Today I will complete this fun tag:


This s an original tag, so feel free to use it :)

Welcome to my world filled with Bollywood obsession!

I absolutely love Bollywood and India, and my biggest dream is to travel there, so today I will give you few of my most beloved movies!

1. Devdas

Devdas is a 2002 Indian romantic drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and based on the 1917 Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay's novel Devdas. This is the third Hindi version and the first film version of the story in Hindi done in colour.The film follows Devdas a wealthy law graduate in the early 1900s, who returns from his studies in London to marry his childhood sweetheart, Paro.  However, the rejection of this marriage by his own family sparks his descent into alcohol, ultimately leading to his emotional deterioration and him seeking refuge with a prostitute, Chandramukhi

2. Veer-Zaara

Set against the backdrop of conflict between India and Pakistan, this epic star-crossed romance follows the unfortunate love story of Veer Pratap Singh, an Indian Air Force pilot and Zaara Hayaat Khan, a Pakistani woman hailing from a rich political family of Lahore, who are separated for 22 years. Saamiya Siddiqui, a Pakistani lawyer, finds Veer in prison and upon listening to his story, tries to get him freed.

 3. Lootera

Lootera, (Robber), is a 2013 Indian period romance film directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and partly based on author O. Henry's 1907 short story The Last Leaf.
  In the picturesque town of Manikpur, West Bengal in 1953, a landlord goes to watch a Chhau dance with his daughter, Pakhi Roy Chaudhary  an aspiring writer. After Pakhi has an asthma attack from the ensuing excitement, she is rushed home and given medication. As she recuperates, her father comforts her and narrates the story of the invincible king of the Bheel tribe whose soul resided inside a parrot, telling her that she is the parrot within whom his life resides. One day, while learning to drive a car, Pakhi accidentally bumps into a motorcycle and mildly injures a handsome youth. A few days later, the same youth introduces himself to the landlord as Varun Shrivastav an archaeologist who wants to study the land surrounding the temple that the landlord owns.

 4. Goliyon ki Rasleela Ram-Leela

During the festival of Holi, Ram boldly enters the house of the Sanera heads and flirts with Leela  while her mother, Dhankor Baa  the chieftain of the Saneras, is busy arranging a match for her daughter with a simple-minded NRI. Leela's elder brother Kanji  is angered by Ram's entry in the house and bribes the local police to raid Ram's house. Ram, however, manages to convince the policemen to leave in exchange for a set of his blue films. Ram and Leela develop a romance and plan to elope but a grim turn of events follows when Kanji accidentally kills Meghji and is in turn killed by Ram.
This is based on Romeo and Juliet.

5. Bajiro Mastani

In the early 18th century, the court of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shahu (Mahesh Manjrekar) needs a new Peshwa, the equivalent of a modern-day prime minister. A young Bajirao  is given the title of Peshwa. Ten years later, his wife Kashibai whose husband was accused of spying and was ordered to be executed by Bajirao. She predicts that just as she longs for her husband, Kashibai will yearn for Bajirao.
While travelling to Sironja, an emissary from Bundelkhand enters Bajirao's tent and demands his help to fight invaders. She reveals herself to be Mastani the daughter of the Hindu Rajput king. Impressed by her skills as a warrior, Bajirao assists her with his army and defeats the invaders. Mastani and Bajirao fall in love with each other.
6. Padmavati
The film is based on the legend of Rani Padmavati, a legendary Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Avadhi language epic poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540.
According to Padmavat, she was the wife of Ratan Sen the Rajput ruler of Mewar. In 1303, Alauddin Khilji, the Turko-Afghan ruler of the Delhi Sultanate, laid siege to the Chittor Fort in Rajputana, motivated by his desire to capture Rani Padmavati. 
The men of the city stormed out in a final mortal sally to kill as many of the enemy before falling. Rani Padmavati is said to have committed jauhar (self-immolation) along with all the other women of the city to protect their honour and to avoid being captured by Khilji. 
 As you might noticed a lot of these movies are directed by Sanjay Leela Bansali, who is my favorite Indian director. So I leave you with a song from Padmavati, that is literally taking over my life now!!!!!

We hope you enjoyed the tag as much as we did  while doing it!
