Nasha Movie Review: Intoxicating For Its Target Audience, But for rest...

Ratings : star


B.K Adarsh's 'Gupt Gyan' (1974) was one of the first films based on sex education. Slowly these films conveying social message attached to it started to fade out and bold films dealing with adultery made in artistic manner, started rising. Films like Chetna, Dastak, Zaroorat, Yeh Nazdeekiyaan, Ek Baar Phir and many more were perfect example. From mid-80's B-grade adult films were made catering to the lower group audience. These films were made with shoe-string budget and recovered their money with minimal profit. The makers supplied what their audience demanded; even despite of censor regulations they used to insert the nudity at the cinema hall. With release of Bipasha Basu's 'Jism' which took this genre to an upper level, nudity took a back step. Love making scenes were shot in more artistic manner giving titillation to its audience. The director of 'Jism' Amit Saxena comes back after a gap of a decade with his latest film 'Nasha' starring Twitter star 'Poonam Pandey'. So let's find out whether the director will manage to give us something different and artistic on lines of his last venture or might end up giving its audience another disappointing film like 'Jism 2', where the movie was total different than what was promised by the film makers.

Nasha Review


'Nasha' is story of an 18 year old boy Sahil {Shivam Patil} whose life changes with entry of his new drama teacher Anita {Poonam Pandey}. Sahil starts lusting for Anita and thus faces turmoil's in his life. He starts to drift away from his friends and even his girlfriend. Before he could understand what going on in his life, Anita's boyfriend Samuel comes in the picture. What happens next is what the entire film is all about.

Screenplay & Technicalities:

Story has few shades from 'Ek Choti Si Love Story' or one might even remember the Rishi-Simi track from Raj Kapoor's 'Mera Naam Joker'. The basic story line is short, but is stretched in order to make it a full length feature film. For general audience, there are few good moments like the teens doing fun in school, Samuel teasing Sahil, post interval part, Poonam scolding Sahil followed by his frustration. But for its targeted audience this movie contains almost everything right from Poonam's bathing scene, exercising, tempting, lap dance, seduction and love making scenes. But all these scenes lacked the sensuousness and were more on B-grade level along with masturbation and fantasy scenes. Family audience and females will be highly offended with these scenes. The lust portrayed in eyes of the teens looked cheap and crass. The repetitive dream scenes start to irritate you after a given point. Camera work is average and could have done much better.

Music & Direction:

Music is soothing but not on lines of 'Jism' which has some fantastic tracks. Still 'Tera Nasha' is wonderful along with 'Laila'. 'Goti' and 'Love' resembles the youth but ends up being trashy. Background music of this film is fantastic.

Director Amit Saxena sets up a decent premise for his adult love story. But the execution and the performance by the lead pair portrayed seemed like a semi porn film. His first half of this film will satisfy the single screen audience and all those front benchers who feast on such types of films. They might get additional bonus in form of watching an old horror films bathing scene on screen featuring Huma Khan. The second half tries to cater the multiplex audience and due to bad execution fails to connect with them. It's sad that instead of growing time, the director has faded out.


Poonam Pandey has been posting lots of semi nude photographs on her Twitter handle promising her audience to experience more than this in the film. She partly succeeds and do some bold scenes and lot of skin show. When it comes to performance she is pretty decent in terms of her debut film, but on overall basis, a big letdown. Shivam Patil looks cute, but gives some of the dumbest expression on screen. The actor playing Poonam Pandey's boyfriend was highly irritating. Shivam's friends are fine, but not great. Paritosh Sand is superb in his small role.

So bol meri "FILMI KHOPDI" iss film mein kitna hain Dum?

Dum hain, for all those who love such semi-porn film. This movie will satisfy them and all those Poonam Pandey fans. They will be highly intoxicated, whereas for others it might end up as a bad hangover as it's nowhere in comparison to 2003's 'Jism'. Would advise the family audience to strictly avoid this movie.
