From Vaastav to Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Bollywood Movies with Diwali’s Most Emblematic Scenes

by Stewart Cole

We have inherited from Bollywood the meaning of bond, festivals and everything in between. Exaggeration and Bollywood are inextricably linked. With this, the big celebrations of Indian holidays are a must! It has taught us to make every relationship as outrageous and as ostentatious as a Bollywood movie, from wearing stunningly beautiful clothes to dancing and singing your heart out with your cousins.

With one of the country’s most beloved festivals here, take a look at some of Diwali’s most famous sequences to some of Bollywood’s most memorable films. This wish list is all you really need if you are a movie buff or just want to relax and enjoy a Diwali themed movie this holiday season.


Don’t we all remember Ishaan from the movie Taare Zameen Par? The Darsheel Safary character is getting ready to go to a dorm after Diwali. It is one of the most painful sequences in the movie and Darsheel’s sadness is perfectly combined with Diwali’s festive mood.


This is a perfect illustration of how religious events and family celebrations function as binding units for each individual, requiring faith, sacrifice, love, and compromise. In the film, there is a joyous celebration of the festival of lights with the arrival of a new baby in the family.


Diwali celebration is very important in Vaastav because it pushes the film forward. Sanjay Dutt, who plays a cod in the movie, returns to the chawl to celebrate Diwali with his family. As expected, his family does not approve of his life decisions. But that does not stop him from visiting them during the Diwali, laden with wealth.


Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’s title tune provides a glimpse of how the Raichands celebrate Diwali, with luxurious scenery, beautifully dressed women dancing with diyas and a perfect family. The final series of the song, in which Jaya Bachchan feels the presence of Shah Rukh Khan even before she enters the house, is unforgettable.


We wish we had the flawless style of Sonam Kapoor (Aisha) in this movie. Aisha is a realistic girl next door who, when it comes to dealing with men and her love life, is almost all of us. This short scene of Diwali in the movies depicts her in an amazing but jealous Arjun boyfriend who returned to New York, Aarti.


Pairon Mein Bandhan Hai from the 2000 film Mohabbatein (2000) not only takes place in a Diwali setting but also appears in a focal point of the film. All six protagonists of the film, who were previously afraid to confess their feelings in front of the character of Amitabh Bachchan, finally do. Do not miss King Khan performing dhol at the climax of the song.
