And here's getting back, as promised, with the second installment of cherished onscreen friendships from the new century's Bollywood flicks.

Without much more ado, here we go!

Dil Chahta Hai (2001
)



Actors: Akshaye Khanna, Saif Ali Khan, Aamir Khan

"Dil chahta hai, kabhi na beete chamkeele din dil chahta hai,
hum na rahein kabhi yaaron ke bin..."

A phenomenal leap in Bollywood's film making and story telling, at the advent of a new century - DCH was surely everything that can be called a path breaker. Witty, and smartly befitting the youth of today, it is the tale of 3 thick mates graduating from college, and the period of their life which undergoes the transition of college to the big bad world. Love happens of course, but the dominant feature of the movie is the bonding between Akash, Sid and Sameer - the highs and lows, the amiability and disagreements, the feeling of losing what 'always shall be' to circumstances and blunders and the eventual getting it all back! Such a friendship, we say, Dil Chahta Hai!

Mujshe Dosti Karoge (2002)



Actors: Kareena Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Rani Mukherjee

"Keh do ke tum mere dil mein rahoge,
keh do ke
tum mujhse Dosti karoge... "


Raj Khanna , Pooja Sahani  and Tina Kapoor  are the portrayed childhood friends. While Raj has always been attracted to the vivacious Tina, he is completely unaware of the quiet Pooja's feelings for him. A love triangle then, where surfaces the strength of true friendship in overcoming heartbreaks and such!

Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hai (2002)



Tulip Joshi, Uday Chopra

"...yeh khushiyaan hi paayen, mere dil ne duayein di hai,
mere Yaar ki shaadi Hai..."

Translating to My Best Friend's Wedding, and yes a remake of its Hollywood namesake indeed, this is the story of Sanjay Malhotra who's opinion about a shared bonding with childhood friend Anjali Sharma changes in the moment of receiving a call which informs him of her proposed wedding to another guy.  Jealous and frustrated, Sanjay makes his way to Anjali with one intention - to stop this marriage.

Jhankaar Beats is a story about love, friendship and music. Rishi and Deep are dedicated musicians, and obsessive R.D.Burman fans. They play at a club sometimes, and compete in an annual pop music contest called Jhankaar Beats -- and have lost for the past two years. Amidst circumstances of Rishi's breaking marriage, and Deep's somewhat unplanned second time fatherhood, comes Neil, the son of their advertising agency boss and a third to the gang - who's smitten in love and sworn to win it all with the strumming of his guitar - which incidentally makes the perfect completion to Rishi's drums and Deep's keyboard. And so happen R 'N' D - who go on to win the coveted title, as things finally fal into place for each of the boys!

However, despite the hurdles and much negativity their cherished bond attracts, they stand steady and strong ... until a real test of time and relationships is thrown their way!
