by chandra joshi i m blogger

The countrywide lockdown, which has been for months now, has completely changed our day to day living. The concept of weekends has almost disappeared as most of us are spending time with our families and working from home. While there are some who are finding it challenging to maintain a work-life balance, there are others who are trying their best to cope up with stress and anxiety. Our Bollywood movies can provide much-needed respite during this time. So here we list down some feel-good movies that will cheer you up, make you feel happy and help you detach from the lockdown for some time:

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara: This movie by Zoya Akhtar celebrates friendship like never before. The narrative of the movie is simple and revolves around three male protagonists who are on a trip together to Spain. The movie is a merry ride with loads of fun, thrill, romance, emotional banter between the lead characters. Though it had an immense scope of melodrama, the movie remains lighthearted and subtle throughout. This multi-starrer is a treat to watch with amazing performances by Hritik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif, Kalki Koechlin and Suhel Seth. It redefines aspects of love, friendship, and ambition. Watch it now if you haven't already.  
 
English Vinglish: Written and directed by ace filmmaker Gauri Shinde, this film beautifully shows the transformation of a gentle, quiet, and submissive Indian wife into a confident lady. Shashi, the main character played by the very talented Sridevi, is a perfect homemaker and mother but her only handicap is English. She realizes that her inability to speak English is holding her back and it is then that she joins an English speaking course to conquer her fears, insecurities, and conflicts. The movie gives an important lesson on how we are judgmental about people who cannot speak a certain language. Sridevi's performance is the backbone of the movie and is worth applauding. Effortlessly conveying emotions like anxiety, arrogance, attraction, and anger, this movie is a delight to watch.    

Dil Chahta Hai: This is certainly one of the most entertaining movies of Bollywood. The superhit flick revolves around three inseparable friends (with distinct characters) who are just out of college and their relationships with each other. Written and directed by Farhan Akhtar, this movie strikes a chord with every youth. The best part about the movie is that it has the potential to look fresh and young even after years of its release. It is full of entertainment, comedy, emotion, and drama. The performance by the leading star cast, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Preity Zinta, and Dimple Kapadia is just brilliant which makes this movie worth watching, especially in this lockdown period. It will cheer you up and clear your lockdown blues.
