Director Habib Faisal chose a unique script and wonderful location to base his plot upon. As Ishaqzaade was shot in Uttar Pradesh, it was easier to give an authentic feel. There is a natural rustic flavour in the way the story is handled and that is the USP of Ishaqzaade.
The raw and rustic charm of North India has been captured brilliantly by cinematographer Hemant Chaturvedi. Background score by Ranjit Barot is peppy. Amit Trivedi's music is very soothing to the ears. 'Pareshan', 'Ishaqzaade', 'Chokra Jawan' and 'Aafton Ke Parinde' are very melodious songs.
Ishaqzaade is a passionate love story between two different and yet alike two rebellious individuals. Both Parma (Arjun Kapoor) and Zoya (Parineeti Chopra) have been taught since their childhood to hate each other as there is a cold war between both political families. Though the story begins with both youngsters ready to kill each other, something happens and they fall in love. Will the families accept their love and will the villagers allow them to live in peace since both of them belong to different caste. Watch Ishaqzaade to know what happens.
The chemistry between Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra is excellent. Parineeti Chopra is outstanding! Watch her emote and deliver her dialogues. Parineeti definitely has the 'ingredient' to become the number one actress in Bollywood. Arjun Kapoor is fantastic too. He does complete justice to his role. Gauhar Khan is good and dances very well. Habib Faisal has managed to extract the best performance from all other actors as well.
Though Ishaqzaade is not the best film of the year, it's worth a watch. You won't be disappointed.
