This edition features Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone who has films like Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail, Chennai Express and Padmaavat among more to her credit.

Om Shanti Om

Streaming on: Netflix, Voot, YouTube, MX Player
Director: Farah Khan

deepika padukone, om shanti om Deepika Padukone made her Hindi film debut with Om Shanti Om (2007).

A quintessential Bollywood drama, Om Shanti Om marked Deepika Padukone’s Bollywood debut. The film paid homage to many classics of Hindi cinema, and director Farah Khan managed to recreate the old-world charm. Shah Rukh Khan once again managed to win hearts as he opened his arms in his inimitable style. Several dialogues from the film like “Ek chutki sindoor ki keemat..” are still quotable.

Bachna Ae Haseeno

Streaming on: YouTube, SonyLIV
Director: Siddharth Anand

Deepika Padukone, Deepika Padukone films, Deepika Padukone birthday, Piku, Bajirao Mastani, Tamasha, Ram-Leela, Piku, Finding Fanny, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Chennai Express, Happy New Year, Love Aaj Kal, Om Shanti Om, Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor in Bachna Ae Haseeno.

A young boy Raj (Ranbir Kapoor) is commitment phobic until he finds his true love in Gayatri (Deepika Padukone). Gayatri changes his perspective about love, and he apologises to two girls, Radhika (Bipasha Basu) and Mahi (Minissha Lamba), whom he had left heartbroken. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film is a typical candy-floss drama that boasts of beautiful people, exotic locales and dreamy song sequences.

Love Aaj Kal

Streaming on: Netflix
Director: Imtiaz Ali

Imtiaz Ali presented the love story of two generations in his 2009 film Love Aaj Kal. It starred Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, who played lovers who won’t ‘die for each other’, but would rather prefer being friends even if their love story doesn’t work out well. If you are in a mood to catch up on romantic fiction, Love Aaj Kal can be a good option.

Karthik Calling Karthik

Streaming on: Netflix
Director: Vijay Lalwani

deepika padukone, happy birthday deepika padukone, deepika, deepika padukone birthday, deepika padukone films, deepika turns 30 Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar in a still from Karthik Calling Karthik.

Karthik (Farhan Akhtar) is an innocent man who has failed in love and is bullied at his office. But one day, he gets a mischievous phone call from himself and his life changes. He turns into an extrovert from an introvert and manages to win over his ladylove (Deepika Padukone). Though the plot reads interesting, the film fails to hold your interest for long. I wouldn’t say it is a bad film, but if you have options, you can skip it.

Housefull

Streaming on: ZEE5, YouTube
Director: Sajid Khan

Starring Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Jiah Khan, Arjun Rampal, Ritesh Deshmukh, Boman Irani, Randhir Kapoor, Chunky Pandey and Malaika Arora, Housefull is your typical Bollywood masala entertainer. It is filled with nonsensical comedy which makes you laugh but also gives you a headache. The story loses pace somewhere in the middle and takes its own sweet time to come back on track.

Lafangey Parindey

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video
Director: Pradeep Sarkar

In Lafangey Parindey, Pradeep Sarkar tells the story of a group of youngsters living in the backstreets of Mumbai. A talented Pinky Palkar (Padukone) wants to win a TV reality show, but her dream is shattered as she loses sight in an accident. The man responsible for the accident, Nandu (Neil Nitin Mukesh) in an attempt to right his wrong, helps Pinky in learning how to dance in the dark. Eventually, the two fall in love too.

Aarakshan

Streaming on: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video
Director: Prakash Jha

The 2011 film Aarakshan finds its narrative in the social issue of caste-based reservation in the higher education system of the country. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpayee, Prateik and Tanvi Azmi, the film tries to question the discrimination in the government and private education institutions.

Desi Boyz

Streaming on: Eros Now, ZEE5
Director: Rohit Dhawan

Desi Boyz is that movie which doesn’t hurt to watch. It is a happy film about two “brothers, from another (hotter) mother” who share a strong bond. They lose their job in London due to the recession, and how they plan to survive the financial challenges makes for the major part of the film.

Cocktail

Streaming on: YouTube, Voot
Director: Homi Adajania

Deepika Padukone emerged as a surprise package in Homi Adajania’s Cocktail. Her character of an independent, bold woman Veronica, who doesn’t fear to speak her mind, got her a lot of appreciation. Though the film’s narrative had a typical love-triangle at its centre, its novel treatment got it many takers.

Race 2

Streaming on: Netflix
Director: Abbas–Mustan

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

Streaming on: Eros Now
Director: Ayan Mukerji

With its soothing music, engaging narrative, beautiful locations and quotable dialogues, Ayan Mukerji directorial, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Aditya Roy Kapur, Kalki Koechlin, Evelyn Sharma and late actor Farooq Sheikh, is among the most loved romantic-comedies of Hindi cinema. It captures the essence of love and passion in this day and age.

Chennai Express

Streaming on: Disney Plus Hotstar, Netflix, YouTube
Director: Rohit Shetty

If Rohit Shetty is at the helm, how can you not expect a full-on ‘seeti-maar’ film with all the ingredients of a masala entertainer blended in the right quantity? Chennai Express is your perfect weekend watch to lighten the mood in these gloomy times.

Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela

Streaming on: Eros Now, SonyLIV, Youtube
Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali

It is in this Sanjay Leela Bhansali spectacle that Deepika Padukone shared screen space with her now-husband Ranveer Singh for the first time. The two made for a charismatic on-screen couple and left the audience in awe of their chemistry and their Bollywood-ish dialogue-baazi. If you are a DeepVeer fan, this retelling of Romeo and Juliet’s love story is a must-watch.

Finding Fanny

Streaming on: Disney Plus Hotstar
Director: Homi Adajania

In her review of Finding Fanny, Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta called the film “occasionally pleasurable, but not entirely memorable.” She wrote, “It is an unlikely bunch, getting together for an unlikely reason, and in the way of this kind of film, we are supposed to fall in love with the characters and their quirks, as they wind their way towards their destination and discovery. Trouble is, the film is patchily quirky.”

Happy New Year

Streaming on: Netflix, YouTube
Director: Farah Khan

It is one of the highest-earning films of Bollywood. However, don’t fall in the trap by looking at its box office numbers or big names like Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Deepika Padukone associated with it.

Piku

Rana Chaudhary, a driver, played by Irrfan, is the third wheel in the story who gets stuck between this father-daughter duo as they take a road trip to Kolkata.

Tamasha

Streaming on: Netflix, YouTube

Tamasha, starring Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor, is an inspiring film to many youngsters who are stuck in mundane jobs because of family and societal pressure.
