* BettyAndVeronica: Pooja is the sweet, demure Betty who dresses in saris and dreams of true love, while Nisha is the brash, modern Veronica who is generally comfortable wearing and saying what she wants. This even extends to their dance styles. Pooja's style draws more from the ancient classical style of Kathak (which MadhuriDixit is a trained dancer in), while Nisha primarily dances in more Western-influenced motions.

Nisha (KarismaKapoor) is in love with her old friend Rahul (Creator/ShahRukhKhan), the director of the dance troupe she works in, but Rahul doesn't believe in love, until he falls for Pooja (Creator/MadhuriDixit), an orphan engaged to childhood friend Ajay (Creator/AkshayKumar, in a guest appearance). Much angst, and singing and dancing, ensues...

Made in 1997, ''Dil To Pagal Hai'' ("The Heart is Crazy") was a runaway hit, with the songs and the performances of the main actors being highly praised. Considered a must-see among many Bollywood fans, largely on account of the pairing, or "jodi," of ShahRukhKhan and Creator/MadhuriDixit, two extremely popular stars who rarely work together.

* AllStarCast: Shahrukh and Madhuri were and are considered to be superstars, and Karisma and Akshay would have been A-list or upper B-list stars at the time as well.
* AlmostKiss: One of the most memorable scenes from the movie revolves around this trope.
** Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=fvwp&NR=1&v=yITD4xKkkD4 here]].
* ArrangedMarriage: Pooja is all set to marry her childhood sweetheart so that she can officially be part of her adopted family until she falls in love with Rahul.
* BettyAndVeronica: And how.

back until she comes closer... and closer... and ''closer''...

Rahul. This trope is somewhat subverted in that while Pooja isn't in love with Ajay and his parents are overjoyed at the prospect, Ajay initiated the whole thing before his parents even found out about it.
* BettyAndVeronica: And how.Pooja is the sweet, demure Betty who dresses in saris and dreams of true love, while Nisha is the brash, modern Veronica who is generally comfortable wearing and saying what she wants. This even extends to their dance styles. Pooja's style draws more from the ancient classical style of Kathak (see MatingDance below), while Nisha primarily dances in more Western-influenced motions.
**However, this is reversed in their respective roles in Rahul's life. Nisha has been friends with Rahul long enough that he has no hesitation in barging into her apartment when he needs to, while he and Pooja don't even ''meet'' until intermission.
