Ekk Deewana Tha - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

A dull romantic film adds twists in the end to put every thriller worth its salt to shame. And an attempt to mask stiff, expressionless actors with awful makeup and even worse dubbing.

On the other end of "Valentine's Day" week is Ek Deewana Tha. Two boy-meet-girl films back-to-back might just get a bit much to handle, no?

Renowned South Indian director, Gautham Menon is known for creating moments in his romantic sagas. Though I have my doubts with his choice for the lead cast. Prateik Babbar's voice and dumbed-out expression have been a great put-off except for a couple of films in which he has bit roles. While his dumbstruck-in-love look might pass off in Ek Deewana Tha, I still doubt he'll be able to carry the film. Besides, Amy Jackson, who plays the other lead role, comes across as equally lost as far as dialogue delivery and variation in expressions go. Check it out -

Now, the only hope left is from the details of the story and moments that a love story can create. Though it's difficult to keep spirits up when the context is from the 80s that of a girl with conservative parents being pursued by a guy who belongs to a different cast.

Also, unfortunately for a movie touted as an A. R. Rahman musical, Ek Deewana Tha's music doesn't seem to impress either. Let's hope it works better as a part of the film.

Happy Sing - "an awesome start, an almost perfect Hosanna, a lovely Sharminda Hoon, a romantically touching zohra-jabeen, and a lot many average to above average to even good other tracks. "
