I may have despised Imtiaz Ali's overrated 'Love Aaj Kal' but 'Socha Na Tha' is a treat to watch. An offbeat but sincere romantic comedy that stars Abhay Deol and Ayesha Takia, 'Socha Na Tha' feels fresh because of its appropriate lack of saccharine and straight forward storytelling. Ali is a talented writer as not only does he have a fresh way of telling stories but the dialogues are also first rate. Abhay Deol already proves what a promising actor he is in his very first role. He is confident as Viren and shares a great chemistry with his cute co-star Ayesha Takia. Takia too is very likable as Aditi. After 'Dor' this is perhaps her best performance. The supporting cast, that includes Ayesha Jhulka as a hot bhabhi, Rati Agnihotri as a hot-headed aunt, Suresh Oberoi as the patriarchal dad, Sandhya Mridul as the supportive sister, Vijay Maurya as the friend in need and Rajendranath Zutshi as the angry but hilarious brother, is very good. The songs are cool and calm and they agree with the pace of the film. I also liked the camera-work. My favourite parts of the movies are the dialogue scenes between Viren and Aditi and between Viren and his sister-in-law (especially when she's confused by Viren's constantly changing decisions). 'Socha Na Tha' is a fun romantic movie that works as a great date movie and an enjoyable rainy day flick.
