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.
