INDEX OF HINDI FILM SONGS & THE RAAGAS THEY ARE BASED ON

All the songs are listed alphabetically in each list, the 1st song of every alphabet is in BOLD.
  1. HINDI FILM SONGS & THE RAAGA THEY ARE BASED ON (A-B)
  2. HINDI FILM SONGS & THE RAAGA THEY ARE BASED ON (C-D)

This list is far from being complete... i am still building it from notes scribbled & scattered around me... the lists where raagas come first & the compositions based on them later, are much more exhaustive...
I have also added songs here that i am not sure of the raaga yet. Please leave comments if you know the raaga & i will update here.
If you would like to know about any song's raaga, please place that too in the comments & i will try to provide the answer.

    Your list is absolutely awesome. Thanks a lot for posting. A few requests: could you please add songs from Lajawanti (Balraj Sahni/Nargis) such as Ga mere man ga; and Ek hanska joda.

    Chalte chalte yunhi koi from Pakeezah and Devta tum ho mera sahara (Daera-1953, MD-Jamal Sen) are based on the same raag. Could you please tell me which one it is?
