This is by no means an exhaustive list, feel free to jump in with your own suggestions. I’m just listing off the first songs that come to mind for me when I think about Indian movies set in America.
This is going to be heavy on the non-Hindi, for no particular reason, I’m just thinking of them today. Starting with “Columbus Columbus” from Jeans!
Moving on, “Edo Jaruguthondi” from Fidaa! America looks so beautiful here, and it’s the big empty flat part in the middle that Indian movies don’t usually show.
Moving over to Hindi for a second, “Yeh Dil Deewana” from Pardes.
“Manhatten” from English/Vinglish
Title song from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, something about getting the separate apartments and starting new lives feels very American to me. Plus, Philly looks pretty (or where ever it is that they filmed)
And grand finale, “Preity Woman”! That big American flag in the one shot just kills me.
