DDLJ


Dilwale Dulhainya Le Jayenge, apart from being the most loved romantic film of our generation, is also one of the most popular movies of all time. This super successful film produced by YashRaj banner, marked the directorial debut of Aditya Chopra and made SRK-Kajol screen jodi immortal in the public consciousness.

Trivia:
  • Perhaps one of the earliest movies referred to more by the abbreviation.
  • Made Bollywood realize the immense power of the then untapped overseas market.
  • Unfortunately started the trend of endless NRI romances, over Punjabized family melodramas - which neither had the charm, warmth or novelty of this film.
  • One of the very few Hindi films to have a tagline. It read "DDLJ - Come fall in love".
  • It is the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema. Even today, it is still running in the Maratha Mandir theater in Mumbai.

Bhoomi to Rudrabhoomi


ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ಹಿಂದೆ ಹೋಗದಿರು ಗೆಳೆಯ
ಹೋದರೆ ಹೃದಯ ಪ್ರಳಯ

ತಾಯಿಯಿಂದ ಜನ್ಮ ಭೂಮಿಗೆ
ಪ್ರೇಯಸಿ ನಗುವಿಗೆ ಮೋಸ ಹೋದ್ರೆ ರುದ್ರ ಭೂಮಿಗೆ

ನಗು ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗಾಗಿ
ಪ್ರೀತಿ ನನ್ನೊಬ್ಬನಿಗಾಗಿ

Don 3


The original Amitabh Bachchan starrer "Don" is a cult classic. Its one of the first movies I saw on our home VCP and enjoyed. It is part of my fondest childhood memories. Farhan Akhtar remade the same film starring SRK, which was breezy and stylish (in spite of the gaping plot holes and SRK's unconvincing act as simpleton Vijay) Don 2 was abysmal, arguably the weakest film from an otherwise exceptional Farhan. Yet, like this bike rider here, many are awaiting for the final movie of the trilogy.

Don 3.

Duniya Vijay


Duniya Vijay shot into prominence with the runaway hit "Duniya", portraying the role of a village simpleton with a golden heart. As is the norm, a fan association called "Duniya Vijay Abhimaanigala Sangha" showing the admiration for their idol, who is also known as "Karunaada Kari Chirathe".
