Highway, which is directed by Imtiaz Ali, beautifully reels the remote Sangla valley in Himachal Pradesh and drives you over the Aru valley and Chandanwari near Pahalgam. Further, scenes were also shot along the road highways of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab. Highway is a collection of vistas that are enthralling enough to inspire you to drop everything else you're doing and venture out on a road trip.
2. Dil Chahta Hai:
Dil Chahta Hai basically defined the ‘epitome of coolness’. It also made a road trip Goa THE thing to do with your closest friends! I can actually imagine everyone humming the tune of the title track while imagining the shenanigans they would indulge in when they decide to take a trip and put a tick mark on their bucket list!
Darjeeling was always considered beautiful, but it was the adorable in Barfi who convinced us to pack our bags immediately and head to this remarkable hill-station! It takes you through the hill-station's misty mornings, muddy slopes and beautifully fenced pathways. The clock tower, the famous Glenary's Cafe and the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway—Barfi presents the hill town at its best.
4. Chennai Express:
Amidst the bundle of laughs and chaotic turns that stretch throughout Chennai Express, director Rohit Shetty gives his audience several spectacular landscapes to admire. Shot lavishly with aerial views, the majestic Dudhsagar Falls in Goa are a sight to behold. Besides the magnificent waterfall, the lush hill town of Munnar in Kerala was also a backdrop for major portions of the film.
5. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani:
Like Ranbir’s character everyone now wants to travel the world. But don’t forget, his heart finally ties him to India, because India is awesome!
Bordered by dense forests and sparkling in their white glory, Gulmarg's snow-clad peaks are as breathtakingly beautiful as they are adventurous. Even though Gulmarg was depicted as Manali in the first half of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ayan Mukerji's film not only unveiled these spectacular Himalayan landscapes but also inspired many folks to grab their backpacks and venture out on daunting treks. The film subsequently unfolds as a holiday romance in landmark heritage sites such as Hadimba Temple in Manali, Udaipur's City Palace and Chittorgarh Fort.
6. Jab We Met:
The movie Jab We Met whistles from the bustling city of Mumbai on a train where an acquaintance between Aditya Kashyap, played by the actor Shahid Kapoor, and Geet Dhillon, played by the actress Kareena Kapoor, moves through an adventurous journey. It reels from railway tracks to the hills of Himachal and snakes through the roads of Manali and Shimla. Thereafter, it also takes you to the rural aroma of Bhatinda, which is one of the oldest cities in Punjab. Some of the scenes were shot in Manali Castle, which is one of the popular landmarks in Manali, and ascends to Rohtang Pass at 3,948 meters, which lies on the Manali – Leh Highway.
The movie Kaal, which is directed by Soham Shah and produced by Shahrukh Khan, is one of the most thrilling bollywood flicks that pick a slice of wildlife in India. The film stars the notable actors from bollywood like Ajay Devgan, John Abraham, Vivek Oberoi, Esha Deol and Lara Dutta in lead roles. The fictional story, which is based on man eating tigers, takes you to a jeep safari in Corbett National Park, which is one of the popular national parks in India and is located in Uttarakhand.
8. Rang De Basanti:
A compelling film about the state of affairs in the nation, Rang De Basanti takes the viewers through an emotional as well as a visual journey. One of the most soul-stirring scenes is the ride around the iconic India Gate, and of course, the candle march. In addition to these, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's film also captures the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the Nahargarh Fort reservoir (where Aamir Khan and Sharman Joshi compete in a beer-gulp challenge), and the capital's winding alleys bathed in the winter-morning sunrise glow.
9. Three Idiots:
A light-hearted entertainer with a message, Rajkumar Hirani's 3 Idiots is shot across numerous scenic locales across India. From Chail Palace in Shimla (shown as Javed Jaffrey's residence) to the campus of Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (depicted as the Imperial College of Engineering, Delhi), the film is peppered with realistic locations. Shot at the Pangong Lake, the climax flaunts Ladakh's daunting peaks and turquoise-blue lakes.
A journey from Delhi to Kashmir, Kunal Kohli's Fanaa captures the best of both destinations. The first half of the film is a walk-through of Delhi's most stunning heritage sites. The leading pair of Aamir Khan and Kajol traverses from Qutab Minar, Red Fort, Humayun's Tomb to India Gate and Purana Qila (best seen in the song Chand Sifarish). In the latter half of the film, the action shifts to Kashmir's snow-laden Himalayan peaks and quaint wooden houses.
