Travelling is an experience, it creates memories that stay with you for a lifetime! Some Bollywood movies showcase locations so wonderfully, that as soon as you watch them you want to just pack your bags and embark on a crazy adventure yourself! So if you love travelling, here is a list of movies that will make you feel like packing for you next chutti now…
1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
No points for guessing this… ZNMD has to be the poster movie for travel lovers. Every single one of us has dreamt of planning our next vacay to Spain after watching this beautiful portrayal of friends road tripping around the country! That’s not all, the movie also captures some exciting experiences like scuba diving, the Tomatina Festival and Pamplona Bull Run… It definitely created some new bucket list entries for us all!
As if watching the oh-so-quirky Rani (played by Kangana Ranaut) embark on her honeymoon all alone wasn't inspiring enough, the movie Queen is bound to give you major wanderlust. From the insanely amazing sightseeing in Paris to one of the most outstanding cities in the world, Amsterdam, Queen wonderfully seizes the essence of solo travel.
3. London, Paris, New York
For the travel enthusiast in you, the movie London, Paris, New York, as the name suggests, takes you on a roller coaster ride through these three cities. After watching this movie, you can’t help but wonder, what if you too, find love on the way...
4. Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani
While this amazing movie is known for many things like pursuing one’s dreams, finding love and friendship that lasts forever, it’s also a treat to the eyes! Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani takes you through to the pristine snow clad mountains of Gulmarg in the first half and then to the palaces, monuments and galiyaan of Rajasthan to finally end in a destination wedding in Udaipur! This movie is bound to set some serious destination wedding goals too!
5. Dil Chahta Hai
Apart from having one of the best story lines on friendship, this movie surely made Goa, with its fun filled beaches and watersports shots, a must visit destination with friends. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags, call your friends and get going…
6. 3 Idiots
While Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots is a superb movie in itself, the climax takes the cake. The last scene showcasing the breathtaking beauty of Ladakh and the crystal blue waters of Pangong Lake definitely make you want to visit this ‘Heaven on Earth’ destination.
Our all-time favourite Bollywood classic would very much appeal to the travel bug in you! With Kajol and Shah Rukh, embarking on a crazy adventure as they travel around Europe, this movie made ‘Eurotrip’ the new thing of the 90s. The opening scene with Trafalgar Square in London and the oh-so-romantic location in Switzerland, make you want to just be there!
8. Dil Dhadakne Do
In this movie, as a family cruises through Spain, Turkey and Tunisia, each country is portrayed in its full-fledged glory with wonderful gastronomical experiences, sightseeing and natural beauty! This movie makes you want to pack your bags and go aboard on a cruise with your entire squad right away!
‘Collect moments and not things,’ is exactly what Deepika and Ranbir truly live by, as they explore Corsica, a lesser known yet aesthetically alluring city, in this movie. The happy vibe and the songs only enhance one’s desire to make this your next dream destination!
10. Hum Tum
Rani and Saif’s chance encounters during different phases of their lives, first taking them to Amsterdam, then to the United States, followed by the city of love, Paris and finally ending in India, makes you want to be in their shoes!
