Deewane Huye Paagal is yet another addition to the list of likeable Bollywood comedies this year. The movie has an interesting story, hilarious characters and funny situations aplenty. The humour, primarily kitschy, works quite well.

Deewane Hue Pagal is the second successful coming of the team that gave us Awara Paagal Deewana . Producer Firoz Nadiadwala, director Vikram Bhatt, and actors Akshay Kumar , Sunil Shetty , Paresh Rawal and Johnny Lever once again come up with an entertaining film that sends you back home with a broad smile on the face.

Rimi Sen is the movie's heroine. Shahid Kapur plays a loverboy.

The film begins with the campus romance between Karan (Shahid Kapur) and Tanya (Rimi Sen). Karan is absolutely enamoured with Tanya, but she leaves the country after she accidentally witnesses the murder of a scientist.

The killed scientist (Om Puri) had the codeword to a secret formula that makes a person younger. The scientist's twin brother (Om Puri, again) is a don who is searching desperately for the code to the formula.

The code is with Tanya, but she is not aware of it.

Even after a long separation, Karan is unable to forget Tanya. Inspired by his boss cum friend Murugan (Johnny Lever) he decides to find her out. He discovers that she is in Dubai and hires an investigator named Rocky (Akshay Kumar) to trace her.

In Dubai, Rocky succeeds in finding Tanya. She has changed her name to Natasha. But the flamboyant investigator in turn loses his own heart to her the minute he sees her. So he cooks up a story to Karan that Tanya is now a widow with several children.

But there are more wannabes for Tanya/Natasha's love. There is the disabled Sanjay (Sunil Shetty) who wears a sorry expression on his face all the time and pretends his handicap to win her love. There is the confused Tommy (Paresh Rawal) who shams the loss of his memory.

The three contenders for Tanya's love try to outfox each other in every possible way. In the meantime, Karan too comes to Dubai. The chaos and mayhem reaches a new high when the don's men also arrive on the scene to search for the formula's codeword.

Deewane Huye Paagal is a hearty entertainer that brings about a right balance between fun, romance and action.

Akshay Kumar once again proves his mettle when it comes to tickling the funny bone. His comic sense and timing seems to be getting better with every film.

Shahid Kapur plays a lover boy to the hilt. There is not much humour coming forth from the young actor. He underplays his character and enacts a Romeo with conviction. Sunil Shetty's comedy in this movie is more because of his body language than his dialogues.

Paresh Rawal, as usual, is funny in his act. His sequence with Sunil Shetty - when the two are at the shooting of a music video - is truly hilarious.

Rimi Sen plays her part well, but needs to be presented more beautifully. Some of her dresses in the movie are simply dull.

In short, Deewane Huye Paagal is a fun to watch. The humour in the movie is slapstick, but it is churned out of funny situations and the game of up-manship that the characters in the movie play.
