Even the songs were poor Copies
1 July 1999 | by Neels-2See all my reviews

A horrible movie in my opinion. Absolutely male-chauvinistic. The lead pair was at its peak at that time and the music was catchy, which probably made it a hit with the masses.

But the music Directors Anand-Milind are notorious for copying tunes note-by-note from the maestro Ilayaraja. (an unparalleled genius who has composed for over 720 movies and has the credit of composing a symphony in 28 days flat- (a feat honored by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra)

The duo of Anand and Milind has made its career out of rehashing the songs of Ilayaraja and this film's success and the lack of any copyright laws only encouraged them to copy his tunes for all their future films... until of course A R Rahman stormed into the music industry and scared the living-daylights out of these fellows...

Dil was an absolutely overrated 'masala' film which hardly entertained.
