One of my favorite things to do when I visit my husband’s family is sit down with his aunts and mom to watch Bollywood movies. They’ve introduced me to so many over the years and lately my husband and I have been watching them more at home.
I love watching them together as a family because my husband and I both enjoy them and it’s a great opportunity to learn more about Indian culture and even the language.
Netflix has been a goldmine for Bollywood movies! We have found family friends movies and movies perfect for after they go to bed.
Here are a few of the movies my husband and I are obsessed with this month!
Basically, imagine the Indian Gordan Ramsey! This movie follows the life of a chef who gets called back home to Kolkata after his mom gets sick. As the story unfolds you find out it’s been nearly 13 years since he’s been there and he finds out what he left behind. This movie is set apart from your typical Bollywood movie because it reveals an interracial love story!
If you like thriller movies that keep you guessing, this is your movie. It follows a pregnant woman who travels to India to find her missing husband. Only when she gets there nothing is as it seems no one knows who or where her husband is.
This was my favorite movies this month. It has everything I love… Singing, dancing, and a romance story! Two twins cause chaos everywhere they go as they try to hide their relationships from their family who tries to arrange their marriages to other girls. They throw each other under the bus to save their own skin and it’s hilarious!
A modern-day Romeo and Juliet. This epic movie follows the life of Prince Ashoka who falls in love. After crazy circumstances, he ends up a ruthless warrior and you get to see his journey back to himself. All while he practically conquers India! This is a great movie for couples because it’s full of action and romance.
Prem Ratan Dan Payo
A prince is days before his coronation and someone tries to kill him. His family keeps it a secret while he recovers and lets a stranger who looks just like him replace him. His future bride notices the difference because her stern fiance is now a fun a playful man. This movie is full of lighthearted moments, action, and a beautiful romance!
