Jab We Met
Who doesn’t love cheeky Geet and her endless banter with the serious Aditya? This Imtiaz Ali movie is among the finest romantic comedies of all time. It is a whole roller coaster and we’re sure it’ll make you feel every emotion you could possibly feel. Geet’s dialogues will leave you chortling endlessly but the heavier, emotional scenes are sure to leave you pondering over love and life as well. All in all, this movie is a great one to watch at any point in your life and sure to leave you feeling different emotions with every watch.
Based on the novel by Chetan Bhagat, this movie has been a stellar hit amongst youngsters. It portrays the love between Krish and Ananya, who come from two entirely different parts of the county. The only thing they have in common is their love for each other…which might be enough in another country, but not in our society! Watch them try to convince their families to let them get married in the most comical and heart-warming of ways.
Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein
We all love Madhavan and Diya Mirza in this romantic movie. This charming movie makes people reminisce about their college days over and over again and reminds them what it felt like to be in love back then. With each turn the movie takes, you’re sure to be on the edge of your seat while rooting for what really matters in the end- the power of true love.
Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na
This rom-com has been a cult favourite for years and years now! Bubbly Genelia D’ Souza and Imran Khan stole our hearts the moment this movie was released…and they’ve managed to keep hold ever since. It is an adorable movie where the male and female leads are the only ones who don’t know that they’re soul mates and are meant to be together. Watch the two mess around in life, meet other people…only to come back to each other, and realise that their true love was right in front of them all along.
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day with these classic Bollywood movies!
