Aaina is a fantastically well-done film that has class. The movie stars Amrita Singh as Ruma, an actress hell bent in competing with her younger sister Rima (Juhi Chawla).
Aaina starts off as Ruma meets a famous author named Rajiv Suxena (Jackie Shroff) and they both fall in love. On the eve of RumaÂ´s wedding, she gets an offer that she canâ€™t refuse: the lead role in a famous directorÂ´s film. Ruma has to choose between getting married and doing the film. She chooses to star in the film and leaves Rajiv at the alter. RumaÂ´s father is quite angry (forget heartbroken) with his older daughter and tells Rajiv to forget about Ruma and marry his younger daughter, Rima instead. Much to RimaÂ´s surprise, Rajiv agrees. After the wedding, Rima and Rajiv settle down to a life of bliss and happiness in each otherâ€™s arms. Nothing could ruin their happy life together now or could it? Suddenly, Ruma comes back into their lives and learns of her sisterâ€™s marriage to Rajiv. Ruma tries everything to break Rima and Rajiv up. Will she succeed?
Acting on the parts of Juhi and Jackie are good but the real shining star is Amrita Singh. She plays the perfect stuck up Didi. If Iâ€™m not mistaken, she pulled in a Filmfare Award for her performance as Ruma. Direction is perfect as is the music. All the songs are spectacular. My personal favorite from the album is "Aaina Hai Mera Chehera" sung by Asha. The song has a nice dance by Amrita Singh also. Another favorite of mine is the immensely likeable "Yeh Raat Khush Naseeb Hai" by Lata. Watch this movie. You will enjoy it.
