Bollywood might be growing with every passing day but there are still some films which hold a special corner in our hearts. These movies are beautiful enough to make us feel nostalgic about our good-old childhood days. So, why not celebrate this Children’s Day cuddled up in a quilt with some popcorn by your side and bring out the sweet naughty child within us watching some Bollywood classics? We bet these films will take you on a pleasure trip to your growing up days.
After Shaktiman, the only 90’s superhero that you could instantly recall of would be, of course, Mr India! It was the first Bollywood superhero film that drove us crazy and introduced us to the epic villain, who scarred everyone with “Mogambo Khush Hua”. Even Sridevi’s “Hawa Hawai” and the gang of kids won the brownie points.
Kamal Hasaan and his antiques have surely made our childhood entertainment a way better. Remember how we wished our dads to be our Chachi 420? A perfect blend of emotions, comedy and everything else, Chachi 420 is a film we would love watching even for the nth time!
India’s first 3D film, Chhota Chetan is all about magic, spells and special effects. Backed by a sensible story, Laxmi’s dilemma and Chetan’s mysterious supernatural powers made it even more interesting. And not to miss, Urmila Matondkar’s cat-act!
The film which taught us to be fearless and bold, Makdee is a story about twins sisters Chunni-Munni and the witch they fight against – Makdee. It was indeed a perfect comedy horror film with a brilliant plot and sibling bond.
The Indian version of Gulliver’s Travels which had our childhood favorite Jaaved Jaffrey and Gulshan Grover, is something that would make us stay glued to our televisions screens even today.
Stanley Ka Dabba
The tempting visuals of several delicacies is what comes to our minds when talking about Stanley Ka Dabba. Stanley’s emotional and inspiring story left us teary-eyed too.
Koi Mil Gaya
It introduced us to the cutest alien Bollywood had ever seen – Jaadu, with his single expression of “dhoop”. Who would want to get rid of him? Maybe this is why Jaadu memes are still popular on social media. The cherry merry songs of the movie that we end up humming even today add to its positives.
Ek Ladka Ek Ladki
This one was more than a love story. It was about a bunch of kids and how they create havoc in the life of a rich rude girl to teach her a lesson. This Salman Khan-Neelam starrer, along with the gang of children is a laugh riot.
Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke
Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla might have been a popular pairing in the 90’s, but this time they were surely sidelined by a group of kids who literally took over the entire movie with their antics. They are innocent and at the same time smart enough to get anyone out of trouble. If you remember, one of the kids here was Kunal Khemu.
Framed by a sensitive plot, Masoom was a heart-wrenching tale of a little boy Rahul and his struggle to fit in a family which out-rightly rejects him for being illegitimate. The best part of the movie was the song “Lakdi Ki Kaathi” which is the cult anthem of all the kids no matter which era they belong to.
