Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me ON VALENTINE’S DAY????

Happy Valentine’s Day! You know how there’s also “Galentines Day” from Parks and Rec? When you spend Feb 13th celebrating the wonderful platonic women in your life? That doesn’t make sense to me because that is how I have ALWAYS celebrated Valentine’s day! Which also means, y’all should be checking your mailboxes 🙂

Here is where you get to ask me anything you want from “What is the history of Valentine’s Day in India?” to ‘What are you doing yourself to celebrate?” Just keep swinging back to this post all week as you think of new questions!

Now, question for you! In honor of Valentine’s Day (and the bracket awards I will be putting up later), what is your personal favorite romance movie from India?

DDLJ is my favorite movie overall, but for pure romance, I think I have to go JHMS!!!!!

  1. Overall favourite romance…not a question I want to answer because there are a lot of them.

    Kat and Vicky are being so damned adorable! I love them so much and they love each other to bits and it is clear to see.

    Also, Vikrant Massey got married!

  2. My favourite romance movie is Anamika. I loved Jaya in the movie and Sanjeev is so good at the cold but warm heart role.

    What’s your favourite Valentine meetcute in Indian film?

    Mines is dil to pagal hai, that scene with SRK coming to Madhuri’s house and her wish being fulfilled is so cute.

    • I also love Anamika! It’s not my favorite, but it’s awfully cute. I think my favorite meet cute is DDLJ. You can’t really top the pulling into the train moment, just instantly iconic.

  3. I know it didn’t end well, but I like pageantry, so I’m going with Ram Leela. It was my introduction to the wonders of Ranvir Singh, and the balcony scene was amazing. But like Kirre writes, choosing one movie is hard. There are so many great Indian film romances, 96 and JHMS, for instance, many of them about star-crossed lovers.

  4. Favourite romance is difficult, because many of my favourites have terrible actual romances. I guess Ghungroo, or any of those Sunil Dutt Falls In Love With An Unsuitable Woman movies. The romance isn’t the main focus of any of the good Govinda movies so those are out.

  5. Favorite romantic movies are easily Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Khoobsoorat. Varun and Alia are just so perfect for each other. The movie is young, and fresh, and just everything about their romance makes me go aww!

    Khoosoorat is my favorite fantasy romance. Ridiculously hot, grumpy prince; and smart, wacky, independent heroine. The heroine gets everything she wants. The hero and his parents learn the folly of their ways. No one is truly evil. It is my perfect fantasy romance!

  6. Valentines is for all those I love 🙂
    So, happy Valentines to all of you here!
    Yes, Margret, I would like ro know about how Valentines came to India.
    My favourite Indian Romance…there are a lot, but as ShahRukh is my favourite, I go – like you – with Hab Harry met Sejal.

  9. This will be unusual, but my favorite love story to watch on screen might be Swades. I just love the way Shahrukh and Gayatri’s romance unfolds. It has a lot to do with Mohan being my favorite SRK character who might exist in real-life that I can actually fall in love with!

  10. JHMS – tourguide life. Personal favorite inevitably means I’ll have a personal connection to it. That said, I sure do watch Parugu a lot.

  11. This question has made me realize that most of my favorite romances aren’t in romance movies, but just kind of going on in the backgrounds of other genres. For straight-up romances, maybe “Daawat-e-Ishq”? Or “Aa Gale Lag Jaa,” if that counts.

  12. I have so many favourites: Dia with not one but two romances, Joseph with a beautiful but dark and heartbreaking love story, Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Veer-Zaara, but I think I love the most Ohm Shanti Oshana and 96.

  13. My personal favorite romance will probably always be Ye Maaya Chesave! I do think Alaipayuthey, DDLJ, Fidaa, and Humpty Sharma round out my top five though.

    I have a question for you. So I noticed that older Hindi movies always had the title in Hindi, English, and Urdu but in the past 10 years or so the Urdu title got dropped. Why do you think that has happened?

    • Because India has turned into a fundamentalist theocracy in the past ten years?

      • Lol true, that is one way of putting it…
        I was watching Jab Tak Hai Jaan when I really noticed it because it’s Yash Chopra’s final film and it not having the title in all three languages felt really weird.
