Honest review of Chahaat Ek Nasha

I watched this movie from the DVD.Perhaps I can claim to be making an honest review of this movie,.as I am watching this movie without being aware who are the actors/actresses etc, the publicity, whether the movie was a hit or flop. Infact I was never aware Chahaat Ek Nasha was even released!So its not a biased review.

So when it started, I was kind of dissappointed to see faces who were not establised.Till Manisha Koirala entered the scene.It became a relief to see one established name, and I decided to continue watching instead of stopping the DVD.

Well how was the movie? Ok I was engrossed to this for about 1 hour. '' A'' loves ''B'', and calls her ''best friend'', and has affair with her.But falls in ''love'' with ''C'', and decides to marry her.Then what is the relation of ''A'' and ''B''???I am confused.''Best Friend'' someone with whom u have affiars.Someone with whom u just proposed for marriage, and then the next scene u have ''A'' telling ''B'' that he is happy to announce his marriage to ''C'', and expects ''B'' to celebrate as well......

Enter ''D'', who loves ''B''.But no one loves ''D''.

Sorry if I am confusing u. Even I am confused.

ok let me tell u who are A,B,C,D....its Aryan Vaid,Manisha Koirala,Preeti Jhangiani. and Sharad Kapoor respectively.

Manisha Koirala plays a top pop star, and Aryan Vaid runs the business and made a lot of money from her, till she started making flops and becomes a fading star.Aryan decides to search for fresh talents, and spots Preeti who brings back profits.

Sharad Kapoor plays the bdyguard of Manisha Koirala.

Preeti was a die hard fan of Manisha, but eventually becomes a pop star herself better than her, and replaces her in everything including her boyfriend....

So thats it the movie.Manisha gets jealous not only because she loses her love, but also because of her fading career.So she drinks, smokes etc.

Somehow the role suited Manisha very much.She played the role of the fading star who gets jealous, and is always drunk, and she acted very convincing. No idea whether she was playing her real life, but I cant expect a top actress to do this kind of role at the peak of her career. Only a fading star can play it convincingly....

Amongst the above actors, I'd say Sharad Kaporr did a good job.why? Because he hardly acted!!!He was silent most of the time and used his eyes to express.I think he is one of the under used actors.

Preeti Jnangiani and Aryan Vaid were ok.

But what went wrong was towards the end we get illogical nonsense climax. Sharad Kapoor cannot bear to see Manisha Koirala suffering so much and decides to kill Aryan Vaid, the cause of her sorrow.And it was during this time he expresses his love to Manisha Koirala,

But Manisha kills Sharad Kapoor, and then kills herself.The story ends.....its nonsense.neither its a comedy nor its a tragedy.It falls into a new category:- Nonsense.

A better ending would have been....Sharad Kapoor somehow tries to change Manisha Koirala to quit her drinking and re-invent her career, and also perhaps then propose to her. Then we have Manisha Koirala back to fame and success, and preeti & Aryan gets happily married ..........anyways I am no scriptwriter.I just felt surprised that one can waste lakhs or crores of rupees to make a movie with a stupid climax....
