Looking into the history of Bollywood for the past two and half decades, one thing is crystal clear that Bollywood loves the Diwali time. Since the time people started staying away from their home and made returning home during Diwali a tradition – Bollywood has used this scope beautifully. Go back to your parent’s childhood – they never had big-budget Diwali releases. It all started with the open gates of globalization if you think deeply.

Anyways, so, Diwali is the time when people meet and greet their family, close relatives, and friends. Everyone wants to spend some quality time and movies are one of the binding forces here. People love to go to the theaters with their loved ones and fortunately Bollywood has always gifted some amazing movies to its large audience on Diwali. They say Goddess Lakshmi blesses people on Diwali. Looking at the Box Office report of the last 25 years, it seems Bollywood has got all her blessings as the Hindi Movie industry has profited the most from Diwali.

Check out the list of the historic Diwali releases of Bollywood that created big Dhamaka:
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995)

This is the longest-running Indian cinema. It was the directorial debut of Aditya Chopra and till today remains one of the most iconic movies ever made in Bollywood. Every girl hopes to meet a Raj while on a trip and those leather jackets of SRK are still a favorite among youngsters. A sweet and innocent love story set in Europe and Punjab – this movie always make us fall in love with the concept of love …. All over again (just like its tagline)

Raja Hindustani (1996)

Every actor has that one movie that plays a pivotal role in his/her career. This movie changed the graph of Karisma Kapoor in Bollywood. The love story of a rich girl and poor boy is nothing new in Bollywood and this movie gave a fresh & innocent touch to the same old storyline. Supported by soothing & melodious music, this movie introduced Karisma Kapoor in a new way. It set the Box Office on fire and the make-up & costumes (Manish Malhotra) of Lolo set a new trend among the youngsters those days.

Dil To Pagal Hai (1997)

The Box Office was blazing, no one could stop raving about the trio on-screen, the costumes (sporty and traditional both) became a trend, the music is one of the most soulful albums of Bollywood till date, and it also fetched all the prestigious awards that year. A musical love story circling a theater group is one of the milestone movies of 100+ years old Bollywood.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)

Karan Johar stepped into direction with this college romance tale where an 8-year-old girl goes to bring the love of her father’s life back. Shah Rukh Khan & Kajol got another blockbuster to their name while Rani Mukerji got a secure place in this big Bollywood. The music, Mauritius, cool accessories, funky & sporty outfits, POLO t-shirts, and of course Friendship Day & Friendship Bands became trendy from this flick.

Hum Saath Saath Hai (1999)

Coming from Rajshri Productions, this is another non-violent film dealing with family issues. The year was 1999 and the formation of nuclear families just started when this movie came and made people believe in the magic of big families. In today’s time, it is hard to find such a big family and perhaps that is another reason why people go back to this movie again and again.

Mohabbatein (2000)

Aditya Chopra directed this movie to tell the story of a college where “falling in love” is a taboo. It sounds quite strange but it was believable back then. So, to save the three heroes of the movie who fall in love, there comes SRK with a violin in his hand, charm in his eyes, and confidence in his words. He taught to write love letters on a dry leaf, taught to love fearlessly, and also taught that loving only one person in life and beyond death is so easy. With soothing & melodious music, this movie gave six fresh faces to Bollywood.

Veer-Zaara (2004)

No one can design and dream of a love story the way Yash Chopra does. With his death, there is truly a vacuum in Bollywood love stories. We won’t get those timeless love stories anymore. This movie was special because Yashraj Films launched their music label YRF music with this movie. For this launch, they used the unused music of the Late Madan Mohan – recreated by his son. An Indo-Pak love story that made the president of Pakistan also praise the outstanding performances, this movie always makes you shed a tear. The impeccably emotional dialogues and scenes of SRK-Rani were the high-points for me. This movie still makes us believe in the power of selfless love. The lavish sets, beautifully designed costumes, beautiful cameos, and perfect cast won’t let you forget this movie easily.

Om Shanti Om (2007)

This is one of the biggest hits of SRK’s career and the only hit Farah Khan is probably looking for nowadays. The old reincarnation story was told here again but with the backdrop of a film personalities. A junior artist falls in love with a leading lady and dies due to a villain. They are reincarnated to complete their love story and the most unbelievable part was that the mother and friend of that junior artist were still alive to be a part of the lives of the reincarnated ones. Bizzare, impossible, and yet this Dard-E-Disco won hearts of people

Golmaal (2008, 2010, 2017)

The first one is still the best in this Rohit Shetty series. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th one got their Diwali dates and became big earners of the respective years. The story of 6 friends continues in various plots and problems with regular sidekicks like Sanjay Mishra, Murali Sharma, Ashwini Kalsekar, etc. People just want to have a great time laughing with their friends and family which is what the Golmaal series make them do.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)

This movie directed by Karan Johar saved the career of Ranbir Kapoor. After a few bad movies and a much-talked-about break-up, all he needed was a big hit. Karan Johar delivers what he does best and that is a story about love and friendship. Here, one friend fell in love with the other and not vice-versa. But that didn’t stop the other one from loving with the same dedication because there is immense power even in one-sided love. Songs, Anushka Sharma’s heavy Kohl eyes-nude lipsticks-heavy jewelry, and Aishwarya’s dialogues won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

Other festive seasons are also important these days and the top stars divide these big festivals among themselves. If you look closely, SRK has maximum Blockbusters that released in Diwali, Aamir has his Christmas, and Salman comes with Eid release every year. This Diwali will see Akshay Kumar with Housefull 4, Rajkumar Rao with Made In China, & Bhumi-Tapsee with Saand Ki Aankh. Hope they all do well and gift us some great stories to remember forever.

Munnabhai M.B.B.S., Lage Raho Munnabhai, 3 Idiots, PK, Sanju – this is the filmography of a genius named Rajkumar Hirani who is lovingly known as Raju Hirani. Most of the audience and members of the critic circuit divide Cinema into two broad groups – Art Cinema & Commercial Cinema. But this man has broken those fences. His cinema is worshipped by the masses and clapped by the critics. They win awards too and give a stronghold to one’s career.

Every single person who is associated with the movie-making business wants profit. That’s why a good story is a prime requirement. The idea of stories that we see on movies is largely based on the time we are living. Each era has some kind of challenges and moviemakers over the years have tapped in this area to create stories. Some directors simply highlight the features of the time like Anurag Kashyap in Gangs of Wasseypur or Raman Raghav 2.0. And then there are some directors like Ritwick Ghatak or Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who have tried to bring a revolution through their lenses. But Raju Hirani is a man of vision who doesn’t like walking the road with strong slogans to change the system. He has his signature way of striking the belief system of people.

My answer to the mentioned question of why Raju Hirani movies influence people has four answers that are mentioned below.

Larger Than Life Characters:

Larger than life characters doesn’t necessarily mean that the central character has to wear a Prada/Louboutin, walk-in stilettos, carry machine guns, etc. In Raju Hirani movies, the “larger than life” characters are different than what you have seen so far in Bollywood. They may not be rich but they are filled with extraordinary and revolutionary thoughts. Think of Munnabhai – a mafia of sorts who is fueled by revenge and instead of taking up the gun takes the route of simplicity and humanity to change the dean of a medical college (rather change the norms of the society). Think of PK – an alien who has no address in this big world, has no wealth, or has no motive, still gets robbed. He questions the methods we run the world and wins our hearts.

These larger than life characters are required in a country that is still considered to be poor. But the reality is in our country the percentage of middle-class is more. And that means there is a dream among masses to grow more and achieve success. This is where Raju Hirani succeeds. His movies are an inspiration to many because his characters always start from scratch and work very hard to gain success in the end.

The Art of Saying Simple Things Simply:

There is no need to stretch things unnecessarily when it can be resolved with simple discussions. Farhan Qureshi of 3 Idiots wanted to become a wildlife photographer but he couldn’t say those words simply to his father. Because he belongs to a middle-class family where his dad thinks that if my son becomes an engineer, we will lead a better life with comforts and luxury (that was a rampant thought in the ’80s and ’90s in India and still continues). That scene where he returns home skipping his “campus interview” and talks to his dad – makes everyone cry their heart out.

His Unique Campaigns:

Just think of the campaigns that his characters perform on screen and you will understand why his movies are so special. The campaigns that he runs in his stories are about bringing a change in the lifestyle of people with simple mechanisms. With Munnabhai M.b.B.S. he made “Jaadu ki Jhappi” so famous and so endearing. Whosoever in your family or close circle is shouting or throwing tantrums must be hugged. Why? Because no one actually is bad or walks with bad intentions of hurting others. He/she must be having a reason for that behaviour. And rather than judging, one must be compassionate and considerate towards them. With a simple hug, the anger melts down and you can then connect with that person in a better way.

In Lage Raho Munnabhai, he taught us “Gandhigiri”. The face of Baapu whom we see on notes has become almost obsolete in current times. Raju Hirani simply took up the Gandhian simple and honest way of living to bring changes. But again, the change won’t come in a single day. (Remember that pan stain scene?)

In 3 Idiots, he made one thing very clear to students and parents – don’t run after success, run after excellence, then, success will follow you. Whatever one likes, wherever the passion lies – one should continue honing that only day after day. That’s the simplest way to be both- happy and successful.

Reassuring Faith In Good:

In spite of so many dark areas, mistakes, and atrocities, he always shows us that “good” always meet us in the end. The evil or bad-men in his movies don’t die or get punished. He makes these characters understand the value of goodness and their ideology and principles change. That’s how life should also be. There is always a good and bad person inside all of us. The moment one understands the fact that there is nothing valiant about being bad – the change happens. That’s what happened to Lucky Singh in Lage Raho or Dean in Munnabhai or Virus in 3 Idiots. Therefore, he also hammers on the theory of “forgiveness”. Those who have done something bad must be forgiven so that they get a chance to improve themselves.

Now, who else can connect with the audience like that?

Every year more than 200 movies releases in Bollywood and some of them becomes blockbuster, some become a super flop, and then there are some that go beyond all these parameters and becomes iconic. Today’s blog is about those iconic Bollywood movies that released 10 years ago and made a mark with heart-winning stories, stupendous performances by the lead cast, beautiful music, and top-notch direction. The on-screen characters since then became a part of our lives – inspiring us, making us laugh, making us cry, and permanently making a home in our hearts and minds.

Take a look and remember some of the gems that released a decade ago.

3 Idiots:

Release Date- 25th December 2009

It is perhaps still the best from Rajkumar Hirani’s School of films. All his movies have beautiful concepts and are presented in a way that touches your hearts. 3 Idiots will always remain a special film because it reinforced a very simple logic especially to the parents – let your children be what they want to be rather than pressurizing them. Rancho said “run after excellence, success will follow you” – this phrase is still a motivation for many. The tale of friendship, love, ego, faith, and reunion is loved by people of all generations. It made all of us cry and laugh at the same time.

The spectacular Ladakh, Manali, Delhi, the “baby delivery with a vacuum cleaner”, gate-crashing a wedding, going to dinner at Raju Rastogi’s place, Bhindi – 12 Rs/kg, etc. – frame by frame this movie has become a memorable one among audiences. Above all, it is one of the highest-grossing movies of all times.

Wake Up Sid:

Release Date- 2nd October 2009

It is a cult movie and coming from a hugely commercial production house that has produced only love stories this movie was quite unexpected. The beautiful love story between just out of college Sid and an aspiring writer from Kolkata, Aisha who is way more mature than Sid was knitted beautifully. 2009 was quite an exceptional year for Dharma Productions which is absent in 2019. Karan Johar patronized this coming-of-age drama of a rich, casual, and spoilt brat who becomes a responsible guy. It was the first movie of Ayan Mukerji and he was flawless in his presentation of Mumbai, its people, the outsiders, the monsoon, job life, jazz space, and so many more. Sid Mehra played by Ranbir Kapoor was impeccable and so was the always charming & intelligent Konkona Sen Sharma.

The soulful music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy & Amit Trivedi and cinematography by Anil Mehta won the extra laurels for WUS.

Gulaal:

Release Date- 13th March 2009

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Gulaal is about the pursuit of power, an expedition for legitimacy, perceived injustice, and hypocrisy of the powerful. Set in the present-day Rajasthan the plot is provided by student politics of a university and a fictional secessionist movement consisting of former Rajput leaders who have become present-day elite. Kashyap handles such issues brilliantly and allows his actors to give a performance of a lifetime and this movie is no exception.

Dev.D:

Release Date- 6th February 2009

It released before the Valentine’s Day celebration and the prime USP was the unique poster. Bollywood has never seen such an interesting poster. Anurag Kashyap wrote the story along with Abhay Deol and gifted four brilliant performers to Bollywood – Kalki Koechlin, Mahi Gill, Abhay Deol, and Amit Trivedi. The unconventional music and quirky yet meaningful lyrics became the face of this movie. The modern-day rendition of Devdas was well accepted and still make us feel good and bad at the same time. It went on to win many awards and accolades.

Rocket Singh- Salesman of the Year:

Release Date- 11th December 2009

Newcomer Ranbir Kapoor essayed the role of Harpreet Singh Bedi, a middle-class salesman who has been a mediocre student all his life. But he dreams of being a successful businessman someday. And he does that really well. He is bullied in his office but he beautifully befriends all his colleagues (just like a smiling salesman) and ends up building his own company where everyone is a boss. A gripping story directed by Shimit Amin and edited by Arindam Ghatak, this movie fared well at the box office. It came from the Yashraj and was quite an un-Yashraj movie.

Paa:

Release Date- 4th December 2009

Who would have believed that a 67-year-old man would portray a 12-year-old boy and that too with conviction? Amitabh Bachchan played the role of Auro who has progeria – a rare disease where a child looks like an old man. He has the heart of a 12-year-old but his physical body looks and feels 5 times older. His mom is played by Vidya Balan and estranged father is played by Abhishek Bachchan. It is a heart-warming movie with stellar performances. And yes, Mr. Bachchan won another National Award for this role.

Kurbaan:

Release Date- 20th November 2009

This is the first serious movie from Dharma Productions. The sizzling chemistry between the then NEW couple Saif Ali Khan & Kareena Kapoor was the prime highlight of the movie followed by Rensil D’ Silva donning the director’s cap after writing a stellar Rang De Basanti. This movie had a very interesting setup and first half and not so amazing second half. But the performances from the cast was top notch. The story was about underground organizations attempt at instilling fear among people through mechanisms of terrorism in the USA. Although a flop movie, the movie is still remembered for its bold & mainstream attempt at global terrorism and soothing music by Salim-Sulaiman.

Kaminey:

Release Date- 14th August 2009

Shahid Kapoor is one of those talented actors who never got his due in Bollywood. The year was 2009 and he was fresh out of his long term relationship with Kareena Kapoor – and this is when all the great roles started to land in his lap. Kaminey is one of those career-changing roles in Shahid’s career which is one of the unique caper thriller movies of Bollywood. An exceptionally gripping narrative that gives Amol Gupte, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Priyanka Chopra, and Shahid Kapoor ample opportunities to shine. The story is set against the Mumbai Underworld backdrop and sees the rivalry between two brothers – one with a list and the other with a stutter. It is also remembered for presenting a sweet love story and of course, the nostalgia-ridden Gulzar lyrics supported by soul-stirring Vishal Bhardwaj music.

Love Aajkal:

Release Date- 31st July 2009

Love is love across time. The definition of love may change over generations but the feeling of pure & sacred love never changes over time. But yes, the perspective of comprehending one’s soul mate surely has changed over the years.

This is the basic premise of the cult movie. Imtiyaz Ali with his brilliantly Sufism romance came up with this breezy tale post Jab We Met and won hearts again. Personally, I didn’t like this movie while witnessing in the theater but gradually over time, I have developed a strange liking for this movie. Two souls who belong to each other are meant to be with each other – and no geography or theory or logic can keep them apart. Rishi Kapoor plays the older generation lover Veer Singh at whose restaurant Saif Ali Khan or Jai & Meera (Deepika Padukone) breaks up mutually throwing a party because their careers are beckoning them somewhere else.

Veer Singh shares his bold, dynamic, fearless, & romantic tale to Jai who finds it pretty strange because in his modern generation love has become quite casual. But he also never knew how strangely he will fall for Meera again and vice-versa. Meera even ends up marrying her boss (Rahul Khanna – oh so hot!) but breaks up the next day realizing her love for Jai never ended. This movie is remembered for its beautiful cinematography by Natarajan Subramaniam, exceptionally amazing music by Pritam, and of course the quirky yet heart-warming dialogues by Imtiyaz Ali – Tu Hamesha Correct Baat Bol Deti Hai Jaaneman…

Luck by Chance:

Release Date- 30th January 2009

That’s Zoya Akhtar’s maiden movie. That is one of those movies that never made numbers at the BO and still is a much-loved piece of cinema among the film lovers. Over the years the fans of this movie have just increased.

Grown up in a filmi-family, Zoya selected to tell the tale of 2 outsiders who want to work desperately in Bollywood and become famous. One of them simply focuses on good acting with little hope from a movie producer she is dating while the other one simply flows with the demands of time. He not only focuses on his craft of acting but smoothly fits into the shoes of the big Bollywood game. It is a movie about how movies and stars are made in Bollywood. Without being biased, this movie beautifully narrates the passion of a girl who wants an identity & zeal of a man who wants to be a star. Supported perfectly by Konkona, Farhan, Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, and Juhi Chawla – this movie had its heart in the right place.

Nothing visualize love better than our very own Bollywood. Bollywood movies make us laugh till our stomach hurts, cry our eyeballs out, and of course make us fall in love with love. At, Bollywood love never goes out of trend. But what makes us feel the same emotion is the chemistry between two actors. Over the span of 106 years of Indian Cinema, we’ve seen hundreds of pairs making us believe in their emotions with their acting skills. It’s amazing to watch these talented people emote so many emotions and it isn’t even easy to make the audience feel it too, kudos to them!

There are quite a few pairings that hold a special place in our hearts. Reason being their on-screen chemistry is so on point that it’s hard to not believe they aren’t in love. Bollywood perfectly influences us to dream big. Let us look at some of the most perfect 10 (the chosen ones) Bollywood on-screen couples, which are memorable & our absolute favorite. Over the years, these couples have helped us set some “Unrealistic” expectations from life. See, if yours on this list or not!

Let’s reflect on some of our favorite & memorable couples:

The couple was madly in love and hence made it to our list because of their unmatched on-screen chemistry as well.

Akshay Kumar- Katrina Kaif

In 2006, Akshay & Katrina was first paired for Humko Deewana Kar Gaye. The romantic drama was a huge fail at the box office but in 2007, another movie that had the duo was a hit! Namastey London, the unique love story about East meeting the West. The chemistry between Jazz & Arjun won the audiences’ heart. For all their fans, the good news is the pair are reuniting in Sooryavanshi, a Rohit Shetty Film in 2020.

Abhishek Bachchan- Aishwarya Rai

For aam aadmi, to witness Bachchan couple has etched their minds, but the couple is one of the rare jodis that has shone on the silver screen.

Shahid Kapoor-Kareena Kapoor

The real dilemma, do we love Shahid & Kareena or do we love Geet & Aditya? Kapoor Duo appeared together for the first time in Fida (2004). They were dating at the time and sadly ended after 3 years while shooting Jab We Met (2007).  The chemistry between the two pulled at the heartstrings of millions. They had given few flops but the one that remains with the audience is Jab We Met. They did reunite for Udta Punjab but wasn’t paired opposite each other.

Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone

Kapoor & Padukone are undoubtedly Bollywood’s best on-screen couple. Once real life couple too has kept all everything in the past and moved on to keeping a healthy & friendly connection now. The duo appeared in Bachna Ae Haseeno for the first time together. Both these actors together have given some really good films to their audience. Fans cannot get enough of these two sharing the same screen space.

Duo catapulted into stardom with Qayamat se qayamat tak, and ever since have been favorite for a lot of people. One cannot miss the innocent charm exuded out of this on-screen pair!

These were some of the few on-screen couples that have given us some cult classics. Share which one is your favorite.

Fashion and Bollywood movies go hand in hand. Whenever we watch our favorite actresses wearing a stylish outfit or donning a unique piece of accessory, we start imagining ourselves into them. And very soon those outfits and accessories end up becoming a part of our wardrobe. After all, no one is untouched by the glitz and glamor of Bollywood stars.

In the past, many actresses have set major fashion trends by adopting a particular look for their movies. These fashion trends became quite popular among girls or ladies and a few of them have even made a comeback as well.

Here is a list of popular fashion trends set by the 90s Bollywood movies.

  1. Headbands

The famous colored headbands were the most glorious accessories that came in trend after the release of blockbuster Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The headbands added to the tomboy character of Kajol in the movie that became the choice of every school and college going girl back in 90’s.

  1. High Waist Jeans

From Urmila and Karisma to Raveena and Kajol, every other actress rocked high-waist jeans in the era of 90’s. They were cool, comfy, and chic and undoubtedly a better alternative to regular denim. These sexy high-waist jeans keep coming back in the fashion that usually makes one look leaner and taller.

  1. Mini Skirts

We have seen Karisma, Urmila, and Rani donning miniskirts in most of all their movies in 90’s that made them look cute and sexy at the same time. In fact, these skirts used to be the staple outfit of girls in that era for every party, outing, or dates.

  1. Denim Shirts

Urmila actually showed us in 90’s how to wear denim shirts the right way. Remember her look from Rangeela- the denim shirt with high-waist jeans. She aced the look completely. And that’s how denim shirts became an important item in every girl’s wardrobe back in 90’s.

  1. Athleisure

The trend of sexy athleisure started in Bollywood with the movie Dil to Pagal Hai and eventually ended up coming every day’s sportswear. We often see celebrities sporting this look for their workout session.

  1. Chiffon Sarees

Sri Devi set a trend of ‘Chiffon Sarees’ in Bollywood, which was gracefully carried forward by Madhuri Dixit in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Raveena Tandon in Mohra. These lovely ladies looked amazingly beautiful in the avatar and inspired millions of Indian women to opt for this traditional Indian outfit on special occasions.

  1. Velvet Outfits

The velvet outfits were a huge HIT among Bollywood actresses back in the era of 90’s. For the record, Karisma nailed the velvet outfit look like a pro in her blockbusters Dil to Pagal Hai and Dulhan Hum Lejayenge.

  1. Off Shoulder Tops

The off-shoulder trend is quite popular among girls nowadays. But it made its way in Hollywood quite back in the 90’s. We saw Madhuri Dixit flaunting off-shoulder top in the movie Raja and Juhi Chawla looking cute as a button in them in the movie, Ishq.

  1. Halter Neck Tops

The vintage halter neck tops were a rage among actresses back in the 90’s. They were perfect to wear on hot summer days and keep your fashion on point. An ideal outfit that works for all body types and showcases toned shoulders in the best way.

  1. Crop Tops

The crop tops had their major moment in the 90’s. The actresses would flaunt their toned midriff in these easy breezy tops that all the women welcomed in their wardrobe in that era. From Rani Mukherjee in KKHH and Karisma in DTPH to Raveena Tandon and Shilpa Shetty, every actress paired crop tops with jeans and skirts in almost all 90’s Bollywood movies.

  1. Chokers

The first thing that strikes in our mind about chokers- the return of 90’s. Chokers were a rage in 90’s and way before that. Almost every Bollywood actress has been seen sporting this accessory in 90’s Bollywood movies, be it Madhuri Dixit, Raveena Tandon, Karisma, and Zeenat Aman way before everyone else.

  1. Backpacks

Yes, that remind us of Rani Mukherjee’s college-going girl look from KKHH. The super chic and cute backpacks looked super stylish on her. This accessory became an important part of every girl’s wardrobe in the era of the 90’s, which is back in trend again.

  1. Royal Lehengas

Should we thank Sanjay Leela Bhansali for introducing us to the world of royal Lehengas in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam? Or should we appreciate Aishwarya for looking like a dream in them? Those dreamy royal Lehengas became the first choice of girls for every family occasion and helped them live their fantasies.

The year was 1994 and the date was 15th April. The world saw the release of 1942: A Love Story – a Hindi language movie directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. With a runtime of 157 minutes, this movie went on to make INR 896.4 million. The soulful songs scored by R.D. Burman still run fresh in the minds and hearts of people. It won 9 prestigious Filmfare Awards. A story written by Kamna Chandra and later developed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra & Sanjay Leela Bhansali was made on a tight budget and no one had any idea that they were in the process of making a movie that will be fondly remembered even after 25 years.

Some Interesting Trivia
  1. Once, Mr. Chopra shared a trivia that he was not so rich and so he had to reject many building plans for the set made by Nitin Desai. So, Jackie Shroff came to rescue and lend some money to him.
  2. Another trivia is that Madhuri Dixit was approached to play the iconic Rajjo or Rajeshwari in the movie. She even did a screen test but as they say “daane daane pe likkha hai khaane wale ka naam” – the role landed in the lap of Manisha Koirala.
  3. This movie was R.D. Burman’s last Hindi movie. He died in January and this movie released in April. What a way to finish an innings!!! Many say that this was perhaps Burmans best work. Mr. Chopra rejected many tunes of Rahul Dev Burman before he came up with the masterpiece ones.
Reasons behind Its Eternal Success
Love for Freedom

Love stories have always been a favorite genre for Bollywood and the movie buffs. The title of the movie claims that it is a love story. But the opening scene says a lot more. It shows that someone from the influential family is going to be hanged for his patriotic outburst. That’s the point where you understand that this movie is definitely more than just a man-woman love story. The love for the freedom of the nation here goes simultaneously with a boy-girl love story. There are many movies which have been done on this topic but none has been this good. Kamna Chandra – the writer of this movie actually experienced those burning times and that’s why the script was so true.

The Sensation of First Love

Who doesn’t love the sensation of love? This movie celebrates the passion and innocence of that “first love”. Again that was the time when love was not so fast. Love took time to arrive. After arrival, it took time to cook and then served. There is loyalty, faith, and unflinching confidence in that other person. Naren & Rajjo were like that who looked out for each other without knowing much details about each other. They perhaps felt the soul connection quite strongly to flow in the romance! Compare it with any current time love story and you would know the difference.

Lyrics & Music

One of the strongest pillars of the success of this movie is that heart-warming music backed brilliantly by sensible lyrics. In some stories, you would hear that Javed Akhtar wrote the lyrics of Ek Ladki imagining Madhuri Dixit as she was the first choice for the role. In other stories, you may hear, Javed Akhtar imagined Shabana Azmi – his real-life muse and wife. But actually, Javed Sahab says, the inspiration is “terror of deadline”. When R.D. Burman asked him right at the studio about the lyrics, he penned these words right there. That’s unbelievable creativity!!

Imagine, lyrics that still forms a popular way of the proposal was written in such haste?! Many surveys say that this is the best album of Bollywood in the 20th Century. There was no title song but all the 8 songs were chartbusters. Burman has the story clear in his mind and he infused that haunting “ tu run a tu run a” tune into Pyar Hua Chupke Se – a song where Rajjo celebrates her “being in love” but she is reminded that the time is challenging. Kumar Sanu & Kavita Krishnamurthy sang all the songs and it seems like their voice were the blood circulation system of this movie.

Visually Stunning

Binod Pradhan – this man is a magician. He shot this movie to utter brilliance. He makes actors look more interesting and intense. Binod Pradhan has shot maximum VVC and Bhansali movies and now you know why movies like Devdas, Mission Kashmir, or Parinda were visually stunning. His camera falls in love with every actor beautifully. Remember that projection of sky, clouds, and lush meadows in the song Pyar Hua Chupke Se? It reflected our Indian Flag colors – first of its kind!

Adding to that was Nitin Chandrakant Desai’s perfect set design. If you remember the opulence, grandeur, and truthfulness of the world of movies like Lagaan, Salaam Bombay, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, Jodhaa Akbar, or Ishqiya – then you know what I am referring to. The set of a movie is the platform on which makes other departments show their brilliance. That’s why the set or production design has to be impeccable.

So, if Binod Pradhan’s camera work was flawless, then, Nitin Desai’s artwork was also notable. A major part of Dalhousie was created in Film city and you never had a doubt that it is Mumbai and not Dalhousie – that’s the victory of both these stalwarts.

Remember The Poster?

I am in love with this poster. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, one of the writers, distributors, and assistant directors of this movie later revamped it into his “Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela”. The kissing couple standing over a cracked mountain. Those cracked rocks carry the faces of the other parallel actors from the movie. No better way to describe a movie – love in not so favorable times!

Dharma production’s a blockbuster hit in the year 2001, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, is a rollercoaster ride of emotions. With a famous star cast, this movie is one cinematic art you cannot ignore. People have hated it, loved it but haven’t been successfully able to ignore it. K3G completes its 17 years of existence in the Indian cinema. And we still love it, for all the right reasons. This blog includes 8 insanely famous and loved dialogues for you to understand the gist of the movie. Well, we all have seen, maybe in bits & pieces, or someone like me who’s watched it time n again; cannot stop dancing to ever-so melodious “Deewana hain dekho…” or “Bole Chhudiyan…” Deep down your heart, even you love it. Admit it now!

Let’s hit the rollercoaster through the famous dialogues:

  1. “Kabhi aisa kyun hota hai ki apne paraye ho jate hain…”

Of course we know this and agree too. If you’re coming from an Indian middle-class family we have an extended-chosen family that was initially our family friends but over time we realize it’s the chosen ones that have our heart.

One reason to love this movie, how they showed the difference between the Raichand(s) and Sharma(s). It’s crazy that both the dads in the respective families shared the same birthday and their children fell in over a “Gamla” incident.

  1. “Arey return sheturn karna hain toh khareedte wareedte kyun hain?”

Hashtag True story! Who doesn’t love our evergreen Kajol’s character? And her quirky dialogues with her Chandni Chowk influenced Punjabi accent. Just another reason to love K3G is the amalgam of characters and how they merged the nuances of two typical families, one from the elites and the other…well Mithai ki dukan wale.

  1. No drinking, no smoking….no der se aana aur yahan se jitni jaldi ho chale jana”

King Khan gives us one more reason to love this movie because of his (Rahul Raichand’s) nature showcased in the movie. In the beginning, the playful elder brother and later on protective brother-in-law to someone who we drool for! (You’ll see later). The scenes between Rahul and his sister-in-law are adorable. We can all relate if we were to have such a diva in our family, Protective hona banta hain!

  1. Tell me how it was”

Trust me, even reading this dialogue gives me immense excitement and happiness because of Kareen Kapoor (Pooja Sharma a.k.a Poo) nails it like no other. It seems like she was born for being the Poo for K3G. Her accent, her diva lifestyle, pickiness about guys, everything makes me or everyone for that matter swoon for her character. K3G gave us Poo, we don’t any more reasons to love it, but we do have a list!

  1. Keh diya na? Bas keh diya…”

When there’s Shahenshah in a movie and you’re finding reasons to love it? Shame on you! (Not literally) Shri Amitabh Bachchan’s character, Yashvardhan Raichand, is every elite dad we guess. He’s cool until everything’s happening that he approves of. But loses his shit and damn how he expresses it! (We guess that’s every dad ever?) The authoritative, poised, dedicated-man that he plays is another reason because he’s The Shahenshah! We love his acting. We have to love K3G! And especially when he’s paired opposite his real-life partner, Jaya Bachchan. The duo is loved for their chemistry. There were perfect aww moments when she gets on the stool to match his height but when the angry young man gets angry, we didn’t like it (imagine a puppy face).

The pair is an absolute treat to watch!

  1. Bade Mazaaki ho, bade mazaaki ho”

Did we mention Kajol earlier? Yes, we did! But what can we do she played the best Anjali ever! The incident when Rahul goes to her mithai ki dukaan to hand over Daijaan (Farida Jalal, yet another legend that we abso-freakin-lutely love.) and Anjali mistakenly recognizes him as Ashfaq Miya. The mischievous nature of Kajol’s character makes our heart giggle even after 17 years of the film.

  1. Maafi maangne se koi chota bada nahi hota…aur jo maaf kar deta hain uska dil bahut bada hota hai”

ShahRukh Khan inspiring us with such dialogues! Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham teaches us some legit life lessons in the most unapologetically amazing manner. Another dialogue from this epic film is here, “Zindagi mein agar kuch banna ho, kuch haasil karna ho, kuch jeetna ho, toh hamesha dil ki suno. Aur agar dil bhi koi jawab na de toh aankhein band karke apni maa aur papa ka naam lo…phir dekhna har mushkil aasan ho jayegi…jeet tumahri hogi…sirf tumhari!”

Hrithik Roshan (Rohan Raichand) comes out (not that) to Shahrukh’s family in London when he teaches Rahul’s kid, Rishi, this mantra which he learned from Shahrukh Khan, his elder brother. Hrithik’s character was a fat-binging-on-ladoo kid turned hot-shot. And if he’s hot, how can he not charm his childhood sweetheart (Kareena Kapoor) with his tongue twister. Another pairing that we loved and vouch for. With such heartfelt dialogues from Hrithik and his attempts to get Father-Son duo to get along is inspiring. Why can’t we learn from movies to forgive and let go because there’s nothing above family!

  1. Kabhi kabhi ghar ke bache…ghar ke badon ko sahi raasta dikha dete hain”

Yes, and like a boss! JK. Don’t try this at home or you might receive a flying chappal! (Tryna’ be cool)

The motto of this movie is A. Family’s everything.

  1. There’s nothing wrong or right in love.
  2. Parents can be wrong too!
  3. It’s all about loving our parents even if they’re wrong.

This iconic 3.5 hours long sob-session is everything but love. The family-romantic-Blah-blah-blah drama showcases the high-class Indian family with swanky cars & luxurious lifestyle is the epitome of KJo’s family fantasy. These aren’t the only reasons to love this family drama, as quoted by Dharma Production.

“It’s the fine blend of laughter, entertainment, chartbusting music, unforgettable camaraderie & lots of love” that makes the movie acknowledged & loved by many. With merits, this also has some demerits too. There are a few reasons that aren’t acceptable but its KJo. After Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, we know he loves the love story to thrive after 360-degree transformation of either of his characters. Hands down, this ott drama is love and we can watch it time n again.

They say Bollywood movies are too much overly dramatic. That isn’t entirely true! Bollywood movies do have drama and masala but, that is what makes them different. You might not agree but, you do take guilty pleasure of watching regulars like Sooryavansham & No Entry repeatedly! You don’t really have to lie here because we all do watch these movies. Why do we watch these masala movies anyway? Because after a busy day of brainstorming, we wish to mitigate the tension in our brains and watch something to relax. We often miss out on some really good movies because of this. Here is a list of must-watch Underrated Bollywood Movies:

15 Park Avenue (2005)

Laila suffering from cerebral palsy and yet has the courage to live in New York all by herself. She is on a journey of self-discovery and explores her sexuality.

  • Love it how Laila’s parents respect her decision to move to New York and don’t go all overprotective.
  • The movie is not just limited to disability but exploring sexuality. While Bollywood still uses it as an element of humor, Shonali Bose illustrated the actual side of the story.
  • The movie is also about a strong mother-daughter bond. A bond so strong that you wouldn’t be able to resist crying.
  • Self Love, Self Acceptance, & Self Discovery!

You must watch this movie! Margarita with a Straw is a truly impeccable movie and will leave you teary-eyed.

Qarib Qarib Singlle (2017)

Directed by Tanuja Chandra, Qarib Qarib Singlle has a really unique storyline. It is a contemporary love story between two opposites who meet on an online dating platform. Jaya played by Parvathy meets Yogi played by Irrfan Khan. They embark a journey to the past and end up falling for each other.

Major Reasons to Watch
  • The movie portrays Jaya as the confident next door girl who has a successful career and does not need a man to complete her. She lives the way she wishes to! Ladies, isn’t she the goals?
  • It shows us a new side of online dating. The only thing we know about online dating is swiping left & right for hookups. After watching this movie you realize that if you are willing to know someone, you can actually meet someone really interesting.
  • Watching this movie you realize how important it is to live in the present. There is a thin line between having memories from the past & living in the past. If you wish to find happiness, you need to let go of the past.
  • Age is no bar when it comes to dating! Everyone with a peanut size brain out there, don’t start with your haaaaaawwwws when you come across someone dating and getting to know that they have crossed the marriageable age prescribed by “Chaar Log” or “Samaaj”(Society!)

It wasn’t a hit but I wonder why? Oh, wait, because the notion of dating is unapproved in India!

Angry Indian Goddess (2015)

India needed this movie! Although it wasn’t really appreciated by the audience and was highly underrated, it was definitely an eye-opener! Directed by Pan Nalin, this movie shows the strong side of female friendship and their struggle to be heard in this male dominant society.

Major Reasons to Watch:
  • Frieda, played by Sarah-Jane Dias, the character was calm all the time, looking at her you will get to know how one should stay calm and get things done! Even if it is against the rules of society
  • Nargis, played by Tannishtha Chatterjee! Well, her character in the movie tells us how one can take small initiatives in their life to make the world a better place.
  • Madhurita, played by Anushka Manchanda taught us how to deal with depression like a “BAWSE”. You’ll learn how it is absolutely fine to feel like giving up!

  • Aren’t all these women your favorites already?
  • Oh yes, there is another reason, the amazing music! My favorite is “Zindagi”!

This movie is about fighting stereotypes & taking a stand for people around us! The movie didn’t reach many people because hawww, ye ladkiya toh Goa me party kar rahi h, kitni besharam h kind of mentality! Ps. If you have a peanut sized brain, do not watch this movie!’

Finding Fanny (2014)
Finding Fanny

Starring actors like Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor & Pankaj Kapoor, one would expect this movie to not be a hit! All these big Bollywood names were associated with this movie, it still did not get the recognition it should have. The movie is about 5 people living in Pocolim, a small village in Goa, Namely- Ferdie, Angie, Don Pedro, Savio, & Lady Rosalina on a long road trying to find Fanny. Fanny is Ferdie’s lost love and, he has been in love with her for 46 years!

Major Reasons to Watch:
  • It illustrates how every good deed one does has a selfish motive behind it.
  • While Ferdie’s friends accompanied him to find the love of his life, they actually were trying to find hope in their own life!
  • How India forbids widows to live their lives. No matter what part of the country you live in, it absolutely wrong to think about an amorous relationship for a young lady if she is a widow.
  • It is a story of self-discovery! How one may think that they know themselves and later on discover things they have been ignorant about.
  • Acceptance! We often forget to accept things about ourselves. We learn that true happiness is when one accepts their own flaws.

Finding Fanny is more like a play wherein you lose yourself. It is mesmerizing if you are willing to watch it with an open mind. It is a relatable quest of finding happiness!

So, you know what you’re doing this weekend! Some of these beautiful movies go unnoticed, and then we may find ourselves complaining that Bollywood movies make no sense, yet find ourselves binge-watching these futile movies, over and again!

I was randomly fiddling on my phone and so came across this Netflix movie “Love per square foot”, found this cutie really charming on the poster. I decided to watch but little did I know this cutie was a bomb of talent. After I finished watching the movie, I was pretty impressed with his acting and Googled him (Well, the rituals you see!). There he was…

Pretty honestly, ladies were getting bored of all the Khan’s & Kapoor’s trying to fit into our “Man Crush” list. After Ranveer Singh & Ayushman Kkhurana, Vicky Kaushal came in like a breath of fresh air making all of us women feel the global-warming a little too much. This man in Netflix’s original Lust Stories, paired with Kiara Advani, shot this steamy scene and what a bummer when he got wasted way too early. The character was sensitive & it came across well to the young audience. I was glad to not see another male boasting his manly hood on his woman because he couldn’t “finish”. This quirky film had Vicky on a roll. Paras (Vicky Kaushal in Lust Stories) was still loved because the film felt way too real! *wink*

Zubaan, Masaan & Raman Raghav 2.0

He was also a part of an Indian film that didn’t do well in India but opened the 20th edition of Busan International Film Festival. The name of his character was Dilsher and the movie was Zubaan. The movie is about a boy who was bullied in his childhood and grew up aspiring to become a singer but was nervous to achieve, you must watch it to witness this man’s immense talent working his magic. He even justified his dark & bold character in Raman Raghav 2.0. Vicky proved he can play a drug-addict as easy as he could play a young college student in Masaan.

Raazi, Sanju & Uri

The nation’s crush was next seen opposite Alia Bhatt, in one of his biggest hit Raazi. The man was “Suave”! Vicky not only looked jaw-droppingly handsome but pulling off such a sensitive & serious character of a Pakistani Army Officer was commendable! Every bit of his acting was loved by the audience and hence, the biggest hit. Adding, Sanju & Uri in his blockbuster hits, he is unstoppable!

Just when he was becoming a sensation, Sanju made an entry to 70mm silver screen. Oh boy, Ranbir alone was not enough for all the “Too-Hot-To-Handle” quotient? Sanjay Dutt’s biopic was oozing out talent in heaps. With the cast that had Paresh Rawal, Ranbir Kapoor as the heart of the film. Vicky Kaushal was undeniably the soul!

Manmarziyaan

The man was a delight to watch in Manmarziyaan. An unstable, struggling Dj and seen enjoying his courtship with Taapsee Pannu. His choices of Tshirt paired with his hair dyed in blue color was weirdly refreshing.

Vicky Kaushal has 7 characters in his bag and how he justifies each one is truly a delight to witness. You just cannot help looking at this talented human. Oh, here’s a heart-breaker for all the ladies, the man is dating Harleen Sethi currently. We can blame his smile, it literally can melt your heart! What a charmer, isn’t he?

Sara Ali Khan, the eldest daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh is the new star kid in B-Town who has created a sensation on the silver screen with her stellar performance in her debut movie Kedarnath. And her terrific dance moves in popular song ‘Aankh Maare’ from movie Simmba are goals. Apart from being extremely beautiful, her acting skills are praiseworthy. The way she carries herself in front of the camera even being a newcomer is a real treat to watch. Unlike other star kids, she has no qualms about accepting that nepotism does exist in the film industry.

Have a look at the qualities that make Sara Ali Khan a delight to watch on silver screen.

She Is a Natural Beauty

You cannot simply ignore Sara Ali Khan when she walks and talks on screen. Call it the genetic factor or her charming personality, she is one of the natural beauties of the film industry who doesn’t require layers of makeup to shine like a star. The perfect blend of beauty and brains. Her amazing weight loss journey from 96 kgs to 52 kgs is applauding that makes her look all the more gorgeous. Sara Ali Khan’s transformation is inspiring for all of us and giving us major fitness goals.

Supremely Talented

Sara Ali Khan delivered more in her first movie that could be expected from a debutante. She looked no less than a seasoned actress in Kedarnath. Be it her dance moves in the song ‘Sweetheart’ or her notable act in the movie, she looked promising with utmost confidence and tight grip over her character. Even the renowned Bollywood superstars, film directors, and critics have appreciated her acting skills in the movie Kedarnath and believe that she is definitely going to make a big impact in the film industry.

Stands True To Her Character

When you watch Sara Ali Khan on the big screen, she is not just an actress playing her part. She very much becomes the character that she is portraying and does full justice to it. While she is delivering her performance on-screen, you want her to keep going and never stop. Her beautiful and expressive eyes deliver the emotions smoothly and you are left with no other option than to fall in love with her both on-screen and off-screen.

The Bundle of Energy

Calling her the female version of Ranveer Singh wouldn’t be wrong. She is so full of energy all the time while staying true to herself. In all her recent interviews and movie promotions, she is winning the heart of the audience with her bindass personality. Her quirky replies to interview questions, carefree attitude, and the ease to speak her heart out is very rare to watch nowadays among the Bollywood actresses.                     

A True Fashion Icon

Apart from being the girl of the moment, Sara Ali Khan is a true fashion icon. And she has proved that time and again. Be it the movie promotions, Bollywood weddings, or birthday celebrations, she manages to look gorgeous in every outfit that she dons with utmost grace and perfection. As charming as she looks in a simple white kurta-salwar, she does full justice to the glamorous western outfits as well. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that stunning looks and amazing dressing style add up to her graceful personality. For which she has always been in talks.

We really hope to see more of Sara Ali Khan’s supreme talent in the upcoming movies and wish her all the best for a glorious film career ahead!
