Valentine’s Day is almost here, and wherever you go, you’re bound to be surrounded by hearts and lovey-dovey couples. It’s a nightmare being alone on this day. Even if you avoid stepping out, and decide to enjoy the comfort of your television, you’re bound to be disappointed. Because on this day, all you see on TV is romantic movies, and everything else … ‘love’.
But do not throw the remote at your TV in frustration yet. You’ll just be left with a broken set that is too expensive to fix. Instead, take a calm breath, keep the faith, and watch the movies listed below. These movies actually will make you feel better on Valentine’s Day, as they help you realize that being single is not so bad. There other relationships in life that are more valuable, and that’s what you need to embrace this V-Day. Take a look:
Love your life, follow your dreams and enjoy to the fullest extent – that’s exactly what Dear Zindagi is about. If you haven’t seen the movie already, this Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to watch it. Kaira (Alia Bhatt) and her struggles with love, life and relationships are perfectly relatable, and will make you feel much better about yourself.
You do not need a guy by your side, even in the most difficult times. Kangana Ranaut’s character is the one to draw inspiration from this V-Day. After being dumped a few days before her wedding, Rani (Ranaut) goes on her honeymoon to Europe all by herself. The relationships that form during her stay there leave you with bittersweet emotions.
This Karan Johar movie is an ideal watch for people who are single. While KJo himself said that the film is about unrequited love, we feel it goes much deeper. Not all friendships need to turn into relationships, and this movie proves just that. So this Valentine’s Day, forget your heartaches and heartbreaks, and find your Ayan, or your Alizeh!
Another movie on how every friendship does not have to turn into a relationship, this movie discusses the ‘friendzone’. The movie stars Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor, and explores their characters’ unique friendship. Imran eventually does fall in love with Kareena, but unlike a typical Bollywood movie, Kareena does not give in. No lovey-dovey ending makes for a perfect V-Day watch!
Some relationships are better than love, and those relationships are that of blood. This Valentine’s Day, spend time with your family, and catch this hilarious comedy about Piku and her struggles of dealing with a stubborn parent. You will totally relate to the characters, and Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan’s performances are worth a watch.
This decade-and-a-half old comedy drama dealt with love, while focusing on the friendship among three guys. Sure, the guys end up married, or with girlfriends, or find someone, but the ups and downs their friendship goes through is what makes this movie so great. Besides, the star trio of Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan do not disappoint.
