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.
