    Not A Love Story rating: 8 out of 10(Prabhleen Fan wrote on 23 Aug 2011)

    With a compelling desire to be an actress, Anusha Chawla ( Mahie Gill ) comes to Mumbai, which is not very well recieved by her boyfriend Robin ( Deepak Dobriyal ). After multiple auditions and failures, she feels distressed but thats somethng which every to-be-actor has to deal with. She doesn not give up as she beleives in making her destiny on her own. That is the basis of the film which leads to a gruesome scenario wherein Ashish Bhatnagar ( Ajay Gehi ) , who signed Anusha for a film, gets killed.
    Ram Gopal Verma has truly emerged with flying colors as a film maker. Although his camera positions would make you go round-and-round, he still manages to hold its viewers close to reality. Especially the murder and after-murder scenes have been dealt with such an absolute sensibility that an experienced film-maker only can do. It will make you believe in the story and the characters.
    With almost everything being known to the audience, the reason for which one must watch the film is that it is definitely not a loosely-made film residing merely on the thrill factor. It has something more to it. Instead of focussing on the high drama over murder, RGV opted to throw lights on the psychological aspects of the story.
    Performance-wise, Mahie Gill was just so stunning in her performance that you will forget the real Maria for sure. Just watch her in the scenes when she shuts her ears while Robin cuts Ashish's body into pieces and when she is called up for questioning by the inspector dealing with the case. Deepak does well to maintain the image of a very wild and possessive lover throughout the film. Although, he could have done it with a little more variations on his face. Ajay played a very sweet character of a producer. Much to the releif of the audience and relatives of Neeraj Grover, the character of Ajay was shown innocent and lovable. Debutant Prabhleen Sandhu as Anju was another character to look out for. She plays Anusha's friend and a struggling actress. In all the scnenes that she got, she was utterly natural and expressive. This young talent would definitely get noticed by the critics.
    Overall, the movie was a zoom-in to a real life incident, that would keep you gripped to it for most of the time. Although, the movie would be appealing to a comparatively smaller audience for its unconventional attempts at the storyline, camera works and most importantly, its climax.
    But as is said for this film, IT IS NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED ONES!!!
