7 Life Lessons From Bollywood

Who says you can’t learn something from movies? The Hindi film industry popularly known as “Bollywood” has time and again demonstrated that when you step into a movie theatre with that buttery tub of popcorn, starry eyes & invincible curiosity, you end up taking back with you a lot more than what you expected. Here are 7 transformative Hindi film dialogues that taught us all something:

“Insaan ko dibbe mein bas tab hona chahiye, jab woh marr chuka ho.”

– Laila, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara (2011)

Listen to Laila! Don’t postpone life. Live in the NOW, life is happening to you as you read this. 


“Jis kaam mein maza aaye usse apne profession banalo. Phir kaam, kaam nahi, khel lagega.”

-Rancho, 3 Idiots (2009)

One of the greatest mantras. Follow your passion–your dream, and you won’t even realise when you start enjoying the journey.


“Jab apne aap ko pyaar karne lagte hain, toh wohi puraani zindagi nayi lagne lagti hai, achhi lagne lagti hai.”

-Shashi, English Vinglish (2012)

The importance of self-love can’t be better depicted than this dialogue. Prioritising and loving yourself helps you gain a new confidence towards your life. Well said, Shashi!


“Agar khul kar ro nahi sakogi, toh khul kar has kaise paaogi.”

-Dr. Jug, Dear Zindagi (2016)

We are living a rollercoaster and till we’re not able to accept and express our truest emotions, how will we pave way for happier horizons? And when you’ve got Dr. Jug saying it like that, it makes you want to listen to it even more, doesn’t it? 


“Koi zarurat nahi kisi aur ke kehne pe apne sky ka colour change karne ki. Har ek ka apna sky hota hai. Tumhare sky ka colour jo bhi ho, aur tum jo bhi karna chahte ho, kar sakte ho.”

Aditi, The Sky Is Pink (2019)

The title of this film & this very dialogue is a metaphor for life. Don’t design your life based on anybody else’s expectations. This is your path and your story. So live, love, laugh and relish it as per YOU.


“Kahin pahunchne ke liye, kahin se nikalnaa bahut zaruri hota hai.”

-Bunny, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013)

Preach, Bunny! Letting go, walking away or evolving is the biggest sign of growing as a person and should be accepted and celebrated. That’s how you’ll experience new beginnings.


“Dil mein jo hai who bol dena chahiye, aise dabake nahi rakhna chahiye acidity ho jaati hai.”

-Nina, Cheeni Kum (2007)

Something that can’t be emphasised enough. Keeping everything inside of us takes us nowhere expect to that rabit hole of overthinking. Yes, it can be tough at times, but say it, because once you do, you’ll feel lighter and heave a sigh of relief.

“When something unexpected hits us, we’re faced with the choice of it controlling our lives or starting afresh.

“As a style of yoga, Yin is unique. She targets the bones, ligaments & joints aiming to guide you to their feelings & how to connect those to your emotions. Her method sounds easier said than done: holding a few seated poses for at least 2-3 minutes, paying complete attention to yourself.”


“People had to engage with each other through small video boxes on screen and zoom “parties” and “meetings” were commonplace. My friend whose family is scattered all around the world and country, told me excitedly how a nephew would organise Sunday zoom parties.”
