Friday WatchAlong: Christmas Movies Marathon Starts!!!! What Christmas Movie Should We Watch This Week/Next 4 Weeks?

Christmas season officially starts THIS FRIDAY!!!! So I want to watch Christmas Movies. By a broad definition of including at least one scene that is Christmas related, OR being about Illegitimate Babies.

As I see it, there are two kinds of Christmas Movies in Indian film. The kind that has a specific Christmas reference, like Malang which specifically takes place over Christmas in Goa complete with Santas. Or the kind that has a general “miracle illegitimate baby” reference.

So here’s what I have come up with so far:

Malang

Drugs, vengeance, sex, and SANTAS!

Malang (film) - Wikipedia

Kaho Na Pyar Hai

Santa! And also, reincarnation (sort of)

Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai - Lifetime Box Office Collection, Budget, Reviews,  Cast, etc

Aradhana

Magical illegitimate baby

Aradhana (1969) - IMDb

Zindagi Na Milagi Dobara

Farhan Akhtar=Jesus, Naseeruddin Shah=God

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Movie Poster – My Hot Posters

Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna

There’s a Christmas sequence in the middle of a song, close enough

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) - IMDb

Premam

I may be wrong, but I think there is a little bit where they talk about celebrating Christmas?

Premam - Wikipedia

Can you think of any others? And which do you want to watch this Friday? Or Saturday?

    • Hrithik is great, and there’s the whole “Santa counting down to midnight on Christmas Eve and then we all kiss” sequence, which I find very Christmassy in the best pagan way.

      • It is funny, Parineeti is actually good. One male lead but TONS of strong female leads. But heads up – With vacations and tree getting and hubby’s birthday I have no confidence that I can actually watch this week. But I never know, so maybe! Alas the scene I posted was a total spoiler, didn’t realize you hadn’t seen it. Sorry.

        • I mean, I did already spoil myself, so no big worries.

          I know the truth, now that you have won a card there is no more enticement for you to come to watchalongs!

          • Oh my gosh. Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl. I was watching that and may have forgotten to finish it? Could be a fun one. Good actors doing kind of over the top roles and having a good time.

          • Woo-hoo! Looking more and more like Friday afternoon then, since that’s Courtney’s preference.

  1. We could watch War for the millionth time because of that one Christmas scene with Hrithik and Tiger and that little girl.

    In doing research, apparently there were small Christmas scenes in 2 States and Dilwale

    But I also support Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl! That movie is so fun!

    • I forgot that War has a Christmas scene! For sure going on the list.

      Ladies Vs Ricky Behl, excellent, and would you prefer Friday or Saturday?
