Here is good news for Sonam Kapoor fans, who think that she had run out of luck in Saawariya and Delhi-6 in spite of her good performance. She did proved them right with her last release I Hate Luv Storys turning a hit. Her fans will have good time again watching her on the big screen, as Aisha has been released.
The count down for what is touted as Bollywood’s most fashionable film – Aisha – has begun.
“Film Aisha is sure to open eyes to the talent of its leading lady Sonam Kapoor, who gives face, form and expression to Aisha. She displays the essential characteristic of an actress who has the ability to shift quickly and effectively from one emotion to another. She can cry, look wistful and deliver a biting line with equal believability”
Sonam Kapoor plays Aisha who is the quintessentially girly girl of a rich father in Delhi. So, her wardrobe has dresses galore, bows, pearls, hair accessories set off with a combination of delicious pastel colours.Aisha (Sonam Kapoor) is a sassy Delhi dame who believes she is the best matchmaker in town.Sonam graduated with political science and economics as her majors, and is fluent in English, Hindi, and Punjabi.
With friend Pinky (Ira Dubey), she plans to hook up her new bucolic buddy Shefali (Amrita Puri) with common friend Randhir (Cyrus Sahukar). When things don’t work out, she tries to set Shefali up with another friend Dhruv (Arunoday Singh) until Shefali falls for Arjun Burman (Abhay Deol). So far so good but like in all average love stories Arjun happens to be Aisha’s childhood friend! And abruptly Aisha’s heart starts beating for Arjun.
On the upside, the film is blessed with a brilliant musical score by Amit Trivedi (of Dev.D fame). Also Trivedi’s treatment to the background score is refreshingly different and aptly complements the flavour of the film. The styling by Kunal Rawal and Pernia Qureshi is uber-cool and trendy. Cinematographer Diego Rodriguez imparts colourful richness to the frames. Dialogues by Manu Rishi and Ritu Bhatia are funny at instances but the climactic romantic discourse sounds verbose.
The romantic chemistry between Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol seems nonexistent. You acknowledge them as good friends as the film starts but never realize when cupid has struck in the climax. The jealousy pangs that arouse adoration in Aisha’s mind are conspicuously absent. As a result, you don’t relate to her turmoil.
“A beautiful body but a shallow soul’ is what qualifies for, both, Aisha – the character as well as Aisha – the film.”
