Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is one of the latest releases which marks the debut of Kareena and Ranbir Kapoor's cousin, Armaan Jain. After watching the movie, I feel that the aspiring actor needs to work a lot to become a good actor just like his cousins, Kareena and Ranbir.
Lekar Hum Deewana Dil also marks the directorial debut of Arif
Ali who is the younger brother of famous filmmaker, Imtiaz Ali. The
movie Le Kar Hum Deewana Dil is a mixed bag of some classic films
like Love Story and the hit Imtiaz Ali films like Jab We Met and
Love Aaj Kal. In short, the story is very stale and we have seen a
lot of this since decades.
Lekar Hum Deewana Dil starts with the fun filled college life of
friends who enjoy their teen lives. From partying to drinking, they
are cool and chilled out. Then comes a time when Karishma (Deeksha
Seth) is pressurised to tie the knot as soon as she graduates. She
tries hard to make the guy say no to the marriage by seducing him
at the very first family meeting.
Over beer, she finds out a solution with her best friend, Dinno
(Armaan Jain) that they are compatible and must get married. Just a
week before the engagement, Karishma and Dinoo elopes from their
house as she doesn't want to get married with the lucrative
marriage offer proposed to her rich dad.
Now starts the real struggle as the teen guy doesn't take right
decisions and is careless as well. They keep going from one city to
another. We see some really crazy scenes where Karishma says that
she did not carry much money as Dinoo didn't ask her too. Is this
really possible for couples of this generation and age!
Over their journey the couple spend good times together but
after facing a few troubles, they start fighting, arguing and
finally they split and goes back home. This is all because she
wants the Dinoo (who saved from getting married to the guy her
father selected) to apologise simply because she was
After filing divorce, they fight like cats and dogs which is
very typical among college couples. We see a lot of drama and then
suddenly they realise that they were happy together. This happens
when they start recollecting their good days which they both shared
on their journey. However, the couple get divorced and compromise
in their lives. Karishma says yes to the groom selected by her
father and Dinoo starts focusing on his studies.
What happens after they get divorced is very typically
The story is very stale and failed to entertain the audience.
Taking up already existing concept of eloping and college romance,
Arif Ali failed to bring something fresh and unexpected on the
silver screen. Music by AR Rahman is something good that we loved
in this movie.
Acting: Armaan needs to learn a lot. He is
still very immature on silver screen and lacks proper expressions
as well. We can clearly make out that it was like a rehearsal and
not the actual take! Deeksha on the other side played
