4. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
What’s it about? Three friends (Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar) reunite to pursue their dream vacation before one of them ties the knot.
Why see it? You’ll certainly find best friends in the wacky trio of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, who will tag you along with them on a life-changing road trip across Spain – from throwing tomatoes at the La Tomatina Festival, to running away from bulls in Pamplona.
Memorable movie quote: “If you carry eagerness in your heart then you are living. If you carry dreams in your eyes then you are living. Learn to live freely like the wind; learn to flow freely like the river… Embrace every moment with open arms; see a new horizon every moment with your eyes. If you carry surprises in your eyes, then you are living. If you carry eagerness in your heart then you are living.”
3. Vicky Donor
What’s it about? Vicky (Ayushman Khurrana), a good-for-nothing man in his 20s, is hired by a fertility specialist to supply him with his sperms – a job which he chose to keep as a secret. Trouble arises when he falls in love with Ashima (Yami Gautam), a beautiful divorcée, who’s unable to have children.
Why see it? Don’t let the off-beat theme of this film stop you from watching it! Vicky Donor has the perfect marriage of comedy and romance (plus some drama) told in the point of view of a guy with a job that’s still considered taboo in many societies today.
Memorable movie quote: “Come a little above the sperm—there is a thing called heart.”
2. 2 States
What’s it about? A war between two culturally opposite families ensues, as college sweethearts Krish (Arjun Kapoor) and Ananya (Alia Bhatt) seek their parents’ permission to marry.
Why see it? Based on the partly-autobiographical novel of the same title by Indian author Chetan Bhagat, who penned Five Point Someone a.k.a. the book 3 Idiots was loosely based upon, 2 States is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet story minus the tragedy, topped with packs of laughter.
Memorable movie quote: “If suddenly everything becomes alright, then life becomes boring.”
