Arjun shines in a role that was made for him
12 February 2002 | by sweetrupturedlightSee all my reviews

I have to start off by saying that i agree with the entire population when they say that the only good thing about Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat was Arjun Rampal's performance. I also have to add that i have been a fan from that moment on. Deewanapan was a very interesting movie for me to watch. It was not really an excellent movie, the plot has been done a thousand times before, and the music is average. The direction was good though but Arjun carries the entire movie on his shoulders.

After a typical bollywood opening to the movie, the pace picks up and Arjun just gets better and better. After seeing this movie i believe that he can play a villan equally as well as a romantic lead. The way he changes his facial expressions in some scenes and then be someone totally different in another was great. His female lead was a bit weak though, but she improves as the movie progressess. The fight scenes are superb and i applaud Arjun's efforts. Anyone who says that this supermodel, turned actor cannot act, has to see this movie and revise that opinion.

Arjun is a definite star of the future. His popularity is already growing, so watch out Hrithik, i see a storm ahead!
