For starters all hindi movies are musicals, i.e they involve song and dance numbers. I do not know why, but it has always been this way. So if you like musicals you will fall in love with this movie as the music is top notch and excellently choreographed and blends in well very well with the situation.
This is a love story to begin with and a very good one, that too. Though the storyline is familiar, boy falls in love with a girl, girl's dad is the pain in the butt,boy tries hard to win the girl and finally wins over the girl :), what sets this movie apart is the sizzling chemistry between SRK and Kajol and honest performances from the entire star cast. And I guess what appealed to the masses is that unlike in other movies, the hero does NOT run away with the girl nor does he use violence as means to justify his love for the girl. So then how does he win the girl ? Well for that you will have to watch the entire movie. So come and fall in love with the movie.
`Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' (translation: "The brave heart will take the bride") was released in `95 and is unquestionably one of the most beloved Indian films ever to come out of Bollywood. This Yash Raj comedy, romance, drama stars the incomparable Shah Rukh Khan and the beautiful Kajol as two young British Hindustani's, Raj and Simran, who meet during a one month European vacation. Things do not start out well for the two, but slowly the ongoing banter of dislike and ridicule between them transforms into friendship and finally so much more. Unfortunately Simran is leaving for India soon after their return to England where she will fulfill her Father's wishes and be wed to a stranger in a pre-arranged marriage. Will Raj follow her to the Motherland in hopes of stopping the wedding and claiming Simran for himself? If he does who will win out in the end, Love or Tradition?
I guess 1.1 billion Indians can't be wrong. Shah Rukh and Kajol are perfectly matched as foils and lovers, they are absolutely marvelous together. Watch and see two of the biggest stars in the world in top form, you'll love it too!
I hope that tells you something about the quality of the film - the performances, cinematography, script/storyline, editing, and score are almost flawless. This is one of those movies that made me laugh and cry more than once during the first and subsequent viewings. There's a reason why it has run for 800 consecutive weeks in India!
If you're looking at buying this movie, I'll assume you know how awesome it is and/or have read other reviews, so I'll just add a comment on the DVD itself.
I bought the one that said it had English subtitles, not knowing whether or not the original had any. I did not know at the time DDLJ is on Blu-Ray, or I would have just ordered that instead.
The video quality was acceptable, although I would have liked to see such a famous film remastered. The DVD menu is animated and cute. There is an option just to play the songs, which is nice, as sometimes that's enough to relive the experience without watching all three hours of it again.
The one problem I would note is that the subtitles disappear during the scene where she breaks her fast for the Karwa Chauth (right when they are putting the candles in the water). The titles do return a few minutes later, but I do wish that wasn't a problem.
The movie's great, though, so I have to give it five stars anyway. My love for it trumps any technical glitches.
But bottom line - if you like the movie enough to consider a purchase, just go ahead get it on Blu-Ray. That's what I'm going to do now.Read more ›
Sometimes the style may be a bit hard for Americans to take....because they are often not "realistic". But I LOVE the way they highlight love and family. So many of the joys of life and the virtues that make life worth living...these are in these movies! Bollywood people really know how to make movies. Hollywood movies could only dream of coming EVEN close!
The actors are handsome and absolutely entrancing...and the actresses are the most beautiful in the world! The costumes are gorgeous...makes one wish we could dress that way!
The whole family will LOVE this movie...clean and fun! Worth the work of reading the subtitles! But...be careful..these movies are addictive!
This movie has two of the most amazing of their stars...when they were just starting out...they get even better as they mature! Dil is heart...Braveheart Carries Away the Bride.
Don't miss one of the best of Bollywood!
