In the lives of a common man, patriotism is a dormant sentiment which is aroused usually when there is an India vs Pakistan cricket match, a terrorist attack or any natural calamity. And every now and then, when we see a film with a patriotic theme, we are reminded of our love for our country. In most cinema halls in Mumbai, the National Anthem is played before the film starts and it is a wonderful sight to see a hall full of people standing at rapt attention. To celebrate our 65th year of independence, we bring you a collection of songs from recent Bollywood movies that made our eyes moist and our chests swell with the pride of being an Indian. Bollywood Life wishes a very Happy Independence Day to all. Jai Hind!
