7 Films That Give The Vibe of Holi

Team FC

Phool aur Patthar (1966)

One of the earliest depictions of Holi in colour in Hindi cinema, this song featured in the OP Ralhan film starring Meena Kumari and Dharmendra.

Kati Patang (1970)

Among the many songs of this film, Rajesh Khanna is said to have lip-synced this so well it appeared he was performing it himself, and it has long become an iconic moment in one of Khanna's most well-known films.

Sholay (1975)

Holi becomes a flashpoint in the narrative of Sholay, and the revelry dies down just as suddenly as it starts, and the film resumes its sombre tone.

Silsila (1981)

The iconic Yash Chopra film used Holi as a means of bringing parties in the film together, making the conflict even more engrossing.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013)

"Balam Pichkari" serves as a minor transformation for Deepika Padukone's character in the film, and also suggests a slight mellowing in Ranbir Kapoor's Bunny, while being immensely enjoyable and terrifically-filmed.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017)

The song exists almost independent of the film, and essentially ties into the release date as opposed to being a part of the narrative, but it is undeniably fun all the same.

War (2019)

The celebratory Holi number serves as a thawing of vibes between the characters of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, and also is a treat for dance aficionados.
