Barso Re (Hindi:बरसो रे, Urdu: برسو رے) "Oh, Please Rain!" is a song from the 2007 Bollywood drama "Guru".

The song is a joyful celebration of rain, typically seen a positive and welcome event in South Asian culture.

The lyrics were written by Gulzar and the music was composed by A.R. Rahman (who also composed the whole film's soundtrack).

The video clip shows scenes of the movie where the Sujata, the female protagonist ( Aishwarya Rai) celebrates the coming of rain, against a green, luxuriantly humid Kerala landscape (although Sujata is supposed to be from rural Gujarat), and she performs many of the actions described un the song: swimming, riding an ox cart, swinging from a mango tree, etc., while she is deciding to elope with her boyfriend.

The playback singer is Shreya Ghoshal.
