It’s an undeniable fact, that our idea of life, love and loss has been defined a lot by Bollywood. More often than not we find ourselves emotionally attuned to movies, which makes us realise our own-self worth. Speaking of which, the coming of age drama ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ is one of the best written and directed films that youngsters can relate to allowing us to feel too many emotions.
The movie instantly struck a chord with the audience and continues to stay alive in the hearts of generations of all ages. The Ayan Mukerji directorial starring Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapoor is an ode to friendships, which also redefines the idea of romance and relationships with loved ones, especially for today’s youth. As the movie celebrates 8 years today, we revisited 8 best moments from the film which gave us important life lessons.
Chase and live your dreams
‘I want to fly, I want to run, I even want to fall … I just don’t want to stop’ This was the moment we fell in love with Bunny. He emphasises one to make every day count, and live to the fullest. His clear ambitions, love for his dreams and ambitions, allowed him to create a life he always aspired for.
Sometimes impulsive decisions are the best
A scared Naina reflects on her mundane life, takes a leap of faith, and sets out for a journey – the trip, that changes her life forever. While boarding the train, she overthinks yet trusts her guts.
The importance of self-love
During the camping, Bunny gives a Bunny-like TED-talk to Naina, that allows her to embrace her uniqueness. A self-deprecating Naina realises to acknowledge her cool traits, which allows her to free herself and enjoy the rest of her trip.
Paagalpanti is important in friendship, but a dose of maturity is a must
In their gang of three best friends, looks like Aditi was the one who was the most sensible and matured one. When Bunny’s decision of going abroad get reveals, she sensibly encourages Bunny to take that step, and embark on his dreams.
Respecting each other’s individuality
No such thing in life can ever be stated as right or wrong. Just perceptions. When exploring Udaipur, Bunny and Naina engage in a comforting conversation of contradictions where both talk about the best things they have experienced in life. That’s where Bunny realises, Naina might not be right but is different from him. Both learn to respect each other’s individuality as they learn to accept each other and soon fall in love!
Time heals everything
Naina’s un-called advice to Bunny allowed him to ease and calm down after he got shaken by Avi’s cold behaviour towards him. Indeed, time does wonder.
Back then, Aditi helped Bunny maturely realise his emotions. Aditi acknowledged that her relationship with Avi was one sided, since she was the only one in love with him, thus hurting herself. After meeting Taran she realised she could also be happy in life.
At the end of the day, your parents will love and support you, no matter what
Our parents always wish the best for us, hence they are concerned all the time. No matter what, they’d love and accept you for who are. They are the ones, believing in your dreams and vision, will support you throughout every storm and battle.
It’s okay to breathe, pause and live in the moment for your good
We are always in a hurry to achieve the best, because of our fear of missing and losing out. Naina lets one to realise, that it’s okay to admire, pause and live in the present moment. Because, no matter what, we’d keep missing out on things, however hard we try. That’s when Bunny comes to terms with the fact that it’s okay to pause and relax and live in the moment. He realises his love for Naina and comes back to her.
