Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin is well on course to sweep several top accolades this awards season. The story is deep-rooted around themes of friendship, and it stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in lead roles. In today’s List hai toh hit hai, we have curated a list of films from across languages that encapsulate the true meaning of friendship.

Kadhal Desam - Tamil (Prime Video)

The 1990 Tamil film follows the story of two rivals from contrasting economic backgrounds who become inseparable following an incident. However, their friendship is put to the test when they fall in love with the same girl. Abbas and Vineeth essay lead roles in this film, while Tabu plays the role of their love interest.

Gaalipata - Kannada (Gaalipata)

The Kannada film Gaalipata is the perfect film if you are in the mood for a feel-good romantic comedy. The 2008 film features an ensemble cast comprising Ganesh, Rajesh Krishnan, Anant Nag, Daisy Bopanna, Neethu, Diganth, and Bhavana Rao. The film narrates the story of three friends who fall in love with the three daughters of a hunter, while on vacation. Even though the plot does sound a little over the top, the film’s stunning visuals and engaging performances will have you hooked from start to finish.

Nadodikkattu - Malayalam (Free on YouTube)

Few Malayalam films capture the true essence of friendship as effectively as Sathyan Anthikad’s magnum opus Nadodikkattu. Based on a script by Sreenivasan, the renowned writer and actor also star in this film alongside Malayalam cinema legend Mohanlal. The comedy satire follows the lives of Vijayan and Dasan, who decide to migrate to the Middle East after losing their jobs. But through a comical turn of events, they are conned and end up in Madras and somehow get entangled with drug dealers and the police. The film is still widely cherished and still relevant even though it released in 1987.

Onek Diner Pore - Bengali (Zee5)

The Bengali film Onek Diner Pore, helmed by Debarati Gupta, revolves around four women reuniting at their old high school. As they take a trip down memory lane, they reminisce about the good old days. As their conversation flows in different directions, they soon realise that their lives were far from perfect and they come to acknowledge and accept the factors that fragmented their relationship. This lesser-known drama is definitely a must-watch if you prefer thought-provoking dramas about friendship.

Dhunki - Gujarati (Prime Video)

Do they crack under pressure or come through with flying colours? Watch this feel-good drama on friendship to find out.

Happy Days - Telugu (Prime Video)

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - English (LionsgatePlay)

Based on a Stephen Chbosky eponymous novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is arguably one of the best coming-of-age-dramas ever made. The narrative centres around the unbreakable bond between three friends, and it explores themes of love, abuse, trauma, and sexuality among others. Logan Lerman essays the lead role as a reclusive teenager who is befriended by two high-school pariahs, played by Ezra Miller and Emma Watson. The film is helmed by the author of the book himself and is an underrated gem.
