6: Kajol Marriage – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
The two Bhai Jaan’s of the industry Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan are back and this time they are competing for Kajol’s attention in the movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Love triangles have been a very popular theme in Bollywood movies and date back to the 60’s. However, Karah Johar’s debut movie redefined the rules of the games. Shahrukh is playing the role of the cool dude Rahul and is best friends with her tomboy friend Anjali (Kajol). They both share a love and hate relationship. Shahrukh terms love as friendship and win over the hot girl of the college Tina (Rani Mukherjee). Kajol eventually realizes her liking for Shahrukh but by then he is not up for the grabs and is already taken by Rani.
Disheartened Kajol disappears and they meet back after few years. However, this time, dynamics have changed. Kajol is already engaged to the over-enthusiastic Aman played by Salman Khan. Now, decision time for Kajol, whether to go with Salman or go back to her Pehla Pyaar i.e. Shahrukh. As everyone expects, Kajol’s Wedding eventually happens but as any other smart Bollywood bride, she keeps everyone in suspense until the end.
The Verdict: With a pair of teary eyes and high octane dialogues, King Khan manages to steal the girl from right under Salman’s nose and have the last laugh. It’s ok to feel bad for Salman Khan on this occasion, but let’s face it, Shahrukh Khan has earned the title of King of romance for nothing, right?
