Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (Those with Heart Will Take the Bride) is a classic love story that has continued to capture the hearts of Mumbai cinema goers ever since it was first released in 1995. Starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol, the film is about the struggle between traditional and modern values, particularly arranged vs. love marriage in India. For those who don't understand Hindi, the storyline is simple - a young couple (Raj and Simran) fall in love while on vacation in Europe. Simran's father disapproves of Raj and pressures her to marry a guy named Kuljeet instead. Raj then tries to win over Simran's conservative father so that he can live happily ever after with Simran.
Full of choreographed dancing and famous songs, DDLJ is the film to watch to begin your foray into Bollywood. The experience at the theater is in itself a memorable experience - in a city where modern multiplexes are taking over, Maratha Mandir is indeed a reminder of what cinema halls were once like in Mumbai.
