Year of release: 2010
Director: Siddharth Anand
Actors: Priyanka Chopra, Ranbir Kapoor
Akash (Ranbir Kapoor) and Kiara (Priyanka Chopra) are hurt and want to quit their lives for different reasons. They try to die but they can’t. I guess they didn’t approach the death master from Final Destination! So they live through various suicide attempts. They consider this as a nature’s call and decide to take a trip to Las Vegas and die later. On this trip they obviously fall in love, then get apart, again come back, marry and live happily ever after. What I loved in this film is the huge backdrop of locations like Valley of Fire, Golden Gate and Las Vegas. And of course Priyanka Chopra’s character name Kiara, which means dark or little.
Brooklyn Bridge, New York, USA
The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest bridges of the United Stated which connects Manhattan and Brooklyn. As I said earlier, the leading pair is highly depressed and planning for suicide. Akash goes to the famous to commit suicide. There he meets Kiara whose there for the same act. Here they try to end their lives together but fail!
Wollman Rink, New York, USA
Wallman Rink is a public ice rink in Central Park, New York. The rink was opened in 1949 and it has been a favorite location for many romantic movies. A part of the song Aas Paas Hai Khuda was shot here. We see a depressed Kiara skating at the Wollman Rink.
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California, USA
The director seems to love the bridges of the US. We can enjoy the panoramic view of the Golden Gate Bridge which is known as one of the wonders of the modern world. Heartbroken Kiara cries her heart out without caring for her expensive mascara in her car parked near this bridge. This is the real reason why she wants to die over the Brooklyn Bridge.
Jean Dry Lake, Mojave Desert, Nevada, USA
Akash and Kiara are on their road trip to Las Vegas. A part of the song Hairat was shot at the Jean Dry Lake in the Nevada Desert. People often go there for camping and cycling trips.
Valley of Fire State Park, Mojave Desert, Nevada, USA
The Valley of Fire State Park is the oldest park in Nevada. The giagantic red stones, sand dunes from the dianoseur era and thousands of arches created by the wind keeps you mesmorised. Akash and Kiara can be seen walk through the red rocks of the Valley of Fire State Park when their car is stolen from the goons. Part of the song Tujhe Bhula Diya where the leading pair is on their way back from Vegas was also shot here.
Excalibur Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Akash and Kiara are shown enjoying the glittering city of Las Vegas through out the song I feel good. The song features Excalibur Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas.
Bellagio, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Kiara and Akash hold a bag of liquor on their shoulder and the pipes in their mouth in the song I feel good which begins at the fountains of Bellagio, Las Vegas.
Fremont Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
I feel good song from the movie surely inspires you to go through various streets and hotels from Las Vegas. Kiara and Akash are shown dancing and giggling in front of the red and flashy, stunning, Fremont Hotel and Casinos on Fremont Street of Las Vegas.
Lake Mead, Mojave Desert, Nevada, USA
The sad song from the movie Tujhe bhuladiya became the national break up song of the year. It was partly shot at the banks of largest water reservoir of USA i.e. Lake Mead in Nevada.
