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.
