Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you haven’t made plans, bookmark this article. Catch up on the most romantic Bollywood movies with your loved one.
If we are talking romance and Bollywood, this movie has to top the list. It had everything. A friendship that blossomed in love and that love which didn’t care about any geographical boundaries. A true Bollywood classic.
If I am talking about classic, I can not forget to add the best of the classic romance. The Bollywood love story movie of Prince Salim and Anarkali and their everlasting love that brought civil war and nearly ruined an entire empire.
They united all the couples’ in love to stand and say, “Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya”
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai had everything that builds a classic romance -friendship, romance, sacrifices, jealousy and true love.
4. Veer Zaara
A love that transcended time and geography-eternal Veer Zara. This movie melted my heart. If this movie doesn’t give you true love feels, I don’t know what will. This movie showed us one thing that is true to love – selflessness.
Dil Toh Pagal Hai is all about the madness of the love. Yash Chopra made movies that talked about one true love. This movie is all about waiting for that one, the one which your soul says yes to.
In Guide, Dev Anand essays the role of ‘Raju guide’ with a charm that’s unmatched by any hero of my time. A tour guide falls in love with a married woman and helps her rediscover her love for dance. If you haven’t watched this movie, then you should and be prepared for the emotional roller coaster ride.
The film was a huge hit back then and not just that, it was #relationshipgoals, #friendshipgoals, and #everypossiblegoal for everyone who grew up in the ’80s
Kabhi Kabhie is what I’d like to call a complete movie- it had all the fine elements. Good story, great dialogues, great direction- and great acting. “Kabhi Kabhie” was that kind of film, it changed the way people romanced. It changed the way people dreamt of love. It changed love itself.
Unlike the other movies that talk about one true love, Taal had a love triangle. A common girl from the village and one guy from urban city meet and fall in love. Sounds quite cliched, but it isn’t. The movie manages to create a quite stir of emotions and for me, I believe this movie to be Subash Ghai’s best.
Whether it’s books or movies, we have always been showed that there is nothing more glorious than to die for love. That is why Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s tragic hero Devdas makes his widely read 1917 novel an ideal subject for filmmakers, namely P C Barua, Bimal Roy and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Silsila still remains one of Bollywood’s most compelling commercial dramas that focused on marital infidelity.
12. Kal Ho Na Ho
‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’, that broke million hearts because of its bitter-sweet love story. Wrapped in a tragic love story and friendship the film was an emotional ride for the audience and was said to be inspired by Hrishikesh Mukherjee ‘Anand’.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam is a film that portrayed love and unraveled the difference between young and mature love that would withstand the test of time.
14. The Lunchbox
A lunchtime mix-up leads to a romance. Instead of using modern social media, the virtual couple meets through a lunchbox mix-up that could only happen in India.
A girl with a mental disability is mocked and abused at home. A mute and deaf boy’s love is cruelly thwarted. A happy marriage is a glorious exception, not the rule. But Basu shows all this in a style that never allows disability and ugliness worthy of remorse. (Source)
