New Delhi: The festival of colours – Holi is here and how! Water canons filled, colours picked, snacks sorted, a white outfit selected – the Holi fever is setting in. This year, Holi is being celebrated no March 18 and Holika Dahan or Chhoti Holi will be marked on March 17, today.
Setting the mood right for this festive Holi weekend, Disney+ Hotstar’s exciting library of content offers a plethora of titles to match your every mood. Check your binge-watch options this weekend here:
Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Sanon starrer Hum Do Hamare Do does just that with its hilarious plot of a couple seeking fake parents to get married. Along with them, the entertaining lives of runaway bride Mansi and runway groom Veer in Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele will also let you begin your day with melodic and soulful music.
The intensity of hunger hits differently after the fatigue of Holi takes over your body. While you may be able to eat a whole whale, delicacies are never too far away during this time. As you wait for the food to be served, cooked or delivered, shows like Foodtastic and Masterchef India can help sustain your hunger with gusto.
As you unwind for the day with family over drinks, food and laughter, let the comically chaotic lives of the Thakurs in Dil Bekaraar entertain your evening. The breezing presence of Padmini Kolhapure, Raj Babbar and Poonam Dhillon in the Hotstar Specials will heartwarmingly take you back to the 80’s, and you might even get to see parents and relatives live the nostalgia.
When Holi plays to our heartstrings, romance can never be away; such is the magic of Holi. Naturally, as you finally crawl into bed after a day well spent, you can get cosy with a romantic film like Atrangi Re. Aside from the budding romance between first time on-screen pair Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan, A.R. Rahman’s soothing soundtracks can be the ultimate harbinger of sleep to end Holi on a pitch-perfect note.
Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy Holi 2022!
