Some of My Favorite Indian Cinema Rom Coms

Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order, although number one is my top favorite.

  1. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi — Can’t even count how many times I’ve watched this one.

2.  Jab We Met

3.  Band Baaja Baaraat

4. Dil Chahta Hai

5. Hasee Toh Phasee

6.  Dum Laga Ke Haisha

7.  Khoobsurat — Fawad Khan Fever!

8.  Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

9.  Tanu Weds Manu

10. Queen

11. Bunty Aur Babli

12. Dostana

13.  Bang Bang

14.  Mere Brother Ki Dulhan

15. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

16. Main Tera Hero

Does DDLJ count?  🙂

And if you’re willing to go outside Hindi cinema, I have a few South Indian films that are great rom coms:

OK Kanmani – 2015 Tamil Mani Ratnam film (currently on US Netflix streaming)

Bangalore Days (Malayalam) – Multi-starrer about three cousins and their romantic adventures

Ohm Shanti Oshaana (Malayalam) – A fantastic female centric coming of age romantic story.

And a Telugu film-   Mr. Perfect, a rom com with Prabhas of Baahubali fame:

    Interesting list! Less Shahrukh than I would have expected.

    Great list! I agree with your top ten almost completely if I were to make a list myself (except I’d drop Queen out and put in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan). My honorable mentions would be different with the addition of Mujhse Dosti Karoge, Wake Up Sid, Love Aaj Kal, and Tanu Weds Manu

      I still haven’t seen Wake Up Sid! I need to rectify that. My top 10 could change by the day and how I’m feeling. I love SRK, and probably should put Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in my top 10.
