DDLJ – Eight Years & still going on

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

The Hindu spotlights on Aditya Chopra’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, which is still running as a single show in a Mumbai theatre Maratha Mandir.

DDLJ could possibly be the movie running so long in the history of cinema but all that I am concerned is about the projection guy in the theatre. It was a speculation that a projection attendant in a theatre where Jackie Shroff‘s Hero crossed a couple of years, went a little abnormal. It was said that looking at the same movie throughout the day, for years, affected his thinking patterns. If that is true(which I am unsure of ), then the similar guy in this theatre should also be shown some concern.

While it’s accepted that DDLJ was superb entertainer and Kajol was a major drool-over then, I am suprised at the longevity of the movie in theatres. What about video piracy here ?

  1. Aaaah! DDLJ…its such a typical movie but it is charm personified. A movie which will hook you cause its treatment is different. Also some movies never bore you and can be viewed endlessly in the theatres. DDLJ is one of them 🙂 Sholay witnesed houseful boards when it was re-released 🙂

  3. On the contrary, I think it is a li’l stage-managed/orchestrated as well…

    I am not too sure if the cinema is making money out of DDLJ still.

  5. I have a friend who’s seen DDLJ around 125 times…or at least, thats what he says! So, I wouldnt be surprised if ppl. still frequent the theatres on a Sunday to view the ‘unbelievable’ (thats what everyone says) romance between Raj and Simran!

  7. I remember watching this movie in Maratha Mandir in 1995 when it came out. I think the tickets were Rs. 35 then.

    Interestingly I saw it again in maratha Mandir in 1999 and paid more for a bottle of Pepsi (Rs. 12) than for the ticket that time around.
