There are very few things in this universe that actually interest or move a writer / poet. It’s no different with me. For me, things are never like,
WOW! I am so happyyy!!!
OMG!! I feel on top on the world!!!
That’s why when I watched “Aashiqui 2,” my heart skipped a beat. It was like me waking up after a long slumber. Hibernation.
The film was not just another film .
For me , it was my perfect love story. PERFECT. I am not here to review the film or flatter myself by announcing to the world on how outwardly moving I thought it was. After a very long time, I saw a film that had me crying, not from my eyes, but my soul.
After a very long time, I saw a saga that was based on just love. No bloodshed , no unrealistic promises and no hogwash dialogues . The film hit that chord which no film had strung in a long time in me.
It beautifully spoke of how much and how madly two people can love each other. It elucidated how fragile that feeling is when you see your loved one crumble there in front of you . At some point we all have must seen that or gone through it .
The ethereal moment when Rahul Jayekar confesses his love for Aarohi Shirke .
That feeling of anger when Rahul Jayekar overhears people gossiping on how he used Aarohi for his own fun and frolic, that helplessness when a woman cannot help her man or that man who could not help himself.
Aashiqui 2 is all that. A painful, emotionally loaded drama with music (links below) , or should I say odes to love, that illustrate how love triumphs not only through physical journeys but also often comes out in flying colors through distances or loss.
Sometimes….love doesn’t need presence. All it needs is ………..Aashiqui .
