Overtimes in the Hindi film industry, Luv Ranjan became popular for his misogyny, through the rant of Kartik Aaryan. His latest production, ‘De De Pyaar De’ however, made us look at the uncomfortable sides of love, marriage, relationship, divorce and of course, age-difference in a relationship. Comically, they use examples of real-life couples like Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, George Clooney and Amal Clooney, to highlight that age difference isn’t the worst thing about a relationship, but convincing the family, is a real task.
Ajay Devgn’s latest hit film, ‘De De Pyaar De’ wasn’t only about a 50-something man falling in love with a 20-something woman, but much more. There’s a non-divorced, separated wife, who refuses to let go that she has aged gracefully, there’s the bright young girlfriend not ready to lose, there’s a daughter who has lied to the entire world about the existence of her father, and there’s this son who has slightly started crushing on his father’s girlfriend. The parents, however, are the least of the problems, and their presence is only comic relief.
‘De De Pyaar De’ is a movie which explores why divorce is sometimes the better option than a failed marriage certificate, strained parental relationships, and the unnecessary complications which arrive in our lives.
‘De De Pyaar De’ is available on Hotstar.
