Can’t Travel Right Now? Watch These Bollywood Movies For Major Travel Vibes
The coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown have destroyed our travelling plans (sad reacts only!). 2021 was supposed to be the travel year, but the second wave of the pandemic didn’t let us do so. However, Bollywood movies have got our backs and always inspires us to travel. Revisit these films and keep your hopes high (iss saal nahi toh agle saal!)
Jab We Met
After watching this movie, all of us have wished missing our trains and finding our Aditya who would take us to our destination. This movie brilliantly puts the message that travelling can really open the doors of opportunities and can change the way you handle life. Though the film covered many places, it also spoke about the company while travelling. Who wouldn’t want Geet as their travelling partner, right?
If there’s any movie that makes us want to travel stress-free and not worry about the destination, it’s the brilliant film Highway directed by ace filmmaker Imtiaz Ali. The movie takes us on a journey of self-discovery. The window seat of Mahabir’s truck and the fresh air touching Veera’s face had such an impact that we just didn’t want the vehicle to stop. Ditching the usual train and air journey, the movie focused on-road travel and TBH, we fell in love with the road trips all over again!
Dil Chahta Hai
The movie released in 2001, but it’s still as relevant as it was in the early 2000s. Let’s just say Dil Chahta Hai has set travel goals for the whole generation. Chilling with friends on a Goa beach, where do you think the concept from? In fact, the movie had such a strong impact that Goa became the national holiday state of India and every friends group have once made a plan of Goa (which has mostly failed, BTW!)
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara
Let’s just say that Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara is the OG when it comes to the genre – travel. No other Bollywood movie has defined the importance of travelling with friends than ZNMD! The road travel, the adventure sports and the crazy Tomatina festival were all just to-die-for! (low-key wishing to ZNMD kinda trip!)
No other Bollywood film has explored the fun and the pain of travelling solo like the movie Queen did. The movie showcases the negative and positive sides of travelling solo (mostly positive, though!). Queen proved that solo travelling could give you wings and make you feel liberated like no one and nothing else can.
“What happens in Corsica stays in Corsica”, this dialogue took our hearts away. The film showcases how to strangers can fall in love while travelling together, and the love can turn out to so pure. Though the movie was more than just travelling, it did make us that we find our Tara or Ved during travelling.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani showed us how important it is to pack our bags and go on a trek with our friends because kal kya ho, kisey pata? The movie puts out a bold message that we don’t have that much time as we think we do. So whatever time is left before all our friends get busy with their careers, pack your bags as the mountains are calling you!
Before ending their lives, the protagonists decide to travel, which turns out to be the best decision for them. Both the lead characters, through a dart, decides to go to Las Vegas. Anjaana Anjaani tells you that there is no such life problem that travelling can’t solve.
Most of the Bollywood movies have dealt with travelling with strangers, friends or lovers, but Piku stands out from the crowd wherein a father-daughter duo along with the owner of a taxi company takes a road trip from Delhi to Kolkata. The film will convince you to go on a road trip with your parents once!
Dil Dhadkane Do
Dil Dhadkane Do takes all the credit when it comes to a lavish family vacation. The film puts out a strong message that travelling can turn a dysfunctional family into a Hum Saath Saath Hai type of family. Travelling makes you take charge of your life problems and solve them too!
