Snapshot of the story
Dil Chahta Hai is the story of three fun loving friends who are recently passed out of the college, unaware about the difficulties of the real world. They are very similar to any college pass-outs who likes to play pranks, make fun of any one and don’t know what to do in life. The story is all about their friendship, cracks in their friendship and their love life and how they find true happiness and friendship.
The story starts with the graduation party and a chart topping number featuring all three stars Akash (played by Aamir Khan), Sameer (Saif Ali Khan) and Siddharth (Akshaye Khanna). In that party they meet Shalini (Priety Zinta) who came with her boyfriend. All of them has different sort of characters as Aamir Khan is real prankster and doesn’t take girls seriously whereas Sameer is completely opposite of Aamir Khan and get’s attracted towards every girl he meets. Siddharth is the most mature guy and an artist and painter.
From the start the movie manages to hold the audience to their seat; Dil Chahta Hai has some of the fantastic and exotic scenes of Goa as they go for their holiday. This short story period of Goa was very well shot and you will see some hilarious moments in the movie.
Story takes a serious turn as Aamir Khan’s has made comment of Akshaye’s friend Tara (Played by Dimple Kapadia) – a divorcee who wants him to make her a painting. All of them get busy in their life as Aamir Khan goes to Australia to take care of her father’s business, Akshaye Khanna find the painting workshop more lucrative to him and Sai Ali Khan still confused as what to do and in tangles with the girl friend. It took some time for Aamir Khan to realize that he had made a mistake that day which created a rift in their friendship. But soon as he comes back and makes up with Akshaye Khanna. On the nother hand Saif Ali Khan is dating Sonali Kulkarni as Pooja and will get married soon. Aamir Khan who was never looking like he will fall in love also starts dating Priety Zinta. This was also an interesting part of the story as he always denies to accept his feelings but had to do it in front of a huge number of people who came to Priery Zinta’s wedding.
On Screen Chemistry
Dil Chahta Hai is a fast paced movie and you will never feel that the director has made any error which is an appreciable debutant for director Farhan Akhtar. Music of the move is good and that would have you whistling even after leaving the cinema hall. Preity Zinta was beautiful and Sonali Kulkarni was looking as girl next door as always. Dimple Kapadia made a come back to screen after a long time and was looking charming as ever.
I would give 9 out of 10 for Dil Chahta Hai for brilliant story telling, fantastic screen play, exotic locations of Australia considering it if the first movie of Farhan Akhtar. Aamir Khan was awesome as ever and all the trio looked exceptional.

Snapshot of the story
The story is about three Engineering students Farhan (R. Madhavan), Raju (Sharman Joshi) and Rancho (Aamir Khan) who become friends and shares a room in the school hostel. Story is a roller coaster ride of these three friends’ and how their friendship is tested by time and how they overcome these tests. Story of 3 Idiots is inspired from the book by a well know novelist Chetan Bhagat. 3 Idiot highlight India’s materialistic education system that motivates students to run for grades to get good job in western countries rather than study for knowledge. It provides a good punch line “Study for knowledge and not for grades and excellence will follow you”. The movie has lots of humor and is the ranked as one the best comedy movies ever made.
Theme of Story
Movie starts with high drama as Farhan and Raju gets a call from Chatur (One of the college friend) about Rancho whom they have not met after the convocation day in college. Chatur is the one who forced Racho for a bet to see who will be successful 5 years down the line after graduation and to tell him that he would end up in a multi-million dollar contract from a scientist that has more than 500 patents; in short to tell him he is more successful. In this search they look across the beautiful valleys on Shimla and the story runs in flashback about their college life, tussle with college principle and how Rancho tries to challenge the current education system and rules of principle. In all this he always beat others who study only for grades. On the other hand both Raju and Farhan always ranked in last position, as Raju is always afraid of failure. Farhan desparately wanted to be a wild life photographer but was forced by his parents to be an engineer. Rancho used to keep telling them that they become what they liked rather than what others want them to be. In pursuit of Rancho in valley they met Pia who is getting married but still has feeling for Rancho. Pia decides not to marry and go in search for Rancho.
Twist in the Tale
Rancho and Pia (daughter of principle) falls in love during the college days but never share their feeling for each other and one day Rancho decides that he will go to the principle’s house that night to tell his feeling and in this he accompanies both his friends Raju and Farhan. All of them do all mischievous activities in the principles house and is spotted by the principle.
The story takes the tragic turn as Raju attempt suicide when the principle asks him to become eye witness against their late night mischievous act in the house and to punish Rancho and expel Farhan. However this step afterwards is overruled.
On Screen Chemistry
Every character in 3 Idiots was played with superb acting. The first time appearance of Aamir Khan and Karina Kapoor in the lead pair was very much appreciated by fans and critics. The principle, Viru Sahastrabudhhe played by Boman Irani was truly out standing and any one could relate their college principle with him. Music is the life line of the Indian movies and 3 Idiots also score for its music by Shantanu Moitra and sung by Sonu Nigan, Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal.
The Happy Ending
The story take lots of turns before they finally meet Rancho who is the same scientist whom Chatur was looking to meet for multi million dollar deal and wins the bet of being more successful. Story ends on a happy note as Rancho and Pia ties the knot, Raju gets a job in a big company and also manages to help his family financially. Farhan was now a famous wild life photographer. Story gives a social message that “Study for knowledge and not for grades, excellence will follow you” and “Do what you like rather what others want you to do”.
