It’s time to clean everything, go shopping, and eat until you explode. As I mentioned last year, I don’t know that much about Diwali. I do know there aren’t enough Diwali carols, or really any.
Thanks to East India Comedy, we have some suggestions.
If those didn’t give you enough of a creative starting point for some Diwali carols, I’ve managed to find some Bollywood hits (being real generous with that word) about the holiday spirit.
“Shehar Ki Pariyon” – Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992)
For those of you who love bright vests on Aamir Khan.
“Aai Ab K Saal Diwali” – Haqeeqat (1964)
For grandma, who just wants to listen to some nice old songs from her youth.
“Kaise Diwali Manaye Lala” – Paigham (1959)
For grandma, who just wants to listen to some nice old songs from her youth and laugh a lot.
“Aayee Hai Diwali” – Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya (2001)
For people who were fans of Govinda, for whatever reason.
“Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham” – Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001)
For people who love big blockbusters and dramatic Shah Rukh Khan entrances.
“Pairon Mein Bandhan Hai” – Mohabbatein (2000)
For everyone who has 10 minutes to spare (for this very long movie clip) and really likes dramatic Shah Rukh Khan entrances.
“Happy Diwali” – Home Delivery (2005)
For bloggers who have never heard of this movie, but are thankful for very obvious titles that appear in quick Google searches.
Happy Diwali everyone!
