Your Holi Celebration
Holi Ke Din – Sholay
Hema Malini and Dharmendra grooving to Holi Ke Din? Yes, please! Get ready to forget your gile shikwe and embrace your friends and enemies alike with this iconic movie from the days gone by. The energy of people running around the village while painting the skies pink and green is sure to seep deep within you and set the mood for this festival of colors.
Also, don’t miss the jolly little dance of the angry young man – Amitabh Bachchan. While he has to go fight the bad guys later, you can leave your day free to dance in peace all day.
Hori Khele Raghuveera – Baghban
Here’s an idea – let us all wear white, a blank canvas just waiting to be painted in a multitude of colors. Holi Khele Raghuveera and the entire neighborhood join in with their own set of gulals. Now that is the spirit we are looking for this Holi! Or maybe slightly toned down as, unlike Raghuveer, we have entered the times of Covid.
That won’t stop us from performing a mini version of this classic piece with our family. If your family is having a hard time wearing white on the ‘festival of colors, just play this song for them. JUST THE SONG, Which they probably have already seen a million times but just for a reminder. That’s it. You can sit and relax. Raghuveer is on his way to set the mood right.
Lahu Muh Lag Gaya – Ram Leela
Deepika Padukone wins hearts with her seductive performance in this energetic yet soulful song. It takes a great deal of confidence to paint yourself with gulal in Padukone’s alluring way.
We look at you with rose-colored glasses as you try some of these scenes with your better halves this Holi, or if you have not found your halves yet, let’s just enjoy the breathtaking beauty of this movie. *sigh*
Balam Pichkari – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Yes, we all loved the nerdy Naina, but wait a minute! Just let her snuggle out of that introverted, reserved phase and ask kon chashmish while swinging around that hose sprinkling water. Just the kind of Holi we have all been missing these years.
The running around, the colors, and the season when the hose water temperature is finally bearable! Seedhi saadhi chhori who? Just put Balam Pichkari on speaker, and you might find yourself asking itna maza kyun aarha hai?
Soni Soni – Mohabbatein
Name one thing better than King Khan dancing to Soni Soni akhiyon wali? With this song, you will doubtlessly fall in love with SRK all over again while the violins play in the background. The drums, the melody, and the dancing will entangle you in its rhythm and push you out of your tough exterior to enjoy this season of colors, brotherhood, love, and enjoyment.
If Raj (SRK) can make the principal go soft on his paramparas, so can you with that serious uncle who hates dancing and everyone who does. Serve him the famous bhaang and watch joy unfold.
Holi – Padmaavat
Need any ideas for color coordination this Holi season? Padmaavat is the movie, and Richa Sharma’s folk melody is the song. The royal charisma of Deepika Padukone will leave you mesmerized beyond words and will make you want to go back to the days when they still did architecture like that.
If you wish to celebrate this Holi like royalty, take your inspiration from this movie. The softness of the song and the intense chemistry of the protagonists are enough to spark up the ambiance of this season.
Go Pagal – Jolly LLB 2
If Akshay tells you to go pagal because it’s Holi, that is what you do. The energy and liveliness of Go Pagal will get to you and make you groove along (with or without buckets on your head)
A Holi celebration without this song in the playlist is unimaginable Gather around your friends and family and just unleash the frenzy!
Badri Ki Dulhaniya – Badri Ki Dulhaniya
This song amalgamates the aura of Holi and the grace of the wedding season perfectly. If you are looking for dress inspirations that you can dance in as well as pass as a bride, look no further than Alia Bhatt! Her engaging dance moves are a sure-shot hit for the festival of colors.
Further, the uplifting and charismatic music is sure to ornate your playlist for the Holi season. We know your mother asked you to take out the oldest clothes from the corners of your almirah, but do give that lehenga a try this time.
