Another remake of Gautham Menon from his own Tamil movie. A Telegu version was made after the Tamil one. So, this Hindi version is the 3rd version or 2nd remake of the original one.
Nowadays, a lot of Hindi movies are being remaked from Tamil originals. And, people who follows Tamil movies believes that Tamil movies are big time ahead of Hindi Cinema. So, we see a lot of frustration from those audiences who watched either of the two early versions of Ekk Deewana Tha!
However, I will recommend to those who loves romantic bollywood films and hadn't seen any of those early two versions, should watch. I really loved the movie, though it have some technical issues. Pratiek Babbar did a really nice job with the leading role of Sachin, a wanna be film maker who makes himself a successful one at the end of the story. He falls in love with his neighbor Jassi and chases his love with the struggle of being a filmmaker. The movie has lots of good music by A R Rahman. Amy Jackson played the role of Jassi and did an OK job with her Bollywood debut. She is a stunning British beauty and its really a treat watching her on screen! Kerala is another beauty of the film with some lovely cinematography.
Director Gautham Menon did his job handsomely keeping a good slow pace without any monotonous pause till the end. Overall a good 7/10 romantic bollywood film with some good cinematography and music!
