After the success of Aashiqui, the rumors that the sequel would surpass the original film were rampant but what we saw at the theater was the exact opposite. There is no similarity it shares with the main film except for the title. In fact, this movie seemed to be a rip off from the old Amitabh starrer Abhimaan without the emotional or action content.
Rahul Jaykar (Aditya Roy Kapur) is a hearth trob and a prodigy at singing and is in love with Aarohi (Shraddha Kapoor) who sings mellifluously at local joints while trying to be a big name in the music universe. Rahul who already has earned a name trains Aarohi and helps her towards her dream. Arranging auditions and teaching her tricks of the trade they start getting closer and closer. Aashiqui 2 Movie Review
Tables are turned when Aarohi earns a name as a big star. Rahul's career path starts waning away. Is love is more important than career? Aarohi has to make sacrifices to keep up her love life. Their efforts make the rest of the story.
The movie is hardly something to expect excellence from but Aditya Roy Kapoor is the magic element. Not only is he handsome, but also his skills of action are great. This is nothing new to us with his performances in Guzaarish, Action Replayy and London Dreams. Glam doll Shraddha Kapoor has to learn that looks only don't matter anymore.
Mohit Suri has done a decent yet insufficient job in directing the movie which had a threadbare plot that is munificent in its platitude. Music is another point where the movie scores. Tum Hi Ho has been smooth as honey. 'Bhula Dena', 'Sunn Raha Hai' are other songs worth a mention. Composition is great, Kudos to Mithoon, Jeet Ganguly and Ankit Tiwari.
Plot of the movie is just average but the climax is what waters the movie down. There is no punch to build any drama in the movie. You lose nothing if you haven't got a ticket to this movie or if you are busy browsing facebook at your office.
