The movie tells an extremely passionate story about two young lovers Allie and Noah, who are madly in love when they are young. But there is a class discrepancy where a rich girl and a poor boy can’t be together.
But destiny pulled them together years later. The story is being told by Noah, who is old now and Allie, who is slipping in the shadows of Alzheimer’s. He everyday reads to her from a notebook that tells the story of how they met and fell in love.
I could say watching The Notebook on Valentine’s day night at home sitting beside your love would be romantic and emotional.
I have watched Titanic for around 7-8 times, and every time I watch this insanely romantic movie, I literally wipe my tears to see Jack going down into the chilling ice water, leaving Rose behind.
Anyone who loves romantic movies will agree that Titanic will remain one of the best romantic movies of all time.
Two young lovers Jack, a smart and talented artist, and Rose, who hails from a royal family, fell in love with him. But heartbreaks follows with a tragic incident ‘ship wreckage’ that ends their love story then and there.

It is a lovely and touching story that Nicholas Sparks has brought to us through her novel.
Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant’s popular romantic comedy ‘Notting Hill’ is still a great movie to watch on Valentine’s day. It feels happy when I see Julia and Hugh Grant on screen in this movie. It feels they are the perfect couple with a great many obstacles.
I love the bookstore, by the way. When I first watched the movie, I so fell in love with the bookstore that it became my dream to open exactly a bookstore like that. Unfortunately, life takes a turn, and my dream remained a dream.
So, this Valentine’s day you can enjoy watching ‘Notting Hill’ on Netflix.
A sweet story of a robot who is responsible for cleaning the waste material of the Earth happens to fall in love with another robot. An animated movie that literally has the least of dialogues but made the movie look real and given a core message to its audience.
I think Wall-E is Pixar’s best movie till now. A journey of a little robot. It is a kind of movie that puts smile even on the grown-ups.
Watch Wall-E on Hotstar.
Call Me by Your Name
‘Call me by your name’ is a stunning romantic movie that shares the love story of two characters Elio and Oliver.
The movie has such depth in terms of sensuality and emotions that believe it or not after watching the film it makes me think that this is the best romantic movie that I have ever seen in my life.
The much-talented actor Timothee Chalamet’s s performance as Elio is marvelous. His portrayal of Elio makes him one of the best of the coming – age actors. According to Vulture, he is the perfect movie star of 2018 and in the upcoming years.
Not only narrative but the film sets in the Italian summer has captured the rural beauty of Italy so well. The colors, sticky heat, fountains, lakes, and the antique villa everything looked great on the screen.
