Dil To Pagal Hai (dir. Yash Chopra, 1997) is yet another film in the YashRaj tradition of fluffy, spun-sugar romances, its tag line "someone, somewhere is made for you" tipping us off to its happy ending (even if it's a happy ending with a bit of a twist). It starred Shahrukh Khan as (of course) Rahul, a dancer and director of a dance troupe, and Madhuri Dixit as Pooja, the dancer who replaces Rahul's star, Nisha, when she breaks her foot.
Nisha is played by the incomparable Karisma Kapoor (AKA "Lolo"), sister of Bebo (Kareena Kapoor). The role of Nisha in Dil To Pagal Hai (a role she got only after it had been turned down by the likes of Kajol and Juhi Chawla, amongst others) earned Karisma a National Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Choreographer Shiamak Davar also won a National Award for Best Choreographer for his work on the film. Dil To Pagal Hai was his first film as choreographer, and he, of course, has gone on to choreograph for films such as Taal, Dhoom 2, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and, most recently, Game (amongst others).
So, combine the marvellous Lolo with the award-winning steps of Shiamak Davar, and what do you get? The song that opens the film, "Le Gayi":
Word is that Karisma will be returning to films after a break of five years, during which time she's had two children. I can hardly wait to see her back on the screen!
