Monsoon Special: It’s time to update your playlist with these 5 iconic songs

Monsoon is finally here and we have already started to smell the earthy scent. The rhythm of falling rain has different meanings for different people. It can be love, happiness, joy, bliss, romance, intensity, poetry, drama, or any combination. If your meaning of monsoon in Hindi films is musical magic then you are at the right place.

Monsoon is the time to enjoy cosy time with your loved ones or some me-time. Eating chai and pakoras or a sip of your favourite coffee with some cookies, no matter how you enjoy the beautiful weather and cool air when it comes to relishing the rains, listening to train-themed songs is an absolute must.

As usual, Bollywood is full of songs that make you want to let go of your inhibitions and enjoy nature’s most beautiful gift.
