Spread the colour – Holi

Holi has always been that one function we all keep waiting throughout the year, don’t we? The fun throwing colours on our friends, the fun sharing sweets with our friends, making a trip to our relative’s house. Holi has always been synonymous with colours and fun.

Listen to Holi Specials Songs on Raaga.com

One song that is evergreen in our minds when we talk of Holi is ofcourse ‘Holi ke din’ from the movie Sholay.Even if it has been so many years since its release, it has never failed to bring back the spirits of Holi.Talking about Sholay, who is the personality who comes to our mind? Well, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan ofcourse, and obviously talking about him brings us to another Holi song of his called Rang barse from the movie Silsila. Although the movie Silsila was known for its wonderful romantic scenes, even those shot at the Kukenhof gardens in the Netherlands, this song did make an impact amongst all the audience.No we are not done with Amitabh Bachachan yet; it would look incomplete if we do not add the song ‘hari Khele Raghuveera’ to this list from the movie Baghban.

Another catchy Holi song is from the movie Mangal Pandey, acted by ace actor Aamir khan ; the song ‘Dekho aayi holi’ – an extremely pompous and ‘raising the spirits’ kind of song. Mohe Chedo Na. from the movie Lamhe is also a nice listen for a fun-filled holi.  This song from the movie Mumbai Se Aaya Mera dost had this lovely song ‘Koi bheega hai rang se’ which was a nice, peppy number.The recent release ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani’ would ofcourse appeal a lot to us this year considering the catchy tune the song ‘ Balam pichakari jo tune mujhe maari’ has.

Raaga.com wishes one and all a happy holi and may the spirits of holi bring in more luck.
