Review: Lekar Hum Deewana Dil: Stale, Boring, Disappointing! **/5

1116th BLOG POST -->>


      Lekar Hum Deewana Dil launches Armaan Jain, grandson of Raj Kapoor and Deeksha Seth. Reading the name of two youngsters, you already know that the target audience of this movie is youths in colleges or who have just come out of it. LHDD is directed by Arif Ali, brother of Imtiaz Ali. But unfortunately, you will find nothing similar in terms of originality and exclamation that Imtiaz Ali manages to produce with each of his movies. On top of that, Armaan Jain, though from the Kapoor family who are said to have acting in their blood, does not create any kind of magic in this movie. He overacts even in the scene when he is made to stand in the corner. Deeksha Seth is not very great but in this movie where everything was out of the place, she was the only one who you could watch for survival. She tries to imitate Anushka Sharma most of the times. 

             Film is projected as “romantic comedy” but the problem is that neither romance is spotted in the movie the way we expect from one releasing in this time nor comedy as we struggle to laugh even at the best of the jokes. Dialogue writer has made the movie average to worst because there’s nothing funny, memorable or entertaining in this department too. Some dialogues are so bad that you start doubting in this has really been written for a movie which stars Raj Kapoor’s grandson. Story is something that you have already watched in Saathiya and Chalte Chalte. It’s better to get those DVDs out from your shelf and watch it with your family rather than going for something that’s made on the same plot minus all the attractions those movies had. 

            When a movie is made without a proper direction, everything fails like falling cards. Even A. R. Rehman has given one of his worst and forgettable performances. Except one song, there’s nothing that you will enjoy. When a movie is based on youths, you expect a wonderful choreography where the dance steps will make you leave your seats. Unexpectedly, the actors have not been given any mind-boggling steps and whatever they did, looks so flat that you wish if you could have been part of the movie to give something better to songs, at least. 

            Summarizing, the movie tries to give a good message to youths but without originality and entertainment. Second half goes in the office of a lawyer where the couples keep coming again and again to take ahead their divorce case. Hence, even a film of 140 minutes starts to bore you. Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is something that has been gifted to us way back in 2002 and 2003. Better watch those movies than Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. I give it 2/5.
