Bollywood movies to get over a breakup

Falling in love is something different but being committed and taking vows with your loved one is something more important. The love-breakup story is quite common these days since nobody is ready to commit. It is true that breakups are never easy. The end of a relationship can flip your world upside down and trigger a range of emotions. Some people quickly accept the demise of a relationship and move on, but others may deal with depression.

This can be a heartbreaking time, and it can feel as if your world is falling apart. But while sadness and a heightened emotional state are normal reactions after a breakup, there are some who are not able to deal with the problem and end up taking a drastic step.

 Dear Zindagi

Kiara seeks therapy for one major problem in her life which happened to be her abandonment. That was probably the sole reason on why she was unable to hold on to any of her relationships. The movie clearly brings us to the idea of learning who we are as a human, to dig deeper within our own self before distressing over the failed relationships we have had. This film is just the right thing to help you learn the skill.


Tamasha is the story of a man who’s broken by the factory settings of modern life. Ranbir Kapoor plays Ved who meets Tara played by Deepika Padukone, on a holiday. They hit it off and meet up again back in Delhi. They fall in love and their relationship seems to be going at a glacial pace. The boredom gets to Tara and she decides to call it off. Ved is upset, but the breakup isn’t the biggest hurdle his character faces by a stretch. The way the breakup is placed in the entire narrative for both people makes it look like a part and parcel of the new normal of being a youth in urban India. While there could have been countless melodramas made just about the love story, the film chooses to treat the breakup as just one part of the slice of life it’s trying to portray.
