This movie will make you feel exactly how one would feel looking at a white shirt smudged with mud. Fuel up your body instead of spending money on this flick or carry an aspirin to the theatre.

Plot: The movie’s plot is set in the background of Varanasi. Issaq is based on the famous love story Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. So the story remains the same. Two rival families, the Mishras and the Kashyaps. Rahul, belonged to the Mishras and Bachchi to the Kashyaps. They were never meant to fall for each other but eventually Prateik Babbar falls for Amyra Dastur “at the drop of a hat” and the actress too flips over without any effort. High on ‘bhaang’ the boy kisses the girl during Holi celebration and an immediate positive response from the girl was seen. Wow!
And after interval you don’t feel like going back. The movie obviously ends in the same Romeo-Juliet way but there is a lot of imperfections grated into the story.

Technical Aspect: direction, dialogues, soundtrack, music. The direction of the movie is not at all anywhere near director Manish Tiwary’s “Dil, Dosti etc”. The dialogues of the movie were average but Prateik failed to create his magic this time. The soundtrack is quite good. Music of the movie is good. ‘Issaq tera’ sung by Mohit Chauhan gives us a little relief in the theatre.

Performance: I would prefer not to say anything about Amyra’s performance. Being a newcomer, she gave her best and it would not be fair to judge her strictly. Prateik has given a very poor show. His acting was never so bad. Prashant Narayan and Ravi Kissen did a really good job. Makarand Deshpande and Neena Gupta were left unused.
