Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, can be a watched this friendship day. The movie is all about three friends starring Hrithik Roshan as Arjun, Abhay Deol as Kabir and Farhan Akhtar as Imraan. The story is about how three friends meet for a bachelor trip and the journey changes their lives forever. We miss our friends every time we watch this movie. Even my show Ishqbaaaz is all about ‘sibling-friendship’. It always gives friendship goals to its audience.

For friendship day, I would love watching 3 Idiots. The story of Rancho, Raju and Farhan is so touching yet so funny, we can’t help but watch this over and over again. The sheer simplicity of their friendship wins our hearts and makes us think of the friends we made in college and that one crazy friend who always thought out of the box. I would even love to watch Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, the story of Kabir’s friendship with Aditi and Avi and Naina. The movie shows how one is alone without friends and true happiness can be found only when one’s true friends are around.
For me, it has to be Rock On, as the movie tells us the story of four friends and the struggles in their lives. The way their friendship stood the test of time and emerged stronger after a bout of misunderstandings struck a chord with all. The meaning of friendship in life is clearly legitimized. Star cast Farhan Akhtar, Prachi Desai, Arjun Rampal, Luke Kenny, and Purab Kohli has left friendship goals in the film for the youth.
I enjoy watching Cocktail which stars Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty. The trio definitely gave us friendship goals. And even Queen, for that matter, can be a better watch. Queen explained us how friendship is important in life. Kangana and Lisa rocked the screen. Even my last show Swaragini, set friendship goal on the small screen.
Dil Chahta Hai is one of my favourites, which I would be the watching for the occasion as I celebrate friendship day. All of us could relate to either one of Akash, Sameer or Sidharth. If not, we definitely have a friend who does. This movie was responsible for all those reunions with long-lost friends. Even I feel blessed that just like Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna, we (M3 – Mona, Manu and Manveer) also had left Friendship goals in the BiggBoss house.
For friendship day, I would love to watch Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. It was an absolute contradiction to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. It breaks the stereotype that ladka ladki kabhi dost nahi ban sakte. A refreshing take. I even enjoy Kangana’s Queen movie about how Rani travels to Paris for her honeymoon after her fiancé deserts her and refuses to marry her. She finds a friend in Vijaya who builds her confidence and later in Amsterdam, the coy girl shares a room with three men in a hostel and the friendship she shares with them is liberating for her.
Of course, Rang De Basanti. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra succeeded in adapting the story of India’s freedom fighters in contemporary time by telling the story of a group of friends who decide to raise their voice against the injustice of the Indian army for the sake of their late friend. They choose to die bravely for their friend which has brought tears in our eyes time and again. It’s good to be motivated for doing something great along with your friends and enjoy friendship day.
I would have to say, Haathi Mere Saathi. Way before Marley and Me came Haathi Mere Saathi, the story of the friendship that Raju shares with four elephants. The movie has brought tears to our eyes every time we have watched it on television. I also like Koi Mil Gaya, Rohit’s friendship with Jadoo, an alien, who accidentally was left behind on Earth got many of us crying. Jadoo helps Rohit by giving him superpowers, while Rohit helps Jadoo return home. The movie explains how friendship is far away from the inhuman world.
For friendship day, I promise Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Entertainment’ would be the best watch. The way friendship between a Dog and Man has been framed is inspiring and amazing. also I would suggest Aamir Khan’s Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, as the movie shows bond between brothers, just like the strong friendship I share with my brother. If it’s about Hollywood movie, The Hangover will be the best watch for the friendshipday celebration.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, staring Shahrukh Khan, Rani and Kajol is the perfect watch for celebrating friendship day. With ‘Pyar dosti hai’, this movie popularized the ideas of Friendship’s day and friendship bands in India. The bromance between Anjali and Rahul, which blossoms into love later, tried to express how friendship is the first step towards falling in love. Even my show Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi set friendship goals on small screen.
Amar Prem’s nok-jhok friendship in Andaz Apna Apna, would be the best watch this friendship day. We shall always remember how these do mastaane fought and later became amazing friends, who also helped each other through their difficult times.
The best flick to watch on the occasion of friendship day has to be Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, a story of bffs, Aditi, Jay and their friends. Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na is close to our hearts because we have at least one friend, who resembles one of them. Else Wake up Sid, The coming of age story of Sid is a new-age tale of friendship. Sid’s friendship with Ayesha makes him responsible and independent. She not only shares her apartment with her, but also finds him a job he likes and helps him find himself.
So, which movie have you planned to watch this weekend? Let us know in the comment section below. And, Happy Friendship Day.
