Shoojit Sircar’s Piku is an unusual movie that is so relatable. It shows the sweet and lovely chemistry of a father-daughter relationship played by Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone.

While watching Piku, there will always remain a light smile on your face. A single working daughter Piku, lives with her 70 year-old-father Bhaskor Banerji in CR park in Delhi.

Piku’s life revolves around taking care of her father’s medicine, blood pressure, and listening to all his childish tantrums. She doesn’t hang out much either; does she have a romantic life. 

The story feels real. If you are a daughter, you will surely feel this like I do whenever I watch this film.

The film is all about the spontaneous dialogues of Amitabh; especially his fluctuate Bengali accent. I loved his flawed Bengali accent. I am a Bengali, maybe that’s the reason why I feel so relatable.

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was a box office superhit film under Yash Raj Banner in 2008. Usually, all the love stories start with how they meet, then love sparks between them; some troubles come between and then end with a marriage.

But here, in the story, it’s the opposite. Surinder is a simple man who marries Tani (Anushka Sharma) and falls in love with her. But does she love him back?

The movie won’t make you feel sympathetic towards Suri; instead, Suri-turned-Rocking Raj makes you laugh and cherish the Raj-Tani Jodi.

The film has a beautiful love story, ear-pleasing songs, enjoyable acting and some light-moments makes this a feel good Bollywood film to watch.

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan

2011 Bollywood romantic-comedy-drama film ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ is fun to watch that has some sparkling performances.

Kush chooses Dimple, who has a rocking personality, and eventually, he fell for her.

Although it has a familiar premise, Nikhil who is getting married to his long-time girlfriend but fell in love with her nerdy sister Meeta.

It has no extraordinary story or uniqueness, but the subtle humor and light romance will make you feel for both the lovers.

While watching the film, somewhere, you could connect with the story and characters at some moments.

I won’t say it is a magical film, but definitely, it has a feel good factor.

It is Bollywood’s one of the most famous dialogue, and it is from the 2007 Farah Khan’s directorial film ‘Om Shanti Om.’ It was a massive hit, and it is also the debut film of Deepika Padukone.

With a 7.6 rating in IMDB, ‘Stree’ is a Bollywood comedy-horror film that has a constant laugh and thrill. Despite its flaws, it is an enjoyable film to watch with family.

Some moments will give you goosebumps with fear. On the other hand, the magnificent performance of Rajkumar Rao keeps you interested throughout the movie.

Bollywood perhaps never made a film that is a combination of horror-comedy and executed so well.

If you see the Rotten Tomatoes audience score, it is 80%, which means highly likable.

The honest contribution of the entire cast has made this film one of the best modern suspense-thriller movies too.

Stanley ka Dabba (YouTube)

Amole Gupte’s extraordinary film ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’ is a heart-warming film to watch.

While watching the movie, it took me back to my primary school days, where I, along with my buddies, used to sit around the table and share each other’s tiffin.

The little Stanley is a precious kid; the way he performed is genuinely pure and gave an innocent performance. No matter how old you are now, watching Stanley ka Dabba is worth your time and a soul-filling movie.

Also, it is one of the most underrated Bollywood films.

Golmaal (1979) (Amazon Prime Videos)

Another one of my all-time favorite Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s film, ‘Golmaal’ is considered as the best film in the comedy genre of Indian cinema.

Golmaal is a laughter-riot. Amol Palekar as Ramprasad Sharma leading a double life because he told a lie to his boss Bhawani Shankar played by Utpal Dutt to save his job.

The humor of this film is situational; you won’t find any incessant jokes. The comedy comes through the character’s error and situational behavior.

The comic timing between Utpal and Amol Palekar is graceful and natural. There isn’t any scene that doesn’t provoke you to giggle or laugh.

I would say watching Golmaal on Amazon Prime Videos would be the best way to kill your deprived mood in this lockdown at home.
