No guys I have not fallen in love,its just that I was watching CASABLANCA yesterday and I thought why not share the list of the movies which i find as most romantic. And after compiling the list i thought why the hell in most of these movies people end up crying more than laughing .Love should make people happy, i guess that should be the point of being in love. But then how would I know I has never been in love. But these are few amazing movies.
Its an epic love story which touches your heart and always make you say how can someone love somebody so madly. A beautiful actress Rachel Mcadams is amazing in the movie. And as it it said behind every great love their is a great story, this movie proves this saying perfectly.
Yes i know some people thinkI would be mad to have Casablanca at second spot instead of first. But its just that Notebook touched me much more.What to say about this movie Ingrid Bergman looking like a dream . And what makes this movie a timeless classic is the amazing dialouges and breathtaking end. I would say if the end would have been any different this movie would have lost its charm.
3)WHEN HARRY MET SALLY
Probably the movie whose dialouges you wouldn't forget in long time. "Men and Women can never be friends "and the one where Meg Ryan says "You cannot take it back coz it's already out there". A movie with amazing performance by Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan at their witty best. And not to miss the end when Billy Crystal says then when you realized that you want to spend the rest of life with someone you want the rest of life to start as soon as possible.
I know again Meg Ryan , but what can i do she is just brillant in all of her romantic movies. And this one is no different. But this movie is not just her, amazing locations and Kevin Kline at his best. But what is most memorable about this movie is a quote by Meg Ryan "All men are bastards" and the way the says it still makes me laugh. Its a great comedy and a really well executed movie.
5) BEFORE SUNSET/BEFORE SUNRISE
Simply love the movies. These are two movies which I call intelligent movies with great script and no gloss to make it look good. A gorgeous french girl and not so bad looking american guy falling in love in their first encounter and then how story unravels is amazing. Movie with the best dialouges according to me and breathtaking locations .

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
Is it me or the world that has gone insane. Anywhere i look anywhere I see all I see is insanity. Every one is hungry for the blood of the other person. It feels as if we live in the age of barbarism. World is burning, Iraq hasn't settle down yet that iran is on queue. And why go far in my own country scores of people have been massacred for what, a cause Kashmir. Honestly for someone who spent his childhood in Srinagar I am sick and tired of listening to the K word. Which cause give right to kill someone that too in the name of religion. If gods could speak they would be crying out loud to see such insane behaviour. Then another part of my nation Gujrat, demolition of a monument gave right to the mob to burn someone alive in his car,his fault , he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Six people have been killed so far and if you ask someone from their family why did they were targeted and their answer is a haunting silence. I never consider myself a religious person but I have been taught to respect everyone's faith and i have never been able to understand how this insanity got linked with religion. No religion encourages anyone to kill and yet all I hear is religious extremisim. Is this the world we are creating for the future. And the sad part of it is, I don't see any hope. Things are getting worse every day. I would like to end by a qoute which says it all
War is as outmoded as cannibalism, chattel slavery, blood-feuds, and dueling, an insult to God and humanity...a daily crucifixion of Christ
