When it comes to family equations in love stories, feuding families opposing to love birds is one of the most sure-shot formulas that work even today. We’ve all been suckers for romances where the poor star-crossed lovers are forced to rebel against their own families so as to have a happily ever after. Many movies and shows in the past have explored this particular idea in different ways and it’s time we reminisce a few of them.
Check out the trailer for the Season 2 of Jamai 2.0:
Jamai 2.0 is the story of Sidharth and Roshi, popularly known as #SidNi and how twisted their love lives become because of their family equations. Sid, who is a man with a plan, is here to get his sister’s murderers out from hiding and destroy Durga Devi Patel, aka DD. On contrary to his plans, Sid ends up falling for DD’s daughter Roshni and things take a turn from thereon. Despite the hatred Sid has for Roshni’s mom, the passionate love and sizzling chemistry between #SidNi is something that has already secured a place for them in the audience’s heart. When all cards are on the table, what will they choose #LoveOrFamily? To find out watch the season 2 premiering on 26th February.
Though the latest release by actor-filmmaker, Mahesh Manjrekar is a distinct take on the 1972 American classic, The Godfather, The Power retains its originality with the intense love story surrounding the plot combined with the action-packed performance by Vidyut Jamwal. Set against a gangster/underworld backdrop, Devidas and Parveen fall in love with each other, but their happiness is short-lived as they get involved in a resentful conflict due to their warring families.
Director Manish Tiwary’s Indian adaptation of William Shakespeare’s romantic epic, Romeo and Juliet, was set amidst the sand mafia of modern-day Banaras. Two influential Banarasi families, Kashyaps and Mishras are at war with each other for the sand mafia trade, while their children Bachchi and Rahul, portrayed by Prateik Babbar and Amyra Dastur, fall for each other. What comes next is, of course, the rebel by the love birds.
The multi-starrer, Saudagar is centred around the rivalry between Veer Singh (Dilip Kumar) and Rajeshwar Singh (Raaj Kumar), two childhood friends who turned sworn enemies. What happens when their grandkids fall in love is what follows the plot. Saudagar is one of the most ideal examples of lovers affected by their families. It is also the film that gave the new generation a different way of declaring their love, by saying ‘ILU ILU‘.
Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak
How can we talk about epic love stories and not include Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak in the list? This iconic film from the 80’s Bollywood, inspired by Romeo and Juliet, is a story of two lovers whose families share an ugly past. The movie popularly known as QSQT was a huge success at the box office.
