Deewangee (Hindi: दीवानगी, English: Madness) is a 2002 Indian psychological thriller film directed by Anees Bazmee. This movie is loosely based on the 1996 Richard Gere movie Primal Fear. The film stars Ajay Devgan, Akshaye Khanna and Urmila Matondkar in leading roles. The film premiered on 25 October 2002. This was Devgan's first negative role.


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, Taran Bharadwaj (Ajay Devgan), 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 Taran's innocence, approaches Raj to defend him, which he accepts after meeting Taran.

Raj finds out that Taran suffers from split personality disorders and wins Taran's case by proving the same. Immediately after Taran is acquitted, Raj discovers that the split personality was an act put up by Taran. Raj wants to put Taran in prison by re-opening the case.
