Ekk Deewana Tha Movie Review (BD)

Bollywood Dil Se Movie Review: Ek Deewana Tha

Give me my money back! I felt cheated!

Rating: ❤ ❤
Movie Information: IMDB, Wiki
Cast: Prateik Babbar, Ammy Jackson, Manu Rishi, Sachin Khedekar
Direction: Gautam Menon
Genre: Romance

Movie Overview:

First of all, I heartily apologize to all the people (my friends, colleagues and blog mates) for seriously recommending you the movie; I did it just because I thought (like every Kollywood fan) that the movie is a remake of Tamil super hit “Vinnaaithandi Vaaruvaayaa”. To my utter disappointment, the movie is actually remke of Telugu semi hit “Ye Maaya Chesaave”.

To all those who have no idea about VTV or YMC, let me clear the clouds. Gautam Menon directed VTV (Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa), starring Silambarasan and Trisha. The movie due to its unusual climax is considered to be a classic love story. Next, Gautam directed the same movie in Telugu language with Nag Chaitanya (on recommendation by his father Nagarjuna) and Samantha, with exactly opposite ending than the Tamil one. YMC received an average response from public as well as critics.

Now, Gautam Menon has selected the conventional climax of Ye Maaya Chesaave, rather than VTV, and that is what will make this film a sure deserved flop! I personally did not like YMC at all, and this Hindi movie is actually a remake of YMC! I am feeling cheated Mr. Menon!

It takes a lifetime of a filmmaker to deliver a masterpiece movie. But if the filmmaker himself doesn’t cherish about it, then it seems that the movie was a masterpiece rather by fluke.

I am not even interested to review this movie further, but I will do it just for the sake of formality.


Quick Review:

Prateik Babbar excels as Sachin, the lesser said about Ammy Jackson is better. Manu Rishi is noteworthy.

Story And Screenplay:
Nothing new in "this" version of movie and the screenplay is extremely weak with no subplots and overdose of songs. Dialogues by Manu Rishi are good.

Editing And Cinematography:
Editing is poor, cinematography is first rate.

Music And Background Score:
I chose not to review EDT's music as I can't  move on from VTV and YMC's music. Background Score is remastered and is brilliant.

Sorry Mr. Menon, you have just lost a loyal fan!

Final Verdict:
Please avoid this movie.Period.

Box Office collection report:
It would not last till next Friday too.

  1. Trisha was too good in the Tamil original version! I was disappointed watching the Telugu movie too. I will watch the Hindi version.....just for the music, the picturization.....but I am sure I will still love only the Tamil version. People watch it with subtitles on youtube, Trisha is just too perfect in that role.

    1. It is tough to imagine anyone else as Karthik and Jessie :)

  2. Replies
    1. sad but true, second consecutive flop in Gautam Menon's 10 year's carrier :-/

  3. The movie is damn annoying. Thank god I watched it in free.

  4. The movie was rather stupid with a cliche storyline, poor cast and horrible songs and cinematography. Even the dialogues were ridiculous. A 2-star rating seems generous; I would recommend that no one pay to watch the movie.
