Aashiqui2 is a soulfully mushy movie that can melt your heart with sufi treatment and Bhatt’s signature style of movie making.Mohit Suri has a gift of portraying myarid of emotions through his movies.Aditya Roy Kapur aka Rahul is a maniac bipolar depressant who exactly displays the traits of a chronic depressant.Who at a subconscious level has something unresolved that he’s not even willing to figure out until he meets Aarohi.Though some of the dialouges are hackneyed,you’ll be ready to ignore them all to be soaked in the beauty of innocene of love limned.Maniac depressants have hyper mood swings.Sometimes even true,sincere love might just not be enough to resolve something that so deeply settled inside that pain pe se becomes a comforting company for a lifetime and beyond life.
Not the regular run of the mill story.Auidence might not be able to understand his sudden urge to giveup on life.These folks are unpredictable.You never know what might just trigger them to take an extreme step.I’m glad there’s a realistic approach to the story instead of happy ending.Cause thats how the relation with a manic depressant ends,it ends!
Music is addictive,yet another signature style of Bhatts.They make evergreen music for their movies.Even a metalhead like me finds it addictive,esp the ‘tum hi ho’ number.
Aditya roy Kapur’s acting is stupendous for a debutant main lead and very very convincing , distinctive and original.On the contrary Shraddha Kapoor though shares a wonderful on-screen chemistry with Aditya Roy Kapoor,her acting still needs a major polishing.
That said..Its a more than one time watch kind of a movie.Esp again sensuality and erotica which is also Bhatt’s signature style is pleasantly missing.Its good to see movies can still have the emotional stamina and will to believe to contour pristine quality of love.
Mahesh Bhat’s-Mohit Suri has always produced wonderful cinematic works.Aashiqui being an evergreen classic masterpiece then and now and so is Aashiqui2 with semi-modern approach.
Tum hi ho
