10 Legendary Train Sequences Of Bollywood

10-legendary-train-sequencesBollywood movies are shot all around the world and involve deadly stunts, sometimes including trains and other locomotives. While some of the train sequences involve nerve wrecking action scenes, others are melodramatic with a touch of Bollywood masala. Take a look at 10 such legendary train sequences shown in Bollywood movies:Dilwale-Dulhania-Le-JayengeDilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge: Undoubtedly the most legendary train scene is the climax of ‘DDLJ’ which sees Shah Rukh Khan inside the train and Kajol running towards him to catch the train. Audiences were left heartbroken and teary eyed seeing the intense drama, but logic hit everyone later who realized that Kajol missed another door behind her and kept running towards SRK!Jab-We-MetJab We Met: Well this movie surely put Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shahid Kapoor on the Bollywood map. Both the actors gave amazing performances, and Kareena was seen essaying the role of a girl who loves travelling in train. In fact there were many scenes where train was involved in ‘Jab We Met‘. So much so that Kareena’s dialogue where she says she had a bad dream about missing her train became a hit.WantedWanted: Salman Khan’s action comedy flick Wanted is still wanted by many as the film is surely evergreen. One of such action scenes involved was where Ayesha Takia was rescued by Salman inside a moving train. When some rowdy goons tried to harass Ayesha, Salman Khan came to her rescue by beating up all the bad guys. It was definitely a well choreographed action sequence.Gadar-Ek-Prem-KathaGadar-Ek Prem Katha: Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s heartwarming performance in ‘Gadar’ is still worth remembrance. The film is said to be one of the biggest blockbusters of Indian cinema, and was based on the era of partition and the riots that took place during the same. The train sequence where Sunny Deol rescues Ameesha Patel from being assaulted was something that left us awestruck.Rang-De-BasantiRang De Basanti: Rang De Basanti is definitely another one of evergreen movies of Bollywood that was cool for the new generation, but at the same us valued Indian tradition. The film showed the making of a history based short film, where one of the sequences saw how Bhagat Singh and his fellow friends rob the train carrying currency. The black and white aura of the scene was refreshing to watch.DilseDilse: Now who doesn’t remember Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora Khan’s amazing dance in ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ from ‘Dilse’? The song that was shot on top of moving train was from the Nilgiri mountain railway situated in Ooty. The railway line was initially built by the British in 1908 and was operated by Madras Railway. In terms of songs shot using trains, this one is unmatched!Dhoom-2-2Dhoom 2: The film series ‘Dhoom’ saw Hrithik Roshan as the villain in ‘Dhoom 2′. Apart from his Greek God like looks and his pairing with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan’s action sequences in the film were also quite commendable. One of such sequences involved the actor standing on top of a moving train amidst desert, where we saw him performing some deadly stunts.Chennai-ExpressChennai Express: Rohit Shetty’s film ‘Chennai Express’ had a scene which reprised the famous ‘DDLJ’ train sequence, giving a tribute to the legendary scene. Only this time instead of Kajol we saw Deepika Padukone running behind the train and being pulled inside by Shah Rukh Khan. While it was obviously not as classic as ‘DDLJ’, we loved the way SRK acted in this one like a pro! SRK and Deepika’s chemistry in the film was also charming to the core.IshaqzaadeIshaqzaade: Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor’s debut movie ‘Ishaqzaade’ left a mark in Bollywood successfully launching their careers. Their sizzling hot chemistry in the movie totally clicked with the audience who were left wanting for more. One of such hot sequences involved newlyweds Parineeti and Arjun spending their first night (which in the film was morning) inside an empty train rake. Their performance was surely unforgettable!Thae-Burning-Train-1The Burning Train: 1980 film ‘The Burning Train’ was a star studded affair with actors Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Jeetendra, Neetu Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Vinod Mehra and others. Entire half of the film was partially shot inside the train as the plot demanded the same. The film was about a train named Super Express that catches fire during its day one on the rail. The action thriller film was an instant hit among the audience.
