1. Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya - Title Tack

The current rage on every playlist - the title track of the movie - Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya has the whole nation grooving to its beats.

The song starts with a soft sonic beat that continues to anchor the song till the end. It sets the mood for the song, drawing listeners into its emotional landscape right from the beginning. The moderate tempo and percussion elements allow the melody and vocals to shine.

Shaik Jani Basha choreographs the dance and the song is voiced by Raghav, Tanishk Bagchi & Asees Kaur. The simple yet stylish dance moves, and easily imitable hook steps have made it a favorite for all.

2. Sher Khul Gaye

With Hrithik Roshan dominating the screen with Deepika Padukone, this dance number is all glam galore. The dance moves are easy to follow, the tunes contagious, and the beats - highly energetic.

The music of Sher Khul Gaye was composed by Vishaal,  and Shekhar, and lyrics by Kuma. The dance sequence is choreographed by Bosco and Ceaser.

The choreographer duo are known for their innovative and engaging dance routines, the choreography of this song likely features a blend of various dance styles, including contemporary, Bollywood, and possibly some elements of hip-hop or street dance. It perfectly compliments the lively tempo and rhythm of the music.

3. Besharam Rang

When the first teaser of the song was released, it set the screens on fire, garnering a whopping 100 million views on YouTube. The unputdownable team of music composers, Vishal-Shekhar with lyricist Kumar came out with an unapologetic musical track that celebrates beauty in the most audacious manner. It is aptly choreographed by  Bosco and Ceaser.

The choreography of "Besharam Rang" features a fusion of different dance styles, incorporating elements of Bollywood, hip-hop, and some traditional Indian dance forms. This eclectic mix of styles would add variety and dynamism to the choreography, appealing to a vast audience base.

4. Param Sundari

A. R. Rahman’s music, Shreya Ghoshal’s voice, Ganesh Acharya’s dance moves - all put together and essayed on screen by Kriti Sanon followed by 600 supporting dancers - Param Sundari is the lead single of the 2021 film - Mimi.

The song starts with a playful and lively chorus, followed by a short but attention-grabbing bassline. And then you have Shreya Ghoshal's powerful singing piercing through all of that bringing to life the most captivating lyrics written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

The song falls on track of a full-on dance number that not only keeps us engaged till it lasts but also lingers in the mind long after the song is over.

Coming to the dance - it is a jubilation of playfulness and high energy vibe. Ganesh Acharya - the dance master known for popular dance sequences such as Beedi Jalayi Le (Omkara) and  Hawan Kund (Bhaag Milkha Bhaag), creates the magic afresh with hardcore Bollywood dance steps in Param Sundari. Invariably, this song stands out in the whole film.

5. Dhoom Again

Well, what attracts you most to this song? Is it the dance or is it the ever-enigmatic Hrithik Roshan? While there is no denying the fact that Hrithik is the greatest of all visual treats when he has his dancing shoes on. He makes everything around just blur out in the backdrop. And the title track of the movie Dhoom 2 is no exception.

Ace choreographer Shiamak Davar choreographed the dance and still vouches for the fact that it was a treat to choreograph for Hrithik. The track opens to a suave backdrop filled with industrial props, dancers in sporty casuals displaying smooth body movements and intricate footwork. Enter Hrithik in ragged jeans, a tattered vest, and a piece of scarf hanging around his neck, swaying to the beats of the song.

First shot in silhouette and then brought into light the chiseled physique of the lead actor keeps the gazes fixed on him for as long as he is seen on the screen and makes you want for more when he is not. Need we say more?

6. Kamli

A performer that moves like liquid electricity, should be able to keep the eyeballs fixed on her for as long as she dances, one bat of an eyelid and she is expelled. This is the disclaimer with which the song is introduced in the movie - Dhoom 3. Well, both the dance moves and the dancer Katrina Kaif live up to the promise.

Shakti Mohan choreographed the dance and also performed some of the stunts in the dance sequence. The song was written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, music composed by Pritam, and voiced by Sunidhi Chauhan.

7. London Thumakda

An Indian wedding is incomplete without music and dance. And this song captures the spirit of the Sangeet ceremony in its totality.

Written by Anvita Dutt and brought to life by the musical genius Amit Trivedi, "London Thumakda" is a melodic treat voiced by Labh Janjua, Sonu Kakkad, and Neha Kakkar, each adding their unique flair to the song.

The dance sequence, as it is filmed, skillfully portrays a jovial family function with people dancing around a coy bride-to-be as their center of attraction.

But one thing that keeps it top of the mind for dance lovers is the song's beats. As opposed to intricately choreographed dance songs, the easy-going vibes of this song pull in a lot of non-dancers as well on the dance floor.

8. Kala Chashma

Since we are already talking about wedding songs and dances of Bollywood, here is another favorite that gets everyone grooving - Kala Chashma from the movie Baar Baar Dekho.

With Siddharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif dominating the screen on the tunes of Prem Hardeep & Kam Dhillon and the lyrics of Amrik Singh & Kumaar, the song has playback artists such as Amar Arshi, Badshah, Neha Kakkar, and Indeep Bakshi.

This dance song makes it to the list of favorites for its highly energetic beats, music, and keeping the spirits high with the non-stop rap by Badshah and Indeep.

9. Aankh Maarey

This song always tickled the dancer’s feet - in its original version that featured Arshad Warsi and also the latest avatar featuring Ranveer Singh. ‘One more remix!’ - as exclaimed by Karan Johar - done well!

The song gathered 1 billion views within a few hours of its release on YouTube. Syncopated steps and rhythmic footwork that keep up with the beats of the music. And the music? It is electrifying, to say the least. And with the added fun antics like the voiceover - ‘Tusshar Kapoor ki awaz mein…’ and then again switch to ‘Kumar Sanu ki awaz mein’ - there is no single dull moment in the song - neither while the song is playing nor after it stops playing.

10. Tamma Tamma Again

Yes. One more remix and it’s worth it. Why? Because it appeals to the younger crop of Bollywood movie buffs and also makes the older generation feel nostalgic. It has the old-world charm and the youthfulness of the present time.

It has an impact that gets both the parents and kids together on the dance floor. The beats of the song are infectious and it gets you into a grooving mode from the moment it starts playing.

That’s All? No Way!

There are still so many more - Swag Se Swagat, Jhoome Jo Pathan, Pyar Hota Kayi Baar Hai. And then if we look back a little further - Kajra Re, Nach Baliye, Darde Disco, Mukkala Mukabla, Oye Oye, and so many more. The list is never-ending and ever-expanding.
