One dictionary definition is a movie, play, or television program about a love story that ends happily. Another definition states that its primary distinguishing feature is a plot in which two sympathetic and well-matched lovers are united or reconciled. Romantic comedy films are a genre of comedy films as well as of romance films. However a romantic comedy is classified as a film with two genres not a new genre. Some television series can also be classified as romantic comedies, a wedding-bells, fairy-tale-style happy ending is practically mandatory.
The basic plot of a comedy is that two characters meet, part ways due to an argument or other obstacle, then ultimately reunite. Sometimes the two meet and become involved initially, then must confront challenges to their union. Sometimes they are hesitant to become involved because they believe that they do not like each other, because one of them already has a partner.
However, the screenwriters leave clues that suggest that the characters are, in fact, attracted to each other, the protagonists often separate or seek time apart to sort out their feelings or deal with the external obstacles to their being together. While the two protagonists are separated, one or both of them realizes that they are ideal for each other, or that they are in love with each other.
Then, after one of the two makes some effort to find the other person and declare their love, or through an astonishing coincidental encounter.
Then, perhaps with some comic friction or awkwardness, they declare their love for each other, the couple does not, however, have to marry, or live together happily ever after. The ending of a comedy is meant to affirm the primary importance of the love relationship in its protagonists lives.

Janaki amma is very fond of the sad version of this song but sharing the happy version to show how beautifully CNR garu compared the situation of the friends to two different birds in same nest and explained that friendship is beyond any materialism of the world! Gunnamamidi song, mentioned above is a classic example for that. This song is all about dreams of a young girl about her marriage and having kids. When all her dreams are devastated, she sings the sad version. Janaki amma got to sing in many of those movies.
Especially in Sri Krishna satya, Gems!! Picked this song even leaving other hits just to show the greatness of CNR. Neekela Intha Nirasa — Aaradhana Aradhana, a musical it is.!
But, CNR garu is a clear exception for that. Every song of his carried his own signature. Janaki amma sang this with all of her heart and soul!! Which song to pick from the three duets! Every song is a lyrical beauty with expressive singing. It is challenging in terms of handling the situation of a wife teaching her husband how to make love to her. CNR gave a divine look to it by comparing the holy union of a wife-husband to that of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi.
Every thing he touched was melodious.! It is a folk melody of a young village girl comparing herself to beauties of nature and establishing that she is far better than anything else! It seems as if he tried not being himself but could not help delivering the best! But, look at the lines he used in this song. Neerajanam movie did not make big in theatres.
