Plot: Nasha is the story of an 18 year old boy who falls hopelessly in love with a 25 year old woman. A woman he cannot have, but a woman he cannot help but desire. And, as is the case with desires unfulfilled, they turn into obsessions. And yet, every obsession is a lesson learnt; an experience gained. So that, in the course of coping with his unrequited love, the boy requites a lot more. And both he and the woman come of age. Beyond mere years, in the truest sense of the word. A tale as much of longing as of losing, Nasha is a story that transcends seasons and generations. Because we’ve all been there, done that. And shall continue to do so…

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'.

When Poonam Pandey went all over the social media procaliming a strip act if India won the world cup, I thought this girl might have something...when she decided to run from it, I realized she is just another sham. Just like that act of hers, her debut film too, is a sham.
I dont want to delve into the intricate details of this fine film under the garb of erotica. A group of students, a sexy teacher, boy falls in love & you know the drill that follows.
The first is all about horny kids, raging hormones, cleavage & not much more. The latter half has a bit of an emotional thought attached to it with some semblance of a story but alas, a little too late in the day to go there.
Poonam Pandey is horrific. Nor can she act, nor is she sexy. The videos she tweeted last year were far bolder than the craptastic journey that Nasha is. New boy Shivam is actually not that bad, but gets a vehicle that will never reach any journey.
I dont think anyone would waste more time than this on reading a review of Nasha. To encapsulate it in a nutshell, its not as bold as Jism, its not as entertaining as Murder & not as crude as Kya Super Kool Hai Hum, this one is just a boring film, with a wafer thin plot, a bad lead actress & a waste of precious time.
