Storyline

Vikrant and Gulab Khatri are brothers-in-law who hate each other, and it is only through Vikrant's dad, who is also a mafia underworld don, that an uneasy peace is maintained. But when he passes away, a vengeful Vikrant frames Gulab in the murder of a politician, forcing Gulab to flee to the United States. Once there, Gulab hopes to re-build his life, but this thought is in vain as his neighbors, the Acharyas, find out about him and the reward offered for his arrest - and create a mini-hell for him - forcing him to show his true colors to them - colors that may well lead to the demise of the entire family.

Cool fun
19 May 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

AWARA PAAGAL DEEWANA was Vikram Bhatt's first multi starrer The film had Akshay, Suneil and Paresh together again after HERA PHERI

The movie is based on THE WHOLE NINE YARDS(2000) and it's quite funny

It starts off okay, Om Puri's monologue is funny but the fun actually starts when Paresh enters the frame and then the comedy starts which is damn funny

The bickering of Surpiya, Amrita are funny too and also the scenes between Akshay, Aftab and Paresh and then between Suneil, Johny, Paresh, Aftab

The interval point is a surprise part The first half is a bit too lengthy though

The second half has too many sub plots like the romance part plus the songs and also the overall length plus the confusion about the lookalikes which takes the impact away Yet it is watchable especially the entire bickering between the gang and the climax is stretched too much and the film seems never ending and the finale could be better

Direction by Vikram Bhatt is good for most parts Music is okay

Cinematography is great while Stunts by Philips Ko and Abbas Ali Moghul though inspired from MATRIX were different those days though many are too similar to THE MATRIX and seem tepid compared to them

Akshay Kumar excels in his serious gang lord kinda role which he should do now as he is mostly doing nonsense comic roles Suneil Shetty comes across as a poor third here and is funny only in places Aftab seems too kiddish in his part and annoys Paresh steals the show, his mere presence instills life and is one of the best part of the film Surpiya is funny too Amrita Arora, Aarthi Chabria and Preeti are horrible, Preeti is wooden while Amrita Arora and Aarthi irritate with their overacting Johny is hilarious and not too loud Rahul Dev is as usual Asrani, Om Puri are forgotten by the time the film ends
