Ekk Deewana Tha Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

With Ekk Deewana Tha director Gautham Menon takes his third stab at the same story, having directed successful Tamil and Telugu versions previously. This Hindi remake is a disappointing bore of a love story that tests your threshold for pain as it hobbles along indulgently for close to 2 hours and 40 minutes.I’m going with a generous two out of five for Ekk Deewana Tha. Even A R Ramhan’s score offers only sporadic relief. The only real discovery you make through this film is Prateik Babbar’s immense likeability. Now if only the kid could act!

Though essentially a remake, EKK DEEWANA THA conjures memories of K. Balachander’s roaring hit EK DUUJE KE LIYE. Menon is a master storyteller, no two opinions on that, but EKK DEEWANA THA fails to leave an impact for a valid reason: A beaten to death plot tends to stagnate after a point. Also, Menon overstays the hospitality by dragging the film in its second hour. Just when you think the story would conclude, Menon does a time travel and starts a new chapter in this never-ending love story. That, honestly, only makes this snail-paced movie a taxing and cumbersome experience. On the whole, EKK DEEWANA THA has a few sparkling moments, that’s about it. However, it lacks the fizz for the spectator to go deewana!

Intense stories of first love are rare in Bollywood Lite nowadays. But Ekk Deewana Tha, originally made in Tamil, takes the route of extreme ardor. Love isn’t a walk in the park here; it is the war of life itself, a battle that envelops those involved and almost consumes them. Love is like a buried treasure that lies only at the end of a hard journey – and one doesn’t know till the very end whether it is really attainable at all. The good thing about Ekk Deewana Tha is that it chooses deep conversations and not deadly fists to reach where it finally wants to.Ekk Deewana Tha has its moments but it doesn’t really put you in the mood for love.

Ratings:1/5 Reviewer:Preeti Arora Site:Rediff

It’s a slow screenplay where the director hopes to convey the couple’s despair with their inability to come together. For a scenario like this, performances must be superlative to engage the viewer. Each glance, every gesture must speak for itself. It is here itself that EK Deewana Tha fails to deliver. Ek Deewana Tha is the Hindi remake of Gautham Menon’s Tamil film Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya which was a huge commercial hit. Somewhere, something obviously got lost in translation.

Song starts, music video plays, hero broods, heroine pouts, both dance. And then we go back to the baffling questions again: Will the couple get together? Won’t they? He stalks; she disappears, then reappears, she likes him, but maybe not, gets married, or perhaps doesn’t…. Oh, just get a room, and get it over with.

‘Ekk Deewana Tha’ brings back that hoary tradition of love-at-first-sight in a film that exasperates you more than making you sigh : I’m happy to note that it can still be done, this business of losing your heart to a beautiful stranger at one glance, but not in this stuttering, near-obvious way.

It’s a stretched attempt to render a love story between two people from different backgrounds and mind frame. The first half becomes intolerable, while second half brings in some emotional sight. In parts, the movie leaves a pleasing effect, surviving on the hope of freshness. However, as the story proceeds, the interest starts diminishing, with everyone around hoping for an end.Fresh pair with a partially good on-screen chemistry trying to be a part of a lovey-dovey love story could be one reason to give it a try. A dragged storyline which is not worth the climax disappoints. Girls, who can endure anything for a feel good factor to see a guy madly in love with a girl, can too grab a ticket. Overall, Ek Deewana Tha entertains sporadically.
