Trivia

At one point Armaan Kohli was signed for Shahrukh Khan's role. But a major fight with the producer Shabnam Kapoor caused him from being dropped from the film. Armaan had signed a 2 film deal with Shabnam. One film was Deewana , the other was Insaaf Ki Devi. Shabnam wanted Armaan to leave Insaaf Ke Devi. Armaan Kohli' s father Raj Kumar Kohli insisted that Shabnam retain Armaan in both films or else he would walk out of both. Shabnam then decided to drop Armaan from both films. See more »

8 stars to SRK for rescuing us from the pudgy pop star!
29 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I finally got around to seeing this film. I knew that SRK was not lead billed but boy was the wait long and painful. Why any one in their right mind would have fallen for puff haired, no waistline, buck toothed Rishi Kapoor was completely mystifying. At first I thought maybe he was like an aging Elvis or something, but this man had no charisma, no personality, nothing. Yet the perky Divya falls for him and all is blissful - awful dance numbers with numerous girls in yellow all over the hill side and all.. I have given up hope that the movie will go anywhere, when BAM the pop star is gone, and things begin to look up. Divya looks way hotter in white than she did in the first half. Then the young Romeo (SRK) arrives on the scene and the story becomes much much more interesting. Hearts and minds are won over and a new love story unfolds. But the dead don't stay dead and we have to kill them yet again, it is Bollywood after all.

I think this movie might be one right at the cusp of changing over in style from the terrible eighties into the nineties. They did one half to keep the eighties crowd in and the second half to ring in the nineties. And am I glad the eighties are truly gone! Watch it to see Divya Bharti in a creditable performance, too bad she is gone. Watch it to see SRK as a young man playing the deewaana (demented), the angry, the lovelorn - and all done very well. Amrish Puri does not disappoint either. All in all an 8 just to see SRK take an absolutely rubbishy film into the realm of entertainment.
