What makes a film do a record-breaking run of more than 1000 weeks at the box office? A filmmaker takes a journey from the bustling heart of London, to Yash Chopra's scenic Switzerland and finally to the land of colourful Bollywood to rediscover the magic of India’s longest running film 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge' through meetings with Bollywood experts, encounters with fans and real life characters, and intimate interviews with the faces behind the epic tale.
