What’s common in Shahid-Amrita and Aamir-Juhi?

Saturday, November 11, 2006 • Tamil Comments

The on-screen pairing of Shahid Kapoora and Amrita Rao reminds me of the QSQT charm of Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla. Somehow both the pairings have one thing in common. Aamir and Juhi started their career together with ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ and followed it up with ‘Love Love Love’, ‘Ishq’ and a few forgettable ones. While Shahid and Amrita too began their innings together with ‘Ishq Vishq’ while ‘Wah Life Ho To Aisi’, ‘Shikhar’ and the recent release ‘Vivah’.

The best part about both these pairs is their comfort level. Their chemistry reeks more of romance-n-compassion than overt sexuality. Some how there’s a deep level of respect and understanding of each other. And it makes for palpable viewing. ‘Vivah’ establishes Shahid and Amrita as a lead pair that can have wider ramifications on a vast audience. Whether they manage to give as big hit films as Aamir and Juhi remains to be seen, but there’s every possibility that this jodi is going to be talked about for sure.
