Socha Na Tha

Socha na tha
Director: Imtiaz Ali
Writer: Imtiaz Ali
Stars: Abhay Deol, Ayesha Takia, Ayesha Jhulka
Socha Na Tha (2005) is the debut movie of the director Imtiaz Ali and Abhay Deol. This charming movie is just like a gust of fresh air where love is innocent, the lovers are having hearts of gold and even their family members are no stereotyped villains. Troubles are there, confusions are there, indecisiveness is there, misunderstandings and consequential quarrels are there but the most important thing is that everything is realistic and everybody is human. And to err is human, we all know.That’s the quality which makes this movie a winner.
Socha Na Tha (not thought of) is the love story of a confused young boy Viren (Abhay Deol) and an orphan girl fostered by her uncles and aunts – Aditi (Ayesha Taakia). Their parents / guardians want them to get married with each other but they have other plans. On one hand, Aditi likes someone else (Shaayan Munshi), on the other, Viren feels infatuated to a Christian girl – Karen (Apoorva Jha). Viren seeks the help of his sister-in-law (Ayesha Zulka) to get out of the proposed matrimonial alliance with Aditi and finally manages not only the consent of Karen but also her parents as well as his parents for their marriage. But meantime, Viren and Aditi have become friends. Now Viren expressively and Aditi silently feel that in fact, they have fallen in love with each other. Innocent Viren with a clean heart does many illogical things to first repel Karen and her parents and then do the repair work in case of Aditi. However the misunderstandings between their families keep on increasing. Finally, they go away from each other. Viren transforms himself into a mature and successful youth but now Aditi who was earlier much more mature and sensible than Viren, approaches him to unite with him. What happens thereafter is the climax.
Director Imtiaz Ali has been fully successful in his mission of presenting a touching and lovable with his Hilarious moments, Laughs , Tender feelings, Emotions. The late understanding of things as well as the immature actions of the protagonist create misunderstandings that result in negative reactions of those who are in one way or the other, related to the lead pair. In fact, all the characters involved in the script are good by heart. The ending scene evidences it in the most simple and straight manner.
Socha Na Tha is a movie which you will love like anything if watch with not so high expectations. As far as I am concerned, I felt like flowing with the lead characters and the things happening to (and by) them in the story, empathizing with them. Love is like the fresh cow milk when innocent. And let’s not allow its innocence to be tainted by any means.
Abhay Deol has proved in his debut movie itself that he’s the horse for a long race. With his long hair and innocent raw face, he not only looks dashing but his performance is so impressive as if he was born before a camera. Ayesha Taakia, with her childish looks, is not far behind. The movie has one more Ayesha – the veteran heroine, Ayesha Zulka as the Bhabhi of the hero and she has done exceedingly well in the meaty role assigned to her. The complete supporting cast has done justice to the respective roles but mainly the movie belongs to the lead pair which has lightened up the screen with its amazing chemistry.
On the whole, Socha Na Tha is a movie of debutant Imtiaz Ali and Abhay Deol who put together their heart and soul with some great work; unfortunately it gets un-noticed with some poor marketing from the production team and it misses the bus at the box-office- goes as a FLOP. It is one of the movies which I feel should be a hit and only fails because of poor marketing skills.
