If you are ever having a low weekend or one of those random gloomy days, here are some cute, feel-good Bollywood films you can watch to get an instant mood lift !
Socha Na Tha
Before he made classics like Jab We Met or Rockstar, Imtiaz Ali gave us this beautiful film about two people who fall in love after rejecting each other in an arranged marriage set up. For anyone who have just hit their 20s and facing adulting, this one is max relatable. A journey of how Viren & Aditi open-up to each other and finally find love within. Abhay Deol’s one of the best performance till date. And the songs are such under appreciated gems i swear!!! 🙂
Tu Hai Mera Sunday
SO, SO, SO, SO UNDERRATED. A story of a group of friends in Mumbai who play football every Sunday. But what happens when they are stopped from playing at the beach? In a quest to find a new spot, they discover love & camaraderie among each other which goes beyond the sport 🙂 Barun Sobti, Avinash Tiwary & Shahana Goswami, along with others, will leave you charmed at the end of this beautiful movie!
I Hate Luv Storys
A girl & a boy fall in love at a Bollywood film set. Sounds Filmy enough? Well the movie is heartwarming & filmy through and through!!! A boy who hates love stories, a girl named Simran with a bf called Raj (DDLJ much?) and a tale of emotions, love & crazy friends as they finally come together. The music album has the best songs & picturisation ever- Sonam’s Bahara, Imran’s Sadka kiya etc. are a whole heart in this cutesy movie.
Jhootha Hi Sahi
Two strangers. A suicide helpline. A midnight call that binds them together. But what happens when they meet in real life & their worlds collide? A rom com world of some desis in London is so heartwarming :”) This movie was way ahead of its time by covering topics like child before marriages, homosexuality, mental health problems & India-Pakistan friends. Also, the music album by AR Rahman will steal your heart!
Two heartbroken & suicidal people, Kiara & Akash, meet by chance at the emergency ward and they decide to live their life to the fullest till New Year’s Eve. What starts as a no strings attached, becomes a love story of two who make each other realise their true values & life’s purpose. The most underrated movie & soundtrack, Tujhe bhula diya is a tearjerker and looking at Ranbir & Priyanka in Hairaat will fill you up with adrenaline in no time
Love Breakups Zindagi
Jai & Naina along with their friends find their lives changing after attending a wedding of common friends. Its has the typical strangers falling in love & discovering life vibes with two parallel couples. Zayed Khan & Dia Mirza make the most cutesy pair ever. And i guarantee you will be humming to “Rozaana” in no time & dancing to “Rab Raakha
Just a normal Delhi girl with stress-free life? Naaaah Aisha has much more from a chaotic bunch of friends, a great social life, trips with her gang to a brimming romance with Arjun-a Mills & Boons kinda story set in Dilli as Aisha learns how to value friends, family, money & love. In retrospect, one sees themselves in so many layers of the film istg. And don’t we all love its music album by Amit Trivedi already? I mean Sham is everybody’s peaceful song no??
Qarib Qarib Single
You know those basic two poles apart people meet & fall in love on the journey of life? Well this one literally takes you on a long journey as an eccentric Yogi & a stringent Jaya meet on a dating app and decide to spend time with each other on a long trip. Well technically they also meet some of their exes so uhmm kaafi drama. Also, Irrfan & Parvathy are like the most unusual couple but so awwdorable <3 *plays “Jaane de’ on loop
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu
This highly underrated movie was a lil hatke from the usual boy-meets-girl with-contrasting-personalities’ story. Two individuals, Raina & Rahul, who have their own small problems in life, get married on one drunk night and start on a journey of making amends with their families as well as their own heart. The ending isn’t typical, instead there is a sweet surprise for rom com fans 😉 The music album is so soothing as well as full of energy at par- Gubbare for !
Add these movies to your watch list if you haven’t watched them or re-watch for a comfy good feeling 🙂
