Rohan  is the dreamboat and bad boy. Ayesha  is the sweet and well-behaved new girl. The mismatched pair fall head over heels in love. At first, all goes well. But when jealousy and arguments split them apart, and Ayesha and her aunt go to Paris, Rohan uses various ingenious and illegal means to follow them and propose marriage to the love of his life at the Eiffel Tower.

My views
Rohan is a regular youthful energetic guy in high school. He is always up to pranks with his friends. One day he meets the new girl, Ayesha at his high school, but their first meeting is not a regular one. In fact it is a strange meeting where Rohan is bunking college and is detained by the school principal. In an attempt to avoid punishment, Rohan makes Ayesha a part of his alibi for not being in class. At the first meeting itself the two teenagers are drawn to each other and gradually they fall on love. Its like the most watchable movie of all the times. Have a fultoosh relaxation and chill out with this must watch. Its a perfect romantic flick with entirely fresh art of direction.

Wake Up Sid

Watch trailer here 

Synopsis Wake Up Sid 2009 Hindi Movie
A spoiled young adult living in Mumbai experiences a change in his lazy ways when he meets a woman at a party, who inspires him to "wake up".
My views
Wake Up Sid is inspirational. Everyone cannot be pure good, or bad or even perfect, it has its own shade of grey, that is what Sid's character is all about. Once you realize this, you go out an try to find what you love doing and everything else falls in place.It's all about waking the underachiever. 'Wake Up Sid' tells the story of a rich spoil brat who, thanks to a rich father, has everything going for him. However, the day he finds out he failed his final exam, frustration takes over and be breaks ties with his old friends and moves out of his parents' house. His new friend, Aisha, a vivacious non-nonsense young lady, new to life in Bombay, agrees to let him stay. However, the clash between lifestyles, that of Aisha, a strong independent tidy young woman, and Sid, a lazy young man who's dependent on others to clean up his mess and cook and serve meals to him, creates tension.That's all for the plot. The movie paced is slow and it gets draggy in middle but this is a must watch movie for everyone especially who is in grey stage of boy becoming a man.

Rockford


Title: Rockford
Genre: Family, Comedy
Director:

Cast:  , ,  

Watch trailer here 

Synopsis Rockford 1999 Bollywood Movie
The movie chronicles the arrival of a (Hindu) student to a strict all-boys Christian boarding school in India and his assimilation into the school. The change is quite dramatic to the protagonist and there are a lot of events that would look extremely abusive to the viewer.

My views
Rockford is a simply-told story of day-to-day struggles of most adolescents who attend public boarding schools (at least in India). It has an excellent script, well directed, and fascinatingly enacted. A typical school movie, it brought to light the joy and agony a boarder faces. A complexities and innocence of teenage friendships and first crushes. The entire movie was beautifully weaved around every teenage emotion, making it a must watch. Also, not to miss 'Yaaron', which became the anthem of friendship during that time.

Synopsis Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar 1992 Bollywood Movie
A rich brat and a poor chap try to woo a girl, with their rivalry culminating in the most prestigious college event - the marathon cycle race.

My views
This was a typical Bollywood film that depicted the life of a school going teenager perfectly. A rich brat and a poor chap try to woo a girl, with their rivalry culminating in the most prestigious college event - the marathon cycle race. It had drama, romance, heartbreaks and rivalry with the students of another school. The film's song 'Pehla Nasha' is the anthem of first crush till date.

Udaan

Genre: Drama
Directors:
Cast: Rajat Barmecha, Sanjay Gandhi, Ronit Roy

Watch trailer here 

Synopsis Udaan 2010 Hindi Movie
Expelled from his school, a 16-year old boy returns home to his abusive and oppressive father.

My views
Udaan is an heartwarming tale and very great storytelling with superb acting by the teen. The plot of the movie is essentially a two liner. A 17 year old is kicked out of boarding school for playing truant and is forced back to an apathetic father – and to a 6 year old half brother he didn't know existed. Stuck in a small town with no friends, forced to study engineering and work in his father's iron and steel works, Udaan is a story of Rohan's struggle with his loneliness and desperation. It is not pure entertainment, but it has got a soul to it. The poster of the movie might be misleading but it is a intensely heartfelt movie with a strong emotional connect  and with so much realism, that I cant shake the feeling it is, to a large extent, autobiographical. It's an coming of age because of its honesty and sincerity.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

Title: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director:

Synopsis Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na 2008 Bollywood Movie
Two best friends being convinced that they are not in love search for each other's love.

My views
Two best friends being convinced that they are not in love search for each other's love. This movie is refreshing and zestful. It strikes a chord and takes you down memory lane and remember those college days -- the gang, the parties, the crushes, the heartbreaks, the lovable friends you lost touch with. It is not a film which is ground breaking, or without any flaws. Yet, you will leave the hall on a happy, feel good note, maybe even humming -- Pappu Can't Dance Saala!

Dil Dosti Etc

Title: Dil Dosti Etc
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Drama
Director:
Cast:   , ,

Watch trailer here 

Synopsis Dil Dosti Etc 2007 Bollywood Movie
Dil Dosti Etc. explores the ambiguities of the youth years. The movie is about coming of age of Apurv, a rich, aimless and cynical 18-year-old young man, who has just entered college in Delhi.

My views
Set in modern Delhi,  fellow-collegians-cum-hostelers, Sanjay Mishra, and Apurv, challenge each other to win the University elections and sleep with three different girls respectively before the election results. While Sanjay sets out to canvas his candidacy, often with violence, against his opponents, Rajesh Solanki and Bunty Nagaar; nonchalant Apurv picks on Vaishali, a prostitute; cute and adorable high school student, Kintu; and is on the look out for a third girl. The question is will Apurv be able to find a third girl in time; and will Sanjay make a mark as the President of the Delhi University Students' Union?

Synopsis Tujhe Meri Kasam 2003 Bollywood Movie
Rishi and Anju are childhood buddies struggle to find out if they have more than friendship between them.

My views
Tujhe Meri Kasam is a happy feel good movie. Anju and Rishi are best of friends and study in the same college; their fathers are best friends, their houses are opposite each other and they were born in the same hospital on the same day! The two are inseparable but not in love. But then comes a day when Anju leaves for Bangalore for a week for a college festival. That week without Anju makes Rishi realise that he is in love with her. But he does not reveal his feeling to her for fear he may lose his best friend. What happens next is anybody's guess, fed as we are with the feel good films that will surely entertain you.

Synopsis Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge 2011 Bollywood Movie
When you can't make it on your own, the best thing to do is to fake it. But, the question remains, how long can you fake true love?

My views
As the film is based on FACEBOOK relationships, so here I press the LIKE button. So whats the story ? A good looking girl and a good looking guy use the profiles of an even better looking girl and better looking guy to chat with each other......for they are not so confident about their real self . As they begin to like each other , they want to meet . But both don't know who they are chatting to , and send the real persons of the profiles to meet each other . Well, a known premise with predictable twists and climax. Concept matches with "10 things I hate about you" and "You've got mail".
