The quirky drama cum comedy De De Pyaar De starring Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh, is out on the streaming platform. It is available on Hotstar Premium.
De De Pyar De comes from the brain of Luv Ranjan who has specialized in misogynistic bromance tales Pyar Ka Punchanama 1 & 2, and Sonu Ke Teetu Ki Sweety. Here the issue is the age gap between romance and what happens when the older person (Ajay Devgn) who is in love takes her lover (Rakul Preet Singh) to the ex-wife (Tabu). Tempers do fly under unique circumstances, but more than the comedy it is the drama in the second half that works here.
Among the three principal casts, it was senior actress Tabu who steals the show with her powerful act. She is the soul of the movie, which takes off with her arrival. Akiv Ali, a former assistant to Luv Ranjan, has directed the film.
If you haven’t watched it yet, De De Pyaar De is a good binge-watching material. Theatrically, it was a success with collections just about managing to touch 100 Cr Nett mark. It also meant Ajay Devgn had two back to back 100 Cr Nett.
