Slightly on the offensive side, this number from Delhi Belly is a perfect song when you feel red hot angry on your ex and pretty much mentally abuse her now and then.

And after a few rounds, you will be tired, the truth of the situation will dawn on you and you will be relieved to realise how the breakup from the chudail was a good thing. This is one of the all-time greatest Bollywood breakup songs.

From a great movie, Dev D, which was a simple twist of the classic movie Devdas, this song celebrates the emotional drain in a relationship.

One of the best heartbreak Hindi songs that you could listen to.

7. Move on

This track is from the movie Tanu Weds Manu Returns, and the title sums up the whole life advice after a breakup.

The truth about ripping the past emotional ties to move forward in the future is what this is all about.

A great motivational song for a post-breakup mood. And of course not a sad Bollywood song.

8. Zehnaseeb

This song from Hasee Toh Phasee is a must-listen. Because even though the relationship did not last, you had memories that you can never forget. This song is about letting go of the bitterness and remembering the good memories and possibly, even the ex. Another great Bollywood breakup song.

My personal top picks from these 10 are Chor Bazaari, Channa Mereya and Hungama Ho Gaya. Its a fab list and is inclusive of all the sorts of moods that one can get into post a break up. “Let’s break up” from Dear Zindagi too can hold a good rank in this list I feel.
