Romantic Valentine’s Day Movies to Watch in 2021


If you think that you won’t be able to do Valentine’s Day justice without splurging on fancy food and buying expensive gifts for your partner, you’re wrong. Although it’s up to each individual as to how he/she wants to spend this day of love, we bet you would all agree that Valentine’s Day is more about spending quality time with each other rather than spending your money. From planning a picnic to organising a stay-at-home date, everything is equally romantic as far as the couple is into each other. 


So if you’re not the kind of person who wants to make reservations at fine dines, you have come to the right place. How about planning a date night at home? Well, you and your partner can order-in food and watch a romantic movie on valentines day. At-home dates are always filled with warm hugs and snuggles and a romantic movie just adds to the mood. The best part about such lovey-dovey movies is that there are plenty of options to choose from. You can go for a rom-com or a classic and have the perfect date. 

It’s time to keep those inspirational and motivational films away, our list of Valentine Day movies will help you pick the right film.

Valentine’s Day Movies

Boy meets girl, they fall in love, they overcome all the obstacles in their love story and live happily ever after. Well, this is no longer the formula for a romantic film. Here’s a list of best romantic films to watch on valentines day that are totally relatable. 

  • Jab We Met
  • Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
  • Luka Chupi
  • Pyaar Ke Side Effects
  • Manmarziyaan
  • Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga
  • My Best Friend’s Wedding

Jab We Met

We say ‘opposites attract’ and Jab We Met is a classic example of that, isn’t it? This Shahid Kapoor-Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer is not only relatable, but it’s also quirky and fun, which makes it one of the perfect films to enjoy with your partner.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na is one of the cutest movies that I’ve watched and totally recommend to you for Valentine’s Day. After all, there is something about college romances! 

Luka Chupi

The concept of living-in is something we all relate to, right? Our generation is more inclined towards moving-in rather than getting married because many of us simply don’t see the point of putting a tag to the relationship. Luka Chupi starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon is a movie based on that.

Pyaar Ke Side Effects

A fun film in which Malaika Sherawat and Rahul Bose go through an ‘on and off’ relationship and ultimately end up together. You and your partner are totally going to enjoy this!



It’s a love triangle in which the girl’s character, played by Taapsee Pannu is determined to marry her boyfriend Vicky, portrayed by Vicky Kaushal. But things take an unexpected turn and she ends up marrying Robbie Bhatia, played by Abhishek Bachchan. A new-age story that’ll have you engrossed all throughout.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga shows the love story of two women and the struggles they go through to be accepted in the society. A thoughtful, powerful movie that’ll have you thinking. 

My Best Friend’s Wedding

So you thought you’re both just the best of friends and nothing more. But one day, when he finally reveals his marriage plans with another woman, you’re left dumbstruck. That’s what happens when Julia Roberts suddenly realises that she actually loves her best friend Dermot Mulroney, who is all set to get engaged to Cameron Diaz. 

Movies To Watch On Valentine’s Day

Won’t it be great to have some laughs too as you cuddle up with your partner to enjoy Valentine’s Day with a romantic movie?

  • Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
  • Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan
  • Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya
  • Runaway Bride
  • Knocked Up
  • Valentine’s Day
  • 500 Days Of Summer
  • Pretty Woman

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

I love this movie! This Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer is a light-hearted romantic comedy, which is a delight to watch. Even if you have watched it before, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is the kind of movie you can watch over and over again. 

Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan

This film is about a topic that is not often discussed openly. Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar get married but the problem arises when the couple can’t have sex. Ayushmann has erectile dysfunction and they movie revolves around how they deal with the situation.  

Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya

We’ve laughed whenever Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan have come together for a movie. And this movie is no exception. A perfect Valentines day movie, we say! 

Runaway Bride

The character of Runaway Bride, played by Julia Roberts, has a habit of fleeing from the altar every time she decides to get married. Eventually, she falls in love with a big-city reporter and how things happen before and after they decide to tie the knot is entertaining to watch.


Knocked Up

This movie is primarily about how a TV host and a jobless man end up having a one night stand. But things get complicated and funny when Katherine Heigl realises that she is pregnant and Seth Rogen decides to support her throughout the pregnancy. The movie is romantic, funny and undoubtedly cute. 

Valentine’s Day

From high school to teen romance to cheating, this movie shows all aspects and stages of a relationship, and we feel it is a must-watch for you and your partner. 

500 Days Of Summer

This is not a typical love story but that doesn’t mean that it’s not apt for Valentine’s Day. Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s affection for Zooey Deschanel is infectious and that makes Los Angeles look like the most romantic city in the world.
