Dil to Pagal Hai

"Where the hell is that breeze coming from?"№¢

If you don't know Bollywood you should be ashamed of yourself. Just because The Criterion Collection is too proud to house any of their films doesn't mean you can't watch one. This one is... well, long. But they're all long damnit. According to one website, Dil To Pagal Hai is "a grand musical about passionate people with dreams." See? Isn't that great? Well, look, if you don't like schmaltzy happy people you won't like it, but I do, in fact, like happy people with dreams. And if you don't, you may just need to reassess your life and rearrange your priorities so that long, happy musicals with love triangles, dances in the rain, and ubiquitous wind-effects can finally reach the top of your list. Where it belongs!

Stars (from left to right) Madhuri Dixit, Shahrukh Khan, and Karisma Kapoor.

Favorite Moments: Rain dance with children, the damn wind that's absolutely everywhere!
