In a jaded world like ours, hopeless romantics are beaming rays of sunshine with their borderline obsession for all things romantic. And somehow all they want to do on a day off is ogle at the same old romcoms for the 100th time and probably repeat the iconic, nauseating yet lovestruck dialogues over and over again. But I relate to you, if you’re a bird I’m a bird. (Geddit?) 😛
Yes, I do that too. I’m a part of this optimistic and infatuated community. My dreams are made up of dancing with Shahrukh on mountain tops, running into Salman’s bare arms and staring into Ranbir’s eyes while he sings a song to me. Hence who would be better than me to tell you about 7 Bollywood flicks that are actually pretty amazing and fall into our favourite genre – Rom-Com. Ready? Let’s go!
A carefree, naive boy – Karan, who loves women as much as he loves making fun of them meets an independent and self-righteous girl – Rhea, in a serendipitous manner over and over again. This happens at different phases of their lives where they barely get along and hardly appreciate each other. Until they finally mature and end up sharing an unbelievable connection. Or something they finally start noticing.
This one’s an ultimate and hilarious battle of the sexes that proves that though men and women are poles apart, we might just be incomplete without each other. Also, the animated characters Hum & Tum are adorable. Go watch ‘em now!
Sameer is under the spell of anger that makes him a violent personality. To deal with this he moves to Goa and finds the love of his life – Rani. But fate has other plans and he repeatedly gets things messed up, thanks to his horrid luck. But he never gives up on his love, until a love triangle begins to form. Who is this other guy? Who will win over Rani now?
Mujhse Shaadi Karogi is a colourful saga of misfortune and comedy you will adore. Plus the exotic music fills you with Goa vibes. Wow!
Think Bollywood doesn’t make college-flicks? Think again. Popularity is a norm in college and we’re all it’s believers even though we may deny it. One such naive soul – Rajiv, on his quest to achieve fame gets into a deceptive relationship. Things get pretty ugly and he makes us realise how boys are the bane of college life. LOL. This cute love story will make you reminisce your college-crush and probably how embarrassing things used to be!
Don’t forget, there was a time when Shahid Kapoor was just an adorable boy-next-door before he turned smoking hot! So get set to involuntarily say “Aww” throughout this film!
Another serendipitous story that might just make you as happy as(If not more than) the protagonists – Geet and Aditya. When you have an infectious and vivacious presence, nothing can really stop you from achieving the best. That’s what happens with Geet and Aditya as they stumble upon each other and learn and unlearn the messy ways of life. This one’s a true charmer and we bet will stay with you forever.
I know you might have watched this a million times already, but I can’t imagine leaving behind this iconic movie while mentioning romantic comedies. It would almost be like Bollywood-blasphemy!
Would you fake your sexual orientation to rent a great apartment? Apparently, Sameer and Kunal would. And they happily do so until they meet the owner who is a complete hottie, aka Neha. Tough life, they now have to keep up the facade but secretly start trying to win her over. This story is a rollercoaster of humourous highs and dramatic lows that make for a perfect Dharma movie.
Dostana will cheer you up with its stunning eccentricity, and the sexy cast will make you want to steal their wardrobe. No kidding.
It’s not always that men are shown on the receiving end of heartbreak and malice, while women play evil with their schemes to cheat them. Quite the opposite of a regular Bollywood film, no? That’s exactly what makes Pyaar Ka Punchnama such a legend. Three roommates are completely dominated by their so-called relationships until they take charge and turn things in their favour. #Feminism (Yes, this counts as feminism.)
This movie has a 15-minute monologue by Kartik Aaryan that will leave you in guffaws. Not because it’s just funny but because it’s highly relatable!
P.S: Don’t watch it with your girlfriend/boyfriend. (Or do.)
Two commitment-phobes – Dharam & Shyra, realise their mutual love for reckless behaviour and start living in together. It’s all fun and games until real feelings come knocking on their door and they drift apart. What is it with this generation? But, they’re both living in Paris and it’s a Yash Raj movie! We’ll say no more.
Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor share an energetic, spectacular and vivid screen presence, that will lighten up your mood and bring a smile on your face!
Let me assure you that love for romantics can never be overrated. They make us happy unlike dhishoom dhishoom movies and depressing dramas that can stress us out. So, hail romcoms!
