Nasha - Film Review

26-07-2013

After all the hype and hoopla around Poonam Pandey’s strip show for her Twitter followers, the actress repeats the act in Amit Saxena’s Nasha. Which essentially means that the novelty factor wears out after a bit, as our model-turned-actress suffers on account of over-exposure, no pun intended.

The plot is probably reminiscent of the innocent childhood infatuation which you had when you were drawn to an older person. An 18-year-old boy gets unhealthily obsessed with a 25-year-old woman in a basic gist. There is lust, mooning over the lady and Poonam’s lusciousness attempting to pull the whole film together.

Nasha - Film Review

There really is no point in elaborating upon the rest of the story. The ones who would want to veer away would know better, while the voyeuristic lot would go and watch it anyway. Amit Saxena, after the sensual Jism, comes up with Nasha, a bold venture into a territory less spoken about.

Poonam still has some way to go before she can learn the ropes of her craft. However, she lives the role of a seductress. Shivam Patil, as the young boy, does a good job. You wish he had also been a part of the film’s promotions, instead of being side-stepped.

Music (Siddharth and Sangeet Haldipur) is alright. But it would be unfair to dismiss the album altogether. The ‘Tera Nasha’ song is probably the one that will be best remembered. The production department does a decent job.

Films of India gives Nasha three stars for the producer’s convinction to make this film, for Poonam’s boldness and the aesthetics that keep the film from dipping into B-grade category.
