Holi has a remarkable place in Indian festivals – and when it comes to Bollywood, the celebration of colors is as revered on screen as it is all over the Country. We take a look at some top Holi songs that have been trending every year plus the new entrants with the DJ s and the music lovers while splashing the colors on their loved ones.
This scintillating track from recently released movie, Jawaani Deewani, has become an instant hit with the masses. The popular Deepika – Ranbir combo struck hearts like magic. The sexy Deepika dancing with those hottie shorts in the song cant be missed. Truly a festive number!
Holi Khele Raghuveera
This song from Baghban filmed on Amitabh and Hema Malini is an endearing number that talks about relationships, love and the colors of life. The duo of the 70’s who created magic with their on screen chemistry was back to lilt up the marquee once more.
The festive song from SRK’s Mohabbatein is ideal to stir up many emotions at once. The film which was all about love and giving against hatred had a Holi song that was long forgotten. But not yet. Add it to the list!!
Ang Se Ang Lagaana
The Juhi Chawla oomph plus cuteness coupled with SRK’s sadism in Yash Chopra’s Darr had a Holi song which was peppy and thematic. Juhi dancing in a symbolic white dress had become a trend setter of sorts.
Dekho Aayi Holi
This song from Mangal Pandey may not be a chart buster, nor was it as popular as Aamir Khan’s Moustache in the movie, but it sure adds up to the list of the popular Holi songs of Bollywood.
Mohe Chedo Na
The Sridevi era saw this musical song from the romantic film, Lamhe. The Anil Kapoor seriousness and Sridevi’s bubbly demeanor..all add up to the renedering!!
Jai Jai ShivShankar
The lover boy of the 70s Rajesh Khanna and the then reigning queen Mumtaz danced to this groovy tune, all in ‘high spirits’. Little did they know that this extremely popular song from the film Aap Ki Kasam will go on to become a trendsetter!!
One of the most enjoyed songs in the history of Indian Cinema, Rang Barse from the film Silsila is an evergreen favorite. Big B s magnetic voice coupled with some catchy phrases works wonders, especially if you are under the effect of that ‘Bhaangg’ to go with. Always played everywhere during the festivities, Rang Barse is a must in the list.
Holi Ke Din
Perhaps one of the best songs from the iconic film Sholay, Holi ke Din is a festive classic. The song is all about how the festival of colors lights up lives, removes the differences and unites everyone. The song will never be replaceable ever with anything better.
So, get that music going, dance to the tunes while you play with colors and drink that dopey ‘Bhaangg’ with your loved ones..
