Road trip Movies that will Remain etched in our Memories forever.Nov 21, 2018
Road trips are always a lot of fun. There is something about long journeys with loved ones that make us feel at home even while we are going far away from our actual home. Magical things that seem like a distant dream seem to happen easily when we embark on a long journey. Whether the journey is for fun or whether it has a definite purpose, the saying ‘The journey is more beautiful than the destination’ becomes completely true in the case of a road trip.
Many dream of going on a road trip with friends, many dream of going with cousins or family and many dream of going with their partners. Whatever company one chooses, the dream remains the same. So, it is no surprise that life-changing road trips are a great background for many Bollywood stories on the silver screen as well. Let us take a look at some such films that we all loved.
This utterly charming film that revolved around a father-daughter relationship was truly heart-warming. The film had brilliant actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Irfan Khan and Deepika Padukone playing lead roles and focussed on a common health problem that older people suffer from. Apart from that, it also showed a beautiful chemistry between the lead pair and was a complete entertainer as well. The film received good reviews from audiences and critics alike.
Highway is a film that can make you rethink what life’s real pleasures are. The happiest moments are in the simple joys of life and this is what the film conveys. With Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda playing the lead roles, this movie is a perfect combination of a good story, amazing performances and an engaging narrative. As the lead pair goes through a one-of-a-kind journey, the hearts of the audiences are sure to follow behind them.
Bunty Aur Babli
Though this one is not based on a typical road trip, the lead pair of the movie runs around enough to make it seem like one. This movie is about two ambitious youngsters who end up taking a not-so-legal route to becoming rich. They end up becoming famous for their scams and a cop starts to hunt for them. How the hunt turns out forms the rest of the story. Amitabh Bachchan, Abishek Bachchan and Rani Mukherji play the lead roles in the movie and the film became one of the biggest hits of the year it released in.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
ZIndagi Na Milegi Dobara is a film that is definitely on the top favourite list of all Bollywood fans. The refreshing movie is a perfect road trip story that brings together the stories of three close friends who embark on a journey together. As they go on a vacation to Spain, they also embark on a personal journey that makes them face their fears and makes them realise how beautiful life really is. With a stellar cast that includes Hrithik Roshan, Farhaan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin, the movie strums all the right chords and makes for a lovely package of all things beautiful.
This is a lesser-known film but it is also a jewel that is not to be missed by the audiences. The film is directed by Nagesh Kukunoor and revolves around the story of a brother and sister duo. The heart-warming story is about how the sister goes to any extent to fulfil her promise of giving vision to her brother before his ninth birthday. Set against the backdrop of Bollywood fan culture, this movie is a gem that truly deserved all the appreciation and rave reviews in international film festivals all over the world.
