There’s something incredibly romantic about Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) for any kid who grew up in the 90s. It embodies a hero who can be a common man, a heroine who can be brave but traditional and two different styles of fathers that existed in our country.
DDLJ embodies the changing face of India; A modern Indian avatar on a 70mm screen.
Here are a few iconic scenes we’ve picked from the film that will take you on a journey that India has been enjoying for 19 years.
We hope the journey never ends.
The beautiful bond between Raj and his father is played by Shah Rukh Khan and Anupam Kher. Makes us believe how cool it would be to have a father like that.
This scene with Raj and Simran (Shah Rukh Khan & Kajol) is the crux of the movie. The iconic dialogue “palace, palace, palace” takes place on stage, which still causes a lot of enthusiasm today.
One of the funniest scenes not only in the film but in the Hindi film industry in general. This scene shows Raj (Shah Rukh Khan) accidentally meeting Simran’s (Amrish Puri) father in India after a brief scheming with him in London. Watch out for the chemistry they both share .
Another extremely funny scene involving Rajt and Simran’s father is when the two come together to feed the birds in a large area in Punjab. See how to smile today.
The DDLJ vibe scene is full of drama, passion, action and romance. This scene is very precious as it is seen in Hindi cinema .
It’s been 19 years since DDLJ bewitched our hearts with his sincerity. Our love for film hasn’t gone away; diversity may have increased. DDLJ is all about memories and they don’t die so easily.
