I know many of you have watched all SRK movies in chronological sequence again and again. I have never done this so far, and I am ashamed to say that I have not even watched all SRK movies as a whole. There are a lot of his old movies that I just watched in pieces, looking for good SRK moments - and I have many of those. Now I thought its finally time to go back and watch them all - the whole filmography from beginning til end without exception. I will use this thread to share my personal reviews about each movie - please comment and join in if you like!

So tonight I started, and watched Deewana. I have never watched the first half. Always felt it was redundant to watch it if SRK did not even appear in it. But I must say, I really enjoyed the whole film. Rishi Kapoor, though a little chubby , acted very well in this role. And Divya Bharti was very sweet too. Sad to know that Divya did pass away not long after the release of the movie. Just recently I have watched an interview where SRK mentioned that Deewana was not supposed to come as his first release, and the makers of his other movies were very worried that they had casted SRK in their movies because he did not even appear on the poster of Deewana. Luckily they were proven wrong and Deewana turned out to be a hit as we all know and the rest is history
The story was very nice, especially for the time it was made in. I don't know much about the director of the movie, or what else he has done, but I felt he did a good job with Deewana.
SRK played the role of Raju very well, and of course with a lot of passion and energy. The character of Raju was a little rough in the beginning I felt. Some scenes reminded me of Darr, and I felt he was more like a stalker than a serious lover. Luckily he smoothed and calmed down after moving in with Kajal and her MIL.
Just for fun: Alok Nath, who played the Attorney in the movie, reminded me so much of Jason Segel. I have seen Alok Nath in many other movies, but here he was like the brown brother of Jason Segel. :p
