Resurrection shows used to be the trend in the ’60s and ’70s. Yet, chief Sunil Darshan returns to that nostalgic pattern for his child Shiv Darshan refreshing the film to contemporary visuals and an European setting. Darlings from past lives are reawakened and afterward they take around 2 hours to understand things and make sense of what turned out badly in pichla janam. That is precisely how things work out in Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha (EHTEDT). There is a weak endeavor to deride resurrection and sentiment over various lives, however the greater part of that comes fixed when the peak goes all ballyhoo. The main portion of the film manages to assemble some intrigue, however the last 20 minutes come slamming down like an old venue ablaze.
The story begins off as a youthful couple (Natasha Fernandez) and Sunny (Upen Patel) drive in a favor convertible auto going to a colorful European domain. Its expected to be an old family bequest of Natasha’s, the place likewise has an appended legend of a terrible sentiment between Natasha’s grandma Asha and her steady kid sweetheart Dev (Shiv Darshan). Ek Deewana Tha When Natasha achieves the creepy home, Dev bafflingly shows up onto the scene kick beginning the adoration triangle, the resurrection adventure and a murder puzzle. It’s a return of sorts to films like Woh Kaun Thi (1967) and Bees Saal Baad (1962). While that may sound promising, it turns out to be difficult to put confidence and feeling in a film where the primary sight of the legend is him swinging from a vine to save the courageous woman suffocating in a lake. Where that vine is dangling from does not make a difference. Additionally since it is 2017, the introduce of the saint being an implied phantom and after that having an enticing tryst with the mortal courageous woman seems a bit too outlandish. At last, there’s some great antiquated enchantment as well. God sends a bright shaft that sorts everything out.
The leads Shiv Darshan and Natasha Fernandez are gorgeous and performers with a urban interest. To see them frown pure Urdu sentimental discourse and behold on about idyllic love appears like a space-time continuum inconsistency. Rekka Katti Parakkudhu Manasu Yet, that is the level of jumble that EHTEDT serves up easily. There’s one sentimental melody with OK music and science relatively at regular intervals. That is not so awful, but rather all the integrity of this smooth looking film passes on the minute it resorts to the general tropes of rebirth recipe. Its like viewing a 2017 film that was composed in 3 days in 1960.
EHTEDT had a pleasant thing going when Upen Patel’s and Natasha’s characters deride the entire resurrection topic. To have the account shrewdly veer from the janam janamo ka saath to a murder puzzle would have been a decent touch. Tsk-tsk, the film just suggests that idea. At last, it plays out like a B-film with first-class creation esteems. An entire let down without a doubt.
