Kumaar and the Catchy Songs of Bollywood

By  | 



If you love listening to peppy Bollywood music and like to shake a leg to the latest catchy songs played in parties and pubs, there’s a big chance that you’re listening to a song written by lyricist Rakesh Kumar, known as Kumaar in the professional circles.

Hailing from the northern part of the country, there’s a definite flavour of the region that he brings to his work. But the words are selected so meticulously they blend in beautifully with the Hindi words and we get a nice amalgamation of a song which has a certain rhythmic feel to it. Remember the hit bhangra song Ishq tera Tadpave by Sukhbir? Yup, that one is written by Kumaar. I agree that his lyrics are more to do with catchy phrases rather than being poetic, but what we get as a result after adding correct music is something that the young generation loves.

If you listen more closely, you’ll feel as if the words in his songs are not out of this world but words which are used but everybody in their daily lives. Imagine finding such lyrics in accompaniment of a foot-tapping music. What you get is a hummable song which doesn’t require you to be a trained singer. That’s the beauty of Kumaar’s songs; you can actually sing them without thinking of getting the wording wrong. Maybe that’s the reason many people prefer to keep his songs as status updates, caller tunes and also for karaoke parties.

It’s not that the lyrics are all about instant happiness. There are many songs that Kumaar has written which have a deep meaning to it and they too have become equally popular but there’s one thing common that these songs too have the simplicity that appeals to every individual.

Here is a collection of his songs which have become a permanent feature on many people’s playlists for various reasons. Do tell us which ones you like and why.
