Koirala Shines In This Badly Directed And Poorly Written Nasha
10 April 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

I had heard terrible things about 'Chaahat Ek Nasha...' but I thought I'd give it a chance since it was a free opportunity to watch Manisha Koirala. It turned out to be better than what I had expected. It still is a bad movie but far from the worst. The direction and writing are quite poor. The dialogues are one cliché after another and the attempt at humour is pathetic.

I liked the story angle of a fading superstar whose career rapidly tumbles down when she is replaced by a younger singer. Things turn worse when her manager boyfriend falls in love with the rival and decides to marry her. The story should have focused on the downfall of the fading star who once had everything and is now gradually losing it all. However, mindless subplots, such as the Rahul- Rashmi romance or the entire Sharad Kapoor track take the film to another direction and the last fifteen minutes are ridiculously bad.

Manisha Koirala is terrific as Mallika. If there is any reason to watch 'Chaahat Ek Nasha...' it is for her. Her convincing portrayal of a confident, cheerful, kind-hearted singer who transforms to a sad, tormented and alcoholic almost has-been is very good. Aryan Vaid is wooden and Preeti Jhangiani is passable at best. The songs, with the exception of the engagement track, are forgettable.

Under the hands of better writers and a better director, this could have been an interesting character-driven film but alas.
