Nothing quite compares to the emotional impact of a Bollywood film. Even if you’ve never been to Mumbai, seeing a Bollywood film about the city will make you feel like you’ve been there for real. Seeing the places you’ve been and the food you’ve eaten will help you connect with the film. Here are a few masterpieces that perfectly captured the grit and grace of Mumbai.

The Lunchbox

Dabbawalas are a novel take on Mumbai’s many well-known attractions. They ensure that people receive their lunches on schedule. The wrong package was delivered, leading to an adorable love tale between two people who communicate via letters in dabbas. Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui star in this heart-warming film.

Wake Up Sid

This is something that most people can connect with. Sid, a former pampered brat, meets a new girl in town. This city of dreams is where they may find themselves, and we get to experience that enchantment through the pleasant neighborhood, the rain in Mumbai, and the battles on Marine Drive. This is a great movie to watch when you’re feeling down and out.

Shor In The City

People in Mumbai are the focus of this fascinating narrative. Sendhil Ramamurthy, Radhika Apte, Preeti Desai, and Tusshar Kapoor are the actors in this account of the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations in Mumbai. Song lyrics will stay with you long after the film has ended.

City Lights

The film City Lights shows migration to cities like New York and Los Angeles. In this replica of Metro Manila, you’ll see what life is like for the many dreamers who flock to the metropolis. Patralekha and Rajkumar Rao front this cast.

Commuter trains in Mumbai are the focus of the film. A train scheduled to depart at 1:40 a.m. fails to show up, causing a chain of events that reunites two people. In your life, an unanticipated and unwelcome development turns out to be a gift from the universe.

Life In A Metro

Anurag Basu’s film depicts the lives of nine people in Mumbai as they battle with issues of heartbreak, affairs, marriage, and loneliness. This video does the best job of capturing the hustle and bustle of a big metropolis. You’ll want to watch it again and again because of the fantastic melodies and stellar actors.

Jane TuYaJaane Na

This one is an exceptional movie because college life is nothing like what we see in films. If you’ve ever been out with your buddies in Mumbai, you’ll know where to go. Bandra Fort, the Asiatic Library, Gateway Lane, and the sea were all walking distance from where we shot JaaneTuYaJaane Na.
