My Favourite Bollywood Movies

(Yeh Jawaani)

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

This movie is one of my favourites because it depicts the story of a boy named Bunny, who seeks adventure and thrill in his life. He is not one to be living a normal life, which includes a 9 to 5 job, family responsibilities and regular tasks of life. Bunny wants to travel the world, keep learning new facts about the different cultures people follow and discover his potential. Naina, on the other hand, is a studious, simple girl that wants to become a doctor, raise a family and support her parent’s old age. She finds comfort in living life slowly and enjoying the flow of fulfilling her small and meaningful goals. They both end up going trekking together, something Naina was never brave enough to do but still went on this journey alone and befriended Bunny and his entourage. They both separate for 10 years, as the movie takes a gap into the future of Naina’s life as a physician and Bunny’s life as an international photographer. Destiny unites them once again and this time, Bunny’s priorities are different and he falls in love with Naina. What I really enjoyed about this movie is how Bunny’s character had developed a higher maturity level and realised that his love for Naina will take him further in life than his desire of always wanting more. The moral of this movie is that you should express gratitude of what you have in the present instead of dwelling on the past or wishing for the future because “now” is all that you have control over.
