Critics Review


A pep-up

Slick and witty, Dil Chahta Hai is an entertainer. Soppy, too. But good fun! Ravi Chandran's camera is so delightfully unobtrusive he makes it look like a piece of cake. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's music's super woofer quality.(more)

We need more films like this

Dil Chahta Hai is a rare film on male camaraderie, on bachelor bonding. It is a fun film catering strictly to urban youth from middle and upper middle class which will find a reflection of their longing and lifestyle in it.(more)

Worth your money

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. (more)
