With gorgeous lights and lavish parties, Bollywood has given us a number of memorable Diwali scenes and songs

 On the occasion of Diwali, SpotboyE brings to you, the scenes and the songs from Bollywood films which will (hopefully) brighten up your festival.

Pairon Mein Bandhan Hai

Pairon Mein Bandhan Hai from Mohabbatein (2000), is not only set against the backdrop of Diwali, but also comes a very crucial stage in the film. All six leads of the film namely Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty, Jugal Hansraj, Kim Sharma, Jimmy Shiergill and Preeti Jhangiani, who till now in the film were petrified of acknowledging their love in front of Amitabh Bachchan’s character, finally do so. Don’t miss out King Khan playing the dhol towards the end of the number. 

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham

Lavish sets, beautifully clad women dancing with diyas, and a picture perfect family – the title track of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham offers a glimpse of the how the Raichand’s celebrate Diwali. The final scene of the song where Jaya Bachchan senses that Shah Rukh Khan is here even before he steps into the house is a memorable one.  

Ae Zindigi Gale Lagale

The soulful number crooned by Suresh Wadkar from Sadma (1983) features Sridevi and Kamal Hassan. The two celebrate Diwali by lighting up the house and letting off the fire crackers.

We all remember Ishaan from the film, don’t we? The character, essayed by Darsheel Safary, is all set to go to hostel post Diwali. It is one of the most heartbreaking scenes in the film (even though the film is full of them) and Darsheel’s sorrow is perfectly juxtaposed with the cheerful Diwali atmosphere. 

Sheher Ki Pariyon Ke Piche

The song from Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander (1992) is all about desi costumes, crackers and shows Aamir Khan’s brother Mamik Singh confessing his feelings to his childhood crush. The film features Aamir Khan, Ayesha Jhulka, Mamik Singh, Deepak Tijori and Kulbhushan Kharbanda in the lead roles.

The scene where Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor come together for a Diwali party in Aisha (2010) is what family time during Diwali is made of. Bright lights and interiors, pretty electric lights and sweets and savouries are the highlight of the scene.

Home Delivery: Aapko Ghar Tak

The track Mere Tumhare Sabke Liye Happy Diwali showcases kids dancing in the song and wishing everyone Happy Diwali. How can that not bring a smile to your face? Home Delivery: Aapko... Ghar Tak (2005) features Vivek Oberoi, Ayesha Takia, Mahima Chaudhary, and Boman Irani in lead roles. The film also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh in cameos.
