Dil Chahta Hai

Dil Chahta Hai (2001)

My Rating

Movie Info

As Dil Chahta Hai opens, Siddarth, known as Sid (Akshaye Khanna) is racing to the hospital due to an unexplained emergency. There, he is reunited with his old friend, Sameer (Saif Ali Khan). Sameer calls the third member of the trio, Akash (Bombay superstar Aamir Khan from Lagaan), who tells him he's not going to join them at the hospital, due to an unresolved dispute between him and Sid. The film then flashes back to earlier, happier days, to show us what came between the three close friends.

The voice that rings loudest and clearest is Farhan Akthar's, fearlessly answering the call to forward Bollywood cinema into a bright, hopeful future.

Audience Reviews for Dil Chahta Hai

Considering that I've only ever seen two Bollywood movies, (one being this one, the other the newer version of Devdas) I can't really compere this effectively to others. However, as a film in its own right it's pretty damn good. A lot of Western viewers would probably be put off by the musical element and the language barrier/having to read subtitles, but if you suspend disbelief of people spontanously bursting into song and perservere with the subs you'll be suprised at how witty and relevant it is even to a Western audience. The nightclub dance routine is visually spectacular too.

Too long, not really interesting. It had one or two good songs in it, but I felt that overall it wasn't focused.

This movie is absolutely extraordinary! Aamir, Saif, and Akshaye are all remarkable in this movie, their characters reflect a greater bond that stands outside of just mere friendship, but that of brotherhood. This bond is strengthened and tested through all: love, youth, desires, and family. The passage of time marks their friendship as they embrace new boundaries in their lives, together and apart.
There is the music as well, it beautifully transitions the sequences of events. A favorite: The three go on a vacation, and drive to the coast. ("Dil Chahta Hai.."). Another would be with Sameer declaring his love for Puja, and they are in the theatre watching a movie.
Great movie!!
