Story line AISHA is an adaption of the British novel, Emma by Jane Austen. The movie has been shot in Delhi, Hrishikesh and Mumbai. Aisha is about a twenty-five year old Delhi girl Aisha Kapoor, an incorrigible meddler who believes that “there is nothing more beautiful than a match well made.” Aisha has unmatched style and social graces. She is an artist, loves gardening and knows her fashion. She can make her Anamika Khanna blend well with her Chanel and a Jimmy Choo with ease. She is charming and everyone wants to be her friend and every guy wants to date her. However, she hasn’t found the time or space in her life for a man because she’s too busy trying to fix everyone else’s life. Having lost her mother at a young age, and her elder sister married off, she is now the mother hen and looks after her father and the house well. She refers to every activity as her “project”. She believes she knows best and she believes she is the only one who can make anything happen. After successfully marrying her Masi to a widower Colonel, Aisha sets her sights on pairing her plain, new, uncultured friend, Shefali, with the local rich boy Randhir “Patel nagar ka papu”. Randhir, however, has other ideas, as does Aisha’s closest friend, Pinky, a pessimistic loud-mouthed girl. Enter Arjun, her childhood friend who reprimands Aisha on her ‘projects’ and mismatches. Arjun and Aisha share an antagonistic relationship that teeters between subtle flirtations and all out verbal digs at one another.
Arjun is the responsible and has a successful career. He is the kind of guy who will never stray and will be in love with his woman for the rest of his life. An every woman’s dream man! Just as Arjun becomes over protective and uncomfortably close to his colleague, Aarti, in comes Dhruv, the quintessential player with a constant smirk on his face and extra strong gel in his hair that won’t allow a strand to go out of place. He’s the bad boy that gives Aisha a run for her comebacks, leaves her jelly kneed and makes her think that maybe it’s time she gave her own love life a chance. But as all girls learn, if a boy isn’t going to get tamed, he’s going to change his lair ever so often.
As Aisha’s romantic angles go ridiculously wrong, triangles dissect and quadrangles form, she realizes that she is not very good at matchmaking. She makes a hilariously tangled mess of every body’s lives around her only to realize that she may lose the perfect match for herself. As in a Jane Austen story, it’s obvious that won’t last for long. Indeed, before the two hours are up, the title character has become enmeshed in a number of romantic entanglements, and it doesn’t take a genius to uncover the identity of Aisha’s true soul mate. Aisha then has the daunting task of finding her own path in front of her, even if it means cutting a route through the thick swampy jungles of the mess she has created. At least she’ll do it while looking good and smelling great.
