Hailing from the new age genre of Hindi cinema that presents a fresh and youth-targeted perspective, Ekk Deewana Tha retells the classic, intense love story with fresh impetus for a new generation of cinemagoers, releasing through Twentieth Century Fox on 17th February 2012.
Ekk Deewana Tha weaves an emotive and powerful tale of how the path to true love never runs smoothly and that following your dreams comes at a price as it explores the highs and lows of being in love and the pleasures and pains associated with it.
Making her Bollywood debut in the female lead after a successful run in Tamil Cinema is British actress and model Amy Jackson, who is also former Miss Liverpool, Miss Teen World, Miss Teen Great Britain, and Miss England runner up. The English starlet, who is making waves with her film career in India, stars opposite Bollywood heartthrob and youth icon Prateik Babbar (‘Dhobi Ghat’, ‘Dum Maaro Dum’, ‘Aarakshan’).
The entire film is a breath-taking combination of a story told through the eyes of the critically acclaimed Master Director Gautham Vasudev Menon set against the exotic backdrop of Kerala, Agra, Jaipur and Mumbai. The film is a reworking of Menon’s path-breaking Tamil screen hit, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. His other works include the Tamil blockbuster Khakha Khakha which was also reinterpreted in Bollywood for the Box Office hit, Force.
Ek Deewana Tha is offset by a simply outstanding and memorable composition by multi-Oscar winner, A.R. Rahman (‘Slumdog Millionaire’) with lyrics penned by India’s most popular and sought-after lyricist, Javed Akhtar.
