Happy Republic Day folks! Today India is celebrating its 65th Republic Day, and it is a National holiday! So, what are your plans for the day? I hope you’re not lamenting over the fact that a National holiday is falling on a Sunday? But of course, besides watching the parade on National Television and lazing around, there is nothing much you can do on a dry day. But if you want to spend your day in a more worthwhile yet de-stressing way, watching a movie is always a perfect idea.
So here is a list of five movies from patriotic to rom-com that you can watch. Grab your comfort food and curl up for your dose of entertainment this off day.
For some patriotic feeling
Watch this movie for the brilliant award-winning performance by Farhan Akhtar. It might be a bit lengthy movie, but what’s the hurry. Sit back, relax and enjoy a movie on one of India’s most iconic athletes – Milkha Singh – world champion and Olympian. The music composed by Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy is just superb. PS: Girls watch out for Farhan Akhtar’s drool-worthy toned body.
If you want to laugh-out-loud
Sorry can’t help it. Everyone must have watched this movie for like a zillion times, but the jokes never get old. This movie can make you laugh till your stomach hurts. Epic one-liners like "Gogo ji aapka ghagra", "Teja main hoon, mark idhar hain" still makes us laugh. Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Karishma Kapoor and Raveena Tandon never looked so cute before. Watch this movie if you want some light-hearted comedy and want to relive the old days. An instant mood-lifter.
If you want to fall in love again
"Akeli ladki khuli hui tijori ki tarah hoti hai", every Indian girl must have cited this atleast once in her life. This tender romantic-comedy is just the perfect romantic movie for any day. Shahid Kapoor as the lovelorn industrialist looked absolutely charming. Jab We Met is filled with sunshine and can make you smile even on the most gloomy day. The movie is all about road romance – how two strangers meet and fall in love. Watch this movie for the delightful chirpy-happy acting by Kareena Kapoor.
