Movies about True Friendship – List You Cannot Ignore

Movies about True Friendship - Unmissable List Of Genuine Bonds

Dear Diary,

I adore listing movies about true friendship. And why not? I consider myself fortunate to be surrounded by incredible people who love me deeply. You could say that I am paying tribute to my fantastic friends. Let’s see, Diary, if our readers can relate to these movies in any way like they did for me!

Some fantastic movies about true friendship

I haven’t included Dil Chahta Hai and 3 Idiots in this list because they are already well-known to everyone. Instead, I’ve chosen to highlight some lesser-known movies about true friendship.

1.      Shawshank Redemption

You might wonder why this movie made the list. Isn’t it a prison break movie? At first glance, yes—but if you watch closely, you’ll see the profound friendship between Red (Morgan Freeman) and Andy (Tim Robbins). Every time I watch this film, the deep bond between these two characters truly touches my heart.

2.      Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

I cannot conclude this list without mentioning this particular film, which transcends the romantic subplot between the lead characters. This film starts and ends with the theme of pure friendship.

The bond between Aditi (Kalki Koechlin), Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor), Avi (Aditya Roy Kapoor), and, of course, Naina (Deepika Padukone) is a delight to witness. The dynamics among the group showcase a deep, evolving friendship that resonates well beyond the surface-level romance, making it a true testament to friendship in every sense.

3.      We Are Your Friends

This movie was never originally on my list. One fine day, as I was exploring Zac Efron’s filmography, I stumbled upon this film and decided to give it a watch. Initially, I was skeptical and found the beginning somewhat dull.

However, as the story progressed, the film completely captivated me. The bonding portrayed among the friends and the way the narrative unfolds is genuinely compelling. I am sure it will touch your heart and possibly bring you to tears, just as it did for me!

4.      Cocktail

Sometimes, it’s best not to mix romance with friendship, a theme beautifully highlighted in this film. The story chronicles the lives of three friends—Gautam (Saif Ali Khan), Meera (Diana Penty), and Veronica (Deepika Padukone).

As the plot unfolds, romance begins to creep in and challenges the dynamics of their friendship, providing a compelling narrative on how romantic entanglements can complicate platonic bonds. This film is a must-watch, not only for its poignant exploration of friendship and romance but also for the stupendous acting performances of all the leads.

5.      The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I have a soft spot for teen films and web series; they transport me back to my college days. This film did exactly that. Centered on young Charlie (Logan Lerman) in his first year of high school, the plot unfolds as he befriends two seniors—played by Emma Watson and Ezra Miller.

These friends stand by him, helping him navigate through life’s many challenges. Watching Charlie’s transformation and the experiences he encounters makes for a compelling narrative full of significant life lessons that resonate profoundly. This film is a heartfelt exploration of friendship, growth, and self-discovery.

6.      Ratatouille

Did you know Ratatouille is actually a French dish? That was a revelation for me! I always thought the name was simply a clever nod to the lead character, Remy, who happens to be a rat. But Remy is no ordinary rat—he is a gifted chef in hiding.

His culinary prowess is brilliantly supported by his best friend, Linguini, who provides Remy with the opportunity to showcase his skills in a prestigious kitchen. In return, Remy helps Linguini find success in life.

This film is a rare gem that beautifully illustrates true friendship, making it stand out among movies about true friendship. It’s a must-watch for its unique storyline and heartwarming depiction of camaraderie and mutual success.

7.      Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara

Raise your hand if you’ve seen this movie more than 20 times—I certainly have, and I’m sure many others have, too. More than just the picturesque locations and the dazzling display of handsomeness, this movie served as a reality check for me.

It perfectly showcases what true friendship is all about. I won’t give away much more, but I strongly urge you to watch this film if you haven’t already. It’s a profound reminder of the depth and strength that true friendships can reach, leaving a lasting impact on all who watch it!

8.      Harry Potter

There was a time when I wondered why people were so crazy about the Harry Potter series and books. I saw friends eagerly waiting in line to grab their first copies. However, as time passed, I, too, found myself enjoying the series and eventually started binge-watching it. I must have watched these films over 50 times by now.

But I must admit, these films are rich examples of true friendship. Throughout the series, Hermione and Ron (played by Emma Watson and Rupert Grint) never leave Harry’s (Daniel Radcliffe) side. They face numerous hurdles but remain united in their loyalty and support for one another. This enduring friendship is one of the foundational elements that makes the Harry Potter series so compelling and beloved.  

9.      Chhichhore

This movie is the epitome of love and beautifully illustrates how friends can enrich our lives. It revolves around Anni (Sushant Singh Rajput) and his gang of close friends. The plot thickens when Anni’s son, Raghav (Mohammad Samad), attempts suicide, prompting the gang to reunite. They come together to teach him that success isn’t solely about winning.

Amidst these events, the real winner is the deep friendship among the gang members. The way they rally around Raghav, offering support and cheering him up, truly highlights the profound and heartfelt connections they share. This film is a poignant reminder of the strength and comforts true friends bring into our lives.

10.  The Hot Chick

What if a beautiful girl accidentally swapped bodies with a 50+-year-old man? Sounds like a nightmare, right? That’s exactly the premise of The Hot Chick.

This film follows Jessica Spencer (played by Rachel McAdams), a mean-spirited cheerleader who switches bodies with Clive Maxtone (played by Rob Schneider), an incompetent criminal. Upon realizing the swap, she frantically searches for a way to switch back.

However, the true highlight of the film is the portrayal of friendship among Jessica’s friends. Their relentless efforts to restore their friend’s life capture the essence of true camaraderie and loyalty. The way they work together to switch the bodies back is both heartwarming and humorous. This movie is sure to make every girl appreciate her circle of friends even more!

11.  Bridesmaid

Who wouldn’t want to be a bridesmaid? I know I would love to! However, for Annie Walker (played by Kristen Wiig), the experience turns into a nightmare in the movie Bridesmaids. Annie faces a series of misfortunes that not only challenge her personally but also cause a rift within her circle of friends.

However, as the film unfolds, it beautifully demonstrates that authentic and genuine friendships can withstand even the most arduous trials. Through laughter and tears, the strength of their bond is ultimately reaffirmed. Trust me, this is one of the best movies about true friendship, perfectly blending humor with heartfelt moments. It’s a must-watch for its realistic portrayal of friendships.

12.      Kho Gaye Hum Kahaan

This movie had to be on the list. Instead of writing about it here – why don’t you read my full review!
