Poonam Pandey’s Nasha, her Bollywood debut, is eventually out to entertain you. Does it entertain you? Well, the answer is ‘yes’, but this entertainment is only for the spices and skin-show by the leading lady of the film, Poonam Pandey, who is notorious for her bolder attitude and showing skin. Nasha is nothing more than plenty of flesh-show, which you find all over in the movie. Poonam was much curious and excited for her cinematic debut and now her dream debut is out.

The plot of Nasha is not novel at all. The story borrows the theme from the films like Mera Nam Joker and Ek Chhoti Si Love Story. Director Amit Saxena and writer Ajit Rajpal did not try to make it a unique venture. Well, in these kinds of movies where the skin-show is the main focus, how can you inject a story in it? Thus how the writer and director could make a difference?

Nasha talks about a young guy’s desperate and crazy love wrapped with lust with a mature woman. Reading this, you will automatically remind of Ek Chhoti Si Love Story and then your thoughts would travel back to Mera Nam Joker.

An 18-year-old guy (Shivam Patil) sees a woman of 25 years age (Poonam Pandey) and starts loving her crazily. He then begins dreaming and fantasizing about her all the time. Then follows mad love, lust, jealousy and possessiveness.

The storyline is not new at all – we have seen a number of Bollywood films in the past on this subject. Script is weak. Ajit Rajpal is the man behind the weak script writing. Amit Saxena’s direction is not up to the mark. Dialogues are okay. Editing is below average. Music is simply a waste. Cinematography is just about okay.

Poonam Pandey is the main focus of the film. She tries hard to fetch in the attention of the viewers with her dare to bare attitude and plenty of skin-show. She succeeds in her efforts, as her body-revealing is what gets the viewers glued to the screens otherwise there is nothing to watch on screen. Shivam attracts with his marvelous piece of acting. Vishal Bhonsle is fine. Rest of the cast is average.

Final Verdict:

On the whole, Nasha is a waste of time and money. There is only a skin-show in the film and nothing else.
