As Friendship Day is a time to celebrate one of life’s most precious bonds and reminisce about the good times you had with your friends, what better way to celebrate than by watching movies from Bollywood?
Friendship Day takes on greater significance when, as adults, we realize that maintaining a friendship takes time and effort. Adulthood also brings the realization of the importance of maintaining a relationship with the people who matter to you. As we celebrate Friendship Day on August 7, we all need beautiful, life-changing films that remind us of the bond between best friends, where we trust each other unconditionally. Friendship has been a popular theme in Bollywood with a number of movies dedicated to this special bond. Some movies explore friendship between people with completely opposite personalities. Others explore how the relationship is maintained on a daily basis. As Friendship Day is a time to celebrate one of life’s most precious bonds and reminisce about the good times you had with your friends, what better way to celebrate than by watching movies from Bollywood?
As we all prepare to celebrate this special day, here are some of the others not to miss:
Dil Chahta Hai
We could all relate to Akash, Sameer or Sidharth. A whole generation linked to these three friends. We all wanted to plan a reunion with our long lost friends after watching this movie.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
The film is a perfect example of the crucial role our friends play in our lives. The character of Kabir Thapar (Ranbir) aka Bunny adds color to the otherwise boring life of Naina (Deepika Padukone) by making her realize her inner beauty. Avinash and Aditi, played by Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin, are the supportive friends we all need.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Three friends, a road trip and a perfect script make this movie a treat to watch. The story has the right balance of jokes and emotions that make you plan a reunion with your friends. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is a film that hooks you on the screen from the first minute. The outstanding performance of the cast makes this a definitive watch.
This movie proves that some friendships stay intact, no matter how long it’s been since we’ve met our best friends. The bond can be intact even if you meet after a long time. Chances are you’ll quickly call your long-lost friend after watching this Aamir Khan movie.
Munna Bhai MBBS
The friendship of Munnabhai and his assistant Circuit won our hearts. The plot would not have been pleasant without the absolutely crazy complicity between these two characters.
