Which Dysfunctional Filmy Family Do You Relate To?

In Bollywood, a family that stays together, laughs and cries together, and sings and dances together will stay happily ever after. But in reality, that’s far from the truth. The lockdown has made us quarantine with our families and even though we love them so much, we can’t wait to be rid of them. Never before have we fought with our loved ones so much! So if the Bollywood families of a Sooraj Barjatya film don’t make sense to you, the families listed below might be more relatable.


Piku (Deepika Padukone) was an unmarried woman who lived with her constantly grumbling father (Amitabh Bachchan). The relationship between the father-daughter duo in this movie is quite comical and you might relate Bachchan’s character to your own overbearing parents.

Dil Dhadakne Do

The Mehras easily slipped into the stereotype of being the rich Punjabi family from Delhi. While the parents (Anil Kapoor & Shefali Shah) feel bitter resentment towards each other, their daughter (Priyanka Chopra) is struggling with her marriage and their son (Ranveer Singh) has fallen in love with a runaway simpleton. What’s even more relatable? No one discusses their issues openly!

Kapoor & Sons

Estranged brothers of the Kapoor family (Fawad Khan & Sidharth Malhotra) return to their hometown when their grandfather (Rishi Kapoor) suffers a heart attack. Their parents (Ratna Pathak Shah & Rajat Kapoor) do not get along and the introduction of Tia (Alia Bhatt) into their lives causes more jealousy between the brothers. Like all families, the Kapoors fight, throw tantrums, and even come to blows!

Khichdi – The Movie

Notorious for being the most dysfunctional family on TV, the Parekh parivaar took over Bollywood with Khichdi: The Movie. The family was back with more laughter and madness as a comedy of errors followed. This was the first time a movie was made based on a TV series in Bollywood. With a cast of probably some of the most talented actors ever, it is no wonder that the audience wanted to see more of their beloved characters, and their whirlwind of craziness.


Titli is the story of a boy of the same name (Shashank Arora) whose family business involves car-jacking. Unable to deal with his family’s misdeeds, Titli wants out, but he and his brothers (Ranvir Shorey & Amit Sial) are held together by the patriarch that is Daddy (Lalit Behl). Moreover, his wife Neelu (Shivani Raghuvanshi), to whom Titli was forcefully wed, wants to reunite with her lover. The story explores Titli and Neelu’s relationship and how they attempt to escape their dysfunctional family.


Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Haidar follows the story of a man of the same name (Shahid Kapoor), who returns to his hometown of Kashmir when his father goes missing. Back there, he learns that his uncle (Kay Kay Menon) and mother (Tabu) hatched an elaborate plan to have his father killed. Not exactly your normal run-of-the-mill family, is it?

These families may be crazy, but you know deep down that they’re the real deal. And in the end, they stick together, which is exactly what you need to do in these trying times. Stay home and stay safe!
