Can you smell the popcorn popping? Well, we certainly can! Did you know that National Movie Night is celebrated on the second Friday of June to encourage everyone to start (or restart) a tradition of movie night with friends and family. Doesn’t that sound interesting ?
So grab your popcorn and put your phones away while we list down the top 5 movies you can watch this weekend with friends, family or even if you want to spend some ME time.
Four brothers having a strained relationship get into a series of events that turns their relationship from bitter to sweet. Kumbalangi Nights is one of the best Malayalam movies you can come across! The women in the movie are not ones in need of a “strong” man and instead stand up on their own when it matters. Certain scenes in the movie are so noteworthy that you would want to rewind and watch it over and over again! From the use of fishing nets as a picnic bed for the lovers to the breathtaking moonlit nights, the fishing village of Kumbalangi in Kochi, Kerala is indeed its own character in the movie!
We are sure you all must have already watched the trailer of Aamir Khan’s much awaited movie, Laal Singh Chadda. Did you know the movie has taken its inspiration from Forrest Gump, a 1994 movie by Robert Zemeckis? This movie will teach you so much about doing what you love, staying optimistic, appreciating life and how to channelise pain into something productive. So before Aamir Khan awes us with his movie, let’s give Tom Hanks from Forrest Gump a chance. We promise you will be a fan of his acting!
Did you know that Masaan was Vicky Kaushal’s debut film? Yes, our favorite heartthrob of recent times rose to fame with Masaan, a tale of heartbreak and hope. The protagonists of the movie represent a younger, tech savvy generation that refuses to be restricted by societal barriers of gender and caste in their hunt for happiness. Shot in Banaras, the film was able to capture the true essence of the place – constant-yet-changeable, with felicity and feeling!
The movie is about a 58-year old retired man, who tries different things to keep himself occupied until one day he realises that cooking is his true passion. This was also the first time in Indian cinema that one role was played by two people. Yes, Paresh Rawal had to fill in the role when Rishi Kapoor passed away, but when both are legendary actors, it can be nothing but magical for the viewers. This movie can make for a perfect watch with your family this weekend.
If you are a movie buff, you have surely heard about the legend, Satyajit Ray. Pather Panchali is one of the most heart-touching movies you will ever come across. It will fill you with joy, sorrow and leave you emotional till the end. The movie makes you feel like you have been a part of the family’s journey.
