BOLLYWOOD THEME IDEAS
Om Shanti Om
WHY : Because you love Shah Rukh Khan and the 70s boho era.
WHAT TO WEAR : Om Shanti Om glorified Bollywood in the 70s, which was all about bold prints, bright colours and free love clothing. Women can wear anything from minis and maxis to halters and bell bottoms. For something more off-beat, go for a plaid shirt with hot pants. Or cover up in a long empire line dress or kaftan. For those of you who want to go traditional, a body-hugging kurti and churidar is the perfect option. Complete the look with a high bun or French knot, some flowers, kohl-rimmed eyes, platforms and danglers. If you really want to go all-out, get yourself a wig and huge orange-rimmed shades. Men can flaunt their bods in bell-bottoms and tight shirts.If you’re ready to experiment even more, go as your fave 70’s star – Rajesh Khanna. Blues, reds and other bright colours plus stone-rimmed boots will get you the look.
FOOD : Add some Bollywood flavour to your festive food by giving your dishes filmi names: An SRK Korma, Shilpa Ki Diet Poppadum, a Kareena’s Size 0 Veg Platter, Phataka Priyanka Paneer… more fun planning than even eating!
DECOR : Decorate your party with film posters from the 70s – those of Amar Akbar Anthony, Sholay or Zanjeer would work like a charm. The 70s was also about the disco – so lots of psychedelic lights and disco balls please.
MUSIC : Apart from playing music from OSO, don’t forget to get the real 70s music from old-school Bollywood for a little nostalgia.
GAMES : Dumb charades with 70s film names and perhaps even a dance-off!
GIFTS : Bejewelled sindoor boxes are an ideal gift, so that your guests don’t forget Deepika’s ‘Ek chutki sindoor ki keemat….!
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
WHY : Because Karan Johar’s your fave director.
WHAT TO WEAR : Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham saw Kajol play a traditional housewife in glamorous saris and ever since then, you’ve been dying to wear that sexy chiffon in your closet. So unashamedly pull it out of the closet and finish the look with lots of bangles and a mang tikka. If you want to be Poo, a la Kareena, from the film, then wear a mini with a luxe top. Slip on some leather or a faux fur jacket and accessorise with anklets and bracelets. In true Manish Malhotra fashion, layer your hair and leave it loose. Men who want to go formal could choose anything from a well-stitched suit in basic colours to a traditional, bejewelled sherwani and stole in off-white, beige or black like Shah Rukh did in the song Yeh Ladki…
FOOD : Chandni Chowk and Delhi play a huge role at this party, so why not arrange for a traditional Dilli chaat stall to add some more ethnic flavour? Hrithik’s character is often referred to as Laddoo in K3G, so this party will definitely be incomplete without a variety of laddoos!
DECOR : Dress up different areas of your house with scented lights and designer oil-lamps, just like Jaya Bachchan did in the opening scene of the film. Take from Bole Choodiyan and decorate your house with giant coloured bangles.
MUSIC : Play a mix of Indian and English music – for no Karan Johar movie is complete without a trip to the US or the UK. In the movie, Kareena’s character was styled on Britney Spears, so why not play some of Britney’s songs to get the crowd at your party dancing?
GAMES : When Kareena met Hrithik for the first time in the film, she gave him a tongue-twister. Get rib-tickling tongue twisters and ask your guests to read them out aloud. And for those hungry guests, include a laddoo eating contest too.
GIFTS : Assorted sweet boxes with a range of laddoos, bangles for the women and fancy midnight stoles for the men.
WHY : Because there’s a cricketer hidden inside you…
WHAT TO WEAR : Gracy Singh plays a village belle in this film. You can be the belle of your ball by pairing an interesting choli with a mid-length ghagra and draping a dupatta over your head. Accessorise this look with oxidised or silver jewellery and get someone to plait your hair and tie a traditional parandi for you. If you want to go western, copy Rachel Shelly’s style and get an old-fashioned gown made finished with an umbrella and a hat.
And for men who want to flaunt their six packs, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss – dress yourself like Aamir’s cricket team – in linen dhotis, turbans and a sleeveless linen vest. Or get yourself a British officer’s uniform.
FOOD : Make your party the talk of town by serving Indian and British delicacies. Pies and cakes, as well as rabdi and gulab jamuns. If you want to keep your food Indian, give the dishes international names. Change gajar ka halwa to carrot pudding and dal to spicy lentil soup.
DECOR : Create a village at your party place by having mini versions of the bullock-cart, a hay stack and make-beleive huts. To add that Lagaan touch, create a cricket pitch and put up cricketers’ posters.
MUSIC : Treat your guests to live folk music and old waltzes.
GAMES : A Lagaan theme would be incomplete without a game of cricket, so arrange for some short friendly matches. For those who aren’t that keen, organise games such as fist fights (for men) and turban tying (for women).
GIFTS : Gift your guests decorated cricket bats and balls.
Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
WHY : Because you’re a huge fan of family dramas.
WHAT TO WEAR : This movie was actually one about a big, fat Indian wedding, so dress in your traditional best. Men can wear silk sherwanis with mojris and stoles and women can swish about in ghagra cholis and saris. Accessorise your sari with a peek-a-boo blouse like Madhuri wore while she danced to Didi Tera… If you really want to stand out, then dress as Bindu from the movie in a bright shalwar kameez and over-sized shades.
FOOD : Stick with traditional food and replace the fizzy drinks with lassi, chaans and thandai. For starters, go green with hara bhara kebabs and paneer pakoras. A sumptuous thali would be great for the main course.
DECOR : Decorate your entrance with traditional flowers or cloth garlands and create elaborate rangoli with coloured powder or flowers. Remember Salman’s constant companion in Hum Apke Hain Kaun? His mandolin. Use it as a dEcor highlight! Go a step further by decorating your house with lots of musical instruments such as the tabla, the sitar and the shehnai. Surprise your guests with a mehendi artist!
MUSIC : Play family-oriented songs to add that special warm touch to your party. Take it a step ahead by organising a family karaoke system, where the entire family can sing along.
GAMES : Ideal family games would be antakshari, musical chairs or pass the parcel. Come up with interesting and funny punishments for losers.
GIFTS : Cute photo frames for everyone to fit adorable family portraits in.
