IN Bollywood Movies PIANO was an important Instrument to create a song situation specially in Golden Era of Bollywood.Most leading Actors would be seen playing Piano and singing a song.Nowadays this situation is missing in our movies.It used to be a clever ploy of the film director to introduce a song even when the situation didn't demand it.Sometimes a song starts with a piano and lateron switch to dance or some other scenes.

In my knowledge the first Piano Song was picturised as a piano song. P Jairaj is playing the piano and this song is sung by Renuka Devi. Her father V H Desai looks on and later the villain Rama Sukul too comes in and watches her sing with disapproval.The song is from “Bhaabhi” (1938).Singer-Renuka Devi, Lyrics-J S Kashyap, MD-Saraswati Devi
Jhuki aayi re badariya saawan ki from Bhabhi 1938

Here is a timeless classic  song. “Jawaan hai muhabbat haseen hai zamaanaa” is sung by Noorjehaan and it is picturised on herself. The unforgettable lyrics were written by Tanveer Naqvi and music was composed by Naushad.for the film Anmol Ghadi 1946

Jawaan hai muhabbat haseen hai zamaanaa

Andaj 1949 movie is a movie in whic 4 Piano songs were picturised,all these songs were popular i am posting here this song "Ham aaj kahin dil kho baithe" Dilip Kumar sits at the piano at night and sings this song. And Nargis arrives with her pet dog and watches Dilip Kumar sing the song, clutching her dog like a pillow.The song is sung by Mukesh. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist and Naushad composed the music. 

Ham aaj kahin dil kho baithe

This song is a piano song, where Dilip Kumar sits at the piano This song is from “Baabul” (1950). The song was sung by Talat Mahmood and Shamshad Begum 

Milte hi aankhen dil huaa deewaana kisi ka

Here is one such song from “Anhonee” (1952). This is a song sung by Talat Mehmood and picturised on Raj Kapoor. It is a rare combination of singer and actor, but the song itself is quite well known and it is in fact a Talat Mehmood classic.

Main dil hoon ek armaan bharaa 

This song is sung by Lata and picturised on Nargis. This song is written by Hasrat Jaipuri and music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.The Film ia Aawara 1951
Jabse balam ghar aaye

Here is a piano song from the movieMiss Merry 1957. It is a piano song in the sense that Gemini Ganeshan sits at the piano and he is supposed to play it, though one can not recognise the sound of piano but the music of tabla, flute and other instruments that one can hear.

Ham pyaar me jalne waalon ko chain kahaan

 It is a piano song. Though the picturisation does not show the piano being played again after the beginning of the song.Shailendra as the lyricist and Shankar Jaikishan as music directors have created a masterpiece which has been sung so beautifully by Lata. The film is Anari 1959

                                              Tera jaana dil ke armanon ka lut jaana

Another great song on Piano from the movie Maya 1961. Dev Anand is playing Piano. Here is this song- “Koyi sone ke dil waala koyi chaandi ke dil waala”.Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist and music by Shankar Jaikishan.

Dheere dheere machal ae dil e bekaraar

In this song Shammi Kapoor is playing Piano,it is a sad song  This song had become a big rage during its time. Rafi’s voice, followed by Shankar Jaikishan’s music that has led to this humdinger of a song.
