Off-late, many people on Facebook have been sharing this particular still from DDLJ. It seems funny or logical? Why didn't Simran get into bogey from first door? Does director want to show LOVE IS BLIND? Or director seized the opportunity for Simran to take the longer route (she's in Love, my boy) and thereby accomplish the feat of stretching the climax by 2-3 more minutes?

Personally I believe it is an unintentional error by the director. Now the viewers observes a lot more than a director thinks. But if I am to cover the director I would say, it really depends upon the way a person thinks. Generally ladies are said to like taking decision by heart rather than by brain and it is true. Mat be if this was SRK in place of Kajol as the runner, he might have entered by the last gate! I feel at that particular moment Simran was so eager to meet Raj in that situation, she did not think about it.

But if I see it logically, it is a foolish mistake by the makers. They should have made him stand in the last door of the bogey.

As noted, this is only speculation, but the woman is not running to catch a train, she is running to a man who looks to be waiting to help her aboard. Logically, she could have taken the first door, but if this is a romance, it would not be the romantic choice. I don't think this is an accident by the film-maker, but a confirmation of her intent and the intent of the film.

Looks like an appropriate answer. – Ankit Sharma Feb 6 '15 at 6:49

Who think that the director is mistaken is foolish or stupid. He wanted to show how the romance looks like. The scene came first when they were stranger and the second as lovers. If she entered from the first gate maybe the movie would have lost it's eternalittle and a scene repeated more than 100 times and one of the best ending with the best music. It would have been dry, dull and free from romance.

What does eternalittle means? Is it really a english word? – Ankit Sharma Nov 3 '13 at 21:46
@AnkitSharma I'd say it should have been "etern a little", still that's just a guess and I'm not sure what "etern" is either. – Napoleon Wilson Nov 3 '13 at 22:34
