DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAAYENGE

DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAAYENGE


In 2001, DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE (DDLJ) - a movie which needs no introduction, broke the continuous-exhibition record, established by the movie SHOLAY at Minerva Theatre (5 years: 1975 - 1980). And now as of March 2009, DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE has set yet another record by completing 700 WEEKS of continuous play in Mumbai's Maratha Mandir theater. This makes DDLJ one of the largest grossers in Indian film history and still counting!

Directed by the immensely talented Aditya Chopra and starring the quintessential pair of Shahrukh Khan and Kajol, the movie opened to full houses and rave reviews all over the world way back on 20th October 1995. The film swept that year's every major award and picked up every single accolade of consequence, not to mention the unconditional love of movie goers all over and still continues to top the list of ''the best Indian romantic film'' of all times.

The forerunner of contemporary Bollywood, DDLJ changed the course of a nation's cinema and became an unparalleled brand by itself. The movie beautifully blended western trends with the traditions of the country and effortlessly showcased the Indian culture at home and abroad as one. Audiences adored DDLJ's talented ensemble cast, soulful music, gorgeous locations and the iconic romantic moments.

An achievement, perhaps unmatched anywhere in the world, the magic of the DDLJ keeps pulling audiences back year after year. This evergreen Yash Raj Film remains the longest running movie of Indian cinema and is presently running in its 14th year.

Clearly, people came and fell in love with DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE again and again...
