Rim Jhim Girey Saawan

A melodious, sweet celebration of the monsoons from the 70s. This song is also unforgettable because of the picturization on one of the favourite couples Amitabh Bachhan and Moushmi Chatterjee in the endless mumbai rains!

This haunting line of the 50s is still hummable and one of the most favourite monsoon film tunes heard.

This is another addictive song of Bollywood in the ageless voices of Mohammad Rafi and Geeta Dutt.
