An inherently wrong person falls in love with a faultless, excellent person. Despite their differences, they fall in love. It’s one of the most prominent storylines of several Bollywood movies. And, it works like a magical charm.
Why does the bad guy fall for a good girl?
- The right person finds a hidden gem that resides deep in the heart of the bad one that the world is unaware of
- Opposites attract theory. It’s as simple as that.
- True love brings out the goodness in the wrong persons’ heart. Do you know how only some people can bring out the light from the depth of darkness that lives inside you? Yes, the same way.
Here are the top five movies that have monetized on this cliché but extremely loved the storyline
- Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
A class-flunker and beer snatcher, Raj falls head-over-heels in love with Simran, who is her father’s pride. So Raj fixes his careless lifestyle to become a better man for the woman of his dreams.
Kidnapped by Beera, this movie goes beyond the issue of Stockholm Syndrome, as Raagini falls in love with him. She discovers the good parts that exist amongst the bad parts in Beera, something that Raagini’s husband and his entire police department missed to observe.
Another movie of Stockholm Syndrome but again goes way deeper than just that. Veera falls for her kidnapper Mahabir and discovers a different kind of freedom, one she hadn’t ever experienced around her own family.
- Tanu Weds Manu Series
Tanu’s craziness complemented Manu’s patience perfectly. While she got her husband to a mental asylum, Manu still loved her with all he had.
- Dev D
Both Chanda and Dev were the bad boy and bad girl, but somehow their love brings out the best in each other and makes their love a realistic watch.
