The Bollywood industry has always managed to strike a chord with the audience with its larger than life stories, heartfelt tales and with its slapstick comedy. And then there are certain gems where the movie was shot so beautifully that it organically captured the spirit of the city the story was set in.

So here are 9 movies which have beautifully captured the essence of the city that they were set in -

Wake Up Sid: Mumbai - The Ayan Mukerji debut movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma beautifully captured the magical city of rains and dreams. From Marine Drive evenings to neighbors who turn to friends in buildings, Wake Up Sid showcased the spirit of Mumbai - kept alive in rains, waves.

Delhi 6: Delhi - Many filmmakers have tried to capture the ethnic, at sometimes modern and the vibrant spirit of Delhi, but Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Delhi 6 has come the closet. Be it the crowded corners of Chandni Chowk to the fast-paced metros and the heritage walks, Delhi-6 beautifully captured the modern, yet traditional Delhi.

Kahaani & Piku: Kolkata - Bengal is a difficult city to capture but movies like Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani and Shoojit Sircar's Piku managed to bring alive the city in their narratives, by making the city intrinsic to the story. Both the movies made the city envelop the emotional spirit of the city into their storyline and their characters.

Barfi: Darjeeling - Bollywood have always had a thing with hill stations, but with Anurag Basu's Barfi, we got to see the other side of Darjeeling with the misadventures of Murphy "Barfi" Bahadur (Ranbir Kapoor). Whether it was the cafes, the train rides, or the churches in the backdrop, the movie presented Darjeeling as it is, a mystical beautiful city.

Masaan: Banaras - Directed by Neeraj Ghaywan, Masaan was an honest and painful portrayal of the fragility of human nature. In the film, Banaras is not just the place they live in, it's an emotion that somehow affects the film's tone and brings a unique gloomy charm to it. With its crowded roads becoming the perfect metaphor for hidden desires and secret burdens, Masaan was indeed a beautifully captured movie.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani: Manali & Udaipur - YJHD brought trekking with friends and destination weddings to the forefront. Trekking across mountain passes in the middle of the night, setting up bonfires in the hills, or discovering temples, the movie brought Manali to life in the first half of the movie while the second half of the movie had us soaking in the royal charm of Udaipur.

Karwaan: Ooty & Kerala - The slice of life movie starring Irrfan Khan, Dulqueer Salmaan and Mithila Parker will make you fall in love with the picturesque locations and road trips. The movie had a wonderful message that the beauty of the journey lies in not just of self-exploration but also in the areas the passengers traverse on.

Karwaan

Dear Zindagi: Goa - Although Dil Chahta Hai may have pushed us to have at least one road trip to Goa with friends, it was Dear Zindagi starring Alia Bhatt which showed a serene side of Goa which most of us miss. The movie presented us with heritage villas, laidback cafes, and palm-fringed roads that encompass the hard-to-capture Goan spirit.
