    Rain Songs

    The last few days of summer before the onset of rains are the worst. The heat and sweat are enough to kill anyone’s appetite and also interest in life. People in the hotter areas are the worst sufferers. The other day, I received a WhatsApp video that showed a group of volunteers in Ahmedabad sprinkling water on the scooter riders at the traffic signals to give them some relief from the scorching heat. People in north India suffer the worst because of the heat wave conditions. Anyway, monsoons have begun in India with a bang. Now what? Complaints about the bad road conditions, shoddy job by the municipality, flooding, death due to lightning, drowning in open manholes, electrocution and diseases are the main news items. Added to these are the real woes of our farmers. But we can’t let this beautiful season pass with only negative associations let us also talk about the beautiful things rains are associated with.


    I love rainy season the most. At first, it is the fresh smell of the earth-petrichor. Following this are the dark clouds, thunder, lightning, atmospheric changes, cool breeze and finally the rain.:) Don’t you love the freshness it brings to the atmosphere? Rains are also associated with fertility and the burst of greenery everywhere. The rainy season also heralds the beginning of a series of Hindu festivals and the wedding season i.e., after a gap of about a month in Aashad maas (June-July)


    Some of the other things traditionally associated with rains are the hot coffee or tea and fried snacks like pakoda, vada and samosa. Hmm…mouth watering snacks! Rains prevent unnecessary movement of people and it thus heralds family time. It also brings the romance out of the closets. Well, that’s what our film industry has taught us. It is now a mandatory emotion associated with rains.:)


    Since we can’t sit together and enjoy the hot and spicy snacks, at least let us enjoy some rain songs and celebrate this season. What do you say?


    The biggest challenge in compiling the rain songs was to procure videos with good visuals. Since rains and romance go hand in hand, I had to spend some time searching for ‘decently’ picturised songs! Some of the film songs (mostly regional) I checked out were very crude and vulgar. So I couldn’t think of posting them here. Here is my compilation. Please add your favourites to this list. It would be nice to get to know some decent regional and international songs also featuring rain.

    Let us enjoy!



    Eternal romance of Raj Kapor and Nargis :)



    Most realistic rain song picturization. Only Amitabh's suit is a misfit!;)



    How wonderfully they are enjoying the rain!

    Nice to see young Amir Khan and the gorgeous Sonali Bendre.



    Haunting and beautiful.



    Rain and nature! A great combination.



    This song has a very nice music and lyrics to match. Kareena's over the top expressions somehow gel well here.

    I love rain or shine with hoof beat. Little shimmy and sway to go with that drizzle.

    Amala is gorgeous in her yellow dress. She is grace supreme. She is not renowned in the industry for her dance talent though she is classical trained and I rank her as one of the best dancers in both Indian and Western form of that era. Her swing in the dance is light-tapped and just perfect to that melody.

    Re: the song, there is no overt rain, just mist and fog, but with preemptive umbrellas, I assume it would have rained romance by the end of the song. With ready umbrellas and impending rain, I assume this song is eligible, if not, one of my favs. The song appeals in a drizzle and tenebrous and diesel backdrop unlike other natural rain songs. But, still beats even the natural harness in an intense but shadowy liaison in a dingy street.

    Nice additions.

    I recently saw this nice song featuring the same couple Amala and Nagarjuna. Singers are S Janaki and SPB.

    Coincidentally while reading this it’s raining here Geeta :sweatsmile:;). Even I love the smell of earth when it rains . For this weather hot snacks like pakora,
    Bhajji makes the moment complete :hearteyes:

    Well my fav rain songs are below !


    Well the name of the movie , Varsham meaning rain in Telugu ,says it all .
    I think it was released during my school days. And whenever it was hot I used to expect rain and when it finally rains I use to sing this song :cheer:



    Already I was a huge fan of Nani from Ashtachamma - His debut movie. After watching the combination of Nani and Nitya in Ala modalaindi , I was eagerly waiting if there is same pair in any other movie. , luckily Sega was released. I just love this song , its so soothing and love the expressions of Nitya!



    SRK!!!! My fav actor and one of his best movies! I love the steps in this song along with kids
