Its a rough phase sitting back home all day long, or rather days long. Let's admit, we all love being couch potatoes to some extent but the state lockdown owing to Coronavirus spur across the globe feels like we've landed up in a situation like Rajkummar Rao's film Trapped wherein he is locked up in his house alone. Thankgod we have family and of course! our phones and laptops with us. Poor guy did not even have the Wifi. 

We've all had plans getting cancelled during this while. Some of us couldn't go for the vacation that we had been planning for long, some are celebrating their birthday alone exactly the opposite of what they had planned for their eve, some wanted to go dance their heart out at the club on the weekend and more sad stories. We've clearly not in the best mood but we're all in this together. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has imposed 21 days lockdown in the entire country to protect the citizens from further spread of Coronavirus. 

Now that we've got 21 days of house arrest, courtesy COVID-19, here's a list of some feel-good movies for you to cheer up your mood during the social distancing phase:

Isn't That Romantic

What's better than a rom-com and a tub of icecream to lift up the mood? The interesting thing about the film is that it is a rom-com within a rom-com. Yes, you heard that right! Natalie, an architect, shuts all doors for love as she feels being oversized, she would never be able to find love. She nitpicks everything about her life and suddenly wakes up in an alternate universe only to find that she is playing the leading lady in a real-life romantic comedy.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

The best guilty pleasure for sure! Rebecca Bloomwood is every woman ever as whenever she sees a shopping mall and can't stop! She is addicted to shopping and accepts a job as a finance columnist to clear a big debt off her head. Amidst the hustle, she finds herself falling in love with her boss.


The Ranbir Kapoor starrer is a light-hearted film that can make anyone smile. Barfi, a mute and deaf man abducts an autistic girl Jhilmil and demands a ransom for his father's surgery. Meanwhile, he falls in love with her which makes his ex-lover rethink her own marriage. The pure, unfiltered love between Barfi and Jhilmil is beyond words and Ranbir Kapoor's acting is like a cherry on the cake.


The film sums up our life right now. Rajkummar Rao goes to see a new flat and gets locked up inside. His phone's battery dies and he is left trapped in the abandoned flat with no food and water. The windows have a grill and the door is locked, there's no other way to get out of the house. Doesn't it sound similar to quarantine?

We're The Millers

A rib-tickling comedy that you can watch with your full family. David, a drug dealer, is forced by his boss to smuggle drugs from Mexico. In order to execute his plan, he hires a stripper who is also a petty thief and a teenage neighbour, forming a fake family who helps him smuggle the drugs.

A must in your watchlist! Bala revolves around a young man suffering from premature baldness.
