  1. Omo, you loved Kuch Kuch Hota Hai too?!! Me too me too! Some 13 years ago I watched it, but I still remember every single (important) scene! SRK-Kajol just pawn pawn pawn!

  2. OMO! I think we saw it around the same time too! I just had my annual re-watched last week and am just itching to write about it! I love that film! Everything about it! I’m a huge Hindi film fan and have seen tons of movies but none have ever bumped that film off “my favorite of all time” pedestal! I blame it on a wet Shah Rukh and that dern gazebo!

    1. Hi-5ives! I also have KKCH draft saved up. I stopped because I didn’t know how to put my thoughts into words. Shud be watched and NOT read about.

      Oh wet SRK, you mean the Anjali dancing to COLORS scene? kekeke…

      I used to watch a lot of Hindi films in the past too, but then I took a break for studies and never really got back into it after that. SRK-Kajol still top my fav Hindi OTP of all time, followed by Salman Khan-Karisma Kapoor hehe..
