Sholay vs DDLJ Review

Sholay I no doubt one of the best movies of all time. This movie was a trendsetter for the Bollywood Movie Industry. Even during the time where India had limited theaters, Sholay Box Office collection was 15 Cr. Sholay has everything placed perfectly. No matter dialogs, action, songs etc, the movie is still in trend. This movie got so popular that in 2014 the 3D version of the movie was released. This was the first Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra movie that not just made its mark in India but abroad as well.

DDLJ is one of an epic romantic love story that Bollywood has ever created. This movie is already celebrating its 1000 week in theaters and is considered as one of the most successful movies of all time. The best part of the movie is the story about how a young NRI boy visits Punjab to convince his girlfriend’s father. The best part of the movie is narration and dialog which is yet not seen in most of the movies today. Whereas Screenplay is a concern, this is a perfect movie to describe what a perfect screenplay is. The first half of the movie is all about how Shahrukh and Kajo meets and the 2nd Half is about convincing her family. This is a perfect drama romantic Bollywood movie that everyone should watch.
