The story of the gullible Indian Woman and the Fuckboy of the century. All notched up in a romanticized scenic movie that will steal your heart away. No doubt DDLJ is by far the most romantic Hindi movie ever; a tad bit more modern than Suraj Barjatya’s films. Remember?

Ek Ladka Aur Ladki Kabhi Dost Nahi Ban Sakte Hai

Now loverboy Raj from DDLJ is someone who, unfortunately in real (unlike reel) life seldom changes. As quoted by world famous dating coach Matthew Hussey, “The One Day Wager Theory, that is the most dangerous wager (Bet) that you can make.”

“They say they don’t want marriage but they will change”; they say they don’t want children “one day they will change”. The truth is, like it or not, people don’t change so easily. And making that your life mission will only lead to nothing less than a disaster or an utterly compromised life.

This Is Why Shah Rukh Khan's Character 'Raj' In DDLJ Played A ...

Tumhe kya laga main serious hun? Main toh kabhi serious nahi hota: After he says “ I love you” to Simran for the very first time! Pretends that it’s a joke, then makes her feel ridiculous about her own decision to marry her parent’s choice of man;(supposedly empowering her); and then, tells her to assume if she falls in love with him and he with her……… and blah blah blah blah blah…. Twisted Right? If a man makes you feel love is this complicated, will he be able to make you feel happy in a relationship? (This one unlike the previous dialogue is a pretty straightforward question)

The problem here is not the actors, the effort that went into making this film. But the image of “Raj” that is celebrated and that is dangerous for anyone aspiring to have a healthy relationship in his/her life. If you manifest Raj and he turns up… you’re doomed Senorita

“Kuch log ek ladki ke saath poori zindagi kaise guzaar lete hain?  Iss duniya mei itni sundar sundar ladkiya hai, kisi ki Aankhen khoobsurat hai, kisi ke hot ache hai, kissi ke baal ache hai.”

Now my question to you is:

Would you be with a guy who is hitting on your best friend for a summer time fling?

Would you believe someone if he is that unsure of his choices.. means himself?

Would you dedicate your entire life to changing him? Or Waiting for him to change? Or go out and explore a beautiful relationship where the man has as much clarity as you. And he is not confusing you to win you over, but actually bearing his truth, and being vulnerable. Doesn’t that sound more passionate and romantic?

Or you’d rather wait for an overgrown man who needs his dad’s advice, permission and money (!!) to marry a girl.

Here is a really funny article, intended to remove the unnecessary glamour from the character of Raj. What happens after Raj and Simran board the train?

Of course the idea of romance evolved since time immemorial. But the idea of romance was distorted by the Bollywood in the 90’s. A man who wants you, will want you and will make the effort; not make you wait. And that man could be Raj or Rohan, but are you willing to live as the abhla naari Simran in 2020?
