De De Pyaar De Movie Review, Romantic comedy and Perfect Family Entertaining, Romantic comedy De De Pyaar De directed by Akiv Ali starring Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh barely works as an age-gap saga but is more effective as a comedy about moving on and finding new soul mates, says Scroll. The writers heavily pad up material that is just about enough for an extended sitcom episode with songs (too many and all of them distractions), uneven comedy and needless melodrama. However, De De Pyaar De’s biggest achievement is that it might actually compel filmmakers to ask whether their leads are appropriately matched wrinkle for wrinkle rather than forcing chronological acrobatics on viewers.
Akiv Ali’s movie might have been truly radical if Devgn’s character wasn’t a successful and youthful investment banker in London who boxes in his spare time, has a ridiculously toned body (which is displayed at least twice) and every quality associated with a young man in the throes of young love.
Cast: Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Rakul Preet Singh
Director: Akiv Ali
De De Pyaar De, given its central premise, would probably score dismally in the Bechdel test a test that requires that a film must showcase two women who must talk to each other about something other than a man. But, where it takes a leap forward is in the fact that neither of the two women Manju or Ayesha are wilting lilies. They spar with each other with a feistiness that makes the scenes come alive. For a change, it is the women who save the day.
The film, packed with humor and competent performances is likely to get much love from the audiences who have had their fill of patriotic chronicles.
