Sung by Hariharan and composed by A.R. Rahman, ‘Roja Jaaneman’ is a romantic melody from the movie Roja.

The song's soothing tune and heartfelt lyrics continue to captivate listeners even decades after its release.

‘Tu Hi Re’ from Bombay (1995)

This iconic song from the movie Bombay, composed by A.R. Rahman and penned by Mehboob, features Hariharan's mesmerizing vocals. The song beautifully captures the emotions of love and longing between the lead couple (Arvind Swami and Manisha Koirala), making it one of the most beloved tracks in Indian music.

‘Baahon Ke Darmiyan’ from Khamoshi: The Musical (1996)

Baahon Ke Darmiyan’, from the movie Khamoshi: The Musical, is a hauntingly beautiful duet sung by Hariharan and Alka Yagnik. The song's haunting melody and heartfelt lyrics make it a standout track in the film's soundtrack. This track also features Manisha Koirala, along with Salman Khan.

‘Chappa Chappa’ from Maachis (1996)

Hariharan's soulful rendition of ‘Chappa Chappa’ from the movie Maachis is a powerful protest song with poignant lyrics. Composed by Vishal Bhardwaj and penned by Gulzar, the song captures the essence of revolution and struggle. Suresh Wadkar, another iconic singer, also stands out in this number.

‘Nahin Saamne’ from Taal (1999)
