3 Idiots

3 Idiots

If we are talking about friendship and the first film which strikes in our mind is Aamir Khan, R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi’s blockbuster, ‘3 Idiots’. The Rajkumar Hirani’s film tells us a story of college friends who always stood by each other in every situation or condition. That’s why the film redefines the line – College friends are for life.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai – Love Is Friendship

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

How can we forget Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji starrer Kuch Kuch Hota Hai for its valuable lesson of friendship? When professor Braganza asks SRK what is love then he quickly answers, Love Is Friendship! Well, this dialogue is still popular among the masses and applies to our life. After all, before falling in love with your partner, you first need to be a friend of his/her.

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara – Friends help you understand yourself better

We can always openly talk with friends and share each other’s every day updates. This is what Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara taught us. When Abhay Deol gets into trouble but hesitates to speak to his friends played by Hrithik Roshan and Farhan Akhtar. At that time, only they make Abhay confess what he feels about Natasha, his fiance in the film, played by Kalki Koechlin. This shows that only friends can help you to understand yourself what is better for you.

Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety – A friend in need is a friend indeed

Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is the perfect example of ‘A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed’. After all, when Titu (Sunny Singh) gets into trouble with his relationship, he quickly calls Sonu (Kartik Aaryan) to resolve their problem. Interestingly, Sonu also keeps him away from bad people and always help him to make decisions for his betterment. That’s why they say – A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed.

Dil Chahta Hai – Even if you don’t speak to each other, you get together someday

Dil Chahta Hai

Dil Chahta Hai

The trio of friends has always been the best thing of your life, because, when two people fight with each other, the third one tries to resolve problems between them. Well, this is the plot of Dil Chahta Hai that showed us the above-mentioned point. Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna don’t speak to each other but Saif Ali Khan tries to resolve their problem by being a mediator. In the end, the trio comes together and gives us a big lesson of being united. Notably, Dil Chahta Hai is the film which started a Goa trend among the youth.

Rang De Basanti – Always fight for friend’s right till last breath

Aamir Khan starrer Rang De Basanti is still one of the favourite films of youth in India. The film gives you a direction towards our responsibility towards the nation, pride and encourages you to work hard. Amid all, the major lesson which Rang De Basanti taught is in friendship, you always have to fight for your friend’s right till your last breath. The way Aamir Khan and gang fight till their last breath for their martyred friend is really commendable to watch.

Wake Up Sid – Only a friend can understand you well

Wake Up Sid is the film which changed Ranbir Kapoor’s career, however, nobody thought that the film would give you a lesson about friendship as well. When Ranbir Kapoor who played Sid leaves the house, only his dear friend Aisha played by Konkana Sen Sharma understands his situation and allows him to stay along with him. This shows how a friend can give you everything which people still hesitate to.

Sholay – Not only love but Friendship is about sacrifice too

The 1975’s cult classic film, Sholay is the best example of sacrifice in friendship. When Jai (Amitabh Bachchan) saves Veeru (Dharmendra) from goons, fights them is the highlight of the film. Especially, being a bestie of Veeru, Jai sacrifices his life to save him which is indeed an emotional scene of the film.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na – You can find your love in your best friend

Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na

Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na

Imran Khan and Genelia D’souza’s Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na is yet another film which gives you a lesson on how you can find your love in your best friend. This rom-com showed Jai (Imran Khan) and Aditi’s (Genelia D’souza)chemistry so brilliantly that people fall in love with them. Interestingly, the way Jai and Aditi keep their friends close but don’t realise that they love each other madly. In the end, they realise their love for each other and end up getting married which gives us best friendship goals.

Queen – Friends teach you to live life out of your comfort zone

Kangana Ranaut’s Queen has given many lessons to society about its perception about wedding broken girl. Apart from these lessons, one important thing the film taught about how friends teach you to live life out of your comfort zone. When Rani (Kangana Ranaut) goes for her honeymoon alone, Vijay Lakshmi (Lisa Haydon) and other friends in Amsterdam build up confidence in her and teach her to live life out of her comfort zone.
