For many of us, watching movies is one of the best ways to unwind and enjoy ourselves. And you can count on Bollywood to have a film for every mood.
- Dear Zindagi
This film impresses on every level: great story, superb acting, hypnotic melodies, and dialogue that lingers long after the credits have rolled. Every time you see this film, you will be left with a warming sensation in your heart and a new lesson!
Kaira, sometimes known as Koko, is a sassy, irrational, and unlikable character. It’s baffling as to why she’s making the decisions she is. She’s a shopaholic who finds comfort in a few good pals.
Shah Rukh Khan plays Koko’s therapist, Jehangir Khan, in the film. He is charming and has a pearl of magnificent and ragged wisdom you’ve never seen before. He gives her a fresh outlook on life. She learns that happiness is all about finding solace in life’s flaws.
- Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
The film deals with a rather modest subject: the internal dynamics of an ostentatiously wealthy family. A flashback reveals that the childless couple adopted a son, Rahul (SRK), but was startled when Rohan was born a few years later, putting Rahul in the awkward situation of being the “eldest” child of his parents but not the “natural” kid. When Rahul falls in love with Anjali (Kajol), a cheerful and comically clumsy Punjabi girl from Delhi’s Chandni Chowk, whose younger sister Pooja is Rohan’s classmate, the family becomes a model of love and respect. All of this comes as a shock to adult Rohan (Hrithik Roshan), prompting him to embark on a journey to London to reunite with his family.
- Andaz Apna Apna
How can you talk about comedy without mentioning this classic? Keep in mind, the Crime Master Gogo! Things may be going crazy in real life, but they’ll never be as perplexing as figuring out who the actual Teja is, and who is Mark Kidhar?
Do dost ek hi pyaali: Sharing is caring
It makes no difference if your friend is real or not. It’s always a nice gesture to share a drink. Keep friends close, keep competition close (and even confined in a police station if possible) with a cup of tea that the other person pays for, like the crafty and devious Amar does. That’s a lesson we all learn from the movie.
- Dil Dhadakne Do
Zoya Akhtar is the best at portraying the rich and famous family problems. When it comes to parental pressure, gender bias, sibling affection, and cousin revelry, Dil Dhadakne Do prove that class doesn’t matter. Also, Farhan Akhtar is the voice of feminism in a wonderful sequence!
- Jab We Met
Easily one of the finest romantic comedies to be made, the situations in this movie keep you laughing, no matter how many times you watch it. One of the most important lessons Jab We Met taught us was that, like Geet, one should never destroy one’s, inner kid. Geet was a vivacious personality who relished every bit of her existence. She performed what her inner child advised, which at times appeared foolish, but we witnessed how much joy it brought her. Similarly, there are times in life when we become preoccupied with our concerns and fail to enjoy every moment. This is the time to channel your inner child and do the simple things that used to make you happy as a kid!
- 3 Idiots
Students whose parents have given up everything for their education are expected to succeed in India 2.0. But when three bright misfits — Farhan (R. Madhavan), Raju (Sharman Joshi), and Rancho (Aamir Khan) — realise that their futures aren’t precisely written in a mathematics book, they form a friendship.
The film’s positive aspects are overshadowed by a sluggish start and a piece of tense music (save for the pleasant “Aal Izz Well”). Khan, Madhavan, and Joshi’s perceptive, delicate acting clashes with Omi Vaidya’s buffoonish portrayal as an ugly school rival, and renowned character actor Irani, whose character is saddled with an unneeded — and comical — lisp.
- Rang De Basanti
After a group of friends graduate from Delhi University, they listlessly haunt their old campus, until a British filmmaker (Alice Patten) casts them in a film she’s making about freedom fighters under British rule. Although the group is largely apolitical, the tragic death of a friend owing to local government corruption awakens their patriotism. Inspired by the freedom fighters they represent in the film, the friends collectively decide to avenge the killing.
- Taare Zameen Par
Ishaan Awasthi (Darsheel Safary), an 8-year-old kid, finds it difficult to reconcile his world of colours, kites, and animals with that of his peers, who are more concerned with studies and homework. Ishaan’s parents decide to send him to a residential school after receiving numerous complaints.
His boarding school life is no different; he is harassed and ridiculed by his teachers, and he is the class’s laughingstock. He feels even more despondent, inferior, and unable to cope with his inabilities now that he is away from home. Ram, his new teacher, succeeds in improving Ishaan’s confidence level through time, patience, and care. He persuades Ishaan’s parents and other teachers that he is not odd, but rather a unique child with unique abilities.
The ideal way to spend time with your family is to watch movies. Classic films like these elevate the experience and the film (Believe me it does). So, when are you going to have a good time with your family?
