GOOD KARVA CHAUTH 2022: Karwa Chauth is one of the Hindi film industry’s favorite festivals to portray romance. The occasion is used as a narrative tool by many filmmakers to engage audiences with love and charm, song and dance. According to Hindu belief, brides observe a fast on this day until they can see the moon in the evening. On this Karwa Chauth, we list the most memorable Bollywood scenes over the years.
DILWAALE DULHANIYA THE JAAYENGE (1995)
26 years after its release, the romantic drama Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol still dominates everyone’s hearts. In an attempt to win the hearts of Simran’s family, Raj wins the hearts of the whole country. Every scene in this film is a classic but Karwa Chauth’s scene is surely the icing on the cake. Simran keeps her fast and pretends to get sick before everyone else so Raj can come and feed her without anyone seeing them.
HUM DIL BY CHUKE SANAM (1999)
This love triangle gave us Karwa Chauth’s most memorable song with Chaand chhupa badal mein as the lead couple of Salman and Aishwarya celebrate their special moment.
Karwa Chauth’s sequence between Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini is heartbreakingly beautiful. With the two fasting for each other, the moment when Bachchan pretends to eat and Hema realizes his lie is bittersweet. The scene ends with a beautiful song of nostalgia, Main yahaan tu wahaan.
THANK YOU (2011)
This scene directed by Aneez Bazmee is different from the other movies on this list because of its genre. It’s a moment of comedic brilliance with the late legendary actor Irrfan Khan showing off his comedic timing. The scene is followed by a hilarious chase involving the main men.
BIWI N°1 (1999)
This scene is memorable due to its importance in the plot exposing the character of Salman cheating on his wife played by Karishma Kapoor, along with the character of Sushmita Sen. The final exposure occurs because of their pet dog, and the film takes a dramatic turn with this twist.
