One of the most popular Hindi films of all time, DDLJ is, as of this writing, still playing in a morning tax-free matinee show in Maratha Mandir theatre in Bombay, presumably to an audience of barely a dozen Yash Raj Films flunkies paid to populate the foyer and thereby perpetuate the legend of the film's continuing popularity. Such potential scams notwithstanding, the film does enjoy untold popularity, and for many young men named Raj, it served, in the years that followed, as an unfortunate beacon for how to comport oneself while almost failing out of college, eve teasing, travelling around Europe, falling in love, and sneakily wooing a girl who is engaged to be married to someone else. Plus Amrish Puri has the scariest father-in-law eyes of any actor in any film role, ever. And the karwa chauth scene is fantastic. DDLJ is a must watch for all these reasons.
