Dil Chahta Hai — Some Tweet Thoughts

This week, I had been working on writing on Dil Chahta Hai. My resolution for this year that I have to write on the film. I always keep stalling and am never able to write. I have to write somehow. I did not get any time to watch any other movie and this entire week, I spent all my time thinking about the film. I am just amazed that there is so much to learn from that film every time I watch it. Maybe I am dumb that I am not able to understand its depth, but there is something that strikes me that I have not thought about before. For instance, isn't it worth noting that each of the three, Aakash, Sameer, and Sid, have their own fantasy sequence where they realize they are in love? Sid has the song Kaisi Hai Yeh Rut in which he realizes his love for Tara in the nature, Sameer has his own song Woh Ladki Hai Kahan in which he imagines himself on screen and after which he realizes his love for Pooja, and Aakash, the one who does not believe in love, is befittingly given the most dramatic sequence of an opera to make him realize his love for Shalini using the story of Troilus and Cressida? Or isn't it also interesting that Tara's profession as an interior designer is somehwat ironical? Someone whose own home is broken, designs and makes other people's homes beautiful? And, in the song Kaisi Hai Yeh Rut, Sid is seen floating on a moon, was it symbolically referring that he is the moon to the starTara? In fact, a broken star, a tootata tara, also passes through the song at that precise moment, just like Tara who is also broken? I love this movie, and have written many new points on the film. It is just I need to find the right words and I am very bad at writing them. I wish I could write better. I have written about eight pages on the film and somehow, I am not able to put in the right words. I wish I was a better writer. I am working on it and just putting some tweets on it that I wrote. I only hope I am able to finish it soon.

The broken star — Tara

Dialogue of the Day
"Ya to yeh dosti gehri hai ya to yeh photo 3D hai."
— Sameer, Dil Chahta Hai
