A Classic Romantic Movie
I give it 6 out of 10, because the movie portrays two young, innocent characters, capturing their romance, strengths and weaknesses in their budding relationship. While watching this movie since 1990 and up till today, Bollywood movies today are incomparable to Aashiqui. This movie captures the romance of two innocent, young lovers...Which is why I gave additional bonus points for this classic movie. You can't find a good quality, innocent romantic movies in this generation without sex.
The music definitely makes up the flaws of this movie. It's flawless. Even to this date, there is no other music that is elegant and timeless such as the music featured in this movie. The soundtrack is what made this movie famous and a success. It had garnered bonus points, because of the soundtrack. It ranked fourth place on Planet Bollywood's Top 100 list for a reason: It's worth listening to.
On the other hand, the acting is very "bland"...I also have no words to describing the characters' enthusiasm to their skills in dancing. It was very tasteless and there was no "oomph" in their moves. It's very upsetting to see two reasonable looking actors, that fit the image of the decent characters very well, but yet their acting was below average. A disappointment on both Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal. I could only compliment on Dipak Tijori and Reema Lagoo for their acting skills. They deserve bonus points on their supporting roles.
In addition to the disadvantages, the movie was set up in a chronological order: Boy meets girl, they fall in love, there are obstacles where they can't meet each other and they finally live happily ever after. Very traditional. Very Bollywood...With a few twists and turns. You just know what was going to happen next.
In conclusion, the high verdict is mostly based on the timeless soundtrack and the innocent romance of two young lovers that are deeply in love. If you're looking to pass time with your loved one and curling up to watch this movie or feel like falling in love all over again, watch it...But I wouldn't say it's a must-see. Skip it if you feel like it...You're not missing out on too much. But the music is very much worth listening to.
