We started off the week by celebrating Mother’s Day, and here we are, looking forward to showering pure love on our family on International Day of Families today. It is often said that everything in Telugu cinema is over the top and that is what makes it unique. So what better than celebrating the love and bond of your family with some over-the-top entertainment? We list seven films that you must watch with your family.
The decade-old Bommarillu tops our list in every single category. The film, starring Siddharth, Genelia Deshmukh, Jaya Sudha and Prakash Raj, is something that evokes all sorts of emotions in us. This International Family Day, watch Bommarillu all over again. It does not matter if the relationships in your family are blissful or stressful, this flick will make it all better.
Led by Mahesh Babu, Brahmotsavam also features Kajal Aggarwal, Pranitha and Samantha Akkineni. The age-old tales of large families and endless familial relationships are the high points of this film. This International Family Day, dedicate your time and thank the four generations as you watch Brahmotsavam with your family. It’s all about the family, after all!
3. Kotha Bangaru Lokam
It is completely fine to be unaware of the large-family jazz if you belong to a nuclear family. The superhit Kotha Bangaru Lokam, starring Jaya Sudha, Prakash Raj and Varun Sandesh, is a great example of showcasing the limitless love and affection of a nuclear family. From keeping secrets to silently understanding the problems of others, there’s no bond closer than that of a nuclear family.
A contemporary and simplistic approach to life, that’s the key to happiness. The recent hit film Hello, starring Ramya Krishnan, Jagapati Babu and Akhil Akkineni may be a romantic drama. But its underlying layers reveal the richness and importance of a family. Who said only blood relationships tie you together? Watch Hello, to see how beautiful a family is when there’s mutual love and respect.
Take off the layers of social welfare and romantic drama in the Shruti Haasan and Mahesh Babu-starrer Srimanthudu. What do you get? The story of an amazing family. There is Charusheela’s (Shruti’s) family — bound by their roots and respectful to their legacy and their land. The film is full of family values and today seems to be a good day to watch it.
Why does one have to wait till June 19 to celebrate Father’s Day? If you believe your father solely defines family for you, watch Hyper starring Ram Pothineni and Sathyaraj. It’s not that the world ceases for Ram, in Hyper, beyond his father. It’s just that nothing else qualifies to be more important than his father. Do you relate?
7. Brother Of Bommali
Can’t relate to any of the perfect on-screen families? Do you believe that our families are nothing like these and are a little dysfunctional? Then here’s the perfect pick that will give you a good laugh and definitely make you feel better. Allari Naresh and Kartika Nair-starrer Brother Of Bommali doesn’t seem to get old with its unique comedy.
