Hindi Film Songs And Dialogues In Between

By  | 

Do you think you could do without having people convey their thoughts/feelings to you or vice versa? Communication is not about just pouring out words to another, every word carries its own meaning. Man is a social being. And to live among others, he needs to communicate with them. Communication in relationships is very important. Any type of relationship is meaningless if one cannot express emotions or feelings. That is the reason we have dialogues or even monologues made. To communicate between ourselves or express it to the world.
The dictionary meaning of dialogue means – a conversation between two or more people as a feature of a book, play, or film. According to wikipedia it is a written or spoken conversational exchange between two or more people, and a literary and theatrical form that depicts such an exchange. Monologue is another part of expressing oneself. Apart from these songs have been used as a part of communication too. Mainly as the expression of love. These songs express so much within the time of 3 – 4 minutes. The entire content of one’s heart is poured in it and communicated to the respective person.

There have been some songs in HFM which are not mere songs but they are also decorated either with a dialogue or a monologue. These narrative lines in the songs are either in form of shayari or mere normal dialogues/monologues. But they do not interfere with the flow of the song, on the contrary they enhance the beauty of the song.

Here are a few such songs HFM which include a dialogue/ monologue. Which one is your favourite? Can you add more to the list?

1. Tere bina zindagi se koi – Your heart just melts when you hear this famous dialogue between Suchitra Sen and Sanjeev Kumar. Along with the music, these lines form the soul of the song, taking the song to some another level.

2. Duniya bananewaale kya tere – This philosophical song from Teesri Kasam has Raj Kapoor narrating the love story of Mahua – a beautiful girl. Raj Kapoor mesmerises you with his narration. Look at the way he asks – Mann samajhti hai na aap? It pierces you!!

3. Zara nazron se kehdo ji – When in love, the heart is bound to become a poet. Here is an example with Biswajeet following his ladylove Waheeda Rehman.


4. Aaj ki raat ye kaisi raat – A sensuous song from Aman (1967) rendered so effectively by Mohammed Rafi, while Saira Banu is whispering the sweet nothings in Rajendra Kumar’s ears.


5. Dil ki umangein hai jawan – A fun song picturised on Nalini Jaywant, Dev Anand and Pran. It becomes hilarious when Pran is urged to sing – Gaaiye na kya mushkil hai?

6. Nafrat karnewaalon ke seene mein – Another song from a Dev Anand film. Its a monologue/ shayari by Kishore Kumar himself.


7. Ye kahan aa gaye hum – I bet the Amitabh monologue in this song in his rich baritone is as famous or even more as the song itself. Main aur meri tanhaai……isn’t this a beginning of another story?

Adding 4 more songs to the list. Choosing from a long list suggested by friends and readers!!

8. Naino waali ne haaye mera dil – A Madan Mohan beauty which needs a mention, when it comes to this theme.

9. Meri pyari Bindu – Have you ever heard a song as spontaneous as this one? A delightful song from a delightful film. Guru Guru……Anuradha nahi Bindu Bindu!!!

10. Iss deewane ladke koSarfaraosh, which was praised critically as well as commercially. This playful song with dialogues in between by Aamir Khan certainly raised the romantic quotient.

11. Jhini mini jhini – Vishal Bhardwaj’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth. The song Jhini mini brings out the talent of the director, actors and the singers together.
