The Top 250+ Best Sad Hindi Songs of All Time

Looking for best sad and emotional songs of Bollywood?

Bollywood is a sea of emotions. Our films are a part of our life. They are a mirror image of our society. And the vice versa is also true. Bollywood learns from the society and incorporates it and the society does the same.

Our movies can make one cry by the sheer circumstances that are picturised and the audience connects it with their own life. To that every one of us some time or other have been sad by our life affairs. That time the lyrics of these songs just feel special and give a whole new meaning. I wonder how lyricists pen those magnificent lines that touches our heart and soul. Listening to such songs is therapeutic and gives us the power to cope with the situation

For that I have this list of sad songs right from pre-independence era to the latest one that we can find in 2015. I am pretty sure that the below list would satisfy people from all age groups. And to make it easy to find the songs I have divided the listings year/decade wise. So if you are looking for old sad songs then you can find so in the upper part. For the newer ones scroll down for songs post 90's.

The below is a collection of more than 250 Hindi sad songs. Also you can find some slow sad songs in this list. I can safely say that you can't find such a massive and comprehensive list of Bollywood sad songs anywhere on the internet. To compile the below collection it took hell lot a time researching, listening scores of songs on Youtube etc. But hard work does pay of handsomely and I am extremely happy with the below list. I hope you can include it in your playlist.
