This Valentine’s week, love is in the air, as is the faint scent of infidelity and betrayal. Like Shakun Batra Gehraiyaan gearing up for release on Friday, February 11, the film explores the theme of complicated relationships and infidelity.
With an exciting cast consisting of Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa, fans cannot contain their excitement.
So, as a respite, we bring a list of Bollywood binge movies that have dealt with similar themes:
The 1981 movie Silsila directed by Yash Chopra starred Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan and Rekha in the lead roles. While the film flopped at the box office, its songs (India’s favorite Holi song ‘Rank Barsé‘ was in the movie…need I say more?) and the movie itself has become a timeless classic.
It was also the last time this trio worked together. In the movie, Amitabh’s character ‘Amit’ loves Chandni (Rekha) but is forced to marry Shobha (Jaya Bachchan) after his brother’s untimely death.
Later he meets Chandni who is also married now but decides to rekindle their love. The film is full of twists and beautiful performances. Watch Amitabh and Rekha’s Electrical Chemistry Movie!
