5 Best Friends to Lovers Movies

13 Going on 30 – 2004

As kids, most of us fall in love with adult life, watching the grown-ups enjoying their freedom. Likewise, in this movie, a 13-year-old dreams to become a rich woman, and surprisingly, her wish is granted with a twist. She becomes a 30-year-old successful woman but still is a 13-year-old child inside. The only moral support she gets is from her childhood buddy (who is now a grown man). When she falls for him, things don’t go as planned. Will the childhood friends work it out? Will the girl understand that natural growth is much more beautiful than a hasty one?

The movie became a big hit, thanks to Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo. Jennifer Garner acted so well that she portrayed wonderfully as Jenna, a 13-year-old soul trapped inside the body of a celebrity woman. Her innocence and her wit, in contrast with Mark Ruffalo’s maturity, intensified the movie. Additionally, their dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller song, to date, is appreciated.

Oh My Kadavule – 2020

When it comes to a trio with one woman and two men, it’s natural either two of them will fall in love. That said, in Oh My Kadavule, Anu falls in love with her best friend Arjun, and confesses to him. Thankfully, the other friend Mani ships them two. Arjun, a mischievous young man, accepts Anu and they get married. However, their marriage falls apart when Arjun comes to his senses and realises that he doesn’t have feelings for her.

When they both apply for divorce, a supernatural entity gives Arjun a chance to go back to the day when Anu confessed, so he can decline and start afresh. But when he proceeds with the second chance, little does he know it’s too late to get back Anu, the woman he actually has been in love with ever since. The movie is so heartwarming in terms of friendship and romance, that the main leads started to date in real life. You’ve got to watch this if you love Kdrama vibes!
