Bollywood movies to help you get over a breakup

2022 May 29, 10:42, India

Heartbreaks are often seen as very difficult to get over and it does not help that popular culture including literature to music have all in some way or the other attempted to make us believe that epic romances are a once in a lifetime experience! This is, however, the farthest from the truth one can be because each failed relationship is in itself a lesson. Also, with time more references have popped up in a pop culture that shows breakups aren't the be-all and end-all of your happiness. Here's a list of a few Bollywood films that you can watch to tide over the crushing disappointment that accompanies the end of a relationship.

'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' franchise

These films revolve around three bachelors and how each of them navigates the twists and turns in their love lives. It emphasises the importance of the 'bro code' that people sometimes forget when they are in a relationship.


Directed by Farhan Akhtar, the film follows an aimless, jobless and irresponsible man who remains dependent on his father even as an adult. After a failed romance, he joins the Indian Army and becomes a hero. This movie attempts to show how nobody is worthless and that nothing is impossible to achieve with hard work.

'Dear Zindagi'

Alia Bhatt poignantly depicts her character Kiara's "abandonment issues" and how she eventually seeks therapy. 'Dear Zindagi' will help you realise that maybe there's a reason why some relationships aren't meant to be and why we should cease to hold on to them.


This romantic comedy-drama film directed by Homi Adajania can be a difficult watch if you have been recently dumped. The film, however, goes on to show that it's not necessary that you will always end up with an obvious choice but fall for the least expected person.


One of the best Bollywood movies, the film is about a girl who decides to go ahead with her planned 'honeymoon' to Paris and Amsterdam despite her fiance calling off the wedding. To feel happy in life you are not dependent on anyone else- seems to be what the film attempts to project.
