DDLJ celebrates continuous run of 750 Weeks

by YRF User1 | Jun 27, 2016
The heartwarming story of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) keeps getting better and better. The film broke the continuous-exhibition record in 2001, earlier established by the movie Sholay at Minerva Theatre (5 years: 1975 – 1980). And now as of February 2010, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge has set yet another record by completing 750 WEEKS of continuous play. In a feat perhaps unmatched anywhere in the world, the magic of the evergreen romance keeps pulling audiences back to the central Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai.

Directed by Aditya Chopra and starring the quintessential pair of Shahrukh Khan and Kajol, the movie opened to full houses and rave reviews all over the world way back on 20th October 1995. It was also the first Indian movie that was received equally ecstatically by NRI as well as resident Indian audiences. The film swept that year’s every major award and picked up every single accolade of consequence, not to mention the unconditional love of movie goers all over and still continues to top the list of “the best Indian romantic film” of all time.

The forerunner of contemporary Bollywood, DDLJ changed the course of a nation's cinema and became an unparalleled brand by itself. The movie beautifully blended western trends with the traditions of the country and effortlessly showcased the Indian culture at home and abroad as one. Audiences adored DDLJ’s talented ensemble cast, soulful music, gorgeous locations and the iconic romantic moments.

This evergreen Yash Raj Film remains the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema, as it passes one milestone after another, and is presently running in its 15th year. The magic of the DDLJ keeps pulling audiences back year after year.

Clearly, people came and fell in love with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge again and again...
