Watching romantic movies or romance dramas is a guilty pleasure none of us can deny. There has to be at least one such movie that you have watched and loved. No matter how much we deny it, we indulge in the movies of this genre. Well, some of us more than the others, and it clearly shows.
If you are someone who’s idea of love was molded by movies like The Notebook, you are in the right place. Such movies have turned us into romantics who believe that miracles do happen. We believe that one rainy afternoon our prince (or princess) charming, all drenched in the rain, will come running towards us and profess their unrequited love to us.
What we don’t realize is that slow-motion is just an effect on the screen and not a way of life. Let’s find out which movies can cater to our undying and unflinching love for rom-coms and blame them for bumping our expectations at love to an all-time high! In fact, these movies can help you when you are feeling low!

These romantic movies have mastered the art of portraying love on the screen like no other, and we are here for it. If you have missed out on some of these masterpieces, now is a great time to catch up on them!
1. When Harry Met Sally
Directed by Rob Reiner, When Harry Met Sally (1989) one of our all-time favorite rom-coms. This movie showed us how pure friendship between a man and a woman can be. It also took us on a virtual vacation to some of the most picturesque locations we have seen. We must credit him for opening up a whole new dimension of romantic movies that shaped our young adult minds.

Another classic that delicately portrays a relationship between two very contrasting personalities.

Notting Hill was directed by Roger Michell, and we must thank him for giving us something we can watch and cherish even now.

4. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Our list would be incomplete without mentioning one of Karan Johar’s classics, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. This movie starts on a light note with three friends and their endearing love triangle.
