Top 5 Romantic movies ever

In 5th position: Kagaz Ke Phool

The fifth position is held by Guru Dutt’s love saga ‘Kaagaz ke Phool’ that is rumoured to portray Dutt’s increasing distance with his wife singer Geeta Dutt that was initiated by his alluring affection for Waheeda Rahman. An unraveling tale about the love between a self-absorbed director and a beautiful actress.
A commercial disaster this film may be, but it is definitely one of Hindi cinema's finest films and a Guru Dutt classic.The film is an epic and was ranked at 160 among greatest films of all times. The film has memorable music by legend S D Burman and artists like Geeta Dutt and Mohammad Rafi had lent their vocals for the songs.
In 4th position: Maine Pyar Kiya

Among the five evergreen movies that have instilled the audience to ‘fall in love’, the fourth position goes to Sooraj Barjatiya’s romantic flick ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ that rocked the nation in 1989. A romantic film about friendship that turns into love. However, the father stands in the way their union but eventually, the hero wins gets love. The film created a superstar of today and gave bollywood cinema a standardised script for years to come.The young duo of Prem and Suman (played by Salman and Bhagyasree) and their struggle for a happy reunion allured teenagers all across the country. The film received many acclaims including a Filmfare for Best film and Best Music.

In 3rd position Devdas

The third position goes to ‘Devdas’ that is based on a novel by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The plot of the film revolves around the rich Devdas and the poor Parvati. How societal taboos set the lovers apart and ruined their lives forever is what the story is all about. The film has been made in different Indian languages so far. Though the first filmy version of Devdas was made in 1927, the Dilip Kumar starrer of 1955 still tops the chart. Bengali actress Suchitra Sen played the role of Paro while the role of courtesan Chandramukhi was enacted by Vyjantimala. Devdas has managed to sway the audience with emotions every time the film has hit the silver screen.
The iconic film is probably loved by one and all. The experience of love by the different characters in the film, and the way in which it is presented is truly iconic. The hero loves, but cannot express it. Paro loves but cannot find the guy who can give that love back to her, and Chandramukhi trades in love. The love story of this movie totally enthralled the audience. Women especially loved the movie as they could themselves relate to it. It is an emotional movie and will surely make you cry.

In 2nd position: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

This film needs no introduction at all. Shahrukh Khan and Kajol make a wonderful pair in this film. DDLJ won several awards and celebrated 600 weeks of continuously running in Mumbai cinemas in April of 2007. Beautiful screenplay, wonderful songs and good direction got this film international recognition. It is one of the only 2 Hindi films listed in '1001 movies you must see before you die'.
Yash Chopra’s son Aditya Chopra debuted as a director with DDLJ in 1995. The film bagged 10 awards that year including a National award for the most popular film of the year. A movie hall in Mumbai is still holding shows of DDLJ…….what more does the film need to be a star!

And, the 1st position goes to epic movie: Mughal-E-Azam

The film that has topped charts forever since it was made is K.Asif’s ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ that was released in 1960 for the first time. The film is now available in both B&W and colour. Directed by the perfectionist, K.Asif Mughal-e-Azam starred the great Pritviraj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Madhubala. The movie took 10 years to be shot and broke all box-office records.  The epic love story between Prince Salim (played by Dilip Kumar) and a court dancer Anarkali (played by Madhubala) has been an inspiration for lovers through time. It not only broke innumerable records in terms of lavish technology and art used in the film but also for its brilliant music and songs that are hummed till today. The brilliantly scripted dialogues of the film were awarded with Filmfare that year. Naushad’s ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya’ became the anthem for lovers all across the globe.

Words cannot describe the beauty of the film. One has to watch it to realise how utterly romantic this film is.

Bollywood’s celebration of love and romance is eternal and continues till today……..not only with every new film that is made……but essentially in every movie lover’s heart!
