Why is Popcorn so essential while watching the movie? Why we eat popcorn while watching the movie? It’s just because popcorn is meant to just pass your time in an easy way, while you are relaxing in your comfortable chair simultaneously watching the movie. No matter how good is the movie, popcorn is meant to ease you, and gives you non-brainy entertainment. And no matter how the movie is bad also, it still comforts you, and gives non-brainy entertainment. This movie “Aisha”, directed by Rajshree Ojha, her first step into direction, has given us a one more film which can be called as a ‘Popcorn’ type.
It’s a sweet simple story based on the life of one sweet little girl whose name is “Aisha” (Sonam Kapoor). She is a totally blonde type of girl, who is very fashionable, very sweet in nature, loves to do social services, and acts like any other girl next door. She loves match-making job, and often does pairing between her circles. Now the here the story begins with lots of confusion and misunderstandings. There’s a friend of Aisha named Randhir (Cyrus), who likes her but Aisha ignores her. In one party Aisha met one “behenji” type of girl, Shefali (Amrita Puri) and thought that Shefali would be a nice pair with Randhir. Her intention was good but her response was not good, and then she started her match-making job. Arjun (Abhay Deol) was a childhood friend of Aisha, and they always fight with each other.
Now here the confusion starts; Aisha wanted to Shefali to be with Randhir, but Randhir liked Aisha. As the story moves on Shefali fell in love with her old good pal Saurabh (Anand Tiwari). Arjun was in love with Aisha, but Aisha thought there’s something going on between Arjun and her Secretary Aarti (Lisa Haydon). As the story still moves on further Aisha’s best friend Pinky (Ira Dubey) started liking Randhir. Then one new character arrives, Dhruv Singh (Arunoday Singh), who Arjun thought that Aisha likes Dhruv.
At the end it became some sweet-some bitter love story for the girl called “Aisha”
This whole confusion in the story finally comes to an end when the theatres lights were on after two and a half hour. But this confusion was very predictable to the audiences just after 15mins of the start of the movie, and so finally it was much essential for the audiences to buy a Popcorn basket for them. There was nothing new shown in the movie, it was the same old predictable love story of a girl who tries to match other pairs, but at the end finally getting tied and confused in her own love story.
Performance by Sonam was extremely appreciating. Her add on gorgeous looks and highly fascinating wardrobe was the cherry on the cake. Abhay Deol was as good as he is. His dialogue delivery was his plus point why people would like him in this film. Dialogues written for his character was very innovative, especially in the fights and argument sequences with him and Sonam. The rest of the characters had done perfectly well according to their characterization, especially Amrita Puri as Shefali and Cyrus as Randhir were likable.
1. Direction by Rajshree Ojha was pretty well done, and as per her first time it was indeed a good attempt, but please choose a better script next time.
2. All the Costumes by Perina Qureshi and Kunal Rawal were exceptionally beautiful.
3. Sonam’s attractive fine performance.
1. Good likable predictable story, but stretched very much.
2. Many of the boring dialogues will make you asleep, especially the last one speech by Sonam and Abhay.
3. All of the video songs were too prolonged, which makes you feel like eating more popcorn. (Except the last one)
It is surely a teeny age type of movie, and the college young crowds would surely enjoy this movie, as they were passing the funny comments during the entire movie behind my seats and were not only enjoying the movie, but also entertaining the rest of us the audiences. And as far as by my side, it is surely a Popcorn type of love story, but if you will eat continuously popcorn in the whole movie, it will highly cost you.
