Directed by: Mohit Suri

Also featured in IMDb Critic Reviews

Aashiqui 2 took me by surprise. A successful film leaves a tough path for the sequel to follow. Moreover with an immature star cast and unimpressive trailer, I wasn't expecting much from this film.

But Aashiqui 2 has proved to be more than what many of us may have anticipated. It will keep you glued to your seats till the end. To start with, it has a good plot and the story moves at a nice pace so that you will be totally involved with the film and its characters.

The film starts with a stage performance by Rahul Jaykar, played by Aditya Roy Kapur, Rahul is an alcoholic whose career is on a downfall. He goes to a bar and finds this cheap club singer Aarohi, played by Shraddha Kapoor and he finds a reason to his life, to establish Aarohi as a superstar singer and then the film is all about that.

The characterization is awesome in Aashiqui 2, there is no extra unwanted characters in this film. The film revolves around the lives of 3 to 4 people only. Truly Aashiqui 2 is a surprise hit of 2013, like Vicky Donor was in 2012.

The acting is decent by both of the lead characters, Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. Shraddha was lovable all through the film, she has got real potentials of being a great actor, but it is Aditya Roy Kapur who steals the show. Although, the lead actors are a couple of films old in the industry, they managed to look refreshing and the romance depicted between them was adorable.

The music is the USP of this film but I assure you, there is more to this film and not just great music.
