SYNOPSIS
`Aashiqui 2` movie is a musical starring Rahul Jaykar (Aditya Roy Kapoor) and Arohi Shirke (Shraddha Kapoor) opposite each another. This romance takes you through a journey of two lovers who go through a very turbulent journey. Will they emerge stronger together or do their egos come in the way, separating the two?

Mahesh Bhatt`s `Aashiqui` (1990) created musical history. It made stars out Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal and more importantly, music directors, Nadeem Shravan. Mohit Suri (`Awarapan` `Murder 2`) now takes his uncle`s legacy forward with Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in `Aashiqui 2`. Music director, Mithoon and director, Mohit Suri have given us blockbuster musical hits before. Will they be able to recreate the musical magic of the original love story?

He sings. She sings. He, for his stardom. She, for her supper. And the twain meet. In a restrobar, where she croons and he swoons. And Aashiqui is born. Again!

The young actors look just as unconvinced and disinterested.As I see it, what probably started as an interesting story idea - troubled artists, dynamics in a relationship - eventually got buried under the debris of random motifs from previous hits delivered by the Bhatt camp ...Read full review
There are so many WTF moments in the film that you start losing count. Beginning with the basic understanding of the lead characters. Neither Rahul nor Aarohi look like singers. Their body language is too stiff and pretentious to mime the free spirit of a performer. Hes aimlessly floating through life like that plastic bag from American Beauty, while her attention is divided between singing and being a part time rehab nurse to her lover. In between this they find time to express their love and hate to one another. The films only saving grace are the melodious tunes and the background score. ...Read full review
