Friendship is the theme that the major Bollywood 2022 releases are relying on. And, given slapstick and adult comedy content available in abundance in the form of web series and movies these days, one really longs for a feel-good watch to break the clutter. One such genre that helps you achieve just that is a ‘buddy movie’. Easy-going, feel-good and snack-able content while also being deep in its own way is the beauty of this particular genre. For those who are fond of such films (who isn’t?), 2022 is going to be one heck of a treat! Here are 5 movies to look out for in this space this year.
