While the rest of the world grinds to a halt, we’ve taken up new hobbies and attempted to find new ways to pass the time. We also require amusement in addition to all of this.
And what better way to pass the time than with a movie? We Indians adore a good film with all of its plot twists and turns, as well as romance.
Days after it’s gone, the romantic Bollywood movies leave you craving for it and remembering it. DDLJ, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and Chalte Chalte are imprinted in our minds, and it’s tough to discover films that live up to our expectations.
As a result, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 Best Bollywood Movies to watch in 2021.
1. Ajeeb Dastans
We no longer live in a world where television is our exclusive source of entertainment. Netflix has become the new chill. Netflix, on the other hand, has been busy releasing Bollywood films for the Indian market. The nicest part about Netflix Bollywood movies is that you can watch them wherever and anywhere you want.
A film featuring four stories was recently released, which is rather different from the usual romantic Bollywood films we see. However, this does not take away from the film’s allure. It’s a true treasure of a film, and each of the four storylines has a unique way of capturing your heart. The first is a love story with a twist that will break your heart while also shocking you.
The second is a terrifying thriller, and the third delves into a concept that is very similar to the first. It does, however, have its own charm. Last but not least, there’s a classic story with predictable plot twists but a thrill that makes you practically tear up. Overall, this is one of the most excellent films that you will ever see.
2. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a contemporary Bollywood comedy set against the backdrop of a romance between two guys, with Ayushman Khurana and Jitendra Kumar playing the lead characters.
While leaving you in fits of laughter, this film offers a very significant message for society concerning homosexuality. Ayushman Khurana, Jitendra Kumar, Manvi Gagroo, and Neena Gupta appear in the film, which is directed by Hitesh Kewalya and produced by Aanand L. Rai, Bhushan Kumar, Himanshu Sharma, and Krishan Kumar.
3. Love Aaj Kal 2
When Love Aaj Kal was released in theatres, no one knew how to react to such a film, and it was a flop.
People had an epiphany years later after the movie was decoded, and Love Aaj Kal 2 was born. The film beautifully depicted love and starred the attractive and beautiful duo of Kartik Aryan and Sara Ali Khan. This is the millennial romantic Bollywood film where you cry your heart out while hugging a tub of ice cream, so get ready to cry.
Malang is an action thriller film directed by Mohit Suri and produced by Luv Ranjan, Ankur Garg, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, and Jay Shewakramani that was released in February 2020.
It stars Aditya Roy Kapur (Advait), Disha Patani (Sara), Anil Kapoor, and Kunal Khemu, with Shaad Randhawa making a cameo appearance. Advait travels to Goa, where he meets Sara, a free-spirited young lady. They become drawn to each other, and everything seems to be going well until life takes a turn for the worse.
I’m going to start viewing all of Imtiaz Ali’s movies with a box of Kleenex by my side one of these days. In his films, this director brings out a distinct aspect of performers. In this film, the story of Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) is told through three periods of his life in a way that no one else can imagine.
Deepika Padukone, who plays the female lead, is practically a mirror for the girls who continue to believe in their love stories. This film portrays passion in all of its rawness, and the score by Rahman makes it impossible for us to keep our emotions from welling up in our eyes. This isn’t your typical romantic Hollywood film, but it’s well worth watching.
6. Jawaani Jaaneman
The connection of a forty-year-old father, Jaswinder (played by Saif Ali Khan), and his daughter, Tia, is the subject of this popular film starring Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, and debutant performer Alaya Furniturewala (portrayed by Alaya).
Nitin Kakkar directed the film, which Saif Ali Khan and Jackky Bhangnani co-produced. The film is a box office success, at a budget of 44.51 crores. Jawani Janeman appears to be as interesting and entertaining to watch as it appears to be.
7. Baar Baar Dekho
Baar Baar Dekho, filmmaker Nitya Mehra’s debut film, is undoubtedly one of Bollywood’s best time travel films. With two of the most beautiful performers in the key roles, the film became an instant hit based only on word of mouth. This was also unique in that science fiction is not a theme that is frequently tackled in Bollywood films.
The romantic Bollywood film is about two childhood sweethearts who become entangled in adulthood. Time travel offers a unique perspective to a plot that is very popular in romantic Bollywood films. The varied light in which the story is woven adds a new layer to the story while also conveying a powerful message. Perhaps on a romantic indoor date night, watch this with your lover.
Shikara is a period drama film directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and produced by Vinod Chopra Films in the year 2020. The film is based on the love story of a Kashmiri Hindu couple caught up in the midst of extremist terrorism in Kashmir in the 1990s, as well as the genocide that followed, leading to a mass flight of Kashmiri Hindus.
Young actors like Adil Khan, Zain Khan Durrani, and Priyanshu Chatterjee star alongside Mushtaq Kak and Sharman Joshi in the screenplay.
Another Vicky Kaushal triumph, this time starring Tapsee Pannu and Abhishek Bachchan. This romantic Bollywood film centers around the lives of Vicky, Rumi, and Robbie in a perfect love triangle.
“Husband Material” was the international title given to the picture. The plot revolves around Rumi’s search for a suitable partner, with the two male characters serving as candidates. In this fantastic romance film, there is love, rebellion, heartbreak, life, and everything else. Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
10. Dil Bechara
The next film, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi, is set to hit Indian theatres in May 2020 and is centered on a love story between two cancer sufferers.

There are a plethora of romance films in Bollywood. We have lived for romance since the beginning of movies. Socially conscious films are becoming increasingly common, but the classic romance genre retains its allure.
Bollywood romantic films, with their language, emotion, and drama, hold a special place in our hearts. So, what do you have to lose? Schedule a movie marathon with your friends and family to watch these films. I assure you that you will not be disappointed.
