This list would have been incomplete had we not mentioned this movie. The climax of this movie holds a special place in our hearts. When Jai  went to the airport to stop the love of his life, Aditi from going to America, we were at the edge of our seats waiting for things to unfold. As the police try to chase him and Jai finally manages to catch a glimpse of Aditi, he breaks out in his rendition of the classic evergreen song - Jaane Tu.. Ya Jaane Na. Aditi, realising its Jai, singing the music, and declaring his love for her, runs up to him and happily embraces each other. 


This gem of a movie released in 2008 and this particular scene is eternally engraved in our minds. The soul of every Emran Hashmi movies is the songs. This scene has all the elements of a Bollywood movie - the hero singing a romantic song, the girl blushing and trying not to acknowledge his attempts to portray his love for her, and finally, the big gesture by the guy that gets her attention. When Emran overtakes the car, stops midway, and gets down on one knee and proposes to Soya, played by Sonal, we are almost filled with tears of joy!
