Spirit of Salman Khan - films and songs that I love of him

Since yesterday was Sallu's birthday, I thought I would talk about his hotness look in the 90s. Hey, I was able to persuade Shweta in finally adding Sallu on her hotness list because we both are Sallu fangirls. I'll have to admit that Sallu isn't looking as hot as he used to...but in all fairness, like I told Shweta, the guys she mentioned on her hotness post is at the peak of their careers, very unlike my shallow one but had to add in some oldies star. I can't look at the actors at their stage now because it's like me thinking my dad's friends look good, no way! Haha. Shallow me, I know.

In the spirit of the fun post by Shweta and Sallu's birthday. I'm going to list my favorite films of Sallu + his hotness, which I've seen all of Sallu's films except for God Tussi Great Ho and Yuvvraaj but I have it now but just haven't watched it yet. Instead of me pulling out everyone of his dvds, I just surf the net and took what I could find. I don't own all of Sallu's films on dvd yet but I hoped to soon.

A few of my favorites. No particular order. Just what comes to my mind right now. I'll just list ten.

Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya

One of my all-time favorite Sallu films. Just read here to know why. Not only is he smoking hot in the movie but my first experience watching in the theater and has Sallu and Kajol in a movie! Yah!! 1998, to me, is when Sallu was looking the hottest.

Below is my favorite song from the film.
"O O Jaane Jaana"

Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai

Dang, I used to own this film. Now, I have to get another copy! The film is about a rich womanizer stud, Sooraj, who finally falls in love with with Komal (Twinkle Khanna). However, his life turns upside down when he learns that he is the father of Kabir (
Aditya Narayan).

Below is my favorite song from the film.
"O Jana"
Oh gosh, almost as similar as above but trust me, different tunes. Ironically, this song features Sallu and Namrata, not Twinkle (heroine of the film)

Khamoshi: The Musical

Such an underrated film. Great performances from everyone!! You can read here for more details of the film.

Below is my favorite song from the film.
"Jaana Suno"


Another film I used to own and am upset I don't. I love this movie. This film is about the sweet Akash (Salman Khan), who as a child befriended the handicapped orphan Aman (Sanjay Dutt). Since then, Aman has been living with Akash's family and grew up as brothers. Aman is a poet but writes under the name Saagar. One of Aman/Saagar's fan Poojar (Madhuri Dixit) wants to meet the man behind the poems. However, Aman wants Akash to pretend to be Saagar because Aman feels that women wouldn't love him because he's poor and handicap. Akash and Pooja starts to fall in love. But Aman is in love with Pooja as well.

Below is my one of favorite song from the film. It's so hard for me to choose my absolute favorite but I chose a song that featured Salman.
"Dekha Hai Pehli Baar"

Ek Ladka Ek Ladki

Salman + Neelam. Yah! This film is actually a remake of the Hollywood film, Overboard, with Kurt Russels and Goldie Hawn. However, I like the Bollywood version more. The film is about a snobby girl name Renu (Neelam) that ends up in Raja's (Salman Khan) town. Renu's greedy uncle (Anupam Kher) wants Renu dead. Raj ends up rescuing Renu only to teach her a lesson since both met earlier on bad terms. Raj lies and tell Renu her name is Rani and that she is his wife and they have three children, which are his nephews. Over the course of time, both start to fall in love with each other. But will Raja continue with the lie and tell her truth? Or will the uncle reveal it all?

Below is my favorite song from the film.
"Kitna Pyar"

Karan Arjun

I freaking love this movie!!! I know many are going to cringe at the thought of it. This is the movie that showcase my Sallu's muscles. This film about two reincarnated brothers - Karan Arjun - who have been selfishly killed by Thakur (Amrish Puri). But with prayer and hope from their mother Durga (Rakee), they have been re-born as Vijay and Ajay. However, their in their present birth, they do not know each other.

Below is my one of favorite song from the film. It's so hard for me to choose my absolute favorite but I chose a song that featured Salman.
"Ek Munda"

Maine Pyar Kiya

If you haven't seen Maine Pyar Kiya, why?? Do it now! Sallu's debut film and Sooraj Barjatya's best. Read why it's one of my favorites.

Below is my favorite song from the film.
"Kabuta Ja Ja"

Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

I know many will not agree with this film choice. Many have found Sallu's character Sameer annoying but I loooved him! Love a man with a sense of humor. Vanraj was too boring for me. Some may argue that Sameer was too immature. I felt that Nandita loved Sameer and wasted her time trying to find him and suddenly gave up. When I first saw this film, I didn't like it. However, watching it again, it wasn't that bad, just didn't agree with how it ended. All I have to say is that I have my Sameer. :)

Below is one my favorite song from the film. It was so hard to choose only one song. Every time I hear it, brings tears to my eyes. So sad...
"Tadap Tadap"

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Wassup Dude? Yeah, I really like this movie. Even though Salman plays second fiddle to Shahrukh Khan. It's okay if Anjali can't make up her mind. I'll take Aman. If you don't know what this movie is about, what are you waiting for?

Below is one my favorite song from the film. Sallu looks so adorable!
"Sajan Ji Ghar Aaye"

Janam Samjha Karo

A case of "don't know what you got till it's gone." Chandni (Urmila Matondkar) is a singer and dancer at a night club where she meets Rahul (Salman Khan) and falls in love with him. When his uncle (Shammi Kapoor) comes in town and wants Rahul to settle down and stop womanizing. In order to get him off his back, Rahul convince Chandni to pretend to be his wife. When his uncle finally leaves, Rahul finally lets go of Chandni only to find out he actually fell in love with her.

Below is one my favorite song from the film.
"Love Hua"

I know I said only 10, but I added this extra one. It released in 2002 but Sallu was looking good and I enjoyed the film. There are shades of the Hollywood film, The Long Kiss Good Night.

Tumko Na Bhool Payenge

Below is one my favorite song from the film.
"Yeh Bekhudi"

Can't help it but other noted films of Sallu that I think he looks really good but may not Sallu's best films.

Auzaar (1997)

Song below - "I Love You"

Garv (2004)

Song below - "Hum Tumko Nigahon Mein"

Lucky (2005)

Song below - "Sun Zara"

Hey theBollywoodFan - I love AAA too but didn't want to include it cause I didn't like Sallu's look in the movie, hehehe. Tere Naam and Kyon Ki are both awesome films -- plus the characters he played wasn't all hotness material either. :D
