Dil Ka Kya Kasoor (translation: What is the crime of heart), is a 1992 Bollywood film starring Divya Bharti and Prithvi. The music of the film, from the duo Nadeem-Shravan, was an instant hit due to its catchy melodies. The film was a hit at the box office.
Shalini (Divya Bharti) is the only sister of a rich businessman, Rajesh Saxena, (Suresh Oberoi), who is a much older character in the movie, and more like a father figure. She falls in love with her classmate, Arun Kumar (Prithvi), after he performs a song which was authored by her under a pseudonym. But she doesn't tell Arun about this because he doesn't like her; he thinks Shalini is a spoiled rich girl; she had behaved thus a few times with him and some others. Without disclosing his own identity or purpose, he goes to meet Arun, only to find out that he is an orphan, is from an underprivileged background and is living in a hostel room, since he doesn't have a house of his own. Arun also rejects any help from Rajesh, as he would prefer to face the world on his own.
Rajesh tells Shalini that he will only arrange her marriage to Arun if he reaches a status in society comparable to theirs. Shalini knows that Arun is a good singer because he often sings at college functions. She tells her friend, Madhu, to use her money to start up a music/stage production company and indirectly encourages Arun to become a singer. She starts writing songs for Arun Kumar (without publishing them elsewhere), but still prefers to remain anonymous. Arun gets these songs from an editor, Mr. Verma, who tells him that these songs are written by a girl called Seema (who wishes to stay anonymous). Through her songs, Arun becomes popular and wealthy in a short duration and wants to express his gratitude by meeting her, but Mr. Verma maintains Seema's anonymity, allowing Arun to correspond via letters.
Finally, Shalini's brother is ready to get her married to (a very successful) Arun, and also announces his intention to Shalini. But they soon find out that Arun has married the principal's daughter, Meena (Sanam). The marriage was not the culmination of any romance, rather the apt thing to do when the principal, who was a mentor to Arun, suddenly expired, leaving his daughter behind.
Shalini then decides to remain unmarried for the rest of her life. Her health gradually deteriorates and she is hospitalized due to some serious disorders. Mr. Verma tells Arun that Seema is in the hospital and about to die. He goes to the hospital, only to find out that Seema is none other than Shalini. He tells her wife about Shalini and they go to hospital together, where Arun symbolically accepts Shalini as his wife (on being encouraged by Meena), but Shalini soon leaves the world. A daughter is born to the pregnant Meena, who's named Seema, in memory of Shalini.
