As the film celebrates 8 years, here’s looking at some of the songs of the movie that have attained an immortal status in the audience’s hearts:

‘Deewani Mastani’

‘Deewani Mastani’ may have got instant popularity because of Deepika Padukone’s ethereal looks as dance steps, but the music truly transports you to a different world of poetry altogether. It’s a perfect blend of contemporary music and classical music, which resonates so well with you that you feel like you’re sitting in that mehfil listening to the song being performed right in front of your eyes.

‘Aayat’

‘Aayat’ wasn’t an instant hit, but over the years, it has grown to win us over with his hauntingly eerie composition which echoes in your minds for a long time. The song evokes emotions that are so profound that you’re transported to the world and landscape of love. The song will grow on you like old wine. The more you listen to it, the more you keep seeing newer nuances and keep enjoying it even more.

‘Malhari’

‘Malhari’ was a massive blockbuster right when it was released, and even to date you can hear it at any party or festive occasion. The song reverberates through the screens and makes you feel the high energy of the composition. It’s a celebratory theme that people love to dance to always. To add to it the raw energy of Ranveer Singh in the song’s video makes you want to match up to his energy levels. It’s an overall cinematic experience.

‘Mohe Rang Do Laal’

‘Mohe Rang Do Laal’ is a classical canvas. You’re taken through the cultural richness of India through this song. The nuances that the singer is able to bring to the song make you feel like one with the things happening on screen. It gives you a pompous feel of the country’s rich cultural heritage. The visuals are so aesthetic that you’re turned on but at the same time, you’re not feeling vulgar at any point.

‘Pinga’

‘Pinga’ is another dance number that you can still hear even today during stage shows and dance performances. The attention to detail that has been put behind both the female vocals makes you want to keep listening to the song over and over again. Not to forget the beautiful onscreen jugalbandi of Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone makes you want to match steps to steps with the thumping beats of the dance number.
