Valentine’s Bracket: Best Love Scenes!!!

Oh boy! This is gonna be really REALLY tricky. I started out thinking “easy! No problem!” and then I got into it and it is difficult.

Most difficult part: How to illustrate the options! Scenes are tricky, you may not remember them from the film, and I may not be able to find clips or even images to remind you. So I am going with the best image I can find plus a description. Based on that, you will have to choose for each bracket whether or not you have seen them!

Bracket 1

      • Nah, still pick the mustard field. I think we discussed this earlier – I just CANNOT take Kajol seriously in most of her “it’s-so-sexy-I’m-in-pain” scenes. She just looks like she’s in pain. And then she, as a 28 YEAR OLD, runs away! What.

        That scene always makes me crack up.

  2. Okay, love this! I’m not familiar with all these scenes, but I’ll give it my best shot!

    1. Jai-Radha
    2. Kunal-Sam. Haven’t seen either, but this seems better!
    3. DDLJ
    4. Mughal-e-Azam. Mostly because the movie acknowledges how annoying both characters are.
    5. JHMS.
    6. DTPH. I don’t like the movie per se, but this scene has a pretty cool adaptation elsewhere, so I pick this.
    7. Humpty
    8. Hasee Toh Phasee. Haven’t watched it, but the description + the fact that I just can’t take Prem seriously makes Hasee win out.
    9. Jodha-Akbar. Not a fan of Devdas, blech.

  8. Some of these were so easy and some were impossible.

    1. Gazebo Scene KKHH
    2. Proposal in Gadar
    3. JHMS (I am one of the few that just doesn’t find that mustard scene as romantic as everyone else).
    4. Peacock feather Mughal E Azam
    5. Bahubali sword scene!
    6. Jab we Met kiss. This was a tough call.
    7. Humpty Sharma after sex scene (it’s technically not the morning after scene. It’s right after they have sex before they fall asleep. Kavya leaves him before he wakes up the morning after). I love this scene SOOOO much!!
    8. Hasee Toh Phasee but I also LOVE the scene from Maine Pyar Kiya. This was an impossible choice!
    9. Jodha Akbar. This was the easiest choice ever!
    10. Bunty Aur Babli.

    Like

  9. 1. Gazebo Scene
    2. Neither sound great, but I guess I’ll go with the Dostana kiss since that’s the only one I’ve seen between the two.
    3. This one was a toughie. I love the JHMS kiss, but I’m going with DDLJ here. It’s so cinematic and timeless, and you can tell they really, deeply love each other without the physicality of a kiss, which I always applaud Indian cinema for doing so well.
    4. Haven’t seen either, but I’m going Mughal-e-Azam. Sounds lovely. And not a fan of slapping in the other one.
    5. JHMS. The Bahubaali one sounds cool, but more as a war scene and comradery, not romance.
    6. Ooh, this one’s interesting. I’ve seen Jab We Met, but not DTPH, but that one sounded interesting enough that I looked it up. However, I’m still going with Jab We Met. Not a fan of that kind of teasing in DTPH.
    7. HUMPTY!!!! It’s been so many years and I still can’t watch that scene without crying.
    8. HASEE TOH PHASEE!!!! It’s been so many years and I still can’t watch that scene without getting hot and sqiurmy.
    9. Jodha Akbar. Love the female gaze.
    10. Those both sound adorable!!! Bunty aur Babli just sounds a tab more romantic and sweet, so I’m picking that one.
