Dil Chahta Hai - Full Movie : Hindi [2001]

Akash (Aamir Khan) does not believe in love, so he does not keep girlfriends for more than two weeks. Sameer (Saif Ali Khan)
is a genial, well-meaning, desperately romantic but confused guy who is
prone to romantic infatuations and believes to have found true love
whenever he gets attracted to a girl. Siddharth (Akshaye Khanna),
or Sid, an artist by profession and the most mature of the three, is
not interested in trivial romances and is dedicated to his work.

Akash, who is not only a cad in his personal life (breaking hearts, proposing to a girl named Shalini (Preity Zinta)
in jest) but also a mischief-maker in his friends' lives, craftily
engineers a breakup between Sameer and his girlfriend. He then plans a
vacation trip to the beaches of Goa.

Sameer predictably "falls in love" in Goa
with a pretty Swiss girl, a story that ends in disaster. He returns
home to find that his parents have arranged a meeting with a potential
marriage prospect. He resists at first as he does not want an arranged
marriage, but the moment he sees the girl, Pooja (Sonali Kulkarni),
he realises that she is 'the one'. Unfortunately, she is already in a
relationship with someone else and Sameer has to be content with just
being her friend.

Sid, in the meantime, befriends and eventually falls in love with Tara (Dimple Kapadia),
an older divorcee and alcoholic, who had moved into a nearby house and
shares his love for art. He decides to keep it from her, suppressing all
hopes of a relationship as he knows that she, like most other people in
society, would consider this scandalous. When his family and friends
start finding out, everything goes wrong. Sid's mother is horrified and
wrongly accuses Tara of having led Sid on. Akash makes fun of Sid's true
intentions and his offensive remarks create a rift in their friendship.
Tara hears that Sid has quarrelled with friends and family because of
her and feeling that she has ruined his life, refuses to see him.

Akash, on the other hand, is also experiencing romantic upheaval. His parents send him to Sydney, Australia
to work for the family business. On the flight, he meets Shalini again.
He apologises for his earlier prank and asks her to show him around the
new city. Even though Shalini is engaged to marry someone else, she
finds herself agreeing and they both, eventually, start to feel a
certain "something". She tries to find out how he feels, but he holds
back. She then leaves for India to marry Rohit, her fiancé. Akash lets
her go, then realizes that he can't live without her and returns to
India to win her back. He proposes to her a day before her wedding and
she accepts with the blessing of Rohit's parents. Rohit tries to resist
but is helpless with his parents' decision and Shalini's true love for

Meanwhile, Sameer and Pooja start going out after she breaks up with her boyfriend, and Sameer plans on proposing marriage soon.

Tara is hospitalized with liver cirrhosis
and dies with Sid at her bedside. Sid and Akash reconcile (with a
little help from Sameer) and two years after their first Goa trip, the
three friends regroup in Goa where Sid meets a girl. They share a smile, implying that Sid is moving on.
