The Dil Chahta Hai Movie Review

Worth your money
By N K Deoshi
Rating: 4/5

Noted lyricist Javed Akhtar's prodigious son Farhaan has attempted to pioneer a new sensibilities in Bollywood cinema with his debut flick �Dil Chahta Hai.

Apart from its yuppie look the film stands out because of its colorful cast that includes Aamir Khan, Saif Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Preity Zinta and Dimple Kapadia. Farhaan has penned a convincing script in which he has devolved every character in a different way but kept the story uni-directional.

�Dil Chahta Hai� is the story of three friends Akash (Aamir) Sameer (Saif) and Siddhart (Akshaye Khanna). Although friends they, are three distinct characters. Each has his own view of life, career and love.

Akash, for instance, does not believe much in love and has a very carefree attitude towards life. 'Easy-come-easy-go' is his credo. Even his close friend Shalini (Preity Zinta) keeps bickering about his non-belief in platonic love.

Sameer (Saif), on the other hand is very much in love and at no cost willing to hurt the sentiments of the girl in his life. He is an emotional character who wears his heart on his sleeve but doesn't have a clear view of life.

Siddhart (Akshaye) is the most mature and quiet of the three. He is observing in nature, lets out his emotions on a painting canvas and seems to have a deep understanding of life. Sid, as his friends fondly call him, is enamored with a lonely divorcee Tara Jaiswal (Dimple Kapadia). But for Tara her work and her daughter are her be-all and end-all.

The film explores the ways in which the relation between this medley of characters develops. How well the three friends groove in with each other. And what changes come in their lives and their camaraderie with the coming of three women -- Shalini, Puja (Sonali Kulkarni), and Tara.

�Dil Chahta Hai� has some good performances from its star cast. Aamir shows his command over facial expressions and swinging of moods to the hilt and Preity slips into the shoes of a modern (and emotional) gal with agility. And Saif too evens the score with his a-little-romantic and a-little-comic act.

Surprisingly Akshaye Khanna steals the show with his resisted performance in which he says much by keeping quiet. While Sonali Kulkarni has been relegated to a marginal role Dimple cuts a dash with her imposing presence.

The film has a very different music from Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy trio. And its sync sound technique (in which there is no dubbing and dialogues are recorded while acting) further enhances the performances of its cast.

Rating : Worth your money.
