Sahil Mehra (Vardhan Puri) is a hotel management student in Shimla. He is very kind hearted and always helpful to others. He helps the needy, feeds the poor, makes hefty donations, doesn’t smoke or drink, and detests cheaters. When Sahil met Mittee Deora (Shivaleeka Oberoi) in hotel management school, it was love at first sight for both of them. But an unfortunate event at school turns their romance into a nightmare. It changes their lives and thus story takes an interesting turn. It starts a series of dark, twisted and very gripping chain of bizarre events. As heartbreak, betrayal and retribution collide, the lives of both the characters change drastically and a game of tit for tat starts. The climax is interesting.
Sahil Mehra (Vardhan Puri) has shown his acting talent very well. He has played successfully many shades of his characters – a soft-spoken lover boy, an angry young man out for revenge, an evil to fight. He never lost his grip. He is brilliant as a debutant actor. He is a talent to watch out for.
Shivaleeka was a slow starter, but surprises during the second half.
The story line of ‘Yeh Saali Aashiqui’ is perfectly woven. The love story is very brutal, vengeful and evil. This romantic thriller is original and director Cherag Ruparel has done extremely superb work. He has perfectly cast his characters and didn’t waste time on common things in story. The story keeps us engaged throughout the show time. The music and background score of the film are good and already popular.
The film is worth watching and old time Amrish Puri fans may like his grandson’s debut in this movie.
