Aashiqui (Do Number) is about a rise and fall of voice between the lovers. It is like Keith Urban losing his edge for Kree Harrison to convince she is the winner but not Candice Glover. The movie concept is loosely based on Charles Chaplin’s Limelight.
So there is a sharaabi Rockstar JJ, oops I mean RJ (Rahul Joker), who is losing grip on his sensational singing career, losing the audience, losing fans but gaining the attention of a bar singer Arohi. He falls in love with her while drunk, and his brain is too alive in the morning to remember he has to release her from bar manager to start a new singing career he has promised to help her.
Then is understood what is gonna happen next. Rahul makes her successful, she signs a contract with his uncle’s T-Series. More typical scenes are obviously expected to follow, she gets nominated on her first musical awards night and supriiiissseeeee!!! guess who wins??? obviously who else then Arohi. Then jotshi baba Mr. Happy Banana of Delhi Belly predicts the turnout of careers of both lovers.
Then the reversal of fortunes like Priyanka-Kangana’s Fashion as Arohi’s career touch heights and Rahul suffers serious downfall but Devdasful commitment with daaru remains fix. Their relation fluctuates with time.
A pretty ordinary script with less-then-average performances. Aditya-Shraddha as Rahul-Arohi don’t even look a charming on-screen chemistry altogether, their acting is like a premature student put on test in medical exams. A mouth-quarrel between Rahul and his friend Vivek in a party scene is enough evidence of expecting a hot-temper bursting scene but falling below than expected.
Somebuddy should ask why Mohit Suri termed the movie as a sequel to Aashiqui as there was nothing to continue and was framed with a new package. The climax of the movie was much understood after noticing all recent Bhatt intense romantic movies. Music of the movie is what makes the movie a blockbuster and “Tum Hi Ho” is Mithoon’s one of finest numbers of his musical career. But the musical comparison of both Aashiquis may come to debate but my humble opinion is that score of original Aashiqui was way way way better.
Movie Status: Drinking alcohol and loving a girl can never work together… Go to hell, you are drunk!!!!
