Valentine’s Day Special: 10 films where guys showed what true love actually is
February is the month of love and we are going to celebrate it in our own special way. In Bollywood copious times you must have come across a hero who wins over his love interest by stalking her, showing off his tapori style or by even annoying her till she admits love for him! Surprisingly or sadly the heroines fall for such stupid tricks most of the time.
It is sad that the youngsters feel that in order to patao a girl all they need to do is whistle at her, stalk her or embarrass her in front of everyone by claiming his right over her the way our hero does in Hindi films. But very rarely you come across a film where the hero handles his attraction towards the girl in a very mature and gentlemanly way.
Because it’s not necessary to act upon your desires every time and the ability to do is what makes you human in the truest sense. On the occasion of Valentine’s Day here we bring you 12 films where the hero proved that in order to show your love it’s not necessary that you should shout from a roof top or do all the antics. You can simply do that by respecting the person you have fallen in love with and by simply being a true blue gentleman.
Have a look:
In this film Rustom Pavri (Akshay Kumar) gives his wife Cynthia (Ileana D’Cruz) a second chance despite knowing that she cheated on him. Well we are not saying that one should overlook such grave mistake but the maturity with which Rustom understands the circumstance in which Vikram (Arjan) created a situation where Cynthia was tricked into falling for him. Rustom’s maturity defines the kind of man he is and also how much he believed in love (wife).
So friends always remember one thing love doesn’t necessarily mean to have the person you love reciprocate your feelings, instead love means to set them free and if they are really destined to be with you then no matter what they will come back.
HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM
Nandini (Aishwarya Rai) though is married to Vanraj (Ajay Devgn) her heart belongs to Sameer (Salman Khan). Vanraj realizes that and begins on a journey to reunite his wife with her true love. Vanraj again shows what maturity is, he never forces his wife to perform her duties but instead understands her turmoil and decides to help her.
NA TUM JAANO NA HUM
In this romantic drama Rahul (Hrithik Roshan) even after knowing that the love of his life is Esha (Esha Deol) but he doesn’t pursue her because he knows that his best friend Akshay (Saif Ali Khan) has fallen madly in love with Esha. He sacrifices his love for his best friend.
KAHO NA PYAAR HAI
Rohit (Hrithik Roshan) hails from a humble background but he never lusts money or material happiness. He falls for Sonia (Ameesha Patel) who is extremely rich not because of her status but for the person that she is. Even when they had a chance of eloping Rohit refuses to do so because for him that would mean demeaning the purity of his love for Sonia. Rohit is our definition of a perfect gentleman.
DIL CHAHTA HAI
Siddharth (Akshaye Khanna) falls for Tara (Dimple Kapadia) who is of his mother’s age! But Sid never tried to impose his love on Tara neither did he even once ask her to reciprocate his feelings. He knows that the society would never accept his love and therefore he suppresses his feelings thereby not making situation embarrassing for everyone.
Aamir Khan though played an alien in this film but he showed us what true love is. PK falls for Jaggu (Anushka Sharma) but he knows that he cannot have her because she loves someone else. As it’s said that love has only one rule i.e. make happy the person you love and PK does exactly that.
Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) tries to save Seema (Juhi Chawla) from his boss (Aditya Pancholi) in every possible way because he knows that his boss’ intentions are not right. Despite posing as a husband and wife, Rahul never tries to take advantage of Seema. He expresses his love for her by protecting her every time. And eventually Seema sees the purity of his heart and falls for him.
Casanova Karan (Saif Ali Khan) falls for Rhea (Rani Mukerji) who is a sensitive and no-nonsense girl but he never admits it thinking that how can a girl like Rhea deserve a man like him? Wasn’t that the sweetest of him that she never wanted to ruin the sanctity of their friendship by confessing his love for her? Otherwise which hero does that?
TANU WEDS MANU
Manu Sharma (R Madhavan) was in love with Tanu (Kangana Ranaut) but still helps her in being with her lover Raja Awasthi (Jimmy Shergill). In fact he even convinces Tanu’s parents that they should let her marry Raja. Manu being gentlemen that he is never tries to mislead Tanu’s family in fact he only helps her in her endeavor to elope with Raja.
Simpleton Bajrangi (Salman Khan) though likes Rasika (Kareena Kapoor) but he never abuses the trust Rasika and her family had in him. Bajrangi showed us how being honest is enough to make someone fall in love with you.
Rana (Irrfan Khan) sticks to Piku’s family during the road trip even after being totally annoyed by her father. Rana loves Piku and expresses his love by doing things which he would otherwise have never done. Rana also doesn’t enforce his love on Piku in fact he gives her enough space to think if she would really like to spend her life with him or not.
Sameer (Sohum Shah) despite knowing that Simran a.k.a Praful is addicted to gambling and stealing helps her financially so that she is able to pay off her debts. Praful had called off their relationship but still he helps her because his love for Praful was true. Sameer was willing to do anything to help her and even urges her to surrender.
