Indian films were always based on different genres. Be it a Thriller, Action, Drama, Romance, Family, etc. One component that remained constant irrespective of the genre is “LOVE”, its essence, and its impact. Though the subject ‘Romance & Love; remains common, it becomes special, and any film becomes a high profile movie based on the storyline and director's touch.
