Holi is the festival of
colors, joy, and happiness. Bright colors, laughter, and some fun and games are
what define this festive holiday. As the stains of the colors stay on crisp
white clothes, there are such Holi scenes shown on the big screen that stay
with us, leaving an impact whether it be touching or whether it be or whether
it be heart-wrenching.
the most touching Holi scenes is in one of the most romantic Bollywood movies.
In the epic love story of Mohabbatein
lovers could never become one, but neither could they be separated,
most heart touching scene of Holi. Raj (Shah Rukh Khan
) is standing on
excited over getting permission to play Holi with the students. As he
stands there, the love of his life Megha (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
up behind him, and congratulates
him on his achievement by wishing him a happy holi and applying red
his cheek thus starting holi with the color of love. The scene dies with
laughter being heard in the background. It's a heart touching scene that
a huge impact on us, that even when two lovers are miles away and can
reunited, still, on the occasion of Holi, two hearts meet in a unique
A heartwarming scene that melts your heart.
This movie is about relations, whether it be
blood-relation or a relation of hearts. This particular Holi scene
depicts all of what Holi really
is: colors, happiness, joy and, most importantly, family. The scene
shows us a
real image of Holi celebration, where Raj (Amitabh Bachchan
) and Pooja's
) grown children are present
with their wives and kids. There is happiness on their faces and they
are united as a family. It's a scene that
lightens up your day, and makes you realize what family really is. And
you want to play Holi yourself.
Holi is not just a festival of colors, it's also a celebration
of friendship, joy and togetherness. And this is beautifully shown in
this specific scene. Two sworn enemies reunite as friends in the rain of
colors in this very colorful scene, which makes it even more special.
After all the true color of Holi is friendship.
Holi - the perfect opportunity for a love
confession or a suicide threat? The Holi scene in the movie Deewaana
is a rare balance of a dark and
lighthearted Holi celebration. Holi is associated with lighthearted pranks, and
flirtatious romance. The given scene is where Raja (Shah Rukh Khan
) uses the
occasion of Holi to propose to a widow, just to take revenge from her. A
passionate proposal, but a well thought one. An intriguing scene combined with
the colors of the rainbow...a well shot scene with a dark shadow.
Holi is usually a joyous festival with a
play of bright and light colors. But there's more to Holi than this; a darker
shade of Holi. In the film Damini
when Holi takes place, and everyone's busy playing with colors, a
cruel thing is happening with Damini
's (Meenakshi Seshadri) maid who is
being raped by her brother in law. And Damini
, the main protagonist, is
witnessing it all. It's a tragic scene where
amidst the crowd and noise of the Holi event an innocent girl becomes a
and her screams are unheard. This scene is one of the most disturbing
projections of Holi onscreen.
Gulaal symbolism for Holi is used in a very different way. Just as one is
beginning to root for the manipulative but commanding Ransa (Abhimanyu Singh),
Karan (Aditya Srivastava) shocks everyone with his evil play. Ransa is found dead and his dead
body is hanging from a tree. The dead body is dripping with Holi colors and
it's hard to make out the blood from the red color. Holi is given a dark violent
shade, and it's used as a symbol of all the suffering that's happened in the
Indian student politics.
On Holi everyone is carefree and enjoying without any fear in their mind. The
same is the case with Kiran (Juhi Chawla
) and Sunil (Sunny Deol
) who are
enjoying a wet and wild Holi of their own; unaware that someone is watching
them closely. Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan
), the obsessive lover, has colored himself
black and is stalking Kiran. He gate crashes their Holi celebration by joining
a musical group. But seeing his love romance another guy, Rahul can't take it
and he reveals his true self. This ends with a violent chase that ends with
Rahul managing to escape Sunil and blending into the crowd. It's a different
type of Holi scene that gives you the creeps as well as keeping you hooked.
contains one of the most memorable Holi scenes ever seen in Hindi
cinema. While Jai (Amitabh Bachchan
) and Veeru (Dharmendra
) are happily celebrating Holi with each other, Gabbar
(Amjad Khan) makes an unexpected attack. Holi instead of being a fun filled
colorful day turns into a nightmare within seconds, and instead of colors they play
with blood. And of course who can forget the ever so famous dialogue; "Holi kab
hain?" asked by the greatest villains of all time. It's the only Holi scene
that is remembered for its streak of violence.
All the colors of Holi are the colors of
love. And this is highlighted in the evergreen movie Silsila
, where love is in the air. The scene
takes place before one of the most popular Holi songs in history "Rang
Barse". The scene is a conversation between Shobha (Jaya Bachchan
) and Chandni (Rekha),
where Jaya tells Rekha that the red color of gulaal on her cheek suits her a
lot, and she replies by saying that the gulaal reminds her of her first love,
the conversation goes on and it comes out that Chandni didn't marry the person
she loved. At the same time the same conversation is going on between Amit
) and Dr. V. K. Anand (Sanjeev Kumar). And as the conversation ends
the lovebirds glance at each other. The scene signifies that true love can
never be hidden, despite so many barriers and the distance time has created
between them. Their hearts still beat for each other. And, on the auspicious day
of Holi, their hearts are colored in the color of love as well, which also gives a lingering intuition of infidelity to come.
The celebration of Holi is not just a celebration of colors. It is
a celebration of love, friendship, romance, new beginnings, and so much
more. Some of the scenes we choose may make you blush, while others
make you shiver. However, no matter what the feeling, in the end, Holi
signifies whatever you want it to signify. Wishing everyone a very happy
and colorful Holi, BollyCurry now signs off.

Yet again a scene from Mohabbatein, from the
song "Soni Soni". In the movie, Kiran (Preeti Jhangiani
) is a widowed
girl who has abandoned everything in her life and lives a life set by
her father-in-law, Major General Khanna (Amrish Puri). Her life is dull
and colorless. The Holi song, however, brings a change in her life as
gets colors on her clothes and in her life in the form of Karan (Jimmy
Shergill), her well-wisher and the boy who loves her. It's a
beautiful scene where the symbolism of Holi is used in a very unique way
that shows a new beginning.
