I saw this film on my dearest friend's birthday, along with my gang! Having heard a lot of 'praise' and 'appreciation' for the movie, we decided to ditch the Blockbuster, 'Kahaani', and went for this flick, coz we wanted to watch a 'fun' film! And, we were utterly disappointed!
Ishq (not to be confused with the hindi comedy, Ishq) stars 'jayam' star Nitin and the extremely talented, Nithya Menon. The film is slow to death in the first half, with nothing novel to look forward to. The dialogues lack lustre and the sequences are too filmy to be believed in!
The director takes more liberty than one can afford to, and completely hijacks the movie away from a certain steered direction and does so by testing the patience of the audience. There are mind-boggling number of flaws and logic is thrown for a toss!
The second half is a little better comparatively, with a few laughs, but is tad boring. There is nothing new or different here, which one has not seen in any movie before. Its a movie, which people will enjoy only if they are mad or madly in love and have come to watch the movie with their beloveds.
I know there's hardly anyone who reads my blog (:P), but, i hope some random guy might read this and save himself/herself from 2 and a half hours of sheer torture! Its disappointing to see two talented actors being wasted in such an idiotic film!
MY RATING - 1/5 ( 0.5 is for the cinematography and 0.5 for the the actors for putting in their valued efforts.)
