Yes, that time of the year is here, Karva Chauth is here- and we know that you just cannot help think about food while waiting for the moon. But hey, if dolling up and getting ready like a bride isn’t quite enough to keep you from thinking about drops of water for your parched lips and some, any, sliver of food to stop your tummy’s rumbling complaints, how about mixing the wait with some mushy music and dialogues about Karva Chauth?
We bet the adorable chemistry and the LOVE-ly lyrics will make the wait a piece of cake…ooh, cake- ask hubby dear to get cake on his way back from office- what better way to break the fast than cake, eh?
Suggested read: Did you know the fascinating story behind Karva Chauth?
Check out our top 5 suggestions:
1. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge
This one had to top the list, didn’t it? The adorable scene where Kajol is throwing her lovely tantrums until she learns that Shahrukh too, has gone hungry all day, so he can keep the fast with her…aww…no wonder guys blame him for raising our expectations… but that’s what it’s gotta be, isn’t it ladies?
And here’s the song:
2. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
The closest one can get to the feeling that runs faster than blood in your veins when you love someone more than anything in the world – is baked in right here – in this Udit Narayan- Alka Yagnik song – with the charming Salman Khan and the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai personalizing Karva Chauth like never before…
And ohh, the lehenga she is wearing- wow!
3. Ishq Vishq
Now this one came across as forced to many, but I loved it. True, Amrita Rao, in her girl next door avatar seems like a misfit in these modern times, but her simplicity and honesty is heart-wrenching. She managed to tug at my heartstrings in this emotional scene where she tells Shahid that the custom isn’t just a custom for her, but a way of expressing love. And isn’t this what Karva Chauth is truly about, ladies?
Here’s the musical treat that follows:
4. Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Well, Shahrukh-Kajol had to be on this list another time. After all, they are THE definition of romance, aren’t they? The Karva Chauth sequence packed into the evergreen Bole Chudiyaan number was just spot on.
All I want to say… aake meri duniya mein waapas naa jaana, sehra baandh ke maahi tu mere ghar aana… 😉
Okay, this one might not be the most perfect one as it involves infidelity of sorts, but the song sure made it to the top charts and people’s hearts for months after! That scene where you see Shamita Shetty in an modish red sharara and dazzling jewelry, watching Emraan Hashmi through the sieve, just takes my heart away..as do the lyrics and the singing..
To All you lovely ladies out there..Happy Karva Chauth from Team NLT!
