Yash Chopra love stories look like a beautiful painting on the big screen. And the highlight of this epic musical was its songs. Gorgeous Madhuri Dixit represents the character of a girl who believes in fairytales and prince charming. This film is the perfect balance of friendship and romance and it is depicted beautifully in the film. In this film people find it hard to decide whether to support Nisha's unreciprocated love for Rahul or  to cheer for the love that was meant to be of Pooja and Rahul’s. The scenes of Madhuri dancing her heart out  and Shah Rukh allowing his charm take over, and owns his love for the woman - it all indeed like poetry in motion.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)
IMDb

"Pyaar Dosti Hai" -perhaps one of the most common dialogue of Shah Rukh Khan. No one can forget the sedateness with which he delivered that dialogue. How important friendship is for love to finally takes place, this film shows it beautifully. The idea of love and beauty in today’s world has evolved in many ways and it makes the film not fit in today's idea of romance. In the film the college girl who is everyone's best friend, the guy to whom every girl is attracted - it might not seems an ideal couple. But probably this is why it reverberate with the young crowd back then.

Devdas is call poetry in motion. Devdas was like a dream come true on the big screen. The magjnificience and old-school romance spelled magic on screen. Shah Rukh played a wealthy law graduate, his sharp-suited looks charming and every stare of his hits you with intensity. The songs of this film narrate the chemistry adds magic to it. A hardcore fan would feel the pain with which Shah Rukh's character clear up onscreen. This is love that has been take care of and prepared for a long time.

Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003)
Prime Video

Good-looking cast, good songs, and perfect jokes that a rom-com should have. A matured version couldn't understand the pain with which Shah-Rukh's character unselfishly makes the love of his life choose someone else. It is courageous but then the lesson it taught us how to love someone unconditionally. Shah Rukh Khan in Kal Ho Naa Ho not only stood as a witnesst to true friendship between Aman and Rohit but it also was the epitome of loving without logic.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012)
Yash Raj Films

A rugged look for SRK and a love triangle- but the same gaze of SRK after all these years makes you paralyze. The character of Shah Rukh Khan interests us as how love can changes you. From a happy guy, the evolution of his heartbreak forced to let go of the woman he loves.
