Broadly speaking, romantic comedies can be divided into two distinct categories namely bad and good. While a poorly made rom-com can bore the audiences with countless clichés, a skillfully crafted one helps viewers escape into a world where love, laughter and tranquility reign supreme.

Luckily, most of the romantic-comedies which enthralled fans of Southern cinema this year belonged to the second category and gave movie buffs a big reason to celebrate. Today, just days before 2015 draws to a close, let us revisit some of the most rib-tickling rom-coms which hit screens this year.

Bhale Bhale Magadivoy: Directed by Maruthi Dasari and featuring Nani in the lead, ‘Bhale Bhale Magadivoy’ revolved around the romantic escapades of an absent-minded young man. Released this September, it became a runaway hit at the box office. Interestingly, the film’s title was taken from a popular song composed by MS Vishwanathan for the Kamal Haasan starrer ‘Maro Charitra’.

Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga: Bringing together the much loved duo of Tamannaah and Arya, ‘Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga’ created a buzz among movie buffs courtesy its simple yet effective plot as well as effortless performances. Released in August, it also featured Vishal and Shayaji Shinde in pivotal roles.

Romeo Juliet: Boasting of some catchy tunes from the popular D Imman, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ revolved around the chequered friendship between a gym instructor and an arrogant young woman. Directed by Laksman, the film earned tremendous critical acclaim courtesy its natural performances and engaging narrative. Moreover, it proved to be a commercial success and collected Rs 31 crores at the ticket window.

Naanum Rowdy Dhaan: Produced by Dhanush and featuring Vijay Sethupathy in the lead, ‘Naanum Rowdy Dhaan’ is perhaps best remembered for its quirky storyline. Shot primarily in Pondicherry, it created a great deal of buzz courtesy its lively promos and not surprisingly became commercial success upon theatrical release.

India Pakistan: Revolving around the bitter sweet friendship between two young advocates, ‘India Pakistan’ brought together the unconventional duo of Vijay Antony and Sushma Raj. And needless to say, the two performers did full justice to their parts, striking up a crackling rapport with each other. Interestingly, the film also featured Pasupathy and Urvashi in pivotal roles.

Premam: One of the most successful Malayalam movies of 2015, ‘Preman’ was shot on a modest budget of Rs 4 crore and ended up raking in over Rs 66 crore at the box office. Directed by Alphonse Putharen, it starred Nivin Pauly and Sai Pallavi.

100 Days of Love: Featuring Malaylam cinema’s latest heartrob Dulquer Salmaan in the lead, ‘100 Days of Love’ focused on the hilarious events that take place when an arrogant reporter insults and humiliates his girlfriend on the social media. Helmed by Jenuse Mohamed it received rave reviews upon release.

Size Zero: Featuring the otherwise glamourous Anushka Shetty in the role of an obese and unattractive women, this Prakash Kovelamudi-directed Telugu movie managed to grab eyeballs courtesy the actress’ new look. Interestingly, it was simultaneously shot in Tamil as ‘Inji Iduppazhagi’. Unfortunately, the movie could not find much success at the ticket window.
