There’s just so much to him that it becomes really hard to point out one or two things and keep talking about it. Kjo has a perfect sense of humour , fantastic fashion sense, free spirited nature and excellent perspective, which reflects in the films he makes or produces. On his special day, let’s talk about the best 10 things that make Karan Johar film a Karan Johar film! Take a look!

Friendzone-Kuch-Kuch-Hota-HAiFairytale Lovestory

Karan Johar is the reason why every other girl started writing a diary about her Rahul, who she hoped was just about to step into her life. His films proved that fairytale love stories do exist, doesn’t matter if only in movies. But no, Karan’s films are little different than any other love stories, because this one’s more dramatic and more… Karanish, if we must say.Kabhi-Kushi-Kabhi-GhamThe K Factor

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, My Name Is Khan, Kurbaan, Kaal.. well, you get the point, don’t you? In the earlier days, Karan Johar’s films had the K factor. However, the things changed after a while.Mothers-day-Kabhi-Kushi-Kabhi-GhamA Song For Every Event And Emotion

Every Karan Johar film is a roller coaster ride of emotions. The film switches from so many stages and with every switch, there’s a perfect song to lift the moment up and add up the perfect colours. We usually don’t see this in any other Bollywood film, but in a Karan Johar film, a different song, for example, before falling in love, during falling in love, in love, hurt in love and so on songs are mandatory.Friendzone-Kal-Ho-Naa-HoDoing Same Thing But Differently

The basic concept of every Karan Johar film most of the times is similar. There’s a love story, which is pretty twisted because the girl loves the guy who can’t be with her because he is dying or something like that or is a total jerk and in love with someone else, then after a lot of pain, tears and moments of “what”, the girl either falls in love with the “meant to be” or the jerk guy finally comes to his senses and falls in love with the girl.  Kal Ho Na Ho, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I Hate Luv Storys and more sort of felt so. However, we are sucker for such films and we can’t help but admire the films Karan Johar makes or produces.YJHD22062013Why Be Boring When You Can Be Fashionable?

If it’s a Karan Johar film, apart from love story, drama and music, you’ll surely see everything in a fashionable way. It’s all about the style for Karan. So much that he’ll just drop a song in the film on fashion and style. Take Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I Hate Luv Storys and Student Of The Year for example!

2-statesA Perfectly Flawed Family

Karan Johar believes in keeping his fairytale stories little closer to the reality by depicting how weird families can get in his films. Take Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Wake Up Sid, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, 2 States, Student Of The Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Wake Up Sid for example. Different films, different families but the quotient of weirdness was always there.Hrithik-Karan-JoharFrom Beast To Beauty

Karan Johar’s films do have that puberty stage. Yes, at first a very important character is shown fat or not attractive in the film and boom, soon enough as the character grows up he or she transforms into a totally unexpected person with jaw-dropping good looks and charms. Take Hrithik’s character in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham or Kajol during her college days in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and the transformation the two went through later on.Student-Of-The-yearLove Triangle

Love triangle is another definition and very important part of Karan Johar’s film. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Student Of The Year and so on are the perfect example of that. We see the perfect two people who are just made for each other, but no, one of them doesn’t love the other one. But wait.. in the end he or she will.Shah-Rukh-Khan-Kabhi-Kushi-Kabhi-GhamFancy Ceremonies

If its Kjo film, there has to be some fancy or many fancy ceremonies. Big Birthday bash, Mehendi, engagement ceremony or the marriage. Without loud music, big hall and lots of dancers in their shiny outfit, it isn’t a ceremony and if there is no such ceremony in a film, then it is not a Karan Johar film. There has to be a grand event in the film because a Karan Johar film in itself is no less than a grand event.Yeh-Jawani-Hai-diwaniHappy Endings

No matter how many complications are there in the film, how much drama or what not, there will be a dreamy happy ending to it no matter what. Even if the hell breaks loose in the film, in the end, everything will be okay. It has to, or else it’s not the end.
