I often go gaga over Korean drama OST’s but I cannot deny the fact that there have been many Indian serials that have had wonderful title tracks and OST’s. Here is a list of some of the best Indian TV show title tracks and OST’s that I have loved for so many years. Songs whose lyrics I know by heart even after ten years. So, let the songs begin!
1. Mansha (Zee TV)
I loved this song as much as I loved the serial. And yes, that is Ram Kapoor in the video. Looks unrecognizable na? Well, this show came out way before he gained weight. Back then he was very slim.
2. Kitni Mohabbat Hain (NDTV Imagine)
This title track was as fresh as the show. The high pitched beginning of the track is just as impactful as the entire track itself.
3. Kahin Toh Hoga (Star Plus)
One of Star Plus’s most successful shows, Kahin To Hoga’s title track was very popular when it was first launched.
4. Kabhi Toh Nazar Milao (Sony TV)
This show did not have a long run but its title track stayed with me even after it ended.
5. Kitni Mast Hain Zindagi (MTV)
MTV’s first daily soap was about a young girl who comes to Mumbai to become a Radio Jockey. Its title track was peppy and captured the overall feel of the show. Click here to listen to its amazing track.
