Bollywood movies based on road trip seems to have become a trend of sorts, with more and more films based on this subject line. The latest to join this bandwagon is Dil Dhadakne Do starring Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar which is directed by Zoya Akhtar. So with this current trend, why not list out the 10 best Bollywood movies based on road trips.
Zoya's last movie too was based on road trip, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The story follows three friends, Arjun, Kabir, and Imraan who have been inseparable since childhood. They set off to Spain on a bachelor trip and meet Laila, who falls in love with Arjun and helps him overcome his problem of workaholism. Kabir and his fiancée experience significant misunderstanding in the meanwhile, which they soon overcome. After solving the problem, the three friends go to locations in the country where each friend chooses a sport for the group to attempt.
Another recent movie that has joined this list is Finding Fanny starring Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor, directed by Homi Adajania. Finding Fanny revolves around five rather dysfunctional characters that live in the quaint sleepy village of Pocolim, nestled deep in the interiors of Goa, India.Four colorful characters from the village join on a road trip under random pretexts, though in actuality everyone wants a distraction from their mundane lives.
A young virgin widow (Deepika Padukone), a bitter mechanic (Arjun Kapoor), a belligerent artist (Pankaj Kapur) and an obnoxious self-appointed "Lady" of Pocolim (Dimple Kapadia) join Ferdie as they experience various hilarious and moving events that change their lives forever. So with two films based on a road trips, I was bound to think about which are the best Bollywood movies that are based on road trips.
