When Emraan Hashmi started his acting career with ‘Footpath’ in 2003, starring Aftab Shivdasani and Bipasha Basu in lead roles, hardly anyone would have imagined that he would be one of the most bankable stars of the country in 2013. Today, he boasts of arguably the most popular song bank in the last 10 years. There is hardly any lead actor who has more song hits picturized on him/her than Hashmi since 2003. Almost every movie starring Emraan is memorable for its superb music. Let us figure out the ten best songs of this Bhatt Camp discovery.
1.) Woh Lamhe: This magical song from the movie ‘Zeher’ marked the debut of Atif Aslam in Bollywood. Song became a rage when released in 2005. The extremely passionate and high pitched vocals of Aslam infused ever-lasting life to this song. There is yet another brilliant composition ‘Agar Tum Mil Jao’ in the movie, but it is mostly remembered as a female song.
2.) Phir Mohabbat: The golden combination of Mithoon and Arijit , who are on cloud 9 today with the success of ‘Tum Hi Ho’ from Aashiqui 2, created this infectious and addictive song for Murder 2. Superbly filmed on Emraan and Jacqueline, song boasts of some impressive lyrics by Sayeed Quadri like – ‘Jab Jab Tere Paas Main Ek Sukoon Mila, Jise Main Tha Dhoondhta Aaya Wo Wajood Mila’
3.) Aashiq Banaya Aapne: Himesh Reshammiya entered into playback singing with the title song of ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ and won the ‘Filmfare Best Male Playback Award’ for his first song itself. Shreya Ghoshal has seductively crooned the female vocals on this sensuous number picturized on Emraan and Tanushree Dutta.
4.) Bheege Honth Tere: First hit movie of Emraan, Murder, turned out to be a path-breaking musical success that made singer Kunal Ganjawala an overnight household singing sensation. The lyrics are as direct as they can be. This song started the endless journey of our serial kisser as he matched perfectly with Mallika Sherawat’s dare- bare appearance.
5.) Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai: KK’s silky smooth vocals melt together with Pritam’s sweet arrangements to create a genuine song for the movie ‘Gangster’. Emraan performs effortlessly in the company of Kangana Ranaut in this wonderful track that only grows on you with more exposures.
6.) Pee Loon: Pritam composed this ever so romantic track for ‘Once Upon a Time In Mumbai’ that sweeps you right into the love that resides in its heart. Pritam intelligently mixes the class of the melody with the chartbuster tunes in this masterful composition which is soulfully crooned by Mohit Chauhan.
7.) Haal-E-Dil: Bhatt camp should be credited and appreciated for giving a huge performing platform to the deserving young talent in the country. Harshit Saxena, from Amul Voice of India, composed and sang this chartbuster song of Murder 2. Sayeed Quadri again excels with lines like – ‘Aye Kaash kaash yun hota, Har Shaam Saath tu Hota’.
8.) Zara Sa: The trio of Pritam, KK and Emraan has given some memorable melodies in Gangster, Jannat1& Jannat2. Emraan rocked the silver screen with his scorching presence alongside debutant Sonal Chauhan. Vocals by KK are ever so irresistible in this song as they take the listeners to the world of ecstasy.
9.) Tujhe Sochta Hoon: From Jannat to Jannat 2 now, this soulful track has the stamp of a typical Pritam-KK-Hashmi number. KK elevates the level of this composition by rendering ‘Sang Hoon Tere’ repeatedly in his unique style.
10.) Tu Hi Haqeeqat: Pritam showcases his versatility by composing this superb melody of Emraan-Soha starrer ‘Tum Mile’. Soulful vocals by Javed Ali add a perfect Sufi touch to this track. A simple mix of instruments brings this song to its height.
Other Emraan songs which are equally good as the ones in the list include Kaho Naa Kaho(Murder), Aapki Kashish (Aashiq Banaya Aapne), Jhalak Dikhlaja (Aksar), Teri Yaadon Mein (The Killer), To Fir Aao (Aawarapan), Beete Lamhe (The Train), Lambi Judayi (Jannat), Maahi (Raaz 2), Dil Ibadat (Tum Mile), Abhi Kuch Dino Se (Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji), Tera Deedaar Hua (Jannat 2), Deewaana Kar Raha Hai (Raaz 3) and Halka Halka(Chocolate).
