Happy Navratri! I debated about whether to do this post at the start or the end. I went with start, just because Judwaa 2 comes out near the end so I will already have plenty of content then. Plus Dussehra, Karwa Chauth, etc. etc. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
First, my favorite Navratri song, and a movie in which it is actually a plot point (Hrithik’s college band is hired to perform at Amisha’s family party, thus allowing them to spend time together and fall in love over 9 nights).
And then the super popular recent Navratri film, Kahaani, which doesn’t really have any devotional songs per se, but the whole plot and concept revolves around worshipping the female power.
Now, I have some real issues with this movie, but this song really is amazing!!!
Bhansali really likes this holiday, he dipped back in the well for Ram-Leela.
And again! Boy, I usually ignore Bhansali, but apparently Navratri is his day.
Let’s refresh from Bhansali and get some classics up in here! Amitji in Suhaag (a very fun film which is available on Hoopla, if your library has that)
Look! Rahman did a Navratri/Dandiya song! With Sonali Bendre? Why have I never heard of this movie?
And obviously, I have to end with SRK. This is as close as he gets to a straight up Dandiya/Garba/Navratri song.
And that’s 9! Let me know everything I forgot in the comments.
