The Perfect Romance
A 1000 weeks and the romance ever effervescent! King Khan and now lady Devgan’s romantic saga, is by far the longest running film in the HISTORY of bollywood!
Here’s why Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge is unarguably the best love story created by Bollywood!
1. The Boy Next Door: Raj
Good girls love bad boys! No one has been able to figure this one out yet! But DDLJ’s Raj, Shah Rukh Khan’s character, had all the essential ingredients girls love! Rich brat, yet good at heart, “awaara”, crazy and fun loving! In fact his character was named after Raj Kapoor; and he was portrayed as a ladies’ man! When lo and behold, he falls head over heels in love with Simran.
2. The Desi Parivaar
Simran’s over possessive and protective dad; and her ever adjusting and sacrificing mum; form the perfect cocktail of the typical Indian family!
Plus, we all love the masala that comes with love marriages! The guy does everything to convince the girl’s ever strict and disciplined father, whereas the girl’s mom easily agrees. She wants her daughter to live freely, without making sacrifices.
And finally what we just love to watch, is the guy winning the girl from her dad!
3. The logics of “love”
When we’re in love, our heart speaks louder than our minds! Of course logic goes down the drain. DDLJ has captured these emotions and gorgeously portrayed them on screen! These scenes are so realistic and simple, it makes our heart beat again!
The song, “ho gaya hai tujhko toh pyaar”, adds charm to the feeling of realisation that you’re in love!
Believe it or not, this tradition is by far the most popular traditions in India! The entire feeling of a devoted wife fasting (for an entire day!) for her husband, completely in love, just embraces the ‘crazy about love’ fans.
5. Stirring all the emotions at one time!!
DDLJ, pierces straight through your heart; it has all the essential ingredients that are a must in a blockbuster!
This movie has been running at the maratha mandir theatre ever since it’s release for more than a 1000 weeks now!
