Top watches for a friends' nightstay

Refreshing comedy, adventurous escapades, vibing with mates and a friends reunion with a few tears and repatching of wounds– these are the necessary flavours that are a must in any movie worthy of a watch on a squad night-stay.

Here’s a list of the top Bollywood movies that are entertaining and should be on your binge-list to watch with your close companions.

Andaz Apna Apna
8.4OTTplay Rating
A classic cult comedy, the movie is an all-out laughing riot. It revolves around two young and broke slackers, Amar and Prem, who decide to win over a pretty heiress to inherit her property and become rich. From Aamir Khan to Karisma Kapoor, from Raveena Tandon to Salman Khan along with humour legends Mehmood, Jagdeep and Devan Varma– Andaz Apna Apna strikes all the required checkboxes of comic timing, commendable acting and a hilarious script.
3 Idiots
8.8OTTplay Rating
An evergreen classic and one that has etched itself in the history of Bollywood, 3 idiots is a film that is as relatable in its storytelling as possible. Following the narrative of three idiots, it shows two parallel timelines: one where the group is struggling with the pressures of a renowned engineering college, while figuring out what they really want from their lives and enjoying themselves to the cusp. The other timeline depicts them as grown-ups, who are trying to locate one of the mates, whose existence seems elusive. Adding humour to drama, realistic elements of the burden of college to near-perfect acting – it is a movie which should not be missed at any cost.
Rang De Basanti
8.6OTTplay Rating
A cult film symbolising the struggle of people with the government, it is based on a group of five friends who decide to voice their protest against the injustice of the Indian army for the sake of their friend. Rang De Basanti has so much to offer, in terms of entertainment and social message, something that is not very frequent in mainstream movies.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
6.9OTTplay Rating
Breathtaking locations, groovy dance numbers, soulful songs, young romance and the charm of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s chemistry – the movie is a must watch, that will definitely make you want to take a trekking trip with friends. An alive and natural vibe dominates Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, that is both invigorating yet captures the clash between love and career. A complete package, it is a film that will make you fall in love with your squad, and have adventurous trips with them.
Dil Chahta Hai
8.5OTTplay Rating
A tale of three friends Akash, Siddharth and Sameer, the story narrates how an inseparable group gets unknotted and their path to falling in and out of friendship, while navigating love and life. Dil Chahta Hain has been an all-time favourite and is set in the premise of Goa, where the gang promises to return every year to celebrate. Its impact on us is still raw and rejuvenates whenever we watch it all over again.
Kai Po Che!
8.2OTTplay Rating
Set against the bloody backdrop of communal riots in Gujarat, the movie is essentially a story of friendship. With refreshing restraint and sublime subtlety, Kai Po Che will keep you at the edge of your seats as it portrays the middle-class India using strong characterisation and authenticity. A coming-of-age film without a single ounce of dishonesty, it speaks of dreams and aspirations, friendship standing the test of time and the pursuit of excellence.
