Born to Hate... Destined to Love
While fighting for the political supremacy of their respective families, a Hindu man and a Muslim woman share a forbidden romance.
Ishaqzaade is a story that portrays a terrible journey of two people who fall in love and the hurdles they have to overcome. It's a very bold romantic film. Is it a good movie? Yes, it is.
The movie could have failed terribly if it didn't have the right people to act. Arjun Kapoor is relaxed and completely at ease as Parma and he delivers a decent debut. Parineeti Chopra as the fearless Zoya gives us a new dimension to the Indian heroine. The chemistry between them lends more of a sense of pride than sympathy. Cinematography is decent.
The areas where the movie falters is in editing. It was too fast, felt like a rush even, that I just…
A film designed to be interpreted. Phallic symbolism and gender equation inconsistently handled. Men = Animals. Women = Humans. An example of our modern urban male's guilt.

Star-crossed lovers from warring families. A rustic setting. Terrific music. A super female lead. A decent male debut. Yet somehow the ingredients don't quite conjure up the desired dish. The last quarter really ruins what was otherwise a decent enough flick.
