Hola tribe! Are you enjoying the monsoon?
The proverb "When it rains, it pours” is all too common in our country. And if it's going to continue to rain, we might as well get sentimental and attempt to savour the memories of past rainy days with a hot cup of tea and some of our favourite snacks!
These movies show that while a little rain is capable of dampening our plans and moods, it may not necessarily be a terrible thing. In reality, it has preserved some of the most iconic scenes in movie history. So here’s looking at the best rain scenes we’ve witnessed till date!
This moment, in which Allie questions Noah (Ryan Gosling) about why he hasn't written to her in seven years, demonstrates the beautiful chemistry between the two actors. She sobs because she thinks it's too late. But he says, "I wrote to you everyday for a year. It wasn't over, It still isn’t over.” It’s too heartwarming to watch!
The Shawshank Redemption
There are a lot of positive and inspiring films out there, but there's something unique about The Shawshank Redemption, Frank Darabont's magnum masterpiece from 1994. Tim Robbins' character Andy Dufresne is met with a deluge of rain as he eventually escapes Shawshank Prison. One of the most legendary rain moments in movies takes place when he extends his arms and looks up, letting the rain fall all over him.
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Four Weddings and a Funeral, one of the most well-known British movies, ends with Andie MacDowell and Hugh Grant escaping from the wrong partners and eventually confessing their love for one another. The fact that the climax is set in the rain may be totally appropriate given that this is the finest example of a worldwide audience's perception of England. It’s a must watch movie for all the hopeless romantics!
Despite being almost two decades old, The Upside Down Kiss is still regarded as one of the most romantic moments in cinematic history. Spider-Man, portrayed by Tobey Maguire, hangs upside down from his web and kisses Mary Jane played by Kirsten Dunst in the middle of New York City on a rainy night after saving her from a bunch of goons.
Singin’ In The Rain
In contrast to all the other movies, the sequence from Singin' in the Rain is so well-known that it hardly needs to be described. For the past 70 years, the scene has been endlessly parodied over numerous TV shows and movies. As he dances along the street in the pouring rain and jumps on lampposts in the movie, Don Lockwood is utterly ecstatic after walking Kathy home. It demonstrates to the audience that life is more than just waiting for the storm to pass.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, the film's leading duo, and their on-screen divine chemistry made Karan Johar's directorial debut, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, a massive hit. The characters that SRK and Kajol play in KKHH, Raj and Anjali, discover that they were destined to be together after a passionate dance in the rain. Isn’t it dreamy? Yes, it is!
Wake Up Sid
The narrative in the film is between two strangers who cross paths in Mumbai. The first rain of the season begins to fall as soon as they become aware of their emotions for one another. The performance of Sid and Aisha, played by Ranbir Kapoor and Konkana Sen Sharma, was quite amazing. Undoubtedly, It is one of the best bollywood movies till date!
This moment of rain in Lagaan was kicked off by a village suffering from a drought, a team of peasants competing for a chance to earn a remission on an unfair tax, and a stressful cricket match. The first rain of the season, timed to coincide with the villagers' triumph over the Britishers in a test match, sends the losing team scrambling for cover as Bhuvan (Aamir Khan) and his team dance and celebrate. At the same time, Bhuvan's mother turns to face the sky and beams with pride at the sight of the incredible victory against the British Raj and the long-awaited liberation.let us know about your favourite rain scenes by tagging us @liveaastey
