Although “Nasha” is broadly falling under the category of a ‘coming of age’ film of a young boy, it also has mixed with it, the most complex theme of the physical infatuation of a teenager for an older lady, as the name itself suggests. Not that films in this sub-genre have not been made in the past, including the reverse phenomenon of older males having an infatuation for teenagers – latest in the genre being “ Nishabd Click to look into! >> Read More... ” and “ Cheeni Kum Click to look into! >> Read More... .”

Plot: Saahil ( Shivam Patil Shivam Patil is an Indian born Dancer and Actor. H >> Read More... ), is a school student in idyllic Panchgani. Like all school kids of his age he is more of fun and mischief, and even has time for his girlfriend Tia ( Sheetal Singh Sheetal Singh is a delightful Indian on-screen cha >> Read More... ). The world for Saahil, however, seems to change once he meets their dramatics teacher, Anita, during rehearsals for a drama. She is a very pleasant and lovely lady whom all of them like, but for Saahil, the attraction is like an intense infatuation, developing into an obsessive possessiveness. He even minds Samuel (Vishal Bhosle), Anita’s boyfriend being close to her. This perturbs Sam, and he hints to Anita that the boy may have fallen in love with her, but she plays it down. A rivalry builds up between them, even visible hurt results. To add to this, Saahil has to bear with his school friends’ snide remarks linking him with Anita. Hearing from his friends that Sam and Anita make love every night, he gets wild and picks up a fight with them.

To verify the truth, he lands up one night at Anita’s place only to find her making love to Sam. Worse still, Anita catches him spying on them, and next day promptly turns him out from the drama rehearsal. Hearing about this, even Tia, breaks up with Saahil. However, as things move, even Sam and Anita break up, leaving Anita to reconcile with Saahil, and she even makes love with him, before ultimately leaving the school, and advising Saahil to forget their relationship as it was not a proper one.

Review: Director Amit Saxena has handled the complex theme with a fair amount of maturity as it is not just a romantic love story between different age groups, but has a high degree of intellectual content in the interactions, although manifested in physical form. Once having established the basic theme and motivation in the film, there is not much by way of a twist that can be added in the story, but to his credit, Saxena has handled the treatment with due decency resisting the temptation to degenerate into cheap sleaze. Also, the ending has been maturely handled in a deft twist in which the protagonists are not made to unite like in conventional romantic movies. Rather they are made to look at their relationship in a different perspective.

Although Poonam Pandey gets to act in a role more to her liking and attitude, her pure histrionics do not add up to much of substance. Refreshingly, the youngster in the pack, Shivam, appearing as the young Saahil is indeed a revelation even in the complex role given to him. The supporting actors, both the younger ones and those appearing as Saahil’s parents perform their roles competently. All said and done; the movie could not rise above the level of mediocrity – nor is it bold by any stretch of the imagination.

Verdict: Thus, it would neither be able to satisfy those wanting to have a peek at some skin show and unconventional sex situations, nor those willing to settle for a conventional love story.
