    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.
