Aashiqui 2 Reviews
Once the lovers come together, and the first act is over, why does everything slide? This Aashiqui 2 holds out promise, but doesn't make the most of it.
The film, however, never becomes more than the sum of its parts. Aashiqui 2 falls into that lukewarm category of 'I didn't mind it,' which is not the same as 'I liked it.' It could have been so much more.
As I see it, what probably started as an interesting story idea -- troubled artists, dynamics in a relationship -- eventually got buried under the debris of random motifs from previous hits delivered by the Bhatt camp.
Fluffy and flaky, Aashiqui 2 is simply not peppy enough to paper over its cracks. It does not strike any chords. There aren't too many highs in its hackneyed saga of songs and sighs.
This could be good soup for the lovers' soul - with a dash of old-world flavour.
Aashiqui 2 is a sermon on alcoholism. Faintly trying to revive a dead script with soothing music and appealing chemistry, the film has a hasty and unpredictable wrap up which kills its tempo. A stone faced actress and a perpetually stoned protagonist do to the film irreparable damage. Novice Aditya Roy Kapur’s fiercely strong efforts are the only consistent bits of the film, despite a hollow premise. I am assigning a 2/5 for Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2. If you have the appetite for romance, this is an apt palette or else it could easily be missed.
On the whole, AASHIQUI 2 brings romance back on the Hindi screen -- intense, pure, selfless and heart wrenching. A stirring account with brilliant moments, bravura performances, strong emotional quotient and addictive music, this one's an absolute must watch for the romantics.
Audience Reviews for Aashiqui 2
'Aashiqui 2' works because it has an unmatchable male lead who cannot be replaced. As the male lover, Aditya Roy Kapoor's performance is passionate and absolutely comforting, even of the terribly written female lead (played by Shraddha Kapoor) is lackluster as a heroine- she is shining and her performance is good in the first half, but still she is undeniably under the jacket. The film is alsonaffected by the melodrama, which sucks out the originality of the film as an Indian take on 'A Star is Born'. But it still works because the music is as touching as 'Aashiqui'. Arijit Singh is a true star!
The film is a very contrived, mainstream Hindi feature where there are two people who romance each other. But the writing is not weak, and so isn't the direction.
Many Positives In The Film, The Big Negative Is The Story Isn't That Good, Direction And Acting Of The Two Leads Are Avg Too..
I have not seen Ashiqui so I can’t compare Ashiqui 2 with Ashiqui but one thing is sure that Ashiqui 2 is no-nonsense, sincere romantic drama. I think this is the best from Mohit Suri so far. Aditya Roy Kapoor has good screen presence; there is something edgy about him so he looks perfect for this kind of role where he need not to do any conventional stuff. Shraddha Kapoor looks beautiful and makes a good pair with Aditya. A bollywood romance can’t be without music so here you have an array of soulful numbers easily mixed up with narrative. The story is not something fresh even it can remind you of old classic Abhimaan but movie scores in its treatment and with an end which leaves you with mixed feeling. Overall, a satisfying movie to watch any day.
Great movie... musical hit... Good actors...
