Movies in the 70s and the 80s had a common theme: the lead actor would be a typical hero - poor had injustice been done to him, and challenged and defeated the rich. These movies were what made Amitabh Bachchan, the Angry Young Man. The 90s gave us the liberalisation of our economy and culture, and then came 1995 which told us the story of Raj (SRK) and Simran (Kajol). Simran’s father is a typical Indian man whose love language is
पैसा, इज्ज़त, नौकरी और जाती देखकर होती है शादियां,
पर अक्सर सुना है लोगों से 'जोड़ियां उपर वाला बनाता है'.
I too love SRK's movies, especially DDLJ and KKHH, but really didn't know it could have such deep messages that showcase those immense phases of love.
Hats off to your research. 👌
