When I was watching an award show yesterday, I kind-of tried to recollect some of the movie-scenes in 2008, which were very touching, and which I enjoyed the most. Since, I had missed out watching certain movies, their scenes might not be there in this list. I know, it’s a bit late to write about 2008 movies, but nonetheless, here is the list.(Spoiler Alert: May contain spoilers]
1. Mumbai meri jaan
The scene where Paresh Rawal, during his retirement party with a few colleagues, confesses that even though he has been a cop all through his life, he has not nabbed a single terrorist or even a thief. He says he will get this satisfaction once he goes back to his village and catch a fox, which has been troubling the villagers since long. Though all his other colleagues were laughing at this joke, there was one of them, who got the underlying meaning.
[Too good. When a person introspects on his past career and compares it with the expectations he had at the start.]
2. Kismat Konnection
The scene where Shahid Kapoor is attempting an impossible billiards shot, when Vidya Balan pushes him to spoil the shot, but eventually the shot is successful.
[It’s a pleasant surprise when a person is told he is lucky, when he is daily fighting with his luck.]
The scene where Prachi comes back home to see Farhan and his friends practice music in their living room.
[When your spouse breaks the typecast and looks a completely different person pursuing his/her interests.]
4. Jaane tu ya Jaane na
The scene where Imran Khan assaults Genelia’s fiancé at his house on discovering that he had hit her.
[Great scene. You have to watch the movie to enjoy it.]
5. A Wednesday
The scene where three of the terrorists get killed.
[Would not reveal anything more, in the interest of readers who have still not seen this movie.]
6. Mumbai meri jaan
The scene where KK discovers that the muslim youth, whom he had been suspecting for an involvement in bomb blasts, was actually missing as he had gone to Shirdi.
[A very touching scene. We often see people with a pre-conceived notion; and when we see the true picture, we realize that we had been wrong all the way.]
7. Sarkaar Raj
The scene where Amitabh shows Dilip Prabhavalkar that he has killed his nephew.
[Great scene. Again, you will have to watch the movie to enjoy it.]
8. Welcome to Sajjanpur
The scene where Shreyas Talpade, while reading a letter from Amrita Rao’s husband, discovers that he is planning to sell his kidney to purchase a small slum-dwelling in Mumbai so that she can shift with him.
[Very touching scene]
The climax scene row between Rahul Bose and KK. I admit it is copy-paste from Tom Cruise starrer A Few Good Men, but the scene was executed very well.
10. Rab ne bana di jodi
The scene where Anushka Sharma, leaving her grief and confinement, comes out to greet guests at Shahrukh’s place.
[A very pleasant scene]
