Top 5 cute romantic tamil movies scenes I like

Actually I am not a big fan of romance being the core subject of a movie. I feel a cinema field is healthy only when it deals with a variety of subjects. I like the way how bollywood is producing movies recently. One of the recent bollywood movie that I liked was "The Wednesday". It was a nice movie with a nice and different plot. If you have not seen it, I would strongly recommend this movie. In tamil I think of all the new age directors I think Vetrimaran and Venkat Prabhu's movies are promising when it comes with dealing non love based story lines. But Gils' post provoked me to come up with a list of romantic scenes that I like in tamil movies. So here goes my list...

1. I don't think anything can beat the Karthik and Revathi segment in Mouna Raagam. Personally I love the scene where Karthik parks his bike before the bus and compels Revathi to say that she was looking out for him. The following video has all my favourite scenes in this movie.


2. Second one that comes to my mind is Ithayathai Thirudathe. The scenes are pretty much in the same style as mouna ragam but it still makes us enjoy each encounter between Nagarjuna and Geethanjali. The main reason being double damaka, in this movie both hero and heroine are shown as fun loving people. Check out the video below for my favourite scene in this movie.


3. I love every scene in Alaipayuthe but this is one of my most favourite scene. After a long break Mani Rathnam gave us a film in this genre. Another scene other than this one I love the most is, when Madhavan calls up Shalini at work. I tried hard for the video, this is the only one I could find. Sorry about the bad quality.


4. This again is from Mani Rathnam, I wonder how he thinks these kind of scenes. Trully brilliant ones. I like the way he handled this movies subject and the characterizations. After I saw this movie, I always wanted a wife like the one Simran portrays in this movie,independant, fun loving yet a strict mom.


5. Well finally I have a scene in my top 5 favourite which is not directed by Mani Rathnam. This scene is from Sillunu oru kadhal. This scene is a typical Mani Rathnam sequence, I am pretty sure the director of this movie was inspired by Mani Rathnam when he conceived this scene. This is one movie I liked but came to know that many did not like it. I felt it was a pretty decent movie, just that people could not digest the story line.


There are a few scenes which came close but missed my top 5 list.
1. Alaypayuthe climax scene, the scene where Shalini says I love you to Madhavan. Check here.
2. Another Mani Rathnam movie, in which we might not expect to have such a cute scene is Thalapathi. The scene where Rajini justifies cutting a police man's hand to Shobana. Second scene (Pidichuruku) in this video.
3. Gajini romance sequence between Surya and Asin. If the scenes were a little more fast paced, I guess this would have made in my Top 5 list. Click here for the video.
4. The romance sequence in the song Kangal irandal in Subramaniampuram. Click here for the video.

You might wonder why I have listed only scenes from Mani Rathnam's movies, but these are the most memorable scenes that have got stuck in my head. May be because I am a huge fan of him. One commonality between all these scenes is they all make you smile when you watch them, irrespective of the number of times you watch it.

Go ahead fill my comments with your favourites scenes.

Varta...

    hahaa..- donno why im laughin but maybe it's bcos i haven come across a breezy post in a long time
    so yea..cool post :))
    n are ye kiddin? I love SOK! the story is so tight even though screenplay was all over the place
    ..i like Ghajini too.It's so difficult to capture romance and there's a very thin line separating it from over-dramatization n only a handful manage to walk it
    i also like old Tamil movies..like Gemini Ganesan ones- the romance there is also very subtle n coupled with humour

    Hi Kay,

    I can say that we have got similar taste. Mauna Raagam is one of my all time favourite. I love the whole movie, esp the scenes where karthik comes. Mani is ofcourse my favourite Director as well. I have not seen Idayathai thirudathey movie but have seen some of the scenes. I did smile seeing all of the scenes :). All the five of your top scenes are my favourite as well, but may be the order would differe and there could other scenes as well.

    Roja - The scene where madhubala says sorry to arvind samy and asking him to take her to kashmir along with him. I like that scene and the background music is really great!

    Kanda Naal Mudal - Where Prasanna comes back from the hospital after being yelled at, his father and sister asking him to go back, and he later goes back - that scene along with the background music is super!

    Mozhi - The scene where prakash raj asks Jyotika "what is music according to her" - nice scene!

    These are few I could think of immediately!

    //very thin line separating it from over-dramatization//
    I agree to this...
    I like Gemini's movies too... he is a very casual actor giving just the right emotions needed for a scene... But I can't remember anything now...
    I saw Jab we Met... but nothing like Mani sir :D

    @BSK - //appo kandippa naan andha padam odra theatre pakkam kooda poga maaten. :)//

    @Neo - Hey Neo! Gimme a five buddy! I think you should watch Ithayathai Thirudathey... I too saw it a couple of years back... I liked the way he delt the subject... Inspite of a negative thing... he kept the movie in a positive note...

    @Anonymous - I agree that Roja had some very cute scenes... the scene you have mentioned is a nice scene... I like the scene where Arvind swamy comes from bath and splashes water on madhu bala... thats a very nice scene...
    Kanda naal mudhal is a nice movie as a whole... I just love mozhi....
    wow! that was nice list of movies...Thanks! I realized I missed Roja when I listed...

    KK,
    I did not know that you started your posts again. Kalayanam appuram oru heavy hibernation pola ? :)

    The mentioned movies are no doubt the best of the lot that anyone could think. Karthik Revathi mouna raagam is an art by itself. Backed by Illayaraja's megamillion magnetic sound waves, no movie can stand close to that. Particularly the scene were Chandramouli happens, revathi would spill the water on karthik and they laugh after some pause. Such a gr8 scene it is.

    Other movies that can also stand are :
    1. Minnalaes that power cut scene from. Gr8 one from gowtham menon.

    2. recent paruthi veeran sequences were very good.

    3. who can forget Ek dujhe ke liye. What a performance from Kamal&Rathi. I think it is a legendary and a Taj Mahal stature movie.

    4. sequences from rettai vaal kuruvi were amazing. mohan, radhika and archana really made it look natural.

    5. BTW, the best romantic song ever made in tamil cinema according to me is Kaadhalin deepam ondru from thambikku endha ooru. What a masterpiece. Infact it is romance embedded in it in every frame. Thalaivar's looks over his shoulders is the trademark. His walking and every nuances I love in the song.

    6. Thalaivar's mullum malarum sequences with Shoba is also top class. Those days, there weren't many romantic shots but mullum malarum had lots of graceful scenes in it.

    I think, romace as we talk is not a easy scene to make. The so called physics sorry chemistry has to be working with the characters involved. The background should match. The music should pitch in at the right instance. So I always feel romance best explored as KK said would be none other than Mani and only Mani. I'm very sure that he knew this never explored plot and it obviously created wonders.

    Kittu mama

    also from Azhutha Ezhuthu...

    "just a coffee.. oru cup punitham kedathe coffee. wats the problem?!"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JwpFVNxzTw

    "yen coffee ku nan than kaasu kudupen. ok?"
    "no problem. yenthu kuda negale kudukalam."
    "yeh shameless!"

    Thats a interesting list and I like most of the romantic scense, esp the ones from Alaypayuthey and kannathil muthamittal :) great taste. Remember the thalapathi scene when shobana raises her hands and "bless" rajini, that was soo cool!
