Music is Extra Territorial : 4 Indian Songs That Became International Hits

Published

on

Here are 4 Indian songs that went viral across the globe before ‘going viral’ was a thing!

1. Mundian To Bach Ke

In 2002, Panjabi MC jammed cross-cultural airwaves with their song “­Mundian To Bach Ke“ that went on to become a breakout international smash hit the top 20 in at least 15 countries. Sung in Punjabi, the fusion hip-hop groove went on to sell an estimated 10 million copies worldwide. The record also reached the number one spot in Italy and Belgium, and number two spot in Germany (where it sold over 100,000 units in two days!).

2. I Am A Disco Dancer

Released in 1982, the movie ‘Disco Dancer’ rocked the popularity charts at home and across the Soviet Union. Throughout the 80s, the dance halls at Russian summer resorts resounded with the beats of ‘I Am a Disco Dancer’, instantly transforming Mithun into one of the most loved next-gen Indian actors in the country.

Here’s an interesting anecdote from those days: When Mikhail Gorbachev visited India, Rajiv Gandhi introduced him to Amitabh Bachchan as India’s greatest superstar. It is believed that Gorbachev’s reply was that his wife only knew Raj Kapoor and his daughter only knew Mithun Chakraborty!

3. Tunak Tunak Tun

Most songs fade from public memory in no time, while few manage to stay a little longer on their minds. Then there are those iconic ones that go on to build a cult following for themselves. Daler Mehndi’s 1998 song ‘Tunak Tunak Tun’ is one of these.

From Germany to Korea, the song became a rage among youngsters across the world after its release in the late 1990s. Mehndi’s iconic Bhangra steps in the video were also practised and replicated by these ardent fans. Recently, martial arts expert and megastar Jackie Chan shook a leg to Mehndi’s tunes at the 17th Shanghai Film Festival (the video went viral in no time).

4. Why This Kolaveri Di

Released in 200, the song “Kolaveri Di” became an instant hit and was the most searched video on Youtube by November 2011. Despite being a slow-beat track, the song’s catchy colloquial lyrics and amazingly groovy rendition (by Dhanush) also ensured that it became a global rage overnight, quickly garnering more than 125 million views (the first Indian song to reach this coveted mark). Voted the Top Song by CNN in 2012, Kolaveri Di also stood third in the global music list giving a tough time to Lady Gaga.

Wrong Number

Wrong Number is a tickling comical romance with chaos, confusion and barrel of laughs directed by Sumit Kumar. Season 1 of the web series celebrated great success and with more belly laughs the season 2 is released.

Let’s catch up with the season 1 and recall where we left!

Teenage love is obsessive right, something that cannot be forgotten easily and surely it’s hard enough letting it go. The story begins with Khushi, an MBBS student, who in hopeless memories of her school time boyfriend Rajat, texts him as a daily ritual of her life in hope of mending things with him. Adding to the humor is the unexpected twist; the number that belonged to his ex-boyfriend is now assigned to an engineering student Karan. Karan receives all the messages intended for Rajat and shares the obvious confusion with his roommate who suggests him of taking the disguise of Rajat and talking to Khushi. The situation is certainly funny and it only gets funnier. And while you’re laughing out loud at these hilarious incidents don’t be blinded to notice the building romantic elements of the plot.

Everything is goes well they bond and talk creating a realistic mirage for Khushi. Her roommate Ruchi, although, is quite sceptic of the situation and suggests her to call. Trapped huh! They find a way out and his roommate tells Khushi that he is not there. The illusion is well plastered with lies, until one day when the wall of illusion decided to collapse and Khushi calls with an unknown number and catches him in the act.

She is furious at this deception by Karan. Karan is equally sad and guilty of his act, not to forget he maintained the lie out of his fondness! The tension is built in the scene and a sense of curiosity is evoked. However, with a comical relief and with his roommate’s advice he finally convinces Khushi. The season ended with a phone call that leaves our curiosity lingering.

Now stop pondering about that phone call and watch season 2 to unravel the plot ahead. Adios!

Indian Idol found a true gem in Sunny Hindustani, the winner of season 11.

Harshly struck by poverty, his mother often borrowed rice and serials from people to fill their belly. Struck by his unfortunate conditions, Sunny was determined to do something to free himself and his mother from the shackles of poverty. He went to audition as a singer in Indian Idol season 11 where he revealed that he has a great love for music and his only source of learning singing was his mobile on which he played songs and sang along. With no professional training and support, Sunny emerged as a phenomenal singer and left the judges awestruck. He received a standing ovation by all three judges who were amazed by this young boy’s exceptional talent.

Creating magic since his audition, Sunny has won millions of hearts throughout his Indian Idol journey. During his auditions, Vishal Dadlani embraced him with a hug and expressed his disbelief over his singing talent. He received wide gained recognition when Anand Mahindra took to Twitter to express his heartfelt praises for Sunny. Sunny’s story is an inspiration to India’s youth, the strength and determination he showcased, defying all economic barriers to prove himself and fend for his family is undeniably praiseworthy.

Truly, one of the most talented singers on Indian Idol, Sunny lifts the final trophy of Indian Idol. We wish him all the very best for his future. We also hope that more and more talented individuals get a chance to prove themselves, to show the world what they’re capable of, and, that nothing can stop them.
