Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge Reviews

Raja Sen


Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge is, by sheer dint of originality, one of the best Hindi films made in the last 20 years...We all have our favourite moments from the film -- Raj's valiant AlPacino-AlPacino attempt at Europeanese; Anupam Kher's befuddled attempts at engineering marital bliss, unaware of the bride in question; Tujhe dekha to jaana sanam, when Lata Mangeshkar sang as gloriously as gold; an alarmed Raj stammering 'beer' instead of lassi to Amrish Puri; and there are women, I kid you not, who actually swoon each time Shah Rukh, driving a convertible during Ho gaya hai tujhko to pyaar sajna, runs a hand through his windswept hair.

This is one film that will make you laugh, blush, cry and bring you out of the theaters smiling. Again, it is a must-watch for one and all and the best part is, this one is a complete family entertainer. You may not be the one to believe in true love but there is no harm to watch it on celluloid. For me, this film certainly holds a special place and as lovesick as I can be, I would surely hope there are ‘Raj-Simran’ love stories out there, everywhere.

    As of now, I don't think Aditya Chopra's magnificent directorial debut "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge" has been as remarkable as the lovable nineties. What it still remains, though, is a lush, beautifully escapist but dazzlingly compelling romantic-comedy, which serves froth, cheekiness, cheesiness and cutesy charms with such palatable and palpable diligence, and with so masterful the craft, that you are absolutely glad you were there for this incredibly romantic and stirringly joyous, fun ride.

    Yes, you might think now that there are parts which carry little resonance today, and yes you are absolutely right in there. But I don't recall a film with as terrific romantic pairing as Kajol and Shahrukh as the demure Simran and the cutely heroic Raj. There's always a freshness imbued with this film which consistently draws you towards it's storytelling, and it's consistency. It's a film so sharply Bollywood, it's irresistible.

    From whichever walk of life you might be, please watch 'DDLJ'. It's an iconic romance to cherish for the ages, and it is never less than enjoyable- it's perfectly amazing, and of course, to just state the facts once again, what cheery and iconic classic!
