Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006)

Humko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006)Exotic locations, well lace of A class actors with superb performances blended into a modern day romantic story headed by good track record director – Raj Kanwar (Andaz), what would you expect ?

Definitely a hit !!

But…, However …

HUMKO DEEWANA KAR GAYE is body beautiful, minus soul.

Inspired by director Bronwen Hughes’ Ben Affleck-Sandra Bullock starrer FORCES OF NATURE [1999], which was remade by Mehul Kumar as KITNE DOOR… KITNE PAAS [2002] HDKG is a good opportunity gone amiss. HDKG is too sweet to make it sour. With snippets from TITANIC, NOTHING HILL and many more Hollywood romantic blockbusters, HDKG falls flat in editing and the screenplay deparment which utimately drowns the whole movie.

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu, Anil Kapoor


Aditya [Akshay Kumar, an automobile engineer, is engaged to Sonia [Bipasha Basu], a fashion designer. As individuals, Aditya and Sonia are not on the same wavelength. For Sonia, career comes first. And as much as Aditya tries to overlook those facts, they keep coming in the way.

Though the marriage date is fixed, Aditya has to leave for Canada to learn about the technique of a new car model, to be launched in India; while Sonia has to leave for Paris for a fashion show.

Aditya arrives in Canada where his sister Simran [Bhagyashree] lives. He meets the family, but cannot live with them as the company has given him an apartment close to the workshop. But he makes it a point to meet the family on weekends.

He bumps into Jia [Katrina Kaif] more than once. Jia, daughter of business tycoon Yashwardhan, has come to Canada to shop for her wedding. Her marriage has been fixed with business giant Karan Oberoi [Anil Kapoor].

Jia is a simple girl with simple needs. She had everything she desired in childhood, but yearns to spend time with her ever-so-busy father. Now, the man her father has chosen for her hardly has any time for her. Aditya and Jia manage to spend time with each other and as time passes, the friendship thickens.

However, a misunderstanding with Aditya makes Jia return to India to get married to Karan. Aditya also returns to India to get married to Sonia and does not attempt to meet Jia ever again.

But fate makes them meet for the last time — at Jia’s wedding!
