Her stocks zoom; he hits the skids. The lead pair is a new one, and the Bhatts are hoping that the film does to Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor what Aashiqui did to Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal at least, the good bits. Aashiqui 2 is worth a watch just for the two leads. . The film itself has a lovely flow except for the abrupt last 10 minutes despite being 15-20 minutes longer than I would have liked it. Aashiqui 2, with a few light moments in the beginning, a little drama and loads of non-eewww romance, holds your attention and keeps it there. As it usually happens in romantic dramas, conflict attack in intermissions; some more pedantic than others, as Mr.
Flawed direction and other nitty-gritty kill it! Not only he is good looking but is also a good actor. Shraddha Kapoor is a pretty girl, but hey, we could have done with someone more spirited. The predictable jealousy angle as the partner becomes more famous is sidelined for a thornier problem - he is an alcoholic. Fluffy and flaky, Aashiqui 2 is simply not peppy enough to paper over its cracks. It's all and all romantic movie seen after a long long time. Nice job by both star's. So did that instantly-recognisable image of young-lovers-under-jacket.
But as in real life, in films too, life is not hunky dory. Does Aashiqui 2 have anything new to offer? To save her love and fragile relationship Aarohi decides to give up her career as she believes- Love Makes Life Live!!! Very slow and dragging movie. The thought behind this film is perfect. Isn't that what we want our loved one to do for us? Addictions in themselves don't make for compelling cinema - after a while, Rahul consuming copious amounts of alcohol, trashing rooms and getting into brawls becomes just tedious. This is what I liked the most in the film. Music was the only good thing.
Shraddha Kapoor is good with emotional scenes and enacts the from-the- bottom-of-the-heart kind of love with all earnest. His drinking and self-destructive behavior, like his perpetual stubble, feels like it's on loan from Abhishek Bachchan - who wears it much better! Aditya Roy Kapoor delivers a superb performance and Shraddha Kapoor does justice to her part as well. This was a loose attempt by the filmmaker. The screen play is gentle in the first half and uneven in the second half. The only good point about movie is song and music. It is by no means a great film.
He has done few roles before this movie but nothing special to mention, this movie would make him a star he should be. A stone faced actress and a perpetually stoned protagonist do to the film irreparable damage. The situation of the girl's parents over-the-top dramatic and what was the need for Rahul's dad's voice-over through phone calls? For a while at least, it forces him to engage with life again. The script seems to be inspired from 's ''. What more can you ask from a movie.
Tum hi Ho has already become the newest love anthem of the country. Aarohi's character is endearing, but displays innate strength. And the real triumph here is Shraddha, whose porcelain face has a haunting vulnerability. In comparison to its contemporary Aashiqui, this one wins the race in all but the music department. What has ensured immortality for it was its music album, which still ranks among the most popular ever produced in Mumbai. But the message story conveys it's not appealing.
