After my friend’s insistence (put in even threats), I finally watched Bhajrangi Bhaijaan (Brother Hanuman). And I felt SO touched after watching that you totally got no idea about it. I feel that it’s a movie that everyone, irrespective of their nationalities, should watch it. And that’s why this review.
Starring: Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Rahul Bose etc.
Director: Zoya Akhtar
Zoya Akhtar has done it again. She approaches fresh topics and presents them in a quirky and youthful way. I loved Dil Dhadakne Do in a way that I haven’t loved any movie in the last few months.

Dil Dhadakne Do’s literal English meaning is “Let The Heart Beat”.
Song of the day: Born This Way — Lady Gaga [Listen Here]
Sitting back and wondering what to do on a lazy Saturday afternoon, I decided to watch some dramas and movies (Asian, of course!).

While some of these movies are very creative, thought-provoking and nostalgic, most of them are wooden. However, I compiled a list of such movies which were box-office hits and became cult movies. So, why wait? Let’s begin…
