It’s one of those days, where you just want to sit back in your favourite, comfy couch, surrounded by pillows with a mug of tea (or coffee or whatever rocks your boat). You have an inner debate if you want to settle down with the novel you can’t seem to finish reading or feast your eyes with a movie made for lazy days. I of course went with the movie option.
The next tough part was to decide what genre? I don’t have specific genres that I love or hate (I’m easy to please) but it definitely depends on my mood and my mood said that it wanted a soul comforting movie. You know, the ones that’s got happy moments, the close knit friends, a dysfunctional family maybe, a confused protagonist, love triangles and then thrown in a wedding etc.
There are many movies in Hollywood similar to the slice of life category (mostly been rom/coms). Movies like Silver Linings Playbook, Only You and The Hundred Foot Journey being some of them. But not many Bollywood movies fall under such a category. It’s either action/romance, comedy/romance, thriller/romance, horror/romance (they always make sure to add romance no matter what).
Anyways, you get the point.
So I thought of putting up a list of movies that suits the “relax your mind” mood. Movies that you just watch to adore the relationships, enjoy the ups and downs of life, to feel the excitement of celebrations and to give you a little pick me up for a blue mood.
They are not listed in any particular order, also I have add the links to their relevant imdb page if any of u want to check the plot and ratings, so here we go:
Jab We Met
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Dil Chahta Hai
Wake Up Sid
Socha Na Tha
Love Breakups Zindagi
