Ishaqzaade- Movie Review


I’d only seen the ‘Pareshan’ song and Parineeti Chopra’s superb performance in ‘Ladies vs Ricky Behl’ before the release of ‘Ishaqzaade’. I didn’t have any idea what the movie was about but it had a very raw feel to it which didn’t look very appealing to be honest.  Now that I went to watch it, here’s my review of it.

Story in short? Parma (Hindu boy) and Zoya (Muslim girl) belong to a small town called Almor where everyone has guns and politics plays a huge role. Both their fathers are politicians and hate each other and so by default, so do Parma and Zoya. In a turn of events, they get married and then things get pretty messed up for them.

To start with, the performances were superb! Parineeti Chopra is a supremely talented actress, very natural and full of life. I loved her in the movie and she totally stole the show! Arjun Kapoor is good too and has a very raw look which is appealing somehow. Together they have great chemistry that makes every scene with them a treat to watch.

Except for the first half an hour when I was wondering why I went for the movie, I was gripped throughout. But then it only got better. In fact, it picked up pace just a little before the interval. Other than that, superb direction, editing and dialogues, realistic setting, costumes and make-up, outstanding performances by both Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor and average music by Amit Trivedi.

To me, it was like another Romeo & Juliet, with quite a bit of violence but charming in its own way. I really liked it and totally recommend it!

Rating– 3.5/5
