The pandemic life is becoming the new ‘normal’ and all of us, regardless of our age and occupation, are trying extremely hard to adjust and live a life with this ‘new normal’ tag being attached to everything. Offices are all working from home, school and college students are trying to find their way through online classes, even doctor appointments have gone digital. If you’re a college student who probably was looking forward to heading back to university, making an insane number of plans of upgrading that wardrobe, cajoling your parents into buying you a new phone, I feel the pain of not being able to take that drive everyday. The whole spotting of your crush and smiling, bunking lectures to sip coffee with friends, matching outfits and deciding where to hang out after classes, life is suddenly mundane and no students deserve it. Anyway, here are few movies that can help you catch a ‘vibe’ of college life as you continue attending classes online:
1.Dil Chahta Hai – Trust the classics to always get you in the ‘feel’ of whatever emotion you want to vibe with. DCH is basically history written down in all our hearts.
From dreaming of wooing a girl at a random bar to planning those innumerable Goa plans with friends, DCH has given everyone a reason to love it. College life is fun if you have memories like these.
2. 3 Idiots- Though it was based on a book and the life lessons learnt in it are a separate topic altogether, lets not forget how nostalgic it made us feel when we watch people running in corridors, bunking lectures or simply ragging each other in the hostel dorm. If college is not opening anytime soon, then this movie will surely make you miss it.
3. Chhichore- Probably the most relatable to all of us in the current scenario. The movie has friends take a trip down the memory lane and reminisce about the good old days of college life , something that we all have been doing at work as we all share memories from college with our colleagues.
4.Dil Dosti Etc- One movie which created some strong ripples when it was released but failed to be a commercial hit. Dil Dosti Etc is a very relatable movie for everyone who’s experienced college life at DU. Student politics, the canteen in colleges, amateur relationships, this movie shows the real scene of how a typical student union ran in a DU college.
5.Ishq Vishk- A very old movie indeed and Shahid’s debut as well. This movie came at a time when most of us were very young, still wondering how college life would be. The whole glitz and glamour of a college festival, the young bubbling romance, cheating in exams, though painted very nicely, this is a good watch for getting that ‘college vibe’.
6.Fukrey- The super hit ‘jodi’ of Chucha and Hunny are basically the kind of ‘friendship goals’ we all aspire to have in life.

This is the kind of movie that showcases the array of fun that awaits you when you plan to get into the same college with your best friend from school and weave plans of all the ‘masti’ that awaits you.
