    Default The Best Love Stories in Bollywood







    Regardless of what social, economical or political crisis the country is going through, Bollywood is always in the mood for love.

    Perhaps it's the reassuring nature of how the hero and heroine, in due course, will surmount all troubles to find solace in each other's arms till eternity.

    Perhaps it's the tenderness of a cynicism-free ardour and unwavering commitment that resonates with/fascinates the romantic/sensible viewer.

    Bottom-line is, silver screen romances are a beloved component of Hindi cinema even if their face, with changing times, has altered to suit the taste or trends of the contemporary.

    The year 2013 has been quite favourable to the genre with three super hits like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Aashiqui 2 and Raanjhanaa. And considering this Friday's release, Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera, is also a charming, old-fashioned take on boy-meets-girl, Bollywood is officially love-struck.

    Widely dubbed as Guru Dutt's masterpiece, Pyaasa's accomplishments are no exaggeration.

    In its profound narrative and heartbreaking gloom, where society neglects and close ties crumble, it's the delicate yet resilient bond between a disillusioned poet (Dutt) and sympathetic prostitute (Waheeda Rehman) that prospers and culminates into a memorable final scene where 'saath chalogi?' is all he needs to say, is all she needs to hear.

    Bimal Roy's soulful adaptation of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's tragic triangle deals with the worst thing to hit a relationship -- cowardice.
    Devdas doesn't have the nerve to be with the woman he loves. And when he loses her, he doesn't have the nerve to move on, embracing the path of self ruin by turning into an unstoppable alcoholic.
    Roy's perceptive touch and Dilip Kumar's dedicated delivery along with an ethereal Suchitra Sen as Paro and spirited Vyajyanthimala as Chandramukhi unravels three unique responses to heartache through its iconic characters producing timeless results.

    Remember the famous RK banner logo where Raj Kapoor is holding Nargis in one hand and a violin in another? It forms one of the most crucial moments in Barsaat and revealed the earliest signs of their renowned chemistry.
    The Kapoor-directed romance, featuring two couples (RK-Nargis, Premnath-Nimmi), aims for something more meaningful than simply breezy songs and pretty-faced flirtations, it looks at the same premise -- city boy pursues village girl -- against two diverse attitudes and the repercussions it leads to.

    K Asif's grand-scale passions between a handsome Prince and exquisite courtesan are stuff celluloid dreams are made of.
    And, befittingly enough, the majestic Dilip Kumar and his divine Anarkali (played by Madhubala) raise the bar of 'pyaar' to unprecedented heights, even when he's only caressing her face with a gentle feather.

    Though inspired by the Frank Capra classic, It Happened One Night, Chori Chori carves its own identity with the endearing bantering between a sarcastic Raj Kapoor and spoilt Nargis against the backdrop of delectable Shankar-Jaikishen melodies.

    It was later remade as Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin with Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhatt in 1991.

    While Chori Chori met with terrific approval, the legendary camaraderie breathed its last with this on-the-road rom-com if you discount a climatic cameo by the actress in RK's Jaagte Raho.

    In this sparkling romance comedy about a lovely pair and their disapproving, at loggerhead fathers, Dev Anand and Nutan effortlessly emerge as a couple you adore and root for through thick and thin.

    Vijay Anand's witty writing (plus direction) and Sachin Dev Burman's lilting melodies add the 'feel good' in the romance.

    Back when wooing a woman was understated and classy, Raaj Kumar floored both Meena Kumari and the audience with one awe-inspiring dialogue: Aap ke paon dekhe, bahut haseen hai. Inhe zameen par mat utariyega -- maile ho jayenge.
    Kamal Amrohi captures the stunning imagery of romance through Meena Kumar's lyrical expressions and his leading man's emphatic baritone to bring about the nearly impossible union between a courtesan and nobleman.

    The protagonists in Vijay Anand's acclaimed adaptation of R K Narayan's book are not black or white but erratic and erring. And this is what makes their impulses distinct and their redemption valuable.

    But a large portion of Guide's exceptional soul comes from the defiance exhibited by Waheeda Rehman's erstwhile suppressed wife, her bold (especially in the 1960s) decision to end a disappointing marriage, move in with Dev Anand's visibly supportive suitor and, ultimately, the change in their affectionate dynamics.

    Love is too enormous for definitions and descriptions. The science of relationships is a constant path t discovery.

    There's a lot of wisdom to be found in the special bond shared by a brothel singer and a disenchanted man in an empty marriage. The understood fondness between a quirky Rajesh Khanna and melancholic Sharmila Tagore is what makes Shakti Samanta's Amar Prem truly beguiling.

    Few understand the language of love like filmmaker Yash Chopra. And the two generation romance in Kabhi Kabhie articulates this skill flawlessly, wholesomely.

    The director, with his immaculate casting sense, great ear for music and appreciation for nifty writing, explores the multiple facets of the L-word through characters filled with warmth, grace, resentment, regret, confusion and dedication.

    Raj Kapoor's take on young, rebellious teen love became a huge rage in its time. It also launched the careers of solid talents like Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia.

    But it's not so much about class barriers between the couple involved as it is about the raw moments Bobby creates with its disarming spontaneity that lends our 'dosti' with this 1973 blockbuster its longevity.

    Mature take on romance often takes a backseat in Bollywood's obsession with the young and restless. Gulzar's Aandhi, however, is an elegant exception to the rule.

    In his touching drama about an estranged middle-aged husband (Sanjeev Kumar) and wife (Suchitra Sen) reminiscing their days of togetherness, reconciling with their present, the filmmaker and poet examines the intricacies of marriage, the challenges it faces while underscoring the beauty of details and nuances.

    Romance isn't about looking into each other's eyes and spewing poetry. Even love marriages go through their share of ups and downs, insecurities and upheavals as pointed out deftly by director Hrishikesh Mukerjee's marital drama, Abhimaan.

    At the same, the filmmaker focuses on how something as tricky as rivalry in marriage can be overcome if handled with sense and sensibility though compelling performances from Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan.

    In our movies, men go through all sorts of trouble to win over ladylove.

    Playing on this mindset, Basu Chatterjee's Chhoti Si Baat concocts a cute love story between a nervous office goer and the girl at the bus stop after the guy takes formal training in personality development and wooing women from a retired army-man.

    Amol Palekar's sweet awkwardness and Vidya Sinha's playful fervour makes Chhoti Si Baat a model middle-class romance.
