The hymn Vande Mataram, composed by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay and regarded as India's national anthem, has seen numerous remakes over the years.

4. Swades - Yeh Jo Desh Hai Tera

There are many popular patriotic songs by A.R. Rahman, but "Yeh Jo Desh Hai Tera" from the movie "Swades" stands out. Its slower tempo and emotive lyrics, in contrast to many other patriotic songs, depict the emotional journey of a young scientist who is living overseas and debating whether to return to his country. A.R. Rahman wrote the music and sang the song.

5. Chak De! India

Sukhwinder Singh, Salim-Sulaiman, and Marianne D'Cruz's title song from the Shah Rukh Khan movie Chak De! India inspires feelings of patriotism and pride in one's country. The song is a popular choice for Republic Day celebrations because of its dynamism and power.

An accomplished group of singers, including Shankar Mahadevan, Sonu Nigam, Roop Kumar Rathod, Vijay Prakash, Hariharan, and Kunal Ganjawala, perform the song. It sends a message of cooperation, harmony, and diversity. A popular song from the patriotic song collection, the song's video is a captivating performance, especially on Republic Day.

7. India waale - Happy New Year

Following the 2014 release of the Shah Rukh Khan-starring movie Happy New Year, the song "Indiawale" gained popularity among the nation's jubilant and patriotic residents.

The song "Indiawale," performed by KK, Neeti Mohan, Shankar Mahadevan, and Vishal Dadlani, is perfect for Republic Day celebrations.

8. Fanna - Des Rangila

A lovely ode to India can be found in the song "Des Rangila" from the 2006 movie "Fanna," which stars Aamir Khan and Kajol. The melody and rhythm of the song, which is performed by Mahalakshmi Iyer, are ideal for Republic Day celebrations. The song is a perfect choice for dance performances in schools and universities on Republic Day because it depicts a young, blind Kashmiri girl named Kajol doing a powerful dance performance.

9. Mary Kom - Salaam India

A wonderful approach to honour the country on Republic Day is to listen to the stirring performance of the song "Salaam India" from the Priyanka Chopra-starring movie "Mary Kom." Vishal Dadlani and Salim Merchant provide vocals for the song, which was penned by Sandeep Singh and composed by Shivam. The movie tells the narrative of Indian Olympian Mary Kom, who gave her nation great pride. This Republic Day, "Salaam India" is sure to inspire feelings of patriotism.

10. Dus - Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walo

Starring Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan Although Dus was never released, its song Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walo became a hit on the charts. No song can depict Indians looking out over adversaries at the bay like this one does. Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walo, sung by Udit Narayan, Mahalakshmi Iyer, Shankar Mahadevan, and Dominique Cerejo, is the upbeat track for a vibrant dance performance on Republic Day.
