Bollywood is every Indian’s go-to after a tiring day at work, a break-up, an accepted proposal, a fight in the family… and almost every other situation. Bollywood movies have the power of turning things upside down with all its un-realism. They are a perfect escape. At night, when the world is sleeping in silence and you can’t (for the extra coffee cup you had in the evening), watch a movie! I have put together a list of 60 best Bollywood movies to watch at night. Most of them belong to the last decade, but I have made sure to add some classic masalas like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Hum Saath Saath Hai to take care of nostalgia.

1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD)

A direction of Zoya Akhtar and production of Farhan Akhtar, this movie released in 2011 and still rules our hearts. This is the number one go to film at the end of a busy day.

On number two is our other hot-favorite YJHD. This movie had beautifully relatable characters of Bunny and Naina. Full of humor and drama, this movie managed to make many Indians fond of traveling.

"Words are like the two faces of a coin, like yin and yang, like a double edged sword." I make sure to remind myself of this every time before I take a pen in my hand because writers themselves know not of what they do. A school going kid with my bag full of dreams and my mind full of thought, I wish my writings can make someone happy. I hate science and love forms of art that you may not. I do drama, a lot of it and talk even more. My social media handles have my other works. And remember, the best of me is yet to come!
