Deewangee (English: Obsession) is a 2002 Indian psychological thriller film directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Nitin Manmohan. The film stars Akshaye Khanna, Ajay Devgn and Urmila Matondkar in lead roles. The music is composed by Ismail Darbar while the lyrics are penned by Salim Bijnori and Nusrat Badr.

Plot[edit]

Raj Goyal (Akshaye Khanna), a young and successful criminal lawyer, famous for never having lost a case, is introduced to popular singer Sargam (Urmila Matondkar) by music magnate Ashwin Mehta (Vijayendra Ghatge). The following day, Ashwin is brutally murdered in his own house. The murderer, Tarang Bharadwaj (Ajay Devgn), who is Sargam's childhood friend and current mentor, is caught red-handed at the crime scene. He claims he is innocent and Sargam, who believes in Tarang's innocence, approaches Raj to defend him, which he accepts after meeting Tarang.

Suspecting him to have a mental illness, he hires a psychiatrist to study his case. The psychiatrist finds out that Tarang has split personality disorder, and his other personality goes by the name of Ranjeet.

Meanwhile, Raj and Sargam grow closer due to their frequent meetings and eventually fall in love and confess it to each other.

Raj speaks to Ranjeet, who is a complete opposite of the innocent and simple Tarang, and he admits to killing Ashwin because, on the night of the party, Ashwin had tried to molest Sargam. Ranjeet sees Tarang as his younger brother who in turn considers Sargam his wife.

Bringing his split personality in front of the court, Raj is able to win the case and free Tarang. But right after he is acquitted, Raj finds out that the split personality disorder was an act put up by Tarang to get out of jail.

Raj tries to reopen the case but fails, and Tarang is moved to the mental hospital for a few days before his release for his treatment. Raj elongates his stay in the mental hospital by proving that he is still sick and needs more treatment. Tarang is able to wriggle out of Raj’s attempt and is released.

Raj appoints personal security for Sargam to ensure her safety, while Tarang relentlessly tries to reach her, during which he seriously injures Yana, Sargam’s assistant.

During one of Sargam’s shows, Tarang disguises himself as her driver and kidnaps her and takes her to an old fort. Sargam gives her location secretly to Raj who rushes in time and a fight ensues which ends with Raj shooting Tarang multiple times and he falls into a nearby river.

The next morning the police are unsuccessful in finding his body.

The movie ends on a suspenseful note, where Sargam and Raj are enjoying a vacation and they hear someone sing one of Tarang’s famous songs. Raj believes it cannot be Tarang, and the movie closes with this unanswered question.
