Here are perfect five date night Bollywood movies on Netflix, carefully picked for your special night :

  1. Jab We Met

The cult-classic romantic movie by none other than Imtiaz Ali needs no introduction. Loved by audience and critics alike, this movie is undoubtedly one of the best Bollywood rom-coms ever made.  From one great cracker of a chemistry between the leads to the discography; from the story to the screenplay. Everything about this movie is simply perfect. One of the noteworthy parts of the movie was the character arc of both the leads. However, the healer and the healed go the other way round in the second half. Aditya helps her gain her lost self back, thus reflecting their circle of life.

Plot: A richie-rich, but poor Aditya on the verge of ending his life meets a fun-loving and free-spirited Geet. Their meet turns his life around in the right direction, until he finds out that Geet goes missing.

Director: Imtiaz Ali

Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Dara Singh, Pawan Malhotra


  1. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani

If you want your date to be a mindless laugh fest, this movie is suited for the night. Every funny scene of the movie tickles you to laughter. This is a light-hearted movie where you can’t stop admiring the performance and comic timing of the actors. You would laugh out loud at the lead actor’s antics and also feel sorry for his unrequited love. The amazing songs like ‘Tera Hone Laga’ and ‘Tu Jaane Na’ would surely sprinkle glitters to the aura of your special night. In the end, there is a sweet surprise for the audience. Watch the movie and find out.

Plot: Prem, a selfless but goofy boy falls in love with Jenny, who is already in love with Rahul. Although heartbroken, the movie follows the journey of their friendship and his efforts to reunite Jenny with Rahul.

Director: Rajkumar Santoshi

Starring: Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor, Upen Patel


  1. Barfi!

India’s official entry for Oscars in 2012, Barfi is a valuable gem of the Bollywood. A top-notch masterpiece, the contribution of every person in this movie has been truly impeccable. Be it the quality of every element of the movie to the ‘quantity of emotions’ it carries. This movie is the ‘cutest’ rollercoaster of emotions one could sit in. The main couple of the movie, imperfectly perfect for each other, is the sweetest highlight of this movie. Jhilmil and Barfi form a special bond, but then his old lover comes back into his life, making Jhilmil insecure. Ultimately, it ends with audience not getting enough of this jewel. Watch this movie on a date-night to fall in love with them along with the person you love.

Plot: A mute boy, Murphy (who pronounces his name as ‘Barfi’) is left heartbroken by his lover Shruti. He meets the daughter of his father’s employer, Jhilmil who suffers from autism. This is followed by a series of hilarious as well as emotional moments.

Director: Anurag Basu

Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Ileana D’Cruz, Saurabh Shukla


  1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

This movie can be watched on a date night to feel a good rush of emotions. It’s about friendship, falling in love and facing our fears. Likewise, it’s also about healing ourselves from within and living our lives to the fullest. This is one of the very few movies which ‘inspires’ and ‘aspires’. Don't worry, you don't have to travel to Spain for self-discovery. Everyone is not privileged enough to go for a road-trip abroad. Nevertheless, it gives you a lot to ponder over and engage in pursuits of self-growth. Also, brownie points for Javed Akhtar’s poems recited by Farhan Akhtar time and again in the movie.

Plot: Three friends, Kabir, Imran and Arjun embark upon a road trip before Kabir’s marriage. A number of lessons, epiphanies and blessings come to them in the course of their journey.

Director: Zoya Akhtar

Starring: Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif, Kalki Koechlin

  1. The Sky is Pink

This is a drama-comedy biopic based on the life of late Aisha Chaudhary. Not a romantic movie, but it surely gifts you a bag full of mixed emotions. It’s indescribably overwhelming, brimming with warmth and gloom. However, the jovial narration doesn’t turn the movie into a sombre experience. The constant efforts of the protagonist’s parents are soul-touching. So as to ensure the remaining days of their daughter’s life are full of elation and positive vibes. Moreover, their love for each other as well as their fortitude are truly inspiring. The end might leave you overwhelmed, and it makes you tightly hug the person next to you. It’s that moment when you love what you already love even more.

Plot: It is based on the life of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary. The story revolves around her parents’ love story and their efforts to make her short life worthwhile.

Director: Shonali Bose

Starring: Priyanka Chopra, Zaira Wasim, Farhan Akhtar, Rohit Suresh Saraf
