Dil Maange More!!! (transl. The Heart Wants More!!!) is a 2004 Indian Hindi-language romantic comedy film directed by Anant Mahadevan and produced by Fourth Wall Productions. it features Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia, Tulip Joshi, Soha Ali Khan (in her film debut), Gulshan Grover and Zarina Wahab. It was released on 31 December 2004 and it was a box office failure though it boosted the careers of both Shahid Kapoor and Ayesha Takia..
Dil Maange More!!! is the story of Nikhil Mathur’s (Shahid Kapoor) quest for true love. His passions are his town Samarpur, a small hill station in Uttarakhand and football. He is desperate to fall in love with one woman but ends up with three women in his arms ready to swear undying love for him.
He is first shown in love with Neha (Soha Ali Khan), his girlfriend of four years. Neha, an ambitious girl, leaves their town to go to Mumbai to become a flight attendant. Nikhil follows her to bring her back. In Mumbai Railway Station, Nikhil bumps into Shagun (Ayesha Takia), a dominant, combative girl. She instantly shows her disliking towards him. Though the two part ways, fate has something else in store for them, as he starts living above Shagun's house. Shagun always argues with him whenever they meet. On the other hand, he gets in good terms with her mother Kavita (Zarina Wahab). He also gets to know that Shagun's father left them when she was 12 because of which she doesn't trust anyone and puts a strong facade for everyone, though she is really soft from inside. Nikhil continuously tries to convince Neha to return; he does not succeed. He lands a job in a music store, which is run by A.R. Rehman (a parody of A.R. Rahman) (Gulshan Grover), exactly opposite the institute where Neha is training. There, he meets coworker Sarah (Tulip Joshi). Nikhil keeps trying to convince Neha but only gets rejection. In the end, on her first flight day, she breaks up with him. Dejected, he decides to return to Samarpur. Sarah, having heard about Samarpur from Nikhil, requests to accompany him. He agrees.
At Samarpur, Nikhil finds Sarah to be totally opposite of Neha. His mother likes her too and he is relieved to know that Sarah is in love with Samarpur and won't have any problem in settling there. Convinced that she also has some feelings for him, he decides to talk to Sarah about it. But suddenly, Sarah demands to leave Samarpur for some reason and promises to call him once she reaches Mumbai. But Nikhil never receives the call.
He comes back to Mumbai to find Sarah. However, he gets to know that Sarah already has a boyfriend and she did everything to make him jealous, thinking that he is cheating on her, which disheartens Nikhil. He decides to finally leave Mumbai for good this time. He goes to say goodbye to Shagun's mother. There, he reads Shagun's computer diary and learns that she is actually in love with him. He couldn't take another heartache and decides to leave. Learning that Nikhil is leaving for ever, Shagun runs to the Railway Station and finds Nikhil sitting on a bench. Fate seems to be playing again, Nikhil's train didn't arrive that day. He decides to take one more chance and proposes to Shagun and she accepts, but things turn as Neha returns, wanting him back. When Shagun sees Neha hugging Nikhil, she leaves fuming in anger, believing him to be cheater just like her father. Nikhil tells Neha to leave him alone as he is in love with Shagun. Kavita (Shagun's mother) requests Shagun to talk to Nikhil for one last time and listen his side of story as well. A.R. Rehman believing Sarah to be the reason of Nikhil's agony tries to fix him up with Sarah, who has apparently returned after realizing that her boyfriend was a fraud. She hugs him and again, Shagun, who has come to talk to Nikhil, sees them and goes berserk.
After hearing the whole story from Nikhil, A.R. Rehman arranges a party at a yacht; all the girls attend. They argue, and all three fall in the water. Nikhil quickly goes to help but only saves Shagun, who doesn't know how to swim. Meanwhile, Nikhil, thinking that he has lost Shagun forever, returns to Samarpur. Shagun finally realizes that Nikhil really loves her and follows him to Samarpur, where the two decide to live there happily ever after. As Shagun is confessing her love, we see Neha, Sarah, and A.R. Rehman saying that their plan was successful, implying that everything was just an act to get Nikhil and Shagun together.
