Happy Valentine’s Day! The Age Old Question, Amitabh and Hema or Shahrukh and Madhuri?

I can only think of two distinctively absolutely Valentine’s songs (although I am sure there are more that are not as famous). The question is, which brings you more joy?

Here we have old man Amitabh celebrating with The Young Folks and dreaming of his wife of decades being there and dancing with him.

And here we have super energetic Shahrukh singing to entertain at a party and not really believing in love yet, while Madhuri dances around in a nightgown.

Which do you like best?

So sue me, I actually prefer Amitabh. He’s so happy! And everyone else is so happy he is happy!

    • I think Pyar Ke has got to be the most balloons, don’t you? Both Farah songs of course, she LOVES her balloons.

  1. The six year old likes the first one, but the nine-year-old likes the second because it has SRK. Visually I like the first one, but the song itself is better for the second. The put Madhuri in an unflattering nightgown! It makes her look like she has a belly. A central seam and it would have been so much more flattering. In general I think the costume designer for this movie chose the look regardless of how it looked on the star.


    • And I assume the 12 year old is too cool to have an opinion?

      Yes with the Dil To Pagal Hai costumes! Everyone looks TERRIBLE!!! Except Karisma most of the time, who must have coincidentally lined up witht he fashion concept.

      • 12-year-old was in class… His middle school provides decent distant learning. Well, somewhat decent. It is too easy. He gets A+ after A+. I’ve thought about asking his teachers for additional assignments but teacher husband says I’m not allowed to give them more work. Of course I try to 12-year-old more work myself (Hey why don’t you figure out who your favorite living trumpet player is?), but he doesn’t go for it.

        I like the movie Dil To Pagal Hai, I love the dancing EVEN though the costumes suck, and SRK can’t dance, and Madhuri had better chemistry with Akshay. And I was routing for Karisma the whole time.


        • Or maybe your 12 year old is just a GENIUS????

          Karisma is so awesome in DTPH, I think it is almost universal that people like her better.

  2. Amitabh is sweet and everything but I love Pyar Kar is better in every way, I love singing it! I connect to Shahrukh and Karisma emotionally in the song, not Madhuri! When Karisma sings her part, there’s so much longing on her face and also the lyrics, it’s perfect.
