Yes, it’s another discussion post! But one I am excited about and hope you respond to because I think you will all have ideas. What movie did you love, except for the ending?
I just reviewed Veer-Zaara which I found SO FRUSTRATINGI I loved the first half, was tepid about the second half, and then loathed the ending and desperately wished I could rewrite it and fix it so it was as good as the rest of the movie. What film is like that for you?
(My Veer-Zaara Ending: Veer has only been in jail for 5 years and has been trying to get a lawyer and be heard that whole time. He finishes telling his story to Rani, and then she decides to track down his parents in their village. She finds Preity living with them and gets Preity’s side of the story, how she heard of Veer’s death, was inspired to confront her parents and suddenly realized the falseness of their values. Also ended her marriage because now she had the strength to break free all by herself. And Divya has a touching scene when she offers to come to India with Preity. Amitabh and Hema, heartbroken, still manage to welcome Preity with all the honors and ceremony they would give a daughter-in-law. Preity adopts an orphaned little girl and slowly starts to come to life again, while still crying and cursing fate that Shahrukh died before they could be together. The rest plays out as before, except Rani also manages to get a deathbed confession from Manoj, dying of cancer and believing it is his sins that are catching up with him. Shahrukh and Preity return to the village, their love rewarded by the miracle of Shahrukh being saved from death thanks to the Manoj’s interference.)
