DDLJ is not just a movie to us Indians, it is indeed an emotion, a reality of an alternate universe. We are all so deeply indulged in the movie, even after 25 years of its release that we now believe that we can’t get over it at least in this lifetime. This movie was released way back in 1995 on the 20th of October. And it will soon be celebrating its silver jubilee and we are ready to stream it again. Back to back for all our lives. 

The movie is a story of two young lovers, who cross all the hurdles to take their love story to the pinnacles of success. They fight all odds, from convincing the family to crossing borders between countries and being close but far away from each other.  All these elements added up in the perfect intensity to create a movie as cherished as DDLJ. So much so, that this movie was up and running in Maratha Mandir, completing uninterrupted 23 years of continuous shows in 2018. Let’s now take a look at some of the most iconic scenes of the movie.
