6 love stories/ romantic films  to binge watch amidst the lockdown

I promise i won't keep you waiting for a very long time.  So I'm back with 6 recommendations for you,  so that you can spend your quarantine  blissfully.

So here are my top 6 for you.

I haven't included classics like "DDLJ" and "Veer Zaara" because many of us have watched all of these classics .

So here's the list : -


1. Sairat

Two college friends Archi and Parshya, who belong to different castes, fall in love with each other. However, their relationship faces struggle due to the stringent practice of casteism.

Made on a budget of merely 4 crore it  collected 110 crores on the box office this one became the love anthem for the entire country.

This film holds a rating of 8.3 on IMDb

I'm talking about the original film  not "Dhadak" or "Channa mereya"  because do not mistake them for a hindi and punjabi version of the original film.

The original however has the ability to make you believe in love.,  Fall in love  and trust me the climax of this one will make you  immobile .

This one is executed by Nagraj Manjule and even if don't know a word in Marathi still you'll understand everything.

Original is Original  PEOPLE.

2. Manmarziyaan

Rumi and Vicky, who are in love, are caught by Rumi's family and pressurised to get married. However, when Vicky refuses to commit, a marriage broker brings in Robbie as a prospective suitor.

The film has a rating of 6.9 on IMDb

Anurag Kashyap  handling a love story that too set in Punjab . Risky , well  that's the film . A love triangle like never before,  characterization like  no one else.  Credits have to be given to Kanika Dhillon  as well because her writing is so authentic and it has the perfect flavor of Amritsar.

Taapsee Pannu is a delight to watch.  This actress is one of the most underrated actors in the industry currently

Vicky Kaushal is terrific his body language,  his acting, his quirky hairstyle everything in the film is on point . Anurag has left no stones unturned

Abhishek Bachchan lends that subtlety and calmness not only to his character but to the film.

The metaphorical references using twin Sisters,  dialect ,interpersonal relationships , human relationships and complications  bordering them . You'll see everything in this one.

3. Once again

Did you ever fall in love?

This day and age has snatched away one thing from all of us " Patience " ,Time beauty of every moment living every moment

An accidental phone call leads to daily conversations between an isolated film actor and a widowed restaurant owner. They finally decide to meet each other in person.

This holds a rating of 7.1 on IMDb.

This is written and directed by Kanwal Sethi.

The film takes a lot of time and nothing has been cut short. The time taken is required because that is the key ingredient of the film.  Shefali Shah is so natural and she looks so convincing that she holds every frame with her brilliance.   Neeraj Kabi is skillful.  His voice and his endearing looks will make you fall in love with him.

The film might not be everybody's cup of tea but will surely improve our love making skills. In this world so fast, take time to nurture the relationships.

This film teaches you Closeness,  intimacy

There is a sequence where arun introduces tara as ye mera khana banati hai

After that scene you tend to feel that the things are over but the film surprises you with such a mature handling

4. October

Dan and Shiuli are brought closer in an unexpected turn of events. Eventually, they develop feelings for each other and establish a bond unlike any other which leads to an internal awakening.

It has a rating of 7.5 on IMDb

Before i mention the captain of the ship i would like to tell you in advance that Varun Dhawan has put forth his career's best performance in this one.

The film will change the dynamics of love for you. It will make you care for those who you love . Love in fact is the most conflicted scenario in this one. Sacrificing your own life and just being a constant support to someone is not easy for everyone.

Shoojit Sircar has brilliantly brought life to every scene of this film. I won't reveal much about the film . But watch it for an experience like never before.

5. London Paris New York

Nikhil Chopra is a free-spirited guy who meets Lalitha in London. The two have a brief affair with a promise to meet again after six months but Nikhil fails to keep his promise.

This has a 5.7 rating on IMDb.  I feel this is amongst the most underrated films of the previous decade.

The story happens in three nights , probably some hours. But with every changing location the scenario changes , the circumstances change.

The film has a beautiful direction  by Anu Menon and the cinematography is laudable   . The chemistry between Aditi Rao Hydari and Ali Zafar is beyond beautiful.  The film is way ahead of its time.  It came out in 2012 but it talks about so much women empowerment,  sexual desires,  sexuality,  liberty.  This has it all. The film's duration is  1 hr 40 minutes  and you feel you know them since ages.

6. Sanam Teri Kasam

When Saraswati's father throws her out of the house, Inder stands with her against all odds and this brings them close to each other. However, destiny has its own plans to separate them.

Holds a rating of 7.3 on IMDb

It has the most routine story. Boy meets girl either of them has a conflict and amidst the conflict they start loving each other.

But a masterpiece is developed when you stay honest to even the most routine story.

This has great directions, beautiful performances by the lead, great songs  and a great climax.

Many of you have watched it but those who haven't give it a watch.
