Just as the tagline states: A perfect romance ... more or less
28 February 2012 | by tjvyas83See all my reviews

In all honesty I've not seen the Tamil or Telugu version of this movie. But it seems people that have seen them don't seem to like the Hindi version.

I was awaiting this film before even seeing the trailer. Once I saw the trailer I got even more excited. Loved most of the songs and finally went and saw the movie 1st Day 1st Show. Unfortunately I was the only person in the movie theater. That was kinda odd but cool at the same time.

The 2hr 45min film's biggest flaw is it's slow pace. But it makes up for it thanks to the super awesome songs, Kerala has been shot wonderfully, Prateik Babbar's brilliant acting. I hope he becomes the industry's biggest star. Amy Jackson did really well considering she's a first timer and looked gorgeous. The story was beautiful as well.

On the whole I'm happy with the product. The film failed at the box office which is quite unfortunate. I hope Gautam Menon continues to direct Hindi movies in the future. If you haven't seen the Tamil / Telugu version, watch Ekk Deewana Tha. If you have seen the Tamil / Telugu version ... no comments.
