Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani
Don’t we all just wait to be like bunny and his friends and climb the mountains? Go to Manali in heavy snowfall and spend some fun adventurous time with friends. We all want to fly, run, fall, sing, and dance but don’t want to get stuck, right?
We all want to be Veera shouting from mountains and travelling at the top of a truck. Playing in the field and living in the mountains. To just go on and hit the road and take that journey, where you reach it doesn’t really matter.
We all want that break from work and just want to go back to our childhood. Leave the mess of the world, the heavy load of expectation, and just revisit our childhood days. Travel from Delhi to Kolkata with a stopover at Varanasi.
Dil Chahta Hai
This movie is a travel goal for everyone. We all plan to go to Goa and take that memorable shot from the film. Friends and goa and those plans to go to the place and chill. Revisit all of those with this one.
Jab We Met
The film starts off with a train journey from Mumbai and makes some interesting stops at Ratlam, Kota, Bhatinda, Manali, and Shimla. Train journeys have never looked this scenic. We all want to be Geet and just roam around carefree in the world.
This film makes go through not just the emotional aspect of being connected to roots but also makes you travel around rural India. This old gem with the charm of Shah Rukh Khan not just makes you feel something but also makes you visit the most untravelled parts of India.
Keeping the comedy of the film aside, a beautiful south India can be felt through this film. From the majestic Dudhsagar Falls in Goa to the lush hill town of Munnar in Kerala, each frame of the movie was a sight to behold in this film.
This film explores the side of Kerala that most tourist miss. With a strong story line each frame is a beauty where Kerala is depicted in its most raw but beautiful form.
The holy city of Varanasi showed in this film is so pure in its spirit. The religious divide, the local culture and colour of the city was beautifully captured in the the film. You could feel the place through this one.
With a string story line this film makes you travel through the ’50s and the beauty of Manikpur, a small town in West Bengal. The second half of the film showcased the alluring snow clad mountains of Dalhousie.
Honorary Mention: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
Don’t we all just want run through those lush green beautiful ‘Sarson Ke Khet‘ just like Raj and Simran. Punjab is so beautifully shown in this film that we just get the whiff of Punjab through the later part if the film.
