Who says that passing the parcel or Antakshiri is a game too old school? Are ‘Spinning the bottle’ or ‘Never have I ever’ not games for Indian festivals? Have you ever tried to give them a Bollywood twist? Bollywood is just such a big part of our lives as Indians that there’s no way that it can make our festivals, dull and boring! So here are some Bollywood-inspired Diwali parties and game ideas to make your Diwali just as dramatic as it is bright!
Check out some of these game ideas!
Hum Aapke Hai Kaun – Passing the Parcel
Inspired by the film, you can play this one with family as they do because this is one thing that never gets too old!
Kapoor and Sons – Spin the Bottle
Either this can be played with friends exactly how it’s played in the film or infused with a Bollywood twist like two truths and one lie about a film or fave actor. So when the bottle stops, the person has to say these things and other people have to guess.!
Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani – Never I Have Ever
Same way, either play it like it’s played in the film or infuse it with a Bollywood flair by adding scenes/ scenarios from films that you have done or not done!
Ludo – Ludo
Now a board game can be boring but once bets are involved the stakes are higher and so is the adrenaline rush. But if money is something that you don’t want to involve then how about bringing the board game into reality just like in the film? Divide yourself among the four colors and one person as the dice keep giving different puzzles to solve to reach the final prize. How about that?
Old-school films – Antakshri
Even though this one is inspired by many old-school films, this is one game that never gets old and if you want to give a modern twist then, how about including raps?
Dumb charades via dialogues
Dumb charades are something that each of us have played one too many times in our lives but how about giving each other Bollywood dialogues to enact and guess instead of giving films we wouldn’t know of? Isn’t that more fun?
Guess the movie via Pictionary/ Complete the Lyrics
Instead of guessing the film through Dumb charades, how about guessing them while drawing some clues or including a game of completing the lyrics of the most unheard songs or a part that’s usually not sung often?
Musical Chairs/ Freeze Dance
Yes sure, musical chairs are what children play but it’s so fun even when adults play it or convert it to freeze dance where you dance to the craziest of Bollywood songs and freeze at the most unusual part and whoever unfreezes first is out.
