Ek Haseena Thi .....lacks substance

Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha is the second go at launching of Shiv Darshan, son of veteran filmmaker, Suneel Darshan.

The junior Darshan made his debut with Karle Pyaar Karle (2014), a home production directed by Rajesh Pandey. The film did not work and, this time, Darshan takes it upon himself to give the junior another chance.

The theme of the film is not easy to fathom. The character played by Darshan jr was in love with a girl in an earlier birth. His wish not fulfilled, and therefore his soul (atma) is now all over. It turns out that the girl he loved earlier was a total lookalike of the character of Natasha Fernandez who owns a palatial house in Europe. It’s not a coincidence since Fernandez is the earlier one’s granddaughter.

Fernandez has plans to marry her childhood love, played by Upen Patel. But, Patel seems to have different plans altogether.

The film also discusses if the ghosts really exist? The conclusion is they don’t. So what is Darshan’s junior’s claim to being an ‘atma’ all about?

The film is an outcome of poor storyline which shows on the scripting. There is nothing of substance. In this event, despite his past records of successes, Suneel Darshan fails to do justice as the director. The directors’ favourite music director, Nadeem, is roped in to provide the music for this film but there is nothing in the songs that make them hummable.

The cinematography does justice to the beautiful Wales locations where the film was shot.

Despite being his second film, Shiv Darshan shows no improvement. Fernandez can’t act. Upen Patel is not known for histrionics.  Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deeewana Tha has nothing going for it.

Producer/ Director: Suneel Darshan.

Cast: Shiv Darshan, Natasha Fernandez and Upen Patel.
