Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta in Veer Zaara
The modern day rendition of Heer Ranjha , Laila Majnu , Mirza Saahiban , Veer Zaara is an ultimate example of what they call ‘traditional selfless love story’. Yash Chopra’s direction added charm to the Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta starrer so did the beautiful music of by Madan Mohan. Needless to say , Shahrukh Preity too together got immortalised as Veer Zaara.
Bhagyashree And Salman Khan in Maine Pyar Kiya
An ideal love story in the very conventional sense. The movie had every element that is required in a love story , two young innocent lovers , family feudal , villains and beautiful music. It was this movie that marked the beginning of Salman Khan’s most loved characterisation of Prem . This movie can also be regarded as a happier version of Romeo and Juliet.
Juhi Chawla and Aamir Khan in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak
One of the finest adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo Juliet. The movie not only marked the beginning of the new era in Hindi Cinema , it also gave the audience one of the most adorable on screen couple , Juhi-Aamir.
Shah Rukh Khan and Manisha Koirala in Dil Se
I am sure you must be wondering why I chose this SRK movie over his other ideal love sagas like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge , Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Mani Ratnam’s Dil se was a tragic , extremely sad love story but also very aesthetically portrayed. The movie was indeed poetic with Santhosh Sivan’s magnificent cinematography and A R Rahman’s wonderful music. What many don’t know that the movie’s thematic base is the love in its seven stages as described in Persian texts , which are attraction, infatuation, love, reverence, worship, obsession, and death. Yes , Megha and Amar were destined to embrace death.
Nutan and Sunil Dutt in Sujata
A heart stirring love story of an upper caste boy and untouchable woman weaved beautifully in a poignant narration. Sujata is Bimal Roy’s classic directorial which I insist no movie lover should ignore.
