Cult film

What qualifies as a cult film technically? Is Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge a cult film? Let's discuss.

I guess it's a matter of perspective. For Indians and Bollywood/Hindi film buffs, DDLJ is a classic. For other audiences, I could see how it would be considered a cult film. However, it's pretty well made, and I often think of cult films as possessing some sort of endearing flaws or other intrinsic elements (and not just market forces) that kept them from becoming mainstream hits. A good example of a Bollywood cult movie by those standards is Gunda, one of my all-time favorites. (Here's my review: https://accessbollywood.net/2013/11/01/ ... unda-1998/)
