Director: Rajshri Ojha
Star Cast: Abhay Deol, Sonam Kapoor, Arunoday Singh, Ira Dubey, Cyrus Shahukar, Amrita Puri, Lisa Haydon.
‘Aisha’ is a romantic comedy based on Jane Austen’s Emma. Aisha is a posh girl from Delhi who is classy,bubbly and very much modern. She also loves match-making and calls it ‘social service’. This movie is perfect for the energetic young generation as the flick has superb aesthetic looks and extraordinarily stylish characters.
Aisha (Sonam Kapoor) comes across a plain-Jane, behenji type girl Shefali (Amrita Puri) and this gal becomes Aisha’s next social service mission. She feels that it is her responsibility to find a suitor for her and so she gives Shefali a total makeover and Shefali gets a chain of suitors after that. Then, we have the handsome and sweet Arjun Burman (Abhay Doel) who is Aisha’s childhood buddy who tries to make Aisha realize that love cannot be forced by match making. Aisha also has a showy best friend Pinky Bose (Ira Dubey) and Randhir Gambhir (Cyrus Sahukar) plays the character of a Delhi boy. This flick is for the youth of today who are stylish and open minded.
The movie is so much lively and bright with fashion and style brimming everywhere. Costume designer Kunal Rawal and stylist Pernia Qureshi did an awesome job bringing life to the characters with style that can make all style freaks awestruck. The hot chicks and the well dressed hunks are eye candies which can take us to a stylish wonder land which doesn’t actually exist in Delhi.
Sonam Kapoor brings justice to Jane Austen’s Emma as she is a word-to-word transformation of the character from the book. The performances by all the actors are just too good and Sonam introduced a whole new dimension of herself with this flick. This movie is quite different from her earlier flicks which couldn’t do much in the box office and ‘Aisha’ is all set to cover-up her past flops. Debutante Amrita Puri also gave an outstanding performance setting a challenge for all new comers. Abhay was just perfect for the role. His style, his looks and his acting all was ideal.
The music of the movie is quite appreciable which has been composed by Amit Trivedi. Sonam’s little sister Rhea Kapoor produced the flick with Sanjeev K. Bijli and Ajay Bijli. The lyrics have been penned down by Javed Akhtar and the movie has been directed by debutant Rajshri Ojha.
