valentines day movies for singles

The Day of love, Valentine's Day has arrived, and just because you are single on this day doesn't mean you shouldn't be celebrating. Rather than getting irritated, or excruciatingly nostalgic looking at other couples, spend the day on self care, pampering and loving yourself. And if you've recently broken up with a cheater ex, it's also time to give yourself a treat you deserve. Give your room a special makeover, bring on your favourite food and munchies, and spend the day watching movies that don't romanticize love but instead portray it through the lens of reality.

Here's a list of movies you can watch on Valentine's day and fall hopelessly in love with yourself.

3. Queen

Where to watch: Netflix

Queen is absolutely the Queen of movies for single people. One of Kangana Ranaut’s best films, this movie is about self-love, wanderlust and much more. 

The film follows Rani, a feeble and naive woman who is about to marry her boyfriend Vijay, but he calls off the wedding at the last minute. Rani, who has been horribly shattered, then decides to embark on their international honeymoon trip alone, and in the process rediscovers herself. The film is all about healing and learning. If you haven't watched this masterpiece, Valentine's Day is the ideal time to see this gem.

4. Bridget Jones's Diary

Where to watch: Prime Video

Bridget Jones's Diary is a loveable British rom-com that revolves around Bridget and her rather complicated love life. It stars Renee Zellweger as Bridget Jones. The film features a lovely, witty, and wonderfully charming tale, with some hilarious scenes to boot. All this makes this movie a must watch for Valentine's Day.

5. Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu

Where to watch: Netflix

Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is a fantastic movie which does not have an ending like any typical love story. This film is an excellent blend of drama and comedy.

It's a story of two people who had a drunken night that leads to an accidental marriage. But the film doesn't end like a cliché love story. Riana's friendzoning of Rahul and the final moment, in which he is shown screaming as though he has finally discovered his freedom, can be rather inspiring and uplifting. It's a Wonderful film with a wonderful ending.

Piku is a touching and wonderful father-daughter story that will warm your heart. This Valentine's Day, you can spend time with your father watching this tale, which is full of comedy and drama that you will both enjoy.

The film also has a quiet chemistry and unspoken romance between Piku (Deepika Padukone) and Rana(Irrfan Khan) which is different and doesn't glorify the idea of a perfect relationship. The perfect story and amazing performances by the actors makes this movie worth a watch.
