Shah Rukh Khan , Manisha Koirala and Preity Zinta starrer Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se has completed 18 years and Shah Rukh posted this adorable video on instagram remembering the film , narrating one of the most beautiful dialogue from the movie and thanking the whole team.
Dil se… was without a doubt a masterpiece and way ahead of its time that depicted one of the most unusual and and unconventional love story between a government servant ( Shah Rukh Khan ) and a terrorist ( Manisha Koirala) .
Here we have tried to jot down top 5 reasons that make Dil Se.. class apart .
The film has a song for every.damn.mood ! From slow and soulful Aye Ajnabi to full of energy Chhaiya Chhaiya (remember , as kids we used to call it train waala gaana). And who can forget the title song that created a rage when it came , thanks to the wonderful music and vocals by A R Rahman and high on energy Shah Rukh Khan. Our personal favourite ? Satrangi Re , the mise-en-abyme of the movie. And of course , Jiya Jale.
2. The love story
He was the voice of the nation , a Radio Jockey and she was the voice of unheard. They met on an ideal toofani raat and rest was as they say , a history. Theirs was indeed a hatke and daring love story. The film beauty captured the seven stages of love as mentioned in Persian literature , attraction, infatuation, love, reverence, worship, obsession, and death.
3. The Dialogues
Guess who wrote the dialogues of the film . Our very own Ramadhir Singh Ji Vidhayak aka Tigmanshu Dhulia. And he aced it.
Remember that beautiful scene shot in Ladakh in a beautiful shiny night with Shah Rukh and Manisha . What made the scene so beautiful were the dialogues and the beautiful chemistry the two shared.
Mujhe sabse jayada pasand tumhari aankhein hain Kyunki in mein jitna main dekhna chahun, Mujhe kuch dikhta hi nahi. Tumhare andar bhut kuch chupa hua hai. Mujhe who bohot pasand hai. Mujhe humare beech ki yeh duri bohot pasand hai. Agar yeh na rahe to mujhe tumhare kareeb ane ka bahana na mile.
4. The Star Cast
We cannot and do not want to imagine anyone else as Amarkanth Verma or Megha / Moina . They were perfect. And the film gave us Preity Zinta , do we need to say more?
Thank you Santosh Sivan for taking us to the tour in Leh Ladakh , Kerela and Delhi. The cinematography of the film was one of the highlight of the film.
