Socha Na Tha - much ado about nothing

See, that is what happens if you don´t listen to your parents. Viren (Abhay Deol) loves Karen. Viren´s family wants him to marry Aditi (Ayesha Takia). Viren and Aditi decide that he will reject her at the viewing because of Karen. Aditi is totally cool with it.










And then everything goes downhill from there. The rejection causes the families to fight with each other. Viren messes up his relationship with Karen. AND since he and Aditi accidently meet again and again...










Kuch feelings start to mess with Virens heart. And now it really gets complicated.


The problem sounds familiar? Well here again we have a guy who is too scared of his dad to tell him clear out what he wants. In addition to actually not knowing what he want himself until its too late.









Socha Na Tha was Abhay´s debut movie and after seeing it and Ahista Ahista it is now clear as the ocean at the Goa beaches Birgit chanced upon a Hindi filmsong shoot today that he is definitely THE current generation Deol. Can´t wait to see him in Honeymoon Travels Pvt.Ltd.

As for Socha Na Tha. The story is a bit wooden, as is especially the second half of the film, but Abhay and Ayesha Takia are cute and if you care to a film character making a mess of his life and watch a nice timepass movie, go and give it a chance.

*Spoiler* I really really liked Viren´s part in the dialog between him and his father outside their homes gates. I never got myself into such a mess, but I can very much relate to the "Main Thaka Hoon" sentence.

Perhaps some of this will mirror your own interactions with the young Mr. Deol? At first you think "no, he's no Sanjay" and then you see him again...and again...and....

I enjoyed this little movie - as you said it is a good 'time pass'. Abhay did a better job than I thought he would & Ayesha was just so darn cute! After seeing her in 'Dor' I am eager to see other movies that she is in...

I think you'll be pleased with Abhay in 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt.' He's very sweet in it. I quite like Ayesha from 'Salaam e Ishq' - I'm really looking forward to catching them both in 'Socha Na Tha'. Thanks for the review!
