Career

She eventually landed the lead female role in the 2009 Hindi horror film ''1920'' opposite Rajneesh Duggal which was directed by Vikram Bhatt. Her portrayal of a possessed woman was unanimously praised by critics. ''The Times of India''s Nikhat Kazmi commented that she "delivers a consummate performance", and labelled her performance as "excellent", "[exceptionally] brilliant", and "incredibly convincing". The film was a commercial success, Bhatt's first box office hit after six years and 10 films, and earned Sharma a Best Female Debut nomination at the 54th Filmfare Awards. Three years later, she had her next release, ''Phhir'', again a horror film, which saw her collaborating with Vikram Bhatt, who wrote the film, and her, ''1920'' co-star Rajneesh Duggal. ''Phhir'', however, was not as well received as, ''1920'', opening to negative reviews, and failing at the box office, with Sharma getting mixed response for her performance. While Sujata Chakrabarti wrote that "not even for a minute does she exude the intensity of being a psychic", Sify's Sonia Chopra stated that she was "the only one in the film who can act". Her third film, the romantic comedy ''Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke'', released another two years later and was a critical and financial failure.In 2014, Sharma had two releases: Puri Jagannadh's romance ''Heart Attack'' opposite Nithiin, that marked her Telugu debut and a Hindi film ''Hasee Toh Phasee'' alongside Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra, which released seven days later and featured her in a supporting role. Taran Adarsh of ''Bollywood Hungama'' stated, "Adah Sharma is a natural. One strongly feels she hasn't got her due, despite leaving an impression in every film she's featured in." She described her character in the former as "vulnerable, yet extremely sexy" and worked for two months on her Telugu diction. Sharma received positive remarks for her performance in ''Heart Attack'', with ''The Times of India'' writing that she "looks like a natural actress and does a decent job" while 123telugu.com felt that she had made a "stunning debut".
