2. Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo
This title track carries on for about 15 minutes. With numerous actors participating in the filming, this remains the longest Bollywood song ever shot.
3. Main Kahin Bhi Rahoon
While the first track on our list is for the soldiers, this one talks about what a soldier goes through during his time serving his nation. Composed by Anu Malik and sung by numerous artists like Sonu Nigam and Udit Narayan, it’s beautiful to listen to even being 12:53 minutes long.

Moving on from the soul stirring patriotic tracks of Bollywood, we also have certain fun numbers if you are looking to lighten the mood. This song from the movie Hum Saath Saath Hain is a peppy track from the beginning till the end despite being 11:36 minutes long.
6. Didi Tera Devar Deewana
We’re sure that you must have heard this one. After all, it’s one of the biggest blockbuster hit songs of all time. The iconic dance of Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit makes it so much fun that we barely notice that the song is actually 7:38 minutes long.
7. Chaiyya Chaiyya
We agree that this is the shortest among all the tracks in this list, clocking at 6:27 minutes. But, it’s still longer than the usual Bollywood songs. Besides, we couldn’t help but mention the iconic collaboration of A.R. Rahman and Sukhwinder Singh.
