Frothy Dazzle, genuine fun!
After 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety', we have got yet again an openly entertaining and non-preachy comedy with style, but like the last year release, this one doesn't completely lack in substance. And what's more, this 'women-are-bitches' soars, and IS entertaining.
De De Pyaar De, produced actually by Luv Ranjan and directe by Akiv Ali, actually feels like a Luv Ranjan directorial. Of course Akiv Ali hasn't done much to the ensemble star cast, but the film is still mindless, masala fun. It's good entertainment, even if its unhealthy. And it's an eye candy as well. Yes, Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety misogyny here as well, but you don't look up there when you are being given loads of laughs. I wished there was more romance and story-telling here, but then, you can't expect that from a Luv Ranjan film.
If candyfloss entertainment is something you consider and love (just like me!) give a shot and you'll leave happy shots! 3 out of 5 for '3DP'.
Apart from the ounces of good comedy, what De De Pyaar De (Give Me Some Love) does is bust the tabooed topic of sex in India. It reduces it to an activity involving physical contact, which is how it should be, regardless of its attachment to a relationship or matrimony. I personally did not think I would find so much depth in a film presented by Luv Ranjan and I need to hand it to director Akiv Ali for really taking the comic film in that route. The plot is as insane as it sounds and has a convoluted structure but you get that idea even from its poster, so can't blame anyone. Just looking at Devgn is funny enough for me, and I found Rakul Preet Singh a bit amateurish as the unruly character but I guess the script needed her to be. Overall, De De Pyaar De really gives you a lot of comedy to sit back at the end of a busy day and laugh at. TN.
