Three of the best classic romantic movies:
- LOVE ACTUALLY:
This 2003 romantic movie, that has some pinch of comedy to it too, revolves around the lives of eight couples, most of whom are related to each other. Hugh Grant and his smile is a heart-warming combination for all of us.
The story begins with Hugh Grant’s voiceover and slowly opens the audience up to the lives of people, few of whom are deeply in love, few of whom just care for each other, few of whom got cheated by their partners and resorted to finding love somewhere else.
Whether it is the veteran Rockstar Billy who is not confident about his music release to be a hit, or the unrequited love of Mark for Juliet, the love that crosses the barrier of language between Jamie and Aurelia, or the blooming romance between David (the prime minister played by Hugh Grant) and Natalie (a new household staff), when all these love stories happening simultaneously conjure up, they make us go weak in our knees to learn that love sometimes may not be two-sided, love can be just affection between two friends, love never judges the social status of a person and that it can overcome all barriers.
The best part of this movie is that all these love stories climax to the advent of Christmas, enough to cause goosebumps in romantic hearts. We are sure, that you will be able to relate to at least one element from these stories.
- FIFTY SHADES OF GREY:
Well, this has more of a flavour of sexual arousal rather than just pure romance. This is one of the sexy movies for couples.
This Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan starred and a 2015 movie, revolves around the lives of two characters named Christian Grey and Anastasia, who by virtue of fate, get involved in a sleazy affair, that is characterized by one-sided-feelings, a lot of BDSM, some strong emotions and also heartaches.
While Christian clarifies his dis-interest in romantic affairs at the beginning itself, and that he was only looking at the sexual aspect of a relationship, to Anastasia, the events that follow in their lives only bring them together. Eventually, as the movie progresses, Anastasia has to break up with him, given his extreme wants of sexual experimentation and the emotional distance that he wishes to keep from her.
Do not watch it with a sulking heart as the end doesn’t fit into the happy ending category. But definitely, watch it as a rule book to take tips from, to spice up your sex lives.
- LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS

Anne Hathaway is every guy’s crush, and she does justice to the character in this movie named Maggie, who suffers from the early onset of Parkinson’s disease. Jake Gyllenhaal, plays the role of Jamie, a women magnet and charismatic pharmaceutical sales representative.
Though the early part of the movie is about Jamie’s flamboyant nature around women and how he uses his power of attraction to pitch sales deals, the latter part of the movie shows to us as to how love changes him as a person to support and madly be in love with a girl fighting her own health issues and not reciprocating love.
She is definitely in love with him, but she cannot ruin the life of a healthy person with this disease of hers. The way he woes her and wins her heart by promising to be with her in good and bad times will definitely give you love goals. After all, love is a drug, isn’t it?
