Currently, the world is going through a catastrophic pandemic and the best you can do is stay put. Don’t move, don’t travel, don’t indulge in anything. Except for the activities that you can do at home. And, a large part of work from home also means bingeing on a lot of your favorite content. In times like these, we would suggest you watch some feel-good movies on Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, just to lift up your mood. After all, we’re all in this together. So here’s our list of movies so help you not worry about coronavirus:
7 feel good movies on Amazon Prime Video and Netflix to watch during the quarantine period
1. BEFORE SUNRISE – NETFLIX
An absolutely beautiful film. One that will disconnect you from all the atrocities and gobble you up in its pure brilliance. If you haven’t watched it yet, NOW IS THE TIME. No, seriously. This is one movie you must watch and not just because we’re in the quarantine period. The story revolves around the romance between two people who meet on a train and get lost in conversation.
2. AS GOOD AS IT GETS – NETFLIX
The sheer brilliance of the dialogues between the couple in this film will send you in an instant uplift. Melvin, played by Jack Nicholson is the lead in this one. His character of a bigoted, compulsive writer is supported by a waitress, a gay friend and a dog (this should be enough to lift you up).
3. ENGLISH VINGLISH – NETFLIX
Sridevi plays the role of an elderly Indian woman who finds herself in the United States of America with minimal command over her English. However, she joins an English language learning program and excels in it too. Her climb to the top and everything else is set to put you in a good mood.
4. KARWAAN – AMAZON PRIME VIDEO
Karwaan is the story of three extremely different people coming together due to a mix up and an untimely death. However, the movie is about their journey and with Irrfan Khan’s perfectly timed comic bursts, this one is definitely a feel-good film. One that is deeper than the bickering, humour and chaos we see in this film. If not anything, watch it for the lovely shots of South India, now that you can’t actually travel.
5. DIL CHAHTA HAI – NETFLIX
An absolute classic. Only someone who has watched this film could qualify as a movie aficionado. Released back in 2001, directed by the Farhan Akhtar, it takes you through the importance of life, while also telling you to live every moment as it comes. It was a huge hit when it first released and is still one of the best movies Bollywood has produced.
6. MUNNABHAI MBBS – AMAZON PRIME VIDEO
This one is for all the Bollywood fans that are feeling nostalgic. For those times when you’re in a mood just to watch some easy going film. Also, the dramatic twists and happy ending on this one are sure to lift up your spirits. Munnabhai MBBS stars Sanjay Dutt in one of the better roles of his acting career. Same can be said about Arshad Warsi.
7. BARFI – NETFLIX
Barfi is a movie where Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor have both dug deep into the depths of their acting talent. Their relationship is a little different from the regular Bollywood films, but this one tops the charts in terms of feel good films. The innocence of the characters Priyanka and Ranbir play is what will put a smile on your face. And not to mention, the lovely list of songs in this one.
