Raj is a rich, carefree, happy-go-lucky second generation NRI. Simran is the daughter of Chaudhary Baldev Singh, who in spite of being an NRI is very strict about adherence to Indian values. Simran has left for India to be married to her childhood fiancé. Raj leaves for India with a mission at his hands, to claim his lady love under the noses of her whole family. Thus begins a saga.
good back-story, and good acting
Unshakable, witty and deeply felt, the film will be paying emotional dividends for a long, long time.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties. It's a feast for the eyes. But what really makes this dramedy work is the acting.
Simran (Kajol) lives in London and is betrothed to the son of her father's best friend in Punjab. The summer before she is to be married, she takes a European rail vacation with friends, and meets Raj (Shah Rukh Khan). They don't realize that they have fallen in love until they have parted. Raj then follows Simran to India, determined to win her father's approval for their marriage.In this romantic comedy/drama, family values and respect for elders is placed in high regard, even while portraying that the most hardened of hearts must be softened in the face of true love. Both Kajol and Khan are excellent in their roles, maturing their characters perfectly. The supporting cast is stellar. While there is no breath-taking choreography, the songs are lovely and memorable. The costumes, cinematography, locations, and sets are all beautifully done. Overall, this is a funny, sweet, and serious movie that is a must- watch for any Bollywood fan.
I absolutely loved "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge!" I am an Italian American woman and thought I had seen all the best love stories ever made, until I saw this movie. Spectacular! I've had many friends recommend "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" over the years, but never took the time to see it, so when my friend Rajni from Mumbai asked me last week if I had ever seen it, I decided to make the time. I'm very happy I did! The movie was entertaining, fun and within a few minutes of watching the movie I found myself wrapped up in seeing Raj and Simran build a love story that made my heart melt! What a beautiful movie! I've been humming, "Mere Khwabon Mein" all day.Of course, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol were perfect for the roles of Raj and Simran, who were absolutely adorable! I have seen them coupled in their other movies, as recent as 2015's "Dilwale" but must say, this is their very best! Knowing that I will watch this movie several times more, I purchased it. So, it seems to me that "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" still mesmerizes those who have never seen it, even 22 years later!
This video teaches a great lesson in life. There might be some behaviors that the characters do that might not be likable, but it teaches us that we are not perfect. The bigger lesson u can learn from this is that you should always try to have clean heart. Additionally it also teaches you that you should never take something that doesn't belong to you as it might hurt the owner. Just like raj chooses not to run away instead he asks her parents permission first. Raj not only cared about simran but also her parents as well. To him her parents are strangers but for her they are her world. He never could hurt them. The other thing it teaches is to respect women. Women are to be respected because they are precious. Women are special and their honor is important. There many things to learn from this movie if we disregard the small details we tend to look for so that we can criticize something. In the end the big picture matters and is often remembered. Not the small details. Relive the magical moments of raj and simran.
I don't even know how the hell this film has been deemed a classic. It is cheesy to the core. The "acting" by Shah Rukh Khan is really bad, and honestly, I didn't really see anything special in his acting. I know he has the potential very now and then, but I really wouldn't consider this one of his finest. All I really noticed was an annoying laugh that kind of sounds like a goat. Kajol did okay, I think she did the best in the film though out of all the actors. And another thing I don't understand is how do people think this is a good film? I mean, SRK is a troublemaker who goes around causing mischief, and he falls in love with a serious girl (Kajol). Kajol literally lies to her parents, because she said that if she goes on her trip, she'll marry who her parents choose. During this trip she lets SRK do many awkward things to her and then they fall in love and then SRK crashes her wedding, and then Kajol totally forgets about her promise and all that crap. I mean, in one scene SRK literally undresses her while she's unconscious and then changes her clothes! That is messed up. And last, there is so much cheesy dialogue, and the story is filled with clichés. Anyways, the only thing I liked was the music. The soundtrack of this movie was excellent however. I only recommend this "classic" to people who are overly romantic. Overall I rate this film a 5.5ish out of 10. I really don't consider this a classic, I think it is overrated.
