#14 Post your favorite movies that you never get tired of watching
I have a few movies that I watch time and again. They have a special meaning to me. Like songs, but longer. Here is my list of the movies that I like to whip out on certain occassions.
- Dil Dhadakne Do: I have seen this movie quite a lot. I like how real it gets at time. I like the relationship between the characters of Ranveer and Priyanka. They remind me of my brother and myself. Its a realistic modern-day family drama, with a happy ending.
- Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na: There is a story behind this one. It was I think the first year of college. It was late at night and I could not sleep. I decided to see if my friend who lived a few rooms away was up and if so we could hang out. Our rooms weren't that far, so I got up and started walking towards her room at about 3 am in the night, and to my surprise, I saw her walking towards mine at the exact same time. It was a moment for us. One that tells you, you are going to be friends for a long time. And we were. The best of friends for a long time. Ohh well, so yes, we met each other halfway in the corridor and decided to watch this movie. Since then this became a sort of a comfort movie for me, like mashed potatoes.
- Hum Saath Saath hai: Well, this was one of my guilty pleasures. But the trick is you can't really use your brain or think too much while watching this, or you will end up super annoyed. Think of this like the Dil Dhadakne Do for the previous generation. And c'mon who doesn't love a family movie!
- Dear Zindagi: A movie based in Goa with Shahrukh Khan as one of the protagonists and an idea of normalising mental health. Need I go on? Yup, I thought so. I like to watch this when I am feeling down and defeated and need to feel motivated again. When I need to remind myself that it is okay to take a break once in a while, it only makes us stronger.
A few other movies I watch occasionally include the entire Harry Potter series and anything by Shahrukh Khan.
