Review: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge *Spoilers*


Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
Stars: Shahrukh Khan, Kajol
Released: 1995
Directed by: Aditya Chopra


This film is a classic, possibly the most famous film ever to come out of Indian cinema and is known all around the world. For the children of parents who have actually lived in Hindustan get a glimpse of what their parents lives were all about. The great thing about this movie, is that it is able to do that all while giving it a very modern take.

So we have Simran, the daughter of convenience store and dedicated Indian Chaudhary, or Babu-ji as she calls him and a strong but meek mother, Lajo. They're not very wealthy, but Simran and her younger sister Chutki have always felt a lot of love from them. Raj Malhotra is the goof-ball son of a very wealthy widower, Dharamvir Malhotra. He goes to college and fails - which his father is surprising proud of. Combine that along with Simran's sensual and heartfelt dance to Mere Khwabon Mein, and you already have a pretty good understanding of their characters.

About twenty minutes into the movie, Simran gets a marriage proposal from her father's best friend's son, Kuljeet. Simran isn't too crazy about this, but wants to make her father happy, so she agrees to the marriage. However, she wants to travel Europe before she goes to India to get married and reluctantly, her father agrees. Who would happen to be going on this trip along with her and her friends? Well none other than Raj Malhotra of course. The two share a very interesting meeting when they both rush to catch the train and Simran's clothes - including her bra - end up all over Raj. Raj, being a ladies man, immediately starts to put the movies on Simran, all of which she rejects.

As their trip through Europe runs its course, it is obvious that the two young people are getting closer and closer, but still want to try and hate each other. It's not until they're leaving each other when they are back in London that they realize they have feelings for each other. When Simran expresses these feelings to her parents, her father is outraged and promptly packs the family up to take them to India and get Simran's marriage on its way. When Raj comes looking for Simran and discovers that she's gone to India to get shaadied off, he of course rushes after her.

Simran is going through with the wedding and her father's wishes, but is not at all happy about it. She doesn't see how she could ever be happy when she's in love with Raj and can't be with him. That is, until she hears a mandolin playing a soft, familiar tune... It is none other than Raj, whom she runs to through a thick field of yellow flowers. He assures her that he has a plan on how to get them to be together, and tells her to trust him.

I'm going to stop here - that's right, you don't get to know how it ends unless you watch it, which I advise you to do... NOW! I don't think you're a true Bollywood fan until you've seen this movie. SRKajol is Bollywood's Kate and Leo x 10000 and this movie made it for them both. This movie is responsible for all the cliches we see in Bollywood movies. This movie has inspired so many other movies. This movie has been referenced several times in other movies throughout the years and is, from what I've seen, the most popular Indian movie ever.

The acting is top notch. Both SRK and Kajol won Filmfare awards for their roles and it was very much well deserved. Their chemistry is perfect and their comedic timing is priceless. Scenes that would normally make you roll your eyes (running through a field of flowers to each other) is sweet and romantic in this movie and a lot of that is thanks to the amazing acting powers of SRKajol.

The songs are also amazing. My two favorites are, of course, Mere Khwabon Mein and Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna. This is a movie not to be missed by anyone. I mean it. If you haven't already stopped reading this review to go watch it - do it. Now!!!

Rating: 10/10

Love DDLJ. I love you

Actually, I wasn't as enamoured with it when I first saw it. My first SRK-Kajol film was KKHH. That was the film with which I completely fell for Shah Rukh, to the point of no return. Before KKHH, it was MHN where I just really liked him a lot. Then I saw Devdas and it didn't really do anything for me (though I do like the film now). Then OSO, which I didn't like at all. And then KKHH. I liked the film though it seemed to drag a little at the end. And I vaguely remember that the beginning might have slightly irritated me. But it didn't matter in the end, I love all of it now. The next day I re-watched it, especially the scene where Rahul asks Tina to sing a song and after that I was a goner both for SRK and the movie. Smile Loved KKHH with all my heart ever since.

Then I read some reviews about DDLJ, that all claimed it to be this masterpiece even better than KKHH. So I started to watch it. And although I had this stupid smile plastered all over my face while watching it, I still thought "Well, it's a nice film but it looks kinda dated... And I liked the first half more than the second. KKHH is better!"

But I re-watched DDLJ a couple of times and it really grew on me. It has great repeat value. It really is a flawless classic... What I like about it is its apparent simplicity... It's the case of "all genius things are simple." It's nice that the storyline is not in the least overwrought and that the film concentrates on the relationship of these two people and their feelings.

Made some fanvids (don't usually upload them to youtube as it's really hard to choose the music that wouldn't get banned immediately).



or here (the HD button should be green for the best quality)

DDLJ Romeo and Juliette

And others

DDLJ Come What May
DDLJ Beauty and the Beast (err... don't mind the lyrics! Laughing I know they don't exactly fit but I just had to use that song)
DDLJ Far Away

PS I have got a lot of great pics for DDLJ. Can I post them here or is this thread primarily for reviews?

I´m one of those sinners who didn´t really like KKHH (still think it´s terribly average) Very Happy And frankly I was greatly underwhelmed by DDLJ when I saw it the first time, because people talked about it as something incredibly fantastic. I was like "was that it?".

BUT slowly by slowly the film grew on me, though it took time. I think it has great repeat value and is always entertaining. Just those sky-high expectations don´t work, but then again they never work with any film.

So while KKHH never made it to my list of favourite films, DDLJ did.

It seems all three of us are/were in the same boat when it comes to DDLJ. When I first saw it, I was terribly bored with the beginning and even into their Euro trip. I wasn't sure I'd be able to get through it. At the end I cried, but still wasn't overly touched by it. But now the more I think of it, the more I sigh out of love because it truly is such a sweet and changing film.

It's a strange thing but that's DDLJ... It doesn't hit hard right away (like, say, Karan's films do) but grows on you slowly. It has completely stolen my heart away by now. Smile
