Can you point me in the directions of some songs that really show off the vocal pyrotechnics of Bollywood playback singers?

The words can be dumb, the dramatic import non-existent, whatever, songs that will give me shivers from sheer vocal goodness like, say, Jaiye aap kahan jayenge
or even Sajna se milne jaina
I know who the great singers are, it's the repertoire I'm asking about. There are thousands and thousands of songs -- which are considered the bel canto of Bollywood? I'm also open to classical Indian music or other-language Indian movie music (both of which I know nothing but nothing about) if you think it could dazzle and astound me.
