The weekend is finally here and so is the beautiful month of October! The weather is amazing outside and we are feeling a little mushy on the inside. In case you are not, then we have something to instantly get you in a good mood. And what’s that? A list of romantic movies you can binge-watch in your cosiest PJs with a bucket of caramelised popcorn.

Before you say that you are not into those utterly cheesy love stories, let us tell you that we are not either! Well, dancing around the trees and proposing to someone after dating them for three days is not something we recommend or find relatable. So, instead of suggesting films that are quite frankly overdramatic, we are here with the names of seven new-age romantic movies that are realistic and interesting.

7 Romantic Movies That Remind Us Of Our Own Love Life

Here’s the list of seven new-age romantic movies that ditched the regular plot of ‘boy-meets-girl’ and gave us stories that our generation could relate to:

Shiddat

Instagram

The newest entry in the list is Shiddat that released today and is already garnering impressive reviews from the viewers. Well, we have watched it and all we can say is, it is defs worth the praise. Sunny Kaushal plays the role of Jaggi, who falls madly in love with Kartika (Radhika Madan). While he wears his heart on his sleeve, she’s somewhat dubious about the concept of love. Oh and also, she’s about to get married to someone else. But, she will cancel the wedding if Sunny proves that their feeling for each other is a lot more than infatuation. To do that, he will have to climb mountains and swim oceans…literally. Will that be enough?

Love Aaj Kal 2

Instagram

The movie has not got everything right, but it has some elements that remind us of modern-day romance. It stars Sara Ali Khan as Zoya and Kartik Aaryan as Veer. The story follows the ‘love-shove-dating-shating‘ format and there are instances that will look extremely familiar. Their confusing relationship status and struggle to find a balance between work and personal life will remind us of our own love life that can get really messy at times.

Jab Harry Met Sejal

Instagram

This movie tells us that love is unpredictable and even the wisest of us makes the mistake of believing that we are immune to it. Sejal (Anushka Sharma) meets Harry (Shah Rukh Khan) and falls in love with him despite being engaged to someone else. Their emotions take both of them by surprise and we are reminded once again that we find love when we least expect it.

Ajeeb Daastaans

Instagram

Ajeeb Daastaans is an anthology film, consisting of four short stories. The one that truly touched our hearts was Geeli Pucchi. It’s about Bharti (Konkona Sen) and Priya’s (Aditi Rao Hydari) lives that get entangled in the most unexpected way. They fall in love, but refuse to acknowledge their feelings because they fear being judged by society. The story also shows how casteism still plagues our country and affects our relationships with others.

Shubh Mangal Saavdhan

How important is it for a couple to be compatible sexually? Well, that’s a question that a lot of us feel embarrassed to ask and answer even in today’s world. This movie tries to change that. Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar remind us of the importance of healthy sex life and why it is required to be vocal about our sexual wellbeing.

This movie is inspired by 500 Days Of Summer and has a bittersweet ending as well. It reminds you that sometimes, love is not enough and that’s completely okay. The one you love may not love you back and that’s not the end of the world. Life goes on and the heartbreak fades away with time.

Tamasha

Tamasha teaches us that we need to love ourselves first if we want someone else to love us. The story reminds us of the need to communicate in a relationship and the fact that we cannot depend on others to make us happy. It is the movie that will speak something to all of us.
