I watched Aisha, as I finished reading the book Emma. I didn't have high expectations but the movie disappointed me in terms of the screenplay and the acting (by Sonam Kapoor). In fact, I would not have understood Aisha as the person if I hadn't read the book.
Talking about screenplay, they focused more on style/fashion than the substance. Too much focus on Sonam. I know it was supposed to focus on her, but the focus was on her screen space, not her part/work in the story. Many crucial scenes were played out quite superficially, and left me wondering why/how it happened.
In terms of acting, Sonam was not up to the mark (awful in some scenes I would say). Looking pretty doesn't always work, she needs to learn how to act. Even with the same script, the movie could have been way better if Sonam acted well. Aisha, the character, was irritating, shallow, stubborn and pretentious to me, and I would guess it is the lack of ability of Sonam to portray the character of Emma who was spunky, headstrong, affable but pampered and manipulative. Amrita Puri and Ira Dubey did way better job than Sonam. No comments on Abhay. He is usually good, but in Aisha, there was no spark between the lead actors, and I blame it on Sonam.
Aisha is just a feel good movie, and I would not recommend it to anyone who loved Emma.
