It’s 2018’s big hit! A Pakistani movie that revolves around a relatable family structure where siblings look after their parents. The movie justifies the title because it’s layers of sweet moments which you would absolutely enjoy with your family. The effortless acting of the cast members makes it a package altogether.



Beware of tears and emotional outburst! It’s a movie from 2003 starring Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini( haye cutesy couple, I swear) where they unconditionally love their children.
