Listing to your favourite songs on a loop can tend to become monotonous at times. But the only way to break this monotony is by tuning to a radio station. Yes folks, when you tune in, only then you realize there exists hell lot of awesome songs-beyond your playlist.
As we celebrate World Radio Day, today, listed out are five good movies that had radio playing a major role in the film.
1. Tumhari Sulu:
Slightly crazy- slightly calm, Vidya Balan’s role in Tumhari Sulu attempts to break the stereotypes who cage housewife to look for only a specific kind of job. Call it her wit or her sensuous voice, Vidya's character leaves no stone unturned to charm you.
2. Salaam Namaste:
Independent and full of life, Preity Zinta with her beautiful voice takes the film to a totally new level. Pursuing the career in medical and simultaneously working as an RJ, this girl stands strong against all the storms that come her way.
3. Rang De Basanti:
Remember the last scene between Aamir and Siddharth? Quite an emotional one, right? Though the movie doesn’t revolve around ‘radio’ as a theme, the climax of the movie was shot in the FM station.
4. Lage Raho Munnabhai:
With her breakthrough voice when she tunes in saying- Good morning Mumbai, the entire city goes to a standstill for a while. With Vidya playing the role of RJ again, it is Sanjay Dutt and Mahatma Gandhi who are seen resolving personal issues of people’s lives- On Air.
Special mention, obviously. Yes, there was a movie called Radio which starred Himess Bhai and also had a song called- Mann ka radio, bajne de jara!
