Monsoons seem to play a pivotal role in films. They are an indication of romance, long lost love, and of course they create an atmosphere of passion. Now that monsoon has hit in full swing, there is nothing better than curling up on your couch with a hot cup of chai or cocoa and rewatching some classic films where the rains bring loved ones closer. Take a look at all the films you can watch that have a bit of the rains in them!
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
One of the most epic romances of all time, the rain scenes in this film are iconic. Sway with King Khan and Kajol to the melodious tune after they get soaked in the rain and relive romance! A love triangle with little difference, Rahul Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan) and Anjali Sharma (Kajol) are the best of friends who paint the campus red. Tina (Rani Mukherjee) is the Oxford-educated, bhajan-singing daughter of the college principal (Anupam Kher) who returns from London and has Rahul fall promptly in love with her.
Wake Up Sid
This coming-of-age film is just perfect for the weather. It is indicative of the fist rains in Mumbai, romance, innocence, love and bewilderement. Much like Konkana Sen, watch this film with a piping hot cup of chai for full effect!
Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, Lootera is one gorgeous movie that promises everything from adventure and romance to fantasy and drama. It is one of the finest period dramas that Bollywood has ever witnessed. So, just cuddle up in your blanket and drown yourself in the great chemistry between Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha.
Midnight In Paris
Midnight in Paris is considered one of the finest movies by Woody Allen. Watch it for the love of Eifel Tower and the Seine, because what’s better than Paris? Well, Paris in the 1920s, in the rain. Apart from the comedic gems, the romance, and the talented cast make this movie a must watch.
Jab We Met
A story of this kind, with two strangers, missing trains, running away from homes, travel, separation and everything in between was unique and one of its kind for 2007. Moreover, it was not the usual story but it was a completely different journey that was shown. Adding to the great story, it had beautiful writing which was perhaps, the movie’s third lead star. Imtiaz Ali, who also wrote the screenplay, filled the running time with outstanding stuff. The feelings were relatable and the writing, fresh. It struck a chord with all types of audiences. Right from the swear words Geet throws at Anshuman, to the applause-worthy one-liners ‘Mein apni favourite hu’, ‘Doubt mat rakhna dil me’ and ‘Sikhni hu mein Bhatinda ki’ and so many of those, Imtiaz really won our hearts with his screenplay.
Jatt and Juliet
Jatt and Juliet is a typical love story that makes you fall in love with love all over again. Even though like other love story theme movies, Jatt and Juliet also doesn’t have anything different to offer but still it touches the hearts and feelings of every person who (predicts) about love. The story sequence promises to have seat bound viewership.
There’s more of everything in Hulchul. The jokes are broader, the humor is at its best, the melodrama is louder. The story canvas is also very well stretched out.
Mr. and Mrs. 420
The movie is full of laughter explosions and sarcasm. The 2 way roles played by Binnu Dhillon and Babbal Rai will leave you entertained and intimidated.
Deepika and Ranbir convey their agony and passion so convincingly that you’re hooked. Except for the curiosity about them, the rest of the drama is ‘oh,never-mind’. Matargashti and Heer toh badi sad hai, two of Rahman’s songs, are magical even as standalone numbers.
Not only is Finding Nemo an amazing movie for every occasion, it is even better during monsoon days. It’s the perfect movie to cuddle up with your favorite blanket, and eat candy and popcorn like you’re a little kid again at the theaters.
There is something undeniably romantic about the monsoon. Cuddle up beneath the blanket and rewatch one of these classics to get the whole feel. Happy Monsoon!
