The legends called Nadeem-Shravan
21 May 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

For a six year old child it is very difficult to remember about movies and songs. However there are movies, their music and there was Aashiqui. It was not just another movie with hit music. It was a phenomenon. The sale of music players was increased dramatically in those days. Practically every home in India had a audio cassette(today's CD/DVD wielding kids would probably never know of them!!) of Aashiqui in their home. It is not very common to come across albums with almost all the songs being awesome. However in this case, the word "almost" can be easily dropped. Each and every song of this movie is timeless. Nadeem-Shravan may not be creative and experimental like A. R. Rehman, but it is true that if "melody" had a second name it would be Nadeem-Shravan. "Aashiqui", "Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin","Sadak", "Saajan", "Deewana", "Dil Ka Kya Qusoor", "Salami", "Damini", "Dil Wale", "Raja Hindustani", "Jeet", "Pardes" are examples of this genius combination. Mahesh Bhatt is one of the finest filmmakers we had, but it is sad that his biggest commercial success is probably his weakest work as a director, or probably got overshadowed by the lovable music. The acting in this movie is anything but good. Rahul Roy caught the fancy of many young girls in those days and his hair style was an instant rage, however the guy just couldn't act and sadly it was clearly visible in the movie too. Recently in a TV show, Kareena Kapoor admitted, she has a poster of Salman in her room, which she replaced with Rahul's when Aqshiqui released. However anybody who had seen this movie can easily predict that Rahul lacked the charisma to be a major star. Anu Agarwal showed the signs of things to come. Apart from acting in B-Grade Hollywood soft porn, the girl couldn't achieve anything. It is common for an actor to pull off a movie single handedly despite of shoddy script and bad music. In some cases even some directors have pulled off a movie by tight narration despite unconvincing performance. Aqshiqui is one of the rare cases, where Music alone pulled off a movie.
