I promised to do this list after we watched Bajrangi Bhaijaan and felt all good about good people doing good things and cute little girls. And I am finally getting around to it!
Small children being helped along in their journey by kind strangers, happy ending, nice things, and tough gypsy ladies! Oh, and SRK.
Such a gorgeous film! Set in the Kashmir lakes, with little kids, and a nice message of peace and love and care winning out. Plus a really nice romance.
The inspiration! Nice people all over the place doing nice things for a cute cute cute little mute girl.
4 brothers from the wrong side of town who end up finding their heart and strength and opening their home to all the waifs of the region.
Khamoshi the Musical
Bhansali’s only good movie, so far as I am concerned. A sweet small town Goa story about the hearing daughter of two deaf parents.
Chak De India
Shahrukh! And tough women who succeed against all odds, and SPORTSMANSHIP!!!
Shahrukh! And a bunch of other people doing the right thing to help folks in a village, that also has small children.
Branching out from India and over to Australia. Such a lovely lovely movie, impossible to watch without smiling.
And over to Hollywood! One of the most accepting loving family movies ever. All about the sacrifices we make for those we love.
Those are the only ones I can think of that reach up to the happy heights of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. But as a bonus, here are the ones I considered and rejected!
Gangsters, millionaires, young flyers, young actresses, all coming together to fight the Nazis. And there’s Alan Arkin.
Madhuri!!! Being bright and enthusiastic and bringing the joy of art to a small town.
Sridevi! Being supported by nice teachers and friends and folks and she learns to find her voice.
Veere Di Wedding
Female friendship, helping each other, nice good supportive partners, and a tiny little boy.
The artist succeeds against all odds! The music takes him away! It all works out for the best!
