5 Reasons why summers is the best season of the year

Believe it or not, summer is the best season there is to be outdoors and live life fully. After chilling winters, summers come as a blessing adorned with the hope of living our wishes, contently.

Planning for summer is always fun as there is so much to get your hands on and well, the season lasts for just 3 short months. It is a season to frolic and Dharma movies bring you some of the best ways to enjoy it.

Let’s pack our bags with few Dharma ideas:

1. The season of colors is just around the corner and so is your heart dancing to enjoy the day with your loved ones.

2. Summer brings along with it brightness, awesomeness and liveliness. You can’t wait to flaunt your fashion sense with the summer shopping you just finished.

3. Outdoor sport activities are best complemented with summer. Go hiking in the mornings and swimming in the evenings. The weather and the water is just the right temperature.

4. Night camping and mountain trekking was never so much fun. Grab a pair of sneakers and step out into the world of adventure, only in summer.

5. The best part about summer is – it’s holiday time! Schools and colleges rest. Kids are hyperactive. Plan the family holiday you've been waiting for.

And if you are too lazy to step out, stir yourself a fruit smoothie and watch a movie. A family drama such as K3G or a love-hit like KKHH can be a super treat.

Dharma Directors

Dharma Productions has been the breeding ground for many successful directors. Many young and new directors have worked with Dharma Productions and delivered blockbusters that we crave to watch the minute we can.

These directors are a boiling pot of the age-old traditions of film-producing plus the demand of the new generation. They are faces of freshness that is now molding films to match 21st century audience tastes. There has been tremendous change in the way Indian cinema is perceived and that’s because, well, our new age directors are game for challenges.


The result is well received; viewers today have much appreciated the new face of cinema and yes, rest is history. Remarkable tales with staggering performances from actors has just altered the course for Indian cinema. Never-before-heard-or-seen stories played with astonishing brilliance is a cup of tea for Indian stars and this much is now world-wide known and accepted. But the brains that go behind the story, screening, direction, production, casting, etc. is what has made all the difference.

With films like ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ – Shashank Khaitan, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ – Ayan Mukherjee, and 'Hasee Toh Phasee' - Vinil Mathew, we know that Indian cinema is transforming for good with a whip of modernity and genuinity.

Viewers, young and old, have acknowledged this change and much of the credit goes to Dharma productions for launching such talented budding directors. We wish them luck in their future endeavors.

#RomanticDialogues with Dharma

Dharma has been synonymous with the feeling of love for decades now. Movies like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ have become cult classics of the romantic genre. A large part of that success can be attributed to the mesmerizing dialogues that have been etched in the minds of the people.

It’s the characters that have made the dialogues memorable and when it comes to romance, how can one forget Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan). Rahul’s earnestness when he says “Kuch kuch hota hai Anjali, tum nahi samjhogi” Brought tears to the eyes of the young and the old. In ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ Rohit’s (Saif Ali Khan) heartfelt way of describing love “Pyar ka pehla kadam dosti hai, aur aakhri bhi… bas beech ke kadam reh gaye hain” is also not far off.

While the superstars SRK, Saif, Rani and Preity have had their fair share of glory. The budding stars of B-Town are not far behind. While playing Meeta, Parineeti Chopra’s dialogue “Tum oxygen aur main hydrogen… hamari chemistry ekdum pani ki tarah hai” in ‘Hasee to Phasee’ brought a smile to the faces and changed the outlook towards the term chemistry forever.

From the outright passionate to the twisted funny, romantic dialogues of Dharma movies continue to make people fall in love. While the actors have beautifully enacted these dialogues on screen, the wonderful teams of writers have weaved their magic in the form of words time and again and deserve the highest of credit.

So, join in the fun as we bring the curtains down on the month of love and let us know your favourite romantic dialogues in the comment section below.

Coz for Love… One day is Simply Not Enough

We think we all know about ‘Love’, the all consuming feeling that enthralls you. We carry it around thinking about it time and time again and yet we face a hollowness of sorts. Why so? We have ended up putting so many restrictions that we now have a nominated day of love i.e 14th of February. But, is this the right way to go?

The instances area plenty, we only need to open our eyes and see the magic unfolding in front of us. The mother’s warmth when she holds her child, a tight hug from a long lost friend, the smitten lovers holding hands, you name it and it’s there. It is this tingling sensation that we need to hold on to and celebrate.

Movies like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ have set a benchmark in terms of capturing the imagination of the young and old. But, it is the underlying message of love and eternal bliss that we often miss out on.  It is precisely what the world needs and celebration of love is the remedy.

But, it’s not all about roses and rainbows. Even science has its take on the feeling of love. The important point being love induces certain happy hormones that keep you in a state of great mental and physical health. All the more reason, to spread the message across on a daily basis.

While there can be a laundry list of reasons that can be given to indulge in this sensation, King Khan sums it up brilliantly in one of his dialogues in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, “Hum ek baar jeete hai. Ek baar marte hai. Aur pyar bhi ek hi baar hota hai.” So, do away with the constraints because for love, one day is simply not enough.

5 Reasons why ‘Pooh’ is the Ultimate Style Icon

 Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham was a runaway hit with theatre halls flooded with die-hard fans, in India and the rest of the world. It’s true; no other family drama has been as successful as this one. The glamorous Raichand family has set the bar very high for movies in the league. And even today, 14 years later, the deeply sentimental drama continues to entertain hearts.

Many reasons why this is still a people pleaser. The movie is a stand-alone entertainer with not a moment out of place. The mega-star cast, the costumes, the setting, the London-tadka, the melodious songs, the lavish sets, everything was just so…yum! But what really stood out was the introduction of Kareena Kapoor Khan as ‘Pooh’, the Fashion Diva for generations to come.

So, here are 5 reasons why Pooh is the ultimate style icon.

1. She is the ‘Queen’, no matter where, no matter what.

2. Follows her dreams relentlessly.

3. Does not care about what the world thinks.

4. Self-regard is high up there.

5. And, the world, just totally absolutely, revolves around her.

Well, that’s Pooh who charms everyone around and that is why, even today, we find a ‘Pooh’ in every young girl we come across.
