Crying in Movies

So, I’m an emotional person and I get attached and sad and emotional in the split of a second.

It doesn’t take me long to cry in general, so crying when I see someone else cry is easy but when I see someone else crying and there’s a sad background music playing? A minute and there’s tears flowing down my face to my neck and onto my lap. And trust me you guys, some Bollywood background music is brutal.

Anyway, for a long time, I used to be so embarrassed of the fact that I cried in almost all movies and I would do all kinds of weird stuff to hold it in- especially in theatres. But I’ve lately come to realise that there’s absolutely nothing wrong in crying in movies.

I think it’s so freaking beautiful and magical how a film can make you feel so much – to the point that you’re hiccuping and sobbing. That someone else’s story can touch you so much and get you so involved.

So, I’ve stopped trying to hide it, doesn’t mean I don’t get funny looks , sometimes stupid even but their loss, there’s something relieving and freeing. I know it’s the crying which makes you feel that in general but I enjoy being so involved in the story that I don’t even realise how much into it I am.

This post has come after spending an hour of a three hour movie by Karan Johar (honestly if y’all are into Bollywood, his movies are gonna break you) crying .

Am I crazy? Do you cry in movies too? What do you think?

  1. I definitely tear up at movies in the theater, and I’m not ashamed of it. I can’t remember the last time I fully cried during a movie. Most recently, I know I teared up during Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Christopher Robin, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

  2. Personally I do not cry at movies unless I am extra hormonal or the situation hits too close to home – that said, I think there is nothing wrong with some healthy emotional reaction to someone’s art 🙂
