The 90s saw Bollywood set a new benchmark in the Indian film industry. The movies and music it produced gave us some of the most memorable and iconic classics, which we continue to go back to, time and again.

No matter how old, songs from that era will always evoke endless memories of the past and continue to hold sentimental value in our lives.
