    Ishaqzaade ...a romance gone haywire

    Ishaqzaade rating: 5 out of 10

    By Pratima Chaudhuri(15 May 2012)

    This was a tricky one since I still can’t make up my mind whether I liked it or not. On an overall note, the movie started with a bang (literally), retained the pace for next hour and a quarter and sadly, ended with a whimper.

    By general precedence love stories are memorable when they have a tragic end. Iin literature, age old Romeo-Juliet, or our very own Heer-Ranjha, in recent time Erich Segal’s celebrated Jennifer & Oliver, and in Indian movies, Raj & Rashmi of ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ and Vasu & Sapna of ‘Ek Duje Ke Liye’.

    There are some Writers/Directors who are connected to their roots, For E.g. Anuraag Kashyap, Vishal Bharadwaj, Tigmanshu Dhulia, etc. These directors try to emphasize more on the story, location, small characters, dialects and most important try to do something different than the usual run-of-the-mill concepts.

His connectivity with the local language, characters, city and the feel ... » read more

Film: "Ishaqzaade"; Cast: Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor; Writer-Director: Habib Faisal; Rating: ****

What does one do when love strikes during times of war? And make no mistake. Elections time in a small dusty town of Uttar Pradesh is akin to war. Guns are fired randomly at enemies, real or imagined. Enemies fall to the ground. Morals lie crushed under heels. And finer feelings are buried under a rubble of trouble.

Into this town, here named Almora, enters love on silent feet. Well, maybe not so silent. "Ishaqzaade" is a very noisy film.
