20 Best Kajol Movies (and Where to Watch Them)

Published on

Be it cult romances like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge or recent OTT ventures like Lust Stories 2, Kajol has been one of the most popular Bollywood actresses. If you wish to get a glimpse at her filmography, our streaming guide brings you the very best Kajol movies along with all the information that you need to stream them.

Which Kajol movies should I watch first?

Kajol burst onto the Bollywood scene in the early 1990s with her debut film Baazigar (1993), where she played the role of Priya Chopra opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Her portrayal of a young woman seeking revenge for her sister's death garnered widespread acclaim and earned her a Filmfare Award for Best Actress nomination.

One of Kajol's most iconic roles came in 1995 with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, where she portrayed Simran Singh, a young woman torn between her family's wishes and her own heart's desires. Her chemistry with Shah Rukh Khan and her endearing performance as the lovable Simran catapulted her to stardom and cemented her status as one of Bollywood's leading actresses. The film remains one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time.

In 1998, Kajol starred in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai as Anjali Sharma, a tomboyish college student who realizes her love for her best friend, Rahul, played by Shah Rukh Khan. Her portrayal of Anjali earned her widespread praise and several awards, including the Filmfare Award for Best Actress.

But to watch Kajol’s more dramatic and serious performances like in Fanaa (2006) and My Name Is Khan (2010) are some great options. In Fanaa, Kajol portrayed Zooni Ali Beg, a visually-impaired Kashmiri woman who falls in love with a mysterious tourist, played by Aamir Khan. Her performance was lauded for its depth and emotional intensity.

Kajol delivered an equally powerful performance in My Name Is Khan as Mandira, a single mother who struggles to cope with the aftermath of a tragic event. Her nuanced portrayal of Mandira's pain and resilience earned her critical acclaim and another Filmfare Award nomination.

Other notable Kajol movies to watch include the ensemble romance Kabhi Khushie Kabhie Gham (2001), the mystery thriller Gupt (1997), and the Stepmom remake We Are Family (2010). Lately, the actress has also taken on OTT projects like the Netflix anthology Lust Stories 2 (2023) and the Disney+ Hotstar legal drama series The Trial (2023), a remake of The Good Wife.

Why is Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge Kajol’s best movie to watch?

While My Name Is Khan is her best dramatic performance and Kuch Kuch Hota is a cult favourite, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (aka DDLJ) offers perhaps her most iconic role. As Simran, Kajol displays effortless chemistry with Shah Rukh Khan and captures the transformation from a woman living in her family’s shadow to a free-spirited individual. The film’s long-running success ensures that it is always fondly remembered whenever people talk about Kajol. Aditya Chopra’s directorial debut is still considered as ‘90s-era Bollywood’s most quintessential romance.
