Sometimes, expressions are enough to convey emotions words cannot. We’ve seen many such scenes in movies where actors had the audience reduced to tears without speaking anything. A simple look at their faces touched us to the core, and we could empathise with all that their characters felt.

A film critic with the Twitter handle CineHub (@Its_CineHub) has posted a thread of such moments of ‘peak’ acting without dialogues from Hindi movies. It’s now viral. Take a look:

1. When Mohan Bhargava takes a sip of water from the earthen pot in the train and accepts his homeland in Swades

2. Ved & Tara’s break-up in Tamasha

3. Right after Ishaan’s parents drop him at his boarding school in Taare Zameen Par

‘Main kabhi dikhlata nahi, par andhere se darta hun main Ma’

4. Barfi’s breakup with Shruti in Barfi

5. Coach Kabir’s reaction after Indian wins the Hockey World Cup in Chak De! India

6. When Raju gets the job in 3 Idiots

7. When Pawan realises the travel agent was planning to sell Munni to a brothel all along in Bajrangi Bhaijaan

8. Dejected Naina biting her hand in Hichki

9. Sardar Khan in the last scene of Gangs Of Wasseypur 1

10. Radhe in the last scene of Tere Naam

Naturally, Twitter users also began talking about scenes that got to them the most. The list includes compelling moments of Hrithik Roshan in ZNMD & Guzaarish, Rani Mukerji in Black, Vicky Kaushal in Masaan, and SRK in Devdas

This list can be truly endless. Remember, when Veer and Zara first met in the courtroom after over two decades. Or, the entire funeral sequence of Flight Lt. Ajay Rathod in Rang De Basanti. Or, when Rohan runs to freedom towards the end of Udaan. Or literally the last scene of Rockstar.

The thread is precious. You can find the link here.
