The forever romantic and much-awaited festival for married couple is here! The immense love and determination involved in the festival of Karwa Chauth lies next to prodigious will and sheer thrill for the wed couple when a day-long fast is observed by married women to bring good luck and long life for their husbands.
While newly-wed women dress themselves up in their best
outfits, long scrutiny of rituals and spiritual inclination goes towards this
one-day celebration. The day is celebrated four days after Purnima (full-moon
night) in Kartika month when women fast for the whole day avoiding even a drop
of water until they get a glimpse of the moon.
However, the festival is not as affable as it looks, since many faint and drool back to breaking the ritual! What is utter interesting is that Bollywood movies have left no stones unturned in painting a virtual picture of this festival. Bollywood has not just glorified the importance of this festival, but many of the movies have left the true essence of Karwa Chauth into our hearts.
Somehow these movies have successfully shown us that absolute happiness and relationships prioritise in our lives while pure bonding and love pave their path simultaneously if one has ultimate care and will to celebrate festivals.
Here goes the list of 5 Bollywood movies that gave us the taste of Karwa Chauth Moments:-
1. Dilwale Dhulania Le Jayenge (DDLJ)
The iconic romance of Raj and Simran is indeed the epitome of all the love in this world which sums up why it is everybody’s
favourite! The movie not just revolves around the cute romantic couple fighting
with the odds to unite together but one of the scenes again glides over our
hearts melting us when Raj breaks Simran’s fast on Karwa Chauth which she was
supposed to observe for her to-be husband.
2. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
Steaming instances arise in this love-story where the
couple try to hide their relationship from the family. However, this movie
solely contributes towards having a beautiful song ‘Chaand Chupa Badal Mein’
dedicated to the moon on the occasion of Karwa Chauth. The whole scene on the
terrace is so filmy and beautiful which makes us believe that Bollywood never
fails to surprise us with high drama and emotions.
This movie is not like how you picture every Bollywood love-story to be all romantic and couple centred. Instead, this movie revolves around two parents and their austerity that they end up living separately due to their children and observe fast for each other on the occasion of Karwa Chauth. This movie will surely roll down tears of emotions and teach you some austere lessons, while the fasting scene will move you by melting your heart!
4. Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum
K3G as many call it fits perfectly in the Karwa Chauth scene and strikes us with it's evergreen ‘Bole Chudiyan’ song as soon as someone talks about the festival. This movie is a bunch of rejoicing, emotions and drama that shows how important relations mean for families in India no matter which part of the world they live in.
