Romantic Movies of 2014 you Must Watch
Not Such a Bad Year After All!
Regardless of sparking a nationwide controversy, PK not only got the cash registers ringing but it also has made the year 2014 end on a successful note for Bollywood. With releases like Ugly, Mardaani, Haider and Citylights, the Indian cinema tried to nip some issues right in the bud last year.

Though the number remained comparatively low, the year did witness some splendid performances and intriguing romantic fables. So, if amidst all the action and thrill you lost sight of some of the amazing romantic flicks, the following list will help you to catch up.
