1.Sleepless in Seattle
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in this movie and only actors of their caliber and chemistry can make this simple story of a long-distance love into a memorable tale of love. Meg Ryan looks lovely in the movie and Tom Hanks endearing looks and eyes full of sorrow tear at your heart, not to mention the adorable kid who plays Tom Hanks’s son and the main catalyst that gets the two protagonists together.

A list of romantic movies would be incomplete without a mention of ‘The Notebook’ based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams star in this romantic comedy that tells of everlasting and true love.
Titanic is a movie that is as big as the ship that it was named for. Directed by James Cameron and peppered with hauntingly beautiful music by James Horner this movie is one of the greatest romantic films ever made. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet star in Titanic and this star-crossed love story resonates with every generation. No Valentine’s Day binge watch is complete without paying homage to this beautiful masterpiece.
Brokeback Mountain is a love story that depicts a homosexual relationship between two cowboys played by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. The Cowboys are hired to help herd sheep in the Wyoming Mountains and an evening of whiskey drinking leads to a night of passion. The morning brings the realization of a forbidden and taboo love and the entire film revolves around giving in and trying to run away from the deep love and emotion that the two characters harbours for each other.
5.An Affair to Remember
A playboy (Cary Grant) and a songstress (Deborah Kerr) meet on a transatlantic liner and falls in love but as fate would have it both are already in different relationships. However, when the ship docks at New York they make a pact and decide to meet once again in six months time at the top of the Empire State Building, the wager being that if they both show up then they would spend the rest of their lives together. This is the benchmark love story with which all the other movies are judged.

8.The Fault in our Stars
The Fault in our Stars is definitely a tear-jerker and we recommend that you sit with a box of tissues handy because it will get the floodgates open. However, this is one of the best romantic movies in recent times and is definitely a must watch.
9.When Harry Met Sally
Can a man and woman be just friends? This movie starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal explored this idea before mainstream Bollywood embarked on it. However, the movie is one of the best romantic movies ever made and the last scene when Harry (Billy Crystal) proposes Sally (Meg Ryan) is just epic.
Notting Hill is one of the most popular and well-loved romantic comedies of all times. Starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in lead roles the movie is equally famous for a lovable romantic score “When You Say Nothing At All” by Ronan Keating.
