The Great Musical Hits Of Bollywood in the 20th Century

Right from the advent of Indian cinema in , musicals with song numbers have been a regular feature in Bollywood.Initially Bollywood music has drawn its inspiration from numerous traditional sources such as Ramleelanautankitamasha and Parsi Theatre, as well as from the West, Pakistan, and other Indian musical subcultures.
