ISHQEDARRIAAN - Its the same old love wine with a sweet twist that sadly gets lost in all routine stuff. (To The Point (TTP) Review By Bobby Sing)

30 May, 2015 | Movie Reviews / 2015 Releases

If the strange title of the film with a new meaningless word doesn’t indicate towards a confused vision behind its making then its stale story-idea surely will, that once again offers the same old love triangle heading towards a routine climax with nothing engaging enough to excite you in its two hours.
Beginning with a fairly long sequence (shot abroad) entirely in English without any Hindi subtitles, ISHQEDARRIYAAN thankfully moves back to India fast and then starts walking on the same ages old path of a rich man posing as a poor teacher ready to sacrifice his love for the girl he meets accidentally. Mahaakshay Chakraborty returning to screen fails to make any major impact through his calm act and so does Evelyn Sharma in her new ‘fully covered’ avatar trying to make an image change (on the same Friday when the other (Punjabi) release has an item number featuring her as the club dancer). Plus the rest of the cast has all average acts including a quite annoying one from an over smart kid who is visibly dressed up as a Sikh saying mature dialogues not suiting his innocent age group at all.
The cinematography tries to give the film a romantic look but the art direction doesn’t provide the much required support along with a usual background score. Musically it does have a few soothing numbers led by a complete Punjabi song (following the new norm). But you still don’t find yourself humming anything particular while walking out of the theatre. In short, the biggest flaw of the film is its entirely predictable storyline with all dry performances/direction and a sweet twist (about the misconception) that sadly gets lost in everything routine happening on the screen seen several times before.
As a result, ISHQEDARRIAAN is not only uninteresting (lost in nostalgia) but its actually quite dull to be presented as a new-age Bollywood love story to be precise.
Rating : 1 / 5
