King Khan is called the King of Romance for a reason. He has raised the bar of romance to an ultimate level over the years through his work, a level that is tricky for even the charming of the guys to compete with. Right girls? 😉
Dedicated as he is, his loyalty and determination in loving a person has never lowered down since years. Right from Kabhi haa kabhi naa to Dil toh pagal hai to Kuch kuch hota hai to Rab ne bana di jodi to Jab Harry met Sejal, King Khan has always challenged himself by expanding and revising his ideas and ways of romance in his Films, giving a hard time for the budding lover boys to meet his level of Classic Romance and win or impress their crushes.
Let’s have a quick look back on the memory lane and recollect the top 5 King Khan Romantic movies that we can never ever forget and always have them as our benchmark. These ones are my personal favorites:
To start with we have our always favorite;
“Bade bade deshon mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai Senorita!”
DDLJ (Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge)
This movie is the best example of how a lover should overcome all the obstacles and fight to get his beloved. Raj is in love with Simran and he believes that Babuji would accept them, he goes to an extreme level and comes down to India with the same belief. All of this is his underlying faith that justifies the idea of ‘hardships always pay off with your love’. Not only that but, the scene where Raj tries to talk with Simran about marrying someone she doesn’t even know gives us the feel about every arranged marriage. He points out the male chauvinistic society in a subtle way proving his points quite well.
Next is the one with pretty songs like;
“Chaand taare tod laau, saari duniya par main chaau, bass itna sa khwaab hai” and
“Main koi aisa geet gaau, ke aarazoo jagau agar tum kaho”
This movie never disappoints us as it is a perfect combination of a relate-able common middle class man with small aims and dreams in his mind and his falling in love with someone who responses with the same feeling by the end. The way Rahul tries to impress Seema and finally has to fight to get her is what ends well with the perfect song “Ek din aap yun humko mil jaenge”. It summarizes the whole romance beautifully.
When talking about romance how can we forget the movie where Raj Aryan makes the strongest mind melt with love?
The title itself justifies the whole concept of love and romance. Even though Megha, Raj Aryan’s beloved commits suicide, we can see the love that he has for her throughout the movie. Megha’s death triggers Raj to prove the point that love can change people and he he believes that love can overpower hatred, thus melting even the strongest of thoughts and stances taken by Amitabh ji in the movie. Not only that but he also tries to spread love among his students and helps them to follow their heart. (We so wish to have teachers like him, don’t we?)
SRK’s recital of the poetry in Mohabbatein is the most romantic way of expressing the feeling of love, care and affection by just closing his eyes, ah! he aced it and no one can ever do it the way he did it.
“Zindagi toh har roz jaan leti hai.. Agar zindagi se bachne ke liye kabhi bomb suit nahi pehna toh bomb se bachne ke liye kyu pehne?”. This dialogue gave us the feels, didn’t they?
Jab tak hai jaan
Last film by India’s greatest director Mr. Yash Chopra and A.R.Rahman for the music along with SRK. This combination is the wonderful thing that we as an audience got to experience. The best romantic director, romantic music composer and romantic actor working together got the audience bend their knee with the feelings of respect and heartfelt gratitude towards all of them.
Decades after ‘Fauji’ we got to experience the angry yet lovable part of SRK. This movie is a poetry in itself with the emotions of betrayal, hate, love, passion, compassion, revenge flowing throughout, without any violence. To top it all the song ‘Saans mein teri saans mili toh mujhe saans aayi’, is something we cannot get out of our head and remains in our hearts even now.
Last but not the least, this movie got us all crying our eyes out and had us feel lost with puffed eyes.
Kal ho na ho
Do we need even say anything about this movie??? Didn’t we all hate Karan Johar for making our love SRK die in the end?
This film is remembered for so many things one of which is the;
‘Mere naina meri Naina ko dhoondte hai’ and
‘ Main ankhein band karta hun toh tumhein dekhta hun. Aankhein kholta hu toh tumhein dekhna chahta hun’ and
‘Kisi ladki ko itna pyaar karu ki marne ke baad bhi uske liye pyaar chorh jaau’.
Ah!!!! Don’t they give us the ‘Uff’ feeling in our hearts?
Aman Mathur makes us realize that sometimes it is necessary to sacrifice our love for the sake of our beloved.
What do we say to the Baadshah of romance, we are all his Jabra fans and SRK always keeps us entertaining and shall love him Jab tak hai Jaan, Jab tak hai Jaan!!
LOVE YOU SRK <3
