Long weekend and color festival! It is the time of year when people across the country will celebrate the Hindi festival, Holi. While some people like to play with colors, water balloons and pickaxes, others will watch movies and immerse themselves in the rhythms of some amazing Bollywood numbers. It is a perfect time to have fun with friends and spend quality time with family. However, this year as well, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems that the festival has been narrowly said. But whether it’s happy or sad, friendship or a fight, Bollywood always has everything to entertain you. Over the years, many Bollywood films have used the Holi festival for great plot development.
Here are some movies you can watch with your loved ones on Holly:
