Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge has completed 500 weeks. Any inputs on that?
DDLJ is my all time favorite with my fav stars Kajol and SRK sizzling on screen. Great music, locales and performance jus created magic.

It just broke record of Sholay.

And I still think that Sholay is best movie in colour. Else my vote goes to Mughal-E-Azam as ever green movie of Indian silver screen.
I can watch Mughal-E-Azam and Sholay another n no of times. Both have great actors as great characters and in both movie each and every character in movie has something meaningful. Let it be Asrani's 10 min role in Sholay or mother of Anarkali in Mughal-E-Azam.

Another movie which I think I can watch umpteen times is "Mahal". I think its the best horror/suspense/thriller/serious(dont know what to call it) movie I have seen in my life.

DDLJ is still being played at Mumbai's Maratha Mandir. The weekend shows are 'House Full' and the weekday shows run at 60% capacity.

Despite of being 32% illeteracy,abject poverty its surprising to see Indian flock towards watching these movies.This kind madness is only in cities or even every illeterate villager is also obsessed with movie where actor runs behind the actress behind the trees possibly in Switzerland?

People flocking towards movies is there everywhere in the world. Watching hero and heroine dancing behind trees in Swizz is far better than watching people doing impossible things like jumping over a tree and lake, standing and fighting by standing in a bamboo tree. It is far far better than watching a movie where impossible is shown as possible with graphics and animation. Graphics cannot show emotions of a human being as it is.

But 68% knows spelling of Literacy. So it doesn�t matter if the actor is running behind the actress behind trees.

I think it's probably 'Because of', not 'Despite'.
Surprising? Hardly.

Hi,
There is nothing to write about this movie.Has all the 'virtues' of notorious hindi movies of the 90's(Irrelevant song and dance number's,fight's etc.,).It is great to have many young Indian directors discarding these stereotype story lines like a garbage.

One who has seen all time great movies like Pater Pancholi(By S.Ray) will find it very hard to appreciate this movie.

So let me get this straight. We're talking about a movie that has been running continuously for ten years? Wow! So how many theatres have been showing it? One? Ten? A thousand?

How many times have you seen it?

There are a few movies like this in the U.S., but they're so-called "cult movies", that have a dedicated audience that sees it over and over again, often in costume. The best known example of this is "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", which has been running for more than 20 years, somewhere, anyway. But they always show it at midnight, after the regular crowds are going home.

It is a sugary sweet movie, and I would get diabetes watching it more than once.. but then, I have a low tolerance to sugar.. and I imagine there are many people with a sweet tooth!
