Iconic Rain Scenes in Bollywood

With the arrival of the rains, the scorching temperatures of summer in most of India have abated. The dry, parched browns of the cities are slowly turning a lush green.

Bollywood never ceases to celebrate the magic of rains. Over the years, countless movies have used the rain in various ways. Rains depict romance, with the hero and heroine drenched and oblivious to the world. It is about moments of sheer abandon and joy. It is about hope and disappointment, with those thick grey clouds that refuse to pour. It is about introducing the heroine, as she sings and dances her way into the audience’s hearts. Here’s looking at the most memorable rain sequences from Hindi films that we’ve seen recently.

Aashiqui 2

This rain sequence from the hit song Tum hi ho sung by Arijit Singh struck a chord with many fans. The signature moment of the two leads under a coat looked spectacular.

In one of the most memorable roles of her career, we see Kareena Kapoor’s worldly-wise hooker Chameli enjoy monsoons in a deeply reflective and lyrical tone with Bhaage re man, even as her companion of the night, looks on, fascinated.

Hum Tum

Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan’s tempestuous chemistry in Kunal Kohli’s much loved romantic comedy Hum Tum culminates in a heart-warming dream sequence. The couple is seen giving into their feelings for each other for the first time.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Many hearts of KJo fans stop at the mere mention of this moment from his directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. When college friends Rahul and Anjali are reunited after several years, sparks fly and how!

Namak Halal

And finally, Aaj rapat jayen, featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil in Namak Halal. The reckless abandon of new love is perfectly portrayed by this onscreen couple in this romantic sequence.
