Among the big festivals in India, Holi is a time for friends and family to get together and douse each other in colours as they gorge sumptuous sweets like gujiyas and halwa, have thandai (especially with bhang) and then fill up on puri-subzi and a lot more.
The festival of colours is also an important part of Bollywood. From its grandeur to vibrancy, Hindi films have for decades captured the best of this celebration on the big screen.
