The Ultimate Bollywood Holi Playlist
Holi Hai! It's that time of the year again. Beautiful colours all around, scrumptious sweets to gorge on, and some quality time with your loved ones. If you ignore the annoying revelry and focus on the cultural aspect of Holi, you will realise that this festival is truly beautiful. Also, it goes way beyond the usual elements - water, bhaang, colours - that the festival has gained popularity for. It marks the arrival of spring, signifies the victory of good over evil and is celebrated as a thanksgiving by the farmers for good harvest. The festival is spread over two days - while the first day is celebrated as Holika Dahan, the second is known as Dhulvandhan. In some parts of the country, celebrations continue all the way up to Rang Panchami (fifth day of the second fortnight in the month of Phalguna).
Well, if you are among those who prefers celebrating the festival with loved ones, without the usual revelry, with just a simple puja, good food and some fun time with music or karaoke (Nope! Not the one with tower speakers), then we've got the perfect filmy addition for you. Over the years, Holi has played an important role in most popular Bollywood films. It is one of Bolly land's most favourite on-screen festival (Ganesh Chaturthi and Navratri comes a close second). Some of our favourite characters have displayed various emotions, including love, fun, sorrow, drama and even revenge with Holi as the backdrop (and an entertaining track to go with it). This Holi, we've got the ultimate Bollywood dance / karaoke playlist for you. Read on to know if your favourite is on the list!
