Karva Chauth In Hindi Cinema

Karva Chauth is an Indian festival observed by the women in our country to pray for their husband’s long life.The festival has been celebrated in most family-oriented Bollywood dramas with the participation of the entire clan,There is a joke that Yash Chopra and Karan Johar can not make a film without a situation of Karwa Chauth in their film.Researching on this I found that the first time this festival was picturised in 1965 film Bahu Beti. Remember the song Aaj Hai Karwa Chauth Sakhi ReThis was the first song that was picturised in Hindi Cinema.Another old song I remember Aaj Hai Karwa Chauth Ka Vrat from the film Karwa Chauth released in 1978.
The trend started in 1990s with the movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam,1992, Hum Apke Hain Kaun 1994, later it was Punjabitised by Yash Chopra from DDLJ. From elaborate dresses to fancy make-up and royal sets, Hindi movies have romanticised the festival so much that no se Bollywood fan wants to miss a chance to ape the stars. The fast is traditionally celebrated in the states of Rajasthan, parts of Uttar PradeshHimachal PradeshHaryana, and Punjab.Every state has his own style of celebrating this fast but in films only Punjabi style is shown.In 1994 film Chand Ka Tukda a song was picturised in Gujarati style.
Here are some of the best Karwa Chauth songs from some of our favourite Hindi movies.
