Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is yet another yawn-­inducing film on confu­sed young love. Director Arif Ali faithfully apes bro­ther Imtiaz Ali’s brand of cinema. It’s about eloping, about jou­rneys that lead to self-­dis­­­c­overy and that help one find true love. The oft-done formula, which clearly feels like past  expiry date, could have still worked with some freshness of treatment. Unfortunately, it feels like leftovers of a Socha Na Tha. Not a single situation connects, not one dialogue is noteworthy. In fact, the internet lingo of the protagonists irritates. Everything feels utterly random; one is never able to figure out why the lovers came together or why they broke up. The one requi­rement of any love story is that viewers sho­uld feel for the lovers. Here you want to give them a tight slap for being stupid. The bushy-browed Armaan has no charm. Deeksha seems more confident and self-assu­red, but still has miles to go. Even Rahman’s music is not able to rise above the film and the song Mawwali Qawwali is ludicrously inserted and choreographed. The half-baked take on “maovaad” and “naxalvaad” and dropping names like Bastar and Dantewada make the film even more stupid than it would have ever aimed to be.
