musical drama film Delhi-6 (2009), created by A.R. Rahman and vocalized by Rekha Bharadwaj, Shraddha Pandit, and Sujata Majumdar. Here the in-law’s house is described as GendaPhool.
Saiyaan ched dewe,
Nanad chutki leve,
Sasural genda phool,
Saas gaari deve,
Dewar samjha leve,
Sasural genda phool,
- “Ae phoolon ki rani baharon ki malika… “
This was filmed on the jubilee star Rajendra Kumar in the movie Arzoo (1965) and is mellifluously sung by Mohammad Rafi. The opening verses of the song compare the lady love, Sadhna, to the queen of flowers and the empress of Spring Season.
Ai Phoolon Ki Raani,
Bahaaron Ki Malika,
Tera Muskuraana, Gajab Ho Gaya,
Na Dil Hosh Mein Hai,
Na Ham Hosh Mein Hain
- “Jab jab bahar ayi aur phool muskuraye… “
It is a very touching theme song from the movie Taqdeer (1967) sung by Mohammad Rafi and Late Mangeshkar along with a few kids. It is repeatedly sung in this family drama by the portraying father Bharat Bhushan. This song keeps them together and connected throughout the movie whether they are together or separated by the crashing waves of destiny.
Jab jab bahar aayi,
Aur phool muskuraye,
Mujhe tum yaad aaye,
Mujhe tum yaad aaye.

This is from the movie Saraswatichandra (1968) crooned by the romantic voice of Mukesh and the heavenly voice of LataMangeshkar. It is one of the most famous Bollywood songs.
