I lost three hours of my life. No I did not break my head and have a concussion. Worse - I watched Aisha. The Bollywood film that had everyone licking their lips in anticipation of watching Sonam Kapoor clad in Christian Dior. Methinks that the movie would have had a better chance if the producers had spent a little less time on their deals with Christian Dior, Haagen Dazs and L'oreal and slightly more time on a workable script.
Here is a little tidtbit I found online that really make you ponder the production values of Aisha.
"Though makers of Aisha feel that Abhay Deol is the perfect choice but it seems the actor is not satisfied with the remuneration and length of his role. As reported Abhay was upset that his remuneration for the film is lesser than Sonam Kapoor's hair and costume budget. "
Why on Gods earth am I supposed to love Aisha ? The girl is seemingly stupid, arrogant, stubborn, selfish and filled with a sense of self entitlement. I can't find a reason to love this girl, let alone wish all through the movie that she gets the guy. That is after all the reason why we love rom-coms, we get to root for the girl and then we begin to believe in happy endings when the protagonist gets hers. I didn't want Aisha to get her happy ending, in fact I could not think of a single character less deserving of a happy ending. It felt as though not only the cast but even the crew had been high on weed that Aisha's friends smoke all through the film. Maybe next time invest a little bit more on the nuances of a good story such as character motivation, and audience involvement - or even better, next time leave film making to the pros.
I understand romantic comedies are not made to be intellectually stimulating but please do not make a mockery of human intelligence as you do when you make films like Aisha.
