Let's put the remix generation aside for a while and revisit some mature love stories our industry can boast of!
Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi
Boman Irani's portrays a middle-aged Parsi, Farhad Pastakiya, who lives with two women, his mother and grandmother. But the day Shirin Fugawala (FarahKhan) walks into his shop, life, as he knows it, is never the same again.Can Farhad convince Shirin to fall in love with a portly underwear salesman against all odds?
Pritam (Mithun Chakraborty) and Geeta (Ratna Pathak) were separated by her affluent father, owing to Pritam's humble background. Years later, they accidentally meet, rekindling a long lost romance. But the years have filled their homes with headstrong children, who are sworn enemies. The blockbuster told the story of love conquering all odds, age, infirmity, white hair and the works!
How many fathers would allow their daughters to marry a man closer to their age? This is a dilemma faced by Paresh Rawal, when his headstrong daughter Nina (Tabu) brings home her boyfriend- 64-year-old Buddha Dev Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan)! 'Cheeni Kum', like the name suggests, is a bittersweet love story that appeals to folks of all ages.
Despite four adult sons, Raj Malhotra (Amitabh Bachchan) keeps the romance with his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) by even singing and dancing for her. The family drama was enjoyable because of the crackling chemistry between this couple. Few made it through this movie dry-eyed!
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' boasts of several memorable moments, but a golden one is the relationship of the flirty teacher, Miss Braganza (Archana PuranSingh) and the bald, yet charming college principal, Mr Malhotra (Anupam Kher). Really 'Kweet'...err 'Cute'!
Kal Ho Na Ho
This is among Dara Singh's most memorable romantic roles on the silver screen. In 'Kal Ho Na Ho', Uncle Chaddha is trying all his old tricks to impress the lady next door, Lajjo (Sushma Seth). Hats off to Lajjo-ji, who bats her lashes and traps the strong Mr. Chaddha.
Pyaar Mein Twist
Family disapproval forces the madly-in-love couple to run away and get hitched. The twist? It's the kids who oppose the union! Recreating the magic of their film 'Bobby', Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia left their viewers with a warm, fuzzy feeling after watching this film.
Another Parsi treat, this 1978 flick is a classic. Homi Mistry (Ashok Kumar) is a Parsi widow, who is introduced to Nargis Sethna (Pearl Padamsee) and wants to marry her. But their kids are hell bent on ensuring that this 'unhealthy' relationship never reaches the altar! 'Khatta Meetha' won't have you looking at the time, even with a second watch!
