Don’t we all eagerly wait for the weekend? It is that leisure time when we catch up with friends, travel to new places, spend fun time with family and most importantly we head to the theatres to satiate our Bollywood bug. We watch movies for new stories, humour, adventure, fantasy, music, cinematography and unlimited entertainment. So, take a look at some of the travel learnings that Bollywood has taught us over the years.
1. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995)
‘Apologise and accept apology for a loving holiday’
“Bade bade deshon mein aaisi choti choti baatein ... hoti rehti hai”
Well this iconic movie inspired youngsters to travel to a foreign country before settling down in life. The picturesque Europe and heart-warming romantic tale of Raj Malhotra (Shah Rukh Khan) and Simran (Kajol) won hearts all over the globe.
You too can have a similar adventure as Raj and Simran with our Europe Tour Packages. Excitement is just a flight ticket away.
2. Chalo Dilli (2011)
‘Don’t panic if your travel plan gets disrupted, instead enjoy the experiences that destiny has in store for you’
“Kaun si badi baat ho gayi”
Didn’t you just laugh your head off while watching this amusing movie? In this film, Mihika Banerjee (Lara Dutta) misses her flight to Delhi and embarks on an adventurous road trip to Delhi with a jovial co-passenger Manu Gupta (Vinay Pathak). Their journey is filled with hindrances and they accidently reach Jaipur. Funny part is that for every mishap, Manu cooly replies “Kaun si badi baat ho gayi.” But after experiencing the golden sunrise and the colourful local life, Mihika forgets her fears and embraces the unplanned pleasures of life.
3. Dil Chahta Hai (2001)
‘Keep alive the child inside you and indulge in all the crazy little things with your pals’
“Ya toh dosti gehri hai ... ya yeh photo 3D hai”
Recall this comedy movie? It made us laugh, it made us cry and took us through the transformational journey in the lives of three best buddies - Akash (Aamir Khan), Sameer (Saif Ali Khan), and Siddharth (Akshaye Khanna).
4. Queen (2014)
‘Be brave and don’t hesitate to befriend foreigners or else you may miss out on your best vacation ever’
“Mera sense of humour bahot accha hai, aapko dheere dheere pata chalega”
I guess everyone has watched this superb movie. It talks about Rani (Kangana Ranaut) who is ditched by her fiancé Vijay (Rajkummar Rao) but still travels on her honeymoon alone to Paris and Amsterdam. This film inspired the female folk to live life on their own terms and set off on a holiday on their own.
5. Andaz Apna Apna (1994)
‘Striking conversations and sharing will help you make friends while travelling’
"Do dost ek pyale mein chai piyenge ... isse dosti badti hai”
Remember this hilarious movie? The two characters Amar (Aamir Khan) and Prem (Salman Khan) set off on a journey to impress and marry a rich heiress, Raveena Bajaj (Raveena Tandon). Initially, they compete against each other but later face the challenges together and end up becoming friends. Their funny interactions and shaky plans gave us a good dose of laughter.
All you Bollywood buffs, please do share with us more movies that has taught you travel lessons.
