Review-Ishqiya

Posted in Reviews on January 30, 2010 by topazbol

BABBAN-Tujhe yahan pe red light area pata hai

NANDU-Paise lageinge

BABBAN-Mein kaun sa  fakir ka katora le ke jaa raha hoon

NANDU-Main sau rupaiye loonga

BABBAN-Abe teri kaun lega

Above conversation sums up the fun Ishqiya has to offer. Ishqiya is so unabashedly in your face that it stuns you. I felt a constant urge of, please give me more, that when the movie ended I was  unwilling to leave the auditorium. Ishqiya is so genuine in its setting and milieu that you wonder how much detailing has gone to make it look perfect. Lead actors mannerism and gait , cheesy/crass dialogues catches your attention from the opening sequence, as the movie progresses you  get so glued with  proceedings that you don’t want any break  ,forget an interval ,to break the momentum. This to me is the biggest thing any director can achieve when telling a story.

Ishqiya is a story of 2 small time crooks Khalujaan and Babban , a widow Krishna and how their world changes when they come in contact with each other. A drama of love ,kidnapping  ,revenge, heartbreak and redemption unfolds which leaves you spellbound.

All the principal stars have done excellent job .Nasser as Khalujaan is so convincing that you wonder anyone would have played it so effortlessly. Arshad as Babban is just superb ,after circuit people are going to cherish  this performance for longtime. Vidya Balan as Krishna is mind blowing, she once again proves that she is one of the finest performers we have today. she actually is the soul of the film and whole film revolves around her.Actor who plays Nandu is sensation in a making He is pure natural and dynamite in a small role.

Music by Vishal is extraordinary. Iban e batuta and Dil to bachcha hai are pick of the lot.  Both songs should feature in top ten songs of 2010. Mohana Krishna’s cinematography is first-rate. Dialogues by Vishal Bhardwaj  are authentic  and a few leaves in split while some are worth a whistle.

Ishqiya is a film made with lot of heart and effort and it shows. Abhishek Chaubey deserves applause for his effort.

Only blemish in smooth narrative of Ishqiya is its climax. Ishqiya deserved a better ending and a hurried finish leaves you with soar taste. Still Ishqiya deserves to be watched and that to on big screen so that it eventually makes money for its stakeholders and give them zeal to make such gems more often.

Rating-***1/2
