There are so many beautiful tracks composed by Indian Musicians which never made it to the final cut of the movies. Some of them you may know and some you may not. One thing is for sure, No one should be devoid of a good piece of music. Here is our list.

  1. Aahista Aahista – Swades – Composed by The Mozart of Chennai – A R Rahmaan, This beautiful piece of music was edited out by an extremely long film of Ashutosh Gowariker’s cult classic of true patriotism – Swades. Though Gowarikar shot this beautiful lullaby sung bu Udit Narayan and Sadhna Sargam but it never made it to the final cut. If you are having a sleepless night, believe me, put this on loop, this gonna do the magic.

  2. Haan Maine Chhukar Dekha Hai – Black – Though the original score of Black does not have any song as such except this one which was composed by Monty and sung Gayatri Iyer. You have seen the world of Mitchelle Mcnally but this song just gives you goosebumps by taking you inside her world. Magic!

  3. Ranjha- Ranjha – Ravan – Again an amazing composition by Rahman, voices has given by Rekha Bhardwaj, Javed Ali, Anuradha Sriram but the magic was done by Gulzar with his lyrics. Though it was not completely edited from the film but only a 30-second version was used. Though the full song will leave you to crave for even more.

  4. Yaara-Yaara – Hum Tum – Listen to this song, but the melody will remind you of a different film. Yes! Fanna. Hum- Tum and Fanna both are directed by Kunal Kohli and music was given by Jatin Lalit. Sung by the magical duo of Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, Kunal was not able to use this song in Hum Tum so later they used the same melody in the movie fanna with song – Chanda Chamke.

  5. Yeh Hum Aa Gaye Hai Kahan – Veer Zaara – You may have listened to this melody by Madan Mohan from the love epic of Veer Zaara directed by Yash Chopra,  but it is quite interesting to know that they haven’t used this song in the first release of the film. They later added this in few versions. This one was sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Udit Narayan.

  6. Jaane Tu Meri Kya Hai – Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa –  Again a Rahmaan composition from one of the best romantic comedy of our times. Abbas Tyrewala even shot the both male and female versions of the song but later dropped them in the final edit. Female Version sung by Runa Rizwi while the male voice was given by Sukhwinder Singh.


  7.  Chalte Chalte ( Female Version )  – Mohabbatein – Aditya Chopra’s second directorial venture after Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge was a landmark in terms of music because Aditya tried to launch not only new actor but also gave chances to many new voices likeShweta Pandit, Sonali Bhatawdekar, Pritha Mazumdar. This female version of Chalte Chalte is equally beautiful.

  8. Chocolate Lime Juice – Hum Aapke Hain Kaun – With 14 songs in total Hum Aapke Hain Kaun is still considered as one of the most successful musical of Bollywood. But this cute song was dropped from the initial edit of the released film but later when the movie was re-released it becomes the part of the new edit. You can easily recognize the voice of legendary Lata Mangeshkar in this song composed by Ram Laxman.

  9. Ho Gaya Hai Pyar Tumse – Tanu Weds Manu Returns – The blockbuster romantic comedy sequel by Anand L Rai had many hits songs like – Banno and Bawari but this beautiful composition can gain your attention equally. They released this video which was not exactly the video of the song but never the less fits the feel of the song. This beautiful voice is of Dev Negi and composition is of Krshna Solo.

  10.  Main Hoon Woh Aasmaan  – Krrish – Krrish was a blockbuster in terms of box office also in terms of music. Rajesh Roshan composed some really good melodies but this one never able to made it to the film. Sung by Rafaqat Amanat Ali and Alka Yagnik is a melody that will stay with you for quite some time.

  11. Ikk Kudi – Udta Punjab  – Okay, you may say that it was there in the film, yes it was but just a very small version not the full song. Later Vasan Bala directed this small video for the promotional reasons which never get attached with the movie. This is definitely a beautiful video also of the melodious composition by Amit Trivedi.
