    Sahil Mehra (Vardhan Puri) and Mittee Deora (Shivaleeka Oberoi) are both hospitality students in a college in Shimla. He’s the smalltown boy with a golden heart. She is the ambitious city girl. They seem destined for each other, and therein starts a series of dark and twisted events.

    This convoluted love is a tale that deserves to be told. What starts as a normal girl-meets-boy cute romance soon segues into the thriller category. The screenplay by Puri and director Ruparel steers the story with dexterity.

    The plot line of 'Yeh Saali Aashiqui' flips your regular love story — it is one that is not only dark, but also demands revenge.

    Puri, the late actor Amrish Puri’s grandson, is convincing as a softspoken guy hopelessly in love, and then, as the movie progresses, an angry young man wanting revenge. Oberoi is a complete surprise during the second half. For their debut film, both Puri and Oberoi have struck a confident pose.

    The music and background score lend weight to some of the highlights of the film.

    More attention to detail could have helped turn out a more polished product, but even in its current form, Yeh Saali Aashiqui manages to keep you hooked.
