Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge: Scene By Scene Analysis in Exhaustive Detail Index

This is one of my least popular, and most difficult, blog series.  It’s hardcore analysis, social and shot by shot and narrative and history of the film industry and history of India and everything I have ever learned all in one place.  I am up to section 20 now, and 100 screen shots, and I am barely past intermission.  But I thought I should probably just put together an index post to make it easy for latecomers to catch up.  And hopefully get a few more readers to justify the amount of effort I am putting in!


I started by going through all the SRKajol films shot by shot, so before I even got to DDLJ, I had already done Karan-Arjun and Baazigar.

Okay, prologue over!  Time for the main event.  Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, the most important film since Sholay, perfectly constructed, perfectly performed, perfect in every way, which takes many many words to explain.
