Most recently I watched Marathi film - Sairat with English subtitles. I watched it because of the good reviews and record breaking collections. But its unexpected climax is heartbreaking, and definitely going to stay in my mind for a short period. The muted climax scene is definitely one of the finest scenes ever shot in Indian cinema. Actually I thought, there was some problem with my you tube video. Climax scenes of Anand, Hamal hassan starrer Moonam Pirai/Sadma and Malayalam movies - Thulabharam & Akash Doot are a few more. Can you give a few more, belonging to any language of your choice?
I would like to add Muquadar Ka Sikander, Deewar and Sholay too. In teens, death scene of Amitabh in Sholay left an impression on me. Same is the case of Muquadar Ka Sikander with an anti-climax. Dil Ek mandir, Sangham and Devdas (Dilip Kumar).
In the recent times, Baazigar, Kal Ho Na Ho, Fanaah, Gangster, Tere Naam, Kai Po Che, Rang De Basanti, Aashique 2, Jannat 1 and 2 etc. I was really touched with the ending of Jannat 2, I have not watched a movie with such an unhappy ending.
I forgot to add one of the best love stories ever made in Malayalam cinema. It's 'Ennu Ninte Moideen' - Yours Moideen released in 2015. The movie is a real love story of a Muslim boy and a Hindu girl, and they wait for long years till they grew old. He dies in a boat accident in his 40s in 1980s and Kanchana Mala is still living in Mukkam, now age 70+ unmarried.

|Yes Yes I remember Sagara Sangamam, dubbed to Malayalam and Tamil starring Kamal Hassan and Jaya Prada. It's climax scene is so unpleasant. I watched Shankarabharam (Tamil or Malayalam) as a child, I can't remember any scene of the movie, except the classic songs - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|kamal hassan received his first National award for this performance. Though the Hindi version was a flop when the movie got released, it got a cult status later - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|I too have seen Life is beautiful which was very touching. There was another film on the same theme of Holocaust named The boy in the striped Pajamas which also had a very touching climax - usha manohar - 4 years ago|
|There is one Malayalam film with same title released in 2000, which told the relationship between a married couple. But the movie was a flop. Have you watched Sairat? I really loved the heroine and her natural looks, entirely different from glamorous heroines of today. - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|Yes, I have heard about the movie, but not seen it so far. - Kalyani Nandurkar - 4 years ago|
|I have seen only some parts of Sairat, the girl is good but didn't like the movie so left it midway. The story, acting etc. must be good, but lately, the trend in Marathi film industry has been to project and glorify teenage love and I am afraid that is an unhealthy and negative trend so I don't watch or promote about such kind of movies. - Kalyani Nandurkar - 4 years ago|
|It's the story of honour killing, not just teenage love. Actually it exposes some reality such as girl belonging to a rich family repent over her act to elope with the boy, when she has to live in poor conditions. It's not shown in masala movies of today. Filmmakers have approached the script keeping these facts in mind - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|am yet to watch shor. I think Nanda was seen in the popular song - Ek Pyar Ka Nagma - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|actually I hate to watch movies with anti-climax. I several times thought to watch sarbjit online. But knowing it has a sad end,I hesitate always - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|Hachiko and Marley and Me are good films. Actually, if we think of it there are so many films that are touching and have beautiful but heartrendng scenes. It is really difficult to pick the best of them. - Kalyani Nandurkar - 4 years ago|
|Several adaptions of Shakespeare works have been done in Indian cinema. Kaliyattam (Malayalam) and Omkara are based on Othello. Performance of Suresh Gopi as a lead actor gave him National award for best actor. Its climax is really hurting (As we know about its climax earlier, predicted climax breaks the suspense). I am yet to watch Omkara. Haider (from Hamlet) had a different climax. I would like to add one movie to the list - Muquadar Ka Sikander. For me, it's the finest of Amitabh's performance as an actor in 1970s - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|Ishaqzaade and Ramleela were inspired from Romeo & Juliet. I didn't like Ram Leela, but the desi version of Ishaqzaade is a must-watch with a heart touching climax - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|I have not seen any of the films you have mentioned, however will look out for them. I know that some excellent films are made in Malayalam, have seen a few as well - usha manohar - 4 years ago|

|Now tragic stories are less made in Malayalam. Most have happy ending like Bollywood films. If you want to watch a good film without masala entertainment, I suggest you - 'Ennu Ninte Moideen' - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
|@Usha, I know you love watching old classics so I will suggest you watch the "Waterloo Bridge" one of the best Viven Leigh's early movies. She is a ballet dancer in love with a soldier who goes off to the World War and her tragic end. It has beautiful music and the last scene on the Waterloo Bridge where she ends her life is too touching. A beautiful movie, worth watching. - Kalyani Nandurkar - 4 years ago|
