Trivia

The song "Aaj Na Chodunga Tujhe Dum Dama Dum" was added after the film's release. The director of the film, Indra Kumar, revealed in an interview that he loved the song but ran out of funds before he could shoot it. So he promised himself that if the film was a hit, he would incorporate the song into it. The film did indeed become a superhit and Indra Kumar intended to keep his promise. However, by that time he was already started filming "Beta" with Anil Kapoor and Madhuri. So he shot the song on the haveli set of "Beta". See more »

One of the best when it released

Dil was a youthful film with Aamir and Madhuri being paired together for the first time (or was it second with Deewana Mujh Sa Nahi?). Either way, the pairing was fresh and the audiences flocked to the cinema halls to make this film the biggest hit of the year.

The story in a nutshell was that of Anupam Kher, who runs a tiny shop buying old newspapers but wants his only son Raja (Aamir Khan) to get married to a rich businessman's (Sayeed Jaffery) daughter Madhu (Madhuri Dixit). He even tricks Jaffery into believing that he himself is a rich business tycoon. Initially Raja and Madhu cannot stand each other but soon they fall in love only to their parents opposing to the alliance once Jaffery discovers the truth about Anupam Kher. Will Raja and Madhu unite? The film has everything that a good entertainer during the 90s demanded. Comedy, action, drama, romance and good songs. Director Indra Kumar received a well deserved nomination for this film while Madhuri Dixit bagged her first filmfare award.

Music directors Anand-Milind continued their top phase with this film, which was the best music of the year until Aashiqui and Nadeem-Shravan decided to rewrite history. Nevertheless, the songs of the film were extremely popular and continue to be popular till date. This is one of the few albums where all the songs were a hit.

All in all, Dil is a good entertainer and a recommended watch. Go for it!
