Lekar Hum Deewana Dil Hindi Movie Reviews

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Forget ‘Saathiya’, which felt honest and real in the manner that it addressed young love and an impulsive marriage; ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ isn’t even a satisfying rom-com about squabbling lovers. The humor is consistently juvenile, the climax so obvious you’ve guessed it long before it arrives, and the dialogue phoney despite being peppered with modern-day slang. I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five. You’ll be bored out of your mind.

LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL has got its heart in the right place. There’s a boy. There’s a girl. Romance blossoms. They face roadblocks. There’s heartbreak. They drift apart. Ultimately, all’s well that ends well. Arif uses the time-tested template to narrate a story, but, let’s not overlook the fact that a mere outline with the usual tropes can never make an out of the ordinary film. Thankfully, Arif cushions the proceedings with sparkling moments in the first hour, but the writing slips in the post-interval portions. On the whole, LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL has several wonderful moments and genuine sparks that stay with you. The film should appeal to its target audience — the youth.

Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is a sweet film that borrows the elopement theory from evergreen 70s’-80s’ romances like Bobby, Love Story and Betaab. It even has shades of Arif’s older brother Imtiaz’s Jab We Met and Highway. But this has a mint-crisp feel with its .com lingo. The lack of melodrama, for most part of the movie, is also refreshing. And if you’re looking to cuddle up this monsoon just like the slightly mismatched young couple in the movie, attempt doing it the LHDD way.

Somewhere in the middle of their escape from parental tyranny, this Bobby-meets-Highway-meets-Chalte-Chalte loses the plot. To sum it up, Lekar Hum Deewana Dil would have done much better for itself had it tried to find its original voice, instead of pandering to a vague idea of what sells when it comes to love stories. Because who has ever cracked the code for that?

At various points in Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, the word ‘blunder’ is uttered. Quite apt! And in the run-up to the climax, which predictably unfolds at a big fat wedding ceremony, the harried heroine says that she cannot handle the pain anymore. Neither can the audience. Well before the film draws to a close, you begin to wish it was shorter. Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is much ado about nothing and painfully pointless.

Was this meant to be a political awakening for two city-bred well-off ignorant-about-real-India young people? It would have been terrific if the plot had known what to make of it. But this is a story which ricochets from one awful point to another, involving the `ladka’ and `ladki’’s parents and extended families, and the `ladka’ and `ladki’ hurling themselves at each other’s throats, before getting back to more tender body parts.

Stories like Lekaar Hum Deewana Dil did very well in the ’80s but that’s just about when these concepts had begun to fade out. The problem with this film is that it has released late by a couple of decades. Director Arif Ali, the brother of Imtiaz Ali fails to entertain through this stale formula with appalling direction.

 There is a germ of an idea in showing how their grand plans fall apart as reality sets in the relationship, and they end up hating each other and return home. But it is shallowly executed. The second half is a predictable sequence of events where they both realise that they actually are in love. In a film like this, you know within the first fifteen minutes what you’re setup for – a separation and a reconciliation. That’s the one line story for Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. ​

If you are bunking college and looking for a spot to simply chill, even then I wouldn’t recommend Lekar Hum Deewana Dil to you. It’s dismally bad. Director Arif Ali brings out a flavorsome concept and ​rips it apart. Adding superfluous scenes can only lengthen a film but doesn’t give it depth. Ali’s actors Armaan and Deeksha show no chemistry all through the film which is where this romantic comedy sags. The film is such sheer waste of time and qualifies pretty much as unwatchable! ​

    Escape this downgraded version of SOCHA NA THA! [1.5/5]

    If Bollywood films are to be believed, everyone in love is predestined to elope from their wedding-mandaps at the very last moment when Pheras are to be performed. Events of similar nature do happen in real life, it’s just I haven’t been lucky enough to witness any such in my whole life of more than 30 years. But one thing I am very sure about…I have seen romantic comedies like Arif Ali’s LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL for more than I could remember. One prominent inspiration here is SOCHA NA THA, the launch-pad of writer-director Imtiaz Ali who incidentally also happens to be Arif’s brother. The similarities and likenesses are so evident; LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL could & should be tagged as a SOCHA NA THA rip-off, but an awful one. It’s an extremely long-boring-escapable journey no one will like to hop on.

    The ‘BFF (Best Friends Forever)’ duo Karisma & Dino [Newcomers Deeksha Seth & the Kapoor-clan Arman Jain] are often teased as a couple by their common friends. In a hasty & impulsive pronouncement of love and the passion of being together, they decide to elope as Karisma’s hardcore traditional father would marry her off to any boring guy of his choice and for Dino’s father; Dino is nothing but a plain nobody. Together, they take a ride that is hardly any exciting and too superfluous to find a place in your heart. Much later, just on the verge of interval; they realize the honeymoon period is over and the romantic fairytale is nowhere to be found. Follows the process of annulment of their marriage, parental participation to make things even bitter and finally, the weirdly convenient realization of love for each other! Oh, not again!

    Romantic comedies are the safest options to mark a début in Bollywood, and probably the hardest ones too. What one expects from any such effort are a thicken chemistry between leads, freshness in the plot and relatable drama to clinch your emotions at its place. Sadly, Arif as a writer-director doesn’t even try to look any different and gets hugely dependent on his brother’s flicks like SOCHA NA THA [parental angle], JAB WE MET [Stopover at small city] & even COCKTAIL [For most of styling and dialogues] for so-called inspirations. Only addition here that had slightest of promises was their accidental encounter with naxalites of Bastar & Dantewada. Disheartening to say that even this sequence ends up mocking their fight to justice & freedom in a completely ham-fisted item number!

    Arman and Deeksha both look confident and do succeed in creating some very good moments to rejoice but the staleness in writing kills it all. Of the supporting cast, most are just wasted and that included veterans like Kumud Mishra, Rohini Hattangadi and Varun Vadola. A R Rehman’s music soothes the soul in between all the baffling scenes haphazardly coming one after the other but it never rules the heart. You’ll find it hard to remember all the ‘Khaleefas’ and ‘Tu Shinings’ sooner or later.

    To sum up, LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL suffers from a time-lapse syndrome. Had it come in late 90’s when uber urban generation was gaining the spot with a certain lingo full of slangs, strong urge to reinvent new dimensions to the term ‘new-age’ and a demand of change in cinema, it would have made a clean mark. As of now, it is just another forgettable love-story! Escape it! [1.5/5]

  4. critics like Taran Adarsh & Co.are really deserved a standing ovation by bollywood because they advice u to watch even trash with lots of fun.Even this film is nothing new or refreshing to offer taran says it has some refreshing moments. I respectfully ask these critics if people spend money and time to watch any movie I don't think they need ur "I am intellegent" advice to watch movies then why u give wrong reviews . All of you are DISHONEST PEOPLE.

  5. Dear Armaan Jain,An open letter to You , since you are a public figure your work needs to be judged by people,You don't have a screen presence ,also you don't have any sort of acting skills, just being a kapoor family lad is not going to take you anywhere,its better for you to say good bye to movies cuz after this movie bollywood is going to give you a farewell anyways,nothing personal -yours audience.

  6. OOOH Dude that was too rude man. Chill Yaar its just his debut film, Maybe he needs a bit more time to learn Acting. Hopefully he will come good in his next.

  7. deeksha seth was really good wat u think?

  8. Yes You are absolutely right Dear Sir, Deeksha seth is very good ,confident,beautiful & has long way to go in Bollywood,nowadays this is the problem they are trying to launch star kids but instead of them the female opposites gets the limelight & public's attention as well, this happened with Kriti sannon of Heropanti (a.k.a as chu..panti)who was opposite Tiger shroff(male version of Kareena) she got more attention than the tiger shroff(a.k.a as Bakri shroff), Here also Deeksha Seth took full credit instead of Armaan,sameway Shradhha got the credit in Aashiqi 2,So nowadays bollywood is getting more Female oriented
