7 Must-Watch Malayalam Romantic Hits

Team FC

Premam (2015)

The heartbeat of Malayalam romance movies, Premam was a breakout hit that is a bittersweet tale of not one, not two, but three love stories of George, played by the loveable Nivin Pauly. The unconventional beauty of the storyline along with the interwoven connections between the three tales makes it a must-watch for romance enthusiasts.

Namakku Parkkan Munthiri Thoppukal (1986)

An ode to undying love that persists through pain and unending suffering, this Mohanlal-starrer was a pioneer of the romantic genre due to it absolving from the tried and tested formula of romance stories. It explores a slowburn development of a romantic connection of Solomon and his neighbour.

Annayum Rasoolum (2013)

Speaking of unconventional, another fan-favourite yet tragic love story is one of Anna and Rasool, played by the enigmatic Fahadh Faasil and Andrea Jeremiah. The journey of falling in love deeply and madly spares none, and when everything pulls them apart, what happens to the relationship?

Mayaanadhi (2017)

The undeniable chemistry between Tovino Thomas and Aishwarya Lekshmi is on full display in this tragic story of Mathan, who is on the run after accidentally killing a police officer, and Aparna, an aspiring actress. Mathan takes the danger-laden decision of visiting Aparna before leaving, which has dire consequences.

Thoovanathumbikal (1987)

When Jayakrishnan tries to juggle two lives, one with his friends and one in the village, he finds himself falling for both Radha and Clara and as his worlds collide, problems ensue. Mohanlal takes the lead once again alongside Sumalatha and Parvathi in this highly acclaimed hit.

Sukhamo Devi (1986)

Nandan is in love with Devi, but circumstances force Devi to marry someone else. Meanwhile, Thara loses her lover Sunny in an accident. As the paths of these two intertwine, they unite in marriage. The lead role is played by none other than Mohanlal, yet again! Truly the face of Malayalam romance and cinema.

Premalu (2024)

This new-age Malayalam love story is laughter-filled, obnoxious, yet strangely heartwarming. Sachin falls for a woman but finds himself at the mercy of a love-triangle, falling into unexpected complications. Will he rise above the obstacles and find the love he yearns for? Starring the modern heartthrob Naslen, this is a fun one.
