Dil Chahta Hai

No second thoughts cross my mind when I claim it to be the coolest film Bollywood ever created. If Goa and Bollywood are a part of the same language then nothing speaks it better than Dil Chahta hai.

On their adventure getaway, Akash {Aamir Khan}, Sameer {Saif Ali Khan}, and Sid {Akshaye Khanna going to Goa represent} made going to Goa like living the American dream in the bungalows in Goa. The 3 guys chilling in the iconic scene at Chapora Fort hits all the right buttons. An uphill trek from Aguada will take you to Chapora to catch breathtaking views of the blue and green waters.

Dear Zindagi

This movie is a refreshing change from how Goa is represented usually in popular culture. The focus is largely on the therapeutic side of sunny and breezy Goa and less on the usual tourist destinations. One is bound to get healed of any problem in one of the prettiest places in the world especially if the person treating you is none other than Shah Rukh Khan. From the open fields to traditional homes, quiet beaches, and rickety ferry rides, villas in Goa —you’ll get a hang of all of them in this 2-hour package.

Finding Fanny

The movie is about 5 goofy characters played by 5 amazing actors coming together to find the love of one of them. All of this and more madness set to the backdrop of the scenic rural Goa! Ah! What more can one ask for? Shot in picturesque villages like Socorro, Cortalim, and Saligao — you get served a slice of true Goan life. The road trip across Goa brings to highlight the open fields, wayside forts, churches, hills, sunsets and an urge to instantly pack your bags.

Apart from these the Golmaal series, Honeymoon Travels pvt Ltd. and Dum Maaro Dum encapsulate the true spirit of Goa.
