Aashiq Banaya Aapne review
'Aashiq Banaya Aapne' StaleBy Nitika Desai
Film critic, ApunKaChoice.Com
Watching Aashiq Banaya Aapne is like being served a stale meal. The film is a love-triangle between two guys who vie for the same girl. The director, Aaditya Datt, has put a twist in the tale at the story’s end. But this twist is not the least convincing, owing partly to the poorly written climax and partly to actor Sonu Sood’s bland performance.
To say the least, the movie doesn’t stir any emotion inside you, except exasperation at times. The script is shoddily penned, the dialogues just not believable.
The film tells the story of three young people. Karan (Sonu Sood) is an introvert who cannot muster courage to express his romantic feelings to Sneha (Tanushree Dutta), his college-mate.
At a party, Sneha gets introduced to Karan’s friend Vicky (Emraan Hashmi) who is quite an outspoken person and immediately strikes a common chord with her.
Sparks between Sneha and Vicky further grow after he joins her college.
Meanwhile, the quiet Karan feels sidelined. Knowing Vicky’s flirtatious nature, he tries to talk him out of his relationship with Sneha, but Vicky assures him that he is in love with Sneha. Karan feels he has lost the only woman he has ever loved.
But then certain incidents transpire in Vicky’s life that break Sneha’s trust in him. She returns to Karan to seek emotional support in her time of pain. A relieved Karan finally proposes her and the two decide to get engaged. But before this love story reaches its conclusion, Vicky returns. And that one night spent with him changes their lives forever.
Aashiq Banaya Aapne has all the usual stereotypes that are to be found in any mediocre Bollywood movie. There is puerile romance with no chemistry between lovers, there is skin show, there is an underhand ploy and a shocker at the fag end. But nothing manages to redeem this movie.
Emraan Hashmi, who has quite a reputation for playing Casanova-like roles, has neither the looks nor the intensity. Even the serious, brooding expressions that he sometimes gives reek of superfluity. Although his performance is definitely better than Sonu Sood’s, Emraan has a particular appeal among the frontbenchers who hooted loudly when his opening shot came.
Tanushree Dutta looks easy and comfortable in her debut. She does need to work on her diction. She has the sex appeal, though not the killer looks. Sonu Sood is plain expressionless.
All in all, Aashiq Banaya Aapne is a lackluster fare that fails to keep the audience interest. The movie has glaring flaws – its beaten-to-death story and shoddy script being the most prominent. The movie is a waste of precious celluloid. On our part, it is a waste of time, effort and money.
Worth a miss.
