If you are a Bollywood buff with a penchant for filmypanti, we wouldn’t be surprised if you love the rains and the monsoon season! After all, it is the weather that is associated with ‘ishq’ and ‘pyaar’ in every Bollywood film. But just one reality check and you may realize that it is quite different from the ones that are shown in films and that you had rather spend time cozying up indoors and may be binge watch on series or films. So here’s a small list that we have compiled for all those who like to spend their monsoons with some interesting rom-coms for company.
While the usual evergreen classics like DDLJ, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Jab We Met amongst others don’t make it to the list, here’s a list of some other refreshing, youthful and fun tales of love that will leave you with a smile!
Love Aaj Kal
Jaane Tu…. Ya Jaane Na!
Best friends falling in love is always a cliché! But Jaane Tu…. Ya Jaane Na, despite all its usual masala, is a fun-loving romantic story with interesting characters, unconventional parents intertwined with a beautiful narrative of two confused souls caught between emotions of love and friendship. This debut of Imran Khan is worth watching once if you are a rom-com fan!
Socha Na Tha
There is a reason why there are two Imtiaz Ali films in this list! Well, the filmmaker has indeed created some timeless classics when it comes to romance! And it has the usual Imtiaz style of twist! The tagline of the film is ‘Sab chahte ki shaadi karle, phir bhi bhaag gaye’ [Everyone wanted the two to get married yet they eloped]! One of the most underrated films, this Abhay Deol, Ayesha Takia film is a coming off age romantic comedy that will definitely make you go ‘aww’!
Band Baaja Baarat
Tanu Weds Manu
The concept of a bold and beautiful woman falling in love with a simple man is beautifully explored in this fun romantic drama that kicks off with an arranged marriage setup. R Madhavan as the simple guy and Kangana Ranaut as the bold and beautiful, this refreshing pair will definitely make you laugh and cry with them! Worth watching for a brilliant performance by Kangana.
I Hate Luv Storys
Wake Up Sid
While this film is known for the way it captures the city of Mumbai, which we know is undoubtedly beautiful, it also explores the much unconventional relationship of a younger boy and an older woman. However, without making it look cringy or otherwise, this film has a unique charm and the portrayal of the journey of Aisha and Sid [the lead characters] is worth appreciating! Youthful peppered with some happy and sad moments, Wake Up Sid is what you need to watch asap, if you haven’t seen the film till now! And interestingly, the onset of monsoons plays an interesting role in it.
