And Action!!!

Itchy tagged me a while ago to do a post on favourite scenes. Here are a few of my fav ones:

Andaaz Apna Apna
So many fav scenes here. The slow motion fight sequence at the end. Or the one where Aamir and Salman say "hands up" coz they have guns - and the rest follow them with their hands up.

Golmaal (old one)
Amol Palekar's mouch coming off - as he feeds on aloo parathas and Utpla Dutt saying in his trademark style "Khaao khaao - ab tumhe dande bhi khaane hain".

"Tumhara naam kya hai, basanti" Unforgettable!!!

The building kids teasing Anjali, tormenting her rather - and her bro and sis standing up for her. Really cried during this one.

Mr. India
The kids are hungry coz there is no food in the house. Sridevi brings them cakes, samosas, the hungry look in the eyes of the kids - but the self-respect which stops them from taking the food. Then Sri calls out to the youngest of the kids Tina - who looks at Anil Kapoor for approval. Woah - real tear jerker this one!

My Best Friends Wedding
The 2 best friends - Micheal and Julianna (Dermot Mulroney & Julia Roberts) take off a day before the wedding - take a cruise - and their song plays on the boat - and they dance in the afternoon sunlight.

Satte pe Satta
After Hema Malini takes a lot of effort to clean the house and cook a meal - she lays it out and calls the brothers. they all rush out - then wait for Amitabh to take his food. After he has served himself - they just break loose on the dinner table. Or the one where she throws away all the clothes for washing while the brothers sleep - and they have to come out of the room using props to cover themselves.

After their first fight - Rani Mukherjee makes a big cross on the calendar to remember the day they had a fight. Every time hubby and I fight - I remember this scene.

Dil to Pagal hai
Right at the end Akshay Kumar (who loves Madhuri Dixit) points to Madhuri and SRK and then indicates by getures that the 2 of them are meant for each other, then he points to himself and Mads and makes a fluttery kind of motion - we're just kind of ok. Even thinking gets me a lump in the throat.

Khamoshi - The Musical
The one with Salman Khan - when his parents come to visit Manisha Koirala's parents - both of whom are deaf and dumb - that dinner scene is sooo poignant.

Andaaz Apna Apna - One of my favorite screwball comedies. My favorite scene is when Salman is given horse laxatives and makes repeated trips to the facilities.

With movies like AAA - its so difficult to choose one scene..the whole movie is sooo good.
