10 Bollywood Movies That Kill us with an Overdose of Romance

Hindi cinema is full of romance. In fact, hindi cinema IS romance. Love at first sight, dancing around the trees, relentless love of the lover for his beloved, saree-flaring in Switzerland’s snow-clad peaks, we perfect the art of producing overly-doverly romantic movies. We lovingly bring to you the list of 10 Bollywood movies with bucket-full of romance poured in them, enough to give us diabetes.

1.       Maine Pyaar Kia – Songs, costumes, acting, dialogues, everything in the movie in dipped in the ink of love. To top it all, the chocolate boy look of Salman Khan and innocent girly Bhagyashree makes our faith stronger in the concept of ‘love-breaks-all-boundaries’.

       Famous dialogue: Friendship mein, no thankyou, no sorry.

2.       Tere Naam – Because bhai. And also because bhai in his best role ever. Kthanksbye.

Famous dialogue: Sari duniya pyar mein padi hui hai ... sirf ek mujhe hi haq nahi hai? ... ki main kisi se pyar kar sakun, koi mujhse pyar kar sake ... kyun?

3.       Mohabbatein – The name itself is enough.
       Famous dialogue: Duniya mein kitni hai nafratein ... phir bhi dilon mein hai chahatein ... jao kehdo is jahan se, is zameen se, aasman se ... rok na sakenge ab yeh mohabbatein

4.       Aashiqui – This bollywood musical romance movie of 90’s tops every movie buff’s favorite list. Love, jealousy, hatred, success, failure, but then love wins everything else.

      Famous dialogue: Ab mujhe tumhe pyar karne se koi nahi rok sakta ... tum bhi nahi

5.       Qayamat se Qayamat Tak – One of the heart-touching romantic movies of our time. Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla make a wonderful chemistry onscreen and the songs make it worth remembering forever – ‘Ae mere humsafar’, ‘Gazab ka hai din’, ‘Akele hein to kya gum hai’…need I say more?

      Famous dialogue: Iss hi doobte hue suraj ne hum mein pehli baar milaya tha ... dekh lena, yahi doobta hua suraj hum mein ek din hamesha ke liye mila dega

6.       Kuch Kuch Hota Hai – An ideal romantic movie for teens. From start to end, the movie smells of love. A very predictable love triangle though, but aren’t we suckers for romance? And what is romance without a little sadness and lambi judai and a rocking comeback with an image makeover? Thank you Karan Johar.
      Famous dialogue: Kuch kuch hota hai Anjali, tum nahi samjhogi; Hum ek baar jeete hai, ek baar marte hai, shaadi bhi ek baar hoti hai … aur pyar ek baar hi hota hai; Tussi ja rahe ho? … tussi na jao

7.       Veer-Zara – 3 cheers to Yash Chopra for the gooey, mushy, teary-eyed sentimental romantic movie. Gushing waterfalls, snow-clad mountains, rain and relentless wait for the beloved…if this isn’t love, what is? Veer-Zara is one of those movies that give all couples on the earth major relationship goal.

Famous dialogue: Woh kehte hai mera desh uska nahi, phir kyun mere ghar woh rehti hai ... woh kehte hai main us jaisa nahi, phir kyun mujh jaisi woh lagti hai

8.       Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam – A love triangle handled really well. And oh, Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai (real?) love cooking in the haveli. Of all the things, it’s the background score that wins over everything else.

Famous dialogue: Sameer, hawa ka jhoka

9.       Dilwalee Dulhaniya Le Jaenge – The romantic foray that is etched in the heart of Bollywood for ever and ever…the movie reinstates how love can melt even the toughest and hardest of hearts. Come, fall in love with Raj and Simran.

Famous dialogue: Ja Simran ja, jee le apni zindagi!

10.   Hum Aapke Hain Kaun - This recipe of this movie is Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan, mixed with some crazy, classic songs and lotssss of dancing actors supporting our hero and heroine in the background. The casting is genuine and there’s somuch generosity behind the emotions of all the characters that we sip all the excessive sugar happily.

      Famous dialogue: Kyun ... hum aapke hain kaun?

Too sugary, or not?

When She Danced to the Raaga

She stood stiff, with her neck buried into her piano, just the way a cow grazes the grass. She believed this way, she can bring her mind closer to the task and concentrate fully. Her fingers moved like undersized waves that ebb and flow recklessly into a sea. The black and white keys, the notes and half-notes blow some syncopated music that she could dance to. She so wanted to! But she concentrated to get the Malkaush Raag right.

Some music begins to flow into the room like maple leaves fall in Ontario- soft, and bronze red.

“Guru ji says this music releases some sort of nourishing energy”- she chuckled without looking up at him.

“Nourishing energy? Umm… like some soul stirring?”- he enquired.

“Soul-stirring. Yes. This raag is believed to have been created by Goddess Parvati to sooth Shiva when He was outraged and would not calm down...after Tandav...and…”

She resumed her attention on the Arohana notes. She just slipped her hand from Komal Ga to Shuddh Pa. "Pa is completely omit…

You won’t believe Who Would be Watching ‘Bahubali-2’ Even Before its Worldwide Release!

Movie buffs in India are eagerly waiting for the release of ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ but guess it’s the Queen Elizabeth II of UK who would watch it first. Reports have it that Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ will be screened in UK a day prior to its worldwide release. 
The British Film Institute will showcase Indian films as a part of Indian Film program from April till December and Baahubali has made the cut to be screened to mark 70 years of India’s independence. If sources are to be believed, not just Queen Elizabeth II but PM Modi would also be among the first ones to know “Katappa ne Bahubali ko kyu maara”. He is likely to attend the screening on 27th April, i.e., one day before its worldwide release – but no official statement has been declared.
With a budget of Rs. 150 crores, Baahubali is the most expensive movie in the history of Indian cinema.  It is a sweeping epic that glues the audience for straight 2 hours and 40 minutes, with our mouths wide open to the gr…

3 Reasons Why Not Wearing a Bra is sometimes the BEST Feeling in the World

As insane as it may sound, but women are ALWAYS in a love-hate relationship with their bras. They would be very choosy about the size, make and color. Every morning, they would meticulously choose which one to wear that complements their dress; but this dear feeling would soon vanish as the day advances. Through this post, I’m trying to list down the reasons why women love to hate their bras that they happily cling on to on a daily basis.

   .Just Letting Them Breathe For it is the basic and fundamental right of any being. Yes, boobs are beings and women feel the urge to unwind and let them breathe, for breathe they must. So when the days are heavy and you can’t take the cruelties of the world anymore, remember to unhook

  2.   To Avoid that Stabbing Feeling

Men would never understand the feeling of something constantly stabbing their chest and shoulders. Women would agree that however comfortable bra they wear, it can sometimes sting the body (padded and wired ones specially are kille…
