We all have tried to hook up two of our friends or at least someone has tried to hook us with someone, which most of the times fails miserably. But still there’s a matchmaker in most of us and this is especially to be seen in a marriage-centric country like India. Hence, Aisha reeks of a strong relatable factor and the makers and writers had won half of the battle by choosing a script like this one. Besides, they got some supremely fresh and talented actors on board and added some beautiful music too. With so many plusses in its favour, Aisha works but unfortunately only in parts. The treatment needed a mature touch which debutant director Rajshree Ojha failed to do so. A great chance lost!
The story of the movie: Aisha (Sonam Kapor) is an upmarket Delhi girl whose favourite pastime is matchmaking among her friends and relatives. Arjun (Abhay Deol), her childhood friend who has just returned from New York, detests this trait of Aisha. Aisha comes across Shefali (Amrita Puri), a small town girl, who’s in Delhi to marry. Her matchmaking side tells her that Shefali and one of her friend, Randhir (Cyrus Sahukar) can be a cute couple and she sets on a mission to hook them.

Blessed with a classic yet modern Indian face, the surreal beauty describes herself as “a young, happy-go-lucky, well-read working girl, who likes to work hard and have fun meeting people.”
She makes no bones about the fact that she is a feminist, “I believe in standing up for my rights. I have been brought up in a very modern environment and treated equally by my father.”
For someone who claims to have been treated as an equal, it is surprising that unlike her male counterparts (read star sons) she was not launched within the home production with fanfare as is the norm in Bollywood for star-daughters.
Having found a foothold in the industry, she is finally doing the film Aisha for her father Anil Kapoor’s production. But she’s quick to point out, “My father is not making a movie for me, he is making the movie because he believes in the script. If he had to do a film for me, he would have More >
