Bollywood is a Mecca for all things cheese burst and utterly butterly romantic. But some things definitely need to be given a much deeper thought when it comes to taking an inspiration for some real-life romance. Actually just a little bit of common sense will also do, to make you understand how hopeless and seriously self-destructive it would be to follow these dumb but supposedly romantic movies.
1. Getting saucy in your BF’s hostel (2 States)
As sad or disappointing as it may sound, but the truth is actually this: Sweety, you can’t just pop into a guy’s hostel without being seen by the warden, rather skinned by her, past your beau’s hostel mates, away from their prying eyes and ears (and cameras) and get sweaty in his room.. And forget shifting there with your stuff, temporary or not!
2. Ditching your girl to tango with her bestie (Cocktail)
When you have shared one room (and one toothbrush) with your chick, there is no chance you can just pack your stuff and shift to another across the hall, into her bestie cum house-mate’s room. Reason? First, your girl has nails and teeth and second, even the bestie can bite. Why would she like a guy who slept with her best friend and is now flirting with her!
3. Singing a song about how you got laid (Ishaqzaade)
All right, so you can’t sing. But you can speak, right? This still applies anyway. Don’t dare tell your bedtime stories to your gang. There’s no way your girl is going to happily dance around with you raunchily then. But she’ll definitely make sure there are no more tales to be written from then onwards.
4. Breaking up and then having an affair old-ishtyle (Love Aaj Kal)
Once you break up and move on, you move on. You do not mess up with your dream job, fly off to another country and then mess your ex’s head up too, only to have her break down and then break her marriage as well! And who’s to blame? Your dumb idea of ‘break up ke baad wala old-ishtyle affair’!
5. Getting your roomie a baby bump (Salaam Namaste)
First off all, it’s really not cool to do anything without protection. And second, never expect her to silently go ahead and have the baby. You have equally contributed towards it…remember? So, if you take her down, she’ll drown you too with her.
6. Pretending to be someone else to get in her pants (Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein)
Okay, there’s one flash and you know you like this babe dancing (God knows why in the rain with bunch of kids). Then what you do, go around flirting and messing around, imposing as her to-be hubby? Cool…except it’s not. She’ll not only distrust you thereafter and have you beaten up by her real fiancÃ© but also get a restraining order from the court!
7. Trying one-night stand with your business partner (Band Baaja Baaraat)
Never heard of the phrase, ‘Never mix business with pleasure’? Mess up with her only if you know for sure that she doesn’t want to make tea for you every morning.
8. Running out on him/her (Shuddh Desi Romance)
If you’re allergic to marriage, better let her/him know it… much beforehand. Even if she’s open to live-in relationship, it’s highly unlikely she’ll also be open to you ditching her on her wedding night and then convincing her to move in again with you. And no, she may not talk to you ever again.
9. Recording your private moments (Race)
You will never find any sensible girl who will be okay with you filming your bedroom adventures with her and letting your sick brother watch the live streaming of the dirty video!
