“Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Rahul, Tum Nahi Samjhoge….” Anjali draped in a chiffon saree angrily utters these words to a suit clad Rahul and storms off. Rahul turns and follows Anjali with his gaze, a wistful helpless look on his face as he replies to her retreating figure, “Kuch kuch hota hai Anjali, tum nahi samjhogi…”
This scene is enough to make buckets of tears roll down my eyes. I must have watched this movie almost a 100 times, not exaggerating. And it still rivets me every time. In my 30s as I think about the story line, all I can see are the loopholes and the absurdity, not the mention the regressive tone of the plot. But I don’t know what it is that still makes this love triangle a “happy place” for me.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai gave us the trend of branded clothes, “c-o-o-l” lockets, “Pyaar dosti hai”, friendship bands, dancing in the rain, “Mard ka sir sirf 3 aurton ke saamne jhukta hai” and hip college goals.
Let us look at some of the scenes, that makes this movie a cult favorite.
- Even though I hate this scene because it makes me want to punch Rahul hard, I have to agree that this is one of the most beautifully portrayed confusion in relationships ever.
2) This moment just warms the cockles of my heart. A simple action of looking at the falling star together is too delicious for words.
3) Ufffffff… This man makes rains so sexy. Nothing more to say but just drool over him.
This scene is a beauty. Two old friends catching up, complete with awkwardness, familiarity, deep love for each other and yet totally unsure about their standing in the other person’s life.
This line was used by quite a few romeos to propose to their loves.
Just for that gorgeous dimple.
And because I could not resist, this moment again.
