Here’s the trailer of Ek Deewana Tha, the much awaited Hindi Remake of Gautham Menon’s Tamil Film Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa ( VTV ). VTV which was both critically and commercially successful was also remade into Telugu with a different climax ( Ye Maaye Chesaave ) with Naga Chaitanya and Samantha .This movie also marked collaboration of A.R.Rahman and Gautham Menon for first time and OST of the movie is still popular down south.
Going by visuals shown in the Promo, it seems faithful to the original and the only difference I saw was a love making scene. It is also surprising they have retained Aromale, which was a Malayalam song in both the previous versions.
Considering Gautham’s hindi debut Rehna Hai Tera Dil Main, did not do well at B.O, but has gone on to do extremely well in T.V. and Video circuit, and with ARR’S music along with Prateik this is a film to look forward to.
