As you are in India, it would help to know what speaker brands are available there.

Well, you need to do auditions, and go with the ones YOU like the best. I ones you list, either I have not auditioned in years, or not at all.

You'll get a better result for the same money with bookshelves. The low frequency range where floor standers work better than book shelves is covered by the subs. You can put the money you save towards a 5.1 system. 2.1 is good for music, but leaves 3 unused audio tracks for HT.

You will have a hard time going wrong with KEF, Monitor Audio, or PSB.

I would recommend that you look at those 3 and pick out the size and price that works for you.

Actually, you did not mention anything about importing...of coarse that opens up a wide range of choices.
The problem with relying on imports that are not available locally, is you most likely have not auditioned most of them previously.
We all have different hearing and what one person likes another may not.
At least a decade ago there were rave reviews of DefTech...never heard them until a Best Buy store opened where I lived.
imo, they were junk compared to what I already had.

But if you want MY personal choices:
JBL
Infinity
Energy
Paradigm
Polk
