Dil Chahta Hai is a 2001 Hindi movie.I really loved this movie a lot. It was directed by Farhan Akhtar and was a hit in cities in India and overseas. According to fans, it broke new ground by showing Indian youth as they are today. The characters depicted are upper-class and cosmopolitan. They live in lavish houses, wear designer clothes, attend art exhibitions and performances of Western opera, and travel overseas as a matter of course. Some critics say that this is why the film did not do well in the non-urban areas; the lifestyle depicted was just too city oriented. The style of the film and its setting was well appreciated. One song sequence recapitulates Bollywood dance history; one song drops the usual dance accompaniment and establishes the character's state of mind through lyrics and a moody photo collage. There is an extended opera sequence and a song-and-dance inside a painting. I think this is one of the very best movies i have seen in my life.
