Love in Bollywood

Bollywood has epitomised love in all forms through its Movies. 'Pyar', 'Ishq', 'Mohabbat' and of course 'Love' many words for the same emotion. It has defined love in myriad shades from motherly love to passionate love and even violent love. 


Bollywood Movies throughout the decades have used 'Love' as the central theme, one of the most powerful motivators for human actions and emotions. The star crossed lovers and love triangles were one of the main themes of most movies in the era of 70's and 80's. The theme of movies in 90's changed as an effect of Liberalization. Though 'Love' was still a central idea in many movies, the formula changed and now we had obsessed lovers, rich guy/poor gal, NRI love stories and candy coated love themes popping up at an alarming rate.

In Hindi movies each lover had his/her unique way of expressing their love for each other. They may break out into dance and song at the spur of a moment, get drenched in pouring rain or write love letters to each other which are transported through pigeons.

For people who need some inspiration when it comes to matter of the heart, here are some original Ideas about expressing LOVE straight from our Bollywood factory fresh for you.

Movie: Ek Dujhe ke Liye

Carve your Lover's name in sand..no need to spend money on expensive Hallmark Gifts and flowers to impress your Lady Love.


Movie: Sholay

Climb on the tallest water tank near her house and proclaim to all around that you are planning to commit suicide as you cannot marry your loved one. In matter of minutes you will have all her relatives eating out of your hands. No need to elope, commit suicide or get married secretly..this is your secret mantra.

Movie: Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge

Men sometimes have an extremely weird sense of humour. If you do not have the courage to say 'I love You', please buy a card which says so instead of horsing around. Men please do not dare to do this in actual life..it is all 'chalta Hai' in Hindi Movie, most women would have definitely punched Raj's nose.


You can also proclaim your love in the 'sarson ka khet' when your sweetheart is out for her morning walk. Break into a song and make her run...run baby run...

Movie: Phool aur Kaante

Only men with a heart of steel should follow this below stunt. It is not for the faint hearted, don't say we did not warn you. A completely unique way to profess your love. Keep in mind that if you lose your footing this will be a straight ticket to an orthopaedic hospital.


Movie: Maine Pyar Kiya

In Bollywood movies, the heroine is a shy creature and it is quite difficult for her to confess her love for the hero. If you are shy just like her, you can use any gathering as a venue for group 'Antakshari' and open your heart to say the three magic words.



Movie: Mughal-e-azam

Very few of us can actually declare our love in front of the whole world. It takes a special kind of courage and a death wish to proclaim your love to the whole world. If you have the courage, more power to you.



Movie: Darr

If you want the girl then behave rationally. Acting like a completely insane obsessed stalker will not make her fall in love with you. Entering her house and talking to her photograph will be a sure shot entry to the loony bin, so watch how you try to enamour the woman you love.



 Any time someone mentions 'Bollywood', the talk quickly moves toward, over the top musicals with clichéd stories, running around trees and breaking out into a song at the spur of the moment.
The portrayal of 'Love in Bollywood' has always been unconventional and eccentric. Though most people cannot understand our love for such movies, we as Indians surely can, after all we are an emotional bunch of people who like our movies full of Masala and exactly how  Veeru said in Sholay- 'Iss story mein emotion hai, drama hai, tragedy hai'.

LOL!!
You seem to be a great movie buff.
There is also the proverbial rape/purse snatching/Girl dancing or singing alone in the rain which is used in so many movies.. :)

Smita said...

hehehe nice one here!!! You have picked up the real cheesy once we specialise in ;)

I specially like the MPK idea :D

Shilpa Garg said...

Wow!! This is too good!! Wonderfully humorous and funny, Vinita. The pics and captions are great!! :)
Cheers :)

RSV said...

OMG Vins...you were saying that you were finding it DIFFICULT to add humor to it??

Pujitha said...

The pics and captions just hit the spot!

RoseBelle said...

The FIRST Indian love story I read and then watched was the Ramayana. I fell in love with that story. I remember the love interest name was Sita. I think people gravitate towards pleasant human emotion of love rather than violence or tragedies.

Lol!!! That was a hilarious take on 'Love in Bollywood' ...liked your take on DDLJ :)

Smitha said...

LOL! LP, This is a classic! I can't stop laughing!

You have picked up all the corniest ones :)

It always makes me wonder what some of our directors think when they come up with such stuff :) But you know, so many of these movies, I had actually enjoyed when I was younger, but now cringe at the thought of them :) Age does that to one I guess :)

Journomuse said...

Hilarious...

But what about the new love stories. Wear a cap like Reshammiya while he woos his women around with his sultry steaming dumbness and sings through his blocked nasal passages?

And also the new love which sings Pappu can't Dance saala?? :)
