Interestingly most of the songs of Hindi movies or albums are based on romantic themes or has relation with love related aspects of one’s life which in turn have many sub categories such as love at first sight, complaints, one sided love songs etc. Also there is an element of disloyalty in love relationship which is beautifully narrated by poets.
In any particular film you’ll find at least 2-3 categories of Hindi songs prominent. As most of the movie scripts have ups and downs – similarly the songs too comply with what the scripts demands. Take for example, in any movie or album songs, you’ll find there would be a romantic song, a sad song, and a silly song. Most of the scripts of Hindi movies revolve around simple love stories and that’s the reason why songs related to this category forms a major chunk of lyrics writing and it can be very high.
Interestingly people still listen to them as and when a new album comes in the market and one of the reasons for this is the youth factor. Major revenue of the industry comes from youth’s and their predominant interest is love stories which can take any form of representation – it can be an action love story, a suspense love story, etc. Most of the musicians and song writers find this category from writing perspective easy and imaginative because they did their job under this genre many times.
