Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is one of my all time favourite movies. I remember this was the first hindi movie I saw in the theatre. I was 8, n I went to watch this with all my cousins. It was the Sagar theatre in Majestic. I wouldnt step my foot in that area now though. This movie is superb. Its the ultimate love story. I would love to have such a love story. Its simple n classic. Shahrukh Khan..!! What do I say about him. I've been crazy of him from when I was 4. From the time I saw Baazigar. Its been almost 19 years since then, yet I'm loyal to him. I love his movies. My favourites have varied time n again, Hrithik, John, Rahul Bose, Fardeen.... n so on. But ShahRukh will always be my ultimate favourite.
This movie perfectly defines the saying "Believe in your dreams" and "Believe in Love". This movie has a perfect combination of friendship, love n respect for parents. It can also pass of as a family movie. N the songs are simply amazing. Shahrukh n Kajol... Cant wait to see you guys together again. Try recreating the magic of this one. I couldnt believe that this movie was actually supposed to be made in English with Tom Cruise as the lead..!! It was supposed to be a story of an Englishman falling in love with an Indian n then trying to woo her parents. Thank God it dint turn out to be that.
Many love stories have been made after that. Some good ones were Veer Zaara, Vivaah, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai n some more. Even Rab ne bana di jodi was'nt that bad. But none could create the magic of this one. I have seen it close to a 60 times n can watch it again. Today when they were playing it on Set Max I stopped all my chores n sat to watch it. The climax of the movie is so damn cute. I just hope that scene was shot in one take though. Else.. Poor Kajol is all I can say. Long live Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
