Cast: Preity Zinta, Rhehan Malliek, Isabel Adjani
Director: Prem Raj
Plot: Ishkq in Paris is about Ishkq (Preity Zinta) and Akash Kapoor (Rhehan Malliek), two individuals who are afraid of ‘marriage’ and try to keep away from commitments. They meet in a train to Paris as strangers and decide to spend a night together without sharing personal details and also decide that they would never meet again after this night. And they go around the beautiful city of love, dancing, drinking and having fun! By the end of the night, they share their personal lives and Akash goes back. He visits Paris again for his friend’s wedding and the story starts here. The background part of the movie surrounds Preity’s mother’s tragic separation from her husband and how she suffers being alone though she’s a famous French actress. The end is about how Akash changes Ishkq’s life by making her realise that acceptance of other people in her life will help her get over the tragic memories of her mom and dad.
Performance: Preity Zinta’s comeback to the industry with this movie is sort of average. We’ve seen her exceptional acting skills before which was nowhere to found in this movie. The newcomer (Rhehan Malliek) also did a pretty average job. His dialogues were very cheesy but the movie was meant to be like that, you know, like the ‘cute romantic love story’.
The story is predictable and boring. The music is okay, not that amazing at all. Most of the dialogues are uber-romantic and a few of them are quite witty. It’s just a 96 minute flick which, for me, was the best part of my experience in Ishkq In Paris.
Bottom-line: Predictable, boring but if you want to see Miss Zinta, go for it. If you don’t want to go for it, you can catch our walkthrough of the movie here!
