|Koi Mere Dil Se Pooche|
Starring Aftab Shivdasani, Esha Deol, Jaya Bachchan, Anupam Kher and Sanjay Kapoor
Directed by Vinay Shukla
Aman (Aftab Shivdasani) is a NIFT student who is deeply into his course, but his father (Anupam Kher) wants him married and settled down in life. But Aman knows what he wants and is determined to stick to it.
And then Aman meets Aisha (Eesh Deol) and is instantly in love with her. This despite all the cold stares that comes from the heroine. And the heroine keeps her distance and runs to the arms of her mother Mansi Devi (Jaya Bachan).
But Aman persists with his desires and wants to marry Aisha. This is when he realises that there is a big secret that this mother-daughter is trying to hide. Aisha is already married to a wierdo and Mansi Devi is actually her mother in law. So we come to know how her son Dushyant (Sanjay Kapoor) is a pervert armed with a cam, believed to be dead.
But finally Aisha decides to let go off her past and decides to marry Aman. But our villain Dushyant makes a reappearance on the scene throwing things in disarray.
Eesh Deol, the highlight of this movie, has a lot of homework to do before she can be considered anything noteworthy. Eesha may have some dancing capabilities but when it comes to looks and acting, she has a long way to go. And moreover a role of a widow is not something that we expect a newcomer to pull off.
Then the hero - Aftab Shivdasani. His only impressive performance to date has to be those few moments in Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega as Harry. Besides that I am still yet to see him being comfortable in his roles.
Sanjay Kapoor could have had a comeback of sorts with this role. Sadly, the director opted to making him larger-than-life and really weird to begin with. I should say, an opportunity wasted. But atleast the man finally acts here.
And I can't figure out what is an actress like Jaya Bhachan doing in a film like this. There is nothing that this stereotype role can offer her. Anupam Kher is also a talent completely wasted.
Music wise also there is nothing much to boast over here from Rajesh Roshan. Lifting the track from the band 'BOND' is also not what I would call - inspired music either.
Vinay Shukla who came up with a powerful Godmother a couple of years back, winner of six national awards, mind you, simply puzzles you with this offering. Some might say that there is a substantial story, but sadly the script is as ridiculous as it can get. Looks like Vinay Shukla lost his way trying to get into the commercial bandwagon with Boney Kapoor as the producer.
Maybe Vinay without the big star pressures and Boney Kapoor as producer, might have come up with a better and honest movie. But ultimately what we have here is nothing short of crap!

Do you think Eesha Deol is a talent to watch out for??
