We are all trying to keep up with the chaos that has become of social media. While we could use a break, there is so little of it that we can execute. None the less, nothing beats the joy of watching good things. And so, we decided to bring to you, a list of some classics to watch this weekend!
While these films are purely those that we feel might fit the bill, you can add yours to the list as well!
Here are our top 5 picks of feel-good classics:
Do we even need to explain why this has made it to the list of classics to watch this weekend? And in fact, it is also the top pick! Well, for someone who was introduced to the film a lot later, we could use this movie as an example of excellence. As Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan take us on a journey of a terminally ill man, we discover life through his lenses.
Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar
Funny how although these are plots that are the most cliche stories in Bollywood today, the classics never disappoint. With a cast of Aamir Khan, Ayesha Jhulka, Deepak Tijori, and Pooja Bedi, the movie is a classic for a reason. While everything seems to have worked out just fine, the film is a treat, every single time.
Socha Na Tha
I still remember finishing this movie until the very end, every time it came on TV. With changing times, I’ve also streamed it online a couple of times. While the movie released in 2005, so much from film feels relatable. If anything, this movie is one of the finest from Imtiaz Ali, and then there is the pairing of Abhay Deol and Ayesha Takia. It absolutely deserves to be one of the classics to watch this weekend!
Munna Bhai M.B.B.S
As Sanjay Dutt takes the center stage in this one, we are taken on a laughter ride throughout. However, time and again, there are these truth bombs that are casually dropped in the film, and that’s the beauty of it. We all know the story that it narrates, and well, even though full of Bollywood cliches, this could be the ‘jaadu ki jhappi’ we need!
Wake Up Sid
For so many of us, this movie means different things. While some relate to Konkana Sen Sharma’s character, some relate to Ranbir Kapoor. However, what makes this movie special is how there is something relatable for everyone in it. And well, that is the reason it has made it to the list of feel-good classics to watch this weekend. (Oh, and we see the variation here!)
