    Dil Se..

    That movie was wicked! How the hell it flopped at box office?

    a lil "too wicked" for the general masses in India who decide the fate of movies on the box office. Numerous examples of other movies that are truely worth watching but don't do well on the BO.

        Same story applies here, ppl want that usual 'kahani muhabbat ki theme', if anyone tries anything different and creative, they dont like it.

            Yep.

            Chal Chaiya Chaiya was the famous song but Satrangi Re has grown on me.

            7 years to be exact. It was released in 1998 and I watched it few days ago. Some jaw dropping and stunning outdoor cinematography it has.

                Awesome movie, awesome songs. The song Satrangi Re is one of the most creative Indian movie songs I have ever heard. The film didn't make money though. That's Indian box office for you, Talha (Although, the same happens in Hollywood where idiotic action flicks make money and good movies go unnoticed).

                  i watched the movie a long time ago, so i dont remember if it was good. i stopped watching bollywood movies because they got boring and repetitive. they need to stop focusing on marriage and love.

                    Not only Satrangi Re is the creative song but cinematography was well fitted. From the Himalayan snowfields to the desert.

                    In the film, Shahrukh's character really takes the credit. His character is a wondering character as a reporter who finds out barbed wire, bombs, bitterness....and secessionist ethnic rebels still exists even after the 50 years of Independence. Maybe the majority of auidence didn't wanna hear/see about it.

                    But on the other hand, you really want character of Shahrukh to let Meghna go since she's slient most of the time in the film but it is this silence, this mysterious aura around her that draws him towards her so ardently.

                    As per Ghalib..

                      u guys said it, when it comes to the taste of the indian audiance they r tasteless! majority of sales films in india make r abroad nowadays. any director no matter how good his 'banner' is can kiss his/her lucky stars if their film is a hit in india.

                            I didn't like it on the first viewing because I was expecting Shahrukh to do a serious type of a movie. But after watching it the 2nd time on a good print (haha) I appreciated the movie much more.
                            ARR's songs from Dilse are truely classic!!

                              That movie had everything; Unique story, great acting, fantastic music, intense handling. That explains why it flopped this badly alongwith the likes of Lamhe etc. Indian audience rarely appreciates such genuine movies. Plus audience were also put off by scenes of Army men raping teenage girls and burning villages.
