The 25 Best Hindi Film Songs of 2021 Bollywood

Until the late 2000s’, Bollywood (or the Hindi film industry) sizeably contributed to the list of best songs made every year in Indian cinema. The past few years saw dwindling standards and a never-ending fad of remixed tunes, which not only dampened the industry’s reputation but it also witnessed music lovers reaching out to other avenues for quality local music. 2021, for those who enjoy original music, was a reasonably good year. However, a lot of these numbers did not achieve the popularity they deserved thanks to the cacophonous atmosphere of reused tunes.
