Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon Hindi Movie Review

Feature Film
May 5, 2003 By Ajay S

MPKDH runs for over three hours; the actual story could have been told one hour flat. The film sinks under the weight of its ordinate length - and two much prem. Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor seem to believe that being over the top is a top idea. So they ham so much that it leaves the audience grunting in pain. The twosome delivers what must surely rank as the worst pair of performances one has ever seen in a Rajshri film.

Ironically, it is the weakest and least prominent of the lead actors, Abhishek Bachchan, who makes the biggest impact. That perhaps has something to do with the fact that he, being the third angle of a messy triangle, is given the least number of lines to speak. But even a shoddy script replete with stale ideas and corny dialogues cannot keep Pankaj Kapur down. He rises above the banality of the film, but that's all he can do because MPKDH is a clear case of much ado over nothingness.
