5 Movies That Redefined The Meaning of Friendship For All of Us!

Movies are undeniably the best depiction of life experiences. The roles that we see our favorite stars playing in high budget movies, we all play those roles in our real life in one way or another; sans the extravaganza and allure that captivates one and all on the big screen. There are thousands and thousands of movies made every year but some leave a mark that makes one nostalgic. Friendship Day is approaching, have you made any plans with your friends?

Let me give you a list of 5 classic movies that define the whole meaning of the word ‘friendship’ for the 1.21 billion people of India.


Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:

Zindagi na milegi dobara

Although, it is hard to relate to the situations that these three friends go through on their journey, to overcome their fears; however, it is so easy to identify with the commotion, confusion, and compression that they portray. The story of these three individuals who are so different from one another and yet in alignment with each other is enthralling and also what sets this film apart.


Dil Chahta Hai:

Dil Chahta hai

There is a reason why this movie is considered to be a cult movie that epitomizes friendship.  The characters of the movie are relatable. They are careless, lost, hasty, irresponsible at times, even mean to an extent but always there for each other. Their love stands the test of time and brings them back to where they started their interesting journey of friendship, trust, and dependability.




This one is a classic in its own genre. The movie depicts the life of boarding schools; how difficult and even frightening it can be and how you become friends with someone who is so different than what you are. That stranger becomes your friends, your confidante, and your guide. The fact that this movie portrayed a kind of innocence and charm that was beguiling, paved the way for it to be counted as one of the greatest movies on the theme of friendship.


Ye Jawani Hai Diwani:

Ye jawani hai deewani

This one is closer to the emotions and whirlwind that us Millennials go through. It is the story of four friends, who are somewhat alike and yet, so unique in their own special ways. The way they connect with each other is surreal. Although there is nothing extraordinary about their friendship, after all, they are a bunch of adults who have seen the highs and lows of life, but the fact they do not lose the innocence and transparency in their relationship and remain intact to who they have always been, is what ranks this movie on the list of best movies on friendship.


3 Idiots:

This one is a master piece. How one character leads the other two to embark their journey to their destiny is astounding. A unique individual comes from nowhere and becomes an integral part of the lives of the other two. He shows them the real meaning of life, dreams, and happiness; and then leaves when he is affirmed that they are ready to face the horrible realities of life on their own. But the other two never stop looking for him. A classic example of what people can do for friendship.

Now that you have your list ready,  what are you waiting for? Just go, grab your bowl of popcorn and that icy cold drink and celebrate this Friendship Day with your best friend watching these classic Bollywood films on friendship.
