Raj Kanwar is one of the most successful directors in Bollywood. Almost all his films have hit the bull's eye at the box-office and he has got a distinct flair for making good musical entertainers. His latest in the offing is HUMKO DEEWANA KAR GAYE. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu in the lead roles.
Are marriages really made in heaven or are they arranged on earth? And falling in love is a matter of coincidences or is it a divine connection? These are the questions that plague Aditya (Akshay Kumar) and Jia (Katrina Kaif). Both are engaged to be married. Adi to talented designer Sonia (Bipasha Basu) and Jia to ruthless business tyconn Karan Oberoi. Aditya, an automobile engineer, is sent to Canada for training. The first time handsome Adi bumps into the ethereal and shy Jia, in a lift. And then he keeps bumping into her, in a library, or in a restaurant or on the road. She always laughs off their unexpected meetings as mere coincidences. But Adi is convinced that destiny is playing a part in bringing them together so soon. Though Jia comes from an influential and wealthy family, she is a simple girl who craves for simple pleasures like friendship and company which neither her busy father AJ Yashwardhan nor her busier fiancee Karan can give her.
Aditya comes into her busy life like a gush of fresh wind and motherless Jia blossoms under the friendship and affection Adi showers on her. His gentle humor, his caring ways and above all, his sheer zest for life draw Jia to him like a magnet.
Adi's family in Canada- his sister Simran and brother-in-law Robbie also envelop Jia in their warmth and she finally realizes what a family is all about. Where earlier she would kill time going from one shopping spree to another; her days are now filled with fun and excitement- for she never knows what Adi has planned for her next. As Adi and Jia draw closer and closer to each other, they forget one simple fact- that convention and tradition has already connected their lives to two others- Sonia and Karan Oberoi. Will Jia severe her ties with Adi and marry Karan? Will Adi forget all that he shared with Jia and start a life with Sonia? What will triumph in the end? A connection forced by convention, or a connection forged by destiny?
