'Well begin is half done" goes a saying. There is a good reason why
many filmmakers don"t wish to read the opinion of the critics but
it is something they just can"t ignore. Because reviews determine
the opening of films if not the final outcome. Unfortunately, the
much-hyped film Aisha has got mixed response from the
critics. Some gave good reviews while others gave not so favourable
Critics are of the the opinion that it is slow in the first half
which tests the patience of the viewers. “ Aisha gets
painfully slow in some portions. Besides, it lacks the depth of
passion and that could be because the makers were trying to make
something lighter and breezier. Sweeping the minor complaints
aside, Aisha is watchable for two factors mainly: Neat
performances, especially by Sonam Kapoor and Amit Trivedi"s super
musical score," wrote well known film critic Taran Adarsh.
“Aisha holds appeal for the youth mainly and there"s a
strong likelihood that this segment of movie-going audience will
fall for its charms," he added. He is all prase for lead heroine
Sonam Kapoor and other co-actors for their performances.
Aisha is a modern day adaptation of the British novel,
Emma by Jane Austen. It is about a girl who thinks everyone's
business is her business. She makes sure everyone acts according to
her dictates. Then emerges a boy, who tries to get her out of the
mess. Who succeeds and who fails form the rest of the story.
The film is produced by Sonam's sister Rhea Kapoor and directed
by Rajshree Ojha and features actors like Abhay Deol, Cyrus
Sahukar, Ira Dubey and Amrita Puri. It has hit the theatres
yesterday, August 6.
