Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) – a film that created chains of love sagas all across India when it released on 20th October 1995 is hitting the theatres again on 12th December, 2014.
No it isn’t a remake of any sorts. The film is releasing again, yes you heard it right.
Young couples looked at this film as some kind of love bible depicting their feelings in the best possible way.
The dialogues are still a big hit. The signs and fundas explored in the movie plot became the rules of love.
As in if a girl turns back then it is a sign that she is into you.
The love of Raj and Simran the two characters played by SRK and Kajol had such a striking chemistry that almost every girl who grew up watching this film dreamt of…uhh no not Prince Charles but Raj.
The film is the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema. It is still running in the #MarathaMandir theatre in Mumbai.
The film was directed by the debutante director Aditya Chopra. The fact that the director was a fresher could well be seen with the continuity breaks and technical errors.
For example remember the scene where Simran pretends to have cut her fingers as she didn’t want anyone other than Raj to put ring in her finger?
Well, nobody would tie the bandage the way she had tied taking two fingers and putting it across.
But who cares? All the mistakes could easily let go as the film managed to capture the ultimate attention of the audience.
Love – an emotion where you don’t really get into the small details and waste your time understanding the facts, where you just let your lover sweep you off your feet…this film too mesmerized the audience into the world of love.
Yash Raj Films was at its best golden era and who would have thought this film would actually become such a mass favourite that it would re-hit the theatres.
The new trailer of the film starts with the famous track ‘Najane Mere’ and has all the important dialogues.
The most famous one being “Bade bade desho main aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hain’.
Of course how can the trailer not have the famous train scene?
This scene is like a dream scene for many girls. After watching this film many girls actually switched from their romantic wish of prince on a horse to meeting the prince in an epic moment like this one.
He waves out his hand on a moving train and she holds his hand and boards the train. The meaning derived can go on and on like the comparison between life and train…we say life is a journey and it is all about grabbing the moment. When Simran holds his hand it feels like some metaphor attached to this scene.
It comes in the end as Raj’s famous VO underlay says “Jab babuji khud tumhara haath mere haath main denge” and we see the shot of Simran getting a grip on his hand.
The film had everything to offer right from drama, humour, emotion and of course love.
Eagerly waiting for the re-release.
