De De Pyaar De is a movie about age-inappropriate romance. The movie is helmed by editor-turned-filmmaker Akiv Ali and is written by Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety fame Luv Ranjan. Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet play the three leads in this urbane romcom, that also stars Jaaved Jaaferi, Jimmy Sheirgill and Alok Nath. Ajay Devgn has been doing quite well in the business of making people laugh, delivering two big hits recently in Golmaal Again and Total Dhamaal. So can he deliver another enjoyable, entertaining affair with De De Pyaar De? We are watching the film right now and here's what we think about the first half. De De Pyaar De: Is Ajay Devgn the King of Comedy? Here’s How His Last 10 Comic Movies Performed at the Box Office!

"Ajay Devgn plays a 50-year-old investor in London who meets the 26 yo Ayesha in a very awkward situation. Sparks fly, despite the age gap, or rather the generation gap, as Jaaved Jaaferi's psychologist friend tells the hero. So they indulge in a passionate affair. Ayesha doesn't mind the fact that Ashish, Ajay Devgn's character was once married and has two kids. When the relationship becomes serious, Ashish asks Ayesha to meet his family back home. And here's where things get seriously awkward for their young love story. Rakul Preet Singh Looked Effortlessly Chic Throughout the Promotions of De De Pyaar De - View Pics.

The first half is mostly about the so-called age-inappropriate romance between Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet's characters. The plush locales of London add a pretty hue to the love story, that has its moments but often feels stretched. The funny scenes aren't always hitting the bulls-eye, though a surprise cameo from a Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety actor is hilarious. Wish Ajay and Jaaved Jaaferi's scenes had been funnier, even though there was a lot of potential there. Towards the interval point arrives Tabu's character and suddenly we can feel the graph going high."
