Classic Holi Scenes, Bollywood’s Favourite Festival

March 3, 2014 | By

Learning And Creativity brings you a selection of some great Holi scenes woven around this colourful festival.

Hindi filmmakers love Holi. And why wouldn’t they? Which other festival offers you so much freedom to experiment with colour photography, explore high voltage vibrancy in every shot and mix in humor, romance, music and dance in a heady cocktail?

The festival of Holi has been creatively used by filmmakers in several ways to move the storyline ahead:

If the story has hit a serious or slow spot, pep it up with a Holi song.

If the story has tensions building up between the lead characters, use the Holi spirit to give it an added boost.

If the boy and the girl have not been able to voice their love yet, make Holi an excuse for a spirited chhed-chhad between the two and finally the occasion to put the feelings in words, or izhaar-e-mohabbat.

Want some comic relief to release the tension build up in the story? Use the tradition of consuming bhaang on Holi to create some rib-tickling scenes.

Learning And Creativity brings you a selection of some great Holi scenes woven around this colourful festival.

Namak Haram

The merry crowd of Holi revelers in the basti smear the spick and span Chander (Rajesh Khanna) with gulal. In mock annoyance, Chander dusts off the gulal. But when Shyama (Rekha) fires the pichkari at him, Chander chases her with a bucket of colour, sending her screaming and scurrying to her brother Dhondu (Asrani) for help.

Anil Kapoor in his tapori style tries his best to position the Dongarbatti Holi as the city’s best Holi celebrations, all in a bid to persuade the sophisticated journalist Rati Agnihotri to spend Holi with him in his rundown basti!


Shah Rukh Khan turns on his charm to convince the somber and draconian principal Amitabh Bachchan to be part of the first Holi celebrations of the Gurukul School.


We all know one of the most famous Holi songs of all times – Rang barse bheege chunarwali, sung by Amitabh Bachchan in his deep baritone. But the shots that precede the song are just as pulsating as Chandni (Rekha) admits to Shobha (Jaya Bachchan) and Amit (Amitabh) confesses to Sanjeev Kumar that they are not married to the one they fell in love with.

If you didn’t know what bhaang can do to you on Holi, watch Chander (Rajesh Khanna) and Dhondu (Asrani) go through hilarious hallucinations in their inebriated state.
