Have you ever concentrated on a movie's background? The beaches with delicate sand and clear blue water, the hero-heroine passing luscious greenery or mountains topped with ice peaks and layers of snow as far as the eye can see? As important as the storyline is, the destination plays an underrated part in moving the plot along as well.
This month's theme is 'heat', and when we think about heat, vacations is the first word that comes to our minds. Therefore, BollyCurry brings to you selected movies where actors are shown going on a holiday. So read on and let your imaginations holiday.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge - The perfect tale of love. One trip that changed everything. What would be more perfect than a romantic holiday in Switzerland, just like in the movie, where two strangers meet in a foreign country and fall in love. Imagine romancing on top of a snowy mountain alps, or driving through Switzerland's green farms while looking into your loved one's eyes. Throw in a several days at cozy resorts and a camp outside and we're set. Just like Shah Rukh Khan playing the role of Raj and Simran played by Kajol Devgn did. After this evergreen movie was released, Switzerland became a hot vacation spot for lovers, boosting the countries tourist economy. Visit the timeless Switzerland and get lost in your loved ones arms.

Dil Chahta Hai - The tale of three bachelors going on a trip to Goa. All three single and an ocean of girls to choose from. Goa is the home of the best beaches in the world and is undoubtedly one of the hottest vacations spots you can find. Along with that, you also have the Chapora fort, also known as the Dil Chahta Hai fort, which rose to fame after the film was released and got subsequently renamed. This was a vacation that change the lives of the three young men in this movie essayed by Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Khanna. To calm their anger and nerves and for time alone to think, this was the perfect place where the constant swooshing of the waves as the water kissed the shore shared their sentiments. The location was the perfect spot to show the end of the party life for these single men who return to their home just as the sun sets.

Dhoom 2 - Dhoom 2 was the first Bollywood movie to have been shot in Rio De Janerio, Brazil. But along with Brazil, the cast had gone to shoot in other hot locations including, Namibia and Durban in Africa as well as Mumbai in India, which had been extremely scorching. Light brown sand that feels so soft under your feet, and the crystal blue water that tempts you to take a dip was how half of the cast had entered the movie. Along with the bright sun, the moonlit nights captured the beauty of nature at it's rawness as well. The film showcased many activities, rapidly increasing the popularity of roller-blading, sand boarding and snow boarding.

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
- The film was the road trip of a lifetime where three friends reunite after years to embark on a road trip in Spain. Three destinations of their choice and one adventurous trip that made them face their deepest fears. Four cities including Costa Brava, Seville, Valencia and Pamplona were visited in three short weeks. As they cruise by the sunny roads of Spain, you can just look back and feel the heat. They land up on a beach in Costa Brava, where they go deep sea diving. The sea blue water, and the life of the underwater just makes you dream away, making a certain calmness fill you. The friends make a stop for the Tomatina festival (tomato fight purely for fun) in Bunyol, Valencia before they move onto the next city, Seville, where they go sky diving. Up they go, between the clouds, and you see Seville as a whole and finally falling right into the arms of the city. The last leg of their trip brings them to Pamplona and here they participate in one of the most dangerous activities - Bull Run. Along with these cities, there are short glimpses of Barcelona, Andalusia and United Kingdom shown in the rushes as well.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - Last in the list we have this year's blockbuster movie, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.  A movie that brought to us snowy hills and colorful springs. To explore the Himalaya mountains, the lead couple, played by Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor, along with their friends, go on an exciting hiking trip to Manali where they redefine their relationships. Snowy mountains makes your eyes widen as the actors playfully dive into the huge layers of snow. If that wasn't enough, the actors play Holi on the streets in Manali. The sequence has both leads shaking a leg while dancing amidst a rainbow of colors, each color representing something new, making it is impossible to look away. The film also captures the thrilling and ancient beauty of Rajasthan.

Other movies that have shown the same are; Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge, Ek Tha Tiger, Singh is King and Jab Tak Hai Jaan and many more. 

Did that make you daydream? Want to back your bags and jet off somewhere new and exciting right now? We do for sure. While we bring out our maps and bicker over our destinations, we look forward to hearing your favorite movie locations that you have seen in recent times. Until then, bon voyage!
