Every Valentine’s season, many rummage through watchlists struggling to find just the kind of movie that would capture the emotion and hit the spot. After all, date night movies can be a struggle and finding a watch that’s worthy and compatible with the significant other can be a challenge. Mainstream media and pop culture have carved a certain construct for romantic relationships which have translated into various eternal love stories. A popular subgenre happens to be teenage romantic fantasies which serve as love stories and escapist adventures that effectively capture the imagination of young adults across the globe. So for today’s List hai toh hit hai, we have curated a list of teen fantasy films you can stream on OTT platforms.
Beautiful Creatures (Hungama Play, LionsgatePlay, VI Movies)
Beautiful Creatures is a fantasy teen drama based on the young adult novels by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia. The film narrates the story of a boy named Ethan, essayed by Solo: A Star Wars Story lead Alden Ehrenreich. Ethan quite literally meets the girl of his dreams one day, but she happens to harbour a dark and mystical secret. Alice Englert stars opposite Ehrenreich as Lena, with supporting roles played by Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, and Zoey Deutch. We can assure you of one thing, no creatures were hurt in the making of this film.
Twilight (LionsgatePlay, Google Play rental, Apple TV rental, YouTube rental)
Easily one of the most popular titles on this list, Twilight is Catherine Hardwicke’s adaptation of Stephanie Meyers’ eponymous novel. Some argue that the young adult novel has done irreversible damage to the vampire genre, particularly for its problematic theme and uninspired story. But for a certain TG that relishes the idea of a blood-sucking vampire who just can’t help himself, it remains a gratifying watch. The film’s popularity can also be measured by the fact that it triggered a slew of sequels for fans of the film who just couldn’t get enough of the film’s hopeless romantics. Starring Robert Pattinson and Kirsten Stewart in the lead, the film revolves around a teenage girl who falls in love with a 100-year-old vampire who is cursed to live forever as a 17-year-old boy. Now that’s one way to fight the seven signs of aging.
Warm Bodies (LionsgatePlay, Google Play rental, YouTube rental)
Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer essay lead roles in the horror comedy Warm Bodies. Directed by Jonathan Levine, the story follows a teenager named Julie who lives in a world devastated by a zombie apocalypse. While on a routine scavenger hunt to find medical supplies, her group is attacked by zombies. However, one of the zombies feels an odd connection with Julie and saves her from the attacking horde of other zombies. The zombie who calls himself R slowly begins to regain his humanity and develops feelings for Julie. This unusual love story may not be as glamorous as Twilight, but it ironically has more life and warmth. After all, zombie lives matter.
Beastly (Prime Video)
A high-school bully named Kyle torments a girl named Kendra, without being aware of the fact that she is a witch. An enraged Kendra, played by Mary-Kate Olsen, curses him to take the form of a deformed demon. Now, he can only regain his human form once he finds true love. Titled, Beastly, this loose adaptation of Beauty and the Beast stars Alex Pettyfer in the lead, with Vanessa Hudgens essaying the role of his future love interest Linda. Can’t tell a beast from a beauty? The face tattoos are a dead giveaway.
The In Between (Netflix)
Hollywood actress Joey King is quietly establishing herself as a future star with recent hits such as Bullet Train. Her 2022 film The In Between may not have garnered universal appeal but has gained a cult following since its release. Directed by Israeli-American filmmaker Arie Posin, the film revolves around a girl named Tessa who tragically loses her boyfriend in a car accident. However, she soon discovers that she is able to connect with him from the afterlife and she begins to hope that their love story can get the closure it deserves. Adele’s Hello from the other side would’ve been an apt inclusion to this soundtrack.
The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (Amazon Prime Video)
The sci-fi film The Map of Tiny Perfect Things narrates the story of a teenager named Mark, who is stuck in a time loop, reliving the same day over and over again. Now, we know, most of these films end up being, well, repetitive. But in this one, our lead decides to help people around him by creating routines and anticipating their movements. Hell, he even falls in love with a girl who he helps every day. But when she doesn’t reciprocate his feelings as she has no memory of him, this film gets momentarily heart-breaking. Luckily, our hero here doesn’t give up and teams up with a friend to try and break the loop and return to his normal life.
Ella Enchanted (Amazon rental, Apple TV rental)
Hollywood star Anne Hathaway shot to stardom after the remarkable success of the 2001 film The Princess Diaries. Despite starring in commercial hits in the years that followed, her 2004 fantasy love story Ella Enchanted bombed at the box office. However, her rise to popularity has brought this lesser-known film back to the spotlight. Hathaway essays the titular role of Ella, a young woman who is forced to obey anyone’s command after a magical spell was cast on her when she was born. But her new step-family hopes to exploit her situation as she begins to fall in love with a Prince. We give this one four glass slippers.
