Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi is the 10-day veneration of Lord Ganesh. It also marks the beginning of the festival season in India. Festivals have always been a big part of Indian family values and culture, in fact, the first ever Ganesh Chaturti was one of its kind social occasion organized by national activist Lokmanya Tilak to bring the community together during the British era. The significance of the festival has grown since that age and has now become the core of every Indian household where ‘Ganpati Bappa’ is fondly welcomed into our hearts and homes.
India prides itself on its close-knit family ties during festivities and it is a common sight to see the whole of an extended family gather under one roof to celebrate this auspicious occasion. Just as the women get busy in making sweets and delicious food items the men and children decorate the house. The best time is spent leisurely chatting and binge-watching movies together over a scrumptious meal. ZEE5 has come up with a mixture of family blockbuster entertainers this season.
You can watch Salman Khan in his best action avatar in Wanted. Or groove to his energetic steps in the praises of Lord Ganesha in the famous Jalwa song from the movie. My personal favourite happens to be ABCD and ABCD 2. Watching Prabhu Deva is a treat to the eyes, not to mention the little kids in the family who go berserk matching his dance moves. Beats from the movie Banjo imitate the real-life Ganesh procession that immerses India in a vibrant pink pitch fever. Varun Dhawan can be adorable with his comic timing and chocolate boy attics in Judwaa 2 we know you will never miss on this one.
So while you implore on Lord Ganesha to shower his precious blessings on your family, you can count on ZEE5 to keep your guests entertained with more popular options like Ramaiya Vastavaiya, Phata Poster Nikla Hero, Jab We Met and A Flying Jatt among many others which can bring your family together for your very own Hum Saath Saath Hain moment.
Family movie time can become an Instagram worthy event when you set it up an open-air screening complete with snacks and themed carpet entry. If you cannot come up with an outdoor setup then an indoor movie night with a projector is the perfect way to catch up your favourite flicks.
You really do not need to pack all of yourselves into a car and navigate through kilometres of traffic just to enjoy a movie night with your family. ZEE5 is the millennial way of enjoying movies in the comfort of your house.
