There was something magical about the 90s. The simple pleasure that one got from doing ordinary things was priceless – be it listening to music on a walkman, playing antakshari during power cuts or chatting with friends on a landline phone. On this National Youth Day, let us relive that nostalgia of the 90s. Here are a few songs, movies and TV shows of that decade that will surely take you back in time.

1. Made in India – Alisha Chinoy

This song needs no introduction. ‘Made in India’ by Alisha Chinoy ruled the 90s pop culture. And who can forget the hottest Indian supermodel Milind Soman who made the women swoon in the song?

2. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaenge

This blockbuster is one of the biggest Bollywood hits of all time. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaenge catapulted Shah Rukh Khan to a superstar status and set the benchmark for new age romantic movies.

3. Small Wonder

Despite being an American show, Small Wonder gained a cult status in India too because of its effervescent characters and its innocently sweet story line.

4. Hum Paanch

Remember the crazy sisters and a talking portrait? Hum Paanch was one of the longest running shows on TV in the 90s. And guess what – the family may be coming back together on your screen as the show is being revamped.

5. Ishk Tera Tadpave – Sukhbir

No wedding dance can ever be complete without this evergreen song. The song ‘Ishk Tera Tadpave‘ by Sukhbir is still a favourite of many DJs.

6. Andaz Apna Apna

This light hearted comedy’s dialogues still rule our mind. Remember, “Teja me hu, mark idhar he“? It’s still the best choice if you are looking for a few laughs.

7. Macarena

This song remained at the top of ‘Hot 100 Singles chart worldwide’ for a record time. The foot tapping number still remains as popular and has garnered over 5 million views on YouTube.

8. Shaktimaan

Admit it that you bought a Shaktimaan costume and tried to jump off the bed thinking you could fly. Our very own desi flying superhero had such a hold on his audience that Sunday afternoons were reserved only for his show.

The most iconic film of the 90s – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai that spiralled a whole new genre of larger than life romantic stories in the Hindi cinema.
