Bollywood, Mumbai, and all Shahrukh-Kajol and DDLJ fans were busy celebrating the completion of 1000 weeks of the epic romance film this weekend! And we feel it’s only apt to remember the best moments of the film. How? The film has some unforgettable dialogues and scenes that have stuck to the heart and mind for 2 decades now!
Let’s remember the 5 most famous ones!
- It’s okay, Senorita! Bade bade deshon mein, aise chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hai!
That ultra-charming Shahrukh Khan dialoague to Kajol that he keeps telling her all over Europe! Their chemistry is so amazing.
- Jaa Simran, jaa! Jee le apni zindagi!
Said by the Simran’s father, played by Amrish Puri, during the climax of the film, after all the dhishoom dhishoom and rona dhona! He’s holding Simran’s hand tight, and she’s begging to let go. And then he let’s go, while a shocked Simran stares at him in disbelief. Just when she had given up hope, she finds herself running towards the train (while she could have just got in through the other doo of the compartment). Oh, this one remains our favourite!
- The famous guitar tune!
Every time Simran heard that tune, she closed her ears and it went away. Except the last time, when the tune doesn’t go away and she realized that her Raj has really come! And then that scene: The green fields, yellow flowers, and Simran’s white dupatta flying behind her ass he runs towards Raj, who is standing with his guitar just a few meters away (but it still takes forever for them to meet and hug)! This is captured in almost every DDLJ poster. The best part? Every time you see the poster, you automatically start hearing the guitar tune.
- “Aao! Aaao!”
Makes you giggle already, doesn’t it? Yes! This is when Shahrukh Khan and Amrish Puri share awkward moments every morning while feeding the pigeons. They eve have a pigeon conversation, which is quite metaphorical and a turning point of the relationship between these two men!
- When the hunter gets hunted himself!
That hilarious scene when Shahrukh Khan fools Kajol about their last night’s shenanigans. With lipstick marks all over his chest and melodramatic dialogues, this scene is cute, funny, and truly represents the 90s!
Truly, this film will live not just another 1000 weeks but a 1000 years, we hope! May every Simran find a Raj!
