Synopsis :
“Dil Chahta Hai” is the story of three friends Akash (Aamir Khan), Sameer (Saif Ali Khan) and Sidharth (Akshaye Khanna). Just out of college, they have different view points about love. Sidhart loves a divorcee (Dimple Kapadia). Sameer, who constantly keeps falling in and out of love, finally settles for a girl (Sonali Kulkarni) chosen by his parents. Akash, who does not believe in love, goes to Australia to handle his father’s business. He meets Shalini (Preity Zinta) who is betrothed to another man and they become friends. Their friendship soon turns into love and Akash has to accept the inevitable. Director Farhan Akhtar`s (son of lyricist Javed Akhtar and scriptwriter Honey Irani) promising debut attempt is an entertaining tale with a different perspective on the friendship angle. Shankar - Ehsaan - Loy have come up with a winning score. Songs like the title number ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Koi Kahe Kehta Rahe’ grow on you.
