Here is the Malayalam Romantic Movie List of 10 best love movies.
A symbol of graceful filmmaking, Malayalam movies have always been beautiful to experience.

The reason is largely the language barrier and the underrecognition of Mallu stars in the rest of India, barring the south. Here is a list of 10 of the best Malayalam romantic movies list which, as per our assessment, are truly iconic and deserving of every bit of acclaim that they receive:
