Scroll down just a smidge for a very funny list of things about which Bollywood gave this very funny writer unrealistic expectations. Hollywood romantic comedies were dangerous enough (John Cusack has never showed up either, and he even spends time in Illinois)...I can only imagine how growing up with movie rainstorms, trains, and dances could make real life even more disappointing.*
* I'm sort of kidding and sort of not. I do think you need to have your grown-up wits about you in order to shuffle some of these filmi things back into the way your own world actually works. Tempting as mysterious strangers or evening monsoon walks or pouring your heart out as the train pulls slowly out of the station might be, such things don't usually pan out as well or as simply as in the movies. But it's equally important to not be so jaded that you never even engage with strangers or walks or trains. If push comes to shove, I'd recommend open-hearted. (Unless he's been stalking you, which is creepy and illegal, not romantic.)
After all, all of those people I link to were mysterious strangers at one point or another, and now look at what great friends we've become. Ah, Bollywood - bringing people together.
