A seasoned performance by both Aishwarya Rai and evergreen Anil Kapoor are probably the highest points of the latest film to hit Bollywood: Satish Kaushik’s Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hain.
A great story it is! The inviolate dignity of a rape victim and its recognition in the society.
Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor have displayed a seasoned performance of refreshingly mature lovers in the film.
Aishwarya seems to be blossoming with every new film she ventures into. After her ‘Woman of substance’ splendor in Hum Dil dDe Chuke Sanam and wonderful emotive playacting in Rajiv Menon’s Kandukondain Kandukondain, her role in this latest ‘Dil’ series has proved that Ash is definitely a shade above the best!
Aishwarya plays an unfortunate victim of rape who chooses not to throw herself in the nearest well. She instead displays quiet dignity and restrains. A rare sight in high-pitched Hindi cinema. She interprets Priti- the girl next door as ordinary and yet extraordinary. Somebody who picks up the pieces of her life and moves on. She also does the sacrifice act of sending the man she loves to his mom and the woman of her choice to marry
(Sonali Bendre) so as to protect his family from bad name.
Anil Kapoor, has yet again proved his versatile evergreen talent in the film. He has more to give then a brawn and biceps show. He’s an actor with a greater sense of substance.
As expected the spotlight is taken quite a lot by Anil Kapoor who plays the angel in protecting Ash from the trials and tribulations she has to face in being a rape victim.
Had the direction been better, this amazing story could have had much more success than it seems to be bagging. But we still have to wait and watch before we determine the fate of Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai.
Ash is undoubtedly set to go places and Anil …well …he’s always on the move!
