Humko Deewana Kar Gaye is yet another meaningless Bollywood excursion into mediocrity.

After trying really hard to like something about this silly love story, all we could come up with was a fine performance, as usual, by Akshay Kumar.

As for the other key elements of this film - the story, music, photography, etc - it's hard to say which is more pedestrian than the other.

Katrina Kaif's acting is so wooden in Humko Deewana Kar Gaye that one is tempted to believe that even Amisha Patel does a better job in her movies. Katrina lacks the passion and emotional intensity that her peers like Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Urmila Matondkar and Vidya Balan pack into their roles.

Automobile engineer Aditya Malhotra (Akshay Kumar) is engaged to fashion designer Sonia (Bipasha Basu), who's totally engrossed with her career.

After the engagement, Aditya is sent to Canada on work to learn more about a new car scheduled for launch in India while Sonia simultaneously heads to Paris for a show.

In Canada, Aditya accidentally bumps into Jia Yashwardhan (Katrina Kaif), daughter of business magnate Yashwardhan, and then bumps into her again and again in a quirk of destiny. Jia is shopping in Canada for her upcoming wedding to business tycoon Karan Oberoi (Anil Kapoor).

Soon, Aditya and Jia's coincidental encounters turn into constant meetings as they fall for each other unmindful of their engagements to other people. They find in each other a soul mate and common tastes that they don't see in the persons they are engaged to. Jia is also happy in the company of Aditya's sister Simran (played by Bhagyashree of Maine Pyar Kiya fame), who lives in Canada.

However, a misunderstanding crops up between the two and an upset Jia returns to India for her wedding with Karan. But destiny plays its strange hand yet again and Aditya and Jia meet on the day of her wedding.

The climax scenes following Jia's marriage to Karan and her subsequent trapped presence in a car that's about to burst into flames are so crude that it's difficult to comprehend this film even has a director.

The songs are a let down as well. None of the songs are anything to write home about.

Bipasha Basu doesn't have much of a role.

Humko Deewana Kar Gaye is a melancholic reminder of the poverty of fresh ideas that continues to plague Bollywood. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
