Sonam Kapoor stars as South Delhi-bred spoilt brat Aisha, who looks like she's stepped straight out of the pages of Vogue. With her best friend, the equally vacuous Pinky (played by Ira Dubey), she spends her days maxing out her father's credit card at fancy designer boutiques, and attending polo matches with the Capital's swish set.
When her matchmaking designs on her new 'behenji' friend Shefali and the bumbling mithai-shop heir Randhir go awry, Aisha is forced to rethink her idea of love, and whether it can be arranged after all.
Abhay Deol as Arjun, her sister's annoying brother-in-law often tries to stop Aisha from interfering in other people's lives. But to complicate things further, a hunky childhood friend, and Arjun's smokin' hot colleague jump into the fray. Soon Aisha has to swallow the fact that she can't control love, especially when it finally hits her.
A mish-mash of Clueless and the risqué American TV show Gossip Girl, this film unfortunately lacks the wit of the former and the edginess of the latter. Yet during the first half of Aisha, this combination is refreshing. The film is good-looking, it smacks of a certain bubble set in Delhi, and the dialogue (peppered as it is with countless 'whatevers') has still got bounce. It's not hard to warm up to the characters initially, to even have a little fun at the endless row of parties that seem to make up Aisha's social whirl. But there is such a thing as too much partying, and Aisha's gang never seems to grow up to any real-life emotions.
