Star Forged: Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet Singh, Tabu, Jaaved Jaaferi, Jimmy Shergill
Director: Akiv Ali
When Ashish (Ajay Devgn) confides in his shrink-friend (Javed Jaffery) that he’s falling for a woman nearly half his age, the latter reprimands him, “This isn’t an age hole, it is a era hole.” Properly, Akiv Ali’s directorial debut ‘De De Pyaar De’ talks in regards to the fallibilities in relationships.
Set in UK, Ashish (Ajay Devgn) and Aisha (Rakul Preet Singh) meet in a weird scenario the place the woman walks in at his pal’s bachelor’s social gathering pretending to be a stripper. Sparks circulate between Ashish and Aisha regardless of the age disparity. A number of flirty conferences down and the duo resolve to present their relationship a severe strive.
However what’s a love story with none hurdles in it? Earlier than tying the knot, Ashish means that Aisha meet his estranged spouse Manju (Tabu) and his two youngsters. Nonetheless as soon as they land in Manali, one hilarious scenario results in one other and Ashish is compelled to move off Aisha as his secretary. The remainder of the plot revolves round how Ashish and Aisha tries to get off this mess with Manju bringing in a twist of their love story.
Debutante director Akiv Ali tries to mix in humour with feelings in his first directorial characteristic and nearly succeeds in it. What works for the movie is that the characters ain’t black and white and their feelings are fairly relatable. Having mentioned that, De De Pyaar De stretches over at locations within the first half. A scene or two makes issues a bit dramatic that may be powerful to digest.
Again doing a string of motion movies and comedy flicks, Ajay dabbles with the style of rom-com after a protracted hole and it is lot of enjoyable. Additionally, it is fairly refreshing to observe the actor shed off his macho picture and let others take a dig at his age.
Rakul Preet Singh seems smouldering scorching and he or she compliments Ajay’s suave facet with confidence. Her chemistry with the actor would not look out of the place. Tabu as soon as once more proves why she is among the most spectacular abilities in Indian cinema. Be careful for her emotional outburst scene within the movie. It is going to certainly depart you with a lump in your throat.
The actress who performs the function of Ajay’s daughter within the movie is kind of annoying and her over-the-top act performs a significant spoilsport. Jimmy Sheirgill leaves you in splits each time he arrives on the display screen. Alok Nath would not get to play with many scenes.
Regardless of being an editor himself, Akiv Ali falters a bit on the enhancing desk. The cinematography of the movie is top-notch. On the musical facet, barring Vaddi Sharaban and Chale Aana, not one of the different tracks depart an enduring impression.
Regardless of its share of ups and downs, Ajay Devgn’s De De Pyaar De makes up for an entertaining journey which makes you chortle and suppose in equal measures. I’m going with Three stars.
