Ishaqzaade (2012) Hindi Movie Review Aggregator
Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra’s cousin Parineeti Chopra made a charming pair on the posters of their film ‘Ishaqzaade’ that has been released today. And do the critics sound impressed? Not much, from the looks of it!
Rediff thinks it does disservice to its lead heroine: “There is much craft on display, and some lovely moments, but the immense promise shown by the first half turns out as hollow as a politician’s. Soaked in sloppy sexism, the second half has the heroine repeatedly tortured — cheated, slapped, bound, gagged, shot at and abused — and yet the film decrees that she forgive.”
DNA India feels the same: “The love story drags on till a point you stop caring. After the very slow start, things start picking up towards the interval. The second half is repulsive, length wise. Watch if you must, go expecting nothing. You might just enjoy Ishqzaade.
Nowrunning agrees as well: “To sum it up, Ishaqzaade had the potential to turn into a blockbuster but sadly, the opportunity got wasted.
