New Delhi:

Who doesn’t love a good romantic comedy?  As one of the most-loved genres in cinema, romantic comedies have thrived for decades now. They take on a different flavour in the Indian subcontinent with the unique cultural context and familial bonds thrown in the mix. A prime example of this is Laxman Uterkar’s latest offering Zara Hatke Zara Bachke which features Sara Ali Khan and Vicky Kaushal in the lead roles. The two stars play a much-in-love couple, who are desperate for a divorce. If this was not perplexing enough, you have a host of family members, who act as catalysts for a comedy of errors in the lives of Kapil [Vicky] and Saumya [Sara].

If Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, has left you asking for more such romantic comedies, we recommend you watch these classics next. 

  1. Jab We Met – Prime Video

Jab We Met is one of those films that not only did exceedingly well at the box office but has also grown to cult status over the years. What happens when a woman running away from home to be with the love of her life meets a man who is on the verge of self-harm? A lot of laughs, great songs, and some incredible chemistry. Watch it for Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor’s amazing performances and a soundtrack that only gets better with time.

  1. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – Netflix

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani by Ayan Mukerji is one of those films that has become an indelible part of Indian pop culture.

  1. Band Baaja Baarat – Prime Video

  1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara – Netflix

This one is a no-brainer. Released in 2011, the film by Zoya Akhtar features an ensemble cast including Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, and Kalki Koechlin. The story follows three friends and a transformative vacation to Spain, right before one of them is set to get married. The captivating soundtrack, hilarious dialogues, and inspired performances make this film a classic. 

  1. Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na – Netflix

Two best friends are in love. The world knows; they don’t. While this may not seem like a novel idea, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na came as a breath of fresh air, when it was released in 2008. The film is loved for its beautiful music, fun vibe, and easy performances.
