Director Vikram Bhatt has pulled off a follow up to his hit comedy flick AAWARA PAAGAL DEEWANA titled DEEWANE HUYE PAAGAL again starring Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and the brilliant Paresh Rawal in the lead roles with the gorgeous Rimii Sen playing the female lead. The film also stars Shahid Kapoor and Om Puri. The film has been produced by Firoz A Nadiadwala who was also the producer for AAWARA PAAGAL DEEWANA and the laugt-riot HERA PHERI both been incredible hits at the box-office. Hence DHP has paved the way for some anticipation. It's basically a romantic comedy with sprinkles of glamorous action, and it is for those who can embrace humor in all its perversity! Vikram Bhatt has again teamed up with the macho duo of Akshay Kumar-Suniel Shetty who have given numerous hits in the past including HERA PHERI. The movie has been lavishly shot in US and Dubai and also has a dog and parrot playing important roles along with the popular starcast.
Deewane Huye Paagal begins as a sweet romance between a cute boy-next-door Karan (Shahid Kapoor) and the ravishing Tanya (Rimii Sen). The latter is the cynosure of two evil eyes because she is in the know of certain secret information.
When Karan's friend coaxes him to track Tanya after she migrates to Dubai, he enlists the aid of a deceptively handsome investigator, Rocky (Akshay Kumar) to chase her down. But Rocky ends up falling in love with her at first sight. Meanwhile, Tanya's physically disabled friend, Sanju (Suniel Shetty) also has a soft corner for her and tries thwarting Rocky's attempts at getting close to Tanya.
The plot thickens when yet another unexpected party falls in love with Tanya, thus setting up a hilarious love pentagon with a gaggle of con men and a lovelorn flame-wannabe following her around like panting puppies. The funny climax, shot against the picturesque sand dunes of Dubai, is a mix of madness and mayhem!
The film's story- screenplay has been written by Kiran Kotrial and the dialogues penned by the talented Neeraj Vora (who is directing the much awaited sequel to HERA PHERI) and Abbas Hirapurwala. The music is by the popular Anu Malik. The film has been presented by UTV Motion Pictures and is slated for a November 3, 2005 release.
