We are traveling back to the 90s, 1995 to be exact, to introduce you with a musical motion picture called “Gulabi”. Due to its immense popularity, in 2001, it was remade as “Aashiq” in Hindi. The film’s soundtrack consists of 5 songs, and “Ee Velalo Neevu” became a classic hit which is why you should definitely check it out. It was sung by Sunitha Upadrashta who actually made her singing debut in this film.

“Saptapadi” is another Telugu movie which won the Award for Best Feature Film on National Integration. All nine songs of this soundtrack were composed by K. V. Mahadevan and the one which is still popular – “Nemaliki Nerpina Nadakalivi” (Peacock dance)” was written by Veturi Sundararama Murthy and performed by S. Janaki.
6. Pillaa Raa
Releasing the song “Pillaa Raa” sung by Anurag Kukarni before the premiere of the movie “RX 100”, turned out to be the best marketing strategy. It spread around as a wildfire and people loved it which is why they decided to go a see this 2018 romantic action film that stars Kartikeya Actor and Payal Rajput.
7. The Karma Theme
Furthermore, we are going to mention “The Karma Theme”. This song was not featured in the mystery-thriller film called “U Turn”, but instead it was used as a promotional tune. In fact, there is not a single song in this entire film, only some background music. This title number was sung by Anirudh Ravichander, one of the best-selling Indian artists.
8. Maate Vinadhuga
If you enjoy watching comedies, then you should definitely see “Taxiwaala” (Taxi driver). However, we are here to talk about music so our recommendation is to listen to the song “Maate Vinadhuga”. The critics noted that you will love this tune even more once you watch the movie and fully understand the lyrics.
“Peniviti” is a promotional song for the film “Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava”. The main reason why people love this song is because of the focus on meaningful lyrics created by Ramajogayya Sastry. It perfectly describes the feeling and fears of women for their men.
10. Bharat Ane Nenu
“Bharat Ane Nenu” (The song of Bharat) will make you want to dance while listening to it and watching the movie of the same title. The entire soundtrack was composed by the brilliant Devi Sri Prasad, and three out of five songs were released as singles before the film came out.
