I know it’s very cliché but we all wet our eyes with happy tears when the hero reunites with the heroine. They exchange sweet words while we just melt with romance. The guy kissing the girl and expressing his wish to stay with her forever has become the ending of all romantic films nowadays. Either that they drown in sorrow and make us all empathetic to them. Anyways, a good ending holds the film in good stead for huge success but if the ending doesn’t pitch well, the makers might as well try different careers.
It gets all so emotional if the hero and heroine run towards each other in slow motion as their emotions are perfectly captured by the audience. We want to be in their place and feel that happiness of finally being with your significant other, of finally knowing that there can be no one between you and her. These endings require the magic touch and great finesse to resonate with the audience. That’s why very few movies actually manage this feat. Here is the list of romantic movies where the guy ultimately gets the girl.
