15 Emotional Hindi Movies That gonna make your eyes Wet

Movies have a unique way of connecting with us emotionally, often more quickly and intensely than books. Whether it’s a heartfelt reaction to a story on paper or the powerful impact of visuals on screen, films can evoke strong emotions. Many writers have explored the relationship between the visual medium and catharsis, explaining why films are used to convey social messages or why emotional ads are effective.

One major factor is the compelling nature of good storytelling. In a well-crafted movie with impressive performances, we find ourselves relating to the characters, experiencing a release of emotions as the story unfolds. Personally, I actively seek out movies that can move me to tears, whether they are purely emotional or provoke deep feelings by addressing challenging questions. Here are 15 of my favourite Bollywood films, both old and recent, that I turn to when I need a good cry.
