"OK, I'm an Indian and like many other indians I too love this movie and so you might think this is an biased review. But far from it,as even though its been 10 years since this movie was released ,no hindi movie has since come close to matching this ones greatness. I'm sure Indian readers wont be needing this review, so I will write this review for the Western readers.
For starters all hindi movies are musicals, i.e they involve song and dance numbers. I do not know why, but it has always been this way. So if you like musicals you will fall in love with this movie as the music is top notch and excellently choreographed and blends in well very well with the situation.
This is a love story to begin with and a very good one, that too. Though the storyline is familiar, boy falls in love with a girl, girl's dad is the pain in the butt,boy tries hard to win the girl and finally wins over the girl :), what sets this movie apart is the sizzling chemistry between SRK and Kajol and honest performances from the entire star cast. And I guess what appealed to the masses is that unlike in other movies, the hero does NOT run away with the girl nor does he use violence as means to justify his love for the girl. So then how does he win the girl ? Well for that you will have to watch the entire movie. So come and fall in love with the movie."

"This is such a great film! My husband and I caught it when it was shown on TCM's Bollywood night last year. If you love musicals and are curious about seeing a Bollywood movie, you should make this the first one you watch. The acting is cheesey at times but when there are heartfelt emotional scenes, the acting is top notch. Its easy to see that this was (and still is) a hit. The movie is a little on the long side but when you get into the movie, the time flies and is worth the time you spent watching it."
ONE OF THE BEST!

"I'm not Hindustani. But this movie and most of the Bollywood movies make me so jealous that I'm not! I LOVE HINDI FILMS...(or BOLLYWOOD movies!) If you haven't seen any..you are in for a treat. The dancing, the singing, the costumes, the actors...marvelous!
Sometimes the style may be a bit hard for Americans to take....because they are often not "realistic". But I LOVE the way they highlight love and family. So many of the joys of life and the virtues that make life worth living...these are in these movies! Bollywood people really know how to make movies. Hollywood movies could only dream of coming EVEN close!
The actors are handsome and absolutely entrancing...and the actresses are the most beautiful in the world! The costumes are gorgeous...makes one wish we could dress that way!
The whole family will LOVE this movie...clean and fun! Worth the work of reading the subtitles! But...be careful..these movies are addictive!
This movie has two of the most amazing of their stars...when they were just starting out...they get even better as they mature! Dil is heart...Braveheart Carries Away the Bride.
Don't miss one of the best of Bollywood!"
The music is addictive

"On the dvd, in the special features section, one of the promo spots shows several of the movie's stars telling which song is their favorite. None of them mentioned my favorite song which shows how many excellent songs there are in the movie.
Raj is a carefree young man that enjoys a good time and seems to excel at everything. He's also good at manipulating others as we first see him manipulate his father and then others.
The first half of the movie is a slapstick comedy while he and Simran travel Europe and fall for each other. In the second half, there is more drama but with comic moments. Raj follows Simran & her family to Punjab and tries surreptitiously to win over her family in the 16 days before the wedding while imposing on the groom's family's hospitality. His plan is working until the wedding is moved forward a few days, and it isn't pretty when his plans are found out.
I adore this movie and have played it over and over. Unfortunately, you can't purchase the ringtone in the U.S."
