Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga
This is a first of its kind Bollywood movie to bring forward a lesbian romance plot. The title loosely translates into, ‘I felt something when I saw that girl’.

Any list of romantic movies that don’t have this movie isn’t worth its salt. This is the movie that makes this list legit. What could be more romantic than a modern-day prince and princess story? A prostitute played by Julia Roberts is picked up by millionaire Richard Gere, who makes his money by buying companies, breaking them apart, then selling them. Their meeting triggers friction that creates sparks of love, changing their lives forever.
Most people who watch this movie for the first time can’t avoid a tear or two. The creators of this movie took a factual event, and weaved a fictional love story so strong, some people swear that the story of the ‘Titanic’ movie is actually a fact. The ending is not really a happy ending, but it goes to great lengths to show the overpowering nature of true love.
An Affair to Remember
The star-crossed lovers in this movie meet on a boat cruise, where an attraction with a caveat develops; they both have partners back home that they must return to. To cover this, they make a pact to meet at the top of the Empire State Building after 6 months if they still like each other. They do, but on a fateful day, Terry, played by Deborah Kerr is hit by a car while crossing the road.
This movie is a retelling of the Shakespearean classic, ‘Hamlet’. But this time, the story is told from Ophelia’s (Hamlet’s lover) point of view, rather than Hamlet as it is in the original story. The creators of this movie could change the story view, but they couldn’t change the hands of fate. Like the play, this movie ends tragically, but none of this detracts from its emotional value.

That’s the subject of this movie, through the crisscrossing lives of two graduates from the University of Chicago who share a car trip to New York, where they intend to start their lives.
