Dilan 1990 (2018)
This Indonesian romantic film has succeeded in attracting millions of viewers to the cinema. Dilan 1990 takes the background of Bandung in the 90s. It tells the story of Milea (Vanesha Prescilla), a student from Jakarta who recently moved to Bandung. While at school, she is approached by a boy named Dilan (Iqbaal Ramadhan).

At first, Milea felt uncomfortable with Dilan. Moreover, he is also known as a delinquent student at school. As time went on, Milea melted away from Dilan's attention, and they decided to date.

The story between Dilan and Milea is based on the novel by Pidi Baiq of the same title, and its sequels are also adapted into movies following its success, respectively "Dilan 1991" (2019) and "Milea" (2020).

Ada Apa Dengan Cinta? (2002)
The next Indonesian romantic movie is the legendary all-time favorite: Ada Apa Dengan Cinta, starring Dian Sastrowardoyo and Nicholas Saputra. In addition, this film also stars famous Indonesian actresses, such as Adinia Wirasti, Titi Kamal, and Sissy Priscilla. It released its long awaited Ada Apa Dengan Cinta 2 in 2016, but let's start with the original.

This film tells the story of a love story during high school between Cinta (Dian Sastrowardoyo) and Rangga (Nicholas Saputra). Their romance began when Cinta lost to a poetry competition at school. At that time, the winner of the competition was Rangga, a solitary boy.

Curious, Cinta tried to interview Rangga about his victory in the poetry competition. However, Rangga's arrogant attitude made her a little annoyed.

Strangely, gradually, Cinta fell in love with Rangga because they both liked literature. However, their love journey did not go smoothly and instead caused conflicts, especially because Cinta became distant from her friends when she was with Rangga. Then, who should she choose?
