Jab We Met
Personally, I have watched this movie more than 15 times. And even today when I am too exhausted to find new things to watch, or life gets hard, this is the first movie that pops up in my mind.
Geet and Aditya are the one’s we call soulmates. Starcrossed lovers, you know. They are the one’s who takes care of us more than our parents, they are the one’s who accept defeat just so we can be happy, and they are the one’s who travel across the world just to find us and to let us know that they are right beside us. The grumpy Aditya falls in love with a sunshine girl Geet. Classic. Boring. Right? No. It’s a gem of a movie that will show you that guys like Aditya do exist, even if we have to go through some of the Anshuman(s) to find them.
Kal Ho Na Ho
“Pretty girl, dekho dekho naa, oh pretty girl” we love the movie, definitely, but this song, is everything that one could wish for. The beats, the dance, the looks but over everything the lyrics. It’s sad but it’s true, they don’t make such movies now, not do they sing songs like this anymore. This movie is the perfect example of “love triangle” and perfect one to watch if you want to experience heartbreak. Aman was, and will always be the lover who will stay in our hearts. He does, but the bonds that he made and the relationships he bettered will always live on. Just like his love for his lover.
Main Hoon Naa
“Tumhe jo main dekha, jo hosh tha who toh gayaaaaa” really they don’t at all make movies like this anymore, which is truly just sad. The chemistry, the story, the twist, the love of a mother and the protection of a son, this movie holds everything in it. SRK truly lives in our hearts because he has given us reasons to believe in love time and again.
The jokes we make in college, and the principal we fear, the classes we bunk and the homework we miss with all the danger our country constantly us, and soldiers like Ram who let us have peaceful sleep at night, this movie represents everything that Bollywood is.
A heart-touching family movie that makes the viewers realises the love a mother holds for them and how they are sometimes blindsided by their own children. It’s a journey of a woman who finds the confidence in herself to be better, to be more of herself. It’s a realisation that sometimes our respective spouses make us feel small and forget to appreciate our qualities and push us to be better.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Again, they were best friends for years, before he falls in love with the new girl and leaves his best friend behind. But fate, fate always has it’s way to make us stand right there in front of the one’s we belong. ‘Kuch kuch hota hai’ is an evergreen saga and story of honest friendships, love of a family and how some people are truly just made for each other, even if sometimes, it takes years for them to be together again.
