Had the potential....
16 May 2005 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

DVPV is a story of 3-couples, sorry 3 1/2 with immortal melodies of R D Burman interlaced between them:

Couple #1: Typical Mills & Boon love-story between Jimmy Shergill and Hrishitaa Bhatt

Couple #2: Condensed form of Abhimaan and Akele Hum Akele Tum with Madhavan and Namrata Shirodkar

Couple #3: Windower coming to terms with life with Sanjay Suri and Sonali Kulkarni

Couple 3 1/2: Love out of pity story with Rakesh Bapat, Bhavana Pani & Riya Sen

Obvious overdose of characters with inadequate screen time to justify their existence in the storyline. And add to that, the songs are like unwanted pop-ups surfacing every 5 mins interval (14 songs!!! Are we competing with HAHK?). Admist this the story takes a back-seat and the script gets loaded with loose ends.

Songs - Kavita K was a good choice while Hariharan isn't.

Obvious references are drawn to Jhankaar Beats which was a tribute to R D Burman as well. But Dil Vil Pyar Vyar appears dwarf in comparison.

Anant Mahadevan should restrict himself to acting (and voice-over for Maddy) - direction apparently isn't his cup of "chai".
