Dil Chahta Hai (The Heart Wants)

Dil Chahta Hai (The Heart Wants) is a 2001 film set in Mumbai, India and Sydney, Australia. Directed by Farhan Akhtar, the movie features a scene of an opera performance of Troilus and Cressida.

Three friends, Akash (Aamir Khan), Sameer (Saif Ali Khan) and Siddharth (Akshaye Khanna), discover that post-collegiate life will test their tight-knit bond. As sweet Sameer falls for Pooja (Sonali Kulkarni), an unavailable beauty, Siddharth risks everything to pursue an older divorcée named Tara (Dimple Kapadia) whom his friends and family find unworthy of him. Meanwhile, brash Akash travels to Australia, where he reconnects with Shalini (Preity Zinta), a girl he’d previously wronged.
