While on the run from goons, a man and his nephew fall for a kidnapper's seductive widow.
). Part comedy, part thriller but all film noir with fine acting by Vidya Balan and Naseeruddin Shah. A love triangle of sorts involving two petty crooks on the run and a widow with a surprise ending. A bit too noir for me.
Smart, good fun, good thrills, better acting, better screenplay and classy direction, these are all the adjectives bloody suitable for ishqiya. A thumbs up to this one.
'Ishqiya' is a raw classy film. The film depicts the lives of two thieves who happens to meet a woman with a troubling past and how their acquaintance with her takes a drastic turn forms the crux of the story.
The films is shot well packed with good doses of humor and pretty good load of twists and turns that keeps you hooked to the film, yet the director wonderfully keeps the story in track and manages all of the above in perfect balance without drifting away the attention of the viewer. So engrossing is the script that you would almost forget that this film doesn't have much music, except 'Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji' which of course is destined…
Brilliantly written, well acted and superbly directed, 'Ishqiya' is one hell of a film when compared with other Bollywood offerings. Not to be missed. Go watch It. Recommended.
