Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge Reviews and Ratings
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.
