Aisha – review
A rich, care-free Delhi girl who zips the town in her yellow Beetle car, sports trendy designer labels, parties hard, wears pretty hats for the Sunday polo matches and yes, also visits poor animal rights centre like a perfect rich-socialite thinks she is good at conjuring up hearts together and thinks match making as social service. Between all these, she and her best friend the petite Pinky (Iris Dubey) thinks they may have to be single forever. A whole khandan in designer dresses – papa, mausi, chacha, didi, jiju, jiju’s brother, jiju’s new beta, chacha’s son from first marriage, a distant cousin from Haryana, a rich heir who is in love with Aisha makes the life complete in Aisha’s world. Who is the hero in this inner coterie? Its Jiju’s brother, Arjun Burman (Abhay Deol) who also happens to be childhood friend of Aisha and who is at constant loggerheads with Aisha. Arjun is against Aisha’s way of interfering in others life and cooking their life. Meanwhile he dates his NRI colleague and friend Aarti (Lisa Haydon). In a sea of events unfolding partly in an expected manner, Aisha discovers her fault line and finds her true love calling in a Romeo Juliet way.
Aisha is like Page 3. All glitz glamour and high society. There is nothing middle class about the movie, saving Anand Tiwari who appears as Saurabh who has a huge crush over Shefali (Amrita Puri), the distant cousin of Aisha. The movie could have been very well a brand ambassador for many a high fashion items in India.
Music composed by Amit Trivedi is a big plus point and so is the cinematography. Aisha is producer papa Anil Kapoor’s gift to his beti. The movie revolves around Sonam, her world and her choice with all the designer labels to accompany.
GingerChai Verdict: When I watched the movie, I was the only guy in the entire row flanked by rows of giggling girls – that says it all. Aisha is a sweet movie, though not perfect but will definitely make you smile. Makes a good popcorn time for this weekend.
