Valentine’s Day is upon us, meaning now’s the time to plan out your day. Some prefer a quiet date or a cute Pinterest inspired picnic, while others opt for a surprise breakfast-in-bed or a playlist. But we have the ideal way to make your evening calm, cool and hint: a bit more, well, romantic.
We have the perfect movie collection for you to enjoy Valentine’s Day with your loved one. Thank us later!
Team FUCHSIA got together for this one and pooled in with their favorite movies. So let’s see what the movie marathon holds!
1. The Hating Game
The Hating Game is the perfect movie to watch when you’re bundled up at home on Valentine’s Day. The book to movie adaptation follows the typical enemies to lovers story. Sounds a bit cliched but stay with us. The plot is fairly easy to follow and while there are no major plot twists, the movie still makes for an engaging watch.
Lucy Hale and Austin Stowell (the main leads) do justice to their characters and their character development will have you swooning for more!
From work place animosity to appearances of Smurf figurines (which we haven’t seen since the 90s), the movie delivers on all aspects and is a must watch this 14th February!

2. To All The Boys – The Trilogy
Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky – the fictional teen couple everyone fell in love with instantly! Lara Jean with her true hopeless romantic self and innocence, Peter with his oh-so-dreamy personality and charm won us over.
From the first film to the last, we counted the days and… spoiler – cried because it ended too soon! Yes that’s the effect it has! The teen mind, behavior, attitude and how they tackle the issues that come their way really make us think about the smaller, yet significant things.
To All The Boys is the perfect trilogy to binge-watch this weekend and on Valentine’s Day. If you haven’t watched it, it’s worth your time!

It is a light, romantic, feel good movie, directed by Vivek Soni, which depicts the priorities of today’s young couples and the challenges they face trying to manage what they want to achieve in life and preserving their relationship. The film also gives us heart melting, hummable melodies for you to sit back and enjoy on Valentine’s Day.

4. Pretty Woman – The Ultimate 90s Rom-Com
This one has us every time despite the many years since young Julia Roberts and Richard Gere share the screen, giving us performances of a lifetime and a film for generations to come!
Pretty Woman follows Vivian Ward and Edward Lewis and the story of how how their paths cross. The unexpected turn of events, their banter, Vivian’s innocence and Edward’s non-commitable behaviour and the subsequent realization that he loves her – it’s safe to say, it’s a win win for sure
Fun fact: The film features the song ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’ by Roy Orbinson, to which Roberts gives the perfect playful vibe. Get it from us, you’ll find yourself grooving to it too!

5. A Star Is Born – Passionate, Raw & Tragically Romantic
Jackson & Ally singing Shallow is all I need to feel eternal love! Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga positively shine in this movie. It transcends & peels away superficial layers of romance & reaches out to the very core of what makes us sacrifice for love, and whom we hold dearest to our hearts.
A Star Is Born is not just a heavy watch, it is a very, very heavy watch. Miles away from the rom com feel, this one means business. But the film stays with you long after the final scene. There is a haunting tragic romance feel in every frame – Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper mirror pure, untainted, yet relatable love!
It is also interesting to note that Bradley, (who directed the film as well as playing the lead), underwent extensive vocal coaching for this one. You can catch all of that as he sits opposite & then beside Lady Gaga to belt out the Oscars version of Shallow – absolutely mind-blowing, tearful & so very powerful!
A Star Is Born Reminds Us What We Are Capable Of Doing For Love – There is a ‘selfless’ in all of us

7. Tamasha – A Unique Take On Love
It doesn’t fit the quintessential “romantic movie” that you would typically go for. It does have romance, just not how we are used to seeing it. It takes us into a way deeper place.
Tamasha takes us on a journey of two people in love who bring out the best out in each other. It depicts perfectly how love is not always rainbows and butterflies but love is when you let your partner be who they are, in fact, help them recognise who they are and give them the courage to be who they want to be – and that’s the beauty of it. You fall, you get up and always find a way back to each other because that’s the one place you’re the happiest.
8. Love, Rosie – Fall In Love All Over Again
Love, Rosie is a very emotional and twisted love story of two childhood best friends, Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin). The two go through many downfalls individually but never give up on each other because of their true friendship and hidden sentiment – love.
The film has hidden layers, a deeper meanings which are:
- Your one mistake can ruin your plans, but you should not give up.
- Sometimes, everything we need is right in front of us, but we fail to realize it soon.
- If you love someone, tell them before it’s too late.
- It’s perfectly fine & never too late to start your living life according to what makes you happy.
- If real love exists, it will eventually find its way.
The spectacular cinematography and the chemistry between the two best friends are so close to reality. It’s a must-watch movie if you think, you are in love with your best friend!
