Bollywood movie Deewane Huye Pagal featuring Akshay Kumar, Rimi Sen and others is apparently copied from a hollywood flick There’s Something About Marry.
Not a sizeable chunk of fans knows about the concept of the movie allegedly taken from the Hollywood movie.
There’s Something About Mary (1998) has Ted, a geek trying to trace his high school sweetheart Mary and hires a detective who, along with several others end up falling for Mary.
Deewane Huye Paagal (2005) has the baby faced Shahid Kapoor portraying a nerd trying to find his love Tanya/ Natasha/ mind numbingly tedious Rimi Sen, and has many rivals like Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and many others trying to woo her.
While There’s Something About Mary has an impeccable comic timing, witty dialogues, amazing screenplay and even superior direction, the same cannot be said for its rip off which is a combination of silly jokes, sillier characters and mediocre direction.
If you need an example of how something extraordinarily good can be ripped to shreds of something excruciatingly painful, Deewane Huye Paagal perfectly fits the bill.
