Amit Saxena's Nasha is an earnest attempt at portraying an unusual relationship that falters simply because the makers confuse complexity with frequent oscillations between the overtly unilateral and elusively affirming facets the same. At the two ends of the said drama are an 18-year old boy studying at a boarding school in Panchgani (Shivam Patil comes up with a noteworthy performance) and his perpetually skimpily dressed, sexually confident drama teacher who's the object of his obsession (Poonam Pandey, in a performance with her taking the 'object' part of her character description a bit too seriously.)
Some of the best moments in the film are between the group of high school friends, for they are infused with life. The movie, frankly to my surprise, isn't an exercise in titilation, instead sifting the boy's struggle to come to terms with the fact that it's just the image of this woman that he's fixated with and that she may never be his after all, but the problem being that it's just too naïve to understand the nuances of the drama and reduces it to something you can describe with a bunch of adjectives.
Nasha is an earnest attempt that undermines the prospects of a potential intriguing drama for the maker's POV is as inept and naive as the characters'.
