Movies are considered an important source of entertainment, but more of an artistic medium where one can depict the realities of society.
However, there are times when you just don’t want to face the struggles of the real world. While there is no dearth of commercial movies, sometimes we have trouble to find the right movie. It is mostly because sometimes these masala movies often follow the same plot lines, the same quirky jokes and we end up thinking as if we wasted our time.
If you’re planning a breather and that includes watching an absolute no-brainer movie, here are some recommendations that might help you.
1. We’re the Millers
A road trip, fake family, and smuggling drugs? Makes for the holy trinity of a comedic and silly movie. The cast of the movie is enough to get you going, it’s Jennifer Aniston and Emma Roberts after all. The dysfunctional relationships and hilarious quips between this made-up family are sure to make you laugh hard. The humour is at times silly, but nothing cringe-worthy.
2. Mamma Mia
Mamma Mia is an amazing movie to freshen up your mood. It is based on Sophie and her mother, who is planning Sophie’s wedding on an island. Sophie invites three of her mother’s lover to her wedding, thinking that one of them will be her father. What follows is a lot of drama, comedy, and silliness. The fact that it is somewhat musical makes it even better! The movie may get a little cheesy sometimes, but nothing a side of popcorn can’t balance.
3. Crazy, Stupid, Love
Ryan Goslin, Emma Stone and Steve Carell in the same movie are, of course, going to be epic. Although the movie seems very predictable, you’re in for a surprise, it will be an emotional roller coaster. The chemistry between the cast is just adorable and well, go watch for yourself!
4. Princess Diaries
If you just want to revisit some of the childhood princess tales, this one will do it for you. Mia Thermopolis, a high school student finds out that she is actually a princess of the country Genovia, and it is up to her to take the crown or leave it. She chooses to do it, but now she has to prove herself worthy of being a princess. A classic fairytale blended into the modern world, this heartwarming movie may be a bit cliché but is surely a guilty pleasure to live for.
5. The Kissing Booth
The Kissing Booth is a Netflix original movie, revolving around the life of a high-school student. A high school party and secret crushes are the recipe for this rom-com. There’s nothing extraordinary in the movie, and you may find the same high-school cliques, teenage romance and more. The movie is aimed at teenagers, but who says you can’t indulge into this very light-hearted film and enjoy yourself?
