Yes, we are talking about the youth oriented movies, the one’s that are by the youth, for the youth and of the youth. Let’s look around the top 10 young generation Bollywood movies.
10. Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi:
Sudhir Mishra’s must watch memorable and overwhelming movie, ‘Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi’ brings about the saga of the melodramatic early 1970s when India was surrounded by the emergency and the Naxal movement. The movie brilliantly digs into this chapter through its three central characters Vikram (Shiny Ahuja), Geeta (Chitranganda Singh) and Siddharth (Kay Kay Menon) and makes you cross the path of gruesome realities and complexities the young generation face. Full of intensity and revolution the movie illustrates how and why the fire in the young India died out, how the heart once filled with angst converts into regret and gilt. A wonderful movie, it is a kind of story which will make every young mind think.

9. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:
Three Friends and a road trip to Spain with a philosophy, “There is only one life and you do not get another chance to live”. Sounds exciting, isn’t it? Well, the movie ZNMD is what I call “Aisi Film Milegi Na Dobara!” One of the best aspect of the movie is you’ll find the characters realistic. They have their own hiccups and like real friends share cold vibes and not something impractical like ye dosti hum nahi todenge. The songs are melodious, the dialogues are interesting, the script is great, the performers are at their best, the cinematography is awesome, the locations are picturesque and the message conveyed of self-realization is something very intriguing. What else do you want from one of the most uniquely thought of Bollywood movies?

8. Socha Na Tha:
Imtiaz Ali, the writer and debutante director’s ‘Socha Na Tha’ is what we call a paisa vassol movie. The movie illustrates how Viren Oberoi (Abhay Deol) who wants to marry Karen Fernandes (Apoorva Jha) eventually falls in love with Aditi (Ayesha Takia), the girl which Viren’s parents had settled from him but he along with Aditi scuttles the marriage plans. With melodious song, good dialogues and a really interesting script, this Abhay Deol starrer is worth a watch especially for youngsters with an opinion that love happens only once in a lifetime.

7. Pyar Ka Panchnama:
“At times, the baby. At times, the replacement and at times, the dog. Such is the life of man.” This awesome cum hilarious cum superb cult movie really is worth a watch. The story revolving around three friends Rajat, Choudhary and Liquid takes you into their lives who struggle to comprehend the complex creatures – women – and fail to cope up with the wrench of living with them. None of the young minds, especially males, can stop admiring the movie and especially the stretched single shot monologue where Rajat lets out all the enclosed torment after a clash with his girlfriend, making you go in splits for the whole period of that angry outburst. No wonder someone there on screen allegedly says out loudly what not many men wouldn’t ever find words to express. A light hearted comedy ought to make your day and who knows might even make you yell, precisely!

5. Rock On:
A movie about the verve of a boy band apparently doesn’t have mass appeal but the message it depicts is for everyone – it’s never too late to live your dream. For all those people with unfinished goals and dreams lost in time, ‘Rock On’ surely manages to impart hope. An honest and sincere movie with its superb music and lyrics along with a powerful performance by the actors, make this film as one of the best Bollywood movies ever!

Farhan Akhtar’s second directorial movie, ‘Lakshya’ didn’t create a box-office record like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ but the movie about the maturing of a direction-less upper-middle-class youth was enough to create an impact. Based on the central character Karan Shergill (Hrithik Roshan), the story in its quintessence deals with his ‘growing up’ as a characteristically confused son of a well off businessman who is not just at ease but full of bliss to drift along. However the easy going guy seems to be gradually bothered as he finds himself left behind in the race of success. Like so many of us in real life he too ultimately lands up in a profession rather than willfully choosing one. The movie brilliantly touches upon that phase and that segment of the young crowd.

3. Dev D:
A superb visual ride, Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Dev D’ is a unique version of the famous Devdas novel that will only make your jaw drop. No, you definitely won’t find Abhay Deol as charming like Dilip Kumar or dramatic like King Khan but will definitely love him in his character as the froth bug. Afresh with a new generation perspective this contemporary Devdas will woo you in every possible way. Get ready for the original and a new take on the subject with some equally good numbers.

2. Dil Chahta Hai:
A revolutionary film that created a rage among the young bloods, ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ cannot be forgotten ever. An impressive directorial debut by Farhan Akhtar the movie had everything that revolves around the life of youngsters. The best part was that almost everyone could relate him or her to the characters portrayed in the movie. The songs, the philosophy of each and every character, the historical Goa trip which later became a fad among friends, the pep-up – whether the attires or the urban lifestyle, the movie is a fantastic pull!

1. Rang De Basanti:
We blame the government, the politicians, the laws but how many times have we thought to bring about the change all by ourselves? Makes you think, right? That’s what RDB is all about. It makes you think while it inspires you, motivates you and most significantly tells you to stop blaming others. It gives you a message to bring up the revolution of change just like our leaders and freedom fighters did to gain Independence. One of the finest Bollywood movies in recent years, RDB is undoubtedly a classic and effortlessly deserves the number 1 spot on this list.
