Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara  

This one gives freshness to life itself. It has comedy, it is about travel, friends, reunion and of course a beautiful love story at the centre. Javed saab and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy gave the joy of their poetry and music. For me, the movie is wholly entertaining, I don’t care about what I take back from it.

3 Idiots

3 idiots

This movie brings out positivity in you. I love all Rajkumar Hirani’s films and my favourite scene from this film is when Chatur reads the letter... comedy loses its essence after a few times, but this one is so brilliantly shot that even when you watch it many times, you find there is still some humour hidden in it. 3 Idiots is something I don’t mind revisiting multiple times.

Safe House

Safe House

I am a huge fan of action thrillers and there are many I have seen, but as a big fan of Denzel Washington, I caught up with Safe House during the lockdown and enjoyed it. Even the music by Ramin Djawad is so beautiful and the story, is very captivating.

Welcome

Welcome

I would have seen Welcome some 15-20 times and love watching it again. For me, films become favourites when I watch them again and again. This film is a favourite also because my daughter used to love watching this film...she did not understand at that point probably but she used to watch. Even now we all watch this film as a family and we know the scenes and dialogues by heart.

Satte pe satta

Satte pe Satta

It brings back childhood memories. Apart from the fact that this movie has comedy, action and the legendary icon Amitabh Bachchan ji and Hema Malini ji, for me, the songs ‘Dilbar Mere’ and ‘Pyar Hamein Kis Mod Pe...’ had a strong impact. I would always repeat ‘Hai’ at the line ‘Ke dil kare haye…’ Those days families were full of brothers and sisters and there was some reliability even from that angle.
