The songs, delightful dance numbers and chitter-chatter between lovers Nandini (Aishwarya Rai) and Sameer (Salman Khan) make for a light first half. However, the second half gets heavy with the entry of Vanraj (Ajay). It becomes too sentimental towards the end with Salman, Aishwarya and Ajay getting into a love triangle. But if you love watching romantic tragedies, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam is a perfect pick.

Taal

Streaming on: ZEE5

The 1999 romantic musical drama, with a love triangle involving Mansi (Aishwarya Rai), Manav (Akshaye Khanna) and Vikrant (Anil Kapoor) at the centre of its plot, is directed by Subhash Ghai. Aishwarya nails her part as a simple girl from Himachal Pradesh who decides to make it big after her father is insulted by her lover’s family. Anil Kapoor also plays his part of a street-smart music composer well. AR Rahman’s music is the icing on the cake.

Set in a town called Vasco in Goa, the film revolves around two rival street gangs, Eagles headed by SRK’s Max and Bichoo by Sharad Kapoor’s Prakash Sharma. Prakash’s younger brother Rahul (Chandrachur Singh) falls in love with Max’s twin sister Shirley (Aishwarya) leading to a deadly fight between the two gangs. Watch the film if you are in a mood for some action-packed masala entertainment.

Mohabbatein

The Aditya Chopra directorial is packed with dollops of romance, delightful locations, lovely costumes, and song and dance sequences. The movie stars Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Amitabh Bachchan, Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty, Jugal Hansraj, Kim Sharma, Jimmy Sheirgill, Anupam Kher and Archana Puran Singh among others.

A screen adaptation of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s novel of the same name, Devdas stars Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles. Unable to marry his childhood love Paro (Aishwarya) because of his family’s opposition, Devdas (Shah Rukh) takes to alcohol and finds an escape in courtesan Chandramukhi (Madhuri). The Sanjay Leela Bhansali film is popular to this day for the exemplary performances and magnificent dance and song sequences.

Khakee

Streaming on: YouTube

Rajkumar Santoshi’s cop movie is a well-made film starring Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Aishwarya Rai, Prakash Raj and Tusshar Kapoor in significant roles. Big B dominates Khakee with his ‘honest senior officer of the law’ act, and Akshay’s comic timing saves the film from being just another cop drama. But it is Aishwarya’s deceptive character Mahalakshmi which comes as the real surprise in the action drama.

Raincoat
