Lean, mean teens, with hormones gushing through your jeans, get ready to spray them denims already. ‘Nasha’ unclothes the tantalizing desires of stud-boy teenagers who are out for their ‘de-virginization’ – or pehla nasha. With their boxers down and tongues twirling around. The story churns up a visual world of sex, sin, seduction and all the sensations that go with it. The hormones, moans and groans included.
Anita (Poonam) makes an entry as a summer (read: hot) activity teacher at school. In micro-minis, swaying derriere and long legs – she’s the doyen of every boy’s wet dream. Everytime she goes for a morning jog, the boys get off on a cardio of the carnal senses. Back to school, the activities include a play (foreplay to follow) on love and romance (as a bonus she throws in seduction too. Lucky boys!).
One of them, Saahil (Shivam) gets obsessed with his 25-something teacher, but soon the schoolboy fantasy turns into a fiery, passionate longing that abandons reason. Enter, Anita’s boyfriend, Sam (Vishal Bhonsle), with his libido unleashed (they peck and pet in public, quite educational, eh!). What follows is a lot of drama (mostly out-of-bed), padded with unmoving subplots and uninspiring music.
For someone who has stepped into Bollywood, right out of a bubble bath, Poonam Pandey’s performance is not ‘rousing’, but it’s not as ‘raw’ as you would expect. She holds up well (no pun intended), while going shockingly stingy on skin show. Debutant Shivam doesn’t suffer ‘performance anxiety’; he shows vulnerability as a smitten schoolboy. Sometimes you can’t tell if he’s angry or aroused, but as the movie progresses he comes into his own.
Amit Saxena’s erotic thriller shows more emotion than eroticism. It has some flashes and moods of his first outing ‘Jism’, though at a story level it falls way behind. He sexes up some moments, leaving a lot to imagination. In the second half it loses steam (even with hot action).
An 18-year-old boy is obsessed with his older sexy school teacher. Is it love, lust or just a vagary of youthful desires?
