EK DEEWANA THA is the story of Sachin, an engineer who has managed to complete his degree, but who is completely obsessed with the world of cinema and films. Hanging around at film sets, waiting outside directors’ offices and spending time with an assistant director-friend is what makes most of his days.And just when life was churning its monotonous cycle, Sachin and his family shift to a temporary home in Juhu and it is in this new place, that he sees ‘her’ for the first time. Jessie…It is love at first sight for Sachin. And when he finds out that she lives in the house upstairs, he leaves no chance to watch her, catch her attention or generally try to make conversation with her.
Jessie is a Malayalee Christian with strict orthodox parents. To make matters worse, she is also a year older to Sachin. All the odds seem stacked against him…And finally one day, when pushed into a corner, he confesses to her that he likes her…But Jessie is headstrong and refuses to accept that she has any feelings for him. She insists that they should be friends and that anything further would make life very difficult for her. And yet, she feels the need to meet him and talk to him. This is a love story-musical between the quintessential romantic Sachin and the confused yet headstrong Jessie, and the highs and lows of being in love and the pleasures/pains associated with it.
