This friday Lekar Hum Deewana Dil has released which is the debut of Arman Jain and Deeksha Seth. Imtiaz Ali gave everyone a different eloping romantic theory when he gave us films like Socha Na Tha and Jab We Met. His brother Arif Ali takes cues from both the genres and tries to develop a mid way.
Story: Dinoo and Karishma are two besties amidst a group of college friends, who always deny that they are in love, later on when Karishma’s father, who is a true blue Shetty, decides to get her married to a Shetty boy, Dinoo helps her elope. It is during the eloping and over a few beers that the two realise that they should be with each other as they are a perfect match.
The two then get married and it is then that they discover that real love also needs money to fuel it for a lifetime. The rest is their journey of discovering love keeping in mind all the harsh realities of life. The director is the brother of Imtiaz Ali, but nothing about this film has the latter’s touch.
The leads are enthusiastic but inept, though the girl has a little more promise than the boy. The young leads are unable to whip up the kind of intensity that a contemporary urban love story of this nature needs in order to click.
Performance: Armaan Jain was a disappointment Very few newcomers are able to make their mark in the first run and sadly Armaan Jain isn’t one of them. Armaan’s over-the-top, loud acting, which gets a little irritating. Deeksha Seth’s acting abilities may not be excellent, but in a film of such mediocrity.
Music: In an attempt to deliver a youthful album, composer AR Rahman has come up with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, which can go down in history as one of his most underwhelming and undercooked albums. Amitabh Bhattacharya has written the lyrics.
The album starts brilliantly, with Rahman’s unconventional collage of sounds for Khalifa. After Khalifa, the only other song in the album that is good is Beqasoor, beautifully sung by Shweta Pandit. Overall, music is average not upto the expactations.
