bollywoods unrequited love

Nov 24, 2016 1:21:43 AM

Have you watched a romantic Bollywood movie recently? What was the story? Guy falls for a girl. The girl doesn’t fall back in love with the guy. Guy takes it as a challenge and starts chasing after her, essentially stalking her. Girl realizes that the guy truly loves her, why? Because of all his chasing skills, DUH! Same story, different characters, different location. That’s how it goes. And no, we are not saying that it’s only the guys who chase the girls. In some movies, there are girls who chase after guys too.

The release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has got mixed reviews from everyone. The agony of the broken heart has been portrayed time and again by various actors in various movies, even before Ae Dil Hai Mushkil came into existence. Bollywood seems to be by fascinated by the pain of a broken, shattered heart and we can only wonder when is it that Bollywood will move away from this topic that has been told time and again by a bunch of different directors.

The thing that seems to stump everyone is the fact that throughout the movie, Anushka Sharma’s character keeps rejecting Ranbir Kapoor’s character, and he is just too stubborn or childish even, to accept it. But this isn’t the first time that such a storyline has been portrayed in the film industry. Take Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush’s Ranjhana for instance. Dhanush’s character is madly in love with Sonam’s character and would do anything to get her. Even go to the extent of driving the both of them into the river on finding that she loves someone else. Albeit, Sonam’s character was an ass in the movie, that still doesn’t justify what he did.

We are not saying that there aren't any good movies made in Bollywood these days. But movies that do not hold love as the center of attraction are very rare and can be counted on the tips of your finger. We are not saying that people should stop making romantic movies. But at least make a movie that has a different story, maybe?

Somewhere in this process, we are at fault too. We fail to understand great movies when they are made, criticize them to the maximum of our extent. Love stories are like a safety net for Bollywood. No matter how many crappy movies they make, in the name of experimenting, they know we will eat it right out of their hand.

Hollywood is upping their game with movies based on real life like Sully or movies like Inferno and Doctor Strange; it is time Bollywood did the same and leave us and all the love stories a rest for a little while.

People, it is NOT OK to stalk a person. Pursuing and stalking are two different things and the latter does not mean it is ‘true love’. It is a violation of the other person’s right. And stalking someone will only get you hatred from them and possible jail time.

Bollywood’s love for love stories will never fade. But, one should also be thinking about the type of message to send out to people. There are people who take Bollywood very seriously and try to enact the exact way in real life. It is time Bollywood realize that no means no. Chasing after someone and stalking someone is not the way love works.

She has bagged several awards including the Miss World pageant 2000 and the Padma Shri award, which is the fourth-highest civilian award, by the Government of India in 2016. She is also named one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Being from non-filmy background, she initially wanted to study engineering or psychiatry. She started accepting offers after winning the pageant. Her Bollywood debut, The Hero: Love story of a spy, highest-grossing Bollywood movie that year, but received mixed reviews from critics. After her initial setbacks, Priyanka received acclaim for her role in the movie Fashion, where she played the role of a model from a small town.

Priyanka was very close to her father, who passed away in 2013, he was also the one who helped her develop her interest in singing. She was very close to her father and is seen sporting a tattoo- “Daddy’s Lil Girl…” on her wrist. Due to her parents’ occupation, her family has relocated to numerous places around India.

At the age of 13, she moved to United States to study, where she participated in several theatre productions and studied western classical music. Growing up in the US, she was bullied for being an Indian kid. After moving back to India, she started winning beauty pageants which eventually led her to winning the Miss World pageant in 2000.

She is also seen in an American network thriller series Quantico and will be seen in Baywatch. She recently moved to New York to pursue her career in Hollywood and her apartment is a dream come true. Priyanka Chopra’s production house Purple Pebble Pictures has released a Marathi movie Ventilator in which she has sung a song in Marathi ‘Baba’, which is a tribute to her own father. She has sung for Bollywood movies too, her latest being the title track of Dil Dhadkne Do. Her music venture includes lending her voice for a Tamil song and various other English songs of her own.

Despite the controversies that surround her Priyanka Chopra has managed to stay humble. The most recent controversy, where she was seen sporting a tee that says “traveler”, was wrongly received by the people and she was quick to apologize for the same. All we can say is – YOU GO GIRL!

  1. Short Skirts In School:
In the movie ‘Student of the Year’, Alia Bhatt is seen throughout the movie in short skirts and off shoulder dresses, during SCHOOL TIME. In reality, we are punished if we wear anything apart from our uniform to school. Wearing off shoulder dresses, short skirts, or shorts to school will probably get us thrown out.
  1. Unrealistic Love Life Expectations:
We have grown up watching Shahrukh Khan Movies and needless to say, he is the king of romance. But, the way Shahrukh woos his lady love can only happen in movies. You cannot just walk up to a total stranger and make them fall in love with you, in less than a minute. Nope. WARNING: Don’t try this. You might end up getting slapped!
  1. Synchronized Dance Steps:
Flash mob is a thing but that doesn’t mean you can break out into a dance step at a public place and everyone will start dancing in a synchronized manner with you. They will probably look at you like you are a lunatic. You don’t want that to happen to you now, do you?
  1. Telling Your Life Story To A Stranger:
Imagine this: you see a stranger looking at you from across the dance floor. You call him towards you, seductively. You two start dancing like crazy, and a few drinks later you are sharing your life story with them. Now I’m not saying that cannot happen. We are all perfect strangers in the beginning, but the sharing of life story part usually happens over a few days or few weeks.
  1. Dancing In Snow:
This might probably be the stupidest expectation on the list. No one can dance in the snow in skimpy clothes and not get chilled to their bones. It is highly impossible and fair warning; don’t ever try to do this. The actors probably have blankets and heaters waiting for them when the director shouts cut.
  1. Fairytale Love Story:
So many times we have wished that our boyfriend/better-half make us a nice romantic dinner or take us for a surprise vacation to Rome or just sit with us through a romantic movie without making a fuss. Sorry girls, that doesn’t happen in real life. Just like we cannot sit through an action movie, don’t expect your guy to sit through a romantic movie.
  1. Hair Goals:
How many times have we wondered if we can go for a bike ride or for a long drive in an open-roof car and step out of it without looking like we have just woken up? Sorry to burst your bubble on this one, but that’s not something that happens in real life. We will probably end up getting tanned and with dirt in our hair.
  1. Train Stations And Airports Chase:
Case in point: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. When Jai runs into the airport to stop Aditi from boarding the flight, all of us wished someone did the same for us. Do not do it! I repeat DO NOT DO IT! You are more likely to be thrown into jail for running into an airport and be labeled as a terrorist.
  1. Zero Studies:
Case in point: Aamir Khan in 3 Idiots or Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar or Dil Chahta hai. We cannot pass any of our exams without studying for them. More likely we will fail terribly in the exams and then be thrown out on our classes.
  1. Travel Goals:
We cannot just get up one morning and decide to go on a road trip with our friends. As exciting as unplanned road trips sound, there are a lot of factors to be considered when planning a vacation, especially when we are on a budget.
