Aashiqui 2 Movie Review


Rajeev Masand didn't review Aashiqui 2 this week
Ratings:4/5  Review By:  Taran Adarsh  Site:Bollywood Hungama
AASHIQUI 2 brings back memories of A STAR IS BORN, which was made thrice in Hollywood -- in 1937, 1954 and 1976. AASHIQUI 2 bears no resemblance to its namesake. This one prides itself with a contemporary plot, has far more complex and intricate drama and offers abundant scope to its lead actors to display histrionics. Actually, AASHIQUI 2 is more of vintage stuff. It demonstrates, in abundance, the romance we witnessed in the 1970s and 1980s, which is misplaced in Hindi movies in the present day. On the whole, AASHIQUI 2 brings romance back on the Hindi screen -- intense, pure, selfless and heart wrenching. A stirring account with brilliant moments, bravura performances, strong emotional quotient and addictive music, this one's an absolute must watch for the romantics.

The problem is that once we are invested in these people, Suri doesn’t take the story much further. It becomes over-wrought, repetitive and ultimately, boring. The film however, never becomes more than the sum of its parts. I’m going with two and a half stars. Aashiqui 2 falls into that lukewarm category of not bad. But it could have been so much more.

The drama has tragedy and gloominess written all over it and this would restrict the film’s appeal to an extent. Although the film is targeted at the youth, the tragedy may not appeal universally because today’s youngsters prefer watching happy films. Had the tragic hero been a big star, it would’ve been a different case as the star’s charisma would have added to the appeal of the character.On the whole, Aashiqui 2 is an entertaining film with hit music and the sacrificing nature of the heroine as it biggest trump cards. It will keep its distributors smiling.

Mohit Suri is a director who knows his craft and he continues to make cinema with certitude and heart. Aashiqui 2's delicate handling certainly feels more than mere execution of a script. It's just that his audience needs to be in a similar space of mind to truly enjoy this film. Sure it has its music and moments, but it doesn't really say anything new.

Ratings:3.5/5  Review By:  Madhureeta Mukherjee  Site:Times Of India (TOI)
Mohit Suri's musical love story doesn't bear much semblance to the original cult film 'Aashiqui'; instead it finds its own rhythm. He pitches the story with old-world romance, high-drama and well-crafted heart-breaking moments. He tunes the first half slowly, allowing the romance to simmer in torment and triumph. Aarohi's character is endearing, but displays innate strength. Rahul stays pretty much 'bottled' (like 'Devdas' with a cause), with sudden outbursts of frustration and fury. The story slows down in parts and the climax might seem unreal to many, but maybe a 'fix' for die-hard aashiqs. Note: You will not like this if die-hard romantic films don't leave you enthused or entertained.

Suri clearly had a hard time establishing the premise and fleshing out his characters. The plot is constantly weighed down by painfully mundane conversations (at one point, a lovestruck RJ is told by his dad over the phone, ‘When son is in love, father just knows.’) and fails to justify the developments in the story. The young actors look just as unconvinced and disinterested.As I see it, what probably started as an interesting story idea -- troubled artists, dynamics in a relationship -- eventually got buried under the debris of random motifs from previous hits delivered by the Bhatt camp.

There are so many ‘WTF’ moments in the film that you start losing count. Beginning with the basic understanding of the lead characters. Neither Rahul nor Aarohi look like singers. Their body language is too stiff and pretentious to mime the free spirit of a performer. He’s aimlessly floating through life like that plastic bag from American Beauty, while her attention is divided between singing and being a part time rehab nurse to her lover. In between this they find time to express their love and hate to one another. The film’s only saving grace are the melodious tunes and the background score.

The more I see these so-called love stories with promising beginnings and then wandering about, not knowing what to do with themselves, the more I wonder whether present day Bollywood has any idea of making real romances any more. Suri has directorial skill (some of his sequences in Woh Lamhe are still on recall), but where are the people writing good stuff ? Once the lovers come together, and the first act is over, why does everything slide? This Aashiqui 2 holds out promise, but doesn't make the most of it.

Ratings:1.5/5  Review By:  Saibal Chaterjee Site:NDTV
Aashiqui 2 is riddled with syrupy inanities that add up to insubstantial treacle. No amount of surface gloss can salvage it. The film is obviously meant for a youth audience, which is probably not the easiest segment to inveigle. In Aashiqui 2, some of the songs are definitely hummable, but the musical score as a whole is patchy. And the love story in which they are embedded lacks the requisite solidity. So neither film nor the music ever rises above the very, very ordinary. Fluffy and flaky, Aashiqui 2 is simply not peppy enough to paper over its cracks. It does not strike any chords. There aren't too many highs in its hackneyed saga of songs and sighs.

What’s Good: Aditya Roy Kapur is the killer factor of this film. That’s all there’s to look for in this one. What’s Bad: A bumpy screenplay and dialogues that are delivered at deafeningly high decibels are quite indigestible. Loo break: Yes. Yes. Hell Yes. Watch or Not?: Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2 rambles on about a love story that turns into a convoluted mess because of alcoholism. With absolutely nothing remarkable in this distasteful blend of Devdas and Abhimaan, I will recommend this film only for Aditya Roy Kapur’s intense acting.

Ratings:2/5  Review By:  Mayank Shekhar  Site:Dainik Bhaskar
The heroine here, a playback artiste, manages to become a singing sensation in very little time. Fans request her for autographs. She doesn’t lose her mind to personal ambition, is quite centred still. The hero doesn’t want to get back to the groove. We know very little about how he went down this self-destructing route. Loneliness isn’t his concern anymore, anger management is. He keeps taunting himself, instead of concentrating on the work that gave him all the glory anyway. Why do I always feel that a lot of such characters should be seeing therapists rather than having films made on them? If this went on for any longer, I’d need to see a shrink too.

    5. If you are saying 2.5 then you dont know actually what is this movie about. You did not understand the movie completely or you dont know what is love or relationship.
      Please go and watch the movie 2 or 3 times then you will know how good is that movie. It should get 4.5.
      It is movie of decade. As per my view I will give it 5 / 5.

    6. I agree with sujit and Asad it is one of d best romantic movies in decades. The box office result speaks louder than this biased critics.

    7. i agree with above three previous people. its one of the best romantic movies of this decade and performance of both leads is amazing. especially actress shraddha i have become her fan. it deserves 5/5 . i think these critics only see movie from one angle. it requires that heart and mind to feel and understand the human emotionsbeautifully shown here

  15. If a musical, why is it supposed to be only with playback singers as the lead? And if a love-story, why it should only be ruined & ruled over by professional egos, desire, fame, frustration over failures making one of the love-birds crawl towards nearest bar? Haven’t we had seen similar stuffs before in Indian cinema?

    But I think, bollywood is not finished & tired of it so far. So, now we have Mohit Suri’s so called musical love-story AASHIQUI 2. ‘So called’ because it deals with personal problems & professional turmoils of two individuals more than the intensity & warmth of being in love together. The complexities in relationship are foreseen here as soon as you come to know that a fading superstar singer is falling in love with a promising voice of tomorrow. Rest you only wait for your presumptions hitting the bull’s eye sooner or later. The writer & director sure try their best to blow twists on your faces [the end is one of them] but it doesn't work too much because even they come back to the same whatever you had in your mind.

    On the positive side, it’s the music that scores over the rest. If not quaking your emotions meticulously, it definitely creates ripples in your heart. And how can one snatch credit from Aditya Roy Kapoor? He is the most convincing-competent & comfortable in possibly every frame he appears. Shraddha gets it right for the most part though her dialogue delivery needs serious makeover. With a wooden face that merely expresses anything, Shaad Randhawa puts you off every time he tries to open his mouth.

    Fresh pairing, soulful music & Aditya Roy Kapoor, AASHIQUI 2 had its chances but the predictability, expectations, overtly exposed set-up and the baffles in the script kill them ruthlessly. Better watch its song videos on YouTube! They have replay button also there which I am sure you’ll be using more than once. [2/5]

  19. Here comes yet another romantic movie of the season Aashiqui 2 which promises to take you on a musical journey.

    Aashiqui 2 is a story of a famous artist Rahul Jaykar (Aditya Roy Kapoor) who has lost fame because of being an alcoholic. One day he visits a bar where he comes across this girl, Aarohi (Shraddha Kapoor). He is so impressed by her voice that he offers her to come to Mumbai. Rahul takes her responslibity and arranges everything for her. Aarohi soon becomes a sensation. The couple falls in love.

    Meanwhile Rahul’s career declines continuously. He gets even more trapped in alcohol and his loneliness. Aarohi makes every possible step to get back him to life. She even once decides to quit playback singing and devote her time to him. Rahul does not approve of this. What happens in the end?

    Many a people will say that Aashiqui 2 is predictable. Yes it is but it is engaging too. And the film’s music just helps it. ‘Tum Hi Ho’ is definitely the country’s favorite today.
    The biggest problem with Aashiqui 2 is that it is way too lengthy. I don’t know why the filmmakers do not understand this fact. And that is the reason why as an audience you will get irritated. Mohit Suri’s direction could have been tighter.

    Aditya Roy Kapoor is brilliant. He is the one that impresses you most. Shraddha Kapoor is good. She has definitely done better than her last film (Luv Ka The End). Shaad Randhawa does impress you in the climax.
    Overall, Aashiqui 2 to me was a good time pass. I won’t say it is a paisa vasool but it won’t disappoint you either. Just keep your expectations low!

    Rating- 2.5/5

  20. I think all critics are paid.... even rajeev masand
    if not than why does it happens that only the big budget movies are being reviewed by them. Out of so many movies released in bollywood (biggest film industry on earth) only an odd no. Of 50-60 movies are being reviewed by them.

    Even on this friday 3 more movies were released alone in mumbai, but no one was bothered to review them.

    If u r a critic than it becomes ur job to review all movies... and if nt than u r nt faithful to ur job... than how can u expect us to trust u guys.....

    2. I know that Rajeev is a human too, and likewise other reviewers are. But my point here is that no one is bothered to even review the small budget movies (an m not talking about just this week). See for yourself, do you even know the names of other movies that released this Friday, and if yes than were u even bothered to review them (hope you are a reviewer, considering you are reviewing movies for last few weeks or so).

    3. i buy your point sir. and trust me, not as a reviewer [i don't consider that myself]but as a viewer, i so want to watch every film that releases even the ones in regional languages too but sometimes, it really gets difficult to catch it. likewise, i reside in Delhi-NCR and here regional movies dont get released with subtitles, small films dont get good number of shows...aur kabhi kabhi toh shows cancle bhi ho jaate hain kyunki viewers hi nahin milte [that happened with me with inarittu's BEUTIFUL, can u imagine that]...all said & done, i'll keep youtrpoint next time and ll sure try my best to catch small films also. :)

      For all those who dont even know abt other movies released this friday heres the list

    3. Amazing acting, Mohit Suri you deserve lots of accolades for this. Indian Reviewers are largely influenced by Hollywood reviewers and they speak shit but there are exceptions like Masand, but as they and we are humans, everyone has their choices. But as they speak in public, must choose their words and opinions responsibly. Again they are just reviewing we shud be the one to decide. I loved Aashiqui 2. Mahesh Bhatt RESPECT :)

    4. thanx guys.. As a reviwer i believe a film should not be always rated according ti song,action,drama and entertainment. the review sud be according to audience stating what kind of audience sud go for the movie and who sudnnt as evryone has his own taste of movies.. you cant generlise a movie for everyone taste. This movie will surely be appriciated by lovers and couples. Fans of rowdy & dabangg movies sud wait untill mental releses or go for iron man 3.

    The songs are just amazing and today's generation would love them. Tum Hi Ho & Sunn Raha Hai are the love anthems, many cinegoers were humming the tracks and very well placed in the movie. If i have to rate it, 3.5/5

  32. Watched it .. and loved it. Though it was not an extraordinary movie but it bought with it the freshness of the romantic movies which was lost some where in time. It has its moments of everything and is definitely for all who are and believe in love. There is no wrong in saying that the tracks were superb and I had goosebumps after listening to couple of those. Worth a watch !!

    I don't understand why critics always try to under rate movies. Do they think, that shows their talent, how well they can figure out the flaws from a movie! I seriously doubt if they ever can enjoy a movie as a normal man as they have these extra glasses on their eyes just to search for the flaws.

    2. Gauravji, I would like to say that critics should watch a movie two times. 1st like a common man , and the 2nd time, they should watch it like a critic. This one is a real good love story demonstrating intense love for each other and encouraging good values and good human relationships like friends n parents. This is needed for the society.The director and producer have kept themselves away from demonstration of unnecessary sex and violence though they had ample opportunity as Aarohi was a Bar singer and Rahul gets beaten and had a car crash early in the film. What I meant to say is...love stories are a different category like NOTEBOOK and GHOST. Action movies are a different category. Coolie no.1 or Bare miya Chhote miya are of a different category.Films like Roshomon or The Chess Players or Gandhi are a differnt category. While reviewing, at least the reviewers should watch the film with the mindset of watching the film of that particular category. Otherwise, your reviews will be incomplete and would not reflect the truth. And the truth is...all the movies mentioned above are good movies in their respective category. But if u judge Coolie no.1 with the eyes of watching Gandhi... you will just throw it out of the window. Hope people critisising the critics will read this and stop using abusive languages against them. Thank you all.

  38. AAshiqui 2- Simplistically Beautiful
    Saw Aashiqui - 2 and just took time to recollect everything I saw and trust me, it’s worth every penny you spend, worth every bit. First had decided to read the reviews of Aashiqui - 2 both off and on net and then think of being there. My biggest mistake I suppose. These so called critiques just ruin or bias your personal thought process and perception. Do you really believe that someone else should decide for you if you need to spend some bucks on a movie? Guess not and it should be a “NO”. With some tongue twisting English words, some personalized analysis about a movie sitting on a comfy couch and the “stars” at the end; these should never come in our way in pampering ourselves with movies made out of so much painstaking labor. I would rather ask them, how many stars would “your” movie deserve if you could ever make one? The main problem with them, according to me could be, you know “my perception”, that appreciation may be tougher compared to criticism as the former is longer by 3 character than the latter (appreciation is 12 characters and criticism is 9). Guess this could be the only reason for not appreciating something made so “simplistically beautiful” like Aashiqui - 2. You may now think why you should believe me then? Well answer is only one. I am not a paid critique but a common man, so no influence.
    Movie starts with the song Sun raha hai and believe me this will thrill with the power it oozes, so impactful that, the beats, vocals and Aditya Roy Kapoor would lure you into their own world. Rest you be there and help yourself. Some said he did not act well, expressionless, but after watching the movie I felt that they wanted “KkkkkkKiran….” kind of acting or were missing the “chulbulness” of Chulbul Pandey. RJ depicted a man, having a big fan following but already drowned in his own inner grief of self-abandonment and remorse, a book of pain whose even a single word is not known to anyone, like a heart in crowd yet in grim lonesome. I felt tint of Aamir Khan in him as he let his eyes emote that inner restlessness than his lips. “Smile and forge” was his character so decided not to over-expression any situation. Perfect I suppose and if he would have done that, people would have accused him for being melodramatic. So Aditya you were just excellent. And the high octane emotional scenes were just so spellbinding. Watch it guys….
    Shraddha Kappor, tried not to describe her but can’t help. Esthetic, eternal, mesmeric and exceptionally simple and so breathtakingly beautiful that you would sit in awe all the time she is there in the frame. Performance! Well let’s not discuss on that as I suggest you go watch Aashiqui - 2 and explore (my indications are optimistically promising). You would love her and needless to say, wish to have someone like her. I already did. Before the movie ends you will be in love with her eventually, even without realizing it.
    Story of Aashiqui – 2, well one of the most unprecedentedly simple, sophisticated, appealing and extremely pleasing. What else to add in my garland of applauds for this movie has made me clean bold already, no IPL here. I request you to go for this picturesque rendition of love and realize how beautiful would it be to get engulfed in arms of love, so soothing and comforting and very selfless. No more dialogues. DO WATCH IT…..

  39. watched the movie today... i read all the comments and reviews here and i have to say wtf is wrong with these so called critics???

    No movie can be considered perfect... every movie has some flows and just because of them u can't ignore the other good aspect of film... coming back to the movie, If u have really loved someone in life then u can relate urself to the movie otherwise movie will be hard to digest

    Very simple story with simple screenplay but best thing is direction and music... u can feel the characters emotions

    So don't go by critics... just go and watch this movie

    No stars from me... a big THUMBS UP
    GO AND FEEL the AASHIQUI

  48. Casting-Aditya Roy Kapur(Rahul Jaykar),Shraddha Kapoor(Arohi Shirke),Shaad Randhawa(Vivek)

    A soothing musical romance comprising of an emotional story,fresh actors,heart touching songs and all it takes for a movie to be the one worth remembering.The movie begins with Rahul Jaykar(RJ) completely drunk
    and singing one of his hit songs Sun Raha Hai Na Tu after which he meets Arohi singing the same song better than him in a bar and falls in love with her.For a deep insight of their innocent and selfless love http://shadedinks.blogspot.in/2013/05/aashiqui-2-love-story-of-year.html

  49. The critiques here are totally absurd. I watched this movie twice and all I can say that - I feel that movie. I cried, laughed, smiled and sometimes, wanted to jump in and hug the characters for their mindblowingness(Haha!)

    I can only say that you MUST feel the movie to see the real ashiqui in it. I don't know why, now a days, people like movies with full of action and comedy, deprived of any good, sophisticated story line.

    This movie depicts pious love of RJ and Arohi. The madness of love they depicted is totally worth watching.

    I'm not saying that this movie may be perfect, though, it is perfect for me, but it may happen that you find some flaws. Actually, it depends on what are you trying to find in the movie? If it's action, comedy, masala, etc. Then, I'm sorry! Go and watch Iron man 3 or wait for other wierd bollywood movies. But, if you're really trying to watch something true, pure, selfless, then I suggest that go and watch this movie NOW! or otherwise you're missing something GREAT! :D

    First song is Sun raha hai tu... When the song started and I saw Aditya Roy Kapoor, I got goosebumps. RJ's eyes, full of emotions, stuck deep in my heart. He seemed so lonely and depressed, that I wanted Arohi to kiss his pain away and I must say that she tried her best.

    I'm gonna blast your little bubbles of imagination by saying that this movie is UNIQUE and ORIGINAL, and it is not depicting rockstar or Abhimaan in anyway. Rockstar is a journey of a normal man into becoming a rockstar whereas, Abhimaan is way too different than Ashiqui. I suggest to watch Ashiqui 2 and then only come to any conclusion. I really didn't expect the end, so I can say that it is not predictable.

    Lastly, all the people around me LOVED this movie. People cried after watching it. I saw it twice in 4 days. I keep on listening its songs all the day and after watching the movie, the songs became more intensified and attained a deeper meaning.

    I LOVE this movie and IMO, it is perfect in depicting love, heart-break, sacrifices and emotions because we, as an audience, succeeded in feeling it :)
    And I LOVE Aditya Roy Kapoor now!!! :D

  53. Helllllllllllllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Everybody please readddddddddddddddddddd

    I dont what is going wrong with indian cinema director MOHIT SURI DIRECTOR of ashique2 i should say film is just awesome the actresses shraddha kapoorrrrrr is just too good in her acting and role in the movie and also ADITYA ROY but i dont know what happened to him and story writer till end the it is good to watch but in the end the hero died spoiling all the charisma and romance of the movie.
    The fool generalist of news channel who quoted that romantic persons should watch but if they loved ever they should know that where is the love when one person dies.
    And the directors should know why dilwale dulhaniya completed its 500 weeks hum sath sath sath hai dabang & dabang 2 inc trp everytime because of itz happy ending vaise hi itne gum hai duniya mai ek saala movie mai bhi yehi shuru kar diya. Before watching ghazni i loved kaise mujhe tum mil gai song but after watching movie i never want to hear that even though song is great my hello tune is song tum hi ho but now im thinking to change because that make me remember the tragedyyyyyy in ashique 2. Well mohit suri you spoiled my craze of watching your beautifully directed and too good star cast.............................

  54. The choise of female lead is what makes this movie mediocre ...she looks stunning yet very ordinary not soulful ...Anu Agrawal was very ordinary looking yet she was so soulful that;s the difference

    ReplyDelete
  55. Seriously whats wrong with u ppl. Last time a honest and emotionel film was made was probably veer zaara (ppl who thought it was jab tak hai jaan eeh no..that movie was slow and boring and too long & bad acting by katrina of course) I've watched aashiqui 2 now 7 times and I cannot see it without wet eyes. Theese days feels like ppl only want emran hashmi sex storys and item numbers by katrina.

    And I saw aashiqui few days ago and it was terrible even the songs were just okay. But the acting and chemistry was so bad. If u guys think that aditya and shraddas acting was stif or bad dialouge delivery then rahul roys and anu agarwal was nothing better for 23 years ago. Anu's acting was so bad that it almost made me cry..she had no expressions, no reactions and just bad acting.
    The movie was more slow then aashiqui 2 so I dont get how ppl think the first one was good it even surprises me that it was a blockbuster then and probably bcuz of the music then too.

    One review said that mohit doesnt bring anythimg new..lile cmon lets get real has any movie this year or last year been anything new. Almost every movie this year has been just remakes and copies from hollywod.

    Aashiqui 2 is so much better than the recent "love stories" movies that was made. But of course haters gonna hate if the lead characters were together at the end with happy ending then ppl would complain and now when it didnt happen ppl still complaining. But yes the movie could be better but ppl should have their expectation as low they can for every movie.

    So F - off haters u dont have a heart to even appreciate this movie.

  66. Aashiqui 2 is a movie which goes even beyond heart.
    It is a very excellent movie about love nad relationship.
    Those who are saying that it is bad movie or not good for them I will say you dont know anything about movies, please dont comment form now on if you dont know about a movie.
    Wtf with hose people.
    These type of eternal movies you people are saying just not good.
    You people dont understand actually this movie, what this movie is all about and what is true caring and love.
    Those who are saying end is ruined the charisma of love, you are wrong, without that movie is nothing.
    That shows extent of love, that shows if we love someone truely then how deep we fall in love with them
    Many people will not understand this movie
    those who understand the movie and say it good movie, for them I applaud but those who dislike this movie first go and learn how to understand what a movie wants to convey. You people dont have feelings and sense.
    And the critics they actually dont rate the movie they only critiize teh movies that this this things are wrong and they will over overshadow the best things of movies.
    For them I will just say you jut dont know what this movie is about and you dont know or dont understand anything about this movie.
    This i movie of decade.
    This type of movies are not made now-a-days. I will thank this movie's director and producers to make so aweome and outstanding movie. from me rating is 4.5 or even 5.

  67. And Miss Anupama Chopra, Nishi Tiwari, Tuhar Joshi, Subhra Gupta, Saibal Chaterjee, Mohar Basu, Mayank Shekhar from now on please dont rate any movie, as you dont know how to rate or on what basis to rate the movies and first you dont understand the movies.

    I dont know what the wrong with critics.
    Critics are not only for criticising and saying movie as bad, they should cosider and think about all aspects of a movie and then they should convey right review to public

  68. The songs are good, but Shraddha kapoor's acting looked far from natural. The movie overall is quite boring dragging the same line from the beginning to the end. After seeing the movie, the first question that comes is "Sala director kyon hai?". Movie dekhne ke baad rona toh aayega, for the time n money you invested in the first place.

    movie after a very long time.Some of them criticizing the movie what the Hell is wrong with you guys.What do you expect from a movie ?
    I agree the the climax was not so good but you cannot expect only happy endings always as part of acting Shradda and Aditya are only 2-3 movies old.Give some time to them .Criticizing is so easy but seeing the same movie in actors perceptive is entirely different.
    I agree with Rajeev Masand
    This movie deserves 5 out of 5.

    3.5 out of 5

    ReplyDelete
  77. okay, lets get the basics straight first. Aashiqui 2 is an out and out romantic flick with no little or no moments of chuckles.I am no fan of romantic movies & actually saw it because it was a birthday treat of a friend.Now since we got that out of the way, here's my quick critical take, on this.
    First of all, there's no mention, whatsoever, as to WHY RJ is such an alcoholic. Infact, at the beginning of the movie, we actually speculated that the whole story has taken place & he is now inebriated to nurse his broken heart. But that isnt it.And the direcor takes no pain to explain the same lateron in the movie too.So we need to go figure this one.
    His rapid "sinking into oblivion" kind of attitude, is another no-brainer. So why does he venture to state that he wants to be alone & stuff, when he has tasted success?Okay, call it a success path curve & what have you,but it doesn't explain his WILL to fade.

    okay & then a fight back to Mumbai later, he is seen cajoling the "uncle" to listen to Aarohi once.Then walking out of the place, he is bashed up by ???god knows who random goons.so he is a dwindling star, so just about ANYONE gets to have a whack at him?where are his "guards" then?
    At the point later, when he decides to give up his addiction, a reporter comes in with his irritable grin & starts to pester RJ about their relationship & makes merry of it & a brief spat later, the same reporter is heard stating "apne aap ko kya samajhta hai" & "tu rukk abb mai tere baare mei kya chaapta hun" etc etc..Okay, so why EXACTLY did this guy bother to talk to RJ?go figure again
    At the police station,Arohi starts to give out her jewellery etc to the incharge.Okay so she is a big star and doesnt have any money on her?even the "uncle" doesnt pitch in?pardon my ignorance, but does giving jewellery entitle the incharge to release RJ?
    Although Aditya Roy kapoor did a commendable job in his role, yet there are moments in the movie, where he uncannily resembles Farhan Akhtar, both in expressions as well as mannerisms.
    Shraddha kapoor tried real hard to offer justice to her role as Arohi, yet her character itself had has been so sketchy, with hanging between dazed to being sickeningly sweet at times.Also, she needed to atleast have observed professional playback singers, when she was singing, because her body language was stiff & her expressions remained non-commital, probably because she didnt like contorting her face.I am no singer & not anti-shraddha, yet,there is a point when RJ tries to sings for a second grade movie, he makes an attempt & Aditya really expressed that effort in his body language, although WHY he decided to say his career was finished, in the immediate scene, is beyond me.The lack of commitment to Arohi's role was a little too evident.
    Rest, well guys, this is my take on this flick.Please understand, It is an individual opinion & is not meant to hurt anyone.I already said that I hate movies with pathos, in the very beginning.If you read this through, then am sure you have felt a little critical about the movie yourself.
    Thanks for your time.

  80. Rigt now I am watching the original Aashiqui and around 2 weeks back I saw Aashiqui 2........ I won't say much about Aasiqui 1 coz I am half way through the Movie. All I wanna say about aashiqui 1 is dat I haven't got bored yet......
    Now about Asshiqui 2,I found Aashiqui 2 a good "1-time watch movie".... sumtimes gets boring but I sum how liked the theme...... This movie seems like a modern remake of Big B's Classic Abhiman. Songs were awesom, Casting was ok Shraddha tried a lot to copy Anu Agarwal, But Aditya was Original....... In the end i would like 2 say dat watch dis movie if u want to see a 21st century Abhiman...

  83. Aashiqui 2 is not a romantic film. It's a love film with so much pain hidden inside it. To understand this film, one will have to understand the facts of life and the truth of life. God has blessed the humans with a wonderful thing called LOVE and u can only witness that word called LOVE in Aashiqui 2. There was never a film on love as painful and as heart touching as Aashiqui 2 and there will not be one in the future. This was a lifetime experience much larger than life. Aashiqui 2 is beyond one's imagination and no one has the capacity to rate it. This is not just another film which the critics usually rate on various parameters. To feel the beauty of this film, one should be good at heart.

  84. I completely agree with imtiaz one really needs to know the bad side of the life and the taste of success to understand ashiqui2 as well as aditya Roy's character in the film.All failure's and just sex addicts and people born with a silver spoon cannot understand the pain which aditya is facing in the movie.Critics are doing their business.Ashiqui 2 just for true lovers not.tanya
