1. Aashiqui 2

2. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
A classic love triangle presented by none other than Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Nandini (Aishwarya Rai) has to choose between Sameer (Salman Khan), from whom she learned how to love, and Vanraj (Ajay Devgan), who taught her what the principles of love are. The characters are excellent, Aishwarya is a joy to watch and those of you rooting for Sameer might just end up feeling a bit for Vanraj as well.

3. Parineeta
This is the sort of movie that grandmas insists we watch every time they’re telecast on the TV, which is like five times a week. Still, if you want to see why Vidya Balan is the absolute tour de force that she is today, Parineeta gives us a good indication. The storyline is complex, the characters are many, and all we can say is that this is one love story that is worth your time, and will hit closer to home that you probably realize.

4. Fanaa
In this Bollywood love story movie, Kajol plays Zooni (a blind Kashmiri girl) who is romanced by Rehan (Aamir Khan) who’s philandering nature had earned him quite a reputation. Zooni’s friends and well-wishers warn her against this serial womaniser, but Rehan promises to show Zooni the world the way in which it was meant to be seen – full of colour. Is this a trick or is it love?

5. Raanjhanaa
This is quite a tale and an attempt to summarise it in just a few words isn’t really doing it any justice. A small town boy, Kundan, falls in love with a town girl who dreams of city life and all that it has to offer. Breaking through the class divide has never been more challenging and important.

6. Tere Naam
Radhe (Salman) and Nirjara (Bhoomika Chawla) have a heck of a story here, she’s upper class, he decidedly isn’t; she’s polished, he’s rough and has a temper; they fall in love, her parents aren’t amused and Radhe gets into a fight where an injury to the head leads to amnesia. Will Nirjara’s re-entry into his life mean better for him or worse?
