Bollywood has always been fascinated about Holi. There is no doubt that every Holi party is incomplete without the Bollywood touch to it. We all have wanted to look like Rekhaji in Silsila’s ‘Rang Barse’ and we know how the speakers burst with ‘Balam Pichkari’ since 8:30 am.
In 1970, we saw ‘Kati Patang’ where Asha Parekh and Rajesh Khanna were grooving to ‘Aaj Na Chodengey’. We saw a teary-eyed dressed in a white saree Asha Parekh being cheered up by Rajesh Khanna.
In 1975, we received Holi goals with ‘Rang Barse’ with Rekhaji‘s inimitable charm and thumkas. Of course her looks, the white salwar kameez, and the epitome of grace that woman is. The husky vocals by Amitabh Bachchan and the way he has moved in the song make it what it is. There is not one person who hasn’t grooved to this on Holi.
The way Holi has been portrayed in Bollywood movies is quite pretty to look at with other songs like ‘Ang se ang lagana’. The Holi music has always been on point. The evolution as we say has taken place recently.
In 2005, we saw Priyanka Chopra doing Akshay Kumar a favor by playing Holi! The whole nation did a favor! The song is still played a decade later and we have no intentions to get tired of it anytime soon.
In 2013, we saw Ranveer Singh play Holi with Deepika Padukone. ‘Soya tha nass nass mein ab yeh jag gaya’. The song from ‘Goliyon Ki Raas Leela- Ram Leela‘ was a sensuous one and the cast left us mesmerized with their moves.
In 2013, we saw a seedhi saadhi Deepika Padukone go sharabi and we loved it! Balam Pichkari saw our Bollywood heroine in a red kurta and shorts rather than the traditional white saree or salwar kameez.
