Silly...
13 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Based on the 1998 American cult movie 'There's Something About Mary', Vikram Bhatt's 'Deewane Huye Paagal' is a silly film, that doesn't pay the correct homage to the film it adores.

Remember Ben Stiller sterling performance in 'There's Something About Mary', Diaz's charm, the witty dialog placed wonderfully in the screenplay and super direction. Sadly, 'Deewane Huye Paagal' is a letdown by very silly jokes, characters, dialog and mediocre direction.

The film begins ably, but loses energy 60-minutes in the film. The culmination is the biggest downer. It's plain bad. Bhatt is a pro when it comes to making Horror films, and after watching this film, your assured that Comedy isn't his favorite dish.

In the acting department, Shahid Kapoor is mechanical. One could've never imagined that he would transform into a caliber that would even nod a film like 'Kaminey' and perform superbly. An actor who has taken Giant Strides! Akshay Kumar is over-the-top, but that's the demand of the character. Sunil Shetty is good. Rimi Sen looks stunning and plays her part nicely. Paresh Rawal hams. Johnny Lever is his usual self. Vijay Raaz stands out, a true scene-stealer. Vivek Oberoi's interpretation of a Narrator is an eye-sore.

On the whole, not much left to talk about. Verdict: Strictly Average!
