Well I asked the same question when the man came up with MUJHE KUCCH KEHNA HAI, but I was proved wrong when his publicity stunts paid off and the movie went on to become a hit despite its dumb storyline. And now even this movie has taken the best opening amont the Diwali releases!
Obviously Bhagnani wants to
introduce new faces. Thats a good thing but he must
also ensure that he gets a good script for that.
But as long as he takes such third-rate storylines and
make movies with it, it is not gonna serve any prupose,
not to the stars, the directors, or anyone involved.
Kiran (Diya Mirza) lands in the
hill station town of Dalhousie for a picnic and it is
here the local guy Suraj (Arjun Rampal) falls for her.
But things go wrong with the entry of the gal's dad. An influential and wealthy man, Ranvir Choudhary (Vinod Khanna) who can't digest a fact that a local small-town guy is romancing around with his only daughter. So he warns Suraj to leave town in thirty days, while Suraj is confident that Ranvir will change his opinion at the end of this period.
So Ranvir tries every trick on the book to get rid ofthe guy which even means getting Suraj's father in prison under a false charge. Meanwhile we have a flurry of songs and fights.
All this while, Kiran have no idea that some challenge like this is happening behind her back. And when she does find out, she sticks by her lover.
And then the big end....dad has a
showdown with Suraj, takes the gun,threatens to pull the trigger!
And then pappa dear feels the guilt and changes his

WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE TO SAY
It's quite a pathetic show right from the first frame. Ashu Trikha makes his directorial debut with this film, but he has a long way to go.The film's saving grace is Arjun Rampal.

the mixed review at Indiafm
Deewaanapan should have been titled Mindless in Mumbai. That's indeed the kahani, honey! Heed our warning: give Deewaanapan a miss if you value your sanity one bit.
the negative review at HTCinema
Deewaanapan is devoid of any of sensibility or plausibilty. Instead it is so boring that even keeping your eyes open is a Herculean effort. Words from wise: Don't even think about watching Deewaanapan.
the negative review at Rediff
Director Ashu Trikha needs to gear up a bit if he really dreams of making a new film. If Deewanapan is anything to go by, the man is in severe need of a lethal dose of reality. There is only so much deewanapan todays audiences can take. Give this one a miss. You wont lose a wink of sleep over it.
the negative review at Cinealkies
There is little method in this madness,
yet it might appeal to viewers who are looking for some
fresh faces, romance and action in their lives. All in
all, venture into this Deewanapan only if you have
nothing more exciting to do this Diwali.
Dont watch this one even if some one offers you money for it!

Wait for video if you must watch this
movie, otherwise you might go as crazy as the cast and
crew who made this film with such false conviction!
Debutant director Ashu Trikha should
think twice before making a film again.
