Happy Endings!?! :)

Most people who watch movies regularly (like me) – especially hindi movies – hate the fact that these directors cannot get beyond happy endings. There have been so many movies where i cringe at the end because of the predictable endings. but, and i don’t know what i was watching yesterday which makes me say that we would be really depressed without these silly little happy endings!!

Imagine in DDLJ Raj and Simran do not end up together. (oops!! sorry!! i’ve been told that i shouldn’t even be thinking such horribly frightening things. ) Or in Jab We Met, Geet and Adithya ; or in the Harry Potter series Voldemort kills Harry; or in 10 Things I Hate About You, or in 27 Dresses or- well, you get the picture.!! Don’t you cry every time you watch A Walk To Remember and wish that just this once she wouldn’t die. I still feel terrible when i think about the movie Saawariya(which, contrary to popular belief IS a good movie) and I wish she would have ended up with Ranbir Kapoor‘s character. I know that such movies; are the good ones and they are not stereotypical and they really make you think, but every once in a while even deep-thinkers like me, need a break and need toΒ believeΒ in these fairy tale endings. Don’t you wish that Jai hadn’t died in Sholay and had miraculously recovered, like he does in every other movie of his? We need these happy endingd in our lives because somehow, somewhere deep down, they give us hope. (well, at least they give me hope!) Even though our brains tell us that such endings should not be happening; that they are impractical and idealistic. But our hearts – our poor little romance-driven hearts accept it, because we want to believe that someday, something magical like that will happen to us!! (again, this is what i usually end up believing. I don’t know about you.)

  1. Thats the whole point of movies,i’m sure when we walk out of a theater,we wouldn’t want to talk about ”sigh,i wish they ended up together”. Even though it would be really nice to watch movies that do not have happy endings, in the end a happy ending is what we want! πŸ˜€ and i’m sure even though most of us admit it or not,for a moment at least we picture our-selfs in their place ( well at least i do ). On the whole,lovely article Rashmi. πŸ™‚

    Ps- I loved the line where you mentioned that saawariya IS a good movie! πŸ˜€

  2. ‘ghor paap?’ bwahahaha! that sounds so familiar! πŸ˜€ wait,?Sujatha the forever DDLJ diwaanee right? πŸ™‚
