Very predictive and raw although the simplicity in the movie makes it a decent watch

Ahista Ahista is a noble idea that revolves realistically around a real love story that is trying to seek its destiny. The story and screenplay by Imtiaz Ali as expected is of a decent quality and the movie promises a lot in parts but it never takes off. The parts looks detached from each other and songs randomly joins the screenplay. It just lacks a rhythm. Soha Ali Khan and Abhay Deol, two brilliant actors does really well and does true justice to their parts. They make their love story believable, lovable and real. But again what is missing is the finishing and expected story line.Supporting actors have done just an okay job, nothing exceptional there, some over-acting in between is notable. The director, just lacks the skill a bit but all and all it is just a fine movie which lacks some pace and runs out of ideas in between and it leads to an abrupt end eventually. But what keeps going for you is an honest love story and some soulful music in between. Himesh Reshammiya does a fine job and music is as per the feel of the movie.

Overall its a decent watch, but I totally expect a lot more than this from a combination of Abhay Deol, Imtiaz Ali, Soha Ali Khan.
