The movie attracts every young heart’s temptation towards adventure, freedom, passion and some hard to handle love emotions.

Still glued to your screens? Call your besties and gift yourselves that much-needed break.
4. Tamasha (2015)
Some movies are more talked for their locations rather than stories. Tamasha is one belonging to such category. Where critics kept on talked in extremes about the movie’s good and bad, the stupendous locations of Corsica just made us fall in love with it. Along with phenomenol acting skills of both the lead actors (Ranbeer Kapoor and Deepika Padukone), the picture-perfect postcard backgrounds in the movie along with its addictive songs are the absolute ‘ga ga’ factor about the movie.
Its time explore an unexplored paradise. Corsica awaits you!
5. Dil Chahta hai (2001)
Dil chahta hai should officially be credited for making Goa the famous vacationing destination. Three besties rolling out for a road trip and sinning together creating some lifetime memories is such a great idea for a movie. And it did extremely well too. Even the thought of a Goa vacation with BFF’s raise our excitement levels. Yes, the mere thoughts about it because in reality, the conversion-to-reality factor for a Goa trip turns out quite low. And there are no real reasons found so far as to why are we depriving ourselves from such a worthy trip?
This time do not only make plans, execute them. Go get going to Goa!
6. Highway (2014)
Peeking over through the highest mountain peaks, standing alone amidst the wide span of deserts in front, running between the forests covered with greens around, trekking uphill with snow laden paths surrounding and looking over the calm sunsets in the evening, Highway depicts a spectacular journey which is not meant to end ever. The deep forests of unexplored Sangla valley and serene unspoilt Pahalgam leaves every viewer spellbounded.
Who knew kidnapping can be liberating! Get yourself trapped in the elegant valley views this season!
7. Jab we met (2007)
Owing to Kareena’s easy going “bhaag chalte hain” attitude, Jab we met showed the audience that escaping is the perfect solution for life’s every problem. Its famous dialogues, passion to follow one’s own choices and theme of traveling spaces inspired people a lot. Flaunting Shimla, Manali and Bhatinda like some dream vacationing places, the movie became one of those which are loved to be watched time and again.
Yes, those walls made of snow in the song “ye ishq haaye” were totally real. Why don’t you pay a visit to know yourselves?
8. DDLJ (1995)
We, the generation of 90’s, have grown up watching DDLJ to learn how to marry the college romances despite the denial of families. But keep apart that immortal love story for a moment, how can we forget about the Europe trip and its mesmerizing locations where the actual story started. And that romanticism of mustard fields in Punjab, that exists!
Europe is no less charming and romantic even now. Have you met the love of your life? Even if yes, your partner would never say no to relive DDLJ with you.
9. Piku (2015)
There must be some reason for we all love the road trips the most. The immense flexibility and freedom of choices it provides being one. Piku is the story of a father daughter duo taking a road journey together. A narrative of powerful connection and bond, the creation of new stories and beautiful countryside views of Varanasi and Kolkatta. The charm of satisfying the wanderlust by wandering over roads is something inexplicable and unmissable.
How have your road journeys been? Care to take one more?
