Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (Hindi: दिलवाले दुल्हिनया ले जायेंगे, Urdu: دل والے دلہنئا لے جائینگے), also known as DDLJ (translation: Those with a Heart Will Take the Bride) is an Indian film which premiered on October 19,
1995 and was released nationwide on October 20,
1995. The film was made by Aditya Chopra,
and stars Shahrukh Khan,
and Amrish Puri. As of April 2007, the film had set a record by completing 600 weeks of continuous play in Maratha Mandir, a cinema theatre situated in Mumbai.[1] Indiatimes Movies ranks the movie amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films.[1]

There are fisticuffs, comic interludes, and a stern father insisting on an arranged marriage. However, there are also fresh, new elements. Filmed in Switzerland,
it was one of the first Bollywood films to feature Indians living outside India.

The film was included in the Cinema India showcase, "The Changing Face of Indian Cinema", which toured the United States in July and August 2004. Film critic Charles Taylor of wrote "DDLJ is one of the best Hindi films made in the last 20 years" and the film has completed 10 years in 2005.[2]



Raj and Simran, played by Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol,
are young Indians living in the United Kingdom. Raj is the only son of a rich Indian played by Anupam Kher and Simran is the elder daughter of Amrish Puri. Simran meets Raj on a trip to European countries which she got permission to go after a lot of pleads to her strict dad.After some initial misadventures, they fall in love. Simran goes home and tells her family about her romance. Her father, will have nothing to do with a love marriage, and is adamant that she marry his best friend's son Kuljeet, who is a man full of himself and thinks he is a shikari (Hunter), to whom she has been promised since she was born. Her mother wants to spare Simran, but cannot sway the domineering father. Even though Simran doesn't agree to the marriage her family returns to Punjab as they prepare for the wedding.

Raj, however, does not give up so easily. He follows Simran to Punjab, meet her privately and assures her that he will save her from the arranged marriage. However, he refuses to elope with Simran because he wants everyone happy with the marriage. He wants to marry her with the consent of her father. Raj befriends the soon-to-be groom and pretends to be a friend of the family. He helps with the wedding preparations and soon gains everyone's friendship and love. At the same time Kuljeet's sister falls in love with Raj and it gets more complicated when Raj's dad suddenly appears in the family and says yes to the marriage. By now, Even Simran's father is won over. However everything comes crashing down when Raj's true identity is revealed, when Simran's father sees a photograph of Raj and Simran. Then, as Raj is preparing to leave when Kuljeet comes and beats him up for playing games with him. When Raj is about to leave, Simran's father realizes his folly and he allows Simran to leave with Raj.

Swiss appreciation
