Romance doesn’t always have to be about steamy bedroom encounters, lust, and physical attraction. Old school Bollywood was all about romance that makes your heart race and your mind leap up with joy sans any sexual overkill. We bring you 13 romantic movie scenes from the recent past that made us go awww simply with good dialogues, great chemistry, and beautiful music!
By far the most romantic scene of all time, Raj and Simran’s exchange on the bridge is still quoted by young people in love! Come on, you have to admit you’ve used the “Palat palat” trick at least once in your life!
This entire film was one very long ‘Awww’ moment. We bring you here the scene where Rahul tells Aarohi that he loves her.
This film’s highly hyped last scene lived up to all expectations with the then off-screen couple Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor sharing a kiss on screen. Anshuman’s expressions at being dumped are particularly hilarious in this otherwise super Awww scene!
There was chemistry, there was humor and there were two very good looking people upping the aww quotient of this scene!
“Tussi Ja Rahe Ho? Tussi Na Jao!” How can your heart not melt?
Here’s the King of Bollywood, the Badshah of Romance giving you a lesson in how to turn a totally hopeless situation into one that makes hearts go “dhak dhak” instead :)
Skip to 2:00 on the video to witness one of the most romantic scenes of the early 2000s, with the then new B-town hottie Hrithik Roshan at his charming best.
Aishawarya Rai and Salman Khan used to make quite a cute pair and this scene captures their chemistry perfectly. Nandini apologises to Sameer for feeding him too many chillies by now forcing him to have honey :)
This scene between Shahrukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit was hilarious and completely adorable in equal measure.
Aaksh’s proposal speech was so moving, no wonder Shalini dumped her idiot boyfriend and chose our hero instead!
Wasn’t this the cutest proposal ever!?
An imagined scenario slowly becomes real as Karan and Ria realise they are meant for each other. *Goosebumps!*
No one can do romance better than Shahrukh Khan! Case in point: this scene!
