The Shah Rukh Khan-Madhuri Dixit film about soulmates that all leading actresses rejected: Dil To Pagal Hai turns 24

“Kahin na kahin, koi na koi mere liye banaya gaya hai (There’s somebody someplace who was made only for me)…” Within the instances of Bumble and Tinder the place falling in love is so simple as swiping proper, that concept about soulmates could appear dated and, properly, tacky. Nevertheless, 24 years in the past, it had folks flocking to the theatres and cemented the place of Shah Rukh Khan as king of romance.

The Yash Chopra directorial Dil Toh Pagal Hai started with a captivating SRK and a stunning Madhuri Dixit speaking about their perception in soulmates. They introduce us to the theme of the movie, and the way it’s all predestined. That is the place you determine whether or not you might be invested in it or not as a result of the remainder of the movie sells the thought laborious — packaged with hummable music, smooth focus frames and delightful folks wearing stunning garments.

The movie made many people consider within the idea of affection, friendship, and the way typically each the relationships requires us to make sacrifices. Shah Rukh Khan was India’s favorite loverboy then and whether or not as Rahul or Raj, we have been prepared to purchase into that ultimate of romance. However as we speak, in 2021, can we nonetheless consider within the thought of soulmates? Whereas I’ve watched the movie a number of instances earlier than, I re-watched it not too long ago solely to understand how my perspective on it has modified. As a substitute of it from the attitude of Madhuri Dixit’s perspective, I made a decision to step into the sneakers of Nisha (performed by Karisma Kapoor).

Nisha was hopelessly in love with Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan). She is friendzoned however that didn’t have an effect on her affection for him. ‘Jispe hum marr mite, usko pata bhi nahi,’ Karisma (within the voice of Lata Mangeshkar) sings for Rahul as he’s busy celebrating Valentine’s Day. For me, Dil Toh Pagal Hai emerged as a significantly better movie coping with friendzoned, one-sided love, not like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which left me cringing.

Nisha is obsessive however she lets go of Rahul ultimately as she understands that he loves another person. There’s a respect within the bond the 2 share. There may be an understanding of different’s feelings. There may be ache too. You are feeling for Nisha however there may be nothing cringe about it. Akshay Kumar’s Ajay might need been a cameo look however he additionally depicts one-sided love, which is freed from any unfavorable emotions, even jealousy that we see in Nisha. Kudos to Yash Chopra for portraying Nisha’s jealousy in such a inventive method with The Dance of Envy. That sequence remains to be one of many epic face-offs of Bollywood.

Within the making video of Dil Toh Pagal Hai, the veteran late director calls the movie a “a movie of really feel,” and even after 24 years later, we can’t agree any much less with him. Karisma was cautious of doing the movie and had determined to reject it like many earlier than her. Juhi Chawla, Kajol, Manisha Koirala and Urmila Matondkar had reportedly mentioned no to the movie earlier than it got here to Karisma. “Each single heroine refused the movie (Dil To Pagal Hai). The position got here to me…it was a dance movie and that too to work with reverse Madhuri Dixit. Everybody mentioned, ‘No how can we dance alongside Madhuri Dixit ji.’ Initially, I too mentioned no to it because it was a dance movie and competitors dance with Madhuri Dixit. I mentioned, ‘This isn’t taking place’,” she mentioned years later.

Nevertheless, it was mom Babita who inspired her to do the movie. “Yash ji and Adi (Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra) narrated the story to me. My mom informed me, ‘It’s essential to take up the problem. You’re a huge fan of Madhuri Dixit, you need to do it. You’re employed laborious and you’ll shine’,” she mentioned. The actor went on to win Filmfare award for Finest Supporting Actress for the movie.

If you wish to have a good time the movie’s journey by watching it, the movie is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
