A very nostalgic romantic movie, Aashiqui may seem too simple nowadays, but it definitely did well over 20 years ago.

Free lance musician Rahul, coming from a broken family, meets orphan Anu at a most unexpected rendezvous, and love blooms in. The couple battle against all odds to be together, in a harsh world with harsh realities,but ultimately they do come together, which is when their egos clash. Will the two be able to maintain their Aashiqui? This is what the film is all about.

The best part is the music, which is what this film is famous for. I still remember how my mother loved the songs of this film those days....soooo nostalgic. Rahul Roy does a good job for a debut lead role. i am surprised he did not get better offers after this film.

Like an other bolly film of the 90s, editing is little weak.

Want something vintage and romantic? Then Aashiqui is for you!
