Embarking upon this week of love, in this month of love, we at BollyCurry decided to bring to our readers a week long treat for the Valentines week.

As an ode to the 14th of February, popularly tagged Valentine's Day, we present to you the 14 Most Romantic scenes of Bollywood, during the decade 2001-2010. All of this week we shall bring back to you memories of Hindi Cinema's most romantic onscreen moments, with two scenes a day. They shall, we hope, have you relive some wonderful memories associated with the times of those movie releases, and in many cases, their real life parallels or close!

Starting today with the bottom 2 on this list of top 14, we sure hope you will enjoy this week long journey down the memory lane with us - with fond hearts and fonder memories - just in time to mark Valentines, next week, same day!


Movie: 3 Idiots (2009: Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor)
Scene: Lovers' reunion in Ladakh

3 Idiots, a thematic adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's bestseller, Five Point Someone was 2009's biggest blockbuster - in shooting up instant popularity charts, in grossing profits, and in sweeping the award ceremonies eventually. A satirical take on the Indian education system, 3 Idiots makes a subtle but distinct point of the pressures of competition on the youth, its very dire, and far reaching consequences, and most importantly, the misguided approach to a life of success. Despite the seemingly grave theme, this high on fundas flick is a laughter riot, imparting its share of hard lessons along the way.

With the overall domination of adolescent fun and frolic in the setting of 3 Idiots, we find our 'most romantic' scene from the movie, right at the end of the movie! It is, no prizes for guessing, the scene of reunion of the lovers - Rancho (Aamir Khan)and Pia (Kareena Kapoor) - on a breath taking site in Ladakh. With Rancho finding the visual of his longtime everyday dream coming true - Pia on her famous scooty, lovely in the wedding costume, taking her helmet off instead of the customary ghoongat and slowly walking towards him... except, the comic tinge can't help but surface when the kiss of his dreams is replaced by a hard indignant slap lashed across his face! It makes one smile when Rancho puts on the confused and cute expression, and apologizes. Their brief rapid fire catching up on each others current stats in the five years they have lost touch is endearing and funny all at once - and definitely not cliche. When he tells her he's in love, and she questions who with the evident green monster looming large on her heart, he says you - and the confession happens all over again, to be sealed with a lovely kiss!

Breaking out of a lip lock (which heats up the scene despite all its comic element) she mocks his unresolved anticipation from once upon a time, by pointing out that their noses never crashed - and he cutely agrees!

Refreshing in its own way, the romance of this scene, just like the entire movie, is nothing like usual Bolly romance, but one that easily wins over the audiences.

Starting today with the bottom 2 on this list of top 14, we sure hope you will enjoy this week long journey down the memory lane with us - with fond hearts and fonder memories - just in time to mark Valentines, next week, same day!


Aisha (2010: Abhay Deol, Sonam Kapoor)
Scene: Balcony confession

For the movie to be an adaptation of Victorian romance queen Jane Austen's Emma, and for the scene to be a contemporary reminiscence of Shakespeare's serenading genius created in Romeo and Juliet - the confession scene between Arjun (Abhay Deol) and Aisha (Sonam Kapoor) on the balcony is a must have on this list. That, despite the unfortunate fairing of the movie itself at Box Office.

The movie, as per its inspiring literary work, is the story of a lovely fair maiden, who's only but significant shortcoming is the vanity of her heart. She dwells in pride not over her fortune or beauty, but on what she misunderstands to be her social serving psychological genius - in matching couples! The man, her knight in the shining armor, is different in own ways - never letting show of his long harbored love, and always managing to get on her wrong side by being the reprimanding elder. Eventually however, through all the blunders she makes and he forgives, they come to a point in their lives, where Arjun and Aisha are no longer on talking terms over a nasty showdown. It gives Aisha the time to mature much faster than all her years have previously allowed, and her realization of love is bittersweet - where she finally understands what he means to her, but fears at the same time that she has lost his affections for herself to another.

It is at that point, after confessing her love publicly at a wrong marriage venue, when she's defeated for the moment, that her hero returns with pelting stones at her first floor bedroom window and climbs up the fearfully aging and rusty wooden ladder to profess his love, to enlist all her mistakes from growing up that he unfailing covered up for her, and to claim she has always been the one - through all those silly follies!

Just one of those cliche love scenes rendered in a whole new way - which stands true to the nature of the chick lit Victorian novel, and the chick flick it claims to be!

Starting today with the bottom 2 on this list of top 14, we sure hope you will enjoy this week long journey down the memory lane with us - with fond hearts and fonder memories - just in time to mark Valentines, next week, same day!


That brings us to the end of Day 1.

We shall look forward most eagerly to hearing back from our readers about this week long series of articles. While at it, we would also like to tell you that commenting and naming your personal favorite romantic scenes from Bollywood movies of the past decade can sure shoot them up in our list, and bring them forth to you during this week.

So stay tuned, tell us about your favorites, and you can be sure to relive them here, with the BollyCurry unit!

So long... until tomorrow!

    About Aisha that was ok but i don't like 3 idiots as it's not that much romantic.

    3 Idiots romantic scene was the cutest!! Awwww! Loved it! <3 idea on Aisha.

    And people wanting TV romantic scenes...LOL. I think you guys came to the wrong section. Why would the BW section show TV scenes??! Seriously guys, there is a limit to all that crazy fan-ness.

    I love 3 idiots but that wasn't really romantic :P I can find 50 romantic scenes that top that haha

    But ahh wells, it's all a matter of opinion

  • Posted on: 07 February 2011 at 11:53amhindu4lyf

    None of them were that romantic for me.
    I absolutely love 3 idiots but there are better romantic scenes. C'mon..Bollywood is the land of romantic and soppy dialogues..surely you guys can do a better job than 3 idiots and Aisha?!
    Oh and I'd probably rank KHNH as being the most romantic scene but it'll be interesting to see what BC writers come up with.

    Not Good ..!!! :P

    Nope, very wrong choices!!
    There are heck more better scenes than these two. 3 idiots scene was horrible. Urrgghhhh!!!

    All the scenes of SRKajol, Devdas, Vivah, Kal Ho Na Ho, Saathiya, Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, Namastay London etc has so much better scenes than these two. Wonder who chose them? :S
