The interval scene in any Bollywood movie is the most crucial part. The first half sets the premise, and then you have a critical moment in the middle, which goes on to change the trajectory of the film in the second half. A good interval scene in any Bollywood movie will leave you wanting to watch what the next part has in store for you.

Remember the interval scene in Kahaani where Bob Biswas pushes Vidya down a metro track just before the interval? Well, that’s exactly how gripping these scenes are. We found a Reddit thread on the Bollywood subreddit where a user asked people to share their favourite interval scenes from Hindi movies. The answers will make you want to watch these films again.

Goosebumps material!” – Jordan_Terell_Carter
