A life of being right versus a living life - a short scene

Printer-friendly version

This final scene (around 20 min, subtitled in english), on website below, of indian movie Mohabbatein won best scene of year 2000. I think it illustrates in a simple dialogue between son-in-law and father-in-law, a life with pain/value versus a life without pain and changes.

In my humble opinion, I don't think the complete movie is worth watching, the best scenes being the ones between son-in-law and father-in-law. Plus, it is easy to understand this scene even if we didn't see the complete movie. Megha is the dead daughter. The beginning of this sequence is a little slow but climax will come. It is after 4 min that it is starting to unravel...... and around 10 min when the father talks to his students.

Indian movies have often this naïvely sentimental way of presenting things and often emphasize intensity of feelings by spectacular settings (nature is often present ---- thunder, lightning, strong wind, sunrays, etc.....).

For a relax way of learning ACT in life!
