The second movie to release this season with an extra K in its title [after Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu], stars newcomer Amy Jackson romancing Prateik Babbar in his first lead role movie. It also marks the return of director Gautham Menon to Bollywood, after Rehna Hai Tere Dil Main. But seems like the director is trying every trick in the book to keep this interesting.
A remake of Menon’s own Tamil hit movie – Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, which was also remade in Telugu as Ye Maaye Chesaave, Ekk Deewana Tha will be released with the two different endings. Whether these endings are going to be similar to the Tamil and Telugu versions, is left to be seen. But how is that going to work? Will audiences have to rewatch a different version of the movie all over again, just for the climax? Or, would they need to choose beforehand – happy, or sad ending?
Whatever the strategy that Menon is trying to implement, it looks like it might have given away quite a bit about the movie, even before its release. There is a good chunk of people who haven’t seen the original Tamil/Telugu movie, and this move could potentially backfire. Or will Gautham Menon come up with two completely new endings? What do you say?
