History YMMV / KuchKuchHotaHai

Go To



* EarWorm: The title track is probably the biggest ear worm ever, especially for Bollywood fans.
** ExploitedTrope: It ended up being referenced in MANY other Yash Raj films, most of them being by the same director. A hilarious example comes from the movie Mohabbatein, in which a comic relief character sings it in an attempt to woo a woman, but butchers the song by singing it to the wrong tune and splicing it with Punjabi.

Added DiffLines:

* LesYay: There has increasingly been a contingent of fans who eschew Rahul altogether and ship Anjali and Tina instead. See this video essay [[https://vimeo.com/190422412]] and this Buzzfeed article [[https://www.buzzfeed.com/imaansheikh/kuch-kuch-hota-gay]].


** There's too many to count. Let's see, there's the prologue with Tina's death, with Rahul standing in front of her funeral pyre, intercut with flashbacks to their marriage, Anjali's birth, and her terminal illness being revealed (to which she even ''apologizes'' to Rahul for dying). Then, there's the speech talent show with Rahul's daughter breaking down onstage upon picking her topic (which is revealed to be about mothers), to which Rahul comes onstage and recites his own beautiful speech for her. ''Then'', there's Anjali Sharma's reaction to finding out Rahul is in love with Tina and shares a tearful goodbye with him before leaving for college. And ''then'', there's the two Anjalis meeting each other with the grown-up Anjali later finding out who she is, and then her leaving the camp while sharing a tearful goodbye with everyone. ''FINALLY'', there's the entirety of the ending which eventually becomes both this and Heartwarming.

''FINALLY'', there's the entirety of the ending which eventually becomes both this and Heartwarming.
