The easiest way to kill time is to watch web-series and movies. Here are the 6 all-time greatest romantic movies you should watch in lockdown.

1. Before Sunrise

If you’re thinking what to do during coronavirus quarantine, why not see ‘Before Sunrise’? Although not much is happening in this movie, it’s a quiet story of two strangers who meet on a train and spend a night strolling through the cobbled streets of Vienna. Silent and quiet streets may be a common sight these days, but it’s a good reason to detach you from the media and get lost in some creative discussion and a growing romance.


2. Jab We Met

A romantic comedy that’s sure to make you laugh all the way through. The adversities of Aditiya’s company, portrayed by Shahid Kapoor, took him to the brink of suicide. One day he bumps into wandering aimlessly, boarding a train he bumps into the heroine of the film Geet. Kareena Kapoor Khan plays a really sweet and friendly girl, her portrayal of Geet is full of life and love. It’s a story with a really fun ride. It is available on Amazon Prime.


3. The Notebook

The Notebook, featuring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, is based on an immensely successful romantic novel by Nicholas Sparks. The film is a tale about persistence and perseverance in love. “Read me this story, and I’ll find you”, The Notebook is filled with a lot of cheesy dialogs like this that make it a lovely watch. You can watch it on Netflix.


4. Dilwale Dhulania Le Jayenge

When Raj meets Simran in Europe, it’s not love at first sight, but passion makes its presence known, as Simran comes into India for an arranged marriage.

Yes Man is the ideal description of a romantic comedy. The film features Jim Carey in the leading role. He portrays the character of a lonely guy with very poor self-esteem. However, as he enrolls in a self-help course, events take a turn and he’s told to say “yes” to anything for next year. If you love laughter along with romance, this one fits the bill perfectly.
