The first half has nothing that would make you sit up and take notice. There is not even a single ‘awww’ moment. Instead, it simply bored us to death
Gautham Menon’s Hindi remake of the Tamil film, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa is definitely not the best pick this weekend, going by the first half of the film. Our reviewer who is currently watching the film texted us during the interval saying that Ekk Deewana Tha starring Prateik and Amy Jackson has no quirks, no twists or turns. It’s a just a blah love story so far. All that Prateik does in the first half is stalk his lady love who is all set to get married to the boy of her parents’ choice.
Ekk Deewana Tha lacks the pace and the cuteness quotient a love story normally has. Although Prateik’s cool hip hop movements and Amy’s clothes are a visual delight, the story itself seems quite bland and boring. So much so that you don’t even feel excited about what’s going to happen next. Let’s hope the second half has something better to offer and isn’t a further let down. Watch this space for our full review on the film.
