BollyCurry takes a quick look through the best dance numbers aka choreographies of the year!


2013 came across some awe inspiring and magnificent music that gave birth to some equal and excellent pieces of choreography. As the year rapidly draws to an end, BollyCurry, in no particular order, takes a quick look through the best dance numbers aka choreographies of the year!

"Badtameez Dil"

Being one of the best dancers in Tinsel Town at the moment, Ranbir Kapoor has sizzled to the core in this exclusive dance number from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Complimenting him with grace is co-star Deepika Padukone who did full justice in matching his steps. There's no doubt that this Pritam composed song sung by Benny Dayal and Shefali and choreographed by Remo D'Souza has wooed the audience to such extend that they can go badtameez any day, any time!

"Balam Pichkari"

Who doesn't love to play with colors and go crazy with some fun dance steps and lots of masti? This song from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a complete entertainment package with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, yet again, dancing in full zest and zeal with colors of Holi floating around! This another Pritam composition sung by Vishal Dadlani and Shalmali Kholgade while Remo D'Souza takes the choreography again. Be careful guys or else the Balam Pichkari can come all the way and hit you crazy!

"Dilliwali Girlfriend"

Is this list composed of songs from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, we hear you thinking? We can't help it when this beautiful dance sequence celebrating a sangeet function rocks up on our screens. Ranbir looks charming as ever while Deepika is superbly busy with her sexy looks. The entire sequence is peppy and a visual treat. Pritam scores a hat-trick so far with singers Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan lending their voices and Ganesh Acharya providing some of his best moves for the song.

"Nagada Sang Dol"
Is it possible to take your eyes off Deepika Padukone when this song from Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela is playing? If you ask us, we defiantly say no! Right from the start till the end, Deepika captures our mind with her effortless dancing and graceful looks. The song gives us the complete flavor of a Gujarati backdrop right from the attires to the traditional dance steps with drums and other instruments in background. The film's director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, takes ownership for composition while Shreya Ghoshal lends her blessed voice. Full marks to choreographer Ganesh Acharya once more for this wonderful piece of work!

"Lungi Dance"
This item number sung and composed by Yo Yo Honey Singh from Chennai Express did make the nation go wild with its energetic dance moves and South Indian flavor in its choreography. A song dedicated to south Indian superstar Rajnikanth, the song included a few of the actor's frequently used dance moves and veteran choreographer Chinni Prakash has picked and used them accordingly.

"Party all Night"
Yet another Yo Yo Honey Singh dance number with his ever famous rapping and tapping, this song features Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha from the movie Boss. The film might have not impressed the audience as expected but this song, both composed and sung by Honey Singh, did leave an impression with some brilliant choreography by Mudassar Khan. Let's party all night and dance till we die? Why not!

"Gandi Baat"
Talk of best choreographies and miss out songs by Prabhudeva? Impossible! This loud yet bouncy composition of Pritam is sung by Mikka Singh and Kalpana Patowary and features yet another talented dancing actor, Shahid Kappor with Sonakshi Sinha. The film R...Rajkumar does consist of more up-beat songs such as this one but this just slightly beats them all. Forget the lyrics and its meaning and get loud and noisy for a change with this song!

"Sadda Dil Vi Tu"
Ahh! Now this song from the exclusive dance film, ABCD: Any Body Can Dance features many a contestants of Zee TV's Dance India Dance reality show. Directed by choreographer Remo D'Souza, there is no question as to why the songs in the film contain some astounding dance sequences. Be it due to the choreography by Remo D'Souza or its theme of a song on Lord Ganesha, out of all, we say this song is different and stands out as the best. Sung by Hard Kaur and Sachin-Jigar providing the music, this is one must watch song if you are true devotees of dance.

"Aare Aare"
This up-beat dance song belongs to the Ranbir Kapoor and Pallavi Sharda starrer Besharam! The film hugely disappointed the fans of Ranbir but the phenomenal dancer in him didn't disappoint us with this number. Working with Remo D'Souza yet again, the duo brought us a beautifully crafted Punjabi flavored song full of masti and masala. The Lalit Pandit composed song sung by Mikka Singh and Shreya Ghoshal did wonders to the otherwise dread flick.

This brilliant dance sequence from the much awaited Dhoom: 3 has Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif performing some incredible steps choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant. While Pritam takes credit as composer, it is sung by Sidharth Mahadevan and Shilpa Rao. Check the video of the song out for yourself and you will see why there's no doubt of it's participation in this list amongst million other songs released this year. Bring your energies on and let's go dhoom all over again!

Phew! With such as peppy list, we can't help but try out some the moves ourselves. So while we load the videos and pull out our dance mats, why not tell us of your reactions to these songs and which are your favorite choreographies? Till then shake a leg and Happy New Year!
