In a universe of Sholay and Dosti, of Jai-Veeru and two-saint films, Dil Chahta Hai reversed the situation towards something unforeseen and unprecedented. A story about growing up of three school companions out to investigate the world, how their excursion ahead changes their own elements, reclassifies love and prompts self-revelation. From an external perspective, it may seem like your normal manly relationship, yet the film strips through the layers, things we never up until recently gambled to project onscreen. Today, in the rundown of works of art, Dil Chahta Hai stands tall even following 20 years.
Glancing back at his introduction creation, Ritesh Sidhwani delineated for indianexpress.com, “When you talk about Dil Chahta Hai, every one of its characters, be it Akash, Sameer or Sid, you identify with them since they are believable.”In the most genuine sense, Dil Chahta Hai’s trustworthiness has guaranteed it stands the trial of time. We may have seen films about ‘dosti’, ‘yaarana’ et al previously, Sholay (1975) being the benchmark, however a new interpretation of the idea that mirrored the mores of a post-progression age, was long past due in 2001.Dil Chahta Hai showed up toward the beginning of another decade, indeed another thousand years. This was after we’d survived the 90s where saints were projected in a shape, on the grounds that the achievement recipe was infrequently adjusted. So it is possible that it was the heartfelt Raj Malhotra (DDLJ) or the new age irate youngster Sunny Deol (Damini, Ghatak) or even the noisy nationalism of Border or Sarfarosh. However, what might be said about youth portrayal? They were either the agitators or the geeks consistently made to take cover behind their thick glasses.
The truth of Indian youth, the recent college grads was getting disregarded by late 1990s. Everything producers did was give them marvelous scenes, an optimistic NRI way of life and an awesome material that was far away from genuine difficulties. Co-maker, essayist and chief Farhan Akhtar acted the hero. He lifted examples from his own life, cut it into three focal characters played by Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna and glued it in a screenplay that looked authentic.”Because of all that is occurred in my life, I’ve generally been exceptionally subject to my companions. As far as I might be concerned, that was ideal to investigate in a film and show it in a way that genuinely exists in the general public, instead of the incredibly emotional “tu mera yaar hai… ” It’s decent individuals related to that,” Farhan once revealed to NDTV.The projecting of Dil Chahta Hai had an indispensable impact. I’d say a large portion of the fight was won there. Aamir Khan, who was at that point ready, persuaded Saif as well. This was when Saif was joyfully doing films like Yeh Dillagi and Main Khiladi Tu Anari. To haul him out of his ‘Ole’ picture and transform him into Sameer was difficult.
In a past meet with Mid Day, Saif shared, “I wasn’t certain about doing the film, since it resembled a third lead. I revealed to Aamir that I was playing legend in different movies, and he asked which ones. I referenced them and he said DCH is multiple times that load of movies set up. He called it great film and recently said that I need to do it.”
Saif, who had a specific ‘look’ in his movies faced the greatest challenge – of trimming his long hair, short. Truth be told the whole cast got their looks overhauled with haircuts having an essential impact. Farhan’s then spouse and superstar hair specialist Adhuna Bhabani did the needful.
