Raj Malhotra in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge: What can we say about a film that remains the longest-running film in the history of Indian cinema? An all-time blockbuster! If you are not a fan of this movie, you can crib how much ever you want, but no one can recreate the magic as SRK and Kajol did! And it's a fact. The film is still playing at the Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai. Famous dialogue: Bade bade deshon mein aisi choti choti baatein, hoti rehti hain.

Devdas: Shahrukh's role as Devdas was both criticized and applauded. Although it's unfair to compare him with Dilip Kumar in the original Devdas, we believe he could have contributed a little more to the character. Nevertheless, it was a good watch. The film was included in Time Magazine's top 10 films of the millennium worldwide. Famous dialogues: Kaun kambakht bardaasht karne ko peeta hai ... hum toh peete hai ki yahan par baith sake, tumhe dekh sake, tumhe bardaasht kar sake.

Chak De! India: The film depicts the never-say-die spirit of a sportsman. SRK plays the role of Kabir Khan, an ostracised national hockey player who goes on to become the national coach for the underprivileged Indian Women's hockey team. How he moulds them into world-class players is worth a watch. Famous dialogues: Har team mein sirf ek hi gunda ho saktha hai ... aur is team ka gunda main hoon.
