  1. 1. DDLJ
    2. JHMS
    3. Lootera by a country mile
    4. Bobby. I haven’t seen it but Humpty Sharma has been wiped from my memory so it can’t have been that good.
    5. Mili
    6. QSQT
    7. Aiyyaa
    8. This was sooooo haaaarrrrd. I just don’t know who I’d rather see die slowly. I guess I’ll go with Sanam Teri Kasam since it’s definitely less problematic.
    9. BBB
    10. Again, so hard! I think Kabhi Kabhie because OK Kammani doesn’t have Rishi Kapoor doing a standing jump onto a horse.

    • HA! My evil plan WORKED!!! I figured, the people who like Devdas will probably like Sanam Tere Kasam more.

      Also, thank goodness someone voted for Mili, it is such a sweet love story and I am worried not enough readers have seen it/can appreciate it.

    5. Maine Pyar Kiya

  7. I should be a little ashamed because I call myself a romance fan but I haven’t seen many of the contestants.

    1. Jab We Met
    2. JHMS
    3. Lootera
    4. I have seen Humpty Sharma but didn’t like it much so Bobby. I haven’t seen Bobby but the fact that we are still talking about it almost 50 years after the release says a lot.
    5. Haven’t seen neither but Maine Pyaar Kiya
    6. Again, haven’t seen but QSQT because it made history
    7. Ohm Shanti Oshaana of course
    8. Sanam Teri Kasam of course
    9. Saathiya/Alai Payuthay
    10. OK Kanmani/OK Jaanu


  8. 1. “Jab We Met”
    2. “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”
    3. “Jodhaa-Akbar”
    4. “Bobby”
    5. “Mili”
    6. “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak”
    7. “Aiyya”
    8. “Devdas” but, like, the platonic ideal of the Devdas narrative rather than SLB’s specific realization of it
    9. “Saathiya”
    10. “Kabhi Kabhie”

    • Aha! But you can’t choose the ideal Devdas! Because the ideal Devdas story is NOT a love story, only the Bhansali version is a love story. I thought this through!!!!

      • You can’t count my vote as being for the ideal Devdas, but I can count it that way in my heart, and that’s all that matters ( ; Also, I just don’t care enough about “Sanam Teri Kasam” to have an alternative opinion.

  9. 1. DDLJ
    2. JHMS
    3. Jodha-Akbar
    4. Bobby
    5. Maine Pyaar Kiya
    6. QSQT
    7. Aiyyaa
    8. Devdas
    9.Saathiya/Alai Payuthay
    10. Kabhi Kabhie (which I haven’t actually seen, oops)


  10. 1. DDLJ (although, ow. A bit of a difficult choice if you look at JUST plot and cleverness.)
    2. JHMS
    3. Jodha-Akbar…I think (I like the story! Not so much the exact portrayal. But this and thinking of Mughal-e-Azam as its sequel, yep, it works.)
    4. Humpty
    5. Mili
    6. QSQT
    7. OSO, even though I haven’t seen it. It seems nice!
    8. Devdas. I can’t believe you’ve made me vote Devdas for something. *grumble grumble*
    9. Saathiya
    10. Kabhi Kabhie (but who is the true love story here? Is it Amitabh/Rakhee, Amitabh/Waheeda, Rakhee/Shashi, Rishi/Neetu? Either way, KK wins. Also I just realized I’d have loved to see Rakhee in a tawaif movie!)


    • Rakhee Shashi! DUH! Any Shashi movie, it’s always the Shashi love story. Also, they are the only decent people/couple in the whole film.
