The Best Movie Ever in the History of Cinema

Author: kartik051079 from India
28 January 2007

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, till date, remains the best movie I have ever seen. Everything about this movie stands out. The story, the screenplay, the dialogues,the songs and above all the performance by each and every actor; especially Shahrukh Khan; makes this movie extra special. Every scene in DDLJ manages to make in impact. It makes you laugh, makes you cry, inspires you and above all makes you fall in love. This is also a movie with a very strong message. In today's time when most of the lovers lack the courage to fulfill their commitment made to their loved ones, this movie shows that if you have confidence in your love you can convince your parents about the same and this way you can marry the person you love the most without hurting your parents who have spent their entire life in bringing you up. I am sure that no movie before or after DDLJ can make the same impact that DDLJ managed to make. It is the longest running movie in the history of cinema and I am sure it will continue to run successfully for many many more years to come.

a finest film

10/10
Author: Zeeshan Shafi from United Kingdom
1 January 2007

This films is the FINEST films i have ever seen, there maybe some great movies, which have given amazing performances, but this one was fresh when it came out and it epitomised the idea of love...

It really made everyone fall in love...Its been 10 years since its release, and it is still running in one cinema...

Performances by SRK and Kajol, really converted the characters on paper of Raj and Simran to a real Raj and Simran. They became from fictional love stories to real love stories. I characterise them as historic lovers like romeo and juliet, Sheree and farhad, laila majnu, and once again raj and simran..

I give it my complete referral to this movie...This is my number one movie...

Best Bollywood movie till date

10/10
Author: Snigdha Lele (snig_r1@hotmail.com) from India
3 December 2006

This movie is a typical and the best Bollywood movie till date- critically approved. It released in 1995 and it is still in theatres throughout the year. And if u haven't seen it yet, first of all, that's strange and secondly see it right away! King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, plays the male lead role of Raj Malhotra and Best Actress winning Kajol, plays the female lead role of Simran. Right in the start of the movie, Simran's dad sees Raj and his friends stealing foodstuff from his department store in the UK. Simran and Raj both fall in love on a tour in Switzerland. When Simran's dad comes to know about this, he is angry and sets Simran's marriage with someone else in Punjab in India against Simran's will. Back in India, Simran finally gives in to her dad's anger, but Raj doesn't. Raj befriends Simran's fiancée and then becomes popular with everyone, even Simran's dad. But when the truth of his love for Simran is spilt out, he gives up and is ready to leave. That is when Simran's dad believes that Raj is the right guy for Simran and let's her go with him. Thus they live happily ever after.

It's lovable because it's so stereotypically Bollywood

7/10
Author: DrEbert from Washington, DC
2 March 2012

Every now and then, a movie comes along that manages to epitomize every single stereotype about its genre. For instance, "Commando" managed to epitomize a typical Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie. "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge" epitomizes modern Bollywood.

The story, the characters, the choreography, the music, even the fight scenes are all very stereotypically Bollywood. The story is long, predictable, and melodramatic. Most of the characters are one-dimensional. Those that aren't are given "depth" in typical Bollywood fashion, i.e., by having them behave completely opposite in the last act of the film than they did in the first act. The scenes in India, London, and Switzerland are all beautifully filmed -- so beautifully, in fact, that they live up to the Bollywood stereotype of having bright, colorful, over-the-top locations for each of the song-and-dance numbers, and continue to reinforce Bollywood's love affair with Europe and European culture. The music is constant, pleasant, quite melodic, quite thematic, and always somehow upbeat, with heavy use of strings, the sitar, and the piano. The fight scenes are incredibly bad, again in true Bollywood fashion. The only thing missing is the requisite courtroom scene.

And yet, in spite of all of this -- or, perhaps, because of it -- there is no doubt that "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" is an incredibly charming film. It makes for good escapist fun with incredible camp value, while also having enough genuinely good material (i.e., its songs) to make the movie into a bona fide classic instead of just a camp classic. There is a reason why this film persistently makes it onto critics' "must-see" lists of Bollywood movies. It is not because this film represents the finest of Indian art cinema. This is no "Mother India" by any means. Rather, this film represents Bollywood (i.e., Hindi-language commercial cinema) in top form. For those who were uninitiated with Bollywood films, this makes an excellent initiation film.

You will not walk away from "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge" feeling inspired or moved. You will, however, walk away from it with a smile on your face. As silly as what you just saw was, there was something enjoyable about it.

Long but charming entertainer

Author: long-ford from India
28 January 2009

This is a very long but charming Bollywood romantic comedy. It's a lot of fun for the entire family. Shahrukh overacts as usual but he and Kajol have sparkling chemistry together. This allows the viewer to suspend disbelief and have a rollicking time. The songs are romantic and very catchy. Amrish Puri is ideally cast as the stern father and Anupam Kher is lovable as the big-hearted dad. DDLJ has been copied umpteen times, and indeed it is no longer as fresh as it was in 1995, but it remains a great entertainer. Recommended to all who want a gentle introduction into Bollywood.

Overall 8/10

Classic!!! LMAO

1/10
Author: TheManwithnoname1 from India

Well, what can I say about this "iconic" movie? I don't know how many critics in the western world are aware of this "masterpiece", but I would love to witness them rack their brains to figure out why this ludicrous movie happens to be arguably the second most well loved movie amongst a nation of one billion people ( Sholay being in the first position ). It is well known that Indians are suckers for locales in Switzerland and affluent settings. However, I fail to understand why they fall time and again for the baadshah of over-acting, the great King Khan himself. Oh, and need I add that the climax fight was sheer brilliance. Even by the standards of bollywood, this movie is strictly a below average melodrama. Aditya Chopda, the director, has since gone on to offer us more masterpieces like Mohabbatein and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. The best part is, SRK fanatics uphold this as the holy grail of motion pictures. Well, to each his/her own. It is really weird living in a country which considers this much better than the works of Bergman, Kurosawa and Ray.

Not a bad movie.

7/10
Author: si_shaalini from Avinashi, Coimbatore DT., Tamilnadu, India.

But are really the second generation Indians in the U.K. like haU the characters are portrayed?The romance between the hero and heroine is good,the locations and songs also.It's a different film and has it's good moments of comic relief.The actors accents certainly don't saUnd English.It would have been more natural and realistic had it been so.WaI do the Bollywood filmmakers do this?Kajol's costumes were good and her character is too intense.And the lyrics of the songs are good.Shahrukh Khan has done justice to his role and Karan Johar in a small cameo appearance looks like a geek.The family laIf portrayed is really warm.From,Shaalini.

Fun, but nowhere near the likes of Mughal-E-Azam, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Maine Pyar Kiya.

7/10
Author: MovieInspector from United Kingdom
12 February 2011

Let me start off with the performances. Shahrukh Khan was just himself; nothing too special about his performance. Kajol was her usual emotional self too. Amrish Puri is OK in the film as is Farida Jalal and Satish Shah. The story is like every single film of it is kind. It is nothing special.I don't actually understand why this film is so famous; there is nothing about the story or acting that justifies the film's status. What Kajol wears throughout the first half doesn't do her any favours as an Indian actress. The music and dialogues are the only two good things; everything else is very typical. This doesn't come close to Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Mughal-E-Azam (1960) and QSQT (1988), but it is still a decent watch Verdict: just music and romance - I give it 7/10
