Raj Malhotra, a young, rich and privileged, lives in a swank London mansion with his jovial father. Simran Singh, young pretty and also a Londoner, lives in a polar opposite universe. And then the two meet!
“Bade bade deshon mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai!”
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) is a London based movie. It about a young pair, Raj Malhotra and Simran Singh played by Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. They meet, they fight, they fall in love and as is with the other Yashraj movies, finish up with each other after a series of tears and dramatic sequences.
DDLJ is a simple story, simply told with some nice touch ups and smart dialogues. Shah Rukh and Kajol bring out the best in each other. Credibility is one of DDLJ’s biggest strength. Especially the first half of the movie feels so real that it could almost make us believe it was a true story of two real people.
Some movies are destiny… They change everything. And DDLJ is one of those movies. DDLJ made Shah Rukh Khan what he is today and also gave Bollywood its evergreen romantic pair – SRK and Kajol.
