It’s Father’s Day and while we’re sure you’ve all gotten something special for your dads, nothing beats a warm Bollywood film on a rainy day. Here are 5 movies that are perfect to sit tight and watch with your dad.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge


Apart from being one of the best Bollywood films ever, this one also features not one but two of the best Bollywood dads ever. While Anupam Kher plays SRK’s dad as easy-going and always supportive i.e. the perfect dad, Amrish Puri plays Kajol’s conservative father as the classic Bollywood patriarch. But his turn of heart at the end leaves us with the forever golden line “Jaa Simran, jee le apni zindagi!” Is there anything better a dad could say?



We could’ve populated this list entirely with Amitabh Bachcan movies. The legend has played every kind of father imaginable from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham to Sooryavansham, not to mention subverting the role with Paa. But we decided to pick this recent gem, where Amitabh plays the overly concerned with his bowels and not much else dad to Deepika Padukone. It’s a refreshingly sweet and sour look at the relationship between a father and daughter.

Chachi 420


We’ve watched this 90s comedy so many times we’ve lost count! Kamal Haasan plays a man so desperate to see his estranged daughter, he decides to dress up as an elderly woman and play the role of her nanny. This was the first film directed by Haasan and it’s a laugh a minute rollercoaster ride. Never a bad watch!

Oye Lucky Lucky Oye!


While we didn’t want to go too dark with paternal relationships, we couldn’t help pick this quirky take on the subject from Dibakar Banerjee. In a fascinating twist, Paresh Rawal plays three roles: as Abhay Deol’s father and two different father figures he meets at different stages in his life. They all have their pluses and minuses, but together they contribute to the making of the infamous ‘superchor’ that is Lucky.

Do Dooni Chaar


In this sweet little dramedy, Rishi Kapoor plays a middle class school teacher trying to keep his family happy while struggling with the economy. This was the first time he and Neetu Singh were seen together on screen after almost 30 years. As an average man trying to have it all, Rishi proves he’s one of India’s best actors.

  1. Some songs like “You’ll Never Walk Alone” or “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor” are appropriate
    for all audiences and faiths. Attempting to write your own music will give you
    a natural feel of creating music and the ability to write your own songs.
    If you are an artist looking for studio time, here are a couple things
    to help you develop a relationship with a good home studio.

  2. May I simply say what a comfort to find somebody who truly knows what
    they’re discussing onn thee web. You ceryainly know how to bring an issue to
    light and mzke it important. A lot more people ought
    to read this and undeerstand this sidee of your story.

    I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that youu most certainly have the gift.
