is a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of a beach
town in India. It is a modern day story revolving around
relations on the internet. Director Shakadeep has chosen
a trendy topic and it could have been a super film
otherwise. It has a bit of comedy along with romance in
the movie and could appeal to audience in metros
Ishaan as Cyrus is the college swimming champ. He often
gets confused when it comes to making decisions in his
life. He wants to be a writer but his dad wants him to
be a national level swimmer.
But patience runs out and they finally decide to meet.
Somehow April manages to find out his true identity but
Cyrus fails to do so. April thinks that Cyrus is too good
for her and tries to sulk away in the fear of rejection
whereas Cyrus looks for her everywhere as she was the only
one who could understand him as a friend and as a lover...
There is a poor orphan girl at the mercy of wicked
stepmother and evil stepsisters. We also have a rich
Prince Charming as well and there is a costume dance.
The party room clock strikes at 12 midnight, and a shoe is
left behind and a search for the Cinderella girl begins,
followed by dreadful obstacles occurring in the climax.

getting close but they never reveal their true identities.

his family is his dad and he does not want to disappoint
or hurt him. He and his group of friends are quite popular
in college but he feels out of place when with them. He
needs someone in his life who can really understand him.
Ankita as April, an average girl next door who lives with
her step mother and step sisters. After her dad passed
away, they started treating her like a servant. She goes
to college and does part time work in the evening to earn
her pocket money. The only person close to her is
childhood friend Raj. April has worked hard and is trying
for scholarship for further studies but things donít go as
Will Cyrus and April finally meet? Will Cyrus accept April
for what she really is? Will April find the courage to be
herself and claim the life sheís always wanted?
Despite the attempt, Aashiqui.in is nowhere near the
Cinderella movie - which its supposed to be inspired from.
There is no melody in the music and the background score
that is composed by Nitin Kumar Gupta and Prem Hariya and
lyrics penned by Nitin Kumar Gupta.
Aashiqui.in has nothing novel in its story, nor its
presentation. The new comers are fine while the rest of
the cast are below average. It is a good watch when one
has nothing else better to do.
