The movie is a remake of Gautham Menon's own Tamil movie, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. The plot revolves around the love story of Sachin (Prateik Babbar), a mechanical engineering student, and Jessie (Amy Jackson), an aspiring actress.
Sachin is a young and passionate engineering student who is obsessed with making movies. He dreams of becoming a filmmaker one day and making a film that will be remembered forever. One day, he meets Jessie, a beautiful and confident girl who aspires to become an actress. Jessie and Sachin fall in love and their love story takes off with Sachin's persistence.
However, Jessie's father (Sachin Khedekar) is against their relationship as Sachin is from a different religion and caste than Jessie. Sachin relentlessly pursues Jessie but she is hesitant because of her father's disapproval. Despite the obstacles, they continue to meet and fall deeper in love.
As their relationship progresses, Sachin decides to pursue his filmmaking dreams in Mumbai, leaving Jessie behind in Chennai. Jessie is disheartened, but Sachin promises to return soon and make a film that will make her proud. In Mumbai, Sachin struggles to make ends meet and to find a breakthrough in the film industry. But he eventually gets an opportunity to work as an assistant director to a famous director, which he accepts.
During his time in Mumbai, Sachin realizes that he misses Jessie and visits her in Chennai. But Jessie is getting married to her father's choice, forcing Sachin to regret losing her. Sachin tries to stop the wedding to no avail, but on his way back to Mumbai he realizes that he has a chance to prove himself and create a movie that will capture his and Jessie's love story.
With renewed determination and his friends' help, Sachin goes about making his first movie. His film, "Jessie," captures their love story and is a success. Sachin's moment comes, and he gets the opportunity to present the movie to his father-in-law at the office. Sachin pleads with him one last time, leaving the final decision in his hand whether to accept Sachin's love or not. The film ends on this poignant note, with Jessie's hand still unclaimed.
Ekk Deewana Tha is an endearing portrayal of first love and the challenges it tests us with. Prateik's performance as Sachin is sincere and heartfelt, and Amy Jackson's doe-eyed innocence encapsulates Jessie's character. The movie strikes a chord with audiences' aspirations and their romantic dreams. Its cinematography, music, and dialogues create a timeless feel, and its themes of pursuing one's passions despite challenges, the joys of young love, and the tension of social obstacles make it worth a watch.
