Kal Ho Naa Ho’ is a timeless film that brings back warm memories of love and family life to one’s heart.
Here are 10 awesome things we can all learn from ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’
1) “Haso, Jiyo, Muskurao... kya pata kal ho na ho” – How you should live life to the fullest
Like Naina’s neighbour Aman tells her, life is full of surprises and no one knows what tomorrow holds. We should always live life to the fullest and cherish every moment and make the most of it.
2) Your best friend at the end of the day is the one who becomes your life partner
Naina and Rohit were not just best friends; they were more like soul mates. They knew each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They knew what made each other happy and what was troubling them. Although they were total opposites they got along with each better than anyone else. Like they say, “Opposites always attract.”
3) Your mother can also be your best friend
Jenny is not portrayed as any ordinary mother but more like someone’s best friend. Whenever Naina is tied down with any problem in her life, Jenny would always make sure that she is there for her daughter to comfort her in that moment of grief and also give her valuable advice.
4) Neighbors are like your extended family/Guardian Angels
When Aman notices the family praying, he decides to make their problems his own. He becomes more like the family’s guardian angel sent to answer their prayers.
5) Bros for Life
Even though Aman and Rohit haven’t known each other for a very long time they still become the best of friends. They always take life one step at a time and they know how to enjoy all the finest things in life to the fullest.
6) Best friends are forever
Naina and Sweetu go through various ups and downs in their lives, but they are always there for each other.
7) To sacrifice your love is one of the hardest things in the world
If you truly love someone, you need to be ready to let them go for the sake of their happiness. We see how Aman decides to sacrifice being with Naina on account of his terminal condition. He realises she would be happier with a partner like Rohit that could be there for her throughout her life.
8) Problems don't end by hiding them
Naina being a little pessimistic and cynical person never believed in sharing her problems with anyone. But it is better to sometimes share your problems with friends and family; they may be able to offer you a solution or at least console you.
9) The burden of the world does not lie on your shoulders
Naina always felt that she had to carry the burdens of the entire family on her shoulder alone just because she was the eldest sibling in the family. We should all learn to lighten up and stop falling prey to this notion.
10) Mistakes are a part of life and a learning experience
We don't commit mistakes knowingly. But we must learn to deal with their consequences. We need to learn from our mistakes and move on.
