The Notebook:

The Notebook Romance Lovers Movie

Based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, The Notebook follows the story of an exciting and sloppy summer romance of a country boy, Noah (Ryan Gosling) and a wealthy upper-class lady aged merely 17, Allie (Racheal McAdams).

What was only meant to be a summer fling soon turns out to be something much more serious than the two could fathom. They do get separated by the hands of fate only to be reunited later into their adult years but not without their fair share of troubles and heartbreaks.

But is it already too late for them? The Notebook has all the ingredients to make a good love story: the perfect setting for blossoming young romance in the form of a hushed little town with placid lakes, twinkling night skies, summer carnivals and the telltale aroma of romance, a gripping storyline, a mesmerizing soundtrack, love scenes to make you swoon and two very messy lovers.

Rediscover love with this movie and look back on your years of teen romance as you take boat rides, go on drives, and see Noah and Allie argue and love one another like it’s the end of the world.

A Walk to Remember:

A Walk to Remember Romance Lovers Movie

Another one based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, The Movie A Walk to Remember is the story of Landon, a popular, charming and rudderless high-school kid who gets assigned to community service after stirring up trouble.

As part of his punishment, he also finds himself playing a role in the spring play of his school where he meets, spends time with and ultimately falls hopelessly in love with the bashful, reserved and usually ignored reverend’s daughter, Jamie. But what Landon doesn’t know is that Jamie has a secret that could rip their budding romance from the grassroots.

Although the trope of popular-bad-boy-falls-for-nerd-girl has been explored many times in Hollywood, no one does it with quite so much elegance as A Walk to Remember.

The movie is a perfect depiction of the passionate power of love. I am not one for spoilers, but it is advisable to keep a box of tissues handy for this one.

Me Before You:

Me Before You: Romance Lovers Movie

2016 saw non-book lovers from every part of the world pouring over the “Me Before You” novel by Jojo Moyes. Such was its popularity that it was almost a given the movie would make it to the big screen and so it did and oh what a lovely adaptation it was.

Louisa Clark (Emilia Clarke) a free-spirited and animated lady soon finds herself riddled with unemployment problems when the recession hits her town.

To support her family she takes up the job of a caretaker of a recently-paralyzed man, Will Traynor (Sam Clafflin). Although they get off the wrong note, they soon find themselves enraptured with one another.

If you are looking for a light-hearted romance this isn’t for you but if you’re not afraid to broaden your horizons and explore more unconventional and deeper themes, Me Before You will be the perfect match for you. And despite being a movie that explores themes of loss, grief and pain, the movie ultimately is an inspirational one.

The Great Gatsby:

The Great Gatsby: Romance Lovers Movie

Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most acclaimed novel of the same name, The Great Gatsby is played out to us through the eyes of a Nick Caraway (Tobey McGuire), a World War I veteran who post-war leads a mundane life as a stock trader in NYC.

A chance encounter with Jay Gatsby (Leo DiCaprio), a flamboyant self-made billionaire turns Nick’s life upside down as he finds himself increasingly attracted to Gatsby’s enigmatic character and elusive backstory.

The Great Gatsby is not your ordinary romance film despite being tagged as one and you get to see very little romance on-screen. And yet you perceive and experience love’s passionate presence throughout the film. The movie is over-the-top grand, ridiculously gorgeous and painted in rich vibrant colours of milk and honey but at its heart, it is a deep dive into the complex human nature, the toils encountered in pursuit of higher love and the unprecedented events in life that shape us into being.

The film was always fated to be a good one owing to its absorbing narrative and glittery cast and yet it manages to astound everyone all the same. This is a cinematic experience you cannot miss out on.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind:

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: Romance Lovers Movie

A romance movie that is also sci-fi? Sounds strange but intriguing nevertheless. Oh but Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is all that and so much more.

This unapologetically imaginative story follows the relationship of two quirky individuals – Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet) as they meet on a train and instantly attracted to each other decide to explore their relationship.

However, they remain completely unaware of that fact that they were in love and had a passionate affair previously but chose to clinically erase memories of each other owing to a messy break-up.

It goes without saying that the movie is one of a kind and insanely creative. It is unpredictable and takes you on a wild goose chase as you try to understand love, life and fate. If you want a unique take on love then this is a must-watch.
