The monsoons are here and we couldn’t wish for anything more than a hot cup of tea, delicious snacks, some hugs and a perfect Netflix movie or series to watch and enjoy the beauty of the rains from our homes. Here are some monsoon moments that will amplify the rains this season for you.
INCORRECT: SEASON 1
I don’t think you can think of a cuter modern couple than Mismatched’s Rishi (Rohit Saraf) and Dimple (Prajakta Kohli), now combine it with this beautiful weather and you have one of the most adorable moments on screen. The way Rishi and Dimple take shelter from the rain and share a super romantic yet super geeky moment talking about app design is sure to make your heart melt.

The most iconic scene in the most romantic movie just has to be a beautiful and impressive kiss in the rain scene. Even after all these years, we haven’t gotten over (and won’t) the beautiful chemistry Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams shared. Noah and Allie reunite after being away for years and realize that the love they once had is still there, despite everything that went wrong. The energy and chemistry on the scene are electric, leaving everyone in awe even today after so many years. Notebook is available on Netflix.
I’m sure many of you will agree that rain has a different emotion for all those in long distance relationships. Aditya (Shahid Kapoor) from Jab We Met proves it. We see Aditya, a top-tier corporate person who thinks about Geet (Kareena Kapoor) all day long. Just when it starts to rain he can’t take it anymore, the rain brings back memories of Geet, takes him back to the times when he was in her presence and when he thinks of her it brings out the happiest version of him. Also, available on Netflix.
GET UP SID
Rains can provoke many different emotions, and if there is one film that has captured this ocean of emotions, it is Wake Up Sid. The film has not only encapsulated the true essence of rain, but also presented it in the most beautifull. When we see Sid (Ranbir) sitting and looking out the window at the rain, it brings us all to the moment when we had everything working in our life, but the absence of that person leaves you with a heavy heart. The light drizzle then changes to a heavy rain, this is when you realize that you already have the love you want and need, you just need to show up. This is then rendered in a shot that beautifully captures glimpses of Mumbai.
KAL HO NA HO
Available on Netflix, unrequited love has a beauty of its own and this movie is sure to have you feeling all the emotions on the spectrum. Naina (Preity Zinta) confessing her love to Aman (Shah Rukh Khan) and Aman telling her a story to save her from a new heartbreak is a scene that is sure to make you cry. Naina, running towards the Brooklyn Bridge and crying with all her heart, while Aman hides her feelings. This is a moment that has broken a million hearts but made them believe in the power of love.
