Stuck with siblings this lock-down? I bet you have now run out of topics to fight upon.
While I agree that siblings can give you a tough time, we still have to be with them. Since a lot of times, you cannot really have heart-to-heart conversations with them owing to the generation gap, or your parents being around you, you can still bond.
The best way to bond is to watch some Bollywood movies together. I cannot stress how important is it to decide the right kind of movie.
You don’t want to make things awkward in the middle while staring at the ceiling. To help you make the best pick, here’s a list of Hindi Bollywood movies to watch with siblings.
22 Bollywood movies to watch with your siblings:
This 1972 classic stars legendary Zeenat, Mumtaz, and Dev Anand. You must have heard the song ‘Phoolon ka taaron ka… sabka kehna hai. Ek hazaron mei, meri behena hai..’ This song belongs to this movie. It is a poignant story but worth your time.
A 2007 release, Taare Zameen Par primarily shows the bond between a dyslexic Ishaan and his teacher who helps him. If watched with patience, you will see how Yohan (elder brother) has been empathetic towards him. It sure is a beautiful bond.
A sports drama starring Mamik Singh alongside Aamir Khaan is a comic and emotional movie. The portrayal of a unique bond between the two brothers has won many hearts.
A story revolving around family conflicts, Kapoor and Sons gives us a peek into the highs and lows between siblings. This fine drama has been well enacted on screen.
The innocent love between an elder brother and a younger sister has been correctly portrayed. The elder sibling always goes out of his/her way for the younger one. Just like our parents, they make silent sacrifices. This quality has found its way to the big screen.
A light road-trip drama about facing your fears is an enjoyable watch. Even though the movie revolves around 3 best friends, siblings are friends too! Besides, it is easier to go on road trips with them because of easy permissions.
Another movie that’s just hilarious and stuffed with drama can be scheduled for a movie night. It makes you laugh throughout. Siblings who laugh together stay together.

They support each other’s dreams and aspirations even when their own parents don’t. Dil Dhadakne is my favorite movie to watch with my sibling.
