Exactly twenty years before Dil Chahta Hai there was a movie called Chashme Buddoor which was also about three friends (and also roommates in this case). One of the characters is also named Siddharth by coincidence. The conversation between the characters is real life like and non filmy.
There is a scene in the movie where Farooq and Deepti Naval sit in a park and wonder how couples sing and dance in movies. There is also a spoof of some old songs with Ravi Baswani and Deepti Naval just as there was spoof of old songs with Saif and Sonali Kulkarni in DCH. Just as Akshaye hits Aamir when he speaks badly of Dimple, Farooq hits his friend Ravi Baswani when he speaks ill of Deepti Naval. While that causes the rift between the friends in Dil Chahta Hai its the friends who cause the rift between the couple in Chashme Buddoor.
Check out this funny “Miss Chamko” scene from the movie Chashme Buddoor (1981). The scene does play. You have to click on the video. For some reason the image from the movie is not showing up on the video.
Here is the song spoof scene.
